First Week Of December: Favorites

December has been great so far and I’m discovering so many new things! This post has a strong focus on a few items and products I’ve bee loving! What are some things you’ve been gravitating towards this season? Leave a comment down below letting me know what I need to try!

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year”ย 

Pur Cosmetics Etienne Palette

This palette has everything you need to sparkle this holiday season. From mattes to shimmers and everyday essentials, these shades are great for anyone! My two go-to’s have been “Zenon” (a brassy gold) and “Bossy” (a bright silver) I can’t get over how pigmented these colors are and how smooth they apply to the skin. Definitely something I’ll be using for the rest of winter!

Pur Cosmetics Lip Gloss Stick

Moving on to more Pur, their lip gloss sticks are to die for. One I always keep in my bag is in the shade Honey Pie. It’s a dusty blush shade with the slightest bit of shine. It’s not as harsh as a liquid lipstick and has a more natural tone to it. Forever a fan!

Yellow Anything

Recently, I picked up this yellow top from Target in their clearance section. Since then, I’ve been obsessed with the color. I don’t normally go for pops of anything really but something about it makes me feel good!

Toasted White Chocolate Mocha

I’m most of the time traditional when it comes to my holiday drinks from Starbucks. The skinny peppermint mocha is my jam. However, my new favorite is slowly becoming this toasty drink. It hits the nail on the head with being festive because it’s topped with cranberries. In addition to that, the beverage is not overly sweet. Perfect for these cold snowy mornings!

Greek Yogurt With Honey

I’ve always had a sweet tooth, and it can sometimes be hard for me to contain it. So, in order to cheat myself out of havingreal dessert, I’ve been reaching for non-fat, plain, Greek yogurt instead with a drizzle of wildflower honey. It’s amazing and probably healthier than something I’d normally grab! Give it a try and let me know what you think!

“December: The month of joy, happiness, and to finish what you started”ย

Decorating The Tree 2017

The most wonderful time of the year is upon us and you shouldn’t be surprised that I’m putting this post up early! Christmas is my holiday, winter is my season, and decorating the house (any chance I get) is what I’m excellent at! All this holly jolly has made me eager to share what my tree looks like and what theme I decided to go with – sparkles, silvers, and golds!

Here are just a few of my sentimental or unique ornaments I’ve always been fond of throughout the years!

The infamous lucky pickle. If you don’t have one of these on your tree, are you even doing Christmas right?! I’m not sure where this tradition stemmed from but I’ve had a pickle on all of the trees I’ve ever owned. If you’re looking for one, the dollar store typically has them for super inexpensive!

My “to the lodge” ornament is definitely special because it was one of the first ornaments I purchased after my husband and I moved into our first home! We don’t live in a lodge or anything similar for that matter; it just fits our rustic deco style SO well! Pretty sure I picked this guy up from Target for a few bucks!

The hubby is a giant Packers fan so it’s no surprise this is tucked in our tree branches. I can live with a little green and yellow considering the rest of the tree is trimmed to my liking + to be honest, football is growing on me!

I’m positive many of you have at least one of these snowmen on your own tree. Aren’t they just the cutest?!

There’s an abundance of fishing ornaments on the tree. I’m not a fisherman but…the husband is and marriage is all about compromise. Am I right?! Although I had an overwhelming and exact theme this year, I think it’s important to incorporate memories from past Christmas’s.

What’s your favorite thing about the Holidays?! Do you celebrate Christmas or something different?! I wanna know in the comments below what your traditions and favorites are during this fun time of year!

See you in my next post!
