Blogging For The Holidays!

3 Dec


Can you believe it’s already December? This lady at work was telling me this morning how she’s already completely finished with all of her holiday shopping and decorating. I haven’t even started yet. Heck, I just started listening to Christmas music.

Well, if you couldn’t already tell, thoughts of Christmas are flooding the internets. Here are some of my favorite finds so far…

//Great Holiday Posts//

Rockstar Diaries is one of my favorite blogs, and her family is probably the cutest ever! Check out her post on Traveling With Littles.

Mucho Mucho, Bueno Bueno is full of cute DIY’s. I’m really loving this DIY Christmas Tree!

Every year I look forward to A Cup Of Jo’s Holiday Gift Guide. This post is the first of her series: Your Beautiful Mom, Who Adopts Your Slang And Still Writes Hand Written Letters

I would love to recieve anything on Bleubird Vintage’s Gift Guide: For A Friend or Sister

//Holiday Giveaways//

There are so many giveaways going around the internets this week! I always get myself a little something, do you? Here are some great things that you could win for yourself or a loved one – good luck!

Arielle Elise is hosting a Christmas Giveaway that I’m drooling over! She’s giving one lucky reader 7 items, my favorites including a Starbucks gift card and cozy arm warmers.

Bridgette is hosting another Christmas Giveaway that is just as awesome in my opinion. I really want the oversized map she’s giving away from I Screen, You Screen!

//Wrap It Up//

Wrapping is kind of the best part of a gift, no? Here are some of my favorite ways to package that special gift:

This tape is perfect for a simple, brown paper package.

I’m a sucker for Chevron.

This Vintage Christmas Tin would be a perfect way to stash holiday cookies.

These bags are basic yet lovely – and they’re recycled!

And what about creating your own wrapping paper?

//Handmade Gift Guide//

I kind of feel out of the loop when looking at gift guides, because while they’re fun to look at… I tend to prefer gifts that are handmade or thrifted. So, in hopes of other souls out there who are a little more like me, here is one for our people!

Friday Favorites <333

30 Nov

Happy Friday! I was actually gifted the laptop I’m posting on today by my amazing boyfriend – yes, you should be super jealous and no you can’t have him 😉 I haven’t done a Friday Favorites post in a few weeks… so I hope you enjoy this weeks post as much as I do!

Here’s what I’m loving this week…

I really want to gift myself THIS Cutout Monogram Necklace… is that wrong?

Ok, yes. I’m girly. Sorry but THIS is adorable:


Eeeep… I want one!!

I’ve always wanted a pink Christmas Tree…

Can I just get lost in THIS photo, please? (it reminds me of a snow globe village!)

I’m excited to see THIS movie on Saturday:

I can’t believe next week is December! I’m loving THIS holiday gift guide based around my favorite holiday movie, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation!

If you like Christmas Music, Hey, It’s Christmas! has released their 3rd volume! This is a free compilation from various artists and it’s really helped me get into the spirit this year.

THIS tumblr has me hooked – I’m a sucker for anything cute and romantic!

Also, THIS tumblr is an amazing find and I’ve been obsessing over it all week! It’s the ultimate all-things-girly mecca, in my opinion.

What are you loving this week?
