a few of my favorite things | december & cyber Monday sales

Happy December lovelies!

Hoping you all had a wonderful holiday weekend.  With the season officially upon us, I wanted to share some of my favorite things of the moment with you.  I’ve also listed a few great sales at the bottom of this post taking place today for cyber-Monday that are worth mentioning.



1 | I am thinking of getting my first Christmas tree this year {I’ve never had one of my own}. As a result I am searching for the perfect tree baubles!  This non-traditional color palette of those above are glamorously festive and would make up a beautiful tree. {image via pintrest}
2 | These J.Crew Collection snakeskin pumps are a great party shoe for the holiday season.  Not too high either which will make standing during cocktail parties more pleasant {30% off}.
3 | With all of the holiday parties, eating healthy can be difficult.  I try to make up for it on  “non-party” days.  This Cinnamon-Almond breakfast shake from Gwenyth Paltrow’s cleanse recipes is one of my new favorite recipes for breakfast or a snack.
4 | I received a BKR water bottle as a gift in the spring and not only love the look of it but it’s made of glass which is the way to go for waterbottles.  I use it all the time for the gym and as I go about my daily routine.  This crush colored BKR bottle is so much fun and would make a great gift {25% off} or for additional colors you can find them here.
5 | NYFW is just around the corner and this runway notebook from Smythson is a sophisticated and stylish option for anyone in the fashion world for taking notes during fashion week, in daily meetings and beyond. Perfect for any fashionista!
6 | If you are hosting a party this year, you must try these.  I actually had them last year and they are a great spin on the traditional “holiday cracker”.   It makes for a chic holiday party favor loaded with fun surprises such as: a party horn, a wish necklace, a chic hair tie  a ring, earring or barrette (styles vary) and a Jouer mini lip gloss.

    First tree! The color palette of the ornaments that you have in this post are vintage – 50’s/early 60’s. I have many of my family’s. Have fun – we pick a different theme every year – this year it’s Florentine. (As I write that, I’m thinking we must seem one-dimensional – our other tree will be gold with only purple ornaments : ) )

      Thank you for the insight Robin! Your trees don’t sound one dimensional, they sound well-thought out and I bet they will be beautiful. I hope you will share photos!!
