Holiday Spirit

I haven't posted many holiday related posts this year. I'm going to accredit this to the rush of the holidays. I haven't had much time to paint my nails, compile a wishlist, or even just take pictures. But I have been having a blast in Florida this week and even though the weather is warm, I am still feeling the holiday spirit.

To see what I am up to daily, check out my Instagram.

Jewelmint | Chaillot Necklace & Blanc Tassel Pendant

I decided I needed to update my jewelry collection with a couple of new winter pieces. A lot of my statement necklaces and longer pendants are more spring/summer in pastel and summery shades. I love Jewelmint as all their pieces are on trend, nice quality, and affordable. I decided to order the Chaillot Necklace and the Blanc Tassel Pendant.

Sephora Haul

Don't you just love Sephora during the holidays? The gift sets, the minis, the $15 dollar rewards card... I admit I felt like I was missing out when the November sale came about being a mere BI, so I was pretty excited to get the reward email. Last year, I forwarded the email to my mom, so she could get me the Naked 3 palette at a discount (I promise I wasn't forcing her to buy me presents-I knew she was going to get it for me, so I thought I'd save her some money.) This year I decided to pick up another lust-worthy palette and some basics that I needed to stock up on.

Travel Essentials | 10 Day Packing Guide Printable

I have a few posts here & there related to travel. With an upcoming holiday vacation approaching (which I am sure many of you are in the same boat!), I thought I would compile them all here as well as share my 10 Day Packing Guide. I am super excited about posting my first printable! I love little checklists, so I hope you love this one!

PopSugar Must Have | December 2014

What can I say-if there is a scarf spoiler (& a great promo) I will order it. The last PopSugar box I got was in September because, of course, it had a scarf. This month came with products perfect for the holiday season. I am really happy with the mix.

Birchbox | December 2014

Isn't the box beautiful? I am thinking of what I can store in this one & the BB Man version (I am always stealing Preston's box). I love the gold foil details and cobalt colour. The theme is 'Decked Out' which I can relate to as I am in a very festive mood.

Favourites | November Beauty

Last week was a whirlwind, so last month's favs is a bit delayed. A few new things mixed with some definite repeats-hey, they are favourites for a reason.

On Blogging...

Several months ago, I saw quite a few posts from other bloggers regarding the state of the blogging world/community, so to speak. To sum it up, they were discussing the change of blogging as a hobby to blogging as a profession. Over the last couple of years, blogging has actually turned into a viable profession. For many of these “professional” bloggers, what started as an outlet, a hobby, turned into a full-time job. To do this though, you have to delve into the PR, ads, and sponsored post world, and many felt it could be a difficult balance. It seems now that many people are starting blogs in hopes of it turning into a profitable career. I wanted to give my take on it as a fairly new blogger.

Tatcha Holiday Collection | Kinhaku & Miyabi

Pretty boxes. Full of pretty things. I can't get over how gorgeous the limited edition Tatcha Holiday Gift sets are. There are nine sets, so you can definitely find the perfect gift for the skincare obsessive in your life. I have the Kinhaku and the Miyabi sets to show you.* Warning: The words gorgeous and luxurious are going to be thrown around quite a bit...

Countdown to Christmas | David's Tea 24 Days of Tea

Well, hello December! I can't believe it's already time to open up door number one. I actually almost forgot. I am always very excited for the holidays. I love shopping for the perfect gift for someone (see my Gift Guide here), and I love taking the time to slow down and enjoy the company of friends & family. I had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend with my sister and little brothers exploring NYC and am now counting down the days 'til I head to Florida for a Christmas vacation.
