Makin’ A List…


Ugggghhhhh. You guys. Christmas is in 6 days. SIX. DAYS.

I know. I’m not ready either. Is it just me or does December seem like the shortest month of the year?!? I am beyond overwhelmed. Between shopping, wrapping, packing ( my nemesis ) among the million and one other things I have to accomplish in the next few days I’m feeling a little bit crazed!

SO what’s a girl stress ball to do? Do as Santa does… make a list and check it twice. I am ALL ABOUT LISTS! I have the attention span of an ant, so if something is not written down, it gets totally lost in the shuffle. Seriously. Eat✓ Sleep✓ Breathe✓ . If I don’t write EVERYTHING down, I will forget to do it. Every night before bed I make a To-DO list for the following day. There is seriously no better feeling than marking things off one by one and watching your list dwindle down to zero!


 [ Thank God for the ” Reminders ” app!!! Right?!? ]

There are currently 23 items on today’s list alone. 22 once this post is done LOL. That being said… I’m off to the gym to burn off some of this holiday stress ( which BTW will bring my list down to 21 )! Yippee.

So… what are your tips and tricks to cope with this season’s sressors?!?


Bite Worthy


Christmas-time is in the air! You know what that means… you guessed it. The *NSYNC christmas album circa ’98 will be playing on repeat from now until New Years Day. Totally not kidding BTW, but actually I was thinking more along the lines of SHOPPING SEASON… it’s officially begun. Forget about battling crowds and freezing my a** off on Black Friday. Sounds like an anxiety attack waiting to happen, no thx! I prefer to do my shopping from my fav place in the world… my couch. Cuddling up with my pup, a hot cup of tea, my laptop, and a tacky Lifetime Christmas movie sounds like a wayyyyy better way to spend the day :) Yes, ’tis the season to give, but hey, you’ve also gotta treat yourself every now &then day. Here’s what’s been fueling my Black Friday shopping addiction.

+ [ FXXI ] Be Seen Shag Jacket $65: YOU GUYS! This jacket… fur-get about it… its MINE!

+ [ Urban Outfitters ] Obey x UO Pearse Beanie $29: Beanies are my go-to for winter. The more I wear beanies, the less I have to actually brush my hair ;)

+ [ Chanel ] Le Vernis Limited Edition Nail Colour in Rouge Moiré $27: I think I need this polish to go with my cranberry lippy… right?!

+ [ FXXI ] Modernist Asymmetrical Dress $22.80: Dead. Dying. Done over this dress. Sexy, yet classy for all those upcoming holiday parties… + it’s my fav color. lol. It’s kind of unbelievable in blue too, do I dare?

+ [ ASOS ] Quilt Cross Body Bag with Cat Ears $32: This quilted cat purse is too freaking cute! It will go puuurrrrfectly with my new boots. Need it right meow.

+ [ Nasty Gal ] Just Female Addi Bracelet Set $40: Love this stackable arm candy. Dainty with an edge.

+ [ Nasty Gal ] Shoe Cult Saumur Quilted Chelsea Bootie $120 on sale for $38: I need another pair of black booties like I need a hole in the head… but I can’t resist these quilted lovers.

+ [ Urban Outfitters ] “As If” Fingerless Gloves $16: Anything that keeps my mitts warm  and allows me to type simultaneously def makes my wish list. Added bonus… they remind me of my fav 90’s movie. “Do you prefer fashion victim or ensembly challenged?”

So spill, what were your most bite-worthy finds of the week?!


All good things must come to an end…

Ahhhhhhhhh… Christmas is my absolute FAVORITE day of the year… so it only makes sense that the day after is always a little tough for me. The holiday season is so magical and there is nothing better than having the whole family together! I remain in a state of denial until about mid January when I finally shut off the Christmas tunes and begin my countdown to the following Christmas [[no joke… I have the Christmas countdown app on my phone]] On a brighter note… Santa was VERY good to me this year! Clothes… jewels… and gift cards to fund my shopping addiction for the next month week or so… Frida got some pretty bitchin’ outfits too {hello… can you say teeny tiny Burberry coat?!? She will be keeping warm in style this winter} The gift I am most excited about is my new camera… the Sony NEX 5R! It is beyond amazing and I have shot 100+ pics in the past 24 hours. It is super hands on and techie which is perfect for me and my idle hands. Be prepared… lots of pics to come! What did Santa bring you this year??
