Weekend Wrap Up

This weekend we're going to go get our tree. I find the Holidays exhausting, so I'll try to keep my Grinchy whining to a minimum here...

Also, it's our first Christmas with a dog! Hoping the ornaments aren't too tempting for Cosmo. Although I have to admit it's fun to add him to the gift list - I couldn't resist this cute little chew toy for him!

Other fun finds this week include:

-This autumn salad is amazing! (made it twice already)

-Re-stocking my fuzzy sock drawer. (#lifeinthefastlane)

Style Stalking: Emily C. Butler

I'm a little shopped out, have eaten waay too many sugary carbs and it's only December 1st! I don't know about you...but I could use a little palette cleanse right about now. Enter the refreshingly simple and chic interiors of Emily C. Butler. A New York City based interior designer that I first "met" over on Instagram.

I adore each and every fabric and print Emily uses in her spaces. Never over done...always just right! Happy December!


Holiday Gift Guide: The Best Gifts For Teen GIrls

1  //  //  //  4  //  5  //  6  //  7  //  8  //  9  //  10

Between my own two daughters and two nieces to shop for, teen girls make up a large part of my gift list. This is fine with me, because these gift guides are my favorite ones to create and my favorite gifts to give! I get to channel my inner sixteen year old self and dream up these fun ideas. (Cause, like, whatever, gifts like these are totally dope...the goat)

PS: More than half these gifts are under $50! (savage;)

PPS: My fourteen year old daughter just told me about this cool spray on nail polish by Milk!

Home Tour: Fresh and Elegant Holiday Decor

Getting my house all decked out for the Holidays is one area that I always struggle with. So far, I've managed to order our Holiday cards and make a serious dent in our gift list.  This weekend,  we have plans to go buy our tree. Every year I hang up stockings on the mantle and decorate with the holiday cards we receive through out the season. I always pull out the sweet little Menorah my daughter made in pre-school. And, we have a small nutcracker collection on display as well. And that's it. I'm sure my kids would love it if I pulled out all the stops, but I find the whole process pretty daunting.

Which is why I'm so blown away when I see a chic house (like this one) dressed up so stylishly for the holidays! Spotted over at Style at Home and belonging to blogger Monika Hibbs- I'm tempted to try to deck the halls with a little more effort this year.
