Holiday Cheer

There’s been a lot going on at our apartment to prepare for Christmas including decorating the tree, shopping, wrapping, baking, and making a few gifts. Here’s a wreath I made using this link. It was a little harder than I thought it would be, but I think it was worth it.

I also gave myself a holiday manicure yesterday to prepare for Christmas using red nail polish and gold glitter nail polish.

e.l.f: red velvet and sephora by OPI: only gold for me

First, apply either one or two coats of red nail polish

Then, add the gold glitter top coat
The last step is to spray some pam on your nails which prevents smudging.

What have you been doing to prepare for the holidays?

It’s Time to Celebrate

Lately I’ve been very addicted to Pinterest. It’s so easy to browse all of the pictures for hours without realizing how much time has passed. While on Pinterest I found all of these great outfit ideas for Christmas dinner from casual to dressy looks.






What will you be wearing while you celebrate the holidays?

Christmas at the Biltmore

Last week my husband and I took a trip to Asheville to visit the Biltmore and the Grove Park Inn. This trip definitely put me in the Christmas spirit and we finally got to experience some cold weather. Seeing the Biltmore house at night with all 55 of its Christmas trees was so beautiful and is something I recommend doing.

The Trend: Faux Fur Vests

I’ve come to love faux fur vests, however it adds so much extra bulk that it isn’t flattering. The reality is the latest trend doesn’t always look great on everyone, instead try to adapt it to best suit your body type. I found this vest at Gap recently (only $18!!) that has some fur-like detail on the collar instead of the entire vest. Pictures to come.
