Pink and Preppy Gifts... On a College Girl's Budget

By now you all probably know how much I love Christmas time, so its probably no surprise I love surprising all my friends with christmas gifts, and in my group that could start to add up. So this year I came up with a super cute way to give anyone something personal, all for under $4 a person, and I got a craft project too!
This year all my friends will be getting initialed ornaments made by me! Its something that is personal and different for everyone, but is simple enough that it won't interfere with a busy schedule, I already have them all painted, tied with a super cute ribbon, wrapped and ready to go! Like I said its on a college girl's budget. I like to give everyone a little something so it can never be something to big. But I did it, all for under $4 a person, including wrapping! Its super cute project.
Also It's Mia's First Christmas, isn't she cute!!

Who doesn't Love a Christmas Card?

Like I've said I love this time of year, Christmas cards are one of my favorite parts. My sister and I still battle to open every card in the mailbox. Letters and card feel like they're becoming what feels like a lost art. I actually prefer mail and letters to email. Don't get me wrong I long the internet and Blogging of course, but there's nothing like getting a letter in the mail. I love places like Levenger, Papyrus, Crane, The Paper Source and Kate's Paperie. I just can't get enough of nice pens, cute cards and monogramed stationary. So pick up a pen, a nice card and send someone your best holiday wished!

They're finally here!

I finally got the pair of new riding boots I ordered what feels like forever ago. I ended up with a pair of Ciao Bella boots. It was quite a process to get these boots, I originally ordered them from Piperlime, and eventually reordered them from DSW. I won't go into details but after some damaged purchases and numbers communications with customer service, I may not be ordering from them for a while. I love these boots, I think they are my new favorite staple item. I also got some jeggings from American Eagle, which are amazingly comfortable. I was always against just wearing leggings and a shirt, its like you're wearing no pants, but I've been converted these are one of the most comfortable things I have ever put on. Everyone should have a pair of boots like these they always look so nice and put together.
Until next time
Happy Bogging

Holiday Season

We are officially starting holiday season. With only 15 day until Thanksgiving break, at least for me, its time to start picking out those cute outfits for all your holiday parties. I think I've found it, that one dress that is super cute, preppy and perfect for every party I have to go to!
Charlie Dress
I got this super cute dress from Vineyard Vines and I absolutely love it. I love the colors, that generally look good on everyone, and are great for the holiday season. I'm planning on wearing this to all my holiday parties this year!
Until next time, Happy blogging !!

Christmas Cups!

Its official! Starbucks now has their christmas/holiday cups out, I heard them playing christmas music and stores have christmas trees out, it is officially holiday season!
What does this mean? It means I'm breaking out the hot chocolate, gingerbread men, winter oreos, christmas movies and music! It might be too early for a tree, but we're almost there! I love old movies and the classic christmas one are my favorite. I love Its A Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, White Christmas, and a few more modern classics like Elf or A Muppet Christmas Carol.
For most people its too early for a tree, but that hasn't stopped by from buying ornaments yet! I already bought a few of these santa ornaments for myself and my friends, and I may have bought an ornament that looks like a pair of Christian Louboutin peep toes, how can a shoe lover resist!
I can't wait for the holiday season to fully kick in, with caroling, christmas tree lighting on the Boston Commons, Christmas movies at the Brattle theater in Harvard square. I love this time of year, is all focused on happiness and christmas cheer, family & friends, lights, and everyone is always in a better mood! I wish it could last forever, just after christmas is never as much fun.
Maybe a tree could be acceptable this early if I put turkeys on it? I'm going to try and see how that goes over with my roommate. Until next time Happy Blogging and holiday season!
