Besides the near death (no exaggeration) snowboarding trip, my holiday festivities were amazing. They included a couple of birthday celebrations, Christmas Eve parties, holiday lights, Christmas brunch, opening presents, some football, snow (and ice) and soaking in some great memories! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday as well! This year has been a whirlwind and I cant wait to ring in the new year this weekend! Here's to 2012! Have a happy and safe New Year's Eve!

My Christmas Wishlist

Christmas Wishlist

Christmas Wishlist by loux2 featuring cross body handbags

1. A Dara Ettinger druzy ring tops my list this year. I've metioned my love for them before here.
2. Urban Decay's Naked 2. I This looks even better than the first and I'm hoping to score some Sephora giftcards this year!
3. The perfect black clutch, Rebecca Minkoff would do. ;)
4. A pair of black pointed toe heels. These beauties are Gucci but let's be real people, it's a "wish" list.
5. Karen Walker sunnies. I think these are on every girls wishlist this year!
6. A classic black leather banded watch.

Yoohoo, Santa? Are you reading this? I promise I've been a very good girl!

A dose of glam...

For me, December is a month filled with a slew of birthdays (including yours truly), Christmas parties and of course, New Year's Eve. I love any excuse to dress up so when this time of year rolls around I'm always on the look out for the perfect birthday dress and a festive holiday look. This season there are so many different trends you can try without breaking the bank. Here are a few that I've got my eye on.

The not so typical LBD
Winter Whites


Sparkle with Sequins

Animal Prints
 Stand out in a sea of LBD's and rock some red

A dose of holiday giving...

December has crept up on us already and like I said before, I am determined to get my holiday shopping done early this year! So to get the giving flowing I compiled a list of affordable gift ideas for anyone on your list. Take a peak and start crossing off your list!

1.  For the bachelor/bachelorette pad,  a "home plate" welcome mat or zesty measuring spoons.
2. For the fashion forward,  a preppy tie or sparkly clutch.
3. For the gadget lover, headphones with their favorite team logo or a fashionable iPhone cover.
4. For the fitness fanatic, personalized golf balls or a flirty yoga mat sling.
5. For the partyer, sleek steel shot glasses
6. And for the do-gooder, a gift that gives back.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving weekend! Mine involved lots of food, family, friends and a lil' bit of shopping. Now I'm excited to start gearing up for Christmas! I am determined not to wait till the last minute to get my Christmas shopping done this year so Friday I'll be attending Crafeteria, hosted by Frances and Smeeks. My mom, sister and I are making it an official girls night in honor of my sister's birthday! Hopefully I'll have some pics to share next week. Make sure to check out their blog for more details about this fun event!

A dose of Bling...

I am officially obsessed with druzy rings! I first fell in love when I spotted them at Frances in Phoenix. Since then, I've been scouring online shops to find one. These are a few of my favorites I've found online. There will definitely be one on my Christmas wish list! And if I was living in la-la land it would be this one. Hello, gorgeous.

So what do you think of druzy rings?

You can find all of these beauties at Max&Chloe.

Something Wicked...

So for the last three years a group of my friends throw a Halloween party titled "Something Wicked". This year it was held at a private venue instead of a house and it was a big hit! Here are some silly snap shots the photographer took of my girlfriends and I.

*A bumble bee (minus her beekeeper), Cat in the Hat, 2 lil Indians, a Geisha and a Raccoon :)

Hope everyone had a great Halloween!

A dose of (slightly) Spooky...

I took a cue from Coco+Kelley and dreamt up my own version of a fabulous Halloween party. Like them, I'd prefer glam over gore.

I hope everyone has a safe and spooky Halloween weekend. One with more treats than tricks!
