Drowning our sorrows in the lodge

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.

Winter Whites


Sparkle with Sequins

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.
