Christmas is (almost) Here!!!!!

 HERE we go again. I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas! Remember last time how I felt like I had too much on my plate? Well, I slowly get things done around the house before Christmas. I’ve been cooking Homemade almond Roca and wrapping presents all day yesterday. I’m slowly adding some Christmas to my kitchen! I love walking into the kitchen first thing in the morning and being greeted by holiday cheer! Still much to be done though. Holidays are kind of my thing; excuse my excitement. The time has flown by this year incredibly fast. 

I also start making list of organizing projects to be done in January. I spread the organizing out so it doesn’t overwhelm me. Inevitably after the Christmas rush, my pantry, my fun room and most of my cabinets need an overhaul. But since I’m easily overwhelmed I find that jotting down certain projects on a certain days feels easy. Or at least easier!

Madira Wine is not really my color, but hey, sometimes we gotta try something new right? I saw this Lord and Taylor long-sleeve sequin sweater online, and I fell in love with it. I knew I found a great holiday sweater. This sweater is soft, intricate, and delicate all at the same time. The color is perfect for fall, and btw Lord and Taylor released the sweater in silver, blue, pink, black if those are your taste. The sweater is not thick enough, but with a simple coat, I’m warm enough for the fall/winter! These Ted Baker shoes are gorgeous! Perfect for a weekend out and just very nice and good quality. Gotta love Ted Baker. They’re perfect and actually crazy comfy when it comes to conquering the town! Marilyn Monroe even said, ” Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world”. 

Once again thank you for your time and have a fabulous weekend!

17The phrase” Holiday Season” always conjures up warm fuzzy feelings and it’s for different reasons in each person. For the young ones, it’s the impending promise of presents that proves to be the most exciting. For the other’s it’s the food. For me it’s about FAMILY and friends. And oh, btw, I’m happy that we got at least one good shot on our Family Christmas pictures! Its’ so hard to get a perfect family photo. But still, I”ll take this one.

    Greetings from Singapore! You look absolutely gorgeous Len! That light shade of pink tutu is something I could never personally pull off! And then somehow it still works with the darker red shade of sweater. I think this goes to show mixing-colors of the same shade can be a good things… can’t be too matchy-matchy. Have a wonderful weekend sweetheart!

    So gorgeous and glam– I looove it! I’ve been trying to move a little out of my comfort zone too lately and it’s amazing the compliments you get when you try something new! But I think Madira wine is your color, too. You’re a kind of girl that looks great in any colors. Stay pretty and fab! Love your family photo! Perfect family!

    I together with my guys were actually reviewing the nice pointers from the website then the sudden came up with an awful suspicion I never expressed respect to you for those tips. All the young men came totally warmed to see them and have in effect absolutely been taking pleasure in those things. Appreciate your being well kind and also for picking varieties of good resources millions of individuals are really desperate to learn about. My very own sincere regret for not expressing appreciation to earlier.
