Weekly Favorites (and an Instagram Roundup) | 12.18.15.


I'm baaaaaack! The past two weeks have been a nice hiatus and a chance to unplug a bit. I feel like the holiday season is always super busy. Between Thanksgiving, friends visiting, a trip to LA, and other busy weekends I've been constantly on the move. However, this past weekend gave me a chance to finally catch up on all of the things I've been pushing to the side of my to-do list.

To be frank, I am totally not in the holiday spirit this year. I have a feeling this is due to the fact that it was 70 degrees out last weekend and we didn't get a Christmas tree in our apartment. With even looking at the recap below, I'm like - oh, this is September right? Wrong. I've been trying to make up for the lack of Feliz Navidad-ness by consuming all of the peppermint hot chocolate and marshmellows lately. Some people are basic for pumpkin. Me? Peppermint is my life.

Off topic now - I blame it on the champagne - I'm super excited to get back into the swing of things and get some content out the door and onto these blank pages. I've invested in SO many great things these past few weeks and are so excited to see what Father Christmas brings! Annnnndddddd I've been watching too many British vlogs...



 Fresh lemonade from Joan's - so good!

 Eyeliner | Lipstick | Jacket - sold out but here in blue!



 The BEST Oyster brunch from Grillfish. Be sure to get the crab cake Benedict! | Sunglasses - old, similar | Phone Case

 A Christmas bar in DC (try the "Francisco, that's fun to say!")


Here are some other things I've been loving lately...
  • I missed a great opportunity to put this mini speaker on my wishlist. The marble casing is just gorgeous!
  • A leopard fur coat is on my wishlist and this one is under $90!
  • This party makeup tutorial seems so simple and gorgeous - perfect for the holidays
Hope you all have had a great weekend! Now, let the countdown to Christmas begin...
