I wanted to do something different for Christmas as opening presents under the tree were not as eventful as they once were so I planned a family trip to the movie theater instead. Or, rather Into The Woods! Don’t worry – no spoilers! It was a perfect movie for the day. It had just enough mystical, wonder and quite a few laughs to keep us entertained, and I loved it more because I got to hang out with the fam. Since the weather was a little warm, it was still a bit nippy, I thought that it was a good idea to pull out my knits. I took out my knit arm denim jacket, paired it with the wine colored pieces, which has been my favorite color this season. I just love it!
Ah, yes, the holiday season is upon us and if you are like any other blogger out in the ‘blogosphere’, you have prepared or are preparing your holiday list. Though, my blog list might get lost amid the many, I hope those of you who do view enjoy this list. These past few months I have been feeling really blessed so I really want to share the joy with those close to me…(love you mom, dad, fam) and some friends. And, so, this list is inspired by them and the spirit of the holiday season–Giving!
Everyone likes to give in their own way so this list is comprise of ideas for D-I-Y lovers, Fashionistas, Bargain-Shoppers, Philanthropists / Humanitarian, and many more.
We finally had our sister day for the month. We have been neglecting this day, but hopefully this puts us back on track. So, you might have noticed something different – yes, I have braids and no they are not extensions. It was done with just my hair and by me. It took me 4-6 hours to do. I say it was 4 hours without interruptions and 6 hours due to interruptions, including snack and meal breaks. I’m keeping these bad boys in for a while, but I will definitely mix it up. It was a bit chilly the last couple of days, including this day that my sister and I went out, but I did not want to let the weather cramp my style so I had fun with it.
On a side note, I finally had the chance to try out Julep Maven’s nail polish – “Erin” to be more specific, and I love it. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably already seen it but the results of the nail polish is in my outfit collage below. I wanted to mix it up so I added a crackle / shatter nail polish, ‘Blue Star’ by Mattese Elite.
Outfit of The Day:
