Friday Funday - December

I can't believe it's already Friday and Christmas is in a week and a half. This is the part of the season where I start savoring every second, and cramming my schedule with baking and and Christmas music and movies and good cheer. 

I'm almost done all of my Christmas shopping which feels excellent, now I have to figure out how I'm going to fit it all into a suitcase. Luckily I have a week to avoid that particular problem and will instead browse online for last minute Christmas finds, get sucked into excellent articles, and share the best of what I find with all of you!  

1. I was browsing through the Lilly Pulitzer store looking for something for my mom and spotted their new velour pieces. I saw them a few weeks ago online and figured they'd be fine, but the velour is so soft and plush! They are the ultimately cozy piece, I'm trying to talk myself out of picking some up, but we'll see...

2. I've been looking for a notebook to write down all of my All That Glitters ideas when they pop into my head throughout the day and I really love this one. It's spiral which means that it will stay open on my desk, and I love the saying "The World was Hers for the Reading". Plus it has a pocket which is nice for the inevitable sticky notes I will accumulate. 

3. I finally finished writing our holiday cards. We got them from Minted and I highly recommend checking the site out. The cards are high quality and the envelopes come pre addressed which I love! We also used them for our wedding save the dates and thank you notes, and the quality of all the products has been superb. Plus, for Christmas cards they have a whole section for newlyweds which I love :)

4. I found this recipe for a Holiday White Russian and it looks so delicious!

5. I love this video of Carly making cake pops with her mom. I'm so excited to try and make them for the next event we go to!
