What I got for Christmas

Happy Belated New Year! I hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season! I haven’t had much time to blog since Christmas, which was super busy at our home! We host Dessert on Christmas Eve, brunch on Christmas Morning, and dinner on Christmas Day. On top of all the holiday preparation I came down with a little bug the week before Christmas and was down for three days! Thankfully it all came together and I actually felt more organized and prepared than any past Christmases.

I got spoiled with so many amazing gifts that I thought I would share them with you just in case you may have some gift cards or cash you are wanting to spend and looking for ideas. The sales are also amazing so what better time than now to stock up on some essentials!

My friends and family know that I love sweaters and they did well picking them out. Pair them with boots or booties and I am a happy camper!

Love this long sweater to wear with leggings and boots, super cozy!

This cardigan is great to wear with jeans or dress up with slacks for work, and I love the neutral colors. Great for the time capsule wardrobe I am trying to create, but more on that later…

This poncho is a perfect layering piece to mix with so many different tops, leggings, slacks or jeans.

I love anything Lulu lemon and these scarfs are so soft, cozy and versatile. Watch their video showing all the different ways to wear them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfBwBlrpb0U

I have been wanting grey booties and my BFF is a good listener. These are perfect with the low heel and love the cut out detail on the sides. Also on my wish list were these Adidas Gazelle sneakers, perfect with jeans for running errands and long shopping days. A great neutral color which seems to be the theme this year.

I wanted to make sure and protect both pairs so I just ordered this protectant from Amazon. It had really good reviews so I’m excited to test it out. I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes!

DKNY Cashmere Mist is my go to frangrance and my boys got me this great gift set which should hold me till next Christmas . It is a light clean floral scent, the notes include Moroccan jasmine, Lily of the Valley, bergamotte, and warm undertones of sandalwood, amber and musk.

L’Occitane Almond Oil is a favorite body wash. Not only does it smell amazing but your skin will love you too!

Once I opened and saw the Kendra Scott bag I knew I would love whatever was inside. I have been wearing my new Elaina bracelet almost everyday, absolutely love it! It comes in other colors and metal combinations if this one isn’t really your style.

I hinted to my husband about this Miranda Frye Stephanie necklace and he listened.  And wanting one of her delicate layering necklaces and this one is just perfect. I can adjust it to 15” or 16” length. It also comes in silver.

I needed a new computer cover and phone case and can’t get enough of all the marble with a little pop of pinks.

Don’t you just love gift cards! I always shop the day after Christmas so these came in handy. I will be posting my day-after-Christmas shopping day haul soon!

After such a busy season it was perfect to relax with a latte in my new Babe Cave” mug along with my favorite See’s candy California Brittle.

Cheers to 2018!!
