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!!


Cozy Christmas Gifts for Her

*This post contains affiliate links.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And I am sure you are looking for some Cozy Christmas Gifts for Her. I absolutely love Christmas and everything that goes with it including all of the shopping. I really try and put a lot of thought into the gifts I purchase and pay attention to little clues throughout the year. If I hear someone say something that they like or need I will make note of it. It really helps when you start making your gift list to have a head start. I have put together a list of some of my favorite cozy items that I am sure someone on your list will enjoy. So here are some Cozy Christmas Gifts for Her. You could bundle a few together for a cozy theme gift or any one of these alone would be perfect as well.  

Cozy Christmas Gifts for Her

    1. L’occitane Milk Concentrate-I received this as a gift and immediately became my favorite body cream. It is so creamy and I can’t get enough of the scent. Light, fresh and clean and your skin will love you too!
    2. L’occitane Almond Shower oil– I received the Almond Shower Oil along with the cream as a gift and the shower oil is so softening and it works into a gentle lather. Again the scent is amazing! You can buy this as a set with the Milk concentrate or individually.
    3. Blanket Scarf– It is the perfect time of year for a cozy blanket scarf. I love the colors of this one and it isn’t too heavy, comes in many other colors. Perfect with a sweater, jeans, and boots my personal favorite.
    4. See’s Candy- Who doesn’t love to cozy up with a box of yummy chocolates a cup of tea and watch a Christmas movie? My personal favorite is the California Brittle! A perfect add on to the cozy theme or perfect for your postal carrier, housekeeper, gardener etc.
    5. Barefoot Dreams Blanket-I has a barefoot dreams robe and cardigan which I have had for years and they are so soft and cozy! The robe was one of Oprah’s favorite things years ago. This blanket is on my wish list and gotta love it with the leopard print but is available in other colors as well.
    6. Ugg Slippers-I have had these Ugg slippers for I don’t know how many years now? I get a new pair every couple of years because I wear them every day. Since I got my first pair I cannot walk around the house without them. All-time best slippers!
    7. Nest Holiday Candle and Reed set-I received this as a gift last year and if you have never had a Nest candle you need to treat yourself. They are the best candles and the Holiday scent is perfect. I also have the Amber which is a lovely year-round scent.  I love the reeds and oil also which came with this set but you can buy separately. The glass the candle comes in is really pretty. So once the candle is burnt you can reuse the glass as a container.
