Weekly Spread: December 26th-January 1st

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! This is my first week of planning in my Recollections planner from Michael's. I must say I love it! It was only $15 when I used a 50% off coupon. The set up is very similar to an Erin Condren Vertical Planner. The only slight issue I have is with the dates at the top, but that is such an easy fix. I am thinking I can use White Out on the numbers and just use numbered stickers or use date cover stickers depending on the kit. Other than that, I am very happy I was able to find a cheaper alternative to the EC Planner. 
Since New Years Day falls on a Sunday this year, I decided to decorate the week leading up to New Years in festive colors. I picked up the kit shown from Sticker Bloom. I love the gold, black and white theme. Classic New Years colors. I also had a few extra glamour girls from a Mix and Match kit I ordered from Willow Fields. They were perfect to add that extra touch of flair to this spread. 
Have a wonderful week!

Holiday Wish List 2016

Here are a few things I would love to see under my tree on Christmas morning. I have been eager to try the new Essie Gel Polish after hearing great reviews. Snuggling with hot cocoa and a movie would be a lot more fun with a mermaid tail!
What's on your holiday wishlist?

OOTN: Holiday Party Dressing

For some, the holiday parties may have already started. Last night marked my first holiday party of the season. I ended up wearing a very festive green plaid skirt. For a dressier party I have my eye on a few sparkly pieces including this sequin dress and skirt
I created three outfits from casual to ladylike. I love a monochromatic look. The first look sports a silver blazer with a fitted sequin mini dress paired with shiny silver loafers. This ensemble is the epitome of "cool girl." While I'm not sure I could pull this look off, I might give it a try for a fun holiday party out with the girls. The second look is more my style with a gold sequin blazer, a little black cami, fitted trousers, and heels with a bow. This looks scream classy and fun. The third and final look is something I can absolutely see myself wearing . I love a good skirt. I  paired this with a sleek, flowy top and bow booties. I might even add these cute tights for a chilly night. 
I hope these outfits give you some glittery inspiration for your holiday parties this season!

Twinkle Toes

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

A big trend I have noticed for the holidays are glitter booties. I have been quite unsuccessful at finding a pair so far. I ordered two different pairs and ended up having to return them because they did not fit right or the tops were too high and unflattering. But the search continues. I would love to wear a pair of glitter booties and a black dress on New Years! Wish me luck!

Review: Revlon Kiss Balm

Have I ever mentioned how I am a sucker for lip products? When I spotted these new Revlon Kiss Balm at Walgreen's I scooped it up and checked out in one fluid motion. I bought the Tropical Coconut first to test it out. I liked that it would just add a nice sheen to my lips instead of any color. The first thing I noticed right off the bat was the incredible smell. This lip balm not only smells great but the formula is so hydrating. I feel in love with this product and naturally had to pick up a few more. I opted for a Berry Burst, a wine red, and fresh strawberry, the perfect pink. I think I may have to grab the last few colors to complete my collection. I am totally in love with this balm and I highly recommend them!

November Favorites

I am a little late with the November Favorites, but better late than never, right? This month I lived in the coziest coat, finally found the perfect pair of distressed denim and rediscovered one of my favorite perfumes.

1. Red Plaid Coat. I have a bad habit of buying a new coat each year, but I didn't feel too guilty about purchasing this one since it got it for half off! It's like wearing a blanket. It's a bit over-sized, which is perfect for laying chunky sweaters!
2. Distressed Denim. I have been wanting a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans for some time now. I just never found the right pair. I stumbled upon these on the sale rack of Old Navy for $11! They were the only pair and in my size. I'd say it was meant to be.
3. Juliette Has A Gun Perfume. This "perfume" actually is not considered a perfume because there is only one ingredient, Cetalox. It is the base note of most perfumes, but instead of adding other flavor notes, they just let it be. This smells like nothing I have ever worm before and I always receive compliments each time I wear it.

I normally like to post my weekly spreads on Mondays, but I just couldn't get it together this week. This kit was too cute not to share! Charlie Brown's Christmas is one of my favorite holiday movies and reminds me of so many wonderful childhood holiday memories! I picked this kit up from one of my favorite Etsy shops, Wild Summer Designs!
I hope everyone had a great week and has a great weekend! Back to regularly scheduled posts next week... I hope!

Music of the Month: November 2016

This week has been one of those weeks where I can't seem to get my head on straight. I have felt behind and unorganized all week! I finally slowed things down last night and laid in bed listening to music. Here are a few songs I have been listening this month.
