have a relaxing (christmas countdown) weekend!

is it me or are you also trying to juggle a million things right now?
the holidays approaching can stress you out, you know what i mean?! & pair that with working full time and trying to stay healthy, getting to bed on time, eating right, geeez. i'm trying to slooooow it down a bit and realize that a lovely break is coming soon. days of sleeping in, not eating on the fly, and actually tasting my morning coffee. can't wait!

this weekend i hope to take a winter beach walk, here, slurp a pile of pasta here (soooo good!), and begin wrapping a few presents to get a jump on it! i hope that your weekend is everything you want it to be. and it's friday, so some fun finds from around the world wide web:

a fun way to display a favorite photo (bonus: great gift idea too!)

just so gorgeous, these pumps in blush.

loving these square rings.


i just really love these rainbow bracelets.

on sale, these marbled monogram cheeseboards. a neat gift!

this do-it-yourself pillow applique is bold (very gucci-esque & i love it!).

potato yum.

oh & if you're vegetarian or vegan, she has some great recipes.

more yum...hot chocolate on a stick.

these bowls. i want one in every color palette they have.

this children's line, takes me waaaaaay back to how my mother dressed me growing up.

a stunning sconce in gold.

give the gift of a christmas tree (scent).

serious rattan love, (handmade love!)...plus supporting these artisans.

vintage love.

a new twist on the winter leather gloves

a holiday table top idea, an arrangement of these would be simple and gorgeous for having guests to dinner.

have a fun weekend!

happy weekend! are you in full christmas sprint or slow and steady wins the race mode?
i'm in the slow & steady catagory, trying to not get overwhelmed, attempting to enjoy this month in a variety of ways. i bought a christmas tree on black friday to enjoy it for much longer than i usually do. i'm looking forward to snow (coming to new england today!) and i literally live in this chenille sweater every day after work. i'm also shopping slowly. putting extra thought into more personal gift ideas. how are you embracing the hectic christmas season? i'd love to hear!

i hope that your weekend is everything that you hope it to be! and it's friday saturday, so some fun finds from around the world wide web:

my kind of christmas ornament.

oooh what i could do with this space.

this headboard is everything.

if i had a newborn.

if i had a toddler.

amazing red boots.

these are gorgeous too.

yum, tis the season.

i prefer holiday garland over wreaths, this one is simply beautiful.

etsy love: how fun would these be on a cocktail party table setting?

be your own muse.

okay, just alot of cool stuff here (great gift ideas!).

patent leather snowboots? yes please.

couture poufs. loving the fringe!

sparkly flared trousers, because why not.

another reason to love going to bangs

speaking of hair, these hair pins for a christmas party, so fun.

this mustard dress
, with this gold purse.

it's about to snow in new england, but wishing for these for next summer.

eyeing this checkered blouse.

this fluffy dolman jacket
really needs to be mine.

did you flip the switch? are you getting in the christmas spirit yet?
i have to admit i am! there is usually a larger separation between thanksgiving and christmas for me, to reeeeaaally start feeling christmasy. but for some reason this year, i want to run out and grab a tree and decorate immediately.

i buy a new ornament each year, and so while searching around, i just saw these merry polar bear ornaments, how adorable are these? oh, and this entire shop is chock full of super sweet gift ideas....like this, this & this. so if you are decorating like me this weekend, cheers!

have a happy thanksgiving!

are you travelling this holiday or hosting thanksgiving?
(image mine: burlington vermont)

i am laying low, moving slow, having a few family members & friends for thanksgiving dinner and planning on sipping wine, engaging in relaxing conversation surrounded by football sounds.

and i went off the grid a bit this year , creating classic dishes with an innovative edge, this friendsgiving post prompted me to want to get just a little bit more creative this thanksgiving... i'm making the twice baked root vegetable mash, let you know how it comes out!

hey! enjoy your day friends!
