Stocking Stuffers 2014
Novogratz Family Blanket / Dream a Little Dream Eyelash Mask / Odds & Ends Tray / Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment / Faux Pearl XL Swing Earrings / T Ring Tree / Chic Gloves / Enamel Darling Compact / Enamel Locket Ring / Mackenzie Sunglasses / Lipstick Blots Watercolor Print / Julep Nail Color Trio / Nest Holiday Candle / Topshop Lipstick / Arquiste for J.Crew Perfume Rollerball / Society Social Bottoms Up Wine Tote

Time for another Holiday Wish List post! And no better way to finish up your holiday shopping then with those little stocking stuffers to complete your holiday shopping list for all of your loved ones. I'm especially partial to the Lipstick Blots Watercolor Print from my Etsy shop. I love artwork and any excuse to give and receive artwork is a-okay with me. And I've always wanted to try that Sugar Tinted Lips Treatment in Plum for as long as I can remember, I just clearly forget to buy it for myself! But I sure wouldn't mind finding that in my stocking this year...

Happy shopping!

Christmas Table with Satsumas

satsuma-3

What a weekend! We had some of our best friends over for a Christmas dinner & sleepover this past Saturday and am still coming down from all the fun we had. Steve had made Beef Short Ribs (Ina Garten's recipe) along with creamy mashed potatoes, and a simple salad to cut through the heaviness of both dishes. And my small contribution to this meal was deviled eggs (The Pioneer Woman's recipe) as an appetizer along with some strawberries & cheese. And our lovely guests brought a variety of desserts for us to enjoy.

When we were planning this Christmas meal, I had it in my mind to have roses adorn the table in smaller vases, instead of one big arrangement. But when I was picking up the flowers at Whole Foods, I saw these gorgeous satsumas with their stems still attached and knew that it would make for a simple yet festive centerpiece. And not just a centerpiece for the dinner party, but to have on the table everyday or until we eat them all, hehe.

I'm sure a good number of you are hosting holiday parties this year, so I just wanted to share another option for a centerpiece instead of flowers. Satsumas and other wintery fruits such as pears and pomegranates are a great way to add color to the table without going the flower route. I couldn't resist the roses I found so I decided to have both flowers and fruit. Here are a few snaps of the table before we devoured our dinner.

Don't worry, I removed those tall bottle brush trees before we ate since they would've blocked our view from each while eating.

Holiday Wish List // For Him

2014 holiday wish list for him
Tivoli Audio Music System Two Wireless Bluetooth Speaker / Black Pure Shaving Brush / Cashmere Sport Check Scarf / J.Crew Cotton Poplin Pajama Set / Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean / "Whale Club" Leather and Canvas Belt / Bosca Small Bi-fold Wallet / New Wayfarer 55m Sunglasses / Blanton's Bourbon / / / Cole Haan Lenox Hill Oxfords / Dorset Crystal Old-Fashioned Glasses / Continental Duffle / Chef's Knife with Stand / Coach Basic Nappa Leather Glove / J.Crew Heathered Chamois Elbow Patch Shirt / Anker 2nd Gen Astro Mini Lipstick-sized Portable External Battery / L.L.Bean Signature Waxed-Canvas Maine Hunting Shoe

Can't forget about the man in your life, right? In fact, sometimes I think it's harder to buy gifts for the men in my life (don't get the wrong idea, I'm talking about my husband, father, and brothers) unless I get a very specific list from them. The hubby was sweet enough to send me a list of what he's hoping to get for Christmas and well, I thought it was such a great list that I had to share with you all. A few practical gifts here and there (we have that Anker 2nd Gen Astro Mini Lipstick-sized Portable External Battery and use it ALL the time), but a lot of great luxury items too that any guy would want to get this holiday season.
