and so it begins...

christmas time is here! time for joy. time for family. time to decorate.....but just remember: don't go crazy.
you don't need to spend thousands. don't need to bake for every party. don't need to stress.
and for goodness sake, don't over-decorate either. if you do anything like this, you have gone too far:

white dresser

the white dresser in this picture has inspired me to find a beat up dresser at a flea market, give it some love, and glamorize it!
it would look so wonderful and i would be so proud.
i will do that someday. just not today.

things that i currently love...

best chapstick. i am obsessed. i give them as gifts too.


this tasty eclipse gum provides great breath for hours
(it's called "exotic berry" because it has cardamom in it)




this perfectly moisturizing, non-greasy vitamin E
(super cheap, found at walgreens!)

dusty rose

I'm not a very big pink fan. Only because I feel that it can be very "little-girlish."
But I love this dusty shade of pink.
It's so sophisticated.
