i CANNOT believe that christmas is only 10 days away, but then again, this happens every year. since i can remember, i've looked forward to having a home of my own to decorate for the holidays. it's a little bit tricky now, living in a small space with a roommate [read: a dormroom 🙄] but it doesn't stop me from trying my hardest to bring some seasonal cheer into my spaces, + pinning all the inspiration for the future!


love love love the soft glow from the lights mixed with the garland


cutest advent calendar disguised as a christmas village!


eucalyptus is such a great greenery alternative!


wreaths on windows are like my vice -- so so classy and beautiful!


the white garland across the tree and the greenery above the archway cannot be eat. the pups all decked out don't hurt either :)


to see more inspiration, click here for my pinterest or here for my instagram saves! although socia media can cause a multitude of problems, it will always remain one of my biggest sources of inspiration. merry 15th day of christmas + happy friday!!


tis' the season of trimmed trees, glittering lights, + snowy walks. christmas is upon us, friends! a few weekends ago we headed out on search of the perfect tree - thanks to the local ymca for bringing in the best selection! it didn't take us long to find a good one, so while the kind workers cut + wrapped our tree, we snapped a few photos!

i'm currently living in this beanie from gigi pip + hardcore wishing this was my car!

in the video you can see a little bit of our decorating process. (we did it later at night so the lighting wasn't the most ideal... :) be sure watch the film above, as well as check out last year's christmas treevideo

the holidays are approaching faster than you think, people! i feel like it was just the fourth of july, and now christmas music is on the radio! (#notcomplaining) i will admit, it is hard to get into the spirit when things are so busy. in order spread the holiday cheer to all of us, i've partnered with Thermos brand to create a little hot chocolate recipe that'll make your spirits bright in no time. (and it's dairy-free, too!)

but seriously, how cute is that coffee thermos?! it's perfect for the holidays, and the vintage pattern is too good. by clicking the link, you can enter a giveaway to win your own products. let me know if you've entered, and happy holidays! cheers!
