Christmas Day Favorites


IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE | PJS | PREZZIES | SWEETS

First off, Merry Christmas sweet friends! Today is one of my favorite days of the year & I look forward to the family traditions that are still in place, opening prezzies in cute pj's while It's A Wonderful Life plays in the background (& I can't forget all the homemade sweets!). Over the last several years, as us kids have gotten older, things have slightly changed. Traditions have fallen & new ones have been established. N + I celebrate our four year anniversary tomorrow (wowzers!) & this year we decided to put into place traditions that we will be able to carry out as a couple/family one day. I have a hard time with change, but in retrospect it is fun to create new traditions, especially with N! 

On another note, I am beyond blessed to have each + every one of you in my life. You inspire me daily to stick with this little ol' blog of mine & I want to thank-you! I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas & hope that you will be spending this wonderful Holiday with friends + family. xoxo

Christmas Wish List


Happy 1 week until Christmas Eve! EEK - I am soooo excited. This year has been very different then the past because I have yet to put together a Christmas list for my parents or my boyfriend. I also, didn't feel it was necessary to put together a bajillion & one gift guides because there are enough of those in blogland to go around for the next 365 days, but that is besides the point. Today, Four Favorites is all about the Christmas Wishlist & finally I get to share a few items with you all (& N - since I already emailed him blog post!). 

+ I am dying to complete my office & this White Faux Taxidermy Large Moose Mount has been on my wish list since I can remember (so hopefully I score one for Christmas!).

+ Estee Lauder has out done themselves with their amazing new perfume, Modern Muse, not only with the amazing smell, but also the design of the bottle. I have been living off samples that I have scored from Macy's + Nordstrom's (sorry!).

+ The J. Crew Etta Pump in Chocolate Leopard is a NEED (not a want). I finally tried these on the other day & I am smitten I tell you. (& they are 30% off with the code GIFTNOW)

+ I recently signed up to do the Rock & Roll Half Marathon in March & I am super stoked about it. It will be almost 3 years to the day that I ran my last Marathon & I just started training with me neighbor. I have had my eye on the Fit Bit Flex Wireless Band for some time, but now that I am starting to train it has moved on up on this wishlist.

Merry Berry Christmas, Sugar!


One of my favorite things about the Holidays ar the Holiday Drinks. I absolutely love sipping on something taste-y while mingling with friends or watching my favorite Christmas movie (like Home Alone or The Holiday!). Sipping on something simple + sweet is always a good idea. Tiziano Wine sent me a bottle of Prosecco & I wanted to create a fun + simple Holiday drink that I could share with you all. I came across this recipe (sans alcohol) & decided to mix it up a bit. I kept all the main ingredients the same, but substituted the water for Prosecco & cut back on the agave nectar. This simple Holiday drink turned out fabulous & it is def. going to be making another appearance this Holiday season. Let me know what you think, if you end up giving this Merry Berry Christmas, Sugar drink a whirl! xo
