Helloooo everyone! I hope you are having a great week so far -- and I'm sure you are because it's a short week. I just love Thanksgiving. And I still call it Thanksgiving break like I'm in college or something. I don't know about you, but this is a half week for me with the Holidays. So I'm pretty happy to be heading to see family and friends. Speaking of the holiday....

Everyone collectively squeal with me in welcoming the Holidays! EEK! YAY! You guys know I can't get enough of the festivity and decorating that comes along with holiday celebrations. Whether it Valentines Day or Christmas, I love decorating! Growing up I remember my mother always festively decking our home (no matter the holiday) so I think this runs in my blood. Regardless, I cannot get enough of Christmas especially, so get excited for the holiday content on here! While you wait, check out last year's and the year before.
Today I wanted to round up some of the creative ideas I've found around the web this year. I'm inspired by all of these!
Chalkboard presents! How cute are these? Get creative and wrap up something fun. Here's a tutorial.
Holiday Checklist. You need it, trust me. Thanks to Glitter Guide, you'll be a holiday pro this year.
Use vintage ornaments. Check out your local vintage store for Christmas decor! I love the idea of something unique and vintage. Be different than everyone else!
Paint your tree! Bored with your Christmas tree? No problem. Try sprucing it up by painting it! White is always a great choice, but I'm sure people have been more creative with it using more wild colors. Here's a great tutorial for you!
Get creative with your mantle using chalkboards, garlands and wreaths. Or simply find/make a gold framed chalkboard, write your choice of Christmas saying and lean against the wall above garland. I really love how personal this feels! It's all about finding creative twists to holiday styling. I always want to challenge myself each year to create something creative.
Throw a 'Cup of Cheer' get together. A 'Cup of Cheer' holiday gathering can include anything from a hot chocolate bar and cookie making station to an adult beverage (spiked eggnog anyone?) bar and dance party! It's easier to throw together than you think. And if you already own a bar cart, even better. Decorate your cart for Christmas and invite a few friends over for themed drinks and cookies. Eat, drink and be merry.

TGIF! We made it to Friday! I'm really excited because Chandler comes to LA today and we are going to explore this city like we never have before. When we explore I have to be comfortable, so flats are a must. I've been on a major sneakers kick these days and this is definitely a typical outfit I would wear on an exploration day around the city. Complete with my favorite faux fur vest you've been asking about!

Oh, the Holiday season. I have always loved this time of year. Heck, my Mom and I have been known to blast Christmas music in July! Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is next week! Where the time goes, I have no idea. What I do know is what I'll be wearing. Naturally. What are you wearing this year? I'll share a few of my ideas + a bit about what we are planning to do this year.
