Hi.

Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I blog about my home, life, and travels. Hope you enjoy your stay!

Treat Yourself

Our Christmas tree is surrounded by brightly wrapped gifts for family and friends (and each other!), but somehow I can't resist sticking to ye old "One For You, One for Me" rule with my holiday shopping. Between the Black Friday sales, Cyber Monday sales and my constant love of a bargain, I've scored quite a few Christmas treats of my own that I couldn't resist sharing this season...

"Just Married" Car Ornament - West Elm

The sentimental side of me has been longing all month to buy a "first year of marriage" ornament for our tree, and I couldn't resist scooping up this shiny pink beauty to have and to hold forever! Shop here.

Pink Velvet Pumps - Sam Edelman

These pink velvet beauties were at the top of my wishlist for over a month before I finally buckled down and swiped my card. But since them, I've worn them with everything - distressed denim, metallic dresses and polka dot tights. I love fancy shoes that are actually comfortable too. Shop here.

Spoken and Heard - Elaini Garfield

One of my best friends published a book this year! It's full of prayers and poetry about beauty, pain and moments of in-between. If you're looking for a Christmas gift for a friend who is in need of spiritual encouragement or just want to enrich your own prayer life, you should definitely pick up a copy! Shop here.

Red Mega Lane Handbag - Kate Spade

You guys, I drooled over this bag. For months. Literally drooled. When it first arrived at our Kate Spade store in September, I couldn't bite the bullet because I had *just* bought a black bow handbag for my birthday. But I always watched this bag lovingly sit on the shelf and coveted it's Gucci-like fabulousness. So when it went on MAJOR sale a few weeks ago, I couldn't hold out any longer. And now this baby is all mine. Shop here.

Ombre Pink Dress - Free People

This was my party dress of choice for the Christmas season - comfortable, effortless and fabulous when worn with sheer silver tights and the aforementioned pink velvet heels. And you really can't beat that sale price! Shop here.

That's what I've been splurging on this holiday season. What about you?
