Remember last week when I said I was feeling a little “holiday dread”? Well, I don’t know exactly what happened but I am SO excited now for the holidays. Thanksgiving, Christmas. All the decorations, all the traditions! My sister helped me shoot a big campaign and I was hemming and hawing over whether or not it would be worth it to bring up a Christmas tree out of storage. Well I did and I’m so glad because it got us into the spirit immediately. We played some favorite Christmas songs from our childhood and everything. Watching Jack get excited about the tree lights is what really sealed the deal for me! I even ordered my first Christmas gifts of the season (these personalized hair brushes and glitter headbands for our nieces). I swear I’m usually a grinch, but this year I’m feeling like straight up Mrs. Claus.
Here’s what’s been on my radar this week:
ONE // Doen’s Holiday Collection
Wow, wow, wow!!!! Doen’s new holiday collection is something straight out of my dreams. I have talked about Doen a lot this year, but it has quickly become a favorite brand of mine. The attention to detail and quality is fantastic and I love how the dresses look on women’s bodies. This red dress is a stunner and the matching dress for girls could not be more precious.
TWO // Mean Girls Trailer
The trailer for the new Mean Girls just dropped and I can’t wait. Talk about an all-star cast. I also saw Renee Rapp in NJ while she was filming the movie so I am extra excited about it! I assumed it was for a streamer but it’s actually going to be in theaters. Would love to do a girls’ night to go see it.
THREE // Bow Back Wedding Gown
Anyone getting married anytime soon? I’m ready for a vow renewal just so I could have an excuse to wear this gorgeous wedding gown. The silhouette is striking and the bows steal the show.
FOUR // Mini Croque Monsieur Bites
These little croque monsieur bites look delicious. I’m a big fan of croque monsieur and it looks even better in miniature. We don’t have any party hosting coming up, but if we did I would 100% be putting these on the menu.
FIVE // Lined Santa Notepad
If you’re anything like me, your to-do list game during the holiday season is next level. These Santa notepads are so festive and fun– I love that they have the little check boxes on the side so you can make your list and check it twice 😉 Rifle Paper Co gave me a code!
