Happy 1st week of BLOGMAS and of December! I am completely shocked that this is the last month of 2018. S.h.o.c.k.e.d. Luckily, December is panning out to be really fun & festive and I’m so looking forward to recapping some of the memories right here each week.

For the first post, I just wanted to unload the camera roll from the past few weeks! Take a peek…

Cozy nights & cocktails by the fire!Target has the cutest  selection of $5 mugs. I love all of the cozy sweater sleeves!

Speaking of sweaters, I stocked UP! Stay tuned for a bunch of comfy finds coming to the blog soon, but in the meantime you can shop this one here!

Thanksgiving at my Aunt Annettes was delicious per usual!Spent Thanksgiving weekend decorating my parents house for Christmas and making Thanksgiving dinner pt. 2 (because there’s no such thing as too many leftovers)! 🙂 

Celebrated National Take a Hike Day by hiking (obviously) up Meeker Trail in New Preston, CT

…with this cute guy! 🙂 (Excuse my flying saucer bun. It was actually a hard hike, I had to USE that stick lol)Paisano flows 24/7 for this fam…And sometimes the Paisano will convince you to give your cousin the go-ahead to dye your roots at 10:00pm!

And sometimes one more glass of Paisano & you give her the go-ahead to you bring your entire head back to the dark side! Missed being a brunette. 🙂Current read. LOVING it so far!Supported my friend Jess at her art show in Greenwich last week!Alice + Olivia recently collaborated with Keith Haring to create a really fun collection. They debuted some of the pieces at the show.Living in this sherpa from Shop Luxy until Spring!Winter White mani’s are my favorite (Gelish “Sheek White”)! I’m hoping my nails will grow a bit over the next couple of weeks so I can try a dip powder mani before Christmas. Hearing too many good things about them lately. 🙂

Lunch date with a bestie over the weekend!

Kristin (left) is an APRN who recently started Liquid Aesthetics, a new Med Spa business! She just opened a BEAUTIFUL office in Glastonbury. They do it ALL over there… botox, fillers, laser, micro-needling, etc…& they’re just awesome people. Check her out on IG!

A little something to think about…

And a little something to laugh about…


That’s about it! The next few weeks are packed with holiday-fun, cool events, and a few other exciting things in the mix. Stay tuned! 🙂

I mentioned that I wanted to host a giveaway in EVERY Blogmas post, and what’s more appropriate for a first giveaway than…a few of my favorite things.

I’m going to send one of you guys (in a brown paper package wrapped up with string 😉 ) the Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara (aka the best mascara of all time), the Wet N Wild Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner which I promise you will not budge, the Sally Hansen Vitamin E cuticle oil (my-go to), a bottle of the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polish in Dig Fig  (the perfect holiday red), and a can of the Batiste dry shampoo because this time of year things get crazy, we have a million places to go… & we can’t be styling our hair every single day! 😉 That stuff is a life saver.

To enter, just submit your name & e-mail address below!

Winner will be selected at random on Sunday & announced in next weeks Blogmas post!
