Favorite Holiday Home and Fashion Trinkets!

16 Nov

Since I will be out of town the week of Thanksgiving, I won’t be at home getting into the holiday cheer.  This is fine by me but since Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, I thought I’d bust out some of my holiday favorites sooner than later.

Red candles!  I’ve replaced my orange and yellow candles now with deep reds for the holidays.

A new green jewelry stand from Forever 21!

It’s perfect for all my different jewelry and I love the matted turquoise!

Red lipstick.  I love red and dark orange hued lipstick.  This one is a Revlon (#018 “Fire”) that I love.  Oh and I also love warm beanies, another plus of winter.

Chunky jewelry!  I love this new Forever 21 necklace (worn above).  I love the dark green beads and gold feathers.

And last but not least… fun nail polish!  Here’s three of my favorites.
(Turquoise – Nordstrom’s $5, Sparkle – Walgreen’s $0.99!, OPI – Beauty Source – on sale for $1.99)  Nail polish is a fun and inexpensive way to add color and/or sparkle to anything.  I love layering sparkles on top of a solid color, too.

These are just small, easy ways to add a little more holiday cheer to your every day life!

Pumpkin Candles

17 Oct

This past weekend my parents had a big family dinner for Ian’s birthday and how lucky we are to have his family as the most special guests in from Michigan and Montana!  This entire weekend has been so incredible and I can’t wait to post about all of the fun things we’ve been up to but the fun hasn’t stopped yet!  My dad and Vicki were also able to come to the dinner which was so great to all be together.   I wish my brother and Liz could have joined, too.  Thankfully we will get to see them when my brother flies back to accept his Distinguished Flying Award through the air force next month.  Anyway, the dinner was great and I give all the credit of this post to my mom and Darrin for making these cute pumpkin candles I am posting about.

They were a fun way to bring Fall to the table!
