What a week! Coming back from a long holiday weekend, it was tough to go back to a normal work schedule. Not to mention the fact that Thanksgiving was so late that we didn’t even have a chance to breathe before Christmas preparations began. How crazy was it that Cyber Monday fell on the first of December? It definitely made me feel more pressure to buy more, but luckily I walked away with only a few essentials like a puffy winter coat. I hope you all found some fabulous personal or gift items during the sales. There is really no reason to add more stress to the holidays with a shrinking checking account. If you’re still trying to figure out what to get your loved ones this year, stay tuned because next week will be full of fun and creative gift guides. Also, in case you missed it, I am collaborating with BattleShop again. Visit www.battleshop.com to play along with me and build a fabulous Winter Essentials wardrobe! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Take the time to enjoy the festive activities the city has to offer like holiday markets, ice-skating, and seeing the tree at Rockefeller Center. Before you all run off to enjoy the weekend, check out links I have discovered this week.
COLOR OF THE YEAR: Are you ready? The Pantone color of the year is…Marsala? When I first heard, I immediately wanted to eat my favorite Indian dish Chicken Tikka Masala. After doing some research on Pantone’s pick, I am not sure if the color is for me. How would you wear it?
IT’S TIME TO DUST OFF YOUR TIARA: According to The New York Times, tiaras are the new scrunchy. As a formal prissy child, I am delighted over this new trend and I am glad I can wear my tiara and no longer be judged!
TIS THE SEASON: I don’t know if it’s the holiday season, or if it’s just my sweet tooth, but I have had the craving for Christmas cookies. I’ve never baked before, but there’s nothing like the present. Since I have no clue where to start, hopefully this list will get me in the right direction.
IT’S IN THE DETAILS: This year, I want to go the extra mile and do my own gift-wrapping. I know that it’s so much quicker to have the store do it, but when you do it yourself, it is more personal and is a special touch that goes a long way.
