eeeeee! Even though we didn't get as much snow as most of our city last night, those few little snowflakes get me so excited! 'They' say that it's going to be a cold winter, I'll probably kick myself for saying this later, but I'm excited about it. Having a white christmas would be the best. Fingers and toes are crossed!

christmas fever.

I told myself I wouldn't decorate for Christmas until the first weekend in December, just too prolong my excitement for the holidays. Turns out that weekend is going to be busy - so good news, looks like the halls are getting decked this weekend! I can't even remember what we bought last year, so now I have time to take things out of boxes and spend time looking for some additions to our holiday decor. Some decor inspiration to get me going!
38 days till Christmas! In case anyone was curious!

christmas wishes.

I blame it on Starbucks. That red cup gets me excited for the holidays, WAY too early. I've already started listening to Christmas tunes. Michael Buble and Justin Bieber (hey don't judge, its a good album!) if you really want to know. It's comforting to know I'm not the only one in the house that's this excited - I caught a hint of some bing crosby holiday music coming from Marcus' office a few nights ago. I also blame writing a paper on my laptop, for my countless hours perusing the internet for wish list items. My attention span when it comes to analyzing research is about as long as the memory of a goldfish. This list may be more of a lust list for christmas, but nothings stopping me from fantasizing when the most exciting thing I've done all day is make the bed. 

1. Paige Skinny Jeans. These jeans have to be the most popular skinny jeans amongst celebs. I tried a pair on, and it was love at first try!
2. J. CREW velvet schoolboy blazer. Plush velvet is so chic for the holidays, and I've been wanting a blazer that pops and something that is slightly more exciting than black. 
3. Michael Kors jet set ipad case. Seriously how awesome is this - looks like an oversized clutch! Of course this would make no sense without #4...
4. Ipad 2 in white. Enough said. 
5. Aveda lip shine in pomelo. I have another shade of this lip gloss and I love it! It has a minty taste, and lasts for a long time. 
6. Clarisonic Mia. Consider it a super, but gentle, exfoliator for your face. People who have them, love them!
8. Vince Camuto Ellen Flat in Bisque. I've been searching for the perfect nude flat and I spotted these at nordstrom this week.

if we had a little girl...

... I would do my best to replicate this ballerina birthday party. Seriously? So cute! My birthday's just around the corner, and I don't see any reason why I can't celebrate in a pink sequined tutu. However, if that falls through I will settle for a ballerina cupcake.

I've been craving some oversized, wide rim, plastic framed glasses. I haven't tried any on yet, but I hope can pull them off like these girls. These glasses make everything else seem a little more stylish. Since hearing about Warby Parker, where you can get vintage style prescription glasses for a mere $95, I've been contemplating ordering a pair. Plus, for every pair ordered Warby Parker provides a pair of glasses for someone in need. How great is that? 

dream getaway.

Every girl dreams of the tiffany blue boxes, including me! Now, the St.Regis Hotel in New York is giving guests a chance to be inside a tiffany box - in the Tiffany Suite. The suite has floor to ceiling windows overlooking Fifth Avenue, a bar cart accessorized with Tiffany stemware, a chandelier that looks like it's draped with jewelry and the classic tiffany blue walls. A black shift dress,  strands of pearls and a croissant for breakfast is all you would need to make your Holly Golightly experience complete. Is this where we're going on our honeymoon? Definitely not. One night in this suite costs as much as our whole honeymoon budget. A girl can dream right?
