The Most Fun Christmas Ornaments!

Ok, so yeah, I don’t have a tree up this year (or really since maybe 2007) but that doesn’t mean that I don’t like Christmas ornaments. I grew up with a mish mosh tree that had a variety of my grandmother’s antique ornaments, ornaments I made in school (presumably out of construction paper and popsicle sticks) and random ornaments that my mother bought me at Disney World and other assorted gift shops.  Not that I don’t love a good family-style tree, I do, but there’s something elegant and fun about a tree with a theme.  Here are three fun theme picks:

1. Cupcakes: WHO doesn’t love a good cupcake?  A tree full of scrumptious snacks sounds like fun to me.
2. Leopard (and other assorted animal prints): It’s girly and fun, just make sure you don’t go all Jersey Shore with it. Keep it simple.
3. PANTONE: I lovvvve love PANTONE anything, as you know, so obviously having an entire tree full of the assorted shades  would just be the coolest thing ever.

The Monday Rundown

Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12-Hour Lipstick: As you know, I’m a TOTAL sucker for packaging and Tarte always takes the cake, aside from the actual gorgeous color, of course.

Philip Crangi frame: Neiman Marcus for Target collection?  Yes, please.  I’m in LOVE with this frame.

Thale Blanc Pouchette: I’m always looking for the perfect concert purse.  One that will hold the necessities (credit card, cash, cell phone and lip gloss) and this pouchette is perfect for such an event.  I love the cross-body chain strap and it’s just the right size for everything you would need.

Red velvet cupcake in a jar: The whole cupcake in a jar thing has been done but, hey, I’m still not over it.  And red velvet? YES.

The Monday Rundown

Michael Todd Organics Charcoal Detox Cleanser: I’m always slightly skepitcal when it comes to organic beauty but I genuinely really love this charcoal cleanser.  It’s moisturizing on my dry, sensitive skin and I love how silky my skin feels after I use it. Done deal.

DKNY Sparkle Strap Watch: I’m not usually a watch girl but I love this gold sparkle version for the holidays…so cute.

Birthday cake pancakes: My birthday is in March.  But I REALLY want these birthday pancakes like RIGHT NOW.

New York state mirror: I saw this super cool mirror in this Refinery29 article and had to have it. I’m planning a gallery wall around it, right above my couch…pics to come.

The Monday Rundown

Z Gallerie Zig Zag Canvas Bag: I love a good chevron, especially when it’s black and white and perfect for day time.  I want this tote for the beach, especially since it matches nearly all of my bikinis.

Epicuren Pumpkin Apple Spice Peel: Pumpkin is fall, let’s face it.  I recently tried this Pumpkin Apple Spice Peel and it’s pretty fantastic.  You can actually smell the pumpkin and spice in the product and my skin was left feeling really refreshed.

Greek-Key Mirror: I’m in the process of looking for a some mirrors for my living room and this key-patterned version just might be a winner.

Pumpkin Gnocchi with Brown Butter Sage Sauce: If you aren’t already reading my friend Felicia’s food blog, you should be.  She cooks (and also Instagrams) the BEST, I repeat BEST, food ever.  Gnocchi is one of my cult favorites so this fall version is next on my to-do list.

The Monday Rundown

Z Gallerie Aquamarine Zig Zag (aka chevron) Frame: Chevron is so happening right now and I love the way this aquamarine (my birthstone, by the way), is subtle but still super girly.

Essie nail polish in “Skirting The Issue”: Oxblood is on trend for fall and, of course, Essie launched this dark red in its fall collection.  It’s the perfect red for fall!

House of Harlow 1960 Engraved Snake Double Finger Wrap Ring: I got this amazing ring as a gift (c/o L’OREAL) but it’s no secret that I love all things House of Harlow 1960 AND double finger rings. I can already tell you that it’s gonna be a fall staple.

Spiked Oreo Milkshake: I recently went to Go Burger for the first time with my friend John and he convinved me (ok, it didn’t take much convincing) to try their AMAZING spiked Oreo milkshake.  What can I say besides OMG?  It’s just brilliant.  I adapted the regular Oreo milkshake recipe with THIS recipe, which includes the booze.



The Monday Rundown

Oscar Blandi Texture & Volume Spray: Texture and volume?  I like it. Oscar is a master so it’s no surprise that this product does exactly what it says – lasting body and texture and flexible hold.

Monroe Black Chiffon Wrap Dress: Love this dress.  The belt (sold separately) really makes the dress BUT I still love an LBD, an this one is no exception.

Alex Elman Chardonnay: I’m a big wine lover and this Argentinian chardonnay is pretty amazing.  What I love even more (aside from the taste) is the fact that this wine is organic, which involves no barrel aging and, of course, no harmful pesticides.

Anthropologie Pieced Geom Mirror: I’ve been shopping around for a new mirror for my bedroom and I’m really liking this Anthro piece.  Thoughts?
