december favorites I

Gold studded anything. It’s no secret that I love gold studs and spikes, and I lusted for the above clutch all month. I’m also in love with gold zippers, gold studs on shoes, gold EVERYTHING. Give me all the (fake) gold!

Merlot soaked parm. I’ve talked about this cheese all year, but it’s my absolute favorite snack. IT’S SO GOOD. A little goes a long way. I buy this one at DeLallo.

My Whitney English planner. I’ve had it all month long but it only became active today as it started on the 30th. Man. I’ve been so excited to use it because it has a day on an entire page. For all of you obsessive list makers, this is for you. It’s already packed.

Big ass earrings. I’ve been all about huge earrings this holiday season (the kind that kill your ears) and even though I only wear them for a few hours, I adore them. it’s my new thing. I found some on sale at jcrew last month (similar to these, also where I got the ones in this post) and totally love ’em.

The talenti peppermint bark gelato. Just kill me. I found it in my grocery store and that was the end of me.

Crafts! You know I got all weird this month and did crafts. I’m still obsessing over this martha glitter. So obnoxious and perfect.

Homemade chex mix. I shared on facebook, but I used the recipe on the back (I literally just typed “bacon” instead of back, huh) of the box but browned the butter, added some cheez it’s, bourbon smoked paprika and a little bit of parmesan. GAH.

Speaking of, this bourbon smoked paprika. I found it at my whole foods and while I’ve used smoked paprika for years, this one is by far my favorite.

My frye boots. I know I mentioned them last month but I’ve LIVED in them this month too. Like to the point where it’s too much and I really need to differentiate. But I caaaaaan’t. I enjoy them so.

The Flavor Bible. It seems like a recurring theme in this post, but I’ve had this book for years but it really saved me this month. When recipe block hits, this solves all problems.

House of Cards. We watched the entire series in two whole days and I’m hooked. We loved it and now I can’t even wait until February. And yes, we did watch Orange is the New Black a few months ago and while I liked it, I’m just sort of… meh.

This brussels salad. I’ve still been eating sprouts like it’s my job. I just can’t get over it.

These cozy gap scarves. They are SO freaking soft and warm. And huge. You know I’m a crazy scarf person and this fits the bill.
