december favorites I

I skipped my November favorites in lieu of a big old holiday favorites this month! These are the things I’m absolutely loving, and some may be on major sale come Saturday. Share your faves below please please??

Nest Birchwood Pine Candle. I’ve mentioned it ten million times already, but by FAR my favorite candle of the year. Signature scent, I’m thinking until March.

Sam and Libby black boots. I’ve been on a search the past few months for shoes and boots that aren’t as high as I’m used to wearing now that I’m carrying a baby or pushing a stroller most of the time. I wore these all over NYC last month and they were super comfortable. Sleek too.

Williams Sonoma Peppermint Bark Chocolate Cookies. I know. I’ve rambled about these the ENTIRE month. They are just so insanely wonderful. I’m eating one right now! And they are on sale!

Winter Stroll. This was a favorite a few months back, but I REALLY wanted something Christmasy to read and ended up rereading Winter Street and Winter Stroll. I love my Elin! And now I’m craving a Nantucket trip. 

Lululemon high waisted wunder unders. I desperately needed a new pair of long black wunder unders – it has been a few years and mine are just beat. The girl asked if I wanted the high-waisted ones and I’m like… sure. Um, obsessed. I absolutely love them. And even though there are many pairs of leggings that I love from Athleta and I found some that I like at Old Navy too, I just can’t find an exact comparison for the wunder unders. I also don’t have any problems with them being sheer like some have mentioned.

My Leuchtturm notebook. I got super into the bullet journal this month and have found it to be extremely effective (I’m a huge pen and paper person) – and I really like the dots in this notebook. So much more than I expected. I think I even like this notebook better than my moleskines which is huuuuuge.

On that same note, this Staedtler fineliner pen set. These pens are my dream come true. I’ve used le pen pens for years now but it’s probably been close to two years since I bought any and most are running out. These are so fabulous, write exactly how I want them to and… just look at the colors! I’m a convert.

As usual, ALL of the Target wrapping supplies. Pure gold.

Nespresso Swiss Chocolate pods. I freaking LOVE my nespresso and almost died when they had limited edition chocolate pods. Just as delicious as you’d imagine.

This Shawl Cardigan in the color wine tasting. I really like all of the pieces I’ve bought by CALIA and this is no exception. Perfect with leggings and boots!

Pentatonix Christmas album. Max and I have been listening and singing to this NONSTOP. It is in my head all day and night. I love and hate it. So good.

Gap Red Faux Fur Puffer Vest. I’m pretty sure I swore I wouldn’t live in vests this year, but our weather is absolutely calling for it at the moment. It’s way too warm for a coat! And this one… I’m having a moment with red right now. Super love it.

Holiday pillows. I splurged on a few of these around black Friday from Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn and what I love is that some of them are just pillow covers, so I don’t have a ridiculous overabundance of pillows. Or storage come spring. So fun and make our family room festive.

Snapseed. I’ve revisited this app a lot lately and love it for some photo editing. Mostly because my usual favorite, Afterlight, seems to be on the fritz and keeps shutting down unexpectedly. Snapseed is my new but old go-to.

Victoria’s Secret Fair Isle socks. Wow. These are SO thick but also stretchy and just wonderful. Even though I’ve only been able to enjoy them for two days thanks to above average temperatures, I adore them. They aren’t available online anymore but may be in a store!

The Chandon holiday bottles. I can’t help it. Adorable.
