Woohoo! Even though I am so sad that this season is over, my December lifestyle favorites are some of my favorite to talk about because I always have some new faves from my birthday in November and Christmas! This year is no different and here are the things I’m loving right now. I’m currently looking for a new book to read, so leave your suggestions below!

Midnight Sun Sweater. I am allll about these long sweaters right now. I actually just wear them more around the house, but this one is definitely nice enough to wear out running errands and stuff. I’ve wanted this sweater since I saw it in the athleta catalog earlier this fall and was SO excited that my athleta had one (albeit the last one!) in my size. As a note, it runs a little big – I usually wear a medium in tops but bought this in a small and can still wear shirts under it.

The Nourished Planner. If you saw my unboxing of this over my 12 days of Christmas, you know how obsessed I am. I cannot wait to start using this next week. It’s fabulous.

Tory Burch Stud Earrings. One of my friends bought me these for my birthday and I LOVE them! They add just a little bit of interest to regular gold studs and I think they are so pretty.

MY OTHER RECIPES

For TV this month, we are still loving The Affair and This Is Us. Such different shows and both SO good.

Target Cable Knit Bootie Slippers. These are soooo comfy and cute! I usually go through a pair of these each year, and these are for winter 2017!

Bon Appetit’s Buche de Noel. This is the most labor intensive and delicious cake EVER. My cousin and I made it for Christmas Eve and I think it’s a new tradition – not to mention it is so incredibly good.

Sugarfina Bento Box. I LOVE THIS! I’m normally not a sugary candy person, but I bought these as gifts for a few people and have one for new year’s eve. I think they are so super fun!

Luminara Candle and Remote. I’ve never cared for flameless candles, but my mom got me hooked on this candle. And she bought me the remote for my birthday, which is a game changer. I have this in a lantern on my mantle and it looks so pretty in a dark room. Adds the perfect amount of ambient light.

Eggnog lattes from Starbucks, but also homemade eggnog lattes with Califia Farms holidaynog.

Teavana White Chocolate Peppermint Tea. This is a repeat fave but I am still loving this to pieces. It’s out of my comfort zone and tastes so good.

Nordstrom Lingerie Pajamas. I am sooo not a pajama person because I’m always a million degrees and super hot, but these are so light and stretchy and comfy. I’ve never had pajamas like this and absolutely love them. Even if I’m just lounging around.

Williams Sonoma Chocolate Peppermint Wafer Cookies. These are the best non-homemade treat ever if you love mint + chocolate.

2017 Rifle Paper Desk Calendar. I use a big desk calendar to plan out my blog recipes for the month and have been working on this one for the last few weeks. I think it’s so pretty!
