Hi friend! Tonight is our Favorite Things Party and I’m so excited for it! We had to do it virtually last year, so that makes it extra special this year! It’s always so much fun to just get together with girlfriends (in jammies!) and eat, drink, talk, laugh, and of course, exchange gifts!
If you’re thinking of hosting your own favorite things party, or are just curious about how it works, go here. I wrote a detailed description of how we do it and how we make it super easy! No stressing allowed!
I also compiled a list of the Top 15 Gifts from the last five years if you want to check that out. I’ll be sure to share our party on Stories tonight if you want to join us and I’ll recap what everyone brought next week here on the blog.
We had a fun week on the blog wrapping up Cyber week- catch it all below if you missed anything!
DECEMBER LOVES GIVEAWAY
As a THANK YOU for reading and subscribing to my blog, I’m giving away EVERYTHING in my December Loves to one of my subscribers!
If you’re not subscribed, you can sign up here, and I will pick a winner at random and announce at the end of the month.
If you’re new to Loves, it’s where I share things I’m loving each month, with the aim to highlight fabulous things I swear by, some things I want to try, great deals, and under $50 finds! All perfectly appropriate for the flavor of each month! I love sourcing goodies and sharing them with you!
I don’t know about you, but I’m always crazy for Tory Burch bags and this one is no exception. It’s the Miller Mini leather crossbody bag that’s compact, but not too small. It has an inner divider that you don’t see in many crossbody bags and a slip pocket. Of course, I love the sleek style and it comes with a twisted crossbody strap as well as the gold chain strap.
This baby comes in handy everyday and what I love about it is that there’s no button to turn on and off. It turns on automatically when you set your mug on it and turns off when you pick it up. It’s sleek and minimal and keeps your coffee or tea hot! I have one on my living room end table, nightstand, and on my desk in my office!
I have decided what my friendly White Elephant gift this year will be this water bottle that encourages you to drink more by marking the time goal on the bottle. The bottle holds 32 ounces and goes from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. It’s really crazy how it helps you stay on track and I use mine everyday. I have the pink one, but I really like this dark green.
Did you hear the story where I gifted my Mom this luxe Barefoot Dreams robe two years ago? She’s like me and loves all things cozy and soft and was SMITTEN with this! I got her the plum color and it looked beautiful on her.
Well, funny thing is, she started wearing it to my house when she would come over. I mean, she’d have it on over her clothes, kind of like she was wearing it as a winter coat.
She has her own style, so I figured she must just be extra comfortable and warm in this.
But, it was a little weird when we’d go shopping or run errands, and she’d wear the robe as a coat. I never said anything, just let ‘her do her’ but of course, I thought it was a little odd.
Then, one day, about a year ago when it got cold again she called me and said, “I can’t find that cardigan you gave me.”
She went on to describe in detail what I had given her for Christmas the year before.
“Mom, that’s a ROBE!”
This oversize hand knitted chunky chunky throw is so homey and warm and I love the texture it brings to our living room. It was a splurge item when I popped into Pottery Barn last month, but one I definitely do not regret. It comes in several colors, and I went with the ivory, that will look great long after Christmas has come and gone. It’s on sale now!
