Birthdays, Wine & Christmas-- Oh my!

Well people, there is 6 days until Christmas. Yes, if you have not gotten all your holiday shopping done, now is the time to get your butt to the mall.

On top of Christmas, there is exactly 1 day until I turn 29! And exactly 2 days until the 5th Annual Wine Tasting party. My favorite time of year for sure, and now you can see why.

Time to get Cozy.

There is nothing better than getting snuggled up on the couch with some hot chocolate near the Christmas tree, lights twinkling, fireplace ablaze, with loved ones, watching a great holiday classic. Seriously, my favorite thing in the world this time of year. It just warms the heart and soul.

So which holiday classics are my favorite? Well, here are my top 5 holiday movies of all time.

Vintage Gucci. This is a bag that was passed down to me from my mom. I love it not only because it is an amazing bag, but also because it has history and there is nothing better than fashion with history. It is incredible how those classic pieces just get better with age. They become more than just an accessory, they become a series of memories. Nostalgia sets in each time you wear it. Best feeling ever.

Holiday Sweater Love.

'Tis the season of ugly sweater parties! The crazy thing is novelty sweaters are hot in this winter! I am not sure how everyone feels about this particular new trend, but when one of my friends invited us to his annual ugly sweater party, I embraced the trend full force! I even threw in a Santa hat and jingle bell earrings for good measure.

Ultimate Gift Guide for Him.

We are well into the holiday shopping season, so I thought I would put together a little Gift Guide for the Gentlemen in your life. I scoped out Nordstrom again (check out the Ultimate Gift Guide for Her, if you haven't!) to find some amazing gifts for men and put them into two categories: Gifts under $50 & Gifts under $100. Nordstrom offers free shipping and returns, so that should help you save some X-Mas dough. Hope this helps you out during this crazy holiday shopping season!
