Blogmas Day 8: Snow Day

I mentioned in yesterdays post that we’ve been sort of snowed in for the past couple days. Well I managed to get outside to take some photos and I’m very excited about them.


I’m wearing a Black Peacoat from Aero, Camel Tie Back Sweater from Loft, Black H&M Skinny Trousers, I knitted my hat myself with Alpaca Baby grande yarn, and of course my Pillar Box Red Original Glossy Short Boots.


My makeup is the usual except on my lips is Benetint.


I was really excited to finally get my Red Hunter Boots out in the snow. I’ve been waiting since I got them in February. I definitely need to some wellie socks because even with the Dr. Scholls Cozy insoles my feet still felt a bit cold.

Howl is also a really big fan of the snow.


He liked digging and rubbing his nose in it.


He was absolutely caked in snow by the time I got him to come inside. Which he didn’t want to do. He wanted to stay outside all day long. I kinda did too, the snow was perfect for snowman building and snowball fights which we had plenty of.

I’m so excited that we’re getting snow this year and I’m hoping for many more snow days, just as perfect as this one.

Blogmas 2013: Stylish Sundays

I’m so excited to be doing Blogmas again this year. Since this the first day falls on Sunday, the first one is an outfit post. I don’t know if I’m going to continue only posting outfit’s on Sunday’s or if blogging everyday is going to change that.

This is what I wore to decorate my Tree with my family. I was inspired by a recent outfit that Love Meagan wore.


Dress: Unknown Shirt: The Limited Leggings: Hue Belt: Kate Spade Earrings: Kate Spade

On My Face: Nars Sheer Glow, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, Nars Deep Throat Blush, Lancome Eyeshadows, YSL Babydoll Mascara, Urban Decay Eyeliner, Lancome Lipgloss in Atomic Bomb

I thought this outfit was going to come out weird but I actually really loved it, honestly if I hadn’t seen LoveMeagan’s post recently then I never would have tried layering this blouse under this dress.


Howl is wearing a Disney Fleece Hoodie, with snowflakes and Mickey Heads on it. He really love the Christmas tree though. He’s a big fan of chewing it and all the ornaments. It’ll be interesting to see how putting the presents under it goes this year. My shoes are from Old Navy,




Thanksgiving Break

Since it’s the day before Thanksgiving, I’m just posting to annouce that for the next few days, I’ll be taking a break. I plan to spend these next few days rereading the Grimm’s Fairy Tales, shopping and eating my weight in leftovers.


Isn’t this just an absolutely gorgeous copy? My husband gave it to me a few years ago for my birthday. He got it from Barnes and Noble.

I promise I’ll be back on Sunday, to kick off Blogmas which I am very excited about doing again this year.

Gilly Hicks Wishlist

Or I Just Want To Be Cozy

It’s been absolutely forever since I’ve done one of these posts. And even longer since I’ve visited the Gilly Hicks Website. Until recently I’ve just been doing all my shopping at H&M or Sephora. Since my I fell into the GAP recently, I’ve been snapped out of that behavior. I was looking at all my favorite sites and I didn’t find much, except at Gilly Hicks.
Gilly Hicks Wish List
I fell in absolute love with some cozy things and decided that I just had to tell you guys about them. I’m being super careful with my money right now so hopefully they’ll have a promo code very soon.
First the Daytime Cozy Things
The first thing I’m lusting after is the GH Sport Full-Zip Jacket. I know that most people want the LuLu Lemon one, but I what I love about this one is it has a hood. My ears get cold and I don’t want to wear earmuffs to walk the dog. And while I adore my Superdry beanie, it doesn’t stay on my head that well. I also really like the Navy and Pink combo this has going on. Hot pink is my favorite color and so dark it’s almost black Navy is another color I’m in love with.
Then of course I want these Banded Boyfriend Sweatpants. I love the Boyfriend Sweatpants from V.S. Pink and I adore the GH Sweatpants I bought last year, so I know these will be amazing. Once again, I adore that Dark Navy. I see many Fall afternoons being spent curled up on the couch wearing these, reading on my Nook, or iPad.
I had to add in a Tee to go with the Sweatpants, because sometimes my brain is completely numb and all I can think is “Be Cozy.” I picked Grey for this post, but I also really like it in the Pink, Navy and Green colors.
Moving away from Daytime Cozy we have Nighttime Cozy.
I love stripes, I love button downs, I love pajama’s as previously evidenced by my Chirstmas Eve Blogmas post and pretty much all the Pajama’s my husband has ever given me. So of course I am completely in love with these Menswear Pajama Top and Bottoms. I really want these, and if I don’t manage to buy them myself before, then they will pop up on my Birthday Wishlist (It’s 2 and a half months away). These just look perfect, I want to wear them all fall long. I want them in all the colors, but mostly this stripey pattern.
Then finally we have this phone case which doesn’t fall into Day or Night Cozy, but it would be a cozy for my phone, so it fits. The phone case I have now is one from Sephora and I really don’t love it. It’s functional and says Sephora on it, that’s about it. But this one is bright green with a Koala wearing glasses and if you don’t think that’s completely adorable, well then I’m sorry, but I’m obsessed.
Yes, I know, I know, I shop at Sephora WAY to much if I have a Sephora phone case. I can’t help it.
