holiday hangover.

merry day after christmas. I hope your holidays were the best to date. I also hope you do not have to do anything today, but lounge in your pajamas + drink cups upon cups of coffee. or that’s what I’ve planned for myself. and in my suitcase, I strategically packed the most perfect sleep shirt to express my morning after christmas needs.

and just in case you were thinking, I must get one of those sleep shirts so I don’t have to speak first thing in the morning, maybe. here are is the one I’m wearing + a few other favorites from forever 21 ..



gift guide: for the men.

my husband is the best gift giver. without fail, he always amazes me by somehow remembering an item I mentioned once upon a time that I wanted or needed. it’s so thoughtful and a skill I never acquired. but I do try.

my best advice: stick with what he likes, but take it up a notch. and include some novelty items. for my husband and his newly acquired ring on his left hand ..he needs a safe place for it when it’s not on his finger pretty much while he’s asleep so it should obviously be kept on a gold stag head. or wood coasters for the man cave. bacon hot cocoa. or a desk game to keep him entertained for lulls at work.

the 12 days of christmas.

on sunday, december 14th, we will be a mere 12 days from christmas. to ensure we fit it all in, I’ve created a countdown with festive tasks for each day. everything from baking cookies, to a friendly gingerbread house competition, and watching your favorite holiday movie. follow along with mine or create your own. but whatever you do, don’t let christmas arrive before you fully enjoy this time of year.


and do not forget to fill the stockings along the way.

12 days of christmas

mark your calendars.

happy monday.
