Christmas and holiday season

Be Merry


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!

Today is a day to be merry and enjoy the company of loved ones! I know I am definitely relaxing today, getting cozy with Sam, and watching all the Christmas movies I can squeeze in a day. Here is my Spotify playlist that I’ve been slowly building throughout the month of December. Warning: there are a lot of songs and IT WILL keep you in the Christmas mood all day long!

With love,

Christine & Kat


Tis the Season to Give


I know this is pretty last minute, but I know there are some procrastinators out there just like me! So from one procrastinator to another, here is what I’ve stumbled upon on my quest for quirky gifts for my friends and family! Did I forget to mention that these gifts are all under $60! Gifting on a budget just became less stressful. You’re welcome!

Covet: Madewell

Beauty in the basic. Madewell has got the basics down! I appreciate when designers reinvent the basic and turn it into something unique. Is it just me or do you also get excited when you see a retailer’s catalog in your mail? I love drawing inspiration from Madewell’s detailed catalogs! Every outfit is styled with grace and the photography is just so dreamy. I just wanted to quickly share my favorite cold weather clothing pieces from the Fall/Winter collection!

My all-time favorite piece out of this Fall/Winter collection is the black leather jacket (the price makes me cry a little inside, but the quality in the leather is noice). I’ve been dying to buy a new one and so far I can just dream about Madewell’s perfection.

Over the hump and on to the weekend! I am READY to unwind and lay in bed ALL WEEKEND!
