This Year's Christmas Decor

This is probably my last Christmas in my little student housing rental. Apartment hunting for my own place begins in the new year! I'm okay staying where I am until June when I graduate, but if something great comes up closer to downtown where I'm now working, I won't say no.  

The design direction of my new place is definitely going to be less feminine and more sophisticated. I can't wait for a new slate (and my own kitchen)! In the mean time, I'm still loving my girl glam decor and played it up with my Christmas decorations for a sparkly, pastel Holiday!

Merry Christmas from Me to You

 I made it home to Waterloo where I will be spending Christmas and some much needed R&R with my family. I will be back in the New Year, but I wanted to take this time to wish the happiest of Holidays to you and your family. Thank you so much for following along my journey and for making this year such a success. I am so grateful for each and every one of you!  May God Bless you and shine in your hearts this joyous season.
(And yes, I know I overdid it with the tinsel on my little tree, but I kind of love it!).

Merry Christmas, my loves.

Oh (Flocked) Christmas Tree

I will be the first to admit I have never seen one of these in person, but I'm really smitten with the look of the snow on the branches. It seems a white Christmas isn't the norm anymore (dreaming of one this year of course! It's looking promising after the snowstorm we got this weekend), but this could be a fun way to ensure a snowy Christmas morning opening gifts. Would you do a flocked tree?

Bar Cart Art: Perfect Prints to Hang over your Bar

Holiday season is upon us - time to start planning for fabulous parties with lots of sequins and of course flowing drinks. Is your bar cart in order? If you are me, the answer is no...no it is not. But let's pretend it is styled with pretty champagne flutes (THESE are on my wishlist..please Santa?), striped straws, and a well stocked selection of liquor. All that's left is the blank wall space above. This calls for a round up of perfect prints for the party girl in all of us:
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 /6
I think these are so sassy and fun. If the holiday bash isn't at your place this year, wouldn't one of these make the perfect hostess gift? Bonus: Each print is under $30.
My heart belongs to the black and white Chanel one, it would go perfectly in my place....Santa, are you still reading?
