Valentine’s Day Playlist 2017!!

Hey guys!! Happy Saturday!! Valentine’s Day is on Tuesday, and I did a playlist last year, so I figured I’d do one again! I hope you guys enjoy! I’ll be adding more songs during the weekend, too. 🙂

(Ps: working on a little post about my trip to a Vermont – it should be up fairly soon!)

Have a great weekend! What’s your go-to Valentine’s Day song?!

 

Easiest Christmas Cards EVER!

Hey guys! Happy Saturday! As I write this I am knitting a Christmas gift for my friend (not at the same time, of course) and listening to the new Hamilton mixtape! (Jimmy Fallon, I LOVE YOU!!)

Today I am sharing literally the EASIEST Christmas card DIY. It’s extremely customizable, which I always love. I think customizable DIYs are awesome cause you can make them suit your style, and use what you already have at your house!

What I Used:
-christmas construction paper (I got mine in the $1 section @ Target!)
-glue
-scissors
-washi tape
-star gems
-pencil

Yep. THAT’S IT! If you’re a crafter or you’ve got a ton of craft supplies, I’m sure you’ve got all of this in your drawers.

I did two different types of cards, but as I said above, you can change everything to make it suit your style. I just figured I would share the ones I made this year! There are a ton of great ideas on Pinterest.

I am one of those people who likes making their cards opposed to buying them. Sometimes I get so proud of my cards that I’m more excited for people to see them than the actual present haha! I hope you guys enjoyed this and maybe try to make them yourself, cause they were super fun to make!

Can you believe there are only, like, 15 days til Christmas?!?!?!? AHHH!!!

Would You Rather? Christmas Edition!

Hello everyone! The week is alllllllmost over. YAY! I’m so excited for the weekend. I’m crossing my fingers that there’s a snow day or two hour delay on a Monday, cause it’s supposed to snow! I love snow. I think winter is my favorite season, of course I say that during every season. Haha!

I know these tags are kinda cheesy, but I love doing them! So, here’s the would you rather: Christmas edition!

1. Have to sing Jingle Bells loudly every time you enter a room OR wear a santa suit to work/school every day for a week?

Definitely sing jingle bells. Even though I’m not much of a singer, I would much rather do that then wear a santa suit!

2. Not celebrate Christmas this year, OR not celebrate your birthday?

As much as I love celebrating my birthday, I would probably choose Christmas! There’s something that’s just more exciting and festive. Plus you wouldn’t get to do fun things, like decorate!

3. Have Frosty the Snowman as your best friend OR Rudolph?

Hands down Rudolph. I just LOVE him! That movie is awesome. Frosty is pretty cool (get it? Cool?! Hahahahah.) but he would MELT!

4. Have mistletoe hanging in your bedroom doorway OR have a large, decorated Christmas tree in your bedroom doorway?

Hm, I guess mistletoe. A tree in the doorway seems awfully annoying!

5. Have Christmas tree tinsel for hair OR have fingernails that light up like Christmas lights?

Oh, this question is tooo hard! I’m going to have to go with tinsel. I know it may be itchy and uncomfortable, but tinsel is so so so pretty!

6. Live in a giant gingerbread house OR ride on the polar express?

Gingerbread house! Last year I made gingerbread houses with my friends, and it made me realize how cute they are, and how DELICOUS!

7. Receive socks for Christmas OR a dictionary?

100% socks! Who doesn’t love a new pair of socks!?

8. See The Nutcracker OR dance in The Nutcracker?

I’m pretty sure I would ruin The Nutcracker if I danced in it. LOL.

9. Have a job wrapping presents at the mall OR have a job taking pictures of children sitting on Santa’s lap at the mall?

I love wrapping presents even though I suck at it! I’d have to say take pictures cause that’s something I love to do!

10. Eat your cereal with eggnog instead of milk OR eat a candy cane sandwich?

I know a lot of people who hate eggnog, but I really like it. I feel like that would taste just fine, if you get the right kind of cereal. But, a candy cane sandwich could be interesting if you add the right flavors…

I’ll leave you with one more question for you to answer in the comments if you’d like:

Would you rather have a nose that glows like Rudolph OR have elf ears?

Happy Thursday!

Gift Guide: For the Book Lover!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today’s gift guide is for the BOOK LOVER! We all know one, and I am proud to say I am one as well. 🙂  I’ll be sharing my favorite books I read this year towards the end of December!

1. Novel Teas – LOL get it, novel teas?  Cheesy, but these are SO COOL. With each tea bag it has a quote from a famous book or author. I would totally keep all of them and put them on my bulletin board!

2. Book Lovers’ Soy Candle: Old Books – I have seen this all over Pinterest and I think it’s such a cool product! I’m pretty sure they have other scents too!

3. The Book Was Better Sweatshirt – I mean, come on. This is true for everything! (Can’t find the exact link to it, but those are some others on Amazon!)

4. Personal Library Kit – I HATE when I don’t get a book returned to me, so this is perfect if you’re always lending out books!

5. Just One More Chapter Mug – Super cute and extremely accurate. Haha.

6. Read More Enamel Pin – I am just digging these enamel pins. Adorable!

Which one would you get for a book lover you know, or for yourself? 😉

Favorite Christmas Movies!

We can all agree: Christmas movies are the absolute best. Next to Christmas music, they are the best way to get in the holiday spirit! I figured out how to put GIFs in my posts, so I had fun finding these! (It was quite easy, I can’t believe I just figured it out haha!) Here’s a little roundup of my favorites:

1. Elf

IMG_0388.GIF

I mentioned this yesterday, but can’t we all agree Elf is THE best Christmas movie EVER?!? Yes, everything on this list is awesome, but Elf definitely wins. There are so many quotable lines and they’re all HILARIOUS!

2. Home Alone 2: Lost in New York

IMG_0389.GIF

I just watched this last night and I must say it’s way better than the first one! I feel like a lot more happens and there are more great characters! AND, obviously since it’s set in New York, and any movie set there is automatically the best. 🙂

3. Charlie Brown Christmas

img_0392

I love everything Charlie Brown. The Christmas one is definitely my favorite, next to Thanksgiving.

4. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

IMG_0394.GIF

Next to Elf, this is definitely the goofiest Christmas movie! SO FUNNY.

5. A Christmas Story

IMG_0397.GIF

I just think that kid (Ralphie, right?!) is so cute!! And that bunny costume is the best. I want one haha!

6. Polar Express

img_0398

I’ve only seen this movie a few times at school, but I think it’s a really cool story. The way they animate it is kinda creepy though… is that just me? Lol. Plus, Tom Hanks is in it! I really like that song “Believe,” too!

7. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

IMG_0400.GIF

OK this is a CLASSIC, and I am obsessed with Hermey the Elf! I think I like him better than Buddy… :0  He’s soooo adorable!

So those were my favorite Christmas movies…which ones did I miss? I’d love to hear your favorites so I can watch some more this year! Happy Monday!

Holiday Playlist 2016!

IMG_0387.JPG

Hey guys!! I am SO excited to share my holiday playlist today! Christmas music is just the best. I tried not to repeat any songs or artists, but it’s so hard to as there are SO many great covers! I will be adding more songs all throughout December, and you can check out my playlist from last year here.

The first song, White Winter Hymnal, is one of my all time favorite Christmas songs. I just think it’s so beautiful!

Some of my other favorites are Last Christmas (I fell in love with the song when they did it on Glee… that cover is so good/so sad!) and Little Saint Nick. (I LOVE the She & Him cover.)

Speaking of She & Him, their older album is one of my favorites, but they just came out with a new one this year, and it’s awesome! Holiday Wishes by Idina Menzel, Wonder by Handsome and Gretyl, White Christmas by Brooke White, and That’s Christmas to Me by Pentatonix are some of my other favorite albums!

What are your favorite holiday songs and albums? 🙂 Let me know if you checked this playlist out!
