Thanksgiving Picks on Wayfair

One of my favorite things is to decorate for the holidays especially for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Envisioning what my future home is going to be like is my new obsession and it is so fun putting together mood boards of my dream pieces. Who doesn’t love putting together your ultimate home and working towards that? I know I do 🙂

When Wayfair approached me to pick out my favorite Blogger picks for Thanksgiving on their site, I jumped at the chance with Thanksgiving cheer. I picked my five favorite things to inspire you to shop on Wayfair this holiday season!

Thankful for you all!

I chose this pillow because there is so much to be thankful for this year and in this moment. This pillow represents that and just adds so much joy to the room for this Thanksgiving season. 
I am really into plaid and pumpkins so when I saw them both together I just knew they were at the top of my Thanksgiving list from Wayfair. They add that extra Thanksgiving cheer to the room, which I love. 
I am a sports nut all year round, but football is definitely one of my favorites. It brings so many people together at one another’s houses. It creates such a community around it that this sign is a must have for me this holiday season. Go team go! 
Giving thanks is so important and this beautiful sign is the perfect reminder. It will go perfectly on any windowsill or mantel. I love the simplicity yet beautiful touch it adds to any room and it can be up all year round. 
Candles are such a great item to put you in the mood for the holiday season. Everyone seems to have a scent that they love and gives them all the feels of certain amazing holiday moments with loved ones. This candle is the perfect scent that can give you that reminder and I know gives me that too 🙂

Christmas Time is Here with Fabulous Flare and Tradition

Christmas is here and I am smiling from ear to ear. This is my favorite time of year for many reasons. Yes, it is exciting to get gifts and give them, but this is not why I love Christmas. I will keep it short and sweet as to why because let me tell you this topic alone could be months worth of blog posts.

Christmas Time for me is my favorite because it means laughter with family and friends, sitting by the Christmas tree, eating a delicious honey baked ham, A Christmas Story movie will probably always make an apperance, Christmas mass where we all get to rock amazing holiday fashion(the fashions pictured are two of my favorite looks this year !) and yes rocking my new Christmas PJS.

Christmas time is all about tradition and that tradition is spending time with each other and yes we do open gifts, but what I get excited about the most is watching everyone else open their gifts and seeing them get giddy. With my family there seems to always be lots of laughter when we open our stockings and gifts, which creates such a warmth in me 🙂

Christmas time tradition also includes picking up a tree, decorating it with family ornaments, shopping together, wrapping presents, baking yummy cookies, putting up lights with my dad and in recent years, I have been going to Pinterest for a couple new DIY decorations for each new Christmas time season.

My accessories for the holidays always include this heart sparkle ring from my mom. It is sentimental and an added bonus it sparkles. This amazing bracelet was gifted to me by Pura Vida, which is fun and festive. Also makes for an amazing gift 🙂

I will end this year’s Christmas time post with why Christmas time for me is extra exciting. The reason is because it is my Amazing mother’s birthday the very same day we celebrate Christmas ! We celebrate it by going to a fun movie, opening bday gifts and fullfilling my mom’s sweet tooth with a birthday cake.

With Jingle Bells playing, trees shining with tinsel and cookies being eaten, what do you love most about the holiday season ?

Holiday Decor for your Home

With the holidays not only comes family and friends and party, but holiday decorating and decor too becomes apart of the holiday season. It is one of my favorite things about Christmastime because not only do I get to make it pretty for Christmas, but for my mom’s birthday, which happens to be Christmas Day.
The decor just adds to the special feeling of Christmas, family and love. It’s my favorite holiday because of my mom and my love of Christmas and holiday decor grew from that.

Here are many of the Christmas/holiday decorations we have at our house to help give you last minute ideas and the last couple are compliments of Google.

Btw, Trader Joes has a great gingerbread house kit! My mom surprised me with one and let’s me be a big kid 🙂

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays !
