My Life Lately

Hi everyone! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, etc., etc. I realized I haven't done an update since the beginning of November so I thought I'd let people know what I've been up to. My family came out for Thanksgiving, which was so nice. My aunt and uncle hosted us at their house in Pacific Palisades and we had a group of about 25 people. It was so fun to not have to travel and to show my family around our new hood!

At the beginning of December, work was ramping up at johnnie-O with the holiday season and exams were on the horizon at FIDM so it was busy busy busy. I'm happy to say I passed (yay!) and went home for the holidays. 

Christmas in Connecticut was lovely. Riley played New York and New Jersey and then we got to bring him home with us. Santa was very good to me this year. My family and I headed down to Boca Grande where I am currently writing this post. Lulu had her 16th birthday last night, which was so fun! Can't believe how old she's getting! I've had such a great time with friends and family with great food and great fun. Anyways, quick update but I'll hopefully have more time to post this week! Talk soon!

Makeup Bag Update: Favorite Lip Colors



The Bobbi Brown lip gloss, Tarte lipstick in watermelon and Nars lipstick in catfight (a beautiful nude/pink color) have been my go-to's this holiday season. The Tarte lipstick is the perfect watermelon/red for those of us with pink/cool undertones and the Nars catfight lipstick is quickly becoming a staple. What are your favorites?? Any must-haves I should know about?

Elements of Style Bedroom Update

I adore Erin Gates' blog, Elements of Style, and her decorating style and taste so I was so excited to see what she did with her bedroom renovation. It did not disappoint! If there's one thing I want when I'm older it's gotta be a 4-poster bed. There is just nothing better and more elegant. Erin really wanted one for her bedroom but she couldn't find one she quite liked so she did a design collaboration with Kristin Drohan and designed her own! It is fab. Light wood and a faux leather tufted headboard? Swoon. Her fabrics and colors and everything are perfect and I love all of the hardware and custom details in her master bath and closet. I would take this whole situation as is...

Gifts for the Littles


 
Below are a few fun gifts for the little peeps in your life. I have a 5 month old godson and an 11 year old godson so I am on the hunt for the perfect Christmas gifts for them. For Jack, the younger one, I'm thinking the early rider push-along would be a fun one and for my older godson, Charlie, I may go with the snowball launcher (he already has one of those nifty skateboards) and a fathead of Rickie Fowler (not shown here...). Of course, you can never go wrong with a johnnie-O Jr. polo, 1/4 zip, bathing suit, etc. etc. (shameless plug but I mean it..) What are you guys getting for the kiddos in your lives?
