Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays Everyone! I apologize for my long absence in the blogging world...buying a house & moving - then going into the holidays - makes a girl forget about her blog :) Not "forget" per se, but to be honest, I was just so busy with house stuff that there was nothing exciting to blog about. We are loving the new house and ALL the space!!! We have already had a couple of dinner parties, a great Christmas party, and we are hosting my mom's side of the family for Christmas on the 26th.

Just wanted to check by in and wish everyone a wonderful, safe holiday filled with special memories! Thank you for another year of reading my blog! It means the world to me!

Here's a few festive things that I've been doing lately.... Enjoy! xx

Table set for our first dinner party! Taken with iPhone..

Did a fun manicure on myself, with Sally Hansen "Gilty Pleasurese" and the copper glitter from Sephora for OPI

Love this color combo for the holidays!

The first gift I wrapped this year! Y'all know I had to add leopard in there some how!

Super cute & easy candy idea...
Take the old timey candy canes, dip them in melted chocolate, and sprinkle with any kind of sprinkles

Another version of the manicure I did on myself for our Christmas party!
I used Essie's "Marshmellow" and the red glitter from Sephora for OPI

I made this punch (from December's InStyle) for my Christmas party, and it was a HIT!
....and so easy! A definite crowd-pleaser!
