Happy New Year!

Happy New Year friends! While I'm not typically someone who makes New Years resolutions, this year one of my goals is to make more of a consistent blogging effort. While this year promises to be an exciting and busy year filled with friend's having babies, weddings, and parties. I'll be planning some of those parties and hope to share my ideas for the events and other items on my blog. Cheers to 2013!


Christmas Decor

It's not much of a secret how much I love Christmas and decorating for the holiday.  This year it felt extra special to decorate our house for Christmas.  Some of my decor were passed down from my grandparents like the "marble tree" and "Merry Christmas" banner, and others were an easy DIY like the pine cone garland.


Wish List :: Christmas Presents

I have a few things on my Christmas wish list this year that I'm hoping to see under the tree in a few weeks. 

1) iPad :: I've been wanting an iPad for multiple reasons, and one being that I have a two hour commute everyday and would love to look at a screen larger than my iPhone. 
2) Love Actually :: Every year for the past few years I've heard of people watching Love Actually, and I can't believe that I've never seen it!
3) Weekend trip :: Although I only live a couple hours from Seattle it's been years, like 10+ that I've been in Seattle for longer than a day. I would love a weekend trip to Seattle or San Francisco.
4) Nail polish :: I just bought a bottle of Sally Hansen complete manicure on clearance at Target and now want it in every color.  It really is a complete manicure, and it dries super fast!


Outfit Crush

I love how cozy this look is and it's perfect for a day of running errands or just hanging out at home.  If you don't already have a baseball shirt in your closet I recommend buying one. It can easily be dressed up or down, and if worn under a blazer look great as you only see a tiny bit of a contrasting color around the collar.


Recipe :: Fleur de Sel Caramels

         {Simple ingredients :: not pictured, candy thermometer}

{Once heated to the correct temperature (248*) pour onto oiled parchment paper and sprinkle fleur de sel on top}

{After refrigerating for a couple hours, cut up into desired size and wrap in wax paper}

Over a year ago I posted that I wanted to make fleur de sel caramels, and since then I've made them a half dozen times. They're actually easier to make than you would think and everyone love them.  These would make great Christmas presents and it's a super easy recipe to double!
