Friday Favorites

Happy Friday lovelies! I am linking up with Amanda for Friday Favorites, so let's get right into it!

Christmas Parties
It's officially party season! A very tartan Christmas was this year's theme and it was such a fun one!  I got this shirt for me and Josh, and we totally looked like the twins from the Shining the entire night.  I ordered a tutu from eBay for $9.  It was definitely a $9 one at that.

Get yourself a selfie stick, you won't regret it.

J.Crew Hires Mayhem to Create a Collection
You guys remember Mayhem, the little girl who (with her mom) made paper designs of famous gowns and looks worn by celebrities?  Well Jenna Lyons went ahead and hired her to make a collection for J.Crew.  Talk about dreams coming true, and talk about an awesome little girl! I can't wait to see what she comes up with!  #babygenius

Kate Middleton's Side Eye
This made my week.  Girlfriend gets down with the attitude and I love it!

. . . . . . . . . . . . .

This is an awesome list whether you're a mom (for the most part) or just into health or not.  From activity trackers to jam-packed green tea, this list is awesome, holidays or not!

This Parody
 
... of mom's singing Taylor Swift's Blank Space, but about Starbucks and kids, and it just gets it.


That last one has me motivated enough to gather up Greyson and roll out for a Venti!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Shopaholic

I am assuming most of you have gotten all of your holiday shopping done by now, and if you're like me, the all too frequent sales that keep popping up are hard to pass up.  Even if you don't shop (I swear I don't always!) there are so many fun goodies to look at and add to my wishlist!






I'm linking up for Thoughts on Thursday with the fabulous Natalie and Annie!

Have a fabulous day!

Winter Blues

So I am trying to steer away from black, because it's just become an NYC Ninja (Pamela!) problem.  When I avoid black, I just end up in a sea of navy, and you will never hear me complaining about that.  Blues are a winter wardrobe staple.  Also, if you can, get some Tieks, because they are so amazing (thanks for the rec Amanda!)  The vest is not available in navy right now, but there are other colors and they always restock the blue.  It gets me through the in-between weather days, and on days when I feel really bad ass and just don't want to wear my 200 pound puffer coat.

Holidays at Home

Happy Tuesday lovelies!  Today I am linking up with AnnieKatieCait and Lisa and sharing a peek at our holiday decorations!  We accumulated a lot this year (first year in our new house!!) and we have lights, REAL lights outside!  I'm all about a gold, silver and white color scheme with pops of reds.  We let the kids decorate their own tree and choose which ornaments they wanted on their tree and on our big tree.  Even though our main tree is my dream color scheme, I get more happy every time I look at the kids' tree decorated with their little hands, and overflowing with memories.  













I am still working on our mantle and waiting for a set of new stockings (way too exciting!)  Does anyone have any good holiday candle recommendations because I have had no luck finding any delicious ones yet!

Have a fabulous day!

Leopard Love

My name is Lindsay and I am addicted to leopard.  It's a problem, and apparently its getting worse.  I have been wearing this blouse nonstop, like three times the past week.  (eek!)  It is also almost always on crazy sale, so get on the Ann Taylor mailing list asap for serious discounts!  I dress it down with jeans and booties, and up for a night out with black pants and a dressy heel.  Versatile, easy to clean, and wallet-friendly!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday babes!  Today it is all about everything I have been loving this week...

This Book
I'm now reading Shopaholic to the Stars by Sophie Kinsella.  I love it.  I have loved every Shopaholic book, I don't care how cheesy and mindless they are.  I love it even more because it brings me back to LA.  It's a great download (would be even better on the beach!)

. . .

My New Favorite Lamp
Target is killing it with their lamps lately.  I want to buy new ones every time I am in there, and have wasted a solid hour mixing the bases and lamps.  #timesuck #itsawesome  I picked up this base and this shade for our bedroom (times two, of course.) I love them and now I wanted the larger mercury glass bases for our living room.

. . .

I got this in a giveaway I won from Amanda and loved it so much I ordered a second bottle.  This stuff is amazing and I wore it all summer.  It's equally awesome in the winter (a big suprise!) It has a very light scent, it's super light when it goes on and dries right away, BUT it gives great moisture.  It's a little pricey but it literally lasted me months.

. . .

Holiday Cards
I live for family pictures, ordering cards, and addressing, stuffing of the cards annually.  I think getting holiday cards in the mail may be one of the best little highs in life.  The kids and I race to the mailbox every day to check for them and add them to our growing wall of cards!  I am going to try to make a DIY cork holder thing... once I figure out where one buys a yardstick? 

. . .

Elf on the Shelf
I love to hate this thing - he goes by Gingersnap in our house.  Some nights we get an awesome idea and get really into it and other nights are totally half-assed.  I do, however, really love the book. It's just the right length and it's pretty cute.  If you don't feel like dealing with the elf (I can't blame you!) give the book a try!

. . .

Family photos gone wrong
I have looked at this link wayyyy too many times this week purely based on the fact that it makes me laugh until I cry.
