Favorite Things

With the holidays upon us, I am so excited to join with a few of my Favorite Bloggers that I have personally been following for years!  I am really looking forward to sharing a handful of my favorite things - some items I use year-long, while others I look forward to buying for the Holidays to make it extra special!!!

So let's get started!
Here is my list of FAVORITE THINGS:

This pressed-powder foundation is a MUST in my makeup bag. On crazy days, I like to use a tinted moisturizer and top it with this tarte product and then I head out the door! You HAVE to try it!

I can't even start to explain how much I love this!  Micro-needling is all the rage, and I must confess I love to get it done every once in a while:) But to save on my pocket book, this tool is so AMAZING!!!  Gentle but affective between professional sessions. My skin honestly glows after each use. LOVE!!!

Ok ladies... I have pretty much tried every mascara on the market. Like no joke! I keep going back to a classic! Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara! I love to layer it with other mascaras to add to the volume! 
For sure a FAVORITE of mine!!!

If you know me, you'll know how much I LOVE to decorate with lots of pillows. 
H&M Home is always my first stop!  With pillows starting at $5.99 you can't go wrong! 

Christmas Tree 2017

I am thrilled to be teaming up with Treetopia Today! As most of you know, Christmas is definitely a Favorite around here. This Year, Christmas is going to be a bit different for us. Instead of a full home to decorate, we are decking the halls in a smaller space. This past summer, we sold our beautiful home of 11 years.  We plan to start building our new home this coming spring!  We are pretty excited to be moving forward on home that we hope to be in a very long time!

In the meantime, we were blessed enough to find a super cute and extremely nice rental home.  The front room is small, but so cozy.  We had just enough space in the corner, between the sofa and TV armoire for the Slim Cut Tree from Treetopia. There is just enough space in the front room to gather around the tree and watch a Christmas Hallmark show as a family:)  

Today, I am excited to share my Christmas Tree! I wanted to try a new look and color scheme that I haven't ever tried before. Being in a rental, the majority of my Christmas decor is all boxed away, so I thought it would be fun to take the opportunity to let my creative juices fly.  I picked the colors aqua and red for a fun vintage Christmas theme. I have to say I LOVE IT!!!  I only had a few Christmas items to work with, that weren't boxed up, but I somehow managed to create a really fun tree that my entire family is thrilled with! 
I only had to purchase a few "new" items, which were very affordable: a few aqua colored ball ornaments, Making Spirits Bright signs from Michaels 50% off sale, and a spool of ribbon I found in the clearance section.

ok...Let's now talk about this AMAZING Flocked Tree! When I saw this online I instantly fell in love! This tree is 100% white flocked. A lot of flocked trees have a bit of green showing through on the branches, but this one is PURE white and I LOVE it!!!

Here is the Tree in all its Christmas Glory.
