Handmade Holidays: For the Romantic

Handmade Holidays

Welcome to another edition of Handmade Holidays! This set is dedicated to the romantic, the dreamer who lives among the clouds. Soft textures, feminine details, gauzy lace- all of these things are sure to delight the romantic!

1. Ballerina Pink Bow Belt– Umm, how adorably perfect is this belt?! *swoon*
2. Paris Necklace Eiffel Tower Charm– I would say that ‘romantic’ accurately describes Paris, the city of love!
3. Silk Scarf in Silver Grey– This silky scarf has such a lovely pattern.
4. The Collar Necklace– A delightful twist on the peter pan collar and this way you can add a collar to any outfit!
5. Quaint Romantic Floral Garden Dress– The sweetest floral print- I wish I had a garden party to wear this to.
6. Hunter Green Necklace White Vintage Lace– This necklace has a lovely vintage feel with the pretty lace set against a deep green background.
7. Burgundy Felt Flower Dahlia Brooch– This brooch is an easy way to give that special festive touch!
8. Dreamy Early Grey Chiffon Dress– A perfectly delicate and floaty chiffon dress.

I hope your enjoying these picks and that they’re getting your wheels turning for potential gifts this season! If you have any particular theme you like me to tackle for Handmade Holidays, just let me know in the comments below! :)

On Nnenna’s Nails #1: A Round-Up!

Nails Collage 1

Well here we are!  You guys seemed to like the idea of a weekly post featuring my manicures, so I thought I would kick us off with a round-up of all the styles I’ve tried since my last post.  Tell me: Which of these is your favorite?

Also, with the surprising news that Google will be shutting down Google Friend Connect, I want to make sure you guys don’t get lost in the shuffle!  There are many ways to stay connected to my blog: you can follow me on Bloglovin’, subscribe to my RSS Feed, or follow me on Google+ where I share all of my favorite finds on the web.  There’s also Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest to boot!  If you use any or all of these platforms, leave me a link or let me know your username in the comments below- I want to connect with you too! =)

For those who celebrate, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving this past week!  I certainly did :)  I spent Thanksgiving with my college roommate, which became a tradition when I was still in school and didn’t have a long enough break to fly all the way home for Thanksgiving.  We made a duck for the first time, in addition to the usual Thanksgiving fare, as well as three apple pies!  What can I say, they’re my favorite!

Last but not least, today is the last day you can take 25% off anything in my shop with the code SCSHOLIDAY and I’m offering free gift wrapping for the holidays too!  Happy shopping and check back on Wednesday for another edition of Handmade Holidays! =)
