I don’t know why, but I feel like I look a bit like a French school girl in this outfit. This is probably nothing like what French school girls actually wear, but in my head, this is how one might dress. Can anyone confirm or deny?
Today is my last day in California and tonight I’ll be buckled up on a plane for a red-eye flight back home. It’s been really, really great to spend time with my family this past week and a half, but I’m also looking forward to getting back to my cozy little bedroom in NYC. It’s always nice to have some down time in the city. I don’t go back to work until the 5th, so I get to enjoy being on vacation for one more glorious week.
Do you have any fun NYE plans? I think I’m going to do dinner with some friends, then head over to another friend’s apartment for a party. While I was in California, I picked up a sparkly top to wear on Wednesday and I’m still deciding what I want to do with my makeup. I’m trying to get back to the regular schedule this week, so check back soon for some reflections on 2014 and resolutions for 2015!

It’s starting to hit me that I’m heading home to California soon (one week from tomorrow to be exact!). I’ve been trying to hang out with my friends one last time before I leave for the holidays and yesterday I hopped on the train to Brooklyn. In honor of her birthday and the holidays, my friend hosted a tree-trimming gathering at her apartment. As always, there were plenty of yummy snacks and good company.
I’ve got a little bit over a week to sort out my business before I fly home. I’d like to check more people off my Christmas card list, pick up a few more Christmas presents, and deliver presents to local friends before I leave. I also have another tree-trimming party to go to next weekend. This time of year is so busy busy busy, but it’s all fun stuff, so I don’t mind!

It’s my favorite time of year- the holiday season! Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, I can officially get into the holiday spirit. Every year, I look forward to the parties and gatherings that happen around this time of year. Sadly, this year I’ll be missing a couple of work parties because I’m heading back to CA, but I am planning to go to my friend’s tree-trimming party this month. I wanted to round up a few dress ideas for those who’ve also got a few holiday parties on their calendar this month.
Did you all have a nice weekend? I had a very relaxing weekend- it was wonderful. I didn’t really do much of anything but it was so nice to have some alone time and just hibernate a bit. I watched a lot of TV/movies, put up some twinkle lights, made an apple pie, started working on my Christmas card list, and did a bit of reading. It felt like a taste of the Christmas break that’s coming up. Just another 2.5 weeks to get through!
Tell me: Are you hosting a holiday party this year or do you plan to attend one?

A couple of weeks ago, I shared my beauty wish list and today I have several more beauty-related gift ideas. Many of these are also on my list (you know the nail polish addict in me is heart-eyed over that Formula X set) or items that I think would make good gifts for people in my life. I also love the idea of the Sephora Favorites sets that were released for the holidays because you get to sample a bunch of great brands at a fraction of the price.
Speaking of shopping, who’s gearing up for Black Friday? I don’t plan to go to any stores (it’s way too crazy out there for me), but I will be browsing the deals online and possibly sharing some of favorite deals on twitter. I’m hoping that I can order a few things and knock a couple of gifts of my Christmas shopping list.
To those who celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and good luck to all the Black Friday shoppers. I’ll see you guys back here next week!
