C. Wonder is in short, a girl’s dream. I stopped by last night to check out their shopping party event and I fell in love with so many things (I even had to edit my Christmas wish list to include a couple of the items I saw in the store!). From monogrammed bags to kitchen accessories, this store had it all. My personal favorite was the home area, which is lined by colorful initial plates, gilded glasses, and cheerful accent pillows. I purchased a small plate with my initial and I am planning on getting some lucite letters for my home office.

office space

December is here and with it, office holiday parties. Love them or hate them, I find them a good excuse to get to know my colleagues better and interact with them outside work. That being said, I always find that it is still important to behave professionally and to dress appropriately for the party (every office has a crazy holiday party story, try to avoid being in it). Although the party attire depends on the venue and your office culture, I usually find it best to overdress than underdress. That is why I came up with a few different attire ideas that would work well in different environments.

Oh, What Fun

As the holidays approach, the usual weekend sleepiness gets replaced with constant hustle and bustle. Christmas shopping, decorating the house for visiting guests, and trying to squeeze in some family time, take priority during these weeks. I absolutely love the frenzied atmosphere that the holidays bring, and luckily, I have found a vast array of activities in Atlanta to take part in.

Holiday Mixtape

So as part of my 31 things to do before December 31st, I made a new holiday playlist on Spotifiy. I really enjoyed going through all of the Christmas songs and picking out the ones that I think would be best for my holiday party. Memorable mentions go to She & Him’s “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, John Lennon’s “Happy Xmas”, and Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime”.

Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies

I finally got around to baking this weekend. I wasn’t sure what to start with, but thankfully I stumbled upon this lovely baking kit and decided to make brown sugar shortbread cookies. Not only were most of the ingredients included inside, but this pretty box is great for kitchen odds and ends.
