Happy weekend! It is insane to me how quickly December is flying by. It’s been a crazy month already and it’s not going to slow down at all between now and January. This weekend, I had dinner with my boyfriend’s parents Friday night and for the rest of the weekend I have two blog events, two holiday parties, and a friend’s birthday brunch to attend. Next week is THE week of work holiday parties (three of them), then my holiday party, then off to New York for another weekend. After that, it’s the last week of work before Christmas – then to Virginia for Christmas, Kentucky the week after Christmas, back in Philly for New Year’s Eve, and then back to New York on January 1st. Oh and at some point I have to finish grad school in the next week or so. Basically, I’m all over the place right now.
But that doesn’t stop me from having a weekly roundup of things to share!
I finally decorated my Christmas tree this week! I ordered the ornaments pictured above from Amazon and they are perfect. The look great and also are pretty much unbreakable. I dropped several…many times…and they just bounced right across the floor. There are a ton of different colors and two different size options to choose from.
Have you seen this tour of Jenna Lyons’s home? I’m obsessed.
Earlier in the week, I stumbled upon these amazing glitter loafers from Sole Society. I wasn’t sure if I really needed them until I found them for a way better price on the QVC website! I bought a silver pair and can’t wait to rock these for the rest of the holiday season.
Currently eyeing this Rebecca Minkoff velvet crossbody while it’s on sale…
Out of all the gift guides I’ve seen this season, Grace’s gift guide “for the person who hated 2017” is hands down my favorite.
I’m dying to check Suraya, the new Middle Eastern market and cafe in Fishtown. The food and the space look absolutely amazing.
TIME’s Person of the Year. Enough said.
For my next big DIY project, I’m thinking about making a tufted headboard (like this one but with black velvet fabric). If you know of any good tutorials, PLEASE send my way. I think it’s doable. We’ll see.
Have you checked out your Spotify 2017 Wrapped? I have been looking forward to getting my top songs of the year playlist for months. Here’s mine if you want to check it out! According to Spotify, I listened to 25,811 minutes of music this year.
