Favorite Finds Part 1

It's the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas is here- ahhhhh!  I'm filled with excitement and then dread.  Every year I want to give the perfect gift, and every year I run out of time and end up just getting something that's available. Then there's the dreaded question, at least for me, what do I want for Christmas. I love lots of things, but in that very instant I am asked I can't remember anything I want.  For this reason, I thought it would be fun to take little snapshots around town while I'm out shopping and share them.  Because, I know not everyone has the time or desire to shop to the extent that I do- ha!

I'm nuts over these Twisted Gold Tumblers.  Just imagine how fun it would be to have friends over for cocktails or dinner and use these glasses.  They're so luxurious (as Martin Bullard says) and regal looking!  Heck, I'd even drink my coke out of these. Who says it has to be saved for a cocktail?  

What can I say, I love necklaces.  I want this necklace really bad!

Look how great it looks with a t-shirt. 

  These straws are the perfect hostess gift! Please have me over to your party, so I can give them to you! The only catch is that I might make you give me one to drink from all night.  

Ok, I might be giving these to everyone for any celebration!  This is how much I love them.

This is the ultimate girly gift.  If you are like me, you have a bar of soap in your lingerie drawer that has completely lost it's fragrance leaving your bras smelling like the mexican food restaurant you ate at last night.  These wax tablets (bhldn-in store) are AMAZING.  They are so fragrant, way more fragrant than any bar of soap, and not to mention pretty.  I think I've just convinced myself to buy one right now- ha! 

A mug for your besties, who need coffee as much as you do in the morning.

These hairbands won't kink your hair.  I borrowed one from my sister-in-law to test it out (thanks Mallory).  Consider it tested.  I want a pack or two.  The perfect gift, because who wants to pay $12 for a hair band?

The perfect gift for the newly engaged or bride to be. Engraved forks on the cake table at the wedding- what a cute photo op. I love gifts that celebrate such a fun time in life!  

Where were these shoes when I got married?!?!   

If this dress was on sale and if I had somewhere to wear it, I would buy it in a heartbeat.  I guess this isn't technically a gift, but I had to include it in case any of you have an occasion for this dress.  Buy it and send me a picture of you wearing it- I would love it! It would make my year! 

I'm a very happily married women.  I just love this dress and I just had to show it to you all.  I don't think I'm the only one who says to herself, if I could go back and do it again, I'd wear THIS dress.


  1. Girl, I LOOOOOVE this post!!! You have gorgeous taste and style. Next visit to Houston, we must go shopping and have coffee together!
    ps-those tumblers are gorgeous!!

  2. Great ideas. Are the wax tablets from Anthropologie?

  3. I think you just need to gift the peach dress to yourself and then post it here for us to see how you style it, please!!!! I want everything on this list!!

  4. First off, I'm thinking you should renew your vows just so you can wear that dress. Secondly, you NEED that Anthrolpologie necklace.

  5. I too love shopping more than anyone I know. These are great :)
