1. Is your holiday mantel as fluffed-up as you’d like it to be? If you’d like some inspiration, be sure to check out these 20 Christmas Mantel Decor Ideas!

2. AMAZON PICKS: here are this week’s favorites from Amazon.

3. THIS WEEK ON THE BLOG I shared this Christmas Living Room Decorated with Holiday Metallics, this Elegant Christmas Table Setting, these Simple and Pretty Christmas Decorations for the Bathroom, and how to Use Greenery and Organics in Your Christmas Decor.

4. If you’re done with your holiday decorating and beginning to think ahead, or you simply can’t get enough of a French-inspired look, you’ll love The Ultimate Guide to French Country Decor Essentials.




8. FASHION PICKS: Let’s talk sweaters. I’m all about soft cashmere in the winter including this lovely V-neck (the best price and comes in a range of colors), this wonderful crew neck (great quality and lush relaxed fit) and this fabulously luxurious turtleneck. I know the last one is pricey and not the sweater you’re going to get in every color, but maybe splurge for just one? This is the sweater you’re going to wear over and over…

9. WHAT’S INSPIRING ME AROUND THE WEB: This beautiful bathroom would be stunning without any holiday decor, but with these subtle seasonal touches it’s even more gorgeous. I’m loving these charming organic touches in this wonderful laundry room. I might actually enjoy doing laundry in a room like that. This exquisite entryway dressed for Christmas.

10. UP NEXT: Transitioning to winter decor after Christmas…

1.) If you are wishing that a little elf would stop by and wrap all of your Christmas presents, I’m afraid I can’t help you! But I do have a collection of tips and ideas to make the job easier. I’m featuring my favorite wrapping paper, boxes, ribbon, and more.

2.) If you have been wishing for a way to add some charm to your Christmas holiday, I’m here to help. A warm mug of hot chocolate is not just delicious, it’s soothing and cozy. And it’s even cozier when it’s served in a fun Santa mug! This recipe is super easy and can be made in a slow cooker, so once it’s mixed up, there’s nothing more to do. Enjoy!

3.) HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY #3: head over to my Instagram account to enter my third holiday giveaway. All the entry information is available in my stories. (Once you are on my profile page, just tap my round picture in the upper left corner to see my stories.) This week I’m giving away a set of the Santa mugs featured in my hot chocolate post! (If there’s enough interest, I just might give away two sets!)

These leather booties look great with leggings, and these Chelsea rain boots are perfect for wet, chilly weather. (And are surprisingly comfortable.) I also love these Clarks ankle boots…and I think the fur trim is super cute.
