Happy Merry Christmas Eve Eve! 😉

Thank god it’s Friday too! I hope everyone has healthy and happy holidays!! Here are my favorites from this week:

Girlfriend’s Christmas Party

Christmas Sangria

Chicken Parm

I love this time of year when you can gather with friends you haven’t seen in awhile and catch up over yummy food and wine 🙂 I hosted a Christmas party for my high school girlfriends this week and it still amazes me that 10 years later we still have a beautiful bond.

What’s Up Wednesday

Every month this link up is a favorite. If you want to see what I’ve been up too in depth, check out What’s Up Wednesday!

Special Birthdays

So many joyous occasions!! It was a weekend full of birthday milestones 🙂

Winter Street

I love this series so much! Reading by the Christmas tree has been a huge favorite this week. I’m putting visiting Nantucket for Winter Stroll weekend on my 2017 goals 🙂

Holiday Make Up

BiteBeauty is always a favorite for me. I’m a huge lipstick lover and wear it almost every day. I love putting on bright colors to liven up my skin tone, especially this time of year. Their holiday set is so fun this year with some sheen over the standard colors.

Smashbox Light Up Palettes

After my lips, I focus on my eyes, especially for all of the holiday parties I’ve had this month. These palettes give me a lot of options to play up my eyes and lips. I love playing with holiday make up this time of year.

That’s it for me this week! I’ll be back on Wednesday with a wrap up of my December Goals!

Have a Merry Christmas friends 🙂
