What I'm Loving in December 2015

12/16/2015

Happy Holidays! See my favorite December picks, including monogrammed ornaments for 40% off; Coquito flavored eggnog; the best holiday party dresses for New Year's; my new-found love of Jessica Jones and a couple more goodies I know you'll love this month!
Back in November, the Marvel show Jessica Jones hit Netflix. I was too busy traveling and such to watch it last month, but fortunately, I was able to get my binge on this past weekend and watched all 13 episodes. The show is based on the Marvel comic of the same name and is set in the same location as that other great superhero Netflix show, Daredevil. The first couple of episodes were a little slow for me, but by episode five I was all in. It's great to see a real superhero show with a real female lead. Have you seen Jessica Jones?

This weekend, I was finally able to get my gifting (and my holiday cards) done. One thing that always puts me in the gift giving mood is fun wrapping paper like this awesome splatter paper. You can shop this gift wrap paper and even holiday gift bags (for the gifts you just can't wrap) right on Shopbop!

If you're looking for a last-minute gift for a best friend, sister, mother or holiday hostess, then you have to check out these Dogeared holiday pouches from Shopbop. They have various options, but the holiday selection is particularly awesome, including the Naughty, Nice, Other pouch, which is my favorite!

From Thanksgiving to New Year's, eggnog is the seasonal drink of choice. What I love about it is that there are so many options for flavored eggnog these days. If you're health-conscious, you can make egg-less nog or sugar-free eggnog. Other holiday favorites include peppermint eggnog and a Coquito (a coconut eggnog made with spices and white rum). December 24 is National Eggnog Day, so tell me, are you a fan?

I'm still working out the kinks for my New Year's plans, but I already have my eyes on these beautiful holiday party dresses for New Year's from Shopbop. These night out dresses really make me want to party with the best of them some place warm! It's the perfect time for something with a little sparkle or flirtatious lace. What do you plan on wearing for your upcoming holiday festivities?

If you're a liker of pretty little things, then I think you'll love these monogram ball ornaments from Nordstrom. They're obviously great for decorating your tree, but can also be used for fun flat lays (all you Instagrammers know what I mean). I think I'll get a "MUSE" set, and you should get a few as well, especially since each ball ornament is so inexpensive at 40% off!

  6. I binge-watched all 13 episodes of Jessica Jones very shortly after it premiered. I love shows that feature a strong female lead. The gift wrapping paper and holiday pouches both look cute and the night out dresses at shopbop look lovely.
