My Favorite Things: Eats

6 Nov

It’s November, and while this means the normal “November-like” activities such as Thanksgiving, black friday shopping, and my classes coming to an end; it also marks a very exciting event. CHRISTMAS! I have been sneakily listen to X-mas music since the beginning of October, but now I feel as if it is a little more socially acceptable to prance around while Eartha Kitt’s version of Santa Baby blares from my iPod.

In spirit of my favorite holiday I will be writing a “favorite things” post each week leading up to Christmas. Yay!

This week’s post will focus on food; because what’s more exciting than eating your body weight in candy canes and eggnog? Nothing. Here are some of my favorite eats.

Luna Bar Peppermint Stick

Food Accessories:

Starbucks Annual Holiday Cups


Pottery Barn Santa Mugs- $34
