My Favorite Things: 25 Days of Christmas

1 Dec

I have already made it perfectly clear that I am a major Christmas dork, so I am more than excited that today is the 1st of December. Why? ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas beings today! I can now turn on my tv at any given moment and be greeted with the sweet sounds of Christmas carols, sappy movies, and childhood memories.


Here are my top-ten favorite movies EVER.

The Muppet Christmas Carol

Muppets who sing, what could be better? Michael Cane is perfect in this movie and I cry ever time.

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer (claymation version)

A childhood classic. This movie has everything an elf with aspiring dentist dreams, misfit toys (the ones the out-of-town relatives give you), and of course Rudolph!

The Santa Clause Trilogy

So good! He takes his kid to Denny’s for Christmas dinner! That’s awesome.

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

Squirrel in tree, sewer blows up, cat gets electrocuted. Watch it now. It’s like SNL on crack.

White Christmas

Bing Crosby, enough said.

Holiday Inn

Bing Crosby + Fred Astaire, stop it I’m dying.

A Christmas Story

When my brother received a BB gun for Xmas one year all I could think of was “You’ll shoot yer’ eye out!” He didn’t….

Miracle on 34th Street (Matilda version)

She is just such a cupcake, and Dylan McDermott makes an appearance. Uhm, yes please.

The Polar Express

Tom Hanks never fails to impress. This is one of THE BEST Christmas morning movies ever.


Funny. I can’t explain it. Just go watch.

My Favorite Things: Christmas Songs

26 Nov

It’s after Thanksgiving and that means it is officially socially acceptable to blast Christmas music. No more hiding alone in my room, and no more stares from weirded out’s not October anymore! Bring it on Pandora. After visiting Bronner’s (A CHRISTmas Wonderland), I was more than inspired by the mounds of red/gold decor and thousands of hand painted ornaments to fully get into the holiday spirit; so I made a Christmas playlist for all.


Top 10 Favorite Christmas Songs Ever:

  1. Last Christmas– Glee Version (Rachel Berry/Finn Hudson)
  2. White Christmas– Bing Crosby
  3. Santa Baby– Eartha Kitt
  4. Grown-up Christmas List– Michael Buble
  5. It Happened in Sun Valley– Glenn Miller
  6. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus– The Jackson 5
  7. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas– Frank Sinatra
  8. All I Want for Christmas is You– Mariah Carey
  9. Marshmallow World– Johnny Mathis
  10. Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree– Brenda Lee

My Favorite Things: Wish List 2011

14 Nov

*Disclaimer: This is just a “wish list” of anything/everything that catches my eye. I am most excited to just go home and be with my family for the holidays. Bring on the eggnog and elastic waist pants.*

I have a gift for falling for literally the most expensive items while online/in store shopping. I just can’t help it. I almost never bother to look at the price, which results in being one of those people who will bring up said items to the register only to nearly pass when they are done ringing me up. Then comes the part where I proceed to try to figure out which purchase to put back, and after ten minutes of pro’s/con’s I ultimately decide to buy everything. Cue the immense guilt and avoiding the inevitable bank statement.

Cheers to unrealistic expectations and champagne taste on a beer diet!

Here is some of my “wishful” thinking:

I am dying for the wine color.


Lululemon Wunder Under Pant in Black


Henri Bendel Socialite Pearl Necklace


Anything cozy from JCrew


Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb


Urban Outfitters Opaque Tights


Topshop Military Belted Coat


What are you wishing for this year?
