Happy, happy Friday! The best day of the week! This weekend is a bit up in the air for us, but we have been battling colds and long nights, and I am hoping to finally have a weekend with some rest. And wine. Definitely some wine. I am already gearing up for next week, because HELLO Thanksgiving! I truly cannot believe how fast this fall has flown by, and we are officially entering the most wonderful time of the year!
1. Fresh Balsam
This is my all time favorite Bath and Body Works holiday scent. You guys, it legitimately smells exactly like a Christmas tree. I grew up with real trees in our house, but am in love with the convenience and control over look and style we get with an artificial tree. Still, I miss that balsam smell. Light up this candle, and you would never know the tree in the corner wasn’t fresh off of the lot. It smells so crisp and nature-y, it is a must have!
2. Simple Cleansing Wipes**
I received these in my latest #cozyvoxbox, and love them! I am a big fan of the Simple line, and these are great for removing makeup, and I also love that I can throw them in my bag if I am ever going somewhere and may need something to wash my face. I absolutely love #influenster and receiving goodies from them every now and again. This box definitely didn’t disappoint, and this was my favorite item!
3. Gap Tunic Tees
I have been on the hunt for a great long sleeve t-shirt. Last year I wore out my maternity ones, and never realized how wonderful a plain white or black long sleeve is. They wear well under vests, jackets, and sweaters, or on their own if you are just lounging around the house. I tried a style from Old Navy, and while it was okay, I wasn’t sold on it, as I was looking for something a bit more fitted, with a more cotton-y material instead of the jersey feel. These are currently on sale, plus an extra 25% off, bringing the price down to around $11! I love the thick cuffs on the bottom, and also think the sideswept seam is a fun little detail. I totally snagged a few in basic colors, because sometimes nothing is more perfect than a cozy white t-shirt.
4. Polar Bear Sweater
I saw this item during the Friends and Family Sale, and I seriously obsessively checked our local Gap Factory daily until they got them in stock. They are totally sold out online, but if you have a factory store in your area, they just got them in recently and likely still have them in stock. The polar bear is actually a soft faux fur, and it is so, SO cute. I got them for both of my boys to wear on Christmas, and I am already just dying to see them rock their matching outfits!
5. Snowman jammies
I am sure everyone is ready for me to shut up about the pajamas already (sorry, the likelihood of that happening is low!) but Jackson has added snowmen to his list of current obsessions, and they rank up there pretty darn close to pumpkins. The other night, I put Lincoln in his snowman jammies, which are the baby style of the toddler jammies Jackson has. Jackson’s were dirty and in the hamper, and when he saw Lincoln wearing what he thought were his jammies, he was not a happy camper. He may have tried to physically rip them off of Lincoln. I scolded myself because I should have known to not put them on Lincoln unless Jackson could wear his too, so I did a rushed load of laundry, and took them out of the dryer still damp so he could wear his matching set. My boys woke up the next morning in the most precious moods, and they cuddled on the couch and let me snap some photos where they both actually smiled! I die every day as I fall more and more in love with my sweet boys.
I am so excited for this weekend, we may be getting our first snowfall of the season! Every year with children it becomes more and more fun to experience things like seasons and holidays through their eyes 🙂 See you all back here next week for a SHORT work week!
