Christmas Aftermath

The week before Christmas the hubs, some friends and I embarked on an adventure to watch the new Star Wars, which was AMAZING! [Don't worry I won't spoil it for you]. Also my husband now wants a BB8... I'm not surprised.

This tunic/dress is a new favorite, and oh so comfortable. The color reminds me of Rey's outfit in Star Wars. The necklace is a new addition to the necklace quiver and dresses up this long tee-dress so well.

So I'm writing this post on the Christmas aftermath, while sipping on some freshly brewed coffee from my new chemex. Thank you grandma! It tastes like coffee in heaven.


We had a lovely Christmas and a beautiful Christmas' Eve at my church. I had the privilege of using the chalk writing skills I've used in so many Christmas presents for the stage's backdrop this year. It really came out beautifully (not bias at all). But most importantly it was a beautiful service, singing in unison with our brothers and sisters in Christ, celebrating Jesus's birth.

May the force be with you.

jeans + top: Free People | boots: Madewell 

A simple outfit for a busy week. I love the neck detail of this Free People top. I bought it at regular price but as always, I'm in the lookout for sales. The week after I bought it, the top had a 50% off discount, so of course I requested and GOT a price adjustment. Go me!

'Tis the week before Christmas, and the house is fully decorated. Wrapping paper has once again taken over the dining room table, making me reconsider having a special space for that next year. But our pine tree smells amazing, there's string of lights everywhere and stashed hot chocolate in the pantry.
Chris and I sent out our first Christmas cards this year and we LOVED how they turned out. Artifact Uprising makes some rad cards.


 P.S. BTW, who is excited for STAR WARS tonight!?... May the force be with you!

Nordic vibes

When I came across this fur collar sweater I could not resist. I knew it would be a piece that I will wear a lot, even though I live in one of the hottest States in the US. 
I love fur and anything nordic, not only when it comes to clothes but also home decor. My husband used to tell me "Stop trying to decorate our house with dead animals" But now it has definitely grown on him.. Antlers on tables, sheep rugs, antlers on walls, and soon there will be fur throws, cowhide rugs and fur pillows. I just love them nordic vibes. 
I swear, I belong up north. 

December is finally here, and it better slow down. Don't you wish every month was December?
