Tis the Season

It's CHRISTMAS!!! I'm sorry, I love this time of year! My favorite season is fall, but my favorite time of year is the holiday season. I love how full my calendar gets with plans, dinners, and cocktail outings. I love all the twinkling lights, the oh so yummy hot chocolate at the turn of every corner, the Christmas shopping for those dearest to me, and the spirit around us all.

Don't get me wrong, it's a busy time of year, and if we lose sight of what this time of year is really all about, we're one bah humbug away from being a Scrooge. So, I keep myself in check, keep the pocketbook in check, and cruise through the season with my candy cane hot chocolate.

This season was meant for red lipstick. ALL. THE. TIME! I won't apologize and I won't stop wearing it all month long. My favorites are Heat Wave, Cardinal Red, and Core Cora. My skintone doesn't play well with red shirts, dresses or anything like that (sadly), so I mix in red where it's not too close to my face. So, lipstick, shoes, and handbags are fair game.
The day after Christmas means the Jingle Juice travel mug comes out. I love the festiveness of this mug on a holiday outing or a random Monday drive to the office. Either way, you can't help but crank up you N*SYNC Christmas album and sip your hot treat with a smile on your face.

Mount Dora truly comes alive during the holiday season. I love meandering the streets at night, with all the lights turned on, and no agenda other than to "stop and smell the roses." It's so magical and spectacular and mesmerizing.
