1. DIY Desk Organizer

For all of us that have an ::ahem:: love of writing instruments, it can tend to get out of hand. Case in point: I am currently looking at about 15 pens and pencils cluttering my supposed dining room table centerpiece tray. That is definitely not where they belong, and it is flat out embarrassing. That’s why I love this super easy DIY consisting of toilet paper rolls and an old shoe box. Hello! Adorable pen/pencil/marker holder that will no longer leave you ashamed in no time!

1. Trina Turk for Banana Republic

I spotted this awesome collection thanks to the dear Rosy of Accidental Sexiness! It’s so beautiful, fun and summer! My favorites are the assymetrical bold print dress to the left & the white crisp blouse paired with the black and white pencil skirt. Can you say gorgeous?? It’s the perfect ensemble for those lazy summer days strolling on Lincoln Road. Summer dreamin’ for real.

1. Sequin Scarf

One thing I absolutely love about the holiday season is the ability to wear sparkles and sequins with reckless abandon. Granted, in my world, it would be year round, but in an attempt not to be greedy, I’ll take what I can get. Although I don’t tend to have events worthy of all those glorious sequined dresses, I can totally justify the purchase of this fabulous sequined scarf. I think it would compliment a casual Christmas lunch or dinner outfit perfectly!

Magical Moments Monday

November 28th, 2011 | Posted in Home, Personal by Meli

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend with your nearest and dearest! It always goes a little too fast, huh? Here were our highlights:

x. Really delicious Thanksgiving dinner
x. Sharing stories and pictures from our trip with family and friends
x. Chatter about starting to test drive cars (!!!)
x. Starting new photo traditions, namely, a picture at each anniversary
x. Putting together a video of our amazing vacation
x. Putting up our fun & kitschy tree and other Christmas decorations
x. Attempting to listen to Christmas music and failing (it makes me angry for some reason), eventually reverting to the Nightmare Before Christmas OST
x. Seeing my hubby happy: He finally got an iPhone 4s!
x. Having a girls nite with my sister
x. Starting some fun Christmas-themed DIY projects like this cute tinsel wreath:

Have you started to decorate for the holidays?
