Weekend happenings//


+ Jack is my go-to mug for the season                        + The Queen Mary at night

+ As a belated birthday surprise, a friend took me to the CHILL event in Long Beach. It was set up in a really cute Christmas-y village, but the ice sculptures stored in a walk-through 12* (TWELVE degrees!) dome are the main attraction.

+ I got together with a few girlfriends, and we headed down south to Newport for the Christmas Boat Parade Cruise. Balboa Island is a little slice of heaven, and I love seeing all the homes done up for Christmas. The closer it gets to Christmas, the more decorated the harbor becomes, so do check it out if you can.

Weekend happenings//


+ I wish this was my weekend. The “Whatever” art and tossed comforter speak to my energy level perfectly right now. In fact, I can’t tell you how many grammatical errors I found when I reviewed this draft; it’s that kinda week.

Other notes//

+ I attended a murder mystery party on Saturday for a birthday, which is always fun. If you’ve never done one, I highly suggest it. Unfortunately, I was the killer, which was a bit of a bummer, but it’s really fun to figure it out and go through the investigation. We did this one.

+ Christmas is just about in full swing here. We picked out a Christmas tree, and I’ve watched a handful of holiday films over the weekend. Just need to get busy with the present part…

+ Did you pick up any of the Target + Neiman Marcus product? Like a c̶r̶a̶z̶y̶ excited person, I ordered the Derek Lam skateboard [as promised] at the midnight release. I also nabbed the rag & bone boys sweater when I saw it in stores.
