Sugar Rush: Jelly Donut Twirl Skirt (Heart of Haute)

I was TRYING to be good and go on a spending ban after the doozy that is Black Friday happened on top of some good ol' fashioned Christmas gift purchasing, but when I saw this skirt on the Heart of Haute Instagram, I couldn't follow my own rules.

Central Park Winter Print Vivi Dress (LindyBop)

I used to believe I'd be a killer ice skater. I didn't expect to be flipping backward on the ice or anything, but, as a kid, I always fantasized about ice skating and imagined gliding effortlessly across the ice hand in hand with a special someone. Barf, right?

BBRBF Book Club: Swamplandia! by Karen Russell

Picking Swamplandia! as our BBRBF Book Club read this month worked out well. With the cover consisting primarily of red and green, it's the perfect book to review a mere few days before the happiest day on the planet - Christmas! Noelle made the suggestion - was it intentional? We may never know...

Unique Vintage {Light Up} Christmas Tree Skirt

As I started splurging on Holiday themed dresses this season (basically as soon as I was able to), I knew one thing was for sure - I had to photograph at least one of them at a Christmas tree stand.

Read My Lips: Lipstick Skirt Made by Anna!

Some laugh when I gush about the friends I've made via social media in the past few years. Laugh all they want, but I have met some amazing people from communities on Instagram, Facebook Buy/Sell/Trade groups for brands I love like Bernie Dexter, ModCloth, and more, and, of course, through blogging.

I feel like I have my own global Squad. Move over, Taylor Swift. These retro babes are gonna give you a run for your money.

Raspberry Brownie White Chocolate Bark

I was going to share this after the holidays but if you're like me, you enjoy giving edible treats as gifts. I love making unique little treats for grandparents' gifts as they often pull the "I don't want anything besides your love and company" line whenever you ask what they'd like for Christmas. So they get treats, those stubborn grannies and grampies.

Know what makes a great gift? Bark! No, not the sound the puppers make. Noooo, not the stuff that grows on trees. Chocolate bark!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland (Bernie Dexter)

Okay, so it wasn't quite a winter wonderland the day I wore this dress, but we did get our first snow only a few days after so I say it counts! We woke up this past Monday to lovely snowflakes falling from the sky, our yard and driveway covered in the softest blanket of snow.

Ho-Ho-Harley Dress from Pinup Girl Clothing

Now that December is in full swing, don't expect anything but Christmas themed posts from here on out. I might have 1 non-holiday themed post scheduled for the next few weeks, but who am I kidding? I am in full blown Christmas mode and cannot be stopped.

It is my recommendation that, if you are a Grinch, just avoid my blog altogether until December 26th, k?

One Tough {Christmas} Cookie - Modcloth

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I was going to give this post a clever and punny Christmas themed title but decided to go with the idiom "One Tough Cookie" after experiencing something interesting while photographing this outfit.
