wishing, hoping, and dreaming

There is just something about the holidays that makes everything seem more beautiful and crazy than it is any other time of the year. With all the Christmas parties, wrapping gifts, putting in more hours at work, and very last minute shopping, it is so nice to just be done with school! I had a prof that screwed with her class, a final exam that went missing, and my first A- since first semester. Talk about a roller coaster ride! Now, it is time to get into the Christmas spirit and enjoy the holidays. Yesterday my boyfriend and I decorated his family Christmas tree - a little late, I know! We went out and bought all new decorations and completely revamped the living room with blue and silver. It looked incredible, if I do say so myself! Today we're making a gingerbread house, and tonight I get to see nine of my favourite girls from dance that I only get to see a couple times a year. I'm going to come right out and say it: life is good. So here's what I'm wishing for this year: a dysfunctional mess of Tiffany & Co. mixed with vintage Nancy Drew books. Did you know that I'm trying to collect all 56 originals? Yes, I am a nerd. I hope everyone receives everything on their own wish list this year!

  1. I just bought those Kate Spade rainboots in black and red! They're worth every penny. The sizing does run a little large and I ended up buying insoles to fill up a bit of extra space in the shoes.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Chelle!

  2. I love everything on this list!! I want that book and the sequin beanie is perfectly chic for this terrible weather!!
