Holiday Survival Kit

With the holidays right around the corner, I'm already plotting my stress-free plan to make it through the season the best way possible! We're in the home stretch to Thanksgiving and I could not be more excited to get the holiday season rolling! I'm spending Thanksgiving in St. Louis this year with my mom's side of the family, and I'm very excited to see my cousins and do some damage on Friday at the shops.

Starbucks Caramel Brulee lattes have got to be my favorite holiday drink. I tried their new option, the Chestnut Praline, but I just wasn't a fan. However, the caramel brulee is a slight addiction! It's sweet but not too overpowering and it actually tastes like a latte rather than pure coffee or pure sugary syrup!

Hands down the best Christmas music, in my opinion, is by Frank Sinatra and Mariah Carey!! I've been trying to hold back until after Thanksgiving to switch over to the holiday stations, but I've definitely cracked a few times. It's so hard when Christmas and Thanksgiving are so close this year!

Staying warm and staying stylish... My priorities every season!! I have a small collection of pom-pom hats (#noshame) and I'm totally obsessed with this cute one!

Every season my favorite Christmas movie is The Polar Express! I watch it each year at least a few times and it never gets old. 

Ahh, my LL Bean boots are a lifesaver! I wear them all the time and they are the most practical boots for the snowy Wisconsin winters I have to deal with!! They are so warm and comfy, in addition to the fact that no water is getting inside!

Fun fact: I love pie! I can't even choose between pumpkin, pecan, and cherry. I'm kind of obsessed...

Nothing screams holiday season more than festive PJ's to cozy up in every night!!

Happy holidays!

  1. Those PJ's look so comfy and cozy, perfect for a night of cuddling up on the couch with a latte & some pie...while watching the Polar Express ;)

  2. If I liked caramel I would probably like the caramel brulee one! I'm all about the chesnut praline! Frank Sinatra is a favorite of mine (he was my grandpa's too, he just passed away so listening to him makes me feel a little closer). Warm and stylish is the hardest thing to do but it's do-able! Love your survival kit!
