52 Days Until Christmas…Go!

xmas12132013-1

Aren’t these sorts of displays just beautiful? I can’t help but feel even more festive looking at them…

Hi everyone! I’m feeling especially cheerful today…or should I say festive? With Halloween over (And it was a fun night…all those fun costumes! And the candy…can’t forget the candy), Christmas preparations are officially a go.

The displays, the lists, the shopping trips…I’m so excited already. Shopping for gifts is always a difficult task (Getting that ‘perfect gift’ can be a bit of a pain sometimes), but it still makes me happy at the end of the day. Then comes wrapping, and of course stopping by somewhere for some hot chocolate, taking pictures of the pretty snow scene…I feel like I’m describing something very clichéd. I probably am. But whatever…I’m sure I’m not the only one out there.

Oh…and I have another reason to come up with some more nail art! This is going to be great…I’m really starting to get into the Christmas spirit. Can’t you tell?

Anyways, I hope at least a few of you out there know what I’m talking about…

Haul Excitement~

0011676

Hi everyone! So…some of you guys might know what I’m talking about here, and some other people might just think I’m a little crazy or something.

What I’m talking about is that feeling of anticipation when you’re about to order a haul (Or min-haul, like in my case), and while you’re waiting for the package to get here so that you can finally get your hands on those products you’ve been eyeing!

But maybe I’m just a little crazy and easily excitable, I don’t know.

Anyways, I just placed my order for a few products (To change up my winter skincare, and also to replace a few old products that aren’t as effective anymore) and I already can’t wait for my package to arrive.

Strangely enough, my packages always seem to arrive when I’ve placed them on the back burners and have almost forgotten about them…basically, they’re always a nice little surprise to receive in the mail because I always seem to get them when I don’t expect them.

They’re sort of like little presents…from me to me. But hey, a nice little surprise in the mail is always appreciated. And so is the opportunity to try new products…samples are always nice, right?

Soon it’ll be time to browse sites looking for the perfect presents…and, like last December, a bunch of boxes will be arriving in my mail then!

Sweater Weather

So it’s been getting chillier lately (But at least the weather’s been nice and sunny), and it feels like it’s pretty much time to break out the sweaters. As much as I’ll miss my graphic tees and flowy tops (And trust me, they will be missed), I’m a little excited to start wearing sweaters.

Warm and comfy, and they’re a sign of how close we’re getting to real winter weather…which is really exciting (At least, for me…I know quite a few people who would disagree)! All the possible snowfall, and just sitting around sipping hot chocolate…even the thought makes me happy.

I bought a few new sweaters during sales in the summer, and I’m happy that I’ll finally be able to wear them out and show them off. Plus, all those cardigans and blazers that have been buried in the bottom of my closet have finally been being put to use this past little while.

The change is nice…and, next year, I’ll feel the same sense of excitement when unpacking my summer clothes and anticipating being able to wear my chiffon tops once again.

For now, though, I’m content with the prospect of soon being able to snuggle up in a cozy sweater indoors with a nice mug of hot chocolate, looking out at the snowy scene outside…that sounds so incredibly clichéd, but hey…it does sound nice, doesn’t it?

Side Note: I’ve only recently discovered that this was an actual song…and by recently, I mean just now when I was trying to look for a picture to put on this post and searched up ‘Sweater Weather’ and got pictures and videos of this band. Well…you learn something new everyday, I guess.
