Holiday Favorites!

Christmas is just around the corner, and I have finally bought my gifts and set up my apartment for the holidays! To be honest, I'm usually kind of the "scrooge" of my family. I dislike Christmas music until at least December, and I think most Christmas movies are extremely cheesy.  But this year something changed, maybe it's the fact that I have my own place, or that I'm married this time around. Either way I'm getting in the Christmas spirit and I'm here to tell you about my favorite Items for the season!

The Marshmallow Fireside Candle- First let me start off by saying, I am REALLY picky when it comes to smells. Every time I go candle shopping I am drawn to the more musky, manly scents or the food-like smells such as: Vanilla, Pumpkin, Caramel. My Husband hates the food smells though, so this makes candle shopping a bit difficult. This candle from Bath and Body Works is my all time favorite for the holidays. It's the perfect combination of sweet and musky, and fills the entire house with the smell of campfire, and makes me want to cozy up with a good book. Plus, my husband loves it too! shop here ---> Marshmallow fireside

Fresh Flowers- This year I was debating the purchase of a Christmas tree. I love the scent of fresh Christmas Trees, but here in Utah they can be difficult to take care of due to our dry winters, making them a fire hazard. Also, they are constantly shedding pine needles, and with the help of Zindy, my cat, the pine needles would be EVERYWHERE!!!!  To make this worse I don't have a vacuum yet. So instead of a tree, my husband surprised me with fresh holiday flowers and a miniature pine tree, filling our house with that Christmas tree smell, without the hassle!
 World Market Red Velvet Coffee- When it comes to flavored coffees, teas, and creamers I am obsessed! World Market has these adorable coffee stocking stuffers so you can try a taste of each kind!  If you don't have a World Market near you, you can purchase them here---> world market

Candy Cane Bliss soap- Another Bath and Body works fave, this foaming soap will leave your hands smelling just like a candy cane! Plus, it looks adorable! shop here ---> candy cane bliss

Stratford Home pillow- so this yellow pillow with white deer on it makes the perfect accent to my Christmas decor style. Its so simple I can use it year round, and It adds the right amount of color to my grayish,brown couch. Unfortunately, I don't know where you can buy this pillow because I found It at a thrift store, but you can shop similar pillows at where you can support talented artists who create each design by hand!

Let me know some of your favorites for the Holidays in the comments below!
