Sunday Shopping: Gifting & Getting!

I love the holidays,
full of family, no work, & presents!
What could be better?!

My favorite part of this holiday season has been our addition of the elf-on-the-shelf,
it has been hilarious {& sometimes inappropriate} to move him around!

Another VERY EXCITING announcement was made!
My sister Audrey is engaged! 
I am so excited for her! 

My sister Bianca also got a bully! 
Welcome to the family Ellie! 
She is super cute, but a little tyrant!  

But Maggie seems to accept her little cousin! 
Now they are the three best friends!

So a lot has been going on lately!
{hence the lack of posts... 
but I am working on getting back into the flow of things in between celebrating!}
My favorite part of the holidays is to find the perfect gifts for the people I care most about!

 I had to get my mom this skiing blouse from the Bass outlet... 
since she always says, "What does it look like I'm skiing?"
& got her the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target small black bag she loved!

 A gift that will keep on giving is this awesome shiitake mushroom log kit from Williams Sonoma had to get it for my dad! 

I also had to get my big sister from my sorority these high heel studs from Kate Spade,
too perfect for a fellow shoe lover!

Of course I can't leave out my amazing gifts!

My sisters got me: an amazing Rebecca Minkoff lap top case, a fab desigual sweater from Kaly Clothing, a sunflower blouse, a aztec cardigan, a pink metallic skirt {perfect for New Years!}, & an adorable picture frame of me and my youngest sister Silvia.
My hubby got those pug loafers- details below!
My big got me that interesting pug eye glass case {I loled- too funny/creepy}

My hubby got me these amazing jewels!
rose bracelet- Mr. Kate / love bracelet- Anthropology / wifey necklace- Rebecca june / baublebar- Bijou Gem Strand Necklace {which lead me to my little feature on the baublebar main page! AH!}

My sister Bianca always gets us um... interesting stocking stuffers.
Last year- rape whistle & pepper spray,
this year- Breaking Bad "Blue" lollypops. 
She is a chemist after all ;) 

My big also got us these interesting wine coasters that go around the bottom of the wine glass! 

 My sister also got me these "It's not home without a pug & bulldog" signs! 
so cute! 
{P.S. love my vintage American flag from my trip to Vermont last spring- which was my Christmas present last year! This year the hubby got us a night at The Castle at Skylands Manor, so pretty!  I'm so excited!}

I love these prints that my big got me! They are so adorable!
My friends and family obviously know I am obsessed with my dogs!

My favorite present has to be these Chiara Ferragni Matilda Suede Loafers
& look just like barry! 
{he approves!}

The hubby also got me the Cake for Breakfast Ampersand Tee in Berry but it is too small so I had to send it back & have to wait for the larger one to come in- but so excited to finally have this!  

Perhaps one of my favorite Christmas present that we got was from Charlie's boss & its this awesome framed tile, the color is amazing and it is the perfect addition to our bookshelf!

Perhaps my most useful and a gift that keeps on giving is the iPhone remote & stand that allows me to take my own outfit pictures!! 
It will be perfect for the shop & for these short days when my hubby doesn't get home until after the sun is down!

What I Wore: glasses- c/o firmoo, eye makeup- Naked3 pallet!, wifey necklace- Rebecca june sweater- desigual sweater from Kaly Clothing, pants- Target, flats- Sam & Libby for Target

I think the hubby's favorite gift was his beard comb...
last year he got razors & shaving cream... I guess we gave up this year!

Happy Holidays!
Can't wait to celebrate New Years in a few short days!
