A few of my favorite things - GIVEAWAY!

Do you remember the song from The Sound of Music:
"I simply remember my favorite things....."

I heard this song on the radio several times over Christmas and it gave me the idea to do a giveaway of a few of my favorite things!

1.) A cozy knitted scarf! I always love knitted scarves to stay warm and complete an outfit.
2.) Red nail polish and a buffer to keep the nails looking pretty.
3.) Pretty pink lip gloss - maybe for that New Years kiss? :)
4.) Warm, fun printed socks!

I saw this sweater on a few other blogs and just had to have it. It arrived a few weeks ago and I was thrilled to wear it! It is so soft and comfortable, just what I like! I was inspired to wear the small polka dots under large polka dots by Lauren over at Atlantic Pacific. Checkout my outfit inspiration here.

I have a lot of exciting things coming up this week with Christmas just around the corner and then my husband and I are off to New York to celebrate New Years with friends!

What are your big holiday plans this year?

Christmas DIY - All Things New Sundays

I had a couple of empty wine glasses and decided to do a DIY project with them. Here are two ways you can reuse those empty bottles!

DIY Festive Christmas Decor:

Bottle #1
Since this bottle was clear, I painted it with chalkboard paint. You will need to do two layers of chalkboard paint because as you can see below, the first layer goes on very thin:

After I did the second coat of chalkboard paint and it was dry, I took some rope string and tied it around the neck of the bottle. I added some jingle bells to give it an extra festive look. I also added Christmas berries as the arrangement:

Lastly, I wrote NOEL up the side to complete the look:

Bottle #2
I liked the dark green color glass of this bottle so I decided to simply just wrap the same rope string and bells around the neck and also add some Christmas berries

This was a simple, easy, and cheap DIY project! I hope you are inspired to create something new this week!
