Just dropping in the day before Christmas Eve to share my favorites from this week with you all! Hope you have have such a lovely holiday over the next couple of days with your family and loved ones! xo

1 //  Favorite Recipe

This home-made recipe for a copycat version of my favorite winter time Starbucks drink, Caramel Apple Spice. This recipe was put together by Katarina from In Katarina's Kitchen...and I'm going to have to check out some other her other recipes, because everything looks so amazing! 

2 // Favorite Show

Mozart In the Jungle is back on Amazon Prime. Season 3 was just released, and if you haven't ever seen this show, you need to catch up quick! Aaron and I both love it - it is funny and interesting, and the acting is stellar. We watched the entire things (10 episodes) in one sitting - no shame! 

3 // Favorite YouTuber 

I've been watching videos from Samantha Maria over the past couple weeks. I used to follow her a few years ago (when she was known as Beauty Crush), and I don't know why I ever stopped, but I'm happy to have discovered her channel again. She is adorable and is currently 39 weeks pregnant and waiting for her baby girl to arrive any day. Check out her Vlogmas videos here

4 // Favorite Cosmetics

I've been loving so many things that I picked up from the brand Pixi Beauty recently. This brand is available at Target, is cruelty free, and has a great range of cosmetic and skincare products. I plan to do a little review post on some of my favorites soon, so stay tuned for that! 

5 // Just Favorite

I was so happy to share our big news with all of you - and thank you for all of the lovely messages you sent! If you want to keep up with how my pregnancy is going so far, you can find my first trimester update here


  1. ooh i can't wait to see your favourites from pixi. so far i've only tried the glow tonic, and have been using it for almost a month. no major skin changes yet, still got those fine lines and redness haha. i haven't watched that show, i'll have to check it out. thanks for the rec!

  2. You might have convinced me to finally start Mozart! My husband has mentioned starting it, and I know it's always nominated for a bunch of awards, but something about it has never appealed to me, buuut maybe I should give it a try! haha.

  3. The Mozart show is always in the back of my mind to watch! COngrats on your fab news, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
