Christmas Wine Cork Decor, Personalized Stockings and Dog Reindeers

Hi guys!
I am totally getting into the Christmas spirit lately! It’s been three months since Greg and I got married, and it’s already time for Christmas! This is how we’ve been decorating and celebrating. Enjoy!

Since it's our first married Christmas together, we decided to get new, personalized stockings! We thought the cableknit stockings were kind of cool and unique - they are from Hopefully mine won't have coal in it come Christmas day... =)

Who knew wine corks and beer caps could look so festive? This wreath was one of Greg's creations! We got a cheap, plain wreath from Michael's, a red bow, and had no trouble rounding up extra wine corks and beer caps. Hot glue them onto the wreath in the pattern of your choice, and you have the coolest wreath ever. Ours is hanging proudly on our front door!

My awesome sister in law got us this village piece last year! We love it and it's under our tree. Hopefully one day we can add to our collection and get a Christmas village going.

And last but not least, I got Seamus these antlers from the dollar store. Even he was getting in the Christmas spirit! Well, actually he was just trying to get them off and was only sitting nicely for the photo because I was holding a treat =)

More Christmas fun to come, hope everyone is enjoying the season!!

Be Bold - Daytime Red Lips!

Feeling the winter blues? I am. I'm not usually a daytime red lip fan, but decided to bite the bullet the other day and wore it to work. I loved it! I kept my other makeup very minimal - foundation, some blush and 2 coats of mascara. MAC's Ruby Woo is a beautiful color - it's a matte red that is muted and not super showy for the daytime. What do you guys think? Take the plunge and try something different! Xo
