These are a few of my favorite things.. about winter.

As the end of October 2011 wraps up, we are suppose to get a little snow here in Philadelphia. All this snow talk is reminding me of Winter that is vastly approaching us, as well as [[dun dun]] the Holiday Season! For whatever reason I am already getting amped up for the Holidays (I normally dread them) and I don't know why. Here is an explanation of my pictures:

1-4: Obvious winter choices. Boots, over sized sweaters, fabulous coat, and a sequined skirt? Perfection.

5: After a long day of work or a cold weekend, who wouldn't want a cozy fire place to snuggle with your pup next to or get invested into a good book? Next house is DEFIANTLY going to have one of these babies.

6: Yummy, warm drinks. Coffee, tea, hot cocoa. vanilla chai.. all delicious and warms you up on a cold day!

7 & 8: These are my holiday favorites. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Bing Crosby. You will love him too after you watch Holiday Inn. Now. Oh and A Santa Cause is my favorite Christmas CD. Okay it isn't your traditional Christmas album, but they do have a couple covers and some new songs... if you are into punkish/emo/screamo type music. I have had it since high school and I continue to listen to it every year.

9: Winter accessories! Hats, scarves, gloves! Cheap and easy to mix and match with your winter coat, or in my case (and maybe some of yours), coats!

10: Old fashioned Christmas lights.

11: Watching the snow fall.

Okay I need to stop because I keep thinking of things that I love about winter. lol. But lastly, what love the most.. since I don't have a REAL fireplace... I just YouTube this one...

Stay warm!

The Witch is back, and now there's hell to pay.

Of all the Halloween movies ever made, my all time favorite is Hocus Pocus. I have loved this movie since I was little and this time every year, I get super excited when I see it on TV. This routine is one of my favorite parts in the movie...

P.S. Did anyone else know that Binx (the cat) is McGee from NCIS? Crazy right?

What's everyone being for Halloween?
What's your favorite Halloween movie?

Pink Lady.

Another oldie from the summer. I am not so sure that I love the pink cardigan with this dress, it kind of makes me look frumpy. I do however LOVE this necklace, I wear it often. I also bought these shoes when I was in my brother's wedding and I love that I can still get some use out of them!

Special shout out to the lovely ladies at Point of Sale!!!

Stray cat blues.

Third picture in, I look like I should be in a late 60's, early 70's rock bank, don't I? I feel like I look like one of the guys of The Rolling Stones in their early day. 


On this particular day, I threw on this button up and decided it would look good with it buttoned all the way up with a bow. I searched and searched and finally found this white ribbon that was actually on a Christmas present someone had gotten me last year. Tucked in the shirt, let the hair air dry, and WAHLA! Who said rock and roll was all black, heavy eyeliner, skulls, and studs?
