🎄 This is Day 2 🎄

 

I love all things Christmas! And I want to make my home feel nice and cozy for the holidays. My style is very minimal, neutral colors, with pops of color. My theme this year is red and gold, with accents of red plaid, and lots of pre-lit greenery.  So here is what i’ve done to my apartment so far. Enjoy!

On my entertainment center I wrapped some garland that I got from the target dollar spot, It’s beautiful and so glittery. Also, you can never go wrong with a few twinkle lights. This is also one of my favorite pictures from our wedding that always sits here. And one of our favorite scents from bath and body works, is winter.

I had an exact idea of what I wanted to do for my sitting area, and now looking at it I feel like some furry white pillows would really complete the look. So now I’m in the lookout for the perfect ones. But for now, I found the type of throw pillows I wanted, not quite the color because they’re a bit dull, but the look of them. You have no idea what we went through to find these.

We only have room for one side table, but I can’t forget about it. Even though it’s in the far corner, I still have to make it a little festive. So I got this set of 3 white Christmas trees that bring the some light to this dark corner.

My Christmas tree is so special to us. We got about 3 or 4 years ago, when we first got married and we still love it so much! Again I go for a more simply, uniform look. I pick my colors for the year and I make it happen. I definitely don’t like the crowded look. Still on the lookout for the perfect tree skirt. If you have nay suggestions that would go with my theme, please let me know in the comments.

The kitchen this year, I decided to go with lots of pre-lit garland. My favorite is the 18 ft. by phillips #notsponsored. The lights on it are warm and soft. just absolutely perfect. Just threw some all around the cabinets, and i’m obsessed!

IMG_0417.JPG

This is the hallway corner that I never know what to do with it, and it’s always empty. I just filled it with this little table that I no longer wanted in my office and it fits perfectly here. What do you think of my small Christmas tree? and my little winter birdie?

This is my office/living room, the room is a complete mess, but the background of my videos is on point!

I’ve never been interested in decorating our bedroom for the holidays. But this year I wanted to do something, and here’s what I have so far!

There’s lots more I want to do in our apartment but I couldn’t wait to show you, what I have so far.

Thanks for joining me! See you Wednesday! xo, kat

My Christmas Bucket List (Day 1)| 12 days of Blogmas 2018 | Kat

When to expect a Blogmas post: There will be a new Blogmas post every other day in the month of December, Starting on December 1, 2018! This will be a series of fun/Christmas themed blog content. I hope you’re ready because there’s so many fun things that I have planned! Make sure you click the “FOLLOW” button to get a notification of when i’ve posted something new! Trust me, you don’t want to miss anything! 

🎄 This is Day 1 🎄

This list will contain a sneak peak of what’s to come to my blog in the month of December. Fun memories that I want to create with my friends and family. Things that i’ve been wanting to do for years or simply traditions that, we have carried out for years now.

In no particular order:

1. See Andrea Bocelli live..🎤

It’s been about four years now that my husband and I have wanted to go to one of his concerts; we have never gotten around to actually doing it. and this Christmas might just be it. I think he’s absolutely amazing. And the thought of hearing him live makes me so happy. Fingers crossed that we actually get to go.

2. Take lots of pictures..📸

It sounds ridiculous for this to be on my list, but I find that the older I get, the busier the holidays get. Therefore, I tend to not take a step back and be in the moment, and capture a picture, to remember that moment, and that feeling forever.

3. Houston Zoo Lights..🎄🎄🎄

Every year we always say, “we’ll go this year!” and again we get so busy, and forget to do fun things, and enjoy ourselves. So i’m writing it in this list and hopefully I won’t forget.

4. Make a Hot Chocolate bar.. ☕️

On cold winter days, all you want is a warm drink. Why not make it easy for everyone to serve themselves a cup of coffee, or hot chocolate, with their favorite toppings? Also, adding a cozy vibe to my kitchen.

5. Go to Santa’s Wonderland..🎅🏻🎄☃️❄️

We went last year, and it was unforgettable. I hope one day I can take my children there. It’s simply magical.

6. Watch a Christmas movie every night..🎅🏻🎞

So simply, but trust me this is so hard to do, after a long day at work, or shopping for Christmas gifts, all you want to is crawl in bed for the night. But this is about memories. and we only get 25 days to do so!

7. Go to the River Walk in San Antonio..🚗🚗🚗

We’ve been to San Antonio countless of time before but never, during the holidays. I hear that it’s incredible! So we want to experience that as well.

8. Finding our Christmas ornament..🎄

This is a tradition that my husband and I started our first Christmas. We Still have not found “our one” for this year, but i’m sure we’ll find it soon. It has to be meaningful. Kind of like a recap of the year, in one ornament.

9. Baking sugar cookies..🍪🥛

WE have not mastered my mother-in-laws, sugar cookie recipe, But we’re hoping to do so this year. They are my favorite cookies to eat during Christmas time.

10. Make my apartment Cozy..🎄

The tree is already up.. But the rest of the apartment is still pending stay tuned to see what theme I went for this year.

 

There’s lots more things I want to do, but I don’t want to keep you here all day! I hope y’all enjoyed reading my Christmas list, and that maybe you got some inspiration from it, to get out and do something this Christmas. Let me know what you think in the comments, and leave suggestions of other fun things I can add to my list.

♡, Kat

Yesterday’s Post: My Christmas Eve Outfit

It’s finally cold enough to wear my Favorite thicker Christmas Sweaters! Which I am so happy about. In today’s post I will be sharing with y’all my go-to Festive Christmas sweaters!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset
BRAND: WEARING YOUR HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE

This Charcoal grey sweater  may look plain and simple but if look at it closely, no those aren’t hearts, or falling snow on it! They’re penguin footprints, how do I know? well,

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

 

Well, at the bottom of the sweater is a cute adorable penguin! He’s so cute, and i’ve gotten so many compliments. Marshall’s has really similar ones!

BRAND: FOREVER 21

More on the girly/feminine side.. This Sweater is so soft! I feel like I’m wearing a cloud. It has bouclé all over it, and my favorite part of it, is the lace around the trim of it!

Processed with VSCO with t1 preset
BRAND: WHITE STAG

Although this one has some sentimental value, because my mom gave it to me about years ago (She knows my love for Christmas) I still think the pattern is absolutely adorable! And what makes it even more perfect is it being a turtleneck, this is the only turtleneck I own and I love it! They just don’t make sweaters like this anymore.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset
BRAND: SANS SOUCI

You just can’t go wrong with sequence! I wore this in a recent video and my subscribers were asking me if the sweater had LED lights. That’s how much sequence it has, The picture does not do it justice!

Do you have a favorite Christmas sweater? Let me know in the comments with a pic!

❄︎ This is Day Six 🎄

Yesterday’s Post: My Christmas Wishlist

There are so many exciting things to do, during the Holiday season. From Christmas Gift Shopping to Fairy light watching. Here’s a list of my Top Ten Favorite things to do during this Wonderful time.

ss

  1. Making my home nice and cozy! With soft blankets and furry cushions on the Couch, and candles everywhere!
  2. Setting up the Christmas Tree as soon as we can, but we usually try to get through Thanksgiving before we set it up! How soon do you set your tree up?
  3. Believe it or not, I find that shopping for people that I love during Christmas, is way more fun than receiving gifts. Mostly because i’m pretty good at guessing what people want!
  4. I’m not sure if there is something similar in other cities, but here in Houston we have something we the Zoo Lights, Which is exactly that Our Houston Zoo Just decked out for the Holidays. It’s pretty extraordinary if you ask me. And family friendly!
  5. This may sound a bit creepy but everyone does it, and if you don’t you’re truly missing out! I love going through other peoples neighborhoods to see how they’ve decked out their front yards! It’s so cool how everyone’s individuality comes out through how they decorate for Christmas! Grab a Cup of Hot Chocolate and get in your car and drive around with your family; and watch how amazed they get, the Best part is that it’s free!
  6. Going out of town to visit family i’ve not seen in months! Especially if where they live there’s snow!
  7. Watching Christmas Films of Course! Cuddling up on the couch watching Elf, sounds like the perfect night for me!
  8. Having Spa Nights! Especially when it’s cold outside, throw a bath bomb in the Tub full of water, set up some candles and relax!
  9. Church Christmas Programs! They’re always the best and we all get to sing together to our favorite Christmas songs sang by the Choir!
  10. Spending time with my loved ones, seeing how much joy this time of year brings them!
