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!

What are your favorite things to do during the Holiday Season?

❄︎ This is Day Five 🎄

Yesterday’s Post: Favorite Christmas Films

My husband and I decided to not give big and extravagant gifts to each other this Christmas because we are trying to save our money for bigger better things! We have so much planned for 2017, that Christmas presents are just not are main priority this year, but if I we were exchanging gifts this is what I would ask for! (obviously would never expect to get all of them. Maybe one or two 😉) And if you need a little bit more help on coming up with your own Christmas Wishlist then; I hope this helps you a on what to ask for!

Btw.. These are the Luxury items that I would want. I believe in investing in key pieces for my closet, instead of buying a ton of trendy cheap pieces that will quickly go out of style. I’ve also wanted these pieces for so many years, I’ve done my research on them, which I definitely recommend you doing your own research; specially for these high ticket prices.

At the top of my List is a Monogrammed Burberry Scarf, It’s Chic and never goes out of style.

Next, The Gorgeous Speedy BANDOULIÈRE 30. I’ve wanted this bag every since I was 13 years old and I still feel the same way about it! It’s crazy how this never goes out of style as well! Another Favorite of mine and also a blogger fave is the Neverfull PM.

Tiffany & Co. Makes the most stunning pair of stud Diamond earrings! I think they would be staples to have, and would go with pretty much anything.

Makeup & Skincare wise:

La Prairie Cellular Treatment Loose Powder

L’Or Pure Radiance Face Primer

Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment

Chloé Signature Set which is on sale right now! I Already own it, But It’s such a great value for the price I thought I would include it.
