Random Wednesday

Hi Friends! I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! I can't believe another Christmas has come and gone. Why does it go by so fast? We had a nice Christmas back home in Savannah and I am so thankful I had some vacation time left to take the rest of the week off. I'm really looking forward to it! Since it's Wednesday, I thought I'd bring you a little randomness...

I absolutely love Christmas decorations. If my home was bigger, I'd have even more decorations than I already do. Lack of space always ruins things! It pains me to even think about taking my tree and decorations down. Growing up, we NEVER took our Christmas tree and decorations down until the first full week of January. I have carried on this tradition in my home too.
Here's a picture of my parent's Coastal Christmas tree. I just love it!
My mom did such a great job!

What about you? Do you leave yours up after New Year's?

New Year's Eve will be here in just a few quick days. I'm trying to decide what to wear. We typically spend NYE with friends at their lake house in the mountains.
It's a casual evening but I still like to have a little sparkle. 

I'm thinking about something like this, paired with jeans...

Or something like this, with black pants or jeans...

Regardless, I will wear some sparkly jewels and fun makeup. 
What about you?

Speaking of makeup, my parents gave me this awesome eyeshadow palette for Christmas. 
I can't wait to use it! 
So pretty!

Every Christmas I look forward to watching the Kennedy Center Honors. 
It comes on tonight and my mom and I have a date to watch it. 
There are some great honorees this year.
Do you watch?

All this vacation time and coziness made me realize it's time to update our throws. 
I'm crushing on this one from C.Wonder. 

Doesn't it look so warm and cozy?

Well, that's all the randomness I have for today. 
I hope you are enjoying the rest of your Christmas week! 

I'm linking up with Shanna for Random Wednesday.
Hop over and check it out. I guarantee you will love it! 


  1. I am taking my tree down as soon I get up the energy to pack everything back up! I LOVE the naked palette, one of my go tos! The first 4 are my faves. I found you via Nicole @ Probably Polka Dots.
    Hailey @ Love, Laughter and Lipstick

  2. I have a faux tree, so I leave it up till about mid-january, it's too pretty to take down!

    love your parents' coastal tree!

  3. You mean you won't be wearing leather pants like the girl in option 2? LOL! We usually try to take our tree down before New Years Day. Not sure if it will happen this year with our travels. Happy Holidays to you! Stacie xo

  4. Beautiful tree!

    I love decorating for Christmas too! I plan on taking my stuff down the first part of January, if not sooner!

    Happy New Year!


  5. Your parents tree is beautiful. I usually like to leave our decorations up until after New Years but this year it just had to go early!

    I love the blazers you chose for NYE! So pretty and sassy too!

    I got a faux fur throw from Target of all places!!! I love it and am using it daily!!


Hi there and thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you!
