I’m feeling much better about today’s outfit! I wanted to wear something very Christmassy because we’re going to get our Christmas tree and Gingerbread ingredients today, but I don’t have a lot of green in my closet. At the last minute, I spotted this scarf I’ve just gotten from Oasap, and voila! The perfect finishing touch.
And in a brilliant shot of inspiration, I decided to cut some live greenery and pin a few evergreen branches to my head for a nice wintery crown. It all went well until I picked up one that had a suspicious hanging little speck on it. Before I could pull it away from my head, I realized that suddenly, there was a spider in my hair. The worst thing, though? I swiped at it in a panic, and I don’t know where it went. So I could still have a spider on my person. It’s not a comforting thought. I suppose it’s worth the prettiness of the evergreen crown, though!
Today I am excited to share the newest addition to my jewelry wardrobe with you: this gorgeous Anjolee bridal set ring. It’s made to add to your wedding ring, but can also be worn solo it’s so pretty!
I really love wearing rings, but I’m quite particular about how they look, and it’s always hard for me to find things that are delicate enough to wear on my ring-finger hand. When Anjolee contacted me to do a review and offered up this one for me to choose, I knew it would be the perfect addition! It’s a great match for my wedding ring, and is now the only other piece of jewelry I wear daily! I love that it goes well on my ring hand or my other hand, and it’s so pretty and delicate!
Anjolee is such a great place to look if you’re ring-searching; they are highly customizable, and you can even design your own jewelry! Plus,w hat girl doesn’t like a little sparkle! Aside from rings, they also have earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. There’s so much to choose from!
Plus, their shipping is super fast! I think I got the ring about three or four days after I got the notification that it had shipped. Today, we are going to finally get our Christmas tree, and also get ingredients to make Gingerbread. I’m SO excited; I wasn’t sure if we would be getting a tree this year, since we’re house-sitting and we have nothing with us, but I think I’m going to try to DIY some Christmas ornaments, and we’re going to pop and string popcorn on the tree. It’ll be super simple this year, but that’s okay! This year is the year of everything handmade. I was feeling a little bit sad for us since it’s Asa’s first Christmas, and I wanted to make it super special but since I quit my job we’re a lot poorer (in the bank account)… but then I realized it’s still going to be fun. Actually, I’m having more fun this Christmas so far than I have in a while, and I think it’s because I have to get more creative and because we have to make everything. My heart is going into the things I’m doing this year much more than other years where I’ve had money to spare and just bought everything instead of getting creative.
So, armed with some cardboard, yarn, popcorn, paint, fabric, and glitter… I’ll see what I can do. We might buy a small thing of glass bulbs just to add a little more substance to the decor on the tree, but I’m going to try to make as many ornaments by hand as I can, with what I have laying around at this house! And I’m actually pretty excited about it!
Are you DIY-ing anything this year? It’s funny because on at least three blogs, if not more, I’ve seen the whole brown paper+ribbon/yarn/twine/whatever for wrapping paper this year, and I totally did that last year. You guys, I am so ahead of the trends. Haha!Thrifted dress and belt | Target tights and cardigan | brooch and scarf c/o Oasap | Modcloth shoes | circle ring c/o Anjolee | glasses, c/o Firmoo
I hope you are all enjoying the Christmas season! I haven’t felt Christmassy yet, but I think it’s because we have no tree. I’m so excited to get started with more decorating once the tree is here!
