Currently Loving...

TGIF friends! 
I am so happy it's the weekend (I always feel like the first 5 day week after a long weekend takes forever to end). Here are the 5 things I have been loving this week....

New York City
I leave tomorrow for a day trip to NYC and I am so excited. My mom and I go every year the first week of December, our holiday tradition. Normally we go see a show but this year we didn't get tickets so we are focusing on shopping instead. I'm pumped to hit up stores like C Wonder and Lord & Taylor which aren't in my area, plus I get to eat at my favorite restaurant down in the city Clyde Fraziers Wine and Dine (owned by former New York Knick Hall of Famer) and see the Christmas tree is Rockefeller Center! 

I am having some serious regrets right now. I've had my eye on this navy ruffle collared top for some time now but figured I would wait until the Black Friday sales to scoop it up. Unfortunately, when I went to buy it last week it had already sold out, so I am patiently waiting with my fingers crossed that it will come back in stock before Christmas. 

Booking a Flight!
This week has been a nightmare trying to coordinate with everyone going on the Costa Rica trip and finding flights at a decent price. Each time someone bought a ticket the price would go up and different airlines were offering different deals. I was so relieved when I finally settled on a flight and booked everything. This trip is really coming together!

Christmas Lights
I don't know about the rest of you but I've seen so many beautiful light displays in my town and it has totally gotten me in the Christmas spirit. Plus this Sunday we are putting up our tree and decorating it, I am looking forward to drinking some hot cocoa, having a fire in the fireplace and bringing some Christmas cheer inside my home. 

Dexter on Netflix
So over a year ago I got hooked on the show Dexter, I bought seasons 1-3 on DVD and watched them all pretty quickly. However, it gets expensive buying DVD sets so I stopped but now I just found out the first 4 seasons are on Netflix and the final 4 seasons will be released on January 1st! I already started season 4, so addicting I definitely recommend the show to all of you!

What do you have planned for this weekend?


  1. We started watching Dexter a year ago and never finished season 1. Maybe we should get back to it? Have a great weekend in NYC!

  2. I hope you have a fabulous time in NYC Alex! That sounds like it will be a really fun trip!


  3. wish you a lovely trip :) would you like to follow each other dear :) xx

  4. I feel the same way about that sweatshirt - I am so sad I didn't jump on board this fancy sweatshirt trend earlier, I could have been so much more comfy an warm at work!

  5. Have a blast in NYC Alex! And make sure you hit up all those fabulous stores & do some C Wonder shopping :)


  6. I love Dexter! I got hooked years ago and then I got my boyfriend hooked, I'm so sad its over. I can't bring myself to watch the last few episodes. I also really like that sweatshirt. If it doesn't come back in stock Jcrew factory has a button down with a similar ruffled collar you could layer under any sweatshirt. Thats my plan anyway.


  7. I was so excited when I saw that Dexter was on Netflix! I was a little bummed when they only had the first four seasons because I have all of them on dvd but the last two. I didn't know the last 4 would released in January so that's great!


I appreciate you taking the time to check out my posts! I read every single comment! xo
