Currently Loving...

TGIF Ladies!
Can you believe there is less than 2 weeks until Christmas.... it's definitely crunch time! I will be spending my weekend finishing up my Christmas shopping (finally) and hopefully baking some cookies in preparation for all the holiday parties the following weekend. Most of all I am looking forward to sitting by the tree and soaking up all the Christmas spirit going around. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend no matter what you end up doing! 

Here is what I am currently loving this week:

I'm a little obsessed with this Rashida Jones' article that she wrote for the January issue of Glamour magazine. She highlights how the women in pop culture have used their bodies to sell music. I know that's nothing new but her take on it was very insightful and it ended up making me thing about my own life and how important it is respect my body and support other females in my life.

Last weekend in NYC I spotted these amazing cashmere gloves in C Wonder. I debated about buying them and ended up buying a sweater instead... now I have major regret. Hoping they show up in my stocking on Christmas morning. 

Christmas Packages
Our house has been like Santa's workshop lately. Much to Misa's dismay the UPS guy has showed up every day this week to drop of some sort of packages. This year I did a lot of online shopping for my mom so those packages have been trickling in. In addition my uncle ships all of my cousins Christmas gifts to my house (so Santa Alex can wrap them). It's been fun coming home to boxes and wondering whats inside.

Survivor Blood vs. Water Finale
I'm a bit of a nerd but I've been obsessed with Survivor since I was in 5th grade. This season has been so good with family competing against eachother for 1 million dollars. I am looking forward to seeing who comes out on top this weekend when the finale airs. Also I recently applied for Survivor: Blood vs. Water 2 with my cousin Josh as a part of my 25 Before 25 list so I've been taking close notes!

I've wanted to add a faux fur vest to my wardrobe for sometime now but I wanted a longer one that has lighter colored tones. Enter this beautiful vest from Banana Republic, that has the pattern of a snow leopard. This vest has officially been added to my Christmas list because it would be perfect for those cold upstate winter days we've been having lately.

What do you have planned for this weekend?
