It's almost Christmas!! With the holiday being just 3 days away, I'm particularly in the Christmas spirit. What has made this year so much fun for me is being involved with several secret santa exchanges. It can be challenging but I just love shopping and wrapping holiday gifts!

This year, my fabulous blogger friend Monica, of Jersey Girl Texan Heart, arranged a Secret Santa for our tri-state blogger network. We also did this last year, but now our little group is getting bigger so it's even more of a surprise! It's so much fun waiting for the gift to come in the mail and wondering who it will be from! My gift from Alexandra, of Glory Boon, came on Friday.

It's a beautiful compact mirror that says 'Selfie!' How perfect! I loved the presentation of this gift. It's so bright and festive! The best things come in little boxes with big bows! Thanks, Alexandra!!

I hope you're all having fun giving and receiving this holiday season, too! What's your favorite part of the Christmas season?

Happy Friday! How was everyone's week? I hope it was as fabulously busy as mine! Being just a week out from Christmas, there wasn't a spare moment for me. I had a few last minute gifts to pick up and wrapping to do! This year I chose a 'modern Christmas' style for my gift wrapping, which included a black and white color palette with splashes of gold and red. Keep an eye on my Instagram to see the finished product!

Here's my Friday Favorites for the week!

1- Express Bar Accent Envelope Clutch, $28
I have this clutch in black and it is absolutely fab! It has a gorgeous silhouette and the best part- it fits all of the essentials! Most clutches barely fit a lipgloss but this one is completely functional. I love it in this multi-color gold.

2- kate spade new york Correspondence Cards, $25
Some may say that stationary or note cards are outdated, but the truth is- nothing feels more special than a handwritten 'thank you.' I feel that it's even more special these days because it's not the norm. It's definitely more memorable because it's so rare! These hot pink note cards are so cute!

3- kate spade new york Mini Maise Bag, $198
This handbag is amazing- need I say more? I first saw it online and loved the shape and color. Then I caught a glimpse of it in a storefront window and fell in love!

4- Spred Fashion Tulle Midi Skirt, $48
Midi skirts are so fabulous! I just love the style. It's so chic and elegant! The tulle fabric makes it even more feminine.

5- Jennifer Lopez Gold Glitter Ankle Boots, $40
I just bought these boots and I love them! The silhouette is a perfect winter staple and the color is really unique. Most boots come in black, tan, and mahogany- but these are gold shimmer! Dazzling!

Have an incredible weekend, ladies!
