CHRISTMAS HOME DECOR WITH INDIGO

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas….and this year must be some sort of record for me. I never finished decorating my house before December (I’m usually more of a ‘oh tomorrow is Christmas’ kind of person during this time of the year since I’m so busy)!

So, for all those “not so perfect” gifts that you will be returning this week, you likely need some replacements. Or, if Black Friday weekend was just too crazy for you, now is the perfect time to shop for the Holidays, since the shopping malls will not be as crowded. My…

Marc Jacobs Daisy (100ml) //5. Soia & Kyo Women’s Belted Wool Blend Coat Every year, there is a luxury piece I obsess about and my entire family knows it.

So,…
