December Favorites

December might be my favorite month of the year. It’s merry, cheery, hopeful, busy and rushed, and full of anticipation and excitement. I thrive in December. This month was made for me. So without further ado, here are my favorites from the month.

  1. FRIENDS. How have I not watched this show until now?! It’s right up there with Gilmore Girls for my favorite show – and I’m only in season 6. I’m emotionally invested and I will murder you if you give anything away. I’m almost ashamed of how quickly I’ve binge-watched the show, but not really.


    I was in NYC over Christmas break and made it a priority to go to the corner of Grove and Bedford just to get a glimpse of the Friends apartment building. Yep, that’s how intense this obsession is.

  2. Darling Magazine. I don’t know if you’ve heard about this company yet, but if you haven’t, please do yourself a favor and go check them out right now. I love Darling and what they stand for. The magazine is my new favorite thing and their blog just as incredible. I’m all for strengthening and placing value on women.


    I found Darling by scrolling through my Instagram explore page. They had just posted about a giveaway contest so I clicked the photo, followed all the steps to enter, then spent a few minutes scrolling through their feed. I went to sleep, woke up the next morning and had completely forgotten about the contest. That afternoon, I was tagged in a photo saying that I won the contest. My prize was a beautiful bag by Parker Clay (again, such a cool company doing GOOD things that you need to go check out). It was my very own Christmas miracle.


  3. Wrapping presents. We all know I’m obsessed with black. Well, this year I decided to keep the whole minimal/black and white theme with my wrapping. I did throw in some gold, cause gold. Duh. I’m a pro gift wrapper and my family knows I am not humble about this fact. Thanks to Target, I took my wrapping to a whole new level this year.


  4. Target. Okay, this is more of an all-the-time-forever-and-always-never-letting-go kind of favorite, but the amount of times I went into Target this month is disturbing. Target basically sponsors my life. If you don’t have the Cartwheel app – DOWNLOAD IT NOW. I love that thing. But here’s what I’m most proud, in December, I finally mastered the extreme feat of entering Target with a few items on my list and leaving the store with ONLY THOSE SAME ITEMS. I know. Big deal.

    I’ve had my eye on some winter decor since before Thanksgiving, but I made a promise to myself that I would wait until it went on sale to buy any of it. Those items are now proudly on display in my room because I kept the promise (go me).

Thanks December. Don’t tell the others, but you’re still my favorite.
