We are officially in to November and I am busier than ever. Let the holiday madness begin! Between a full time job, blogging, holiday shopping, decorating, planning, and birthdays (whew, I think I got them all), I am going to be one busy bee the next few months. Every year I just completely take the end of the year off, which is typically the entire week after Christmas and New Years. This year I am looking at some nice time off from December 23rd – January 2nd, and I can’t wait!
This week’s Instpiration:
How cute is this McDonald’s in Portugal?! I am obsessed with it.
You guys. The VIB sale at Sephora starts TODAY! By the time you have read this though I will have already shopped my little heart out. That’s right, I’ll have stayed up until midnight adding items to my cart.
Dear Future Self,
Please order a triple shot latte in the morning.
Are you guys planning to shop the sale? VIB Rouge was last week and I am literally only $70 away from my Rouge status. Since starting this blog I’ve apparently racked up the moolah. Let me know what you guys are planning to get! I will most likely be planning to purchase something for a holiday giveaway on my blog as well (towards December). Also, I was thinking of actually doing a video of all the stuff I bought during the sale. Would you guys like that? I am terrible on camera, but I might have a go at it. I’ll still post a blog outlining all the items I purchased, but just maybe it will be accompanied by a video. 😉
Next week I am really wanting to do a fall/winter ‘makeup menu’ on Coat + Coffee. I got the idea from Reflection of Sanity, and since I don’t post much about makeup anymore, I thought it would be nice to give a little update of my favorites. However I am much more in love with skin care, and that will always continue to be my main focus. Speaking of skin care, I am pretty much done with testing out my Honest Beauty stuff. A review will come sometime this month for sure. Currently I am playing around with the new Kathleen Lights x Morphe Eyeshadow Palette. It’s gorgeous from first glance, but definitely has some mixed reviews.
I don’t really have any plans this weekend except to work on my blog and hang out around the house. I might (I said might) start my decorating early this year. To be honest I’ve always been one of those strict ‘no decorating until after Thanksgiving’ people, and now I kind of want to experience the other side. I think for a lot of people the holidays just go by so fast! Last year it felt like I had just gotten my decorations up, and then took them all down a day later. Maybe that’s a sign we really need to stop, slow down, and enjoy the holidays more. But this year I am throwing my rules out the window! Whatever makes you happy, right?
Do you have any fun weekend plans? And what’s your opinion on decorating early?! If you’re sitting here reading this like “eff the holidays,” then check out my top 5 Cheapest Holiday Destinations, and we’ll see you next year!
