Beauty of the Holidays

You know those days where you have to wake up, really early, and drag your ass to wherever you need to be- in my case… school. Its still sort of dark out and your half contemplating the extent of how terribly unhappy you are in this moment and half wondering WHY you aren’t just skipping yet another Monday morning art class. (I mean I love art but I don’t love anything before 9:30am…at least)

And then you have to throw on some scary puffy jacket and your hair is half straight and half in ringlets, and your mascara is already running down your face and your defining what it means to be a mess more and more by the second.

Well it was one of those days for me, but thankfully I snapped out of it when I realized that the holiday spirit is in the aiiiirrr. I got up, watched some Hepburn, painted my nails to resemble somewhat of a Christmas present, made some Christmas tea, listened to some Christmas classssics and now I even managed to write this blog post!

So this is my attempt at passing on the holiday joy to everyone else having one of those days. So below is sort of like a pre-holiday bad day survival kit. I mean- how could you not smile listening to Marilyn Monroe sing Santa Baby...?

Unless of course it’s a Monday… then all I can say is good luck to you….

Nespressos work everytime. Especially when its the limited addition christmas flavour <3 
Christmas nails... they aren't even that nice not that I look at them...
but then again- anything holiday-esque is nice.

Prospective christmas gifts... I recently discovered this jewellery designer Delfina Delettrez. Really friken awesome.
Excuse the screenshot.. you gotta do what you gotta do when it comes to christmas gifts, right?

They're not even my dogs!! This is the famous Marni and Cubby Beckerman (Beckerman Twins Dogs)
This was so cute that yes in fact I did have to screenshot their Instagram. And yes, I did then add a filter of my own and make it my background. 

NOW HAVE A LISTEN... and your day should pick up a bit!! Unless your scrouged or grinched or something is seriously the matter with you. 

Marilyn Monroe- Santa Baby

Dean Martin- Baby Its Cold Outside

One more thing, if your still the grinch then try watching The Bishop's Wife.
Christmas, Angels and Cary Grant - is it possible to not be cheered up after that?
I don't think so.. 
I mean, Cary Grant on his own should do the trick.
