MUSIC MONDAY | BIRTHDAY WEEK HAS BEGUN

God has blessed me with a sunny lead into my birthday week, straight contrast from last year's snow shit show. Regardless, its my birthday week, Jay-Z is performing ON my birthday, and NERD Lemon album drops Friday. I am channeling good vibes and working really hard to launch a new project I have been painstakingly working on the past few months!
In other major news, I put together my 2018 vision/mood board. In this photo is is incomplete. I have since added home decor inspo, saving money, and blogging inspo. I think its going to be a good year. As for right now, this is my current playlist:

HAPPY MONDAY! CHEERS TO A GOOD WEEK.
LOVE, MARA

NATIONAL COOKIE DAY

SOURCE
Do you consider animal crackers cookies or crackers? Regardless, they are my favorite ever though I can only eat like 3 before feeling sick. My other favorite? Macarons. When i went to NY I stopped into Laudree and got my entire life. It was snowing, everything was quiet and super chic. I loved it. For cookie day, the idea of marrying the two is ICONIC. I need to try this recipe from Sarah Makes Stuff. It looks amazing.

CURRENT CRAVE: Henri Bendel

I have always been a Bendel Fan, but this petrol collection is EVERYTHING. I currently carry a Kate Spade bag that I purchased shortly before leaving Texas and it has held up. I wear it every day and drag it around but it looks brand new. I used to try to buy a new bag every year. I don't need to, but my eye is on this collection. If it goes on sale I will consider it, the color is so slick. Its almost black so it will go with everything!

HELLO DECEMBER | Everyone Nose


OK Blogmas is off to a slow start! Yes and no--but I can't talk about it yet.
What I can talk about is TODAY IS CANDLE DAY at Bath and Body Works. I only bought 4, mostly because I was upset that there was no additional coupon that would stack. If you have not gone to get you candles yet, go! They are my favorite and a house staple. I always have a candle on.
I have this thing with scents, I'm not sure why. A lot of them are tied to memory and a lot of them just make me happy. When Kim Kardashian announced she was releasing perfumes with a gardenia note I knew I had to have it.

A HOLIDAY GUIDE | BOOTLEG BAUBLES


I'm totally kidding, this is not a gift guide. I came across bootleg baubles earlier this week and I am sad I didn't think of this myself. Everyone is dying over these Ikea stockings. I have a few ikea bags so I might fire the sewing machine up and make a couple.
Tis the season.
Does anyone have a hype tree? I cant wait to see holiday decor. I know any people put up decorations right after thanksgiving... including me. It's also officially sag season!Where did this year go? I can't.
LOVE, MARA
