SPARKLE SEASON

Boo and I don't really have any fancy holiday parties to go to this year, but that doesn't mean I won't get dressed up like I'm going to one. It is sparkle season after all, so every day is a good day for a sequin skirt.

P.S, you're getting a sneak peek at a new shopHollyDolly item! I'm still trying to work out a few kinks, but I'm hoping to have these wordy wire necklaces added to shop early in the new year.

FEELING FESTIVE

Hellllllllllo Monday. After a busy yet quiet weekend, I'm not so ready to get back into the work week. You see, this weekend I re-stocked shopHollyDolly at Crompton, did some christmas shopping and gift wrapping, cleaned the entire house with Christmas music playing, tackled 4 loads of laundry, sipped on hot chocolate, and watched Boo race in the Jingle Run. And I broke out my red frames, because they feel very appropriate and festive :)
