Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!


Can you believe it's the holiday season? I can't believe that Thanksgiving is already here and Christmas is fast approaching. I've decided to be extra on top of it this year since it seems like there is no time come December. I wanted to get a jump start on wrapping my Christmas presents.

To set the holiday mood, I cracked open this amazing-smelling gingerbread candle from Thymes. They sent me a few of their holiday collection items and, when I opened it, it was like instant holiday around my apartment. The other thing I've been loving was this pine diffuser. It seriously smells like there is a 6ft tall Christmas tree hidden somewhere in my studio apartment.

I also poured myself a cup of this egg nog almond milk I've been obsessed with and turned up my favorite Christmas music to get in the spirit of things.

This year I've decided to take a glamorous natural approach to my wrapping. I saw this idea of including an air plant as a present topper and I fell in love with it. It's like giving two gifts in one! I also like how it adds an element of green.

The twine adds a bit of a rustic edge. I love how the velvet looks with the brown paper.

Also, how cute does that little gingerbread sachet look? It would also make the perfect present topper. Not to mention it smells heavenly! 

What a peaceful afternoon getting presents wrapped up for the holidays.
