sunday snippets 01

The holiday season is literally barreling around the corner, and I've been taking every available moment to soak everything up and get ready for the upcoming celebrations. This is, without a doubt, my favorite time of the year, so I try to make the festivities begin as early as possible in November and stretch them as long as I can into January. 

things i've been loving lately:





starbucks holiday cups
The familiar red and white cups are back, and I can't begin to tell you why Starbucks changing the color of their cups to match the time of year has such an effect on me, but it does. I mean seriously, the contents inside the cup are no different, but for some reason the emergence of the holiday cups is easily one of my favorite things about this season. Such a girl, I know. 

christmas music

"Too soon?" you ask, to which I answer, "it's never too soon." As I mentioned, I'm a firm believer that the Christmas season should be celebrated for as long as possible {see: above statement and Twitter bio}, so naturally I love getting a head start on listening to festive music. Whether it's listening to Michael's Buble's Christmas CD while I work or blasting the Holiday Hits Pandora station on the TV throughout my house, I can't get enough. 

iphone 6 
finally left the stone age and joined the 21st century when I bought the iPhone 6 this past week. My old phone was a 4s, never held battery, apps crashed constantly and the number of times per day that I could be found muttering "I going to chuck this {expletive} piece of crap out the window" was outrageous. I love having a bigger screen and it's amazing how fast my phone runs now. Certainly a much-need update! Also, if anyone has come across any cute 6 cases, please let me know. The pickings are reallllll slim right now.

have a great week!

With Love,

  1. I have a Ringke FUSION case that I got on Amazon. It's cheap but it's held up well and it's kept my phone safe while I wait for Lilly Pulitzer to start making cases for the 6. If you search Lifehacker you might find some other case recommendations. I really miss the shape of my 4. It was so solid and study feeling and I liked that the edges weren't rounded. But I am happy to have a fancy new six that loads things fast! Plus I upgraded to Yosemite OS 10.10 on my computer and the two OSes work so well together.

    1. Thanks so much for your suggestions! I'll definitely check out those options. It definitely took me a while to get used to holding a huge phone, but now I love the bigger size!
