Season Favorites

by Heather

I suppose since I can officially see December on my calendar it’s time to embrace the holiday season. It took the course of several days, but our tree is finally up & decorated, and most of our household decorations are up.

I’ll be honest, not everything made the cut this year- chasing an almost-walking baby away from breakables and enticing, sparkly, pullable things just isn’t really my idea of holiday fun.


Nonetheless, it’s time for some of my tried & true holiday favorites to start making their appearances.

First up: Sugar Plum Spice Tea, aka holiday in a toasty warm mug. Forget Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride {I do not understand the widespread appeal of that nastiness}. Warning: not gluten free. Yup, glutened tea.

Next up: Evergreen room spray. The only thing that makes an artificial Christmas tree semi-acceptable. I spray it approximately 800 times a day.


Coffee & cute reusable mugs: ok, this isn’t seasonal…but necessary and eagerly welcomed on a daily basis.

Green smoothies: not seasonal either, but gotta counteract all those holiday treats with some power packed nutrients, right?

All things fleece. Blankets, pullovers, and of course, baby goodies. The best.

Notebooks/Journals. Because let’s be honest, my brain isn’t remembering anything on its own any time soon. And there’s LOTS to remember this holiday season!

What are your seasonal favorites?

Love it all! Especially your tree, beautiful! I really need to get some of that tree spray! I love walking around the streets of NYC this time of year and passing the Christmas trees, loooooove that fresh tree smell!!

I love your leather journal! I need to get better about journaling to stay organized!

Great list! I love the seasonal Starbucks drinks. :) I have that reusable starbucks clear cup and i use it for smoothies almost every morning! Unfortunately the lid doesn’t seal on mine.

Love your list! I also love pumpkin (still) and peppermint. Not I mention, who needs a red solo cup when you have Starbucks Red holiday cup! :)

My favorite is the pine smell too… between buying out Yankee candles pine candles and sprays it’s as if I have a real tree!

The seasonal coffees are to die for. I think the sugar cookie tea is SICK NASTY!

My favorite part is spending time with the family and friends and all the fun cooking that ensues :)
