links + small things

Holiday Gifts Under $25!

We made it to Friday! This week was a little hectic for a few different reasons. We had to replace a broken HVAC unit which took all day Thursday and also replace a broken pipe on our water heater. Those are never fun things to fix at any time of year, but it’s especially painful in the month of December!

But, it’s almost the weekend and it’s my sisters’ birthday today! I’m celebrating with her tomorrow and I’m so glad she lives near enough to me so we can get together!

I tried the Chestnut Praline Latte from Starbucks, with only one pump of the Chestnut Praline, and enjoyed it! It’s a nice change-up from my typical Americano or Flat White.

How is your holiday shopping going? I’m making decent progress but Justin and I are still debating on our “joint” Christmas gift for the kids. I’m anxious to get it ordered since I’m anticipating shipping delays so hopefully we can nail it down this weekend.

A few other links + loves. . . 

For my UK readers, I just saw that Eylure released false lashes designed by a breast cancer survivor that was looking for something when she lost her lashes during treatment.

This crust-less quiche looks delicious!

I just discovered Rebecca Allen shoes, which is a female-founded and black-owned show company with a focus on creating shoes in *different* shades of “nude”.

I get asked about my apple watch band whenever it’s shown on Instagram Stories, and it’s the Sport Loop by Apple. You can find it on Amazon here!

The actual last thing I need is another jacket but this pink puffer is calling out to me! And this gray hoodie looks lightweight and comfortable. I ordered it in charcoal grey to try!

The Lou and Grey cozy lounge set that I have had for years and love is 40% off with code FALALA. This is the sweatshirt, and these are the pants! I have a medium both and am pleased with that sizing!

This is a cute quilted coat! I love the different pockets on the front!

I got these earrings recently and love how delicate and feminine they are.

I’ve told y’all about Smitten Kitchen’s Cheese Straw recipe one hundred times already, but I just wanted to throw it out there again in case you need an easy but impressive recipe to make!
