Holiday Decor

Happy first of December!

Every year my dad gives us a Lindt advent calendar so today I got to enjoy the first of many delicious chocolates! Also, my fiance and I decided that we’d wait until the first of the month to put up our Christmas decorations. He’s currently out of town though so I went ahead and put up our few decorations myself, minus the tree. I want to wait for him to get home so we can at least put the tree up together, even though it doesn’t take much time.

I was eager to put up our decorations though because I couldn’t remember what we’d purchased last year (it was our first Christmas together in our place) and wanted to buy more. I should’ve known better than looking at what new pieces stores had to offer this year, I always get tempted. Sure enough after setting everything up, I want more. Our colour scheme is gold, silver, red & white and I feel that certain spots need more of certain colours. Therefore I plan on hitting up a couple stores this weekend to purchase just a couple new decorations!

All Gold All The Time

I think it’s safe to say that most girls out there have a major gold obsession, especially if it sparkles. It just has a way making things look prettier and more exciting which is partly why I chose it to be one of the main colours for our wedding. I plan on purchasing the table runner & using it for decor at our reception!

The best ways to incorporate some gold into your life are in your wardrobe or your home. Adding pops of gold with decor pieces around your house give that extra oomph to the room and even though clothing items in this lavish colour, like the sequin skirt below, may seem fancy they can be dressed up or down. I guarantee you will be able to find something that you’ll fall in love with and have to bring home. Here are a few of my current favourite gold items!

Oh, and this. And this.

Okay, I think maybe obsessed is an understatement.
