Lounge :: Bits of holiday cheer!

Since moving to LA in 2009, I haven't been able to spend a Christmas at home. My parents have collected quite a variety of decorations -- boxes and boxes of candles and bulbs and nativity sets. As for my own apartment, I've never had the money, time or motivation to go all-out. Nevertheless, I have a few little moments of celebration set up.

On my wall is a tree-shaped collage made of photos & magazine clippings! I used tissue paper for ornaments. It was so relaxing, fun and easy to make. Plus, it came from items I already had! You'll see a full-length version when I post part two of my bedroom tour.

I've become obsessed with candles over the past few months, so I had to run out and get a couple of special ones for the holidays. These are apple and pine scented... mmm! My room always smells good.

And of course, I couldn't forget to include a special coffee flavor! I love associating my drinks with the seasons... so fun. This month I'm all about chocolate and mint together. It always tastes better in a cute mug, too -- don't you think? This one's from Target, my favorite store.


  1. Target has strangely become one of my favorite spots to shop for food, lol. I now buy my coffee there as they have an organic fair-trade option from Archer Farms. I am hoping to feel the Season this year. Maybe a scented candle will get me headed in that direction.

    Here's to you having a happy holiday season! xo. Bella Q

  2. Yum, just love choco + mint! Your place looks adorable and sweet--I truly think money has nothing to do with holiday cheer! Hope you are well--maybe we can all do another meet up after the holidays?

  3. I love the holidays, especially holiday candles. Bath and Body works holiday scented candles are delicous, you should give them a try. I always have some burning around the house.


  4. Your photo collage shaped like a christmas tree is such a cute idea! Love it!

  5. Target is definitely one of my favorite stores! And I agree with the coffee flavors of the season!-Jessica
