Friday Favorites | Two Weeks Until Christmas

Happy Happy Friday friends! I can't even believe that we are two weeks away from Christmas. We have a jam packed weekend and I'm excited to get it started! Linking up with Amanda and April to share some favorites from the week!

Favorite New Drink

Gary introduced me to the Holiday Spice Flat White at Starbucks last weekend and I've had two since! It's like an amped up latte with a few more spices and just enough froth!! 

Funniest Gift

We celebrate both Hanukkah & Christmas and if you follow me on SnapChat (blovedboston) you know that Gary got me this shirt. We normally do a small gift for one another just one night and this year Gary wins for funniest gift. Basically it says I'm high maintenance - only a little :) 

Favorite New Desk Accessory

I have my eye on a desk calendar for work and I'm torn between fashion illustration or fun quotes! Which to go with?! 

Favorite Book Finds

I was browsing Amazon for some new books to read and came upon The Status of All Things and The Balance Project - not quite sure which one to read first...but both are chic list and totally up my alley! 

Favorite Links

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Come back Monday for some weekending fun!

  1. Two weeks till Christmas?! Get outta here! WOW!

    What a fun shirt, too cute. The new flat white is on my list to try, I'm a big fan of the regular. I think you deserve all those office accessories because they are so fabulously gorgeous. Hope you have a great weekend.

  5. Happy Friday, B! I can hardly believe we're just 2 weeks out from Christmas either!! Gotta soak up every lit'l bit of this fabulous season while it lasts! ;) All the desk calendars you're debating between are lovely! I especially like the first one, so different & cute with that little easel! That DIY hot cocoa kit would be fun to give or receive! Thanks for sharing! Enjoy your weekend, sweets!

    I keep hearing about that Flat White & wondered what it tasted like - I may have to give it a shot
    I heard on the news as soon as I woke up that its 2 weeks to Christmas & I was like WHAAATTTT? That woke me up quick. I guess I'm living in denial.
