serious sparkle!

I'm dying to get my hands on a sparkly skirt. I would say a top, but I know it would wreak havoc on my curly hair. No bueno.
What I love though, is when someone adds a seriously sparkly item and makes everything else casual, cozy even.
If this isn't casual glam, I don't know what is. 

Check out all the other glam outfits over on long distance loving.
Have a wonderful and sparkly weekend!

If you follow me on twitter or instagram, then you probably know that I'm obsessed with tea and cinnamon. Here's the evidence.
-A vanilla rooibos tea latte at Starbucks.
-Cinnamon pinecones. I couldn't just leave the grocery store without them. 
-A cinnamon broom!! My family has been getting them for years and I was pretty annoyed that I hadn't been able to find any in Oregon. I finally found them at Trader Joe's! Hang one on the inside of your door and enjoy.
-A cute holiday cup filled with the best chai latte at my favorite coffee shop. 

Yep, I'm pretty obsessed.

It's December! Crazy, right?
Since Thanksgiving, I've had the Michael Bublé Christmas album on repeat.
Seriously love that album.
