December’s 3 New Things

December is already here but I wouldn’t know it considering today’s high is 69 degrees. (WHAT?) Honestly if it’s never going to snow here in Ohio then I’m out. I need a cold winter! I’m sure not everyone else agrees with me but I’m totally baffled and bummed by this spring-like weather. Oh well, that’s my rant. I feel officially old when I rant about the weather on the internet. On to my 3 new things for December:

  1. Choose, frame and hang artwork in our bedroom: I just got a lot of artwork custom framed for our dining area and it cost $400 (WITH a 60% discount…gaaah) so I’ll be looking for more affordable ways to spruce up our bedroom. I’m thinking of blowing up some Instagram shots or photography of mine and framing it like the photo above (source). Think: standard sizing.
  2. Get creative with our Christmas gift wrapping: I say this every year but I really want to do it this time! I’m thinking simple wrapping paper like the photo above and use ribbon/twine/thread with custom designed tags.
  3. Find the perfect lipstick: I have big lips (I cannot lie) and I’m really, really picky about my lipstick. I’ve tried Makeup Forever, Bobbi Brown, MAC and lots of other options but nothing strikes my fancy. I’m going to give NARS a shot (the matte version) and see what I like. I just have this thing where I hate trying on used tubes at Sephora. Totally grosses me out. Recs? (photo source)

So there’s my list. Nothing crazy but I think it will be fun to experiment and share as I check them off. Do you have any goals this month?

Oh and P.S!!! I sent out the Christmas City Swap emails this past weekend. I’ve had lots of you say that you received them but others either notified me that my email went to their spam folder or they didn’t receive it at all (grrr) so comment below if you signed up but didn’t receive your swapee’s information!
