Happy December, friends!
December is one of my FAVORITE months! I love the excitement and joy of this month as many prepare for Christmas. The lights, the smells, the tastes, even the snow! And it helps that December is also the month of my birthday Because this month is one of my faves, I thought it would be fun to post about my current favorite things! Then I thought it may be fun to post about my faves monthly, or seasonally, or to be honest… whenever I feel like it, let’s not put a schedule on it (I don’t really like to be held to a schedule, even if it’s a schedule I give to myself, HA!)! So here we are in December, and here are some of the things I’m currently LOVING!
#1 – Silk Dark Chocolate Peppermint Almond Creamer
First of all YUM! It is December so I’m all in on all things Holiday, why should our creamer be any different? This creamer is almond based, so dairy free. It is dark chocolate and peppermint. I feel like I don’t need to say anything else! If you are a coffee lover, like myself, I highly suggest switching out your go-to creamer for this Holiday delight! You will not be sorry!
#2 – ALL CHRISTMAS MUSIC!
I LOVE music. It fills our home most mornings and evenings. We have a household rule that you must dance and sing while cooking dinner each night. When you combine the love of music with the love of Christmas, WATCH OUT PEOPLE, we are getting JOLLY up in here! I don’t have a particular genre of Christmas music that I listen to, just simply listen to it all.
I have a collection of Christmas CDs (yes, CDs are still a thing – or I’m old…) that come out each year when we take out our Christmas decorations. We look forward to the sounds of the season each year! I’ve created a Spotify playlist titled “Wildly You Christmas” for your listening pleasure! You’re welcome!
#3 – Athleisure, ok joggers, ok let’s be honest…sweatpants!
Three cheers to the person that created “athleisure” or made it a thing that was acceptable when out and about, am I right?! I appreciate a cute pair of joggers that I can pair with a sweatshirt for a comfy night at home, or throw on with some cute athletic shoes and a denim jacket when heading out to run errands! The Paisley Pod frequently carries various jogger styles - check them out here!
#4 – Kind Lips Chapstick
It’s that time of year… the time for dry skin, dry eyes, and dry lips! Currently, in my bag is Kind Lips Chapstick, sweet mint flavor (all the flavors are super yummy!). I love Kind Lips chapstick for multiple reasons, but I’ll give you two:
The ingredients. These yummy chapsticks are made with toxic free, organic ingredients. They are made in the USA, gluten free, cruelty free, and organic. I’M IN!
They are a company with a mission! Kind Lips donates 20% of all sales to anti-bullying organizations. And well, I think that’s great!
You can find these awesome chapsticks at kindlips.com or we also sell them at my boutique. Check them out here.
#5 – A holiday mug, or to be honest, mugs in general!
My favorite Holiday Mug – purchased at Target.
You may notice, a couple of my favorite things revolve around coffee… please, no judgements. I LOVE coffee! I admittedly also have a small obsession with coffee mugs. I believe that you should have seasonal mugs, travel mugs, every day mugs, special occasion mugs, mugs that make you happy, mugs that make you giggle, mugs for camping, and mugs for at home… Basically, I believe that you can never have too many mugs!
My favorite travel mug is by SWIG! It keeps my hot things hot for over three hours, has a closeable lid to help me not to spill, AND unlike many other travel mugs, it has a handle! Get your fill of Swig mugs at The Paisley Pod (the link is to my favorite design we currently have in store)!
There it is. My current top 5 faves!
There are so many other things I am LOVING at all times (for instance – Christmas movies!), but we will save the rest for another time! Leave a comment and let me know what your current favorite things are!
Until next time… Stay Wild my friends, and have a Merry Christmas!
