Days 5-8

Oh what wonderful things I have received this advent season. Now it’s finally time to share. You’ll see that these items have already been opened, but in the future I’ll also show you what it looked liked all bundled up. I’ve realized that Christian has essential sent me Christmas in a box. By the end of this my house will be covered stem to stern in holiday warmth.

day 5- Owl plug-in with Mahogany Teakwood

day 5- Owl plug-in with Mahogany Teakwood

Day 5 was an adorable scented plug-in. I know, those words don’t often go together. This gilded owl is perfect for the holidays. The scent that accompanied the owl was Mahogany Teakwood. It essentially smells like a man. A hot one. Who recently went surfing but then took a shower because he wanted to be fresh when you saw him. And he is fresh. So wintery fresh…..ok, you get it. It’s a sexy man smell. I do not mind my house smelling like this.

day 6- holiday swizzlers with a dog

day 6- holiday swizzlers with a dog

Day 6 was two sets of tinsely swizzel sticks. Christian knows my love of dinner parties. Last year was a kitchy retro dinner, complete baked olive cheese bites, christmas plaid, and a considerable number of dark wooden platters. Did I mention I made myself a Christmas sweater that lights up? These swizzlers will come in handy for whatever party we do this year.

Day 7 was 3 mini wintry candles from Bath and Body Works. They all smell amazing. Christian knows the power of seasonal scent. Even in Florida you can make it feel like winter with the right touches. These 3 do the trick. (photo to come shortly)

day 8- Jason Wu red ball

day 8- set of 3 red Jason Wu ornaments

Day 8 was 3 more gorgeous Jason Wu Christmas ornaments. This time it was a set of all red bulbs. Again, these are just beautiful. Sturdy, classic, they’ll be on my tree for years to come.

If you are interested in seeing what I sent my bestie Christian in the advent swap, clickposhluxeswish.blogspot.com  Her blog is currently focused on this advent adventure, but afterwards will become an incredible lifestyle blog. Honestly I can’t wait. I’m also going to plug her pinterest. It’s amazing. Christian has this incredible ability to capture exactly what’s going on, be it in fashion or food trends. Her seasonal boards capture the exact mood of that time of year. I always look forward to her pinnings. Check it www.pinterest.com/christianfstone
