Happy December, friends! I brought in the arrival of the season last night by writing Christmas cards (if you would like one, DM me your address on Instagram!) and watching The Holiday (aka one of the  b e s t  Christmas movies ever). The tree, which is especially glittery this year, is up and I couldn't be more ready to bake to my heart's desire. In celebration of the holidays, I wanted to share what I'm loving this season:

What My Heart Beats For

1. An excuse to dress up! I couldn't resist the heels (pictured above) from White House Black Market. They are so beautiful and perfect for the holidays.

2. Eloise at Christmastime. I remember adoring this movie when it first aired and I've loved it ever since. It is so full of innocence and adventure.

3. Gift-giving. One of my absolute favorite things is surprising loved ones with thoughtful gifts. I already found the perfect presents for a couple of my friends which I can't wait for them to open.

4. The Lizzie McGuire Christmas episodes. Need I say more?

5. The fact that New Year's is right around the corner. New beginnings are always exciting... I've already been daydreaming up the possibilities 2018 may hold. 

6. The holiday decor that seems to be everywhere ✨

7. Choosing a new planner. I have my eye on this one!

8. Baking & Sweets.

9. Cozy weather. It's not too often that Southern California experiences cozy weather. In fact, it was 92 degrees on Thanksgiving just a week ago. I'm looking forward to bundling up when winter arrives.

10. The feeling of a full heart. This time of year is about giving & loving. The moments slow down a little bit when you take the time to reflect on what you're most thankful for ❤️

Wishing you a beautiful season ❄️
