Blogmas Day 15 | Simple Holiday Bedroom Decorations

A week ago or so I shared with you all the decorations around my living room and hallways but today I wanted to show the few festive items in my bedroom. I purchased an adorable wooden advent calendar from Target recently that features colored drawers filled with chocolate pieces. Advent calendars are so much fun during Christmas time because I love counting down the days until the holiday! The other holiday decoration I have on my desk is a two foot Christmas tree I also got from Target. The tree was pre-lit and was only $17, which is a huge bargain! I had miniature ornaments that I hung around the tree and a festive Topshop plaid scarf that I wrapped underneath. Of course, I also had to make a football ornament my own tree topper to add my spin on the holiday classic. The last "decoration" is my RG3 signed football in all its glory behind the Christmas tree. You definitely can't have Christmas without football!

Blogmas Day 14 | Christmas Nails

There's officially nine days until Christmas and I couldn't be any more excited! To prepare myself for the holiday festivities, I decided to paint my nails in a classic red that's perfect for Christmas time. The polish I used is the Julep Nail Color in the shade Myrtle. Julep's polishes are really creamy and come with a large brush that makes painting my nails quick and easy. The finish is glossy and opaque with one-two coats! I love how classic the shade is and how beautiful it will look paired with a smoky eye and a black dress for Christmas dinner. Although the formulation isn't amazing, I love using it because it's such a gorgeous shade with a high shine finish.
