Holiday Cheer

With Thanksgiving behind us, I guess it's appropriate to start spreading some holiday cheer!

(Also, the College Prepster household is super excited because this year is a TRUE Chrismukkah.)

I'm not the biggest fan of in-your-face holiday decorations or articles of clothing, but I think little tidbits of cheer are the perfect way to celebrate.  Kate Spade has done a remarkable job with tiny jewelry and little hints of fun in their holiday line.  And vineyard vines has some really fun products!

This Curling Ribbon gold ring is actually pretty big in person, but it's too much fun.  It's the right ring for a holiday party, a dinner celebration, and even just running around as Santa's Little Helper.  Every glance down at your hand will remind you of the fun of gift giving!

Metallic headbands are fun.  But metallic headbands with curling ribbon bows are even better.  Pull your hair back into a sleek up-do on snowy nights and use the headband to secure those little hairs around your face.  Tease your hair at the crown of your head to give a little extra va-va-voom.

Buy the pack of three holiday barrettes and give one to your best friend, one to your sister, and keep one for yourself.  (Or keep them all for yourself... I won't tell anyone!)  Keep your favorite one in the pocket of your handbag.  When you're at a party and decide to dance the night away, clip one in your hair to keep layers out of your face!

When you're heading to a holiday party, don't arrive empty handed!  Pick up your favorite festive bottle of wine.  Don't hand it over naked though!!!  Oh no, even wine bottles must dress their best for parties.  The Woody and Tree pattern is a classic.

These vineyard vines tie ornaments are just too cute.  If you can track down the Lilly Pulitzer Oh, Shift! Ornaments, you'll have the preppiest tree on the block.  (These are also a great way to wrap up a present!)
