Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I’m starting to feel a little more festive around here – staring at a little lit up tree in my office while I write this, and I lit my absolute favorite Hotel Lobby Holiday candle today, too. It’s the little things that start to make a difference to my mood and my holiday spirit! It’s actually a little surreal to me how close Christmas is now.

On to the favorites!

Wheelchair Barbie Ornament

I’ve been slowly building up my disabled ornament collection – I bought some from Target last year and earlier this year, too. This Wheelchair Fashionista Barbie ornament is my newest addition – I love it so much! It’s so cool that it’s part of the Hallmark Keepsake Collection ornaments along with the Holiday Barbies.

100 Notable Books of 2023

The New York Times rounded up this list of 100 notable books that were released this year. I love book lists like this – so many new titles to add to my book list, and some that have been on my list but I needed a little reminder about.

Madewell Gift Box

I didn’t realize that Madewell sold gift boxes – it definitely makes gifting a little bit easier! This one comes with a super soft, super fuzzy beanie, and a cult-famous candle – and better yet, it’s all part of a partnership with a nonprofit.

Olivia Rodrigo on Tiny Desk

I love Olivia Rodrigo’s music, and think she’s such a dynamic live performer, too! I loved watching her on her latest Tiny Desk concert – she did one before, but off-site at a DMV; this time she’s on site at the NPR offices. This made me wish even more badly that I had gotten tickets to her tour!

Velvet Bows

Within the last week, multiple friends have told me about the velvet bows they bought for the holidays! I’m finding myself very tempted – I love the double “tails” on this one, the festive red color on this one, the embellishments on these, and you can’t go wrong with this classic set.
