a very merry christmas

It may be a little late in the day but I wanted to wish anyone and everyone a Merry Christmas! I hope everyone got to spend some quality time with their loved ones and that there was minimal stress involved.

Pinning is a Habit {for Pinners like me}

Since I was first introduced to Pinterest in high school it has quickly become one of my favorite social networking websites. It’s just a perfect way to entertain yourself, whether you have over an hour or just a few minutes of free time. You can find things you like or ideas for projects as well as stalk friends’ pages to find the perfect Christmas gift. You can also avoid it for a week and not be overwhelmed by notifications, or have your sister hounding you to “go like her pic”.

I’ve pinned almost 5,000 things on Pinterest and that number grows everyday because its the perfect way to waste those 5 minutes when you’re waiting on your friend to meet you for lunch  or procrastinate doing homework. I thought I’d share a few of my favorite Pinterest finds and this week in the spirit of the holidays I’d thought I’d make it Christmas themed.

1. Christmas Mason Jars.

These are super cute and can be used as easy gifts for the many Secret Santa and White Elephant events that occur during the season.

2. Tacky Christmas Skirt

I love tacky Christmas sweaters but I think I love this skirt even more. It inspires me to go buy a cheap skirt to replicate it and maybe make it even more tacky by pairing it with a Christmas sweater.

3. Reindeer Cupcakes

Anyone who knows me can tell you that I love making cupcakes so when I saw this one Pinterest I immediately pinned it for future use. It’s cute, festive and looks like a super simple way to decorate cupcakes.

4. Spiced White Hot Chocolate

Who doesn’t love to curl up on the couch, watch a cheesy Christmas movie and sip from a mug of hot chocolate? My roommates and I gave this a try after I pinned it and it was delicious. Plus it’s made in a crock pot which I love using because it makes everything easier.

5. Fun Decor

Decorating for christmas is always a fun event, our family usually does it every year on Black Friday. This canvas is fun, cute and I can’t resist anything that adds a “y’all” to it, my favorite wine glass we own says “Merry Christmas Y’all”, plus it has glitter and I am always up for using glitter in any project.

These are my top pins for this week and some of my favorite Christmas finds. If you want to browse my Pins or follow me on Pinterest here’s the link to my page: http://www.pinterest.com/xoxohaley/
