Happy Boxing Day!

Happy Boxing Day! We are spending Christmas with Mr.  Beau's family in Holland.  It's been a wonderful December full of drinks with friends, the nutcracker, walking around the festive city lights, decorating our flat, shopping, mulled wine and eggnog and after a busy year it was fun and needed.  I've taken this month for a little recharge and will see you next week. Hope you had a wonderful christmas! Xooxo Becca

Pretty Comfy

For the past two days I have been dealing with a yucky flu like cold. Sniffles, coughing, lots of water and too much tea. I spent the day laying on the couch wrapped up in layers watching past taped episodes of Downtown Abbey while coughing up a storm, it was lovely, haha. Wrapped up in leggings and layers of sweatshirts and my comfy scarf big scarf, made me think, how I would love to invest in some comfy soft warm new items. Cashmere, wool sweatpants, luxury teas served in pretty gold tea cups. Hey, it doesn't hurt to look pretty even though you are not feeling to hot, right? 

My recipe to getting better: 

Lots of hot tea. 1. LOV Organic Tea   2. Selfridges Mint Tea 

Tea must be served in a pretty mug of course. 3. Bombay Duck Polka Dot Mug

Not just a comfy hooded sweatshirt, but a cashmere one! 4. Cashmere Hoodie Gap

Drink LOADS of water 5. Water Bottle Bobble

Wrap yourself in the comfiest blanket ever 6. Fur Throw from George

Keep the chill away from every part of your body! 7. Cashmere Snood

Keep your feet warm and cute with some pretty slippers. 8. Velvet Boden Slippers

Forget about old yucky sweatpants or yoga pants, how about some knit ones! 8.H&M Fine Knit Sweatpants

Here is to hoping I feel better soon! xoxo - Becca

Wedding Wednesday: Gift Ideas for the Mrs.

It is no big secret that I LOVE a monogram, something personalized, whether it is a tray, a wine glass or better yet, jewelry! Being a newlywed myself this Christmas, with a new monogram, new initials, {crazy}, I would love some new personalized items! I also have a few girlfriends with a new monogram this year and I can't think of anything better to get them then something new and personalized and special! Here are a few of my favorite ideas for something special for the new Mrs. this Christmas. 

Mr. Beau….are you reading this? {wink. wink.} Or how about this DREAM item….hee hee hee.  A girl can DREAM, right, it's fun!;) {I'm laughing at myself!}

Beauty at Home with MILK Beauty

It is officially Christmas time! The first weekend of December, our tree is decorated and my Christmas playlist on Spotify is on repeat, I love this time of year! Even though I long for this season every year, it also can be a bit stressful and busy at some times, you too? Nights full of parties and get togethers with friends, stores that are constantly crowded and the feeling that starts to make you feeling run down {too much wine or too little sleep?}. In the middle of this, you still want to feel pretty and put together at the Christmas party, but with a busy schedule and a job that requires my full day, I start to think sometimes, how can I do all of this! A couple of weeks ago, I started thinking of how great it would be to relax at home and get a manicure and pedicure for the festive season, without having to run out of the office early before all the nail salons closed, enter MILK Beauty, Mobile Beauty. I've used their services for an at home massage before and I had never thought of using them for getting my nails done, well, I am SO glad I did!
