Current Pre-Christmas Crushes

Look, I know it's not even Halloween yet, I get it.  You're not ready to see Christmas stuff yet.  But my God man, they need to stop sneaking it in my magazines or in my social media feed because you know mama's gonna be all over that!  So for you Halloweeners (ha!), you should probably skip this one.  It's not long though.  You know you kind of wanna peek.

I was scrolling my feed one day and this baby popped up from L'OCCITANE en Provence:

It's an advent calendar that is full of beauty products from them to count down to Christmas!  At $70, I'd never splurge on it for myself but how fun and it won't add calories to the waistline like chocolate advent calendars.  ;-)  How cool to have little travel sized stuff you can throw in your bag for vacays!

You all know my go-to store for Christmas is Pottery Barn and they're not disappointing!

I saw these Vintage Holly Berry Salad Plates and about squee'd myself!  MUST get these.  How cute would Christmas breakfast look on these!?

(Why can I already feel the Mr's gaze boring through my head saying "no more Christmas plates everrrrrrrrrrrrr!")

Ooh, ooh...Mr. Kot-tear (affiliate link) look at these Nostalgic Santa Tidbit Plates!  Perfect for portion control so I think I should get them.  HA!

And just in case I want to wrap up in a Christmas blankie, the Fair Isle Fur Pom Pom Throw would remind me of our first Christmas in Vermont!

I know any day now, they're going to drop even more Christmas goodness upon all of us so you'd better brace yourselves.  I'm sure I'll have another Christmas Crushes post but I had to share these few things that were getting me fired up for the season!

Do you do advent calendars?

  1. Are you guys going away for Christmas this year again? I never had an advent calendar but my sister in law says Aldis has the best. Have an outstanding week!

    1. Not this year but I'm hoping to do an every other year scenario so I know that we'll get the kind of Christmas we want. I'll have to check out Aldi's for sure! You too!

  2. I have done inexpensive advent calendars for my kiddo, but it's not a regular thing. The beauty product one is a cool idea, but $70 is out of my price range too.

    As a bone deep Halloweener (laugh all you want) I get tired of my holiday missing out just because it's 3 months before Christmas. It's not that I don't like Christmas and those decorations, it's just that I really really like Halloween. A local Family Dollar has already clearanced much of their Halloween stuff to make room for Christmas stuff.

    1. I just bought my advent calendar for the year. Sometimes we do well with them, other times we have to open a few days at a time.

      I don't blame you at all. You really have to start decorating for Halloween mid-Sept in order to get in ample time with the spooky stuff. Thanksgiving is the true bastard child of holidays though. They're lucky to get a pilgrim thrown in for good measure in October and then they're gone except for Hobby Lobby.

  3. I can't believe it's almost that time of year already. This year has flown by!

  4. These are cute crushes!!! I do advent calendars for the! We have a tree we hang with slots for biscuits and treats, and those two know right where it is and will sit and wait every morning after they potty outside. ROFL

    1. That is hilarious and you have to record that. I bet that is the cutest thing EVER!

  5. I do love a good Arnold Horshack reference. Go you!!
