2017 Winter Favorites

December 28, 2017


Now that Christmas is over (*sob*), I thought it would be fun to make a list of my favorite everything from this season. I'd love to know what your favorites were! Let me know in the comments.

Favorite Store
Marshalls
I went to Marshalls a million times this season. They had so many amazing decor pieces at the best prices. Incidentally, a lot of my Instagram pictures came from Marshalls.

Favorite Ornament

Target's Ugly Sweater Birds
I bought a bunch of these and I'm so in love with them. Not only do they match my colorful decor theme, but they have tiny little antlers with tiny little functioning bells and I just cannot deal.

Favorite Mug

Target's Reindeer Pattern Mug
I love this one so much. The pattern is textured, which is a really nice touch, and it also means I can't stop touching the mug whenever I'm drinking tea.

Favorite Snow Globe

Marshalls' Village with Christmas Tree Snow Globe
I can't believe I didn't buy this one. I'm heartbroken. I went back for it when I realized how much I loved it, but it was gone. GONE! Is it crazy to hope that it will be back next year? I'll be looking for it.

Favorite Snack

Boom Chicka Pop's Hot Cocoa and Marshmallow Kettle Corn
This thing is addictive. It's DELICIOUS and I can't get enough, which is why I'm forbidding myself to buy another bag. Hopefully it's coming back next year!

Favorite Candle

Bath & Body Works' Hot Cocoa & Cream
I bought four of these and I wish I had bought more because they're sold out. They smell like what I think hot cocoa should taste like but never does. It's amazing and I've been burning it all season!

Favorite Book

A Lot Like Christmas by Connie Willis
I've read four Christmas books and three of them were not exactly my taste, but A Lot Like Christmas was amazing. It's a collection of short stories set around Christmas. Each story has an element of supernatural/Sci-Fi that puts an interesting spin on the classic values of Christmas stories, which makes for a super fun, unique read. And there's a good amount of humor, too! I'm definitely going to read more from this author.

Favorite Song

Christmas Eve by Kelly Clarkson
I'm in love with Kelly Clarkson's Christmas album, and I was ecstatic to hear that she came up with a brand new Christmas song this year. It definitely did not disappoint! It has all the makings of a classic.

Favorite TV Movie

Finding Santa from Hallmark Channel
Full disclosure: I haven't had time to watch ALL the new Christmas TV movies because, as you know, there were 61 of them. SIXTY-ONE! But of the 25 or so I've watched so far, Finding Santa is one of my favorites. The chemistry between the actors was great, and the storyline was fairly unique and cute. I'm also a sucker for road-trip stories (I don't know why), and this one happened to be one of them! Honorable mentions because it was hard to pick just one: A Bramble House Christmas, 12 Days of Giving, Christmas in Angel Falls.

Favorite Hollywood Movie
Better Watch Out
We were going to go see The Man Who Invented Christmas on the 24th, but for some inexplicable reason, they stopped showing it in theaters around December 20. I was also a little too busy for the past two months, and didn't take the time to go see the other Christmas movies in theaters, which means I only ended up seeing ONE new movie from the list: Better Watch Out. I actually thoroughly enjoyed it. It's not heavy in Christmas tones, but it's a damn good thriller. Lots of Christmas decorations though... does that count?
