Merry Christmas Eve!

Christmas Eve is my favorite night of the year. Since I can remember, my family has thrown a party on Christmas Eve with all of our family friends who don't have family coming into town. 

The party has grown larger over the years, and as the kids have grown up, it's become more.... spirited (in a good way, of course). 

Last year, the party ended with a family beer pong tournament, at which my mother was surprisingly good. 

So my house is a whirlwind of cooking, cleaning, and runs to the liquor store today. But I wanted to take time to share my 5 Christmas Eve essentials! 


01. A little sparkle. Every party outfit needs a little shimmer and sparkle. This Loren Hope necklace is so versatile and beautiful, it's sure to make a statement with every outfit!

02. Festive Nail Polish. This year, I am obsessed with Essie's She's Pampered, Crocadilly, and Good as Gold

03. Chic cold weather accessories. Protect your hands (and festive mani) from the cold and travel to your Christmas Eve destination in style with these Buffalo Check gloves from C. Wonder.

04. Party Shoes! While heels are great, I love these Stubbs and Wooton classics! You can dress them up or wear them casually. Plus, if you're not the most coordinated individual (like me), these are much better dancing shoes!

05. PJs to wait for Santa in. I love LL Bean, bean boots, and these cotton flannel pajamas. The soft fabric and classic design will surely have visions of sugar plums dancing in your head in no time! 

Merry Christmas everyone! And God bless us, everyone!
