The first snowfall of the season can be a magical thing, until reality sets in and you can no longer feel your finger tips. Still, there's a certain calm, serene beauty that comes with a fresh dusting of the stuff — especially when you're nestled indoors, warm drink in hand and impervious to the elements. That's when you can dream of all things merry and bright, rather than worry about hypothermia claiming your extremities... because let's face it, that would be enough to kill anyone's holiday buzz.

So being that I'm indoors and all nice and toasty, my mind is able to grasp such complexities as the holiday shopping list, which will be kept nice and short this year. It's not that I'm having a Scrooge moment or anything, I'm just more interested in buying a few quality pieces for my loved ones rather than a bunch of frivolous bits that they likely will have forgotten about come Easter (not the best use of those hard earned dollars of ours!). Jewelry is always a go-to for me when it comes to shopping for the lovely ladies in my life, and I know there are a few people on my list that would flip for a piece or two from Trollbeads this year. They just offer so many affordable, yet beautifully made pieces (like my copper bangle that I'm obsessed with), and if your name is Vickie's mom, you should probably stop reading this post right now... no reason. xx
