Friday Round Up

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM
TGIF for real!! As much as I wish the days away I'm not ready for Christmas to come and go! I love having my house decorated and love watching Christmas movies all the time. It's not over yet so I'm going to try to savor the moment!

~Tonight is my family Christmas party at my house. This is the second year we've had the party and I look forward to it so much. Here's a sample of the what's on the menu:

How cute are these?!

and the ridiculously easiest fudge you've ever had. It's tasty too!

~Did you watch the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show? I did and have for years now. It's one of those things I look forward to during the Holiday season. I know, I know, why would you want to subject yourself to watching skinny bitches looking gorgeous. I'll tell you why. First of all I've always been envious of models, I mean you just have to look pretty, get your picture taken and you make big money?, sign me up. I also follow all those girls on Instagram and Twitter so I feel like I know them. Stalker status for sure. Either way, there's nothing wrong with women supporting women, even if you are secretly hoping one of them will trip down the runway :) 

~Blake Lively is a superhuman pregnant woman and I plan to copy everything she's wearing when I get pregnant. 

Are we sure she didn't just stuff a basketball under there?

~If you think you've seen enough prettiness to handle, just look at Amal and George Clooney's wedding picture.
It's so pretty I think I want to frame it in my house.

~This week I went to an event at a new store here in Charleston called Candlefish with a bunch of other Charleston bloggers.

They have candles galore, neat gifts and offer candle making classes. 

It's actually owned by the same people who started Rewined candles. We all got to make our own candles and pick our own scents for the candles. 

My buddy Jillian and I

All the bloggers in front of the Library of candles.

So far Charleston is the only location but I foresee it really taking off and expanding to bigger cities. If you're ever visiting Charleston, this is definitely one store I wouldn't pass on. 

Candlefish is offering 20% off of any class in 2014-2015 with the code "CHASBLOGGER14". The code expires December 31, 2014 so buy a coupon now even if you don't have a date in mind! Click here to book a class!

Linking up with Amanda!

  1. l literally laughed out loud when you said you wanted to frame their wedding picture in your house - I thought the same thing when I saw the extra photos shared!!! Pigs in a blanket - yes in any way shape or a wreath so perfect!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the party tonight!! xo

  2. lol i hope to see george and amal's wedding photo framed in your house next week ;) have fun at your christmas party tonight!! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  3. Ok of course I have to start with the food... love that pigs in a blanket wreath! I could eat the whole thing! And I agree, Blake is superhuman. No one should look that amazing pregnant, it isn't fair. And totally jealous you guys get to make candles! SO fun! Happy Friday!

  4. Their wedding picture is pure gorgeousness! The candle making sounds like SO much fun. I'm obsessed with candles so looking at the pictures, I'd know I'd be a kid in a candy store!

  5. Love the pigs in the blanket wreath, our family loves them! Blake looks so good pregnant it is not even normal. I have very few pics of me pregnant and that was a conscious choice lol. The candle making sounds like a blast! I would love to do that! xo

  6. Aw so bummed I missed that candlemaking class, that shop looks so pretty! Is it weird that I'm guessing Blake is due around the same time as me and I'm excited about it? haha Have fun this weekend and let me know if you want any help for next wkd!

  7. Blake Lively is crushing pregnancy style! I love the wreath of pigs in a blanket.

  8. The pigs in the blanket wreath is adorable. Blake Lively looks amazing!! That candle store looks like so much fun.

  9. i laughed so hard at 'It's so pretty I think I want to frame it in my house'
    seriously though how unfair is it that blake lively looks so amazing? now that you mention it, it does suspiciously look like as basketball. what is her secret i wonder.

  10. OMG that fudge! I need it. I totally want Blake's style when I'm pregnant...heck I want it now.

  11. Blake with the bike in the background...I can't even... wow! Yay for tonight! So glad I know what you're making because I'm still not sure haha. See you soon lovely ;)

  12. I mean honestly! How is she wearing those 5 inch heels and pregnant??? I am bowing down to her. I thought she was perfect before but now I'm like borderline obsessed! I wish I lived closer to y'all! That looks like such a fun event! Plus maybe someone could help me with DIY's.....I'll provide the wine!

    Thanks so much for linking up!!! Hope you have a great weekend! xoxo

  13. Had such a great time meeting you on Wednesday night!! It was so much fun - love that store!! Hope to see you around soon :) xoxo

  14. Hope your family party went well and you had a great weekend! Blake Lively is the most beautiful pregnant person I have ever seen. Don't get me started on her maternity style... so amazing!!! Amal Clooney is gorgeous! I think she's so classy. I wrote about her once in a Friday post too! Candlefish looks so fun! I wish we had cool stuff like that around me.
