When I was in middle school, my sister and I lived for the quizzes in YM and Seventeen magazines (I might be dating myself here). We used to hole up in my bedroom and circle As, Bs, and Cs to learn what kind of friend we were, what type of boy was right for our personalities, and so many more that I can't even remember.

Instead of a gift guide today, I'm sharing my actual Christmas wish list by popular request! These are the things that I put on the list that I sent to my family with hopes of some of them showing up under the tree come December 25th.
The first thing that I knew I wanted was a Smeg water kettle.
Last week, I took a little girls trip to Rhode Island with Eva (more on that later this week) and we arrived at The Ocean House just in time for the most beautiful sunset (circa 4pm #winterinnewengland). They gave us each a glass of sparkling wine upon arrival so we brought it promptly outside for some photos.
After Thanksgiving I'm all about turning my house into holiday central. We are never not playing Christmas music and everything feels so cheerful and festive. This year, I stepped up my holiday decor game by asking my friend Prudence, an interior designer, for some tips on how to make it a little more elevated than usual.
Happy Friday from Rhode Island! I'm here for a press trip with some friends and so excited about how festive it is.
One of my favorite holiday traditions that we do in my family is "secret stocking" where we draw names and have to fill a stocking with $100 worth of stocking stuffers for one adult in the family.
