#essiebuff DIY – A Blue & White Christmas

For years I have wanted to go with a blue and white theme when decorating for the holidays and this year was finally the year that I took the plunge and went with it! After we chopped down our tree and got it home and set up I just couldn’t wait to finally put up the decorations. For the past few months I have been accumulating blue, white, and silver items wherever I went knowing that I was sticking with this theme and going full throttle ahead with no stopping. Take a peek below to see how my tree looks all decorated and for a DIY on the wreath that I made to match!

Books books & more books

As most of you who follow my blog know my true love is nail polish, however another one of my loves and something else that you can find me doing in my spare time (when I’m not deciding my next polish color) is reading. Reading has been something that I have loved to do since a young age and as I’ve gotten older the love has only grown stronger. Below are some of the books I have read over the past few months whether they be picks from my work Book Club or books that I have read on my own! I hope that you enjoy this post just as much as I enjoyed writing it!


Polish worn is essie ‘Mooning’ and the cute model in the background is Duchess.

O Christmas Tree

Growing up in Vermont means that chopping down your own tree down for Christmas just becomes second nature. This year we went to Whites Tree Farm up in Jericho to chop down the most beautiful tree that I have ever seen! Whites is the cutest little tree farm and I just love going there because not only do they have some of the best trees around but they also have wreaths, bows, maple treats, locally made ornaments, and of course hot chocolate! Below are some photos of my tree excursion this year and of the buffalo plaid nails that I wore while we chopped down our tree!


Colors used were essie ‘Off Tropic’ and ‘Always Fully Charged’.

Living in Vermont you become accustomed to cold weather pretty quickly and start to find things to help you get through the cold months. One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to cook up something warm in the crock pot! I recently made a meatball tortellini soup and wanted to share the easy recipe with you in case you also need something to keep you warm this season!
