My Stocking: Scavengenius

1. necklace: I'm not very much into horoscope and this kind of things, but I could be if that meant finding this taurus necklace inside my stocking on December 25th! The charm is just so cute, I love it!
2. polaroid cameraI'm crazy about taking pictures, with both my iPhone and my real camera. But I never get to print any of my pictures... I have a vintage Polaroid camera, but unfortunately it doesn't work properly anymore. This one would live in my bag so I could not only keep snapping pictures everywhere I go but also have them in print instantaneously!
3. boarding pass: A boarding pass to anywhere warm would pretty much be one of the best gifts! Winter in Boston can be though, specially on this Brazilian girl. If I could go somewhere warm for just a few days in February, I would be so very happy and it would make the next freezing months a little more bearable.
4. cashmere stoleI recently discovered Cuyana, and I love their "Fewer, better things" philosophy. I've been trying really hard to live up to it and this cashmere stole would fit great in my currant wardrobe and help keep me warm during the upcoming freezing months here in Boston.
5. wall knobIs it weird to have this on my list? Maybe just a little? I remember growing up and hearing all the married ladies saying they would be so mad if they got gifts for the house for their birthdays or Christmas. I love gifts for the house and since we're in this organizational spree, these cute knobs would be great on our bedroom wall for bags and coats.

Thanks, Ana, for sharing your stocking!

My Stocking: Pretty Pieces

Today, Lauren from Pretty Pieces shares what is in her Chrismukkah stocking.

Merry Chrismukkah everyone! Ever since I started celebrating Christmas with my bf and his family, I've looked forward to those little stocking stuffers. There are always such great gift sets of many of my favorite products, so I always make sure to ask for ones like the Bare Minerals kissing booth lip gloss set or the L'Occitane hand cream set. Holiday special editions are another favorite and this year's Bobbi Brown eye palette is on point. All the festive holiday candles have the best scents like this vanilla snowflake one from Bath & Body Works. Lastly, I've been obsessed with dark green this season, so these earrings from Kendra Scott would be perfect.

My Stocking: Pop & Circumstance

Today's My Stocking is from Becky behind Pop & Circumstance. Check out her shop of affordable vintage finds.

Stockings are one of my favorite part of the holiday! Small gifts are fun to wrap, to give, and to receive, and you can get a little more creative than with big presents. This year I'm keeping my wish list a bit on the woodsy side. Here's what's on my list...


1. Tree in a JarVessel Candle Co's "Tree in a Jar" is still my favorite holiday candle to date. It's crisp, fresh, and makes the whole house smell wonderful. Better yet...it's handmade here in Boston by Sarah and Ari, the duo behind Vessel Candle Co. Shopping local is the best! Their candles are available at Crompton Collective in Worcester or in their etsy shop. 
2. Buffalo Check Wool Zip Top PouchOh man - I'm a sucker for buffalo plaid. If I see something in the classic red and white check pattern, in most cases it gets immediately added to the wish list. This little wool pouch from C. Wonder is the perfect size to corral your small accessories and cary as is, or toss into a larger purse. 
3. Twisted Twig Measuring SpoonsWho could resist this cute little measuring set? I love when household items that are purely functional are beautifully designed as well. This would also make a wonderful hostess gift. Tis' the season! 
4. Custom Leather Luggage TagI got married at the end of August and am looking for an excuse to add my new monogram to everything. This hand-stamped tag fits the bill! It's a simple way to brand your bag or suitcase. 
5. Appalachian Mountain Club Huts "Gift Certificate"The AMC doesn't actually offer gift certificates, but a little cash to be put towards an overnight stay in one of their huts is high on my list this year. While it's great to have physical presents to open on Christmas Day, experiences tend to be priceless and way more memorable. And what could be better to look forward to than a spring hike and overnight mountain stay?

My Stocking: Elizabeth Crane Swartz

It's that time of year again! I had fun last year rounding up my stocking stuffer picks for everyone else but this year, I'm stuffing this stocking with things I'd love to get. (hint hint)
a couple of weeks ago I had a fun night at my local west elm store embroidering a felted stocking for my sweet pup Fenway. this West Elm striped stocking would be another keepsake I'd hang by my chimney with care.
speaking of stripes, you can't really tell but this classic, wear with EVERYTHING, striped shirt from Joe Fresh is sequined. you heard me: sequined.
while we're talking about sparkly things, this RMS Beauty 'Living Luminizer' is, hands down, the best and safest beauty 'trick' you'll ever find and it's the perfect gift for ALL the women on your list. trust me on this. (PS: if you're local to Boston, go check out Follain's South End shop. you're welcome.)
I have a thing for the color teal. and velvet. so when I saw these pumps from the H&M sister store '& Other Stories' I knew we were a match made in heaven. I would wear these with a classic pencil skirt AND with my favorite distressed jeans. basically, I would wear them with everything.
this railroad spike cuff from Giles & Brother has my name written all over it and it can be personalized so, technically, my name can be on it. (PS: did you know that Giles & Brother is the partnership of Jenna Lyon's girlfriend and her brother? you can read about them here which only makes me want this bracelet even more)
I'm the best at taking photos with my phone but the worst at printing out and framing them. if I had this portable smartphone printer, I pinky swear I would print, share and hang all those fabulous selfies memories.
FA LA LA LA LA!

Thanks, Elizabeth, for sharing! Check out her beautiful, hand painted jewelry too!
