Beautiful Music

 
Seriously, if you have not heard this yet listen to it right now. A group of Berklee College students flash mobbed the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and performed "O Holy Night" a few weeks ago. I can't remember the last time I heard something so beautiful. I think it's a great reminder of this season and the kind, gentle, and beautiful nature of the human spirit. What talented young men and women.

The Sunday Currently, volume 8.

Wearing...
Jay's sweatpants and a Bruins sweatshirt. Lazy Sunday night attire ftw.

Birchbox

Yesterday I received my first Birchbox! Growing up I was never really into makeup but in the past year or two my interest has grown and I've gotten a little more adventurous in terms of the products I use or the techniques I'll try. But when you're still trying to figure out what to add to your growing beauty collection or what the best product is it can quickly get expensive and time consuming to search. That's where Birchbox comes in. It's is the perfect way to expand your beauty options without making a big commitment.


Here's what was in this month's box:


So far I've only tried the ChapStick but it's already a favorite! Does such a good  keeping your lips soft and hydrated, such a must this time of year. I'll share updates about the other products as I try them but for now I want to know: do subscribe to Birchbox? Are you happy with it? What are your favorite beauty products lately? 

Leave a comment below or tweet me!

Kate Spade Derby Street Grand Debut

Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the grand debut of the new Kate Spade store at the Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham. It was a fun night and the staff at the store are so great! Here are some pictures from the night:

Outside the store

Handbags Galore!

Macarons and San Pellegrino

Love the stark white layout and the peonies!

I purchased some jewelry and a Beau Bag but ended up returning the Beau for this:

#Xmas Jammies

 

If you haven't seen this Christmas video from the Holderness family yet click play now! A holiday spin on Will Smith's "Miami" #Xmas Jammies is so funny and adorable. Love this family for being such good sports and putting it all out there. If only some other families did this and we could put an end to annual year in review letters? 

Check out the greenroom here for more!
