Hot Chocolate from Whimsy & Spice

I first learned of this hot chocolate from a gorgeous photo on Instagram I saw Kayla of @this.little.wandering post! (See the photo here .) I mean, with a photo like that, who wouldn't inquire about what she was drinking?! I totally had to. She told me that she'd been getting it from Whimsy & Spice every year which was funny because I'd been following them on Instagram for a long time and never knew they made/sold any products (I guess I didn't pay a ton of attention to their profile simply because their photos are so lovely and seem to speak for themselves!)


I struck up a conversation with Jenna and we talked about a few things including the products in their shop, balancing work like and raising kids, and photography. She was so sweet, she sent me the Earl Grey Hot Chocolate to try, along with some artisanal marshmallows (the cardamom was my favorite pairing for this blend!) And let me just tell you: This is the very most unique and lovely cup of chocolate I've ever had! Ever - in the history of ever. I normally drink spiced hot chocolate (which they also sell and I love) but this truly was a game changer. I've just about finished the whole tin in less than a week; needless to say, I headed back for more and also indulged in the spiced hot chocolate as well!


I do hope you head on over and take a peek at all of their gourmet goods they sell. The hot chocolate and mallows make perfect gifts, even stocking stuffers for the holidays. These will be on rotation every year for me!

You can find them at their website Whimsy & Spice and on Instagram at @whimsyandspice. Cheers to a quite lovely and tastefully delicious holiday season!

Coziest Knit Socks from Ruke

I've been gifted this lovely pair of socks from Ruke and they are so warm and comfy! Is it a sign that you know you're getting older when you add socks to your wishlist for the holidays? Maybe so, maybe not but these really would be a perfect gift for anyone that appreciates that warm cozy feeling you can only get in the cold months of winter. The kind of feeling that you layer in all the comfiest and prettiest knitwear you can find, cuddle up to watch a movie with your family or read a book by candlelight!

Paired my new favorite socks with a few good reads. Can socks be bookish?

The price point on these socks are excellent but if you're keen on knitting, you can also download patterns right from their website which is linked above.

You can also visit their Instagram feed here to view more lovely photos of their socks and knitwear.

I highly recommend these if you're a cozy homebody in the winter months!


Chasing Windmills Merino Wool Pajamas Available at CLOTH

I bought this pair of pajamas for Silas just as the season was starting to shift into fall. We used to have a lot of different pajamas for Silas but now these are his main ones. We do have others when it's time to do laundry but in this case, and in many cases I find the older I get, less is more. We only wash these once a week and because Silas mostly dislikes to be covered up, they're the perfect pajamas for the cold climate!

You can buy these Chasing Windmills pajamas over at CLOTH, just click on the link and keep your babies warm!


Hobbs Farm Alphabet Cards

I wanted to share these alphabet cards with you all if you haven't seen me post them already on Instagram. I think they're a perfectly lovely gift for a special kiddo in your life! The photos in these cards are breathtaking and the kids are enthralled with them, making them want to learn more! I purchased these for Silas a few months ago from CLOTH and he loves putting them together, saying the letters, and what the image depicts! Instead of all toys this holiday season, why not go for something educational as well?



The "I" card is Sila's favorite because it is an amazingly delicious looking photo of ice cream. Everything in this set is so creative. I hope you all love them, too!
