I can’t believe Christmas is over & the holiday season is coming to a close. The period before Christmas, is my favorite time of the year so when the time comes to take down the decorations & stop listening to Christmas music, I get in such a funk. This year was so busy too, as many of you know I just graduated from college so moving back to CT & finishing up finals occupied most of my December nights. Overall I wasn’t able to make it into New York to see the Christmas Tree, which is my favorite Christmas tradition & I wasn’t able to make it into Boston for ice skating. Andddd…I still haven’t seen the Christmas lights in CT, so I just kind of feel like I missed out on a lot of Christmas festivities (& I absolutely hate that feeling). However I still have New Years & that gives me a little extra time to give out gifts, sing Christmas carols and bake Christmas cookies.

It’s been almost two months since my last serendipity post, so we have a lot to catch up on (like the opening of my own TCC store!). I love taking this time to fill you all in on the little things, & take a second to look back on the month. A lot has changed & I’m so excited for what is next. Thank you to each & every TCC reader, I’m so thankful for you all & love that you enjoy spending time with me (it makes me so so soo happy).

Sooo let’s get to it & take a look at what I did over December…

today insta copy 2On December 17th, I arrived in CT & was greeted by the best welcoming crew ever; which was made up of my dad, two sisters & boyfriend Matt. My mom held down the fort and surprised me with this lovely Free People sweater now 50% off! Since being home, I’ve also enjoyed boxing up each & every one of your TCC Mug orders :)! I’m currently ending my night with a hot cup of green tea in my TCC New England mug.

My favorite Christmas dessert is raspberry pie & I even love eating it for breakfast, especially with a large cup of black coffee #perfection. Everyone that lives with me understands that I think pie is also a suitable breakfast because why not start your day off on a delicious note.

Once I got home I was able to spend a lot of time reuniting with my family, This is a picture of my sister Sarah and I, from yesterday hanging out by the fire & trying to stay warm. I love this new green & navy scarf I got for Christmas.

If you follow me on snapchat (aubreyrose740) than you already know, I’ve officially adopted a kitten. I’m actually currently writing this post with her on my lap (she is sleeping & I’m trying to type really lightly without waking her). Her name is Eloise & she was the best spontaneous decision I’ve made.

This winter I’ve been obsessed with hot cocoa & hazelnut coffee. It’s the perfect way to warm up & get cozy. I hope everyone has enjoyed the opening of The Coastal Confidence at Home Store this past month, it took a lot of planning and I spent a lot of time looking at the content you all loved. I hope you guys are excited to see the new designs coming next month & email me if you have anything specific you want to see.

I got extra festive this holiday season with Wildfox jumpers. I’m obsessed with Wildfox’s soft jumper fabric & whimsical take on fashion. I got more than my moneys worth on this jumper. If you are looking for a cute gift for any girlfriend, sister, roommate, etc…Wildfox is your golden ticket.

  1. I hope you had a wonderful holiday! Even though you didn’t get to do some of your usual traditions you always have next year to look forward to 🙂 this past month was a bit different for me too since I was extremely sick. Congrats on graduating though and can’t wait to see more New Year’s looks!
