We hope you are enjoying this holiday week and all that accompanies it – time with friends & family, plenty of sweets, and that constant hum of holiday tunes. We know we’re loving every minute! However, if you need a little distraction from the festivities… we’ve got you covered. Here are our favorite finds this week:

This mulled wine syrup from Honestly YUM sounds like the best ice cream topping… maybe ever?

Apartment Therapy did a round up of the BEST cleaning tips of 2014. We’ll be applying all of these to our list New Year’s resolutions!

In case you’re freezing (like us), this fashion blog post will warm you right up. We love Blair’s sunny Dolce & Gabbana dress – and are a little jealous of the locale, too!

This style profile on Charlotte Barnes is fabulous! (We always love the content on La Dolce Vita, and this is no exception.)

Finally, we’re sort of refusing to let the holidays slip away too quickly. Here’s a way to help them stick around a little longer!
