I'm usually a white shower curtain kind of girl, but these options from Anthropologie may have me singing a different tune. Why is it that Anthro always seems to have what I didn't know I need? Sigh.

Happy Monday, friends! If a weekend ever flew by, this was it. I worked on Saturday, took a three hour nap, went to church and shopped a little on Sunday and poof! the weekend was gone. I've done the bare minimum when it comes to Christmas shopping and I'm starting to get a little antsy. If you're finished, please don't tell me!
These photos were snapped just before Thanksgiving dinner and we had just a bit of snow left on the ground. I threw a puffer vest on before heading out but for the sake of pictures, I wanted you to see this cute sweater. My dad noticed its ears first and thought it was a bunny - yes, that's my life. Don't forget to enter the two giveaways going on right now - Reeds Jewelers here and Lisi Lerch here!
My GroopDealz picks for this week are all about building your arm party - they have some fabulous (and always affordable) options right now! Stock up for all those holiday party outfits!

I'm sad to say that today is the last round of our fall North v. South collaboration. I love working with these ladies and can't get enough of the inspiration they give me every week when I see how they've styled our chosen trend. Today it's all about lace (and some very fancy earrings!). This dress is one of my favorites and I'm starting to run out of ways to style it - last seen here with leopard heels. In addition to today's lace looks, we've partnered with Lisi Lerch to style her gorgeous Margo earrings, and, I must say, they're perfect for every holiday party you have on your calendar. Read on for more photos and a little giveaway (yes, another one!) just for you!
Outfit: Everything in this outfit is so old or not available except the scarf and earrings.
Lisi Lerch is graciously offering one reader of the North v. South bloggers a pair of Margo earrings - you pick the color! Simply follow the steps below to enter! We'll announce the winner next Friday!

I love jewelry as much as anyone - you all surely know that by now! So I was thrilled when Reeds Jewelers wanted to partner with me to bring you some gift ideas for those extra special people in your life. In my opinion, an all-jewelry wish list is perfectly acceptable. Reeds has beautiful pieces (everything from personalized to pearls to platinum) for every person on your list - from mom to sister to little girl. Many of their pieces are currently on sale and they'll continue to mark down prices through the holidays. Shipping is always free, too - no limit! I've rounded up a few picks below in some of my favorite trends.
And a treat just for you, Reeds is offering one lucky Julie Leah reader the rose gold bangle and earrings! Simply follow the steps in the Rafflecopter below to enter. I'll announce the winner next Thursday! I'll be partnering with Reeds again in a couple weeks for another fun feature - be on the lookout!

As I'm sure you've gathered from previous posts, my mantle and hearth are one of my favorite spots in my home to decorate. After pulling the trigger on the blush pink wall back in the spring, I find it to be such a cheery focal point in my townhouse. For Christmas, I wanted something unique and bright and fun. If I could leave those pearl lights up year-round you better believe I would! I believe that blending holiday decorations in with your current pieces is always the way to go as opposed to completely redecorating. I kept my framed prints, vases, and stacks of magazines in the mix and simply added festive touches. As requested on instagram, I'll be sharing two DIY posts soon with details on my banner and pink and green topiaries. Until then, I hope you're inspired to think outside the box with your holiday decorations!

Today I'm excited to be partnering with Dove to share some winter skin care tips just as we're ushering in the bitter cold of December. A lot of people never think to change their products or habits as the season changes, however, I find myself focusing more attention on my skin care routine in the winter. A couple weeks ago, Dove sent over their Deep Moisture Body Wash with NutriumMoisture for me to add to my everyday routine. I have to say I love it, and combined with the other tips below, my skin doesn't even know it's twenty degrees outside! I know some of the tips seem really simple (like #2) but I promise making just a few simple changes in your daily skin care will make all the difference. I highly recommend adding Dove's Deep Moisture Body Wash and other moisture-rich products to your line up and applying them more often - definitely twice a day. Check out the other Dove products here and take the quiz to see which body wash is perfect for you!
