Enchant Christmas in DC – a fun date night!

When I was googling “Things to do this winter in DC” Enchant Christmas came up and I was in awe! If you’re local to the area or not far away to take a nice drive, you should! Carl and I attended last night and so did our friends Jarrett and Victoria. Thank you to The Brand Guild for the invite!

Everything from a 90,000 sq foot light maze to the Christmas market – there is a little something for everyone. Want hot chocolate or spiked? They got it! I would bundle up, it’s located outside in the MIDDLE of Nationals park, amazing right?

And yes, that’s a 100 foot tree! While going around the maze “The Great Search” you can locate and find Santa’s reindeer which have been placed throughout! They even hand you a little scratch card to mark each one off. The kids running around, loved it. It was so nice to see how much they loved it. Can’t wait for Xavier to get older and we can enjoy these things as a family.

We were invited to their VIP event from 6pm-8pm! Thankful for the little bits, gift swag and drinks! It was a nice treat to get warm and enjoy some of their food. They have a signature drink that is in a light bulb, it’s adorable – sadly I don’t have a photo but believe me, it’s super cute! You can also take the souvenir cup with you. Ps, the smores were AMAZING.

We walked around the Christmas Market and I found a couple items that I couldn’t pass up! How cute is this reindeer? I also picked up TWO of these Potpourri garlands, they smell like cinnamon, aka HEAVEN. Homemade too! Love finding good small business items. My mom will love the one I got her.

I hope you find time and head out to Enchanted DC – it’s a great date night idea or family time event! Also, bring ice skates if you have them, if not you can rent them there. The ice rink is gorgeous and a must!

Cozy season favorites!

From fall and winter fashion to the crisp, cool air and holiday festivities in between, this is my favorite time of year! I love curling up by the fire in my coziest clothes with my favorite book at the moment and a cup of hot cocoa. I’ve linked my favorite cozy finds to get you in the spirit of cozy weather and all would make great gifts for a girlfriend, Mom, sister, aunt, grandma, you name it! Everything I’ve linked is affordable and can be found at either Walmart or Target!

Mugs

Who doesn’t love a good mug? I’ve linked my favorites below and they’re all $5 or less.

This mug is from a local small business, shop HERE.

Pajamas and joggers

I swear I live in my PJ’s and sweatpants this time of year, especially since I work from home most of the time! My favorites are linked below.

Cozy tops and sweatshirts

Another favorite of mine this time of year, especially when it’s chilly inside and you’re sitting by the fire! I found some cozy ones and linked them below!

Candles!

Everyone loves candles. They make the room just feel cozier and they’re pretty in dim lighting. I also included a salt lamp that I have and love–they help to purify the air and are proven to bring a sense of calming!

Slippers and more cozy things

The rest of my cozy favorites, including slippers and socks are linked below!

What do you like to cozy up with this time of year?
