“Life in My Eyes” is a series that highlights my favorite things across entertainment, beauty products, and everything in between. Enjoy and please let me know anything that you’d recommend I check out in the comments section below! And now to December…

For this month’s list, some girlfriend’s and I got together to share all of our favorites. Because what’s better during the holidays than sharing favorite finds, laughter, and girl talk with some of the most kind, inspirational females I know? And here are some of the favorites we shared…
Favorite Jewelry: Bloom Jewelry
Lindsay Bloom is a local jewelry designer that has quickly become our newest addiction. Her pieces are always sophisticated and delicate, which means that they’re easy to layer and look at home mixing with other pieces previously in your collection. Plus, with Bloom’s price point being one that’s more affordable, you don’t need to feel guilty about buying these pieces as gifts for anniversaries or Valentine’s Day (*hint hint.*)
I absolutely adore the pieces within her collection that incorporate leather. They all still look classic and tasteful, while the leather tames the pieces down a bit for my more casual, everyday looks. The two pieces I’m wearing in these pictures are Bloom’s leather wrap hoops and leather u necklace.
Bloom’s pieces typically take around 1 week to process, but feel free to email Lindsay directly at [email protected] if you need a piece ASAP!
Favorite Skincare: Biossance
It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with everything hydrating when it comes to skincare. And the science behind this brand of skincare is too incredible to miss! All of their products are based around one special ingredient called “squalane.” This ingredient is a natural, plant-derived version of the moisture our skin makes naturally when we’re young. Pure genius put to work!
While I just started using their products, my favorites right now are their makeup remover cloths, which I use every night to leave my skin well hydrated and clean overnight, and their precious rose face oil, which is a perfect all in one serum that I’ve used regularly as a moisturizer and lip balm.

Favorite Accessory: Royal Scout and Co.
Lately, I’ve been adding faux fur to every look. A faux fur vest that I own has topped every sweater in my collection, and a faux fur keychain has been the main piece keeping me from losing all of my keys over the holidays. So when I saw the gorgeous quality and perfect neutral coloring of this Royal Scout Neck Wrap in Wolf, I was instantly hooked! It makes my everyday looks feel more luxe and polished, without having to put in too much extra effort.

Favorite Desserts: Yours Truly Cupcakes
Before getting together with the girls, I wasn’t familiar with Yours Truly, but now I’m so glad I have their information! These tasty treats looked picture perfect and tasted even more delicious. We enjoyed Rice Krispie Treat Pops, Snowflake Sugar Cookies, and (my personal favorite) Mini Cupcakes.
Between the edible glitter and the tiny, little marshmallows, not a single one of these treats was left by the end of the night!
Favorite Place to Shop: Cherry Creek Shopping Center
This gorgeous, 60’ Christmas tree is right outside of Cherry Creek Shopping Center near downtown Denver. While the tree and decorations are gorgeous, the shopping experience is even better. The mall is beautiful and I feel relaxed after leaving, rather than a usual, stress-filled holiday shopping experience. Plus, from Restoration Hardware Denver, to David Yurman, to J. Crew, this mall includes all of my favorite stores in one spot. Cherry Creek is definitely my favorite shopping location, and with all of these fantastic decorations, I’ll be stopping by as often as possible!
