Friday Five


The holidays are just around the corner! And I’m loving all the gift guides, DIY projects, delicious recipes, holiday outfits and decoration posts out there! I’m Ileana from Novelstyle, a fashion and lifestyle blog filled with outfit ideas, cute tips, recipes and my adorable pug Lemon. I grew up in Argentina (with a summer Christmas) and my favorite thing during the holidays is the snow!

These are some of my favorite posts from this week!



This is such a fun gift guide filled with gorgeous home decor and must have items. I’m absolutely loving the tic-tac-toe game and the waffle maker! Visit Samantha’s blog Gold Coast Girl for amazing gift guides, recipes and the prettiest baby shower pics (those mini pancakes are so cute!)



I love snow… but that doesn’t mean I do not miss those fun Christmas parties by the pool! And seeing the gorgeous pictures from Dannie’s honeymoon have me wishing for a holiday escapade to this breathtaking resort!

ON INVESTMENT SHOES by Kelly in the City


Looking for the most beautiful holiday shoes? These Ferragamo shoes are so gorgeous and now part of my designer wishlist!  But what I love the most is this beautiful outfit that Kelly put together! Used to seeing tons of dressy outfit looks, I find this outfit to be the perfect one for a get together with friends or a day out shopping for Christmas gifts!

SIX EGG POUND CAKE by Honey and Birch


Baking is such an important part of the holidays! To be honest, we did not bake much in 93F Buenos Aires, but since I moved I have really enjoyed baking cookies and all kinds of delicious treats! And this year I’m adding this pound cake to my baking list! Visit Jenny’s blog for some delicious (and very easy!) recipes!

HOLIDAY BUCKET LIST by A Hundred Tiny Wishes


This the season… to make lists! Who doesn’t love making lists during the Holidays? They can either be about your New Year’s resolutions, gift ideas for those you love, gift ideas for those you do not love so much, recipes for that special dinner, or things you need to hide before your family arrives. No matter what the list is about, the holiday season is filled with them! And just like Tabitha’s, my favorite one to make is the bucket list filled with all those things I want to do before the year is over! I definitely got some awesome ideas from hers – Visit Tabitha’s blog for more awesome inspiration and tips 🙂
