My favorite time of the year is just around the corner – 14 days to be exact! There’s something about all the lights, giant decorated trees, the smell of pine, Christmas fleas and movies that make me look forward to December every single year. I love finding the perfect gift for my friends and family – it’s almost like a little scavenger hunt – and having an excuse to go shopping.

I had the opportunity to get together with some fellow Denver bloggers to talk all things Christmas during The Networking Shoot. We sipped on wine and coffee while (I hogged all the cheese and meat and) we chatted about life, gift ideas and Christmas in Colorado.
Such a fun night with Bethan of Sips With Style, Alex of Feelin Haute and Danielle of According to D. (Be sure to follow them on Instagram!) I’m so glad and thankful our hostess Katie Leigh, who is also the lovely photographer, hosted this night!
First of all, let’s talk cheese. I’ve never met a cheese board I didn’t like. I’ve never met a cheese board I wanted to hog all to myself until now. I’m so excited to introduce you to a Denver-based artisan cheese and salumi shop: Cheese+Provisions. If you’re local, be sure to swing by their shop in Sunnyside. You can pick up your own artisan platter, attend one of their classes (perfect girls night!) or even join their monthly cheese club. Don’t live here? It’s all gouda, you can even shop online!

I can tell you from experience, Pearl Street Lights candles smell amazing. This one in particular is my favorite – maybe it’s because I love mint chocolate, but it’s a fresh smell that fills up your room. This is a perfect Secret Santa gift, a hostess gift or your parents. Each candle is signed by the person who hand-poured them with 100% soy wax, finished with a wooden wick. Be sure to grab one… two… and another one for yourself!
Raise your (digital) hand if you love sunglasses or know someone that just can’t have enough. I’m guessing that’s 99.9% of you reading this right now! Revo Sunglasses offer polarized lenses in every shape, frame color, materials and lens color.
Alex skis and I snowboard, so we are pretty excited about these Revo goggles. Give us (and the skier/boarder in your life) some fresh pow and these goggles and we’re off to mountains to enjoy the slopes!
Everyone knows I can’t start my day without cup of joe… so you know I’ve had my fair share of coffee. Whiskey Barrel Coffee needs to be in your morning routine or the perfect gift for the coffee enthusiast in your life. This bourbon barrel aged coffee has a very distinct yet smooth whiskey flavor – thanks to their master roasters who handle this process manually!
Wine in one hand, coffee in the other – I couldn’t be happier…
…or could I?
