Week Re-Cap

The Flatirons looking magical all covered in snow. 
This weekend was so fun! Bean visited and we took on Boulder/Denver. On Friday we drove up to Boulder, which was covered in a blanket of snow, hiked a bit and then went on a tour of Celestial Seasonings where we participated in a marketing study and got free tea! Then we had afternoon tea at the Boulder Teahouse - absolutely beautiful, everyone should visit! Friday night we grabbed dinner with Lauren and Blair at my new favorite Denver restaurant, Steuben's. Saturday we slept in, grabbed brunch went to a Christmas market and visited the popup bar. Sunday we slept in again, had brunch, grabbed coffee, visited a huge Christmas store and took Serena to the airport. If you want to see all of it in video form, check out the vlogmas page. Earlier this week I went shopping in downtown Littleton, which is super cute! This weekend I'm going to chill, maybe so some holiday themed things and get ready for my parents arrival on Monday! - xoxo darling, Hayden
Taste of Denmark has the best pastries. 
A snow bean.
We took a free tour of Celestial Seasonings and they had tons of tea samples for us to try. 
Also, are we rocking those or what?
Friday afternoon tea at the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse.
Look at that beautiful ceiling! 
It was delicious! The artichoke purses were the highlight.
Comment down below if Serena looks like the Girl with the Pearl earring. 
Adorable present from the teahouse. 
Friday night dinner with two of my Denver friends and Bean at Steuben's. 
Which, let me say, is delicious. We had the Nashville hot chicken and it was ahhhmazing. 
Brunch at Le Peep in Littleton. 

Downtown Denver looking real cute. 
On Saturday Serena and I visited the Denver Christkindl Market downtown.
We got some mulled wine in the cutest little cups that I now make
 my own mulled wine in. 

Miracle Pop-Up Bar is one of my favorite holiday traditions, but dang 
the one in my Denver was insane! Still, Serena and I loved it. 
Cutest photo wall. 
*me, photobombing Serena taking a photo for my Instagram.
We saw some middle schoolers taking this photo and 
thought it was so cute...so we copied it. 
Union Station is all lit up for the holidays. 
Serena and I baked a camembert, made mulled wine and baked 
some of those great cookies that are so bad they're good. 
The French Press in Belmar. 
Those biscuits were covered in cheese and a chipotle sauce. 
The craziest Christmas store in Colorado...maybe the world, St. Nick's. 
Born.2.Bake in downtown Littleton. 
The cutest lil Christmas tree cupcake.
A relaxing morning, I miss having these so much!

The New Year with Paperless Post

Back in June I got the chance to work with Paperless Post and they recently contacted me wanting to do some more work. Now y'all know I love them. Their cards are absolutely adorable and I love the concept of being eco-friendly by using e-cards. Instead of cutting down more trees, let's send beautifully crafted e-cards to one another. Throwing a party? Send an e-card! Want to wish your aunt happy birthday? Send an e-card? Want to tell everyone to have a happy new year? SEND AN E-CARD!! Paperless Post makes it easy, all you have to do is choose your cards, buy some coins (most cards are only 2 coins!) and then you're on your way. Each card comes fully animated so when your friends/family/co-workers receive them they do a little show and dance. I love them. 
Want me to send YOU an e-card from Paperless Post so you can see it in action? Comment down below! 
Since it's already a little too late for you to send out holiday cards I thought I would do a round-up of a few of my favorite New Years cards for y'all. Each of these has my official stamp of approval. I love the color schemes and the designs...did y'all know you can get Kate Spade & Rifle Paper Co. e-cards?! I love each of these and I'm thinking of sending them to all of my closest friends. 2019 is going to be an epic year, I'm sure of it and there is no better way to kick it off than by wishing those near and dear to your heart to have an awesome time. 
 Confetti 2019 - Just a simple, straightforward 2019 card, but I love the confetti detailing.
 Hope Peace Cookies - Kate Spade does it again with overall cuteness. 
 2019 Black, Gold - Love the font on this one! 
 Fireworks - This might be my favorite. I love the buildings and the color scheme. 
Toast to the New Year - I would send this to all of my besties. 
 Pink Floral 2019 - Just a pretty way to say happy new year.
 Auld Lang Syne - Love the colors! 
 Retro 2019 - This is super fun! 
Gold & Black Firework 2019 - A classic, great as a family card. 
Grey Countdown - Would be perfect for the men in our lives. 
Pink & Red Countdown - I adore this one! 
Thank you to Paperless Post for sponsoring this post. #Ad

Quotes of the Week

Happy Monday! This weekend was incredibly fun but man do I need another weekend to recover. I'm three cups of coffee in at work and I still feel like a bit of a zombie. If you haven't been following along with Vlogmas (which if you aren't, what are you doing?!) you can catch up here. Bean came to visit this weekend and we did lots of festive things and ate tons of food. This week is much more chill...not a ton planned as of yet...I'm sure that will change, I have a feeling I'll run a lot of errands. And a week from today my parents will be visiting for a week! I'm very excited about it. What have y'all been up to? - xoxo darling, Hayden
