Sugar Paper Los Angeles for Target - Christmas Haul

If you have never heard of Sugar Paper, you are missing out! They have the cutest, modern paper goods! They have been teaming up with Target to create affordable, chic planners and calendars for the last few years. This holiday season, they also came out with a whole collection of Christmas items! I was SO thrilled to see this at my local Target and decided that I must Sugar Paper theme my gifts for this year! They have some other color options available, but I decided to go with a Red, Mint, Gold, Black, and White scheme. I am a sucker for anything gold foiled and these products do not disappoint in that department. Here are the fun things I bought! SugarPaper-5

The awesome thing about these three adorable bags is that while they are great for the holiday season, you can also use them year round for birthday gifts, baby showers, etc. I love the modern look of them -- totally beats Santa Claus printed paper in my book! (Sorry, Santa!)


I love the simplicity of this pretty white and gold bag. The material it is made out of feels very high quality, and at only $3.00 per bag, you really can't beat that!


So many fun prints available in this wrapping paper collection! Like the three small bags I shared above, the gold stripe and mint & gold dot papers can be used any time of the year! I love the sweet little mittens on the white paper. They are minimal, but make a statement, and I have never seen anything quite like them. I also loved the pop of red this cute "Merry Christmas" paper tied into the look. I like that it added that tasteful, yet classic Christmas feel.


These gold trimmed white boxes are so cute, I might just keep them for myself to put keepsakes in. They are sturdy and easily stackable, perfect to just tie a pretty bow onto and call it a day.


So long to losing labels year after year and having to buy new ones every Christmas. I love that this is a label dispenser in the style of a tape dispenser. The labels stay neatly inside until you are ready to use them so they are always protected. This is another great product in this line because it is not holiday specific!


I will have to get a pretty gold pen to write in my best wannabe-calligrapher's handwriting on these little tags! These will be great for presents with bows or ribbon! I also had to get these adorable gift toppers that look like tiny ornaments. I will probably use these for a holiday girls' night idea that I am stirring up!


Overall, I am super impressed with everything this collection has to offer! I hope they decide to do this year after year. If you love luxe paper goods, but don't want to break the bank wrapping presents this, don't walk to your nearest Target now! Or you can see what they still have available online here.

My Favorite Things: Ankle Boots

I have been LOVING wearing ankle boots this fall! They are so comfortable and really help bring an outfit to the next level. I personally do not wear high heels on a regular basis, so if the heel of this style of boot scares you, don't let it! Here are some cute, affordable (and I do mean affordable!) options that I found and wanted to share!

AztecBootI love the Aztec print of this boot! This type of pattern is very "in" right now and these go really well with a cute denim dress and a sun hat...flea market trip anyone? And you won't believe the price of these!

LuLusBlueThese navy boots have a fringe accent that I just adore! I love these moody rock n' roll booties and think they would be perfect to wear to a concert. I will definitely be ordering these for myself soon!

BlackCowboyThese cowboy boots are a fun alternative to the traditional mid-calf boot. Although I do think these are great for fall, they would also be perfect for summer BBQs or music festivals. Fun tip: Target also offers these in other colors!

JCPenneyRedThe color of these boots...I can't even handle it! This color is called "Bordeaux" and I love it! I honestly don't know if I could pick a more perfect Fall shoe color. These might be a bit trickier to wear, but I think the perfect outfit for these would be a black sundress, (yes, you can wear a sundress in California at this time of year) with a denim jacket over it. If you're really feeling festive you could even add a cute floppy style hat like this one!

BrownForever21The rich brown of these boots makes me want to throw on a flannel shirt and run through some fall leaves while holding a pumpkin. If only we had actual fall leaves and cold weather in California...sigh. But seriously, I love the warm, cozy feeling I get just from looking at these!

BrownFringeBootI actually own these boots and I am obsessed with them! They go so well with dresses! If you couldn't tell, I'm really into fringe right now, so the bohemian feel of these is right up my alley. Again, you can't beat the price on these either!

BlackHMChic. Cool. Fierce. I love these! The sharp details paired with a smooth finish make for an ultra sophisticated, yet edgy boot that would work amazingly well for a night on the town! These would be stunning with an all black outfit.
