I'm thrilled that Christmas is coming soon! It's my favorite holiday. I adore everything that Christmas embodies: being with family and friends, staying cozy at home, giving gifts, charity -- I love it all. All the lights and sparkly things don't hurt either.

I'm a little bummed that Samuel and I will not be spending Christmas in California with my family. We will be somewhere in Asia. It doesn't feel like the holidays with the warm weather and the lack of Christmas decorations. But nonetheless, we'll celebrate on our own, and you can bet that I'll be blasting all the Christmas music until the day comes!

I have had such an exceptional year and Chic in Cali has grown so much. I am thankful for each and every single one of my readers and followers. All your support means more to me than I can say. To show my appreciation, I am hosting a holiday giveaway filled with my favorite items from my gift guides. Plus, the winner will be winning an additional $500.

Note: the $500 can be wired via PayPal or an e-gift card of your choice.
