We only have 4 more weeks until Christmas! I couldn't be more stoked! Last friday - Black Friday! - I donned my ugly Christmas sweater and headed out for some sales. I don't think I scored too big except at Micheal's, but I did buy a pretty gold passport cover from Forever21. Surprisingly the lines in F21 weren't that long and I was booping around when the shiny gold caught my eye. I scooped it up and now will be traveling the world with some bling......not really. But it did get me thinking about all the gold things I've been digging recently. It is the holidays so gold is all over!

1. A Nice Gold Watch
While you don't have drop a lot for a nice gold watch, it doesn't hurt to! I don't wear a watch too often so a watch from Charming Charlie or from Forever21 doesn't get beat up too much. If you're a casual watch wearer, a $25 or less one will do just fine!
Scrapbook.com has a ton of gold paper clips. I found these feather ones to be unique and would add a fun touch to your stationery supply. They even have these little gold trees! How sweet for the holidays!
3. Gold Washi
I love the foiled look every little thing has now. Hobby Lobby has a ton of foiled gold washi added to their washi section and Michael's has some foiled washi for Christmas. This skinny washi is great for divisions in your planner and can be used in the vertical Erin Condren Planner to divide up the weekends (ps use this link to create a new account and save $10!)
4. A Gold Planner
I was going to try to get my hands on a gold Webster's Pages Color Crush planner for this December but I was unable to find one for sale until a Blitsy sale on Black Friday (Blitsy is a great flash sale style site for crafting and planner supplies!). So that one is on its way to me but if you're looking for something in stock right now, try for the Gold Filofax Saffiano. My first Filofax was a Saffiano and that got me hooked on ring planners! I currently am loving the Original Filofax - it's the button that really gets me! But I'm currently using a the Gold Dot Lilac Kikki K I unboxed earlier this year.
For a very affordable price you can deck out your passport and your luggage in gilded gold. The inside of this passport holder is a bright silver and has a few little things you can use as pockets for other travel documents. I think this luggage tag will look super cute on my purple luggage. When we went to Korea there was a purple bag that looked nearly exactly like mine. So I need something else now to make it stand out!
6. Glitter Scrapbook Paper
This paper pack from the Heidi Swapp Marquee Love collection is the bomb. I love it! I used the gold glitter paper to decorate a pen for my December planner and these would be great dividers or even backgrounds for the popular shaker dashboards right now!
This set are my favorite affordable brushes from Amazon. I love the variety of brushes you get and the all are great quality for the price. This is a repurchase for me - even though they last a long time, they are so affordable if I feel I may need another foundation brush I just pick up a set. (Plus Amazon Prime is amazing!)
So there you have it - all that glitters is gold! I'm loving the gilded look 365 days a year - not just around the holidays!
