Hope you all had a perfect Christmas!

Now that Christmas is over, we've got the New Year to countdown to! New Year's Eve always gets me excited because it's a chance to start fresh and new. All those "I'll get around to doing more of that tomorrow" and "Someday I'll get that done" comes into play for real. I'm still coming up with my list of resolutions that I'll probably share with you all (because it'll motivate me to keep them if I publicize them) but I already have this gut feeling that 2015 will be a good year. Maybe because it's the Year of the Sheep and that's the same Zodiac year I was born in. :) Or maybe because I've got a lot of exciting plans in store. Either way, I know it's going to be a great one.

If you're one of those people (like me) who need a constant reminder of the New Year's Resolutions you've made, I've got the solution for you right here! A Daniel Wellington watch is the perfect New Year's gift for yourself (and others) to help you remind your fresh start! A watch is something you wear every day and every time you look down to check the time, it'll keep you on track to becoming the new you ;) Don't forget to use this holiday discount code to get 15% off your dW order: holiday_auteurariel

Have a great Monday everyone!
We're traveling back to Utah today--cross your fingers that our car doesn't break down again, haha.
No but for real guys. Send us good vibes.

Cheers.


Love, The Ugly Hamiltons.

Scarf: Forever 21
Boots: c/o Khombu

Despite my misleading post title, I am actually in Seattle (not California) this week for the holidays!

We almost didn't make the drive here from Provo, but a random act of kindness from a complete stranger made this trip possible and we couldn't be more blessed! I mentioned the gist of what happened on my Instagram, but I'll be posting the full-length story on here sometime in the new year. It's one of those stories that restores your faith in humanity.

Now back to the actual meaning behind today's post title: this pullover! As a fan of comfy sweaters, this Rebel Gypsy Pullover from Billabong fits into my wardrobe perfectly. The outline of the bear and California reference makes me dream of a warmer place, so that also helps a ton when I'm wearing it in below 50 degrees weather. Billabong has a variety of these pullovers, including a camo and striped design I absolutely love. Who wouldn't want to stay cozy in these cute sweaters this holiday season? :)

I'll be taking a break the rest of this week from my bloggy to celebrate the holidays with the family. I've got this year's Christmas card set up to post on Christmas day, but other than that, I'll be seeing you folks next week! Have a great holiday everyone!
