2. There are a ton of holiday events happening all over the 805 this weekend and here are just a few of our faves…

65th Annual Oxnard Christmas Tree Lighting Fri 12/4 from 5:30-8pm
63rd Annual Santa Barbara Holiday Parade Fri 12/4 from 8:30-8:30pm
Ventura Winter Wine Walk & Street Fair Sat 12/5- event sold out, but you can attend the street fair from 12-8pm
Los Olivos Olde Fashioned Christmas Sat 12/5 from 12-8pm
Janss Marketplace Hannukah Festival Sun 12/6 from 4-6pm

3. There’s really nothing better than a holiday party and shopping is there? We are super excited about the A Beautiful Mess Holiday Event tonight in Agoura Hills at 6:30pm celebrating their 5 year anniversary {and there will be cocktails, giveaways & of course shopping!}.

Anthropologie in The Oaks Mall is also having a little holiday event celebrating those with November and December birthdays tonight from 5-8pm {we once stumbled upon this event and were all too delighted to accept free champagne and cookies while shopping (in the sale section of course!)}.

4. My little baby girl {not so baby anymore} turned 1 this Thanksgiving and I got this adorable banner and flower crown for her birthday party and fell in love.  #shopsmall #cantstopetsyshopping #cantbelievemybabyisone

reese is one

5. OK, I know I said there’s nothing better than a holiday party (with free cocktails) and shopping, but I also think there is nothing better than cozy-ing up on the couch to watch one of my fave Christmas movies with a delicious holiday cocktail.  And speaking of holiday cocktails, Nicole recently posted about her favorite holiday cocktails hereWhat are some of your faves? Please share!

Tis the Season - Christmas Trees- LL805

As always, we hope you have a great weekend in the 805! This is our favorite time of year, not only because of Christmas lights, and our homes smelling of Christmas trees, but getting together with friends and family and reflecting on the joy of the season.

So don’t forget to tag us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter with some of your favorite holiday traditions @LocalLove805 #LL805 #spreadthelove
