The Best Movies To Watch This Christmas

By Annie Collins

 

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Cozy up with a blanket by the fire and pour yourself some hot chocolate...or wine! Get in the holiday spirit with these awesome holiday movies. Because who needs to battle the freezing temperatures when a blanket and the couch are so warm and inviting! Here are our favorites:

 

1. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Chevy Chase and The Griswold Family will have you laughing until next Christmas. So many quotable lines and hilarious scences.

 

 

2. A Christmas Story

Leg lamps and tounges getting stuck to poles...This is a classic Christmas comedy.

 

 

 

3. Elf

Will Ferrell is hysterical in this movie. Believing he is an elf, he travels from the North Pole to New York City in search of his boilogical father. Outrageously hilarious you will be laughing for days.

 

 

4. Home Alone

Filmed in Chicago, Home Alone is familiar and hilarious. Macauley Culkin lives every kids dream.

 

 

5. It's A Wonderful Life

This traditional holiday movie is an all time favorite for many. 

 

 

6. Love Actually

This star-packed cast leads multiple story lines. You'll love each one more than the last. You're sure to find a character to relate to.

 

 

7. Miracle On 34th Street

This heart-warming movie will get you in the spirit of believing. The original 1947 and the 1994 remake are both wondeful.

 

 

8. The Polar Express

A touching tale with a beautiful message, getting to the root of what Christmas is really about.

 

 

9.White Christmas

A timeless classic. Sing, dance, laugh and cry along with this sentimental story. Sisters, sisters....

 

 

10.The Holiday

Paralleled love stories, prompted by a home exchange, take place in Los Angeles and London. A cute flick with a great cast.

 

 

11. The Santa Clause

Imagine your dad morphing into Santa....That's what happens to Tim Allen in this 1994 film.

 

 

12. The Grinch

Jim Carey stars in this updated version of Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Funny for kids and adults.

Lokai: Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 

It's October again (already) and we are gearing up to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Unfortunately this is something that hits close to home for many of us. Fortunately we have a great support system & there are so many ways to show women currently struggling as well as survivors that we are here for them. We are all helping to fight the Breast Cancer battle, whether it be by walking 60 miles to raise money, or shopping for products that donate a portion of their proceeds to the cause, there are millions of us out here who have joined the fight!

Lokai is a brand that has taken the social media world by storm with over a million instagram followers (many of whom have celebrity status, including: Mila Kunis, Shay Mitchell, Gabrielle Union, Guliana Rancic, Emma Roberts, and several members of the Kardashian Klan!)

The original Lokai bracelet has two special beads. The black bead contains mud from the Dead Sea, and the white bead contains water from Mount Everest. These are the lowest and highest points on earth and the bracelet is a reminder that in your lowest times to find strength and have faith because things will always get better. It is also a reminder that during high points in life that we must remain humble and not forget the struggles we have endured. 

This is such a great message and daily reminder, we Goddesses just had to be a part of it!

Since receiving our first shipment, we have sold hundreds of these bracelets both in our boutiques and in our online shop.

THIS MONTH Lokai release their special limited edition PINK Lokai bracelet and a portion of their proceeds benefit charities in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Be sure to come in a and shop the Pink Lokai while you can because once they're gone, they're gone.

Meet The Designer: Tiffany Sparks

We had the chance to sit down with vintage jewelry designer Tiffany Sparks for a Q&A after our first trunk show together. Get to know her below and keep your eyes peeled for more from Tiffany Sparks & The Green Goddess Boutique soon!

What is your design inspiration?

I’m inspired by the bold glamour and individual expression 

of 1960’s and 1970’s fashion. Women were starting to use 

fashion to express their individuality and personality, and 

I love that! The hope is that my collection will inspire women 

to add a piece of originality to their own styling.

My inspiration stems back to my childhood, having been 

raised with very creative parents. My Mom worked in fashion 

and has an amazing collection of vintage Vogue’s and my 

Dad designs stores!

Where do you find the jewelry?

I’m an expert hunter! I have relationships with dealers 

across the country and have honed my eye so I know 

exactly what I’m looking for. I love the thrill of a good find!

How long have you been collecting?

I bought my first statement vintage necklace 5 years ago 

and have been hunting ever since. I’ve always loved wearing 

what’s unique and using accessories to express myself, and

 vintage does just that! I always know no one will have the 

same piece as me! 

Do you design or curate?

I design looks by curating groups of vintage pieces. The Collection features a lot of 

white and gold right now, but it’s ever changing because I’m always creating new 

groupings and when one piece sells, I’m hunting for the next. Each piece I find has soul, 

history and is one-of-a-kind or produced in very small quantities. I’ve always been drawn 

to 60’s and 70’s pieces because they are bold and glam! 

I’m also working on designing my own accessories. No matter what, the mission of the 

Tiffany Sparks Collection remains the same – pieces that allow women to express a bold, 

glam, and individual style.

Where do you sell the collection?

The Vintage Collection is sold at Green Goddess Boutique and on 

thegreengoddessboutique.com. I love what Green Goddess stands for, so it’s a natural fit.

How can I use these necklaces in my wardrobe?

I wear a lot of black so adding a pop of glam with a bold vintage necklace totally gives 

the outfit personality! You can pair my necklaces with anything you want from a 

simple tee, a structured look or a flowy kaftan or dress. The point is that you can 

make the look your own! Dress it up or dress it down and be confident creating 

your own signature style! There is no rule.

Tiffany Sparks in a few sentences:

The Tiffany Sparks Vintage Collection is bold, glam 1960’s and 1970’s 

statement pieces that express individual style. 

Your personal style:

From how I dress to the way I decorate, my style is modern glam meets vintage. I love black and white clothes and big, bold glam vintage accessories. At home, I like white and black walls with lots of gold, mirror and Lucite accessories.
