Holiday Gift Guide 2018

Dec 16, 2018

It is crunch time if you are still shopping online for gifts! I have zero desire to head to any store this time of year so I made myself sit down with my computer yesterday and check off my list. Are you still shopping? Today is a great day to get it out of the way. I also noticed some sales going on that rival Black Friday deals.

Anthropolgie is offering 30% off everything!

I think this is the best sale I have ever seen from them. They are one of my favorite stores for kitchen, dining and entertaining items.

For Him

Men can be hard to shop for in my experience. I've rounded up more items than ever for them this this year. I'm really excited about the Banana Republic sale. They are offering 50% off everything except new items!

Electronics/For the Home

The Ninja Foodi is a gift I bought for my husband last month. Unfortunately, he found it and is already using it. It's a pressure cooker/instant pot, slow cooker and air fryer all in one. There are free recipe books if you have Kindle Unlimited. I included a Kindle Paperwhite again because it is still my favorite tech item besides my phone.

For Her

These are my favorite items I own or have seen in stores. The two pair of low heeled boots are the only ones I have been wearing this fall. I was able to walk around comfortably for hours in them on our trip to Charleston.

Happy Shopping!

Last Minute Christmas Gifts

Dec 14, 2017

If you want to order gifts online and have them delivered before Christmas, it's time to get shopping! I've got ideas for her, him and the home. Here are some of my favorite items I've had my eye on for those last few people on your list.

For Her

I love to give luxury items for Christmas. These YSL lipsticks look as pretty in their packaging as they do on your lips! Gift sets are great because regardless of coloring there's at least one that will look perfect. The rest of them I use for mixing colors. The brown-toned lipstick is great for minimizing pink. I mix my lip colors almost every single day.

Black quilting is a classic! I love these Hunter rain boots, and this handbag is so similar to a certain Chanel one I've had my eye on forever. However, it's beautiful in it's own right. I tried nude one on in the store and was in love with the leather.

These YSL aviators are so hot right now! I love my Ray-Bans, but I really wish I had waited before I bought them since these came out. I can have two pair of aviators, right? Get these before they sell out!

I'm still the only person without one of these pop sockets. I've always wanted one, but just never got around to buying it. I love the pink and black color on this one. It would make a great stocking stuffer!


For Him

I was on the hunt for cologne recently for my teen aged son. I fell in love with this Tom Ford Noir Extreme. The sales lady took me right over to it when I said I was looking for cologne. She knew what she was doing because out of everything I had smelled over the weekend it was by far my favorite. It was a little too old for my 15 year old, but it would be perfect for an older teen or adult.

Men just love Tumi. I don't get it, but they love it. Most of the luggage is very expensive, but this wallet is under $100.

All men need an electric razor. This Arc5 seems to be the hottest one right now.

The Amazon Echo! Get it for him, but also for you and everyone in the household. You can use it to ask the weather, turn on lights or music. The price point can't be beat either at around $30.


For the Home

I've done my research on coffee makers recently. I've come up with a favorite. This Saeco is a super automatic (just push a button to grind and brew). What separates this one from other super automatics? It has an integrated milk frother. If you like lattes and cappuccinos, this one will add the perfect amount of milk for you. There's no wand to figure out. The best part is you can remove the milk container and save it in your fridge for the next day. It also makes regular coffee and espresso, which are my husband's favorites.

I am a sucker for anything monogrammed. I love these personalized cutting boards and coffee cups. This candle smells amazing and looks beautiful on any surface. My husband got a set of knives last year after complaining constantly that ours didn't cut well. I have to agree he was right now that I've experienced a really sharp knife.


Holiday Gift Guide: So Cozy

Dec 5, 2017

I love everything cozy, which is why I own almost all of the items in this gift guide. I've also gifted many of them last Christmas. There are a few new things I've eyed in stores and put on my wish list for this year. Everything is linked below the pictures. 

This white sweater is the softest one I've ever owned. It's from Express, which is my favorite store for sweaters lately. It's also where I bought the pom pom socks below. They have amazing sales all the time, too.

The Pottery Barn robe is as soft as it is gorgeous. The pom pom throw is also from PB and comes in other colors. 

The gray PJ set is my absolute favorite brand, Honeydew Intimates. They are so soft and surprisingly affordable. 

These Ugg slippers are on my wish list! 


I have two items on here from last year, both by Barefoot Dreams. The robe now comes in a leopard print. I still wear the circle cardigan every single day so I had to add it. 

The short, white robe is on my wish list because I need something for warmer days and it's one of the prettiest I've seen. 

I also added something for the men. I'm in a house full of them and I noticed they aren't fond of anything that looks like pajamas. These gray lounge pants are comfy enough to sleep in, but can be worn outside as well. 

The black and white poncho is one I own. It's perfect for those cool nights outside, whether on the porch or at a football game. 

I have several pairs of Butter socks and wear them all the time. I love giving them as gifts. You can stick them in a cute Anthropologie coffee cup for a little something extra or as a stocking stuffer.

I love everything monogrammed! This throw is a bit more elegant and can go in any living room.
