Gift Guide: For Mom

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

*Click to SHOP

Happy Wednesday loves!

Today I am continuing the gift guide series. AND next on the list is mom. So, I've rounded up some of my favorite picks for mom and why some are just easier to get than others. I don't know about you but when I have to guess my Moms size... well I'd rather not. That's why I like gifts for mom that are one-size fits all- no fuzz. 

This is what I typically like to gift my mom. She never really buys anything for herself and a large handbag purchase is never on her list. So on special occasions I like to surprise her with something extra special. I also lean toward neutral colors in handbags as gifts, because it is fail proof. Also, they match with everything. I particularly love this black bag, which is roomy enough to hold it ALL and the design is simple and timeless. Also, all of these handbags are 30% off (which rarely go on sale).

Who doesn't love to cuddle up during the cold Fall and Winter months? Which, is why a nice soft blanket makes such a great gift: guaranteed it is used Christmas day! This is also one of those gifts where you don't have to worry about sizing- easy and done. 

This is another one of those one-size fits all gifts. Plus, sparkle is always a good idea for any lady in your life. For mom I like the options to customize jewelry that has initials or customs engravings on it. It makes it that much more personal. I like this long initial necklace because initial jewelry doesn't usually come in longer versions. 

These are great because the sizing is general enough where it is not compromising. Usually pajamas come loose (that's the point in being comfy while you sleep, right!?) and even if they are a little big, they will be comfortable. 

This are an inexpensive gift that goes a long way- they smell great and last for months. Plus, great scents are universally loved.

Another one-size fits all gift. They are such a general gift, yet most everyone loves a great comfy scarf. Traditional prints like plaids are great, but a solid colors are more classic. I personally love the tassel trim on this one, which is a fun twist on a simple knit shawl.

Like I mentioned in the previous gift guide, beauty sets are great this time a year. From makeup to lotion sets- the value you get with this holiday sets is great! Makeup sets usually come with several colors, so you don't even have to stress on which color your mom will like best. She can choose for self. 

I personally love this mug because it serves as a holiday clearly says "mom, I love you". Nuff said. They are also a simple gesture that is sure to make her smile every time she makes her coffee...or tea... or hot chocolate. 

Anyhow, I hope these suggestions help. I know I get overwhelmed when shopping for others. So if I don't have a game plan- I shut down. Shopping in stores is the worst for me. I hate lines, and so many people stress me out- so this year I really am going to skip it and shop online. AND I plan on doing way before just in case if it arrives in the mail and for some reason I change my mind, I have enough time to figure something else out. 

Hope you like it, love it!

Bestie Gift Guide

Happy Holiday Countdown!!

I finally dawned on me... Thanksgiving is this Thursday. And that mean Christmas will roll around super quick. 

So... today I am sharing some of my favorite gift ideas for your bestie, cousin, or sister !! 

So this one is on the top of my list for your bestie because these items are cute and functional. Who doesn't need an extra phone charger and tech gloves that you allow you to use your phone. 

This item will be in almost all my gift guides because it's fail proof. One side does fit all, and everyone loves a warm scarf that they can snuggle in. 

Give gifts that sparkle, and keep your eyes looking oh so cute! I also really love this #Bestie Cuff.. you and your bestie need this! 

This is a great time of year to snag some great value sets. I love shopping beauty packs because they are usually come in a variety of colors or scents. 

I decided to include this because it is just to darn cute. I also love that card holders can replace a wallet when you are carrying a smaller bag and a traditional wallet can be bulky. 

Ok, so can we talk about how rare it is to actually print photos nowadays?! I remember when I would anxiously wait for film to be developed to see pictures. However, now phones have taken over and pictures are only posted online. Well this is a cute way to treasure moments- snap a pic and keep if forever. 

This is also a fail proof gift. I personally love new cups ... it's an addiction. But for gifts they can also be such a cute way to hold gift cards. 

So this is a cute way to plan a getaway with your bestie. Gift this with a pre-determined signed a save the date. And everyone needs a planner for the new year...time to fill it up and get excited about new adventures together!!

So what better way to secure a workout partner! I have such a hard time committing to working out... so if you are planning a new years resolution that is work out related, this is a great way to find a work out buddy :)

Hope you like it, love it!

How to Dress For Fall In Cali

Monday, November 14, 2016

Vest- PBJ Boutique c/o | Tee- Lush | Booties- Steve Madden | Jeans- Express | Sunnies- Le Spec | Bag- Rebecca Minkoff

Happy New Week everyone.

SOoo can we talk about this outrageously hot weather?! 
Well that is at least here in SoCal, it still really warm. And, most days it's impossible to dress for Fall because it's back to shorts and sandals. So today I am sharing this long sweater vest, that I have been obsessed with. I love how lightweight it is, and the sleeveless silhouette is perfect to look like your wearing layers but not feeling like you are. It's a creative battle most days to put together an outfit that isn't outright this simple vest is a great alternative that can be worn almost over anything and instantly transform any outfit for Fall. 

I've also rounded up some other vest options...perfect for light layering and to wear through these warm, warm Fall and Winter months. 

Hope you like it, love it!

Color Crushing: Lavender

Friday, November 11, 2016

Outfit #1 - Bomber Jacket, Jeans, Booties, Bag, Sunnies, Jewelry
Outfit #2 - Sweater, Jeans, Bag, Booties, Sunnies 

Happy Friday Loves!!

Okay, so I know what your thinking-- Lavander for Fall?! Well yes, a pastel for Fall is just what I have been craving as of late.

This pale shade of lavender is such a great way to add color into your Fall closet. I love the shade mixed with neutral accessories- this makes the over all outfit seem warm and casual. 

For todays first outfit I am wearing a satin two tone bomber jacket (that is actually such a surprise in the quality). It has a nice lining and the two fabrics work so well together- a nice twist on the traditional bomber design. I just love how casual this outfit it is. Its's perfect for everyday errands or for casual weekends.

The second outfit is more cozy. This comfy knit screams "get me a hot chocolate" haha. But seriously I just want to snuggle in this one. Plus, it's a great way to transition the off the shoulder trend into sweaters this Fall. 

Additionally, these items are on major sale, and incredibly affordable. Such good buys and for the price, the quality is quite good. 

Hope you like it, love it!
