Christmas Gift Guide for Him

Hello lovelies!! Here is the post that many of you requested. The gift guide for the lucky men in your lives. Just like my gift guide for the ladies, I will provide you with some general ideas that range in price ranges. For most of us, men in general are easy to buy for. They’re into sports, or a techie, or arsty, or the love being at home. Let me share with you what I think are same great gift ideas.

wine tour

bar ware

bath & body care

game tickets

sports gear



art mediums

video games

Apple products

cooking classes

dvds & blurays


Those are my ideas to gift your men. If you know that they are looking for something more specific or you are really unsure as what to get them, giftcards are always a great idea. I personally think that giftcards or gift certificates are great gift ideas because while you know they like certain things they can go and pick out exactly what they like and be appreciative that you thought of them. That’s everything! If you’re still trying to figure out what to get the men in your life, feel free to send me an e-mail. I would love to help brainstorm gift ideas for you. Have a great day! I’ll see you in my next post.

Hello lovelies! Happy Day 1 of Blogmas!! Today I’m sharing you my picks for all the wonderful women in your life or even yourself. Everything ranging from stocking stuffers to some “big” items. The price ranges  I have to admit it’s December 1st and I have almost all of my shopping done. This year I want to make sure I spend time with my friends and family, doing fun things and making memories. Let’s jump into these great gift ideas!!

I know I didn’t share too many specific items, but I think that to go into something specific in each category is what I prefer not necessarily what would work for you or your loved ones. If you have any questions about something specific, leave it in the comments or send me a message. I would love to talk with you more one on one. I hope  you have a wonderful month. Do you know anyone else doing Blogmas?? Who should I check out?! I would love to find more people who share things similar to what I do.

That’s everything! If you would like to see me do a gift guide for the men in your lives, let me know. If you’d rather see it on Instagram stories or Snapchat instead let me know about that too. Thank you all for sticking with me through the last few months. I appreciate every single one of you. Let’s have fun this month. See you in my next post!



Hello lovelies! I know I’ve been a little bit MIA the last couple of weeks. I wanted to spend as much time as I could with my family and others close to me the week of Thanksgiving. As the title of this post clearly states. I will be doing Blogmas again this year. It starts tomorrow December 1st and will go until December 31st. I would love to hear from you and what you would like to see during Blogmas. Anything from beauty favorites, Christmas and holiday favorites, recipes that I’ve tested out, traditions, and everything in between. I hope that you all have a wonderful December, stay warm, have fun, and close out 2017 with a bang!


Sick Day Routine

Hello lovelies! Nothing like getting sick and tooth problems to derail the momentum I had going. Today I’m sharing with you what I do when I’m home sick all day. Thankfully after some over the counter pain reliever, and a trip to the dentist, I’m feeling much better and not sleeping every chance I get.

First thing in the morning, I put on some comfy cozy slippers and headed downstairs for something warm to drink. I will usually make myself a cup of coffee, but this morning I changed it up. I stirred up a cup of a chai tea latte. I would share the recipe or direct you to where I got the recipe from, but it was a Christmas gift from a family friend.

Once my tea is stirred up, I went back to bed and turned on Netflix. I know Halloween hasn’t even happened yet, but I started watching the made for tv movies/Hallmark channel-esque, Christmas movies. I am that person, that the second Christmas music starts playing on the radio, I listen to it 24/7. Also, the second Thanksgiving is over, I’m decorating my house.

That’s it! That’s what I do on days when I’m sick. What do you do on days you’re not feeling well? If you want to see my morning or night time routine, or if you have any other suggestions, let me know! I will have a Fall Bucket List Update soon! I have been busy working on that list, it was been so much fun doing things on that list, and I’m excited to share an update with you. That’s all for now. Stay warm and have a great day!

Project Pan Finale!!

Hello lovelies! So today I’m giving you the last update on my Project Pan. Let me get the bad news out of the way first. I did not reach my goal of finishing 10 out of the 15 products that I chose. I believe that I chose too many challenging items to try and complete in the time frame that I gave myself. On the other hand I think I balanced it out with enough products that I would be able or should have finished. Although I was not successful, I learned a lot about the way I use items. I am looking forward to do many more project pans. So let me go through everything.

Completely Finished

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer

It’s a 10 Leave-In Conditioner
