Stello_Peps! It’s Case once again sharing some thoughts on the blog… So - here is a Men’s Holiday Gift Guide written from the man’s perspective once again so that you don’t have to try and guess what it is that a man might have on his holiday wish list. Shopping for Him can be really easy or it can be fairly challenging. Totally depends on your man and what it is that he likes or in some cases what he doesn’t like. I don’t claim to know what your guys would want for Christmas, but what I can do is share with you some things that I think are pretty cool and some great deals I’ve found…
I’m not sure about the rest of ya’ll but I always have this feeling of the holidays getting real, real fast right after Thanksgiving. I am not the greatest about shopping cyber sales because I feel torn to decorate and have family time since my kids are out of school. So when they go back I try to jump into action and snag whatever I can for my people, finding items that are fun to give and make sense for friends and family. Buying for others can be stressful, so let me help and give some ides that can make giving joyful and less time consuming.
Welcome to the greatest shopping week of the year! It is Cyber week and I’m sure you all have already been doing some shopping - both in stores and online! Since literally every store is running a huge sale right now, I’ve tried to pair down all the choices to a few great finds in my Cyber Week Gift Guide for 2018. So you can take advantage of such a great week of shopping and saving on so many gifts for Christmas.
Not sure about the rest of the world, but one of the things I covet most in the world is sleep. I am in a constant game of how much sleep I wish I got and how much sleep I actually get. I have a thing about getting as much work done as possible before I go to sleep so I rest easier - which is actually a huge joke because in my line of work the job is never done.
The holidays are truly a magical time of the year. All of the decorations and hot coco make for lots of smiles and happy hearts. Holiday parties however can sometimes lead to stress and unhappy thoughts when it comes to getting dressed and spending money on something that you may not wear again. I love keeping holiday looks simple and classic because you can still wear “simple stylish” all year long! Today I’m sharing some classic holiday style with this amazing lace skirt!
Well it’s Friday, and I have some favs to share! From a true lover of all things seasonal and holiday related, this time of year is my jam. I love picking up fresh decor pieces that I can keep up for longer than a couple weeks. I like to have clean and simple decor in my home so that it is neutral enough to work in whatever part of the house I want to use it.
Friday is here and I am currently hanging out with my daughter in East Texas on her 7th grade retreat with her class. Lots of fresh air, but yes I am ready to sleep in my own bed tonight! These camp bunk beds are definitely NOT one of my Friday favs! But it’s totally worth it! Making memories with her always are. Now, on to sharing with you some of my favorite things that I am loving!
One of my favorite things about being a stylist and a blogger is being able to have the latest insight on not only fashion and trends, but where to buy and who has the best deals. I am a high low shopper, meaning I like to buy my investments pieces that are usually a higher price point, and buy on a lower price the trendier items that I might not keep in my wardrobe as long.
Texas has some insane and crazy weather, but lately it has been on another level! We have had more rain then I remember in a long time, and it was in the high 80’s last week-now it is currently 46 degrees! It can be hard to have good hair days with all the rain and yuck, so I love to have a few go to hats handy on the days when I know my hair is not going to look it’s best.
Its officially Fall in my world - any time in Texas the temps dip under 80 degrees… it’s time! Every season brings with it different trends and tips on what is new, what we must be wearing, and what we can’t live without! Some trends have been around so long they are no longer considered trends, and they are now just staples that every woman needs in her closet!
Ok all it’s Friday! My favorite day of the week and the day that I get to share a few of my favs with you! These are items I have in my home for one reason or another and I just love them. And I always want to share things that I love, and please feel free to do the same with me! Message me back with any of your favorite items that you use and love on a daily basis and we will keep the ideas coming!
I am a huge believer in diffusers in my house! I have a few reasons why these scented miracles are needed - first off we live in a house that was built in the 1960’s so it can tend to have a bit of a musty smell from time to time. We have totally renovated it but it’s in the bones. So, I really don’t want friends coming in and smelling a stale smell! My second very important reason for this yummy diffuser is because I live in less than 2,000 square feet with two boys, two boys who eat -ALL the time!! No need to exaggerate. Now, this particular diffuser is on the pricier side, but it’s worth every penny. The LAFCO has lasted longer than any other diffuser I have ever purchased and it smells up the room consistently. I will save up an grab this once a year hands down, plus it’s so pretty to look at!
A friend gifted me this a few birthdays back and she is my beauty guru gal. You know those friends who are always in Sephora and know exactly what to buy - well this is my favorite way to take off my make up overnight. It’s much softer than a wash cloth and does the trick! I can wash it with my towel load when needed and it’s like brand new! Yes for clean skin!!
I am a huge fan of coffee table books! I love how chic and classic they look on display, and nothing says chic and classic like Chanel! I don’t wear Chanel except for my mascara, but I have a true appreciation for style and fashion. This one is such a great price too for a hard back and the size is just perfect for any coffee table! Score!!
This tray is so much fun that I tend to move it from room to room depending on what I need. It is the perfect addition to any decor space and just adds the right amount of texture and clean lines to my tables. I have used it in my bathroom to display perfumes and on my bar cart with my wine and a few glasses. The price you can’t beat eiher because the quality was way better than what I expected. Sometimes home decor type items are a hit or miss for me but this was a home run! (other recent home decor items).
We are excited to have some family time this weekend and plan on hitting up the zoo and watching Dax play football! Hope you all have an amazing weekend and that you know how grateful I am for each of you!
