2014 Holiday Gift Ideas

As the holiday season is quickly approaching the fun of buying gifts for you BFF, sister, or Mom can sometimes be so difficult!  As you all know I absolutely love shopping and I actually like buying gifts too!  It’s fun because you can give them what you would wear (in hopes to borrow it, hehe)!  So in light of some people having a difficult time thinking of gifts to give their sister’s and mother’s I have put together some gift ideas for this holiday season!

First I HAVE to talk about this micro Kate Spade purse!!  I saw these when I was home over Thanksgiving break with my Mom and Sister’s and I just fell in love!!  These purses are TINY but so so perfect for your phone, wallet, and of course lipstick!  This purse is the perfect purse when you do not want to lug around your whole life with you!  Just slip it on your shoulder and go!  Seriously guys, I’m obsessed with it!  Marc by Marc Jacobs and Michael Kor’s are making little micro purses too!!  Only six inches wide, I cannot get over how cute they are!

What could be cuter than black and white polka dot Betsy Johnson flannel pajamas?! That’s right, nothing!  I love cute pajama sets and every winter I love getting a new set to wear while I’m home for the holidays!  If your parents live in a very cold state like mine do then this Barefoot Dreams robe, slouchy beanie by Ugg Australia, and UGG slippers would also make for perfect gifts and they will keep you Cozy chic all winter long!

What Mom, Sister, and BFF doesn’t like getting new lipgloss and candles?!  You cannot go wrong when it comes to the Bobbi Brown lip gloss!  They come in a nice pack of four (and gift with purchase if you are ordering from Nordstrom, win)!  Another perk of this awesome lip gloss is that it is not sticky!  I hate when I buy a new lip gloss and it is super sticky but this Bobbi Brown lip gloss is not sticky at all and completely smooth!  The Kate Spade candle collection is so cute and so much fun!  Each candle has a different saying on it and during the winter months is my absolute favorite time to light candles, makes the whole house feel so warm and cozy!

Perfume is always a great gift to give someone!  Most women use perfume everyday so getting new every year is always much appreciated.  I have always loved how the Chance by Chanel smells, it is one of my go to perfumes!  And last but not least, the lovely Tory Burch has a new watch collection out that I love!  This Tory Burch watch would be such a fun layering piece to add to your arm candy!  It is a wrap around watch so it is a bit more unique than just a normal watch band.

I hope I have helped some of you out when it comes to giving gifts or maybe gave some of you some ideas of what to add to your wish list this year!

A Very Trendy Thanksgiving!

MMMMM who is soooo full they can’t move?!? I know I am! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays; mainly because it is surrounded by delicious food and of course all of my loving family!

Here is my Thanksgiving look!

J.Crew Tights// Steve Madden ‘Whysper’ Nubuck Bootie in Black//  Topshop floppy wool felt hat//  Betsy Johnson Coat// Free People Plaid Skirt//  Small Gold Ring –‘Marina’ Midi Ring// Marc by Marc Jacobs Watch//  Trouve Top// David Yurman ‘Crossover” Bracelet// David Yurman ‘Cable Classics’ Ring

I have to say, I have been looking for some cute black booties for a while and these Steve Madden one’s are just what I was looking for!  Not only are they super cute but also extremely comfortable.  If those two things aren’t enough these booties are also under $100!!  What could be better?!?  I mean seriously?  They are my perfect fall bootie!

The hat I am wearing I am currently obsessed with!  I want to put it with every outfit possible!  Hat’s make every outfit look just that much better!!  The Betsy Johnson Coat is my FAVORITE trench coat.  This coat is so fun because it is not a traditional trench coat.  This coat flairs out at the bottom and has just the cutest flower buttons!  It is just darling!  And of course this Free People Plaid Skirt I am just swooning over!!  It is so chic and fun, perfect for the holidays (and it has pockets, which makes me love it even more)!

For Thanksgiving I am home in Iowa and it is FREEZING.  It is currently 3 degree’s out so I am inside by the fire drinking some hot chocolate!  Here are some pictures of the food my family made for Thanksgiving!  My special dish I make each year is the Sweet Potato casserole (obviously the best dish of the night)!
