Holiday Gift Guide 2018

I can’t believe that the holiday season is already here! I did my gift guide a little different this year.. instead of making a holiday gift guide of what all is popular, I thought I would make it easy on my family & fiancé to just include everything I want for Christmas/my birthday! — shoutout to my fellow christmas babies :) I also included some notes on a few of the products below! 

Under $100

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten // eleven // twelve // thirteen // fourteen // fifteen // sixteen // seventeen // eighteen // nineteen 

#2 Puffers are so hot this season and this one is JUST UNDER $40!!! The red is really pretty too! 

#5 & #8 I heard Morgan Stewart uses only Nurse Jamie products, so I use only Nurse Jamie products. (cue all mean girls fans) But really, I have heard nothing but good things about these products! Take care of that skin, ladies & gents! 

#10 & #12 I want both and I think I want them in the letter M for both my fiancé and dog :) 

$100 and over

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten // eleven // 

twelve // thirteen // fourteen // fifteen // sixteen 

#1 I sadly lost my camera when traveling to London earlier this year, so of course, a new camera is on my wish list! I got a kit with my T5 last time and loved it, but the one I found for the T6 is even better! not only does it include the 18-55mm (starter prime lens), but also the 75-300mm that I have heard good things about. I think this bundle is a great bang for your buck! 

#2 I have heard nothing but good things about the Hanacure mask, and it is something I wouldn’t spend on myself (bc cheap). Also, gotta get the skin looking radiant for the big day ;) 

#4 This serum is a gift from the angels above! no really. GO GET IT. NOW! But while you’re at it, you should look into purchasing the Lancome Holiday Glam Box because it really does save you so much money and all of the items are amazing. (this has been on my list the past 5 years and will continue to be!) 

#9 who doesn’t love Ariana?! and btw she puts on an AMAZING SHOW!

#12 I really can’t choose just one color, this bag comes in an amazing mustard yellow, green, and gray — I think i’ll take one of each!

Spring Wardrobe Starter Kit


I thought it was fitting to make my first blog post of the spring to be about how to build your spring wardrobe and what items to start with! There are many pieces that I continue to wear each spring and summer until they need to be thrown away, but also some items I like to purchase at the beginning of the season. Adding a new top or shoes to a dress you already own is a great way to make the outfit feel new again!
