So basically, if you’re shopping for him on Swell, it’s all about the rule of one for you, one (or two) for me! :) (I live by this rule).

Ahem.

1. Date Night- Can we all agree that dressing boys up is just good old fashioned fun? Especially if you have a cute boy and he looks good in everything. If you’re looking for a little date night look for your hunny try this! It’s a little bit casual, little bit city, and a little bit hipster. Perfect for tapas!

2. Wave Rider- If he’s a beachy kind of dude, get him something he’ll use! A brand new wetsuit, this bad@$$ wet/dry backpack by Dakine and some Piss Off (hehehehahah) might just do the trick!

Good Morning Bb’s!

Happy Thursday!! In case you forgot/are trying to ignore the holly jolly music everywhere you go.. We are only TWO little weeks away from Christmas!!! (My fave holiday ever!) I’ve been super on top of Christmas this year.  Ie: decking the halls, hanging twinkly lights, lighting yummy candles, singing carols, you know- bugging the hell out of my fam/friends.. Nbd..

Tangent- why the f do I feel like I need a bigger house every year around Christmas?! Like can I buy every decoration known to man?? Not without more storage, beezy… (This is an internal struggle).

Anyway- HOLIDAY GIFTS!

This year I have been super duper down with online shopping.  No, I did not brave the insane crowds the day after Thanksgiving. I opted instead to shop from my iPhone, glass of wine in hand by the fire.  Sorry not sorry I’ll stay at home. For me, the deals are online and I search EVERYWHERE for them.  So in case you are not Miss (or Mister) Shop-A-Holic Online Addict (like me), I have curated some AMAZING gift guides for you this year! Over the next couple of weeks, keep checking back for info about killer sales, and my little guides to help you get this gift giving thang done!

1. Cozy Night In- For the lady who loves to pamper herself. Treat your babe to a cozy robe, adorable knee socks, sweet smelling candle, a luxe blanket and tea for one! This tea pot seriously makes me want to plan a whole weekend around it. Y tu??

2. Island Getaway- For the babe who loves to get away. Show your love that you care with a brand new figure flattering suit, boho sandals, pink shades, woven bag and ofcourse- sunscreen!! Oh, and FYI, this entire set is around $300…. Can we all say ONE STOP SHOP?! Love. As always, Swell is Free Shipping $18+, so ya…


3. Yogi Bear Staycation-
For the gal who loves her Namaste. This yoga mat is literally everything.. Combined with the perfect stretchy leggings, a funky top, the most badass gym tote ever a la Stella McCartney (dieeeeeeeeeeee, I CANNOT!!!!!!), oh- and plenty of hydration. Your yogi bear will be thanking you for ever & ever with this set!

Let me know what gift guides you want to see next!! E-mail me here or comment below!

Thanksgiving is OFFICIALLY one week away (WTF?!) and if you haven’t already, now is the time to start thinking about this year’s ensemble.

It seems far too limiting and slightly unfair to only include five items this week on the top five, so I have come up with five different Thanksgiving looks to get you in the mood to start styling your wardrobe now!

Oh, and if you don’t have all of these items, it will also give you time to buy for that perfect fit..

Hehehe :)

(Mouse over pictures to see pricing info and click to go directly to the item link!)

1. The Frisky Feather

This look is all glam with a little festivity in the feathers.  Take your favorite faux leather pant, pair with a simple yet interesting white tee, layer this amazing fur jacket over the top and these incredible feathered heels for $108…. Such a steal.

Perfect for: A Friendsgiving or Fancy Affair

2. The Plaid Pilgrim  

As you can see from the picture, this look is all about the plaid skirt.  This full hip hugging skirt is made for a sweet crop top like this one.  Anchor with a strong black boot and overcoat and sparkle with just the right drop earrings for an elegant touch.

 

Perfect for: Small intimate family gatherings

3. The Bodacious Voyager

This ensem is all boho and all sass.  Every lady should invest in a good layering dress such as this one, layer a huge, comfy sweater over the top, dazzle with a little jeweled halo and give yourself a lift with these Jeffrey Campbell heels.  Oh, and of course the bag is worth every damn penny for something so fab ($98?? Done.)

Perfect for: The Multi-Family Thanksgiving Run Around

4. The Festive Foliage

If you have not yet purchased a For Love & Lemons piece, now is your chance! The perfect fall dress, paired with a cute around the neck gold chain for a touch of glam,a soft and furry clutch for a little fun and of course, some sassy sunnies.

Perfect for: An evening celebration

5. The Meet the Parents

If this is your first Thanksgiving meeting the parents, allow me to give you a little bit of unsolicited advice: BE YOU.  Don’t dress any kind of way that they won’t see you dress like again.  Make sense? That’s not to say go with a super sheer top with your cleavage busting out all over the place (totes inappropriate), but if you want to wear something a little on the funky side (ie: a faux fur jacket, leopard print heels, even a tasteful long sleeved crop)..  I say God Bless.  They’ll love you for you, just like your partner does. :)

Perfect for: Meeting the Parents

IMG_2440 We all need a little recharge every now and then, you know, that thing called “me” time.

My “me” time comes in a lot of forms… I love to slip on comfy slippers (remember this post?), watch reality TV, avoid football AT ALL COSTS, go shopping, get lunch & read my book, light some candles, you know the drill.  Depending on my mood, it’s a variation of these things mentioned.  This past weekend, I took part in a little “me” time consisting of looking through old photos, baking, jamming out to some music, and making myself a little DIY face mask.

The best part of this mask is that it is only four ingredients, all of which I already had.

Sorry…. No, I’m not going to go to the store for 50 million ingredients and interrupt my sing along to Sweater Weather by the Neighbourhood!!! (I LOVE that song).

So here are the deets:

IMG_2438Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Turmeric, Honey and Almond Milk.

Note: You can use 2% milk if you have it, or rice milk or whatever you like, I used Almond Milk because I had it, and as previously mentioned, lazy was in full effect. By the way, use a little less than 1 tbsp of whatever “milk” you use. Mine initially came out slightly runny from the Almond Milk, I had to add more coconut oil to balance it out, and a tad more honey.

Full recipe and info found here.

If I can be really real with you guys, I left mine on for 25 minutes, and be very careful while it’s on because Turmeric is an odd mustard color and can get on your hands/shirt, etc.  When washing it off you’ll have a yellow-ish mustard face, just keep washing gently until it’s all off. To moisturize after I took about a tsp of Coconut Oil and put it under my eyes and on my forehead. After my skin was glowing and felt refreshed!

IMG_2439This is a really great, easy and relaxing little mask. Let me know if you try it! BTW- “Me” time essentials ;) :

You know when you’re just so tickled by something and it just completely makes you uncontrollably laugh (in an ugly way)? Well that’s me, with this book club thing.  I LOVE IT.

Reading a book by myself is pretty fun, but reading a book with a bunch of ladies at the same time has to be one of the most fun things ever.  Especially when they’re amazing books.  Our first book was White Girl Problems by Babe Walker. Highly recommend! If you missed the low down on this one click here.

Our next book is…..
