Christmas Gift Ideas Part 1

Christmas Ideas for Her...
I cannot believe that it is almost the end of November! Christmas is nearly upon us (1 month away!) and I am just now starting my Christmas shopping…nothing like waiting till last minute! Do you guys wait till after Black Friday to start Christmas shopping or hope to be done before then? There are so many sales and promo codes coming up that it can be good to wait…I’m getting off topic!
Anyway, here are a few Christmas gifts (ideas) that I picked out if you are buying for any females in your life. I LOVE Diptyque candles. They have lovely scents and such a good throw. They are nice because they are something you may not usually buy yourself because they are a little pricey! I received a Kindle as a birthday gift a few years ago and love that you can carry around sooooo many books on the one device. They are great for travel! You can never go wrong with a classic black bag….especially when it is Mulberry! Or some classic red pumps for the Christmas season. I thought these dainty earring were pretty and nice to mix and match. As it gets colder it is nice to be able to bundle up in a classic trench coat and checkered scarf. Lastly, two ideas for some wall art: a couple of different sized frames to frame some of your favourite memories (and it’s fun creating different designs on the wall with all the different frames) and a Print of the Prada Marfa sign.
What are some of your Christmas gift ideas?
Stay tuned for Part 2 which is gift ideas for all the men in your lives!

Online Window Shopping – Currently Coveting

Currently Coveting
White Dress // Body Oil // White Bag // Suede Booties // Black Strappy Pumps // Earrings // Candle // Pillows // Black Strappy Heels

You know I love a bit of Online Window Shopping….well here is my latest. Back around Christmas I tried on this white dress in a blue and white version and loved it. However, I could not justify the price – now I see they have it in a plain white version and they are both on sale! I discovered this body oil when I was looking up the Diptyque body creme that I had a sample of. The body creme has such an amazing smell that I can’t wait to try the body oil when I see it in store. I love Boots and think these are amazing – I’m not one who wears a lot of silver but I do love the buckles on these boots. How can you not like these strappy pumps or these strappy heals?? They are so edgy – I love them! Definitely something to save up for or try and find a dupe for! I thought these earrings were very simple but still had a “wow” factor. I love Eucalyptus and also want to see how this candle smells when I’m next in a department store in Atlanta – that and the Biaes room spray. I love the Biaes candle and would be interested to see how they compare. Of course there is another bag in there – one that is simple and chic and would go with errything! Lastly, I thought these outdoor pillows were fun. A great colour and pattern! Looking at the picture I realize there is a definite colour theme doing on this time – white, back, and gold/yellow!

~ Blush Blazer ~

Good walking

Happy Friday! I love this blush blazer because it makes a nice change from the typical black. The zips also add a nice extra touch. I paired this blazer with a leather skirt, a white open back top, and some black and white polka dot pumps that really POP! For the accessorizes I wanted to keep them soft and simple and a blush envelope clutch, a chunky pearl necklace and pretty gold bangles achieved just that. I also added these cool stud earrings last minute. I am really enjoying this blush colour and think this skirt and this top would be great pieces to add to any wardrobe wanting to incorporate more blush tones.

Valentine’s Day Picks

Valentine Picks

Candle // Pouch // Pumps // Body Creme

Scarf // Purse // Tray // Earrings

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and here are a few Valentine’s Day Picks I found that would make great gifts (or to treat yourself) for all different budgets. I love the smell of roses and Jo Malone makes nice luxurious body crèmes that feel great on the skin. Diptyque candles have great throw and will leave the entire room smelling like fragrant and this Roses one is no exception! Who wouldn’t love a great pair of red pumps with red soles to match! They would be great for a date night. This pouch would be great for makeup or to keep bits n’ bobs in your purse, especially this purse, and the quote is cute! I have these earrings in the clear crystal and love wearing them day and night. They have a lot of colours to choose from as well. Wouldn’t this tray would be a great place to put your jewelry when taking it off for bed. They make ones with all the different letters in the alphabet so it is a bit more personal. Lastly, scarfs always add a nice finishing touch to an outfit and this one comes in a pretty light pink color – great for Valentine’s Day and as we move into Spring.

What Valentine’s Day gifts do you have in mind?

Online Window Shopping…

Desktop5

Candle // Dress // Shoes // Fragrance

Foundation // Trays // Card Case // Purse

I have been online window shopping again…Here are just a few things I stumbled across as I was looking at the Boxing Day sales online. I love Diptyque Candles! I think this Eucalyptus one would be a nice one since I find Eucalyptus to be really calming. I love this dress! The colour and the back! I think these shoes are super edgy and would really spice up an outfit. I read in Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty (a Christmas present from a friend) that he once said he “wants people to be afraid of the women [he] dresses” and that “there is a certain hardness to the clothes that makes [women] look powerful.” I definitely think this is true about these shoes. They are also on sale! I have this fragrance in the solid form and was just eyeing up the bottle to see what I think. The ’34’ solid is one of my favourites (post here).

This (newish) Laura Mercier  is one that I have had my eye on lately and also been reading about. I can’t wait to try it. I think these trays would look great on a side table in a living room. Their website has a bunch of pictures of how people have styled them. This card case would be great for not only credit cards and bills but also business cards. It is very classic and would not go out of style. I love this purse and think the size and style is great! So simple but with a little something extra with the chain and closure.

Have you guys found any great Boxing day sales?

Current Wish List

Happy Hump Day Everyone,

As most girls do, I have a wish list going of all crazy outfits, shoes and bags I want! Here are some products that I currently have my eye on. The loafers look so comfy and will also go with anything (as my sister would say because she wears similar ones all the time!) This black clutch is such a staple item, everyone needs one in their wardrobe (I like this one because it is affordable and simple). This equipment top will add a pop to any plain bottom (skirt or trousers) while this dress is the same as one I currently have but just in a different colour (you can never have to much of a good thing right?!). These earrings are so cute and would look great in a second hole (which I am thinking of doing, with my sister). I love that you can mix and match them! I love this long dress, it is so simple and elegant.  Finally, you can’t go wrong with a nude pair of pumps. I am loving this SJP pair but also these and these.

Prada Loafers, Cuyana Black Clutch, Earrings (some less expensive versions here and here), Equipment Top, Joie Dress, Rory Beca Dress, Nude SJP Pumps

What are some of your wish list items?

Shoe Storage Idea

For the past few years (since I can remember to be honest), I have always stored my shoes in the boxes that they come in. Although this keeps the shoes in good condition, it does take up a lot of room which isn’t ideal if you don’t have a huge amount of storage space (like me, wouldn’t we all love a walk in wardrobe?!).

Recently I decided that it would be easier for me to display them so that I can see all of them at once. This means that no shoe gets forgotten (can help if you are trying not to spend and save money!). I did some research and I think the best and most affordable solution is a Billy Bookcase from Ikea!

The bookcase was $79.99, not a bad price if you ask me! There is a white one which is cheaper, but the darker wood accents the master bedroom for me. I did screw mine to the wall to make it even more sturdy, and I also added glass doors for even more convenient storage, what do you guys think?

For those of you worrying about assembly, I put this all together myself (my husband thought it was crazy I wanted shoes in a bookcase), and managed just fine!

Bright Shoes!

I am really loving shoes that add a POP to an outfit! In the past 6 months I have bought 2 pairs that really brighten up an outfit. The first are these J Crew Collection ones. The mint green colour is so pretty and really makes you look twice.

The second pair are these BRIGHT blue Alice & Olivia ones.Insta

I love this blue.

While window-shopping online the other day I found another pair of bright shoes I am liking….

Yellow for blog

These Yellow pumps are from Bergdorf Goodman and would be great for the summer!
