Monday Inspiration #1: Spring Fever!

Hello everyone! I’ve decided to start something new on here. I took inspiration from Rach Parcell from Pink Peonies  and Wednesdays, she posts new inspirational Polyvore creations, depending on what she is liking and into lately. So I’ve decided to do this every Monday, to start the week off with some inspiration. My hope is that you guys can use this outfit that I make as a guide to style yourself through the week.

This week I have some serious spring fever! All I want is to wear cute summer dresses and shoes that don’t require socks any longer! This outfit in particular is little too spring for the weather I currently have, but I’m hoping to incorporate some of these aspects into my looks this week!
 I hope you guys like this new feature that I’m hoping to do every week! Let me know if this is something you will look forward too or not. I know I am looking forward to creating next weeks inspiration already!
Hope you all have a good week!

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: STOCKING STUFFERS!

So, as a conclusion to my gift guides, I’ve come up with a list of little gifts that could find themselves in stocking or under the tree. They are generally unisex, but some are a little bias. Without further, let’s get into this!

  1. Socks: Everybody’s got feet, and everybody needs socks. I personally can never have enough funny socks.
  2. Sunglasses: Just because it’s getting dark earlier now doesn’t mean that we can’t think about the sun. Sunglasses are always fun to get.
  3. Key Chain: It could be a pom pom one for a girl or a unique leather one for guy, there are so many unique key chains out there.
  4. Phone Case: There are so many adorable cool phone cases out there and they make an awesome stocking stuff.
  5. Wallet: There are tons of wallets out there could be perfect for whoever you are shopping for.
  6. Chocolate/Candy: As always, you gotta have candy in your stocking. My favourites are Lindt and Skittles
  7. CD/DVD: I know in the age of Spotify and Netflix, who needs CDs and DVDs, but these are still cool to have.
  8. Makeup: Drug store makeup is nice to stick in stocking, especially a product or shade they’ve never used before.
  9. Face/Body Wash: A sweet smelling body wash or face wash is always a nice thought.
  10. Gift Cards: A few suggestions would be to get a facial, hair cut, Bath and Body Works, Starbucks, Urban Outfitters, and iTunes.
  11. Journal: I love to write in my journals and I have a huge collection of notebooks, so maybe I’m a little bias…
  12. Pencils:  They have some that are drumsticks that would be cool for a music lover or ones that say cute sayings on them would be cool for a lady boss.
  13. Hair Products: Both guys and girls use product on their hair, so why not grab an extra thing of gel for them this season?
  14. Flask: There are so many funny flasks out there that have funny sayings on them that would make hilarious stocking stuffers.
  15. Pocket Knife: Not for everyone, but still a pretty useful tool.
  16. Deodorant: Lame, I know, but no one wants to smell bad!
  17. Bracelet/Jewellery: Of course, this shouldn’t be diamond earrings, but a cute leather bracelet or a nice necklace is always a nice gift.
  18. Underpants: Basic, once again, but everybody needs ’em.
  19. Tea or Coffee or Hot Chocolate: Always nice to have a cup on Christmas morning.
  20.  Mini Hockey Sticks/Hockey Pucks: If they are a hockey lover, these are always nice to open. If they play volley ball, maybe new knee pads or socks.
  21. Music ‘Things’: If they are into music, guitar picks, strings, are super nice to get to get the music lover.
  22. Cosmetic Bag/Shower Bag: There are some super funny cosmetic bags out there that would fit super nicely.
  23. Ornament: This is sort of tradition my family does every year and we give each other an ornament that sort of sums up the year.
  24. Charging Cords: I always seem to lose or break my charging cords, so these are always nice to have extra ones.
  25. Travel Board Games: I know these are a little  silly, but they are super funny!

I hope you guys liked my gift guide! Make sure to check out my holiday gift guide for her and for him! Leave a comment if you guys enjoyed these gift guides! I’m hoping to make this a tradition every year, to do a gift guide for her, him and stocking stuffers! Would you guys like to see what I gave for Christmas or what I got for Christmas? If so let me know!

Anyways, happy holidays! I hope you’re family is well and you are happy and well!!!

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: FOR HIM!!!

‘Tis the season! Last we talked, I was discussion what to get your friend, sister, girl friend, or mom for the holidays. Now, I’m going to share 25 things to get your friend, brother, boyfriend, dad or who ever for the holidays.

Again, like last time, these could be for girls or guys, but I’ve tried to come up with some stuff guys would like. I’ve asked my brothers, Brendan and my dad if they would like any of these gifts.

  1. A FitBit: I don’t really know why, but I feel like every guy just needs a FitBit. They look super good and are practical.
  2. Shaving Kit: Most guys have to shave, so a nice, luxurious shaving kit is always a good idea.
  3. A Robe: Most of the guys I know sleep in underwear or shirtless at least, so a robe is usually perfect for these winter months.
  4. Apple Music: I think this would be perfect, especially for a brother, because that’s all my brothers seem to do lately, so unlimited music seems like a win.
  5. Sweaters: Especially for boyfriends, a sweater is really a gift for him, but one you can steal later on…
  6. Cologne/Spray: Every guy needs their ‘signature smell’, so a spray or cologne is something most guys would be happy to get.
  7. Video Games: My brothers, boyfriend AND Dad all play video games pretty regularly (This year Titanfall and Battlefield are the top picks, according to Brendan)
  8. Sweatpants: Everyone needs a nice pair of pants for Sunday’s where you don’t want to do anything but watch cartoons and relax.
  9. Workout Bag: If your guy really likes sports, a cool idea would be to fill up a workout bag with a water bottle, maybe some shorts and a workout shirt.
  10. Sports Swag: What die hard fan doesn’t want gear that supports their team? None.
  11. Shoes: Nothing can make a guy look classy better than a pair of nice shoes. Make sure you know his size and style!
  12. Gift Box: You pick a theme, it could be an activity or something, and then you put together whatever they would need for this activity. This year, Brendan is giving my dad a gift box for hockey.
  13. Outdoor Supplies: A good backpack or a sleeping bag is a great addition to any adventure seeking guy.
  14. Personalised Book: This one more aimed at a long term boyfriend, but I still think it’s super cute. You can make one at Here at Lovebook. Super cute idea and super personal!
  15. Underpants: They need ’em and a luxurious pair of underpants are always nice to get.
  16. A Nerf Gun: This is something that my brother’s would get every year and I think this year we should revamp it for older guys.
  17. Mini Fridge: What guy doesn’t want a mini fridge? I know it’s a little big, but if you could get a deal it would be a unique gift.
  18. Laptop Bag & Stickers: If he’s a techie, a nice leather bag and some stickers to personalise their computer are nice gift.
  19. Shirt: Again, another gift for him that could be for you too, is a shirt that expressed his personality and quirks.
  20. French Press & Quirky Mug: Coffee is a lot of people’s lifeline, so a nice french press and a cute mug are always nice.
  21. Card Against Humanity: I love this game, and it’s a little raunchy but so much fun! I know my brothers have this on their list.
  22. Extra Charger: These can vary in price, but a nice little gift for a techie person. These come in variety of colours and fun shapes.
  23. Penny Board: A gift for a more coordinated guy that likes to skateboard. These are smaller boards that come in all sorts of different designs.
  24. Apple TV: Perfect for the techie of the family.
  25. Something Handmade: If all else fails, something you make, like cookies or pyjamas is always nice. They usually love whatever you make

These are just some ideas of what you could get the man in your life. If you think of any other great ideas you think they would like, comment! I tried to keep in mind the different types of guys there are out there. Happy Holidays!

PS: Stay tuned for my stocking stuffer ideas! Coming soon!
