Gift Guide // For Her

Gift Guide for Her

I firmly believe that gifts should be those little luxuries that really are not practical or anything the receiver would ever get for herself. I picked out some favorites for friends or relatives with a focus on items that you may actually buy as gifts, versus clothing or shoes. I really love the little dog balloon animal that is actually a jewelry holder & all the sparkly gold jewels that they can wear for NYE!

Gift Guide // The Jetsetter

Gift Guide for the JetsetterTraveling is such a hassle these days & I for one always get flustered in the airport. (Good news- no flying for me this week! Bad news- I have a really long car ride ahead of me with a dog & toddler). I picked out some items that I think would make packing & traveling just a little bit nicer for those like myself who get a bit overwhelmed. And for those who have a lifestyle that requires a lot of travel? It’s always nice to have brand new pretty things to take with you!

Gift Guide // For Him

Gift Guide for Him

Shopping for my husband & dad is always the most stressful by far. When all else fails I can figure out a gift for a female easily- a pretty necklace or a favorite new book. But men don’t want little “pretty” trinkets so I get stumped. There’s only so many times you can buy them something related to cooking (which they both love to do) or golf.

I’m still a bit stumped for both of them but did pull together some fun items for the men in your life! I especially like the 3-in-1 breakfast station & bacon candy canes. Mainly because what the heck to those taste like?! If you buy them let me know- they may be strangely delicious!

Weekend Note // 11.21.14

Weekend Note 11-21

You know how it’s been super cold all week in most of the country? My husband is golfing tomorrow. Yeah, I’ll let that one sink in. While he’s doing that I’m going to find a nice warm activity to do with my daughter- I’m thinking knocking out some Christmas shopping? Beyond that we’ll be prepping for our annual holiday party, figuring out what to bring to our first Cape Cod Thanksgiving, & stuffing our faces at an annual Friendsgiving. Holidays are officially here & I cannot be more excited about it!

Also, Serial. I mentioned this in last week’s Weekend Note but guys I’m addicted. I unfortunately caught up on all the episodes so now have to wait each week for a new one but I cannot stop listening to it. I explained it to my book club as if NPR took over Dateline. I’ve gotten at least one friend hooked within a 24 hr time frame & am hoping my book club friends take me up on it so we can discuss. I’m trying to figure out if there are any other types of podcasts I should be listening to on my commute to fill in until the next Serial episode- any suggestions?

And now on to the links:
