Holiday Shopping!

The holidays are officially here and even though it’s supposed to be a month full of love and joy, I always find it to be quite stressful. I’m a very particular person, so everything I do/buy/make has to be  exactly how I envisioned it/want it. 
Meaning, I take my time with everything I do because I’m such a perfectionist and I want 
everything I do to reflect that. So with the holidays just a few weeks away, I’ve already 
started making my shopping lists for my loved ones because picking gifts for the people you 
care about is a hard task. I want to make sure I’m getting them the perfect gift! 
So although holiday day shopping for me is more on the stressful side than fun, I take pride in the time I spend shopping for each person in my life! After all, they are the people that mean the most to me, 
so they deserve the best! Here are some holiday gift ideas that I want to get for my people and that
 can help you put together your shopping list..
 when it comes down to gifts, I prefer giving (and receiving) gifts-  
when it comes down to clothes & accessories- that are versatile and staples!

I suggest picking key pieces for gifts (and they don’t have to be expensive) , as 
they’ll get so much use out of them!
KEY GIFT PIECES:
A great DENIM jacket-  it’s a classic and such a staple.. everyone looks great in denim.

A cool TEE- Tees are cool and can become their fave go-to tee!
Above is from Victoria Secret, other cool ones herehere,  and here 

A rad WALLET- What girl (or guy) wouldn’t want a dope wallet? Wallets get overlooked a lot, but
 giving a great wallet might be one of the best gifts- they’re always going to use it!
Above is by Alexander Wang.. Other nice ones here, here and here (on sale!)

Mixin’ it Up.

Mixin’ it up with wearing something a little more ‘put together’ because you all know I’m always more on the minimal-sneakers-side. So this felt dressed up for me but in a “not trying so hard” kinda way which is always a plus in my book. These booties are def a staple must-have for their versatility!
Have a wonderful Thursday and remember to keep dreaming big!

Finally decided to switch my lip color ( I always wear my fave BabyLips by Maybelline, everyday) so got a little daring and decided to wear a red lippy a couple of days ago! Definitely changed my attitude- I felt more confident and bad ass, was that supposed to happen? 
I get really comfortable with wearing the same kind of makeup look everyday and using the same products, but I know I should be a little more adventurous… so I’ll try be more open to wearing different lip colors from now on! A makeup routine post is much needed!
Anyway, wore this to a couple of meetings through out the day. Totally love that the sequins definitely add some spark and glam to my look plus it helped me get in the holiday spirit too! My favorite sweater at the moment btw… speaking of favorite, these dope/amazing/cool/ill jeans have been my go-to jeans for the last couple of weeks! They have the perfect amount of edginess and distress that everything I throw on with it looks pretty rad; and THOSE zippers. whoa. those zippers.
 just amazing.
Anyway, I’m off to pack and ship some orders! Get your bracelets, HERE- we are almost sold out-
 just a few left!
