The Holidaze

Although the holidays are supposed to be about spreading cheer and giving thanks, they can also be somewhat stressful! Every time the holidays roll around I feel somewhat of a panic and go into a frenzy. Besides the shorter days, the change in weather, and worsened traffic, I worry that I’m not going to get my Christmas shopping done on time. Sure enough, I ran behind on my Christmas shopping this year. I usually start around Thanksgiving, but this year has been even more hectic and chaotic than usual and I ran behind. Luckily I am done! But for those that are feeling anxious, not to worry. I got you covered! Below are some of my gift giving ideas for the special ladies, women, and girls in your life!

These are some of the things that are on my wish list that I would love to receive but will be gifting to the wonderful ladies in my life:

Pajama sets: PJ sets are great gifts. You can never have too many! Everyone sleeps, right?  I found some really great and affordable ones from Forever 21. Striped Satin PJ set $24.80 from Forever 21.

 

For the makeup lovers in your life: Too Faced Best Year Ever makeup Collection. This set contains Too Faced Cosmetic’s best selling products, such as the Better Than Sex Mascara and 3 separate eye shadow palettes. It also comes in a super cute limited edition bag with a step-by-step how-to glamour guide! What a great deal for all of these products!

Candles from Bath and Body Works: I find that Bath and Body Works has the best scented candles for the price and quality! They have a variety of holiday scents to choose from! Candles range from $12.95 and up.

Tiffany’s Love Heart Earrings: Great studs for everyday wear. Sterling Silver with the iconic Tiffany blue.

Chocolate indulgence:  One of my favorite places to get chocolate’s from is Compartes, especially around the holidays! Although they are a little pricey, they are definitely worth it, and they make a great gift for all the chocolate lovers in your life. I would recommend the Holiday Truffles. 20 pieces $59.95

Bathtub Caddy: Great for the ultimate bath time relaxation. No need to worry about getting your Kindle, iPad, or book wet. There is even a place for your glass of champagne or wine! Available on Amazon for $39. 

BUY NOW: $39, amazon.com
With room for a wine glass and a book, this caddy promises the most relaxing bubble bath ever. 

 

Just a little friendly reminder, although gifts are nice it is not what Christmas is about. Remember to try to spend time with friends and family, and put aside all of your difference and just try to enjoy the holidays. I wish everyone happy holidays! A special thank you to those who continue to read and support my blog even though I haven’t been as consistent as I would like to be. Cheers!

 

 

Summer Goals

Finally my favorite season is here! I like to set mini goals or to-do lists for myself this time of year. These are some of my mini goals/to do for this summer:

-Drink more water: I can never remember to drink water throughout the year, but with temperatures rising it is extremely crucial to stay hydrated! I also like to collect new reusable water bottles to make remembering to drink water easier (haha). Here are a few cute ones I’ve had my eyes on:

My latest one for this summer!

Berry Stainless Steel Cold Cup

Victoria’s Secret Pink

Kate Spade

-Wear sunscreen! I am guilty of only wearing sunscreen when I go to the beach or theme parks, which is terrible, because I live in sunny California!  Skin cancer can happen at any age with any race, so let’s all try to remember those SPFs! The sunblock I am currently using is Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen in SPF 100. I love how light weight this feels and it doesn’t have a strong sunblock odor. The packaging is also sleek and small, so it fits in my purse!

-Visit someplace new: I’d like to travel or go to a new place that I haven’t gone to before: Whether it is a new beach or new hiking location, I would love to experience something new. Even something as simple as a new restaurant!

-Cleaning: Every summer I always like to clean out my closet and donate clothes to the local charity. It is a great way to give back and clean out my closet to make room for that new summer wardrobe! 

What are some of your goals and to-do list for this summer? 🙂
