Christmas is coming so quickly, so it’s definitely the time to stock up on gifts if you haven’t done so already. One person that you can’t forget to shop for is your grandma! I know they can be really tough to buy for - sometimes it seems like they have everything they need and don’t want anything at all! But, you still want to get something for them to make the holidays extra special. Here are some cute and fun Grandma gift ideas that they are . . .
When it comes to cleaning for the holidays, there is so much to be done. Whether you’re going to be hosting guests in your home - either for an event or if they are staying over - or if you’re just looking to get your home spick and span prior to traveling (or maybe a mixture of both?!), it always feels great to do a deep clean. The other day, I posted some tips on how to get a sparkly clean and well-organized kitchen, but today I wanted to give . . .
I blogged a few days ago with a preppy gift guide for girls, so today I wanted to share a preppy guide for guys. It’s only fair :) I broke it down into the same categories as I did with the girls items. There are so many great products out there - it was hard to narrow it down to my favorites, but here they are! CLOTHES There are SO many preppy guys clothes out there that are beautifully made and so stylish. Is there anything better than a . . .
Before we decorated for Christmas right after Thanksgiving, we decided to clean our apartment thoroughly. It hadn’t had a deep clean in a while, and sometimes it can start to feel that tidying up equates to just putting things wherever they fit - shoving stuff in the closet, throwing things in the guest room, and so on. And in the end, that isn’t actually cleaning. So, before taking out all of our seasonal stuff, it was time for a real . . .
I have always had a tendency towards all things preppy. Navy and white. Pink and green. Stripes, polka dots. Monograms. With that being said, I love finding new items and brands that fit my preppy style and buying them as gifts (sometimes) or for myself (more likely…). I know a lot of people with similar style, especially since monogramming became a huge trend a few years back. I wanted to share a preppy girl’s gift guide for the holiday season, . . .
I haven’t really participated in any white elephant gift exchanges in the past few years besides a “goofy” one where everyone gave gag gifts. I wasn’t too into that one, to be honest...I like gift exchanges where people give nice and useful gifts rather than something ironic. Last year someone I worked with told me about one she was in with her friends and it was such a good idea it got me thinking about what themed white elephants would be fun . . .
I did not really do any black Friday shopping, but there are so many great deals out there this weekend! It’s crazy. I feel like this year it started earlier than usual, too. The whole week leading up to Thanksgiving I was receiving emails about pre-Black Friday sales. A deal’s a deal, though! And, it’s always nice to save some money when you’re buying Christmas gifts. The problem for me, though, is that I always see things I want to buy myself . . .
If you are like me and know lots of people who love the beach, you probably have a few people on your list that would love items to use when they’re having fun in the sun. Lucky for you, there is no shortage of unique and exciting gifts to get for someone who loves to be near the ocean. Plus, giving them a beach themed gift will remind them of warmers day ahead as the snow falls and temperatures plummet. Since I myself am a huge beach fan, I have . . .
Tis the season for Christmas decor of all kinds! Which I am very excited about :) One decor item that I typically don’t focus on - but totally should because of all the amazing options out there - are wreaths. While growing up a Christmas wreath meant the same classic green-wreath-with-a-red-bow year after year, now there are so many varieties of wreaths that you can find one to fit any personality or theme. And I love it! I also love how so many . . .
I am unreasonably excited to put up our Christmas tree on Friday. Honestly, I would have done it sooner...but I have a grinch living with me ;) So we will wait. I ordered a bunch of ornaments on Rue La La anyways, so I’m kind of ok with waiting. To be honest, I bought a lot of ornaments for this year - mostly all snowman themed! Between vacations, online sales, and just finding ones I loved around town, they just sort of accumulated. I am looking . . .
