Isn’t this the best time of the year! I grew up in a tropical location, so I am always amazed and aww struck by the winter Christmas. Love to watch houses covered with snow, trees with hint of snow tip and surrounded by Christmas lights. It just is the Christmas wonderland. Not just the decorations, but the whole vibe of things slowing down not because its snowing, but because you want to stop or slow down to enjoy the moment of admiring nature’s beauty in its fullest. I have always been an advent admirer of the wonders of nature, snow is one of them.
I hate blind online shopping when you only have limited time to shop and you want to make the most of the money you are spending. Sharing all the items on my Gift Guide that are on sale or on deal that you can shop on Cyber Monday. It’s a great time to get on board those deals and snag all the gift items you need for Christmas.
Yay! We are off to a beach vacation in the middle of winter here, and now I have to flip my whole wardrobe to find what to pack for the trip. This can be overwhelming! I am there with you girl! Over the years, I have actively tried to pack lighter and lighter to be honest because guess what I have realized that 60% of what I pack is what I wear, huh! Isn’t that weird, so this time around I wanted to share with you some tips of how to pack for a beach vacation and not stress.
And this is the best part of the gift guide. Buying something for your lady love. Not necessarily it can also be for your friend, sister, mother. Going with my gift guide theme this year of gifting something useful, I categorized this one with different personalities because in reality, thats the toughest to discover for your lady! Many reasons for that. As women, we morph into so many personalities, a friend, an advisor, a manager (yes thats very true), a teacher, a buddy, a confidant, a lover, a mother, and probably so much more. So, in all of that its really tough to figure out what exactly your lady loves. So, I thought to simplify it and categorize in terms of what kind of style personality they have, and you can shop for them that way.
This one is actually one of my biggest nightmare and best thing of the year. My husband is not a shopper, you would say mine too. But the weird thing is that he loves to buy great stuff, he loves everything about buying, he just does not have the patience to do it himself. And he is also not a great online shopper, and these days we don’t have time to shop. So, I love to buy him some cool stuff around this time to inspire him to shop more. But this gift guide is not about him, its about all of you who want to buy the perfect gift for him.
When thinking of gifting a friend or family something for their home, we are always struck by the dilemma of what to gift. I chose options that are mostly pretty useful and can be used immediately. But before you guys do start shopping, a great tip is to actually ask, we often just take a wine bottle which is no doubt the best gift, but if you know your budget, and you know they can get great use out of it, why not gift them that.
This season, I have seen so many bloggers and celebrities rocking combat boots. Though I am not a fan of combat boots, I do feel like there is salvation for people like us. You must be thinking, why would she not like combat boots. Well, I do like the comfort they provide and most of all the stability that we need during winter months when its snowing or raining outside.
