Holiday Gift Guide!

I've just moved into a new place and am going through kind of a rough spot, so my current daily outfits tend to consist of t-shirts and leggings, on a good day. As much as I love sharing my outfits online, it can get a little repetitive, and the pressure to always look "good" is a very real thing. Fashion blogger burnout, I suppose. In the mean time, I would like to keep the blog alive by realizing every post doesn't have to be an outfit post (though we can all agree those are reader favorites).

If you're anything like me, you have yet to do your Holiday shopping. Luckily, I've been browsing websites for inspiration and have put together a little list of great and affordable gift ideas (if you're related to me and reading this--look away)! Photobucket
7) Gorjana Paperclip Ring I love mine!!! As seen on my instagram.
*I was lucky enough to attend a Surface event recently, and they gave one to each attendee! As an iPad lover, I'll be the first to admit that the Surface is great if you're looking to actually do work from your tablet. It has a touch keyboard (and comes with Microsoft Office) so it's perfect for bloggers, college students and girls on the go.

  3. I'd like to second the idea of buying the book "Blog Inc." I borrowed it from the library a few weeks ago and ended up sticky noting almost the entire thing. Such a helpful resource!

    Thanks for putting together this list. All are great ideas! (unfortunately I somehow already finished shopping so I can't use it. lol)

  4. This is a really good gift guide. I love the sunglasses and Asos envelope clutch. I'm kind of even thinking about getting the Blog inc book for myself :)

  13. I have to unsubscribe, all of your posts aren't even about fashion anymore, they are about sponsored content. I am one of many of your readers, and i just want to say i'm disappointed with the quality of your blog over the last year. I do wish you success, but I would like to see you going back to some of the basic posts that won over all the readers - your daily outfits, even if it is a leggings/tshirt combo.

    1. I'm sorry you feel that way. Nothing in this post was sponsored. This was a collection of items I think make great gifts for the holidays and no one paid me to mention any of them. If you're referring to the microsoft surface, i was not paid nor asked to write about it. I was honored to receive one for free and liked it, so decided to include it in the gift guide as I think it would make a great present for people on the go! sorry to see you go.

  14. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WRITING ABOUT THE SEPHORA CREAM LIP STAIN! I bought this last yr while on a trip in Europe and bought 2 because I loved it so much! I lost 1 and use the 2nd one so much that I want to buy about 5 so I never run out! Unfortunately I have hunted down the Sephora website and could never find it! Thanks to you I can now buy it!!! It is definitely amazing! =D

  16. My boyfriend had been talking for whisky stones for a while - and I went looking for them (here in Denmark) only to find out that every single store didn't sell them anymore. I asked them why and they told me that the stones came with a huge risk for the teeth when you drink from your glass. I'm sure you can imagine what happens if the stone decides to slide into your tooth. Anyway! I really like the idea of the stone - just wanted to send out a warning. After all I like the idea of intact teeth more than whisky stones. ;)
