Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

GIFT GUIDE // FOR THE JETSETTER


PJ Tank + PJ Pants  - When I'm at home, my PJ's usually look like one of J's old tee shirts and a pair of boy shirts, but when I travel, I like to wear something that looks a little more appropriate for answering the door for room service, etc.  This set is not only so cute, but it's also on major sale!  Perfect for any season - just throw on a cozy cardigan for cooler months!

Gold Comb  - After a long flight, my hair starts to look a bit stringy and I don't always have the option of freshening up at the hotel.  Having a comb in my bag and quickly running it through my waves on the way to a meeting gives my hair the perfect touch up.

OUAI Haircare Set  - I can't even begin to tell you about my obsession with OUAi.  I've been using a few of their products for the last 2-3 months and it has completely changed my hair.  The Repair Shampoo + Conditioner is amazing, but this set has so many of my other favorites that are perfect for traveling with!

AWAY Carry On  - Seriously, there is no better carry on than this one!  Not only is it lightweight with 360 wheels, but it also charges your phone!!  Before each trip, I charge my carry on for a couple of hours and it gives my phone three full charges while in the airport or hopping in and out of ubers.  It's worth every penny!

Card Holder  - I love a chic wallet, but traveling with a card holder is such a must.  It makes carrying your ID, credit cards, and cash so convenient.  Plus, who doesn't love little, leather luxuries.  

Renewal Oil  - Obsessed.  That's all.  Okay, seriously though, I've been using this product for a couple of years, but it's one of my must-haves for home or travel.  I use it at night as part of my skincare routine, but I also use it each morning and give it time to soak into my skin before putting on my makeup for the day.  It's such a must for your skin after a long flight, too!

Notebook  - I live and breathe by notebooks these days.  I can keep a lot of things in my inbox, notes app on my phone, etc., but there's nothing like physically writing things down.  It helps keep me so organized.  I have this chic, little notebook and it's the perfect size for traveling!

Backpack - I've had my eye on this backpack for a couple of months and want it to badly!  (Hint, hint Santa.)  A backpack is so perfect for traveling and takes the pressure off of lugging around a large tote.  I'm hoping to add this one or one like it to my closet really soon!

 Headphones - I can't travel without headphones.  Being able to block out noise on a flight is a must - especially a long one.  These headphones are perfect, bluetooth compatible, and you can even take phone calls using them while on the go.  Definitely the perfect gift for the jet setter in your life!

 Water Bottle - I just started using these water bottles about a year ago and they have quickly become my favorite.  Not only are they so cute, but I love drinking out of a glass bottle.  Easy to throw on your bag and throw in the dishwasher once you're home!

 Cable Knit Socks - Enough said.  Having a pair of cozy socks to throw on during a long flight is a must.  I have the OTK version of these and wear them all the time at home.  I want this pair next - they're so cute!

 Cashmere Scarf - There's nothing better than a chic, cashmere scarf to cozy up with on the plane.  Also, investing in a neutral one (in my opinion, duh) is perfect because it will pair so well with all of your travel outfits while you're there!  This one is so cute and such a great price point, too!

 Lace Bralette - Hands down my favorite brand for bralettes.  I have this one and a few others and they're so comfortable for every day wear, but especially traveling.  I have this specific one in so many colors and wear them all often!  You definitely won't regret investing in this bralette!

 Lip Treatment - I've always been a chapstick girl, but over the last few months I've really gravitated towards this lip treatment.  I keep one on my nightstand, one in my handbag, one in my bathroom drawer - I mean, it's kind of a problem.  A good problem! This one is so perfect for keeping your lips moisturized during a flight or road trip and using before bed each night after a long day.  It's such a staple for me!

Over the next couple of weeks, I'm putting together a HUGE giveaway of my TEN FAVORITE THINGS and a lot of these items are included, so be sure to stay tuned on my instagram for more details!  

Thanks so much for stopping by, x.

HOLIDAY STYLE WITH DAVID YURMAN






This time of year, there's nothing better than getting all dressed up and heading out to a fun, holiday party.  I've always been a believer that accessories totally make an outfit and layering David Yurman is no exception.  Mixed Metals, classic cuffs, and statement earrings all make perfect details to add to any holiday look this season.  After investing in a few classic David Yurman pieces, I'm starting to gravitate towards some of the statement and unique pieces.  I chose pieces from the Gold Gift Shop and this 'I Love You' Cuff is so understated + beautiful.  It would make the perfect holiday gift that you would love for years to come.  It's definitely my favorite piece in the DY holiday collection and what I hope to find under the Christmas Tree this year!  (Hint, hint J!)  I also love these drop, statement earrings for adding a little glam to any look.  Check out the rest of the holiday collection HERE and go ahead and start sending those subtle hints over to your husband, friends, and family!
Thanks to David Yurman for partnering on this post!

WHAT TO SHOP FOR ON EBAY: DENIM.


Denim: MOTHER | Jacket: Levi's | Booties: Stuart Weitzman
{all available on eBay for a fraction of the in-store cost!}

When thinking about what to get the beautiful women in my life for Christmas, I always try to gravitate towards something classic.  I want to give them something they'll get use out of again and again and something they'll love for years to come.  With most of my girlfriends, I know their favorite brands, what size they are, and how they like things to fit.  A lot of people stray from gifting clothes because they're nervous about all of those things, but then you know the person you're buying for, it's definitely a go-to!  There's always one word that comes to mind for a classic, timeless gift that any girl would love - and that's DENIM.  What's the one thing we all reach for in our closet on a weekly (or sometimes daily) basis?  A great pair of jeans.  Over the years, I've really narrowed down my favorite brands, styles, and fit and eBay has such an amazing selection of all of those categories.  Here are a few of my favorites:

Mother Denim
FRAME
Citizens of Humanity
7 For All Mankind

It's so easy to shop by size, new with tags, buy it now options, and free shipping options.  In fact, 81% of all merchandise sold on eBay is new and 88% of items have the 'Buy it Now' option where no bidding is necessary.  Most of the time when one of my girlfriends tells me how much they a pair of jeans I have on, it's typically not a style or wash that's still available, because denim is so timeless.  My response is usually 'try eBay!'  Or around this time of year, I find it for them using eBay's search capabilities, wrap it up, and put it under the tree.  Most of the time, you're able to find the exact item you're looking for at a great price.  It's my one-stop shop for a lot of household things and vintage items, too!  When thinking about holiday gifts this year, be sure to check eBay first for price match guarantee and fast, free shipping!
