Fewer, Better Gifts

One of my favorite things about the holidays is giving + receiving (#letsbehonest) gifts.  I love to find the perfect thing to give my husband, best friend, sister, etc, all while picking out a few favorites for myself, of course.  A lot of people completely avoid the hustle and bustle of the crowds and lines, but I LOVE it.  That's something my mom instilled in me a long time ago and I contribute a lot of my shopping addiction to her. (#thanksmom) But, I wouldn't take anything for those memories.  That's half the fun before getting to watch your friends and family open their gifts!
The older I get, the more I try to steer clear of spending a lot of money on trendy things and really focus on purchasing investment pieces.  Because I appreciate that in my own wardrobe, I try to do the same for my friends and family.  I want to give them something that will last a long time and keep it's value.  This year, Cuyana is all about fewer, better gifts.  We've all experienced the frustration of not knowing what to give, so Cuyana is solving that issue with their SHARE A HINT gift guide.  For me, J doesn't have to wonder too much about what to buy me since I'm constantly telling him about the latest thing I have my eye on, but I still love to leave him little hints around the house.  It's just a fun, cute way to share in preparing for the holidays with your loved ones.  If you haven't already, head over to Cuyana, browse their luxurious pieces and create a little hint for why that piece is perfect for you or the perfect thing from you!

P.S. - Don't forget to shop my favorite tory boots that are all on sale + the 40% off sale at Nordstrom!

Cheers to the weekend, lovelies and as always, thanks so much for stopping by! x.
