2019 Holiday Gift Guide

2019 Holiday Gift Guide

It’s December, and not just December 1st it’s like the second week of December, which means we’re only a little over 2 weeks till Christmas. That means…. this year’s almost over, this decade’s almost over and my gift guide for the holidays is really behind! Has anyone else felt like this November and December have felt super rushed? *slowly raises hand*

With a later Thanksgiving on the calendar, my birthday, a trip to New York and work commitments, it’s no surprise I’m late to the gift guide party, but hey, I’ve shown up fashionably late.

This year I’m focusing on some of my favorite pieces and go-to’s for my personal style and home that I think would be perfect gifts. I’ve been loving monochromic looks so much this year, I  decided to wrap them all in shades of rainbow for a chic twist.

For the well groomed

We’re in the age of skin routines and serums, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. Although I’m not the as savvy as most, I  never turn down a good product. Hair products from Jack Henry and Allure by Chanel are my favorite grooming must-haves.

For the stylish shopper

Uniqlo was my go-to for refreshing my wardrobe this year and it’s home to the perfect closet staple, without breaking the bank. Layering this monochromatic pieces will keep them warm all winter.

For the new home owner

Coffee table books have always been an easy and affordable way to add easy decor to a new space. Every area of interest or celebrity has a coffee table book now, so it won’t be hard to find the perfect one for your loved one. Some favorites include The Andy Warhol Diaries and Appetizer.

For the entertainer

As a lover all of things dinner party, charcuterie boards and other serveware pieces are always a welcome present. Stores like World Market and Anthropologie have a wide selection of designs. Don’t forget to add the small knives and cutlery to complete the gift.

For the cozy homebody

A candle for Christmas…. groundbreaking I know, but who doesn’t love a candle?! My new favorite sent for the home is Otto by Malin+Goetz. Although a bit of splurge, it’s well worth it to me, and you’ll know it’s a gift they’ll love and use, daily!

The good news is that there’s still time to shop local, online or let’s face it, Amazon Priming your gifts! Hopefully these ideas get you going in the right direction. My advice is to go with something that they’ll use. There are so many gifts out there that will never be used and be sitting in a drawer come January!

Keep out for my holiday posts coming soon!

Happy Holiday Shopping,

Dark Times

Dark Times

Can you believe how quickly this month, let alone, this year has flown by? I blinked my eyes and it’s practically November! It’s safe to say I’ve fallen on dark times. Don’t be alarmed though, I’m only referring to the fact that I’ve changed my hair.

Perhaps it’s my affinity for Riverdale or just the need to change things up but I’ve crossed over to the “dark side” as they say. I’ve always loved the power of a new look and this hair color is the perfect way to transition into fall. It’s making me more eager to break out the boots and sweaters.

To usher in this darker era, I’m wearing one of my favorite H&M sweaters from last year. The graphic camel colored stripes are a great pop and blended in perfectly with this Lincoln Park backdrop. I’m so excited to start working with photographer Callie Craig, who captured some amazing shots of my new look.

I’m still getting used to the darker locks but it’s a great change that I’m excited to style and work with! Check out more of Callie’s work on her website. You’ll be able to see more of her shots here shortly. Another post coming later on in the week!
