With the holidays coming up, I thought it only fair I share with you some of the things I already love and some of the items I’m absolutely lusting over. Because bloggers get a bad rap for touting things solely for the purposes of getting paid (eh, comes with the territory I suppose…), I want to let you know that none of these companies or items have given me money or compensation for sharing the love. I just think they’re truly bangin’–so let’s hop on in!
Let’s start with LOVE, because these are just a couple things I think would be the perfect gift items.
State shaped cutting boards by AHeirloom. This was gifted to me as a wedding present, but I am so in love with it, I’m already thinking of others states I could buy. They also sell regular cutting boards and an assortment of culinary tools.
Boots No. 7 skincare products. Ever since Korres let me down BIG TIME in the skincare regimen department when they decided to discontinue their White Tea Cleanser, I’ve been on the hunt for a high intensity routine that could stand up to my on-the-go nature. Bingo, kids–we have a winner. So far so good here, but I’m not as in love with it as Korres. Stay tuned for a skincare review + update soon!
This beautiful bracelet came from fellow blogger and friend, Stevie. I was able to catch up with her earlier this week and she gifted me this Kate Spade beauty. Obsessed is putting it lightly. Thanks pretty lady!
*An honorable mention goes out here to the dollar bin at Target. Because I’ve picked up quite a few stocking stuffers already and don’t want to fully disclose to any giftees that may be reading–let’s just say they have a lot of note cards, notepads and organizational goodies you had no idea you needed–UNTIL NOW. Get your booty there and get ya some, along with a Peppermint Mocha in a red cup.
Now? Now is the time for lusting. Remember those items I mentioned that you didn’t know you needed until now? Well here are a few more.
I give to you, the Nordstrom Bobeau Asymmetrical Fleece Wrap. Sarah is the original finder of this cool weather gem, but I have decided it is a necessity after we attended a party and I couldn’t cut my gaze from the girl on the other side of the room wearing it. I want it in every color and that’s the gosh darn truth.
Up next we have some practical arm candy for any stylish tech-savvy lady. Or guy, honestly. This is rad and I need at least one showing up in my stocking. A bracelet that doubles as a charger and allows you to transfer information from iPhone to elsewhere in a matter of seconds–all while using just a bracelet. #yesyesandmoreyes
And last, but certainly not least, is this blushing bridal tote from Kate Spade. Homegirl hits a home-run every season. She also has a devilishly witty holiday tote that talks about martinis and a little frisky business. I’ll stick with this sleek and stylish piece, but you can check the other out here!
What are you loving on and lusting over this season?
