It's safe to say that I'm a huge homebody, and although it might seem like I go out a lot, I love to stay in.  As a natural introvert, staying in recharges my batteries, and I genuinely enjoy being alone--surfing the Internet, watching YouTube, editing a video, etc.  That's the stuff that keeps me going so I can go out and be social and spend time with people.

That said, if there is a homebody on your list--or you're just sneaking in a few last minute gifts for yourself--this post is for you!  I'm totally eyeing that olive scarf for myself, and am loving all things copper for the home (ie. those cute salt & pepper shakers!).  And of course that cozy cardigan has my name written all over it!

I have that fluffy eye mask (which also comes in white) and purchased it right before our trip to Italy for our overnight flight, but also wear it on a semi-nightly basis and for weekend sleep ins.  I would say sleeping with an eye mask takes some getting used to, but really helps me fall asleep, if I'm having trouble, and stay asleep longer.

Happy shopping! xo

I'm back with the second round of holiday gift guides and today we're talking about the special ladies in your life--be it your best girlfriend, Mom, sister or whomever is your nearest and dearest.  I've got a variety of fun things I know some of my closest girlfriends would love (because they told me) + things I already love or would love to get myself.

I just got a new phone, and would love a marble phone case.  The rose gold knot bangle is so pretty (and comes in yellow gold & silver too)--I have a friend who has one and every time she wears it, I'm eyeballing it.  These leggings are the comfiest pair I've ever owned and I actually gifted my bestie with a pair last year and she loved them.

I'm all about either nude or dark manis, and I'm on my second bottle of the Essie colour above
.  You can always find some beautiful stuff on Etsy like this woven wall hanging, and how pretty are those rough diamond studs!?  This satin cami PJ set would be super cute too & this glass and gold booze decanter is gorgeous + functional.

Finally, this is my favourite red lip colour (as seen on me here), the chic water bottles come in a variety of colours and prints and these are my absolute favourite undies--they are comfortable, lie smooth under the sheerest of clothing and don't dig in!

PREVIOUS GIFT GUIDES:  Hostess Gifts Under $30



I love, love, love the holidays and one of my favourite parts is the parties!  I have a few lined up for the season already, including a girls night in with Christmas Sangria (it was a pajama party last year) and of course the annual Secret Santa that we host here.

That said, we all know how much work goes into party planning, and at this extra special time of year, I like to gift the hostess with a little something.  Imagine spending weeks planning a party and having your girlfriends show up with a little sumthin' sumthin' upon arrival?  I mean, who wouldn't love that.

Of course, it doesn't have to be expensive, just thoughtful, but I tend to keep it between $10 to $30, so I've put together a bunch of my favourite things to give (and get!) for your favourite hostess.  I will also be putting together more gift guides as we get deeper into the season, so if there is anything you'd like to see, please let me know!
