Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts She NEEDS (not wants)

So many gift guides are for the "cute" items that someone may WANT but this guide is focused on what they may NEED.  By NEED I mean every single girl should have all of these gifts.  I searched and scoured products that aren't just pretty but are a solution to a problem.

1. The ShhhowerCAP

If you're like me.. you try to stretch out your blow-out for as many days as possible but traditional shower caps are always letting me down!  I have never found one that works quite right for me, that is until I discovered these babies. The shower cap has been reinvented, ladies and they are amazing.  The material is made with hydrophobic material so that none of your hair gets wet.. at all.  Oh, and they are so adorable that you don't look like an old grandma wearing them. So many cute selections here. 

2. Hand-knitted Mermaid Blanket.

Yup, every women needs their mermaid blanket to stay cozy and watch Hallmark Christmas Movies while feeling like a lazy mermaid.  There are many versions of this blanket coming from China that are not-so-soft and this one is super soft, hand-knitted and adorably purple.

3. The book, Girl Logic by Iliza Schlesinger.

Iliza hilarious and gives great advice to women, explaining why our "Girl Logic" sometimes guides us in every necessary direction and at the same time gets in the way.  So funny, insightful, and entertaining, every girl needs to read this book!

4. Avocado Huggers

If you eat Avocado, you will NEED this.  I am constantly saddened by the number of (half) avocados that I find wasted by throwing them in a plastic bag.  The Avocado Hugger hugs half the avocado to keep it fresh longer.  Genius.  Now I want Avocado toast.

5. Flavor God Startup Spice Rack
My husband got me these last year and it was one of my favorite gifts! So many spices are loaded with so much sodium, artificial flavors, and just plain junk.  Flavor God spices are gluten-free, kosher, and a lot of the mixes are salt-free as well!  These spices help me get more creative in my cooking while keeping everything healthy.

Hello, November!

Fall is in full swing and I am loving the added layers.  Although summer is my fave temperature season.. fall is my favorite fashion season!  I love layers, booties, ponchos, trenches... and everything fall.  Bring it on!

Some updates on my life... Gavin loved trick-or-treating and is an all-around amazing toddler.  Gsh, I love this age!    And like every proud mama, I'm sharing his face for the world to see... :)

Happy November, y'all!

Yes, You Can Wear White After Labor Day

    I am here to give you permission to wear white after labor day! This fashion rule idea of "no white after labor day" came about in the 20th century so this supposed fashion rule is over 100 years old.  I for one, am not going to pack away all my white clothes in the fall/winter because some uptight woman said it wasn't OK to wear white, haha. 
     I am embracing my daring fashion sense, and am in love with this white dress find at the Express Outlet on clearance At Clinton Premium Outlets .  In the summer, it was perfect as-is and for an appropriate workday, I layered a dress shirt underneath to fare the cooler weather. 
Please wear your white dresses, white pants, and white everything this fall/winter to stop this age-old tradition.  Just don't wear legging as pants. :)
