Gift Guide for Him

Nothing compares to the warm fuzzy feeling you get when you find someone the perfect gift. But there always seems to be someone on your list that’s impossible to buy for, right? Annnnd it always seems to be the guys that are the most difficult.

This year, I’ve compiled all of my favorite men’s products into this gift guide, so you can easily shop for the difficult guy on your list, whether it’s your dad, brother, or boyfriend.

My philosophy when buying gifts is always the same: find something that he wouldn’t buy for himself. I always choose fun over functional when it comes to gifting, because if he needs something functional, he can probably buy it for himself. I’ve included both stocking stuffers and larger gifts.  Read more

A Shopping Confession: How to Shop for Used Clothing

Why I Buy Used Clothing & My Best Tips for Shopping Used

This is a post I’ve been toying with creating for a very long time. I don’t know why the idea of sharing the fact that I buy used clothing feels embarrassing, because it’s 100% not.

When you read a ton of blogs that continuously feature designer items, it can be hard to remember that that’s not exactly normal. Bloggers – the ones who make real money from blogging – can afford to purchase more expensive items, because technically it’s an investment in their business. I don’t make money from blogging, although I hope that someday I will!

So, I buy used.

What to Wear for Thanksgiving: Dressed Up

What to wear for Thanksgiving: Dressed Up in Festive Red

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I’ve got Michael Buble blaring, flannel shirts on repeat, and my Amazon cart full of Christmas decor. But before other people will think it’s socially acceptable for any of those things, we have to get through Thanksgiving dinner.

This is always a fun time to get dressed up in your fall finest and enjoy grandma’s homemade stuffing. This year, we’re spending Thanksgiving with Joe’s family, and obviously we’ll want to dress the part! My family keeps things pretty casual at the holidays, so I’ll be sharing a much more casual and cozy look for Thanksgiving on Friday – stay tuned!

Today, though, it’s all about the festive red and the warm textures that make the transition from fall to Christmas so much fun.
