I know this is pretty last minute, but I know there are some procrastinators out there just like me! So from one procrastinator to another, here is what I’ve stumbled upon on my quest for quirky gifts for my friends and family! Did I forget to mention that these gifts are all under $60! Gifting on a budget just became less stressful. You’re welcome!

Covet: Madewell

Beauty in the basic. Madewell has got the basics down! I appreciate when designers reinvent the basic and turn it into something unique. Is it just me or do you also get excited when you see a retailer’s catalog in your mail? I love drawing inspiration from Madewell’s detailed catalogs! Every outfit is styled with grace and the photography is just so dreamy. I just wanted to quickly share my favorite cold weather clothing pieces from the Fall/Winter collection!

My all-time favorite piece out of this Fall/Winter collection is the black leather jacket (the price makes me cry a little inside, but the quality in the leather is noice). I’ve been dying to buy a new one and so far I can just dream about Madewell’s perfection.

 
Over the hump and on to the weekend! I am READY to unwind and lay in bed ALL WEEKEND!

Gone to the Countryside

IMG_5078.JPG

For about a week and half I traveled out to Roundtop, TX to attend Zapp Hall for work and a little bit for pleasure. For those who don’t know, Zapp Hall is an antique show that’s pops up twice a year. Despite the hot weather for majority of the time out there, I felt inspired by all the things I saw. If you ever venture to Texas during the antique show times, I highly recommend stopping by. Pick up some unique goodies for your home!

Here are snippets from my trip (all taken with my handy dandy iphone5)

I met my ALL-TIME favorite DIY blogger! Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth! I was fan-girling hard and trying not to seem too nervous to ask for a picture. She was out there doing a DIY Butterfly Crown (I’m wearing one)!IMG_5082.JPG

Last Minute Gift Guide for Her & Him

For all you last minute Christmas shoppers out there, here are a few of my gift ideas you can purchase online. And perfect timing for you because most of these retailers are offering two day shipping for a reasonable price!

gifts for her

1. Forever 21 Ultra Cozy Robe – $19.80 // Any girl would love to be hugged by a cloud. And that’s exactly what a robe will make her feel like.

2. Rebecca Minkoff Hudson Moto Mini in Rose Gold- $265 // The perfect small crossbody bag that is great to dress up for the holidays or even for casual days.

3. Urban Decay’s Naked 3 Palette – $52 // Who doesn’t love getting Naked? The colors on this palette are perfect for all skin tones!

4. Kate Spade Stacy Wallet– $128 // I love the sleek look of this wallet. It’s super versatile. How can a girl say no?

5. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera– $100 // I’m not going to lie. This is something I would love to get for Christmas! They’re unique memory-keepers and I can think of so many ways I could use them to decorate my space. I’m such a girl 😀

6. Pen and Penguin Coffee Print– $18 // Girls and coffee are a no brainer. This cute print looks even better hung on the wall. And at very affordable price, it will dress up her living space.

gifts for him 2

1. Gucci Guilty Pour Homme– $62 // I personally love the smell of this cologne on men, but any cologne that you find is fitting will be appreciated! What man doesn’t like to smell expensive and fancy?

2. Herschel Supply Co. ‘Novel’ Duffel Bag– $80 // A sturdy duffle is perfect for a man who has a knack for traveling.

3. Northface Rivington Hoodie– $110 // A good sturdy jacket for the colder weather is something any man could use.

4. Fossil Townsman Chronograph Leather Watch– $125 // Classy and sleek. Whether it’s for your brother, dad or boyfriend you can’t go wrong with a simple watch. They won’t always have to pull out their phone to check the time.

5. Ray Ban Aviator Flash Lenses– $160 // He’ll thank you when he’s driving with the sun in his face.
