Holiday Gift Guides

Hi Everyone!

I cannot believe we are already 5 days into December!  With the holidays right around the corner I thought it would be a good idea to pull together some items for gift giving!  I know this time of year can be overwhelming sometimes with all you have to do.  I hope that these ideas can help you out.  I broke down the gifts into ideas for her, him as well as some home items that could be great gifts for anyone!  All the items I chose are either on sale or great deals.

Cyber Monday Deals-My fave time of the year!

Hi loves! Happy Monday (says no one ever, unless its cyber Monday!)

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving.  Mine was relaxing, filled with tons of food and family time.  How was your holiday?!

I am so excited to share with you some of the great deals I have come across.  I am a deal shopper, always have been.  I get such a thrill knowing I didn’t pay full price for something LOL.  Here are some of the sites I will be shopping today!

Best Damn Beauty by Nicole Guerriero

I have yet to try any of her products, but if you follow beauty bloggers like I do then you know she is amazing and any products she is making are also going to be awesome.  I have read great reviews on her lip mask.  You can get 50% off your order PLUS free shipping with promo code NICOLE!  Now is the time to check out her stuff!  Here is the lip mask and also the face beauty oil I am going to buy!

West Elm

By far one of my favorite online home shops.  I think they always have great prices and they always have the items I try to find in the stores near me but are never successful finding them.  Here are some things I just love and with the 50% off Cyber Monday promo you cannot resist!  I love this Velvet duvet cover and shams, comes in 2 colors.  I love these Gold Terrariums, super cute accent decor.  You can add succulents in it or even some pretty stones of candles, easy and cute.  I also really love this Terrace Coffee Table which is half price!  They have tons of furniture, rugs, bedding, mirrors etc., all on sale as well.  If you are in need of some home goods I would check them out!

Tory Burch 

I only shop Tory Burch when I find good deals.  You can get some cute bags and shoes on sale right now.  I love these Sidney Boots and these Nola High Top sneakers. I love cross body bags because they are great for day or night.  This Harper Flat Wallet Cross Body one is perfect and a great price!

Tarte and Dermstore.com

I have always had a love for Tarte Cosmetics.  My love really grew for them once I did some free lancing for them.  I learned so much about their products and got to try a bunch of them out.  I just love how so many of their cosmetics wear, last, and are not filled with harsh chemicals.  They are vegan friendly (which also makes me happy) and they definitely have some of my favorite go-to products.  Everything on their site is 25% off with promo code MONDAY.  They also have the best gifts, really cute travel size gift packages, perfect for any makeup lover. I was searching and came across Dermstore.com.  They also sell Tarte products and also have 25% off your entire purchase with promo code HOLIDAY.   If you want to get a bunch of different products you may want to check out Dermstore instead.  To start I LOVE Tartes’ Amazonian Clay Blush, it last all day long and comes in amazing colors! Maracuja Oil is my all time fave.  Tarte also has it in a travel size, which I love, so I normally get that size along with the normal size and use it every day!  I am a bronzer lover and cannot go without their Park Ave Princess one!  Okay, I could literally list out another 20 items that I have used and loved but you get the picture haha.  If you are just looking for Tarte then go direct to their site but if you want to buy other brands, such as:Beauty Blender, Juice Beauty, Clarisonic, or Lorac (just to name a few) then head over to DermStore.

Bag, Borrow or Steal

Want to rent or buy gently used designer bags?! I love this site.  They are having a great sale right now.  Here are some LV bags I have been eyeing and they are marked down, today only! Here and Here

Sweaty Betty

Cannot forget some good work out clothes marked down! I love their stuff, and they have 25% off everything, no code needed.

Teeki

Another site I adore for workout/yoga clothing.  They have 35% off their site PLSU $20 store credit for orders over $100 AND Free Legwarmers with promo code TEEKICASH20.  You should def check this one out!  I have never seen these leggings go for 35% off before.

I hope you all enjoy your awesome shopping day!  What can be better then shopping and not having to wait in lines?!

Staple item…Denim shorts

Hi dolls!

Happy hump day.  In just a few short days it will be a long weekend (and July already!) so crazy.  I just cannot wait for this long weekend.  Tom and I are going to escape to the Adirondacks for some fun outdoorsy activities.  Our friend has a cabin on a lake up there, this could not have come at a better time!  Toms schedule has been crazy town so it will be nice to see friends and relax a bit this weekend.  Plus, it is really our last weekend to do anything and see people before our trip! The following weekend is the weekend before we leave which will be full of all the last minute shopping and packing we will need to do since we leave that following Friday, right after work!  I cannot believe how fast the time has gone by!  Any fun plans for this long weekend??

Now onto this post.  I just love denim shorts, you can dress them up or down and they go with just about anything.  I really need to get some new ones for this trip and came across these great deals and thought I would share.  You can never have too many denim shorts, right??collage

SheIn Outfits

Happy Hump Day!

I hope you all had a nice weekend, weather was amazing! I just love the heat (I know some think that is so crazy) but I really do.  Put me outside in the sun (preferably near a body of water, or sprinkler lol) and I am so happy and content.  Something about how relaxing it is just makes me happy.

So I have recently been loving this site, SheIn, and I needed to share some things about it.  I love how cute everything is but what is even better are the prices!  I mean everything is affordable and they really have the latest fashions available too.  I thought I would share some super cute outfits that I plan on getting for my trip!

SheIn -Your Online Fashion Long Sleeve Dress

Saks Off 5th

Happy Tuesday!

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend!  I cannot believe it is already MAY! Time has been flying by a little too fast.  I love this month, mainly because its my birthday month 🙂 but also because its the time when the weather in NY finally starts to get warm enough to not wear tons of layers.

As I am sure you have all figured out by now I love shopping and when its a good deal I just cannot resist to talk about it and share it with everyone!  I think its silly to pay full retail for most things.  Saks Off 5th is having an amazing sale with up to 70% off plus their regular deals are usually pretty awesome.

These are just a few of the items I think are nice and versatile for summer.  I am just in such a spring/summer mood with items I am currently buying.  I just love simplistic easy to wear outfits  for once the weather changes and gets nice and hot (my fave!)

Happy shopping loves!

Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH

Chicnova Clothing

Hi loves, Happy Hump Day! I hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far.  My week hasn’t been too bad, mainly because of the gorgeous weather we are finally seeing!

I am excited to share with you an awesome site with amazing prices and deals called Chicnovaicon!  I was shocked when I saw how great their prices are! I did some research because prices this great usually mean they are coming in from overseas and I was right.  I read a bunch of reviews and most of what I read was positive.  Shipping taking a bit longer was the biggest negative comment I read but other then that the site seams pretty legit.  I have not yet placed an order with them but plan to do so and will give a review after.

I thought I would share what I have in my cart.  I have been trying to slowly purchase new items for our fun Euro trip coming up in July.  Here are some things I just couldn’t live without!

Off the shoulder mini dress

I just love dresses in the summer months and I think all of these are super cute and versatile.  When you travel for a long period of time you want to make sure you bring things that you can wear a few times without looking like your wearing the same outfit over and over LOL.  I just love that skirt because it can be worn so many different ways and look different each time.

Have a great rest of the week!

Beach getaway outfits

Hi all!

I hope all of you are having a great week so far!  I thought a post about a beach was needed since this “spring” has been rather cold here in NY lately.  I mean it snowed the other day…and they are calling for possible snow again this Saturday?! Ugh, I just need to dream of beaches to get me through this haha.

Well my hubby and I officially booked our summer vaca!! We are going to Denmark (to visit family) and since we are able to go for 3 weeks we decided to wrap in Italy and Iceland to the trip (I am so pumped!).  So we will do some swimming and beach days while in Copenhagen but we are going to Rome and Amalfi Coast in Italy (beach attire all day!) so I thought this post would be perfect.  I need to find some super cute outfits for the beach, day as well as nights out on the town and love all of these options.

Here are some items I came up with. Enjoy!
