Gift Guide: The Homemaker

Hi everyone! I thought since the holidays are upon us (can you believe it?) that I would share some quick gift ideas for those homemakers you know who are always throwing last minuet Christmas parties! You know, the ones with the meals all cooked to perfection and always working on improving their home. These gifts are all great hostess gifts and stay under $55. Enjoy!

These fun ideas are sure to bring a smile to their faces and don't be afraid to put your own twist to these gifts.You could frame the print in a special frame or specialize your wrapping, making it the perfect gift!

Photo via. Late Afternoon

I promised that I would get an Outfit of the Day post up soon so here it finally is! It was such a nice warm day out that no hat or mits were required. I was going out for a small Christmas get together and throw on some dressy basics. The colours were all neutral and blended together perfectly to make a preppy combo!

Sorry the pictures are a bit bright

Had to add a pop of colour somewhere!

Longchamp Love

My biggest weakness will always be a pretty new bag! When I recently saw these beautiful bag I knew I had to have one. They are the perfect work, travel and school tote and they are a good price for the amazing quality in these bags. I am hoping to get the beige le pliage for Christmas and wanted to share these perfect bags with you all! do you have a favourite?

A deep red is perfect for the winter months

My favourite!

Perfect if you want a special Christmas bag

Black is the best neutral colour as it will go with everything

A limited edition bag that would be perfect to tote to dance class

I might not be able to post as much this week as my Internet isn't working well!

Holiday Magic

All pictures by me

I have been a terrible blogger lately and haven't made time for blogging. Don't worry though because I am back and excited to get to posting again! Thank you to all those who continue to follow me and read, even when I don't blog daily. I have really gotten into the Christmas spirit even if it is not officially December yet. The smell of fresh baked goods, Christmas lights twinkling, festive music on the radio and everything glistening makes my toes tingle with excitement. I have even managed to start some Christmas shopping for my sisters and am looking forward to the Christmas holiday more than ever!

Enjoying warm cups of coco by the fire

Bagging it!

photo via. Favim

I love my technology just as much as the next girl and am constantly looking for new ways to improve it by making it more cute and chic. I thought I would share some laptop sleeves that have beautiful patterns and would look amazing while carrying! I love how designers are offering more females cases now. I currently have a bright pink case but will contemplate buying one of these cute covers.

Do you have any favourites?

Ruby Red

I love the colour red but I recently realized I don't own any red iteams. I like the bright pop of colour it can add to any outfit and even small accessories personlize an outfit. These are a few items I would love to add to my wardrobe! Do you have any favourite red items?

Sick Days

Delicious warm drinks

I have been home, sick since Saturday night. Although it has been a nice break to rest and relax it certainly isn't worth it if I can't function well. That is also why I sadly didn't post yesterday but I think I will be back on my feet tomorrow and will have some outfit posts to share! Here is what I did while I was sick...
