Wish Upon a Star

All things celestial are so trendy right now and there's just something so Christmas-y about the stars and a cold winter night. Honestly, one of the things I miss the most about living in the Napa Valley are the amazing stars at night. Austin just has too many city lights to see them!

A few weeks ago I found a Philosophy Cashmere sweater (similar to this one) with the cutest star print and ever since I've been sold on this whole trend. Thankfully, my incredibly trendy best friend has been into star print and zodiac symbols for a while, so I was able to find some super cute options for last minute holiday gifts! Also, so many of these are on sale!

I think by far my favorite thing on this whole list is the gold coin necklace with my zodiac symbol on it. I love jewelry like this that's super easy to throw on with almost any outfit. I also just found out that I get to take a super fun trip early in the new year, so this passport cover and luggage tag would be so perfect as a stocking stuffer. Any traveler on your list would love a cute (and high quality) passport cover! 

Lastly, if you love when your house smells like the holidays this Diptyque candle is THE ONLY way to go! I buy the Christmas tree scent every single year. It does change year to year, but I still have last year's version and they are super similar! If you don't know the brand, these are pretty expensive candles, but I swear that it's worth the splurge. 

I hope this gift guide helps with some of your last minute shopping! I'm wishing on a star tonight that each and everyone of you have an amazing holiday season!

Merry Christmas!

Love you lots,

Ho Ho Holo

 This gift guide is for the person on your list loves glitz and glitter. The holographic trend really took over this summer, but I know of a few people who are still holding on strong to this rainbow sheen.

I have to admit this trend is a little too shiny for my every day taste, but I do L.O.V.E these vases. I could definitely see this making a gorgeous gift with a big bow and some fresh pine springs in the top (maybe some twigs with berries on them). I feel like I keep talking about hostess gifts, but if you need to take something to a Christmas party this is the way to go. It can be displayed immediately and then the vase can be displayed after the holidays!

I'm also always looking for a good wristlet or small bag (Rebecca Minkoff version). I rarely ever carry them on its own, but I pack them full and put them in my travel bags. It keeps everything organized in my carry on and I love this silver one because it would be so easy to see in my backpack.

While searching for all of these beautiful gifts I found this ring with a gorgeous opal stone. While it is one of the more expensive things in my gift guides, if you're buying for that special someone I think it could be a real hit! You know what they say? The best prizes come in small boxes.

Not into the glitz and shine? Check out my Marble gift guide for a more subdued gift.

And if there's someone on your list who's constantly looking to the sky and making wishes on stars check back tomorrow for a starry gift guide!

Merry Christmas!

Love you lots,

Disclaimer: I know that Holographic is a very specific thing and not all of these fall under that category. I've combined opalescent, holograms and holographic all into one.

Marble Christmas!

 Do you have a fashionista on your shopping list? That person who's always looking for something "Instagram worthy" or who spends hours whitening the backgrounds of their images in FaceTune. The person on your list that although we are half way through the month you have no idea what to get them because you're afraid your taste won't meet their very high, social media conscience expectations. I have one word for you: Marble. 

Marble is not a new trend, but it's one that continues to grow year after year. So whether you need a hostess gift or something to wrap and put under the tree one of these gifts are sure to please. The best part is that marble can really work seamlessly into anyone's decor. My house is very modern with a ton of midcentury finishes and this tray sits on our bar cabinet beautifully. On the flipside, my parent's house is more traditional with modern ranch style thrown in and I can easily see this candle fitting in beautifully on a side table in the living room.

Of course, some people may find getting an agenda for the new year a little boring, but babes I'm already shopping for mine! It would be a dream to wake up on Christmas morning to find a gorgeous planner for the next year. A perfectly scheduled week is the gift that keeps on giving!

 And I have to mention this watch because I am obsessed with it! I have a very similar watch, though, so it's not something I will be adding to my collection, but I really hope that some of you do! It's too cute not to share, but I've also shared a similar one down below with a gray strap if the metal rose gold version isn't your thing. 

Check back the next few days for a few more print themed gift guides!

Merry Christmas!

Gifts that Give Back!

This is the season of giving! I absolutely love giving gifts to all of my friends and family. I have a tendency to go overboard every single year (sorry bank account),  but I just can't help it. Now I know giving gifts isn't the only way to show people how much I appreciate and love them, but at Christmas time I take advantage of the season and splurge a little. 

This year, however, I want to make an effort to buy gifts that everyone on my list will enjoy, but will also give back to causes that they care about. It shows how much you know them and helps support charitable companies at the same time. You can also donate to a cause on your families behalf, but if you want a gift for them to open on Christmas morning these are all amazing options. This year I scoured the Internet and all the brands I love to find gift options that support some of my favorite causes. I was so excited to see that Tory Burch is supporting women entrepreneurs and that the Kate Spade On Purpose brand is still going strong!

I wanted this guide to cover everyone on your list. Kiddos will love the plush animals, the Kate Spade On Purpose bags will be a hit with all of the ladies on your list, and a yummy chocolate bar makes an amazing stocking stuffer! I did link a woman's pair of sunglasses, but check out the men's line at Warby Parker because they have so many amazing choices.

My challenge to all of you is to give at least one gift this year that gives back! Hopefully, my family isn't reading this, but I've already bought each of them a bag of Grounds & Hounds coffee from a local shop here in Austin (Support Local, too!)! We are all huge coffee drinkers and puppy lovers, so it's perfect!

Pick a charity and find a way to support them however you can because it's great to give to your loved ones, but also important to give to charity.

Merry Christmas!

Love you lots,

Colorful Christmas: Winter White

I've saved the best for last. At least that's what my mom would say. White is her favorite color and over the years I've started to see why! It's clean and crisp and can definitely be worn in the winter! 

My first recommendation are one of these sets of earrings. You can't go wrong with gifting jewelry and pearls are my everyday go-to. For a more fun look try these Kate Spade pearl hoops. They would look amazing for holiday parties with a white dress if you want to treat yourself before Christmas or beautiful with an LBD for your New Year's parties. However, if you're looking for a classic gift and your budget is a little more, go for these pearl studs. My dad gave me a pair when I was in high school and they've become my every day earrings. They look classic and the white gold studs won't irritate your ears. 

My BF thinks I have a problem because I love blankets. We recently moved and let's just say there were a few boxes dedicated to my collection. I have a fuzzy white one that's super similar to this one and it's one of my faves. Not only does it look great tossed over the back of a couch, but it's super cozy when it's time for a movie night! 

Last year I bought this Kensie coat in the light tan color. I wore it with this striped tee, jeans and a light purple scarf. It's so cozy, but looks so fashionable at the same time. I don't recommend wearing it in the rain, though (learn from my mistakes)! 

Merry Christmas! 

If you missed them don't forget to check out my Millennial Pink and Icicle Blue gift guides from earlier today!

Love you lots,

Colorful Christmas: Icicle Blue

I get it! Not everyone is in love with the Millennial pink trend. Maybe your baby loves blue. I mean I do. 

This shade of blue isn't usually what you would call a "winter" shade, but it was on this year's FW 17 Pantone list and that's basically color trend law. Let's just say I was a little more than thrilled to see it there. Blue has always been my favorite color!

This powder blue is such a flattering color and is a great shade to make a statement with in the colder months. Can we talk about how amazing this coat is? If only it were colder than 80 degrees here in Austin! Throw it over a camel sweater dress and some OTK boots and a structured bag for a classic winter look. Wear a flat or lower heeled boot and you could do some serious Christmas shopping and look amazing doing it! 

I can honestly say that anything on this list would make my Christmas list. I actually just ordered these pajamas (they're $14!) to wear while I'm home for Christmas. I'm going to throw this chunky sweater over them for chillier mornings. It's Texas and flannel PJs are just way too much. I love these because even though they are short and seersucker-ish, the floral border looks just like Poinsettias! 

It's too bad we already have a hot water kettle. Hold on while I go hide it so I can replace it with this Smeg version! I mean it's totally kitchen goals.

Merry Christmas! There's one more color headed your way in a few hours! Check back to see my pick in winter white.

Colorful Christmas: Millennial Pink

Maybe it's the perfectionist in me or the love for a good color-coordinated Instagram photo, I decided that this year my gift guides would be organized in the season's biggest colors.

Shopping for your loved ones can be so tough, especially for that girl who has everything or is just super picky about everything *sheepishly raises hand*.  However, find out what color they love and your shopping options get narrowed down quite a bit! 

 Millennial Pink was by far the biggest color this year. I have to admit that I am not a "pink person," but I love this paler, more nude shade. At the top of my wish list this year is anything by Monica Vinader. Her pieces come in a variety of prices that can fit a number of budgets and most pieces come in silver, gold and rose gold so you can pick something to fit everyone's personal style. The options are almost endless, but you can't go wrong because they are all beautiful! Looking for something just as sparkly, but even lower in price? This Kendra Scott necklace is beautiful and I wear a white version all the time!

I'm also loving this cardigan! I tried to order it during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but it sold out so fast! It's back in stock now and would look so cute with pjs unwrapping gifts or during the day on Christmas with dark jeans and some OTK boots. If you're running around to visit friends and family just throw on this pale pink bag to really indulge in this color trend.

For the perfect stocking stuffers, I would hands down recommend these gummy treats from Sugarfina. They've been trendy for a few years, but they are so good! I don't normally have sugar-y treats around the house, but these are always welcome! Also, for a huge discount you can pick up these Lorac lip glosses. I picked up last year's version and love them so much! Grab this set and break it up for each of your gal pals! Tie them up in a bow on top of the gift for a cute extra little something.

Merry Christmas! Check back later for more gifts in a new colors.

Love you lots,
