Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for Him

Gift giving can be so difficult especially when it feels like your guy has everything! These are some items I know my own boyfriend would appreciate for Christmas this year. I love spoiling my loved ones, so Christmas is such a fun time for me. I love picking out items that I know they will adore, but sometimes picking out items for my guy isn’t the easiest task. That’s why I came up with this gift guide to share with you to make this gift giving season a little bit easier!
The photos are clickable, but you can also check out the links below if you’d like.
  1. The Art of Shaving 4 Piece Kit – This is the ultimate starter kit for your man’s shaving routine. It’s got everything he needs from the cream to the balm, and even a fancy brush to help clean up his face. This kit is unscented which is great just in case he’s got sensitive skin.
  2. Beer Making Kit – Does your dude like beer? Then get him this beer making kit! Let him have some fun, and get him a gift he will actually want to use.
  3. Bose SoundLink Speaker System – A wireless speaker that he can take anywhere with him is great. Whether he’s outdoors, outside grilling, or just lounging this will become something he uses everyday. You just might use it too.
  4. Will Leather Goods Classic Leather Belt – A good leather belt that will actually last is a great gift. I’m actually thinking about snagging this for my boyfriend because he’s worn the same belt since we met! I also really love the color of this one, but you could grab it in black as well.
  5. Patagonia Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Pullover – Don’t think your guy doesn’t want a cozy sweater too. These synchilla pullovers by Patagonia are some of the best, and I swear he’s going to love it. They come in all sorts of colors and prints, so you can customize for whomever you’re shopping for.
  6. Edox Men’s Les Vauberts Watch – Get him a watch that he can wear everyday. I love the leather wrap on this one, and that it has a fairly simple face. If he’s more into the chain links, but still likes simplicity then check out this one –> Bulova Men’s Watch
  7. Game Of Thrones Box Set – Maybe your significant other is super into Game of Thrones. Sure you could get him the box sets of the shows, but better yet get him the books! He’ll be able to read the books before the last bit of this season comes out.
  8. Deluxe Watch Case – My boyfriend has a few watches, and I realized he doesn’t actually have anywhere to put them. Instead of having him put his watches anywhere why not get him a case to keep them all safe and organized? May not seem like the most exciting gift, but it is useful! For a more affordable options click here ($10!!!) –> Watch Case in Black
  9. Whiskey Stone Set – If you’re looking for a stocking stuffer, or trying to put a neat gift together grab this whiskey stone set. If your guy likes whiskey, or just hates having his drinks watered down this is a great gift. Throw them in his stocking, or pair them with glasses and whiskey for a nice gift set.
  10. BearPaw Peeta Slipper – My boyfriend is begging me for slippers. We have all tiled floor, and it gets cold! Get him these slippers to keep him cozy around the house. I love these slippers (even I want a pair!), and I like the price. Sorry UGG, but over $100 for slippers is ridiculous.

That’s the Men’s list be sure to check out my other holiday gift guides here!

Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for Her

Whether you’re shopping for your girlfriend, sister, mom, or any woman in your life here’s a gift guide with a few things they may want for Christmas. In my opinion shopping for women is pretty easy. Get them candles, beauty and skin care items, and anything cozy. They will no doubt be happy with pretty much anything. However, each of these items could fit a different persons personality, so pick out what you think what you think they would like the most. All the items above are clickable. Hover over the photos, and click the + sign! For the three items that aren’t check out the links below, or the carousel at them bottom of this post. Happy shopping!

  1. Farm Fresh Spa Experience Tin – Everyone likes a good spa treatment. What’s better than being able to have your very own spa experience at home? Get the woman in your life this spa kit for Christmas, and she will be ecstatic by all the goodies in this tin.
  2. Gold 2018 Planner – If you’ve got a busy gal maybe get her this pretty planner for the new year. There’s nothing like starting the year by getting organized, and this is a gift that’s extremely useful. As a blogger I can tell you first hand having one of these is mandatory for productivity.
  3. Plum Pretty Sugar Robe – Get her a robe she can wear all year-long. You can always go for a bathrobe, or even a shorter robe. However, I love the romantic print on this one, and she will probably end up wearing this everyday. I know I want one!
  4. TopShop Pom Pom Beanie – The cutest beanie for the winter. I love the faux fur pom-pom that comes on top of this beanie. It gives the hat an extra cozy feel, and it’s even on trend.
  5. Tartelette 2 In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette – I have been eyeing this palette for sometime, but I think it’s the perfect palette for everyone. It’s perfect for the fall and winter time, but it’s also full of neutral colors that would work all year-long.
  6. Insta Pot Duo Pressure Cooker – Do you have a cook in your life that may be a little tired of all the cooking, and the cleaning? Get them the infamous Insta Pot for easy dinners that won’t cost them their time. This pot does it all, and it’s under $150 which is a steal when you think about all that it can do.
  7. Stila “Stay All Day” Liquid Lipstick – Perla – Stila has some great lipsticks that aren’t too pricey. Grab this Stay All Day lipstick in Perla for a perfect pout that she will be able to wear all day. This color is super wearable in its neutral pink shade, but have a look at the other colors as well!
  8. Sam Edelman Augustine Leopard Loafers – If you haven’t been living under a rock these past few months then you would know that these have been the shoe of the season! These loafer style mules are both chic and comfortable. I love the leopard print of these ones because they’re a subtle statement shoe to add to any woman’s wardrobe.
  9. Cozy Plaid Scarf – A scarf is the perfect gift when you’re not exactly sure what to get the woman you’re shopping for. This mixed print one is perfect. I love the mixed prints, and although it’s cozy it can be worn through early spring.
  10. Kopari Coconut Discovery Kit – Kopari is a newer skin care brand that made its way into the market this past year. Packed with Organic coconut oil their products are great for your skin. Give the gift of healthy glowing skin this year with this kit that includes four different items to help give the lady in your life a healthy glow.

L’Occitane + Rifle Paper Co. A Dream Collaboration

**This post is sponsored by L’Occitane & Rifle Paper Co.**


Hell lovelies!

I’m so excited to share this exciting collaboration with all of you! The French skin care company L’Occitane has amazing products in general; however, this collaboration in particular is super exciting. I love Rifle Paper Co. all of their stationery is beautiful, and they out did themselves for this collab. The packaging of each of these products is so pretty I almost don’t want to use them for fear of messing them up! I love these floral patterns for Fall, and all of the scents are heavenly too.

The Nourishing Hand Cream Trio were the products I was most excited to try out. Once Fall comes around my skin gets severely dry, and my lips do too. I have a really hard time finding products for my hands that actually work, and aren’t too greasy. These hand creams are perfect for me. They’re actually for dry skin which means they’re going to work for my skin. I tried each hand cream, and they melted into my skin. The fragrance isn’t overwhelming, but it is still enough to leave you with pleasant smelling hands. I actually put one of these into my handbag, so I could have one with me at all times! I love that the products are travel size because now I’ll be able to carry these around all fall and winter long!

The Petite Shea Butter Trio comes with three shea butter balms. You can use the balms for anything you want too! I’ve been using them on my lips lately because like I said before I have a major case of chapped lips during this time of the year. However, the balms can be used on your hands, knees, elbows, or anywhere else you experience dryness. I love the different scents of all the balms too. They’re subtle like the hand creams, but still have a really nice fragrance.

Lastly was my favorite package! The Shea Butter Amour Gift is the sweet limited-edition tin box that has the hand-painted Rifle Paper Co. designs on it. The box contains L’Occitaine’s best-selling rose hand creams, and shea ultra-rich cream. Both are great products, and I am in love with the box. I love when companies use packaging that’s reusable for the consumer because now I’ll be able to use this box to hold all of products from this collaboration!

If you’re curious about L’Occitaine I’ve got a special coupon code just for you! If you head over to you can enter the coupon code RIFLEPAPER17 at checkout with any purchase, and you will receive your free gift!

These would be great gifts for Christmas, and it’s never bad to start your shopping early!

My Current Skincare Essentials


I thought I would share a few of the products that I’ve been using to take of my skin these past few months. I’m sure from what you can see I don’t use a lot of products. Now for my skincare routine I do use a moisturizer and a micellar cleansing water that aren’t pictured. I didn’t show those two products because I’m still trying to find ones that I want to keep in my every day routine. So if you have a good moisturizer recommendation drop it in the comments! I have very dry skin especially when the colder months start to roll around my forehead will get flaky. A big reason I cut out a lot of other skin products was because I felt that they were drying out my skin even more.

These five products are great for keeping your routine simple. I find too many products (with too many ingredients) can irritate the skin. I started using the Indie Lee cleanser when I received a sample of it, and now I’m in love with it. I ditched my Neutrogena Ultra Gentle cleanser for this amazing rosehip cleanser. This cleanser only has six ingredients! It gently cleanses my skin, but doesn’t dry it out. It smells lovely and I feel like my skin has been reacting well to the product. One of the other products that I want to point out was actually another sample that I received in an Ipsy bag. It’s Tarte’s maracuja oil. I was pretty hesitant to slather oil on my face, but this oil is amazing. It’s a vegan oil packed with vitamin C that’s great for helping dryness and dull skin. I use the dropper, and put a little bit in my hands. Then I rub it into my hands, and gently massage it onto my face. Every morning my skin feels rejuvenated, and I really have noticed a difference in my skins dryness and texture.

The Mario Badescu facial spray I use multiple times a day. I use it after I moisturize, I use it as a setting spray for my make-up, I use it to refresh my face throughout the day, and I use it at night before I go to bed. I honestly love this stuff. I wish I have a smaller bottle because I can’t take this on a plane! This is the kind of product you want when it feels like your skin is starting to dry out. I recommend having some of this in your cabinet because I guarantee you will end up using it every single day.

The Bunny Moon face mask from Lush is my all time favorite thing that I have as a part of my skincare routine. Lush Cosmetics always tends to have some of the best products for my skin. The employees are always so kind, and they’re very educated on their products. They have four new jelly face masks too choose from, and because I have dry skin I went with the bunny moon. This stuff smells like honey and just glides right onto your face. Immediately after washing this off of my face I noticed a difference in my skin. However, the next morning was when I really noticed a change! My skin was the softest it’s ever been, and my skin felt refreshed. I didn’t even want to put anything on my skin in the morning because it already felt so good. I recommend picking out one of these new face masks if you get the chance. Just make sure to pick the one that’s right for your skin type.

Last but certainly not least is Curology. Before Curology I had never used any sort of Acne “medication”. I started my Curology subscription five months ago, and my skin feels amazing. I was dealing with really awful hormonal breakouts that I had never dealt with before. Curology sets you up with a dermatologist that sends you a curated medication for YOUR skin. You can contact them anytime about any changes in your skin, and it really has been a great experience for me. Curology may not work for everybody, but I think if you’ve tried other things that aren’t working you should give this a shot.

That’s my current skincare routine. What skin care products are you currently using?

My Top Picks Under $100 for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here!


I personally do not have a Nordstrom credit card, so I had to wait to shop the sale. However, I still wanted to share some of my top picks from the sale this year. I will not be purchasing all of these items, but I’ll be able to slip a few of my favorites into my cart! Remember the sale ends August 6th, and everything is selling out pretty quickly. In my opinion the best things to stock up on for your fall wardrobe are basics. Stock back up on jeans, cardigans, leggings, and t-shirts all for under $50! You can also snag yourself a pretty cute pair of booties for under $100. Make sure when you’re picking your size that you’re checking the size charts because not everything fits true to size!

>Happy Shopping!

I hope you find some really great pieces for the Fall while the sale is still on! One piece of advice I will leave you with is beware of the hype. I know there are a ton of bloggers/vloggers talking about tons of items from the sale, but don’t feel the need to buy all these fairly pricey items just because someone else says it’s great! Take a good look through the sale there are some really great items 🙂
