Holiday Gift Guide for Her!

 

Happy Cyber Monday everyone 🙂 Today I am sharing my gift guide for HER! A few of these items I already own and a couple are definitely on my wish list! I always like to get the bulk of my shopping finished early because there are undoubtedly a few last-minute things I always am rushing around for right before Christmas! I am heading to New York at the end of this week (SO EXCITED!) and I am planning on getting a few special gifts there as well. I hope you all have a wonderful week and happy shopping!

Trend I am Loving: Color Block!

One of my favourite trends right now (besides leopard!) is colour block everything.  Colour blocking is essentially when you pair two or more contrasting, yet complementary colours together.  This trend has been around for a while, but this year it seems to be in abundance everywhere and available in all sorts of clothing and accessories.

 

There are so many adorable sweaters, dresses, accessories and skirts.  I am trying not to go overboard! I actually recently returned a super cute colour block cardigan that I recently purchased because when I unpacked my winter clothes I realized that I had bought an almost dental one at the end of last season… Ooops 😉 LOL!  I have rounded up a ton of more affordable and adorable colour block pieces if it is a style you are loving as well.

One. Beige/Pink Sweater // Two. Shoulder Bag // Three. V Knit Sweater // Four. Pom Pom Beanie // Five. Tassel Detail Mules // Six. Navy/ Grey/ Black Cardigan // Seven. Bodycon Maxi Dress // Eight.

Ingredients:
  • Box of Rice Krispie squares (or you can be more ambitious then me and make your own… LOL!)
  • Fruit Roll Ups
  • Edible Candy Eyes

Directions:

Slice fruit roll ups into 1 cm strips

Wrap fruit roll up slices around Rice Krispie squares like mummy bandages

Stick 2 candy eyes at the top onto your squares

I placed mine into individual bags to give at my kids daycare and schools. Ta da! Super easy and adorable treat for them to give to their friends 🙂

The Cutest Leopard Cardigans!

As you may or may not have noticed, leopard is EVERYWHERE this Fall! It makes me giggle when I hear say someone say that they are so excited that animal print is back in style this year.  I guess I never got the memo that it wasn’t always “in”… LOL! I have always loved leopard and consider it to be one of my neutrals! I recently picked up a gorgeous leopard cardigan and am almost embarrassed of how often I have been wearing it!
