Happy Thanksgiving friends! I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing day with loved ones. I’ve rounded up my favorite things from 2015 to help with Christmas gift giving! Several of these are things I’ve mentioned on my blog before, but there are also a few new things I haven’t shared yet. These are my absolute favorite things and what I’ll be giving friends and family for gifts this year. YEA for favorites!
REVERSIBLE FAUX LEATHER TOTE – You all know I’ve loved this bag. Great price, looks expensive even though it isn’t, and you can reverse it for a new look. I use it almost every day!
Love that it comes in so many different color combos!
LEIGHTON STRIPED BAG – Two bags have my heart and this is the other one. Absolute perfect size for tossing all sorts of odds and ends I need for my kids every day. Plus it’s adorable! I get compliments every single time I take this anywhere. (It’s on sale right now btw!) Of course my GRAY HIGH GLOSS HUNTERS are also a favorite and so are the TALL KNIT CUFF SOCKS. So comfy on a cold rainy day. Hoping we have more of those in our future.
JOHNSON PURSE – I haven’t shared my new favorite purse yet and I’m so excited about it! Isn’t it adorable!? It looks so much more expensive than it is! I’ve had this for a few months and absolutely love it. A fun gift for your mom, sister, friend.. or maybe a little early Christmas gift to yourself? :)
I had my mom snap this picture yesterday of me quick just to show you the size of this purse. I love that tassel! So cute.
UGG CLAUDINE TALL BOOTS – My Ugg boots are also a favorite. On sale right now! Aside from the look I just love how comfy they are. Heeled boots that feel like slippers.
LAUREL PEEP TOE BOOTIE – Another favorite pair of shoes!
POPCORN BOWLS – This was a favorite gift from last year. I gave them to my girls with some DVD’s and we use them all the time.
PJ SALVAGE PAJAMAS – My favorite new pj’s! PJ salvage pj’s are so amazingly soft. I never want to take them off! A little more than I usually spend on pj’s but if you try them on you’ll see why! Every girl needs a pair.
VOLCANO CAPRI BLUE CANDLE and KRUMPETS ROOM SPRAYS – A couple of favorite scents. Absolutely love this candle and the room sprays make your house smell so good! The cinnamon (on the right) is my favorite!
VINTAGE WOOD PADDLE CUTTING BOARDS – Love them for decor and every day use! They area also great for entertaining. I usually spread cheese and crackers out on them.
‘RAYNE’ STONE TASSLE PENDANT NECKLACE – Love this necklace. A great gift! Giving a couple of these away this year.
Wearing it with this dress from Banana Republic with my cute sister and sister-in-law.
KENDRA SCOTT EARRINGS – Kendra Scott earrings are also a favorite of mine. LOVE this pair.
TANNER SMALL BAR PENDANT NECKLACE – This necklace has become my every day favorite. It looks good so good with everything! Simple and understated and really feminine. It just adds a little something to most outfits.
GEO BANGLES – Love these bracelets. I picked up a few for friends last week!
QUILTED FIELD VEST – One of my favorite things to wear! I find myself reaching for it so often. On sale at Banana right now!
MIXED MEDIA JACKET – Another every day go to!
BP SOCKS – Socks from Banana are my favorite. Perfect for boots and aren’t these patterns adorable!?
HEAD SWEATS VISOR, POWER BEATS HEADPHONES, and HIP SISTER – my go to workout gear! Love all three of these items for running or walking with friends.
21 DAY FIX – Have you all heard of this eating/exercise plan? I could write a whole post about this (and maybe will at some point!) but for now I’ll just say that I have a friend who had done this and loved it so I thought I’d give it a try. I absolutely LOVED it too! If you follow the eating plan and do the workout DVD’s you really will lose weight. As far as maintaining, I love this program because it taught me a lot about portion control and how many proteins, carbs, fruits and veggies I should be eating in a day so even if I don’t follow it to the letter, I still eat better than I did before. Plus I LOVE the workouts! Love them. Only 30 minutes a day and they work everything. Like I said, I could go into so much more detail. For now I’ll just say it was one of my favorite things this year! A great gift if you are setting a goal to be healthier in 2016 (who isn’t right!?). :)
ELTA MD TINTED FACIAL SUNSCREEN – We all know the best thing we can do for our skin is to wear sunscreen everyday, but I never liked to wear sunscreen under my make-up because of the smell – plus it was always so shiny or greasy. My neighbor (a facial plastic surgeon so when he talks I listen – ha!) told me about this facial sunscreen and I have been hooked ever since! It goes on so smooth and you don’t even feel it’s on your face. Plus it’s lightly tinted so it adds a bit of color to your face (just a bit!). I love that because when I’m exercising outside (wearing no make-up) I just put a little on and my face doesn’t look quite so pale. Kind of like a touch of foundation. I love this so much I bought several for gifts and will most likely take it to my friend’s annual favorite things party. YEA! It’s a fun favorite!
I’m off to hang with my family, eat more turkey and read about more favorite things in two of my favorite magazines! Love this time of year. I’m so grateful for all of your friendship and support this year. Making so many connections with all of you is the reason blogging is a favorite thing in my life. Wishing you all love and happiness this holiday season!
