Christmas Gift Guide: Gifts For Him

If you’re a last-minute shopper like me, you’re going to be running to the stores and shopping online this week to make sure you get those last-minute Christmas gifts. I always wait until the last-minute because I’m either extremely busy during the month of December or I can’t think of the perfect gift to get my friends & family. Christmas creeped up on me this year. I can’t believe that next Sunday is Christmas and I’ve only gotten gifts for my niece, nephew, mom and sister. I still have so many gifts to get and so little time. Thank God for gift guides. Honestly, they are life savers. Today, I decided to create a gift guide for the guys in our lives.  I always have the hardest time trying to figure out what to get the guys in my life, because they are all so laid back. They aren’t fussy and they love and appreciate everything you give them. They literally have everything, so when I shop for them I’m always asking myself what can I get them that they’ll actually use everyday or once in a while?  When I’m shopping for my friends & family I love getting them quality gifts they can use. I don’t want to waste my money and I want to get the best deals out there. My Christmas gift guide below features a variety of gift ideas you can choose from or just get an idea of the direction you might want to go when shopping for that guy in your life. Also, as an added bonus I have 20% off coupon (TJHoliday) you can use when purchasing any of the Tommy John clothing and underwear from my gift guide or on the Tommy John website www.tommyjohn.com

5 Ways to Save Money When You’re On a Budget

Saving money can be really hard. However, it is one of those goals that are attainable if you exercise self-discipline. Whatever you decide to save money for, you should first have a plan. This plan should include both your short and long-term saving goals. It should also include the amount of money you hope to save, your budget and anything else related to your goal of saving money. Saving money can be frustrating. My advice to you is don’t get discouraged while you’re trying to save money. A lot of times you might not get to save the desired amount you might want each month but you should never give up. I can tell you from experience that when I was trying to save money earlier this year a lot of times, I had to dip into my savings for a car emergency or to pay a bill. Back in April, I didn’t even put money into my savings account because I had to get new tires. It happens but the most important thing I did was never giving up.Saving Money View Post

Try This: Yummy Tilapia Mango Salad & A Ranch Avocado Dip

Tilapia Mango Salsa Salad with a Limey Ranch Avocado DipHey guys, guess what I have a brand new recipe for you. I swear, lately, my blog has been slowly transitioning into a food blog because I’ve been sharing so many yummy recipes. I was recently contacted by GoAvo to work with them on a collaboration, where I had to create a dish using one of GoAvo’s avocado spreads. At first I was so nervous about this collaboration because honestly, I’m not a chef and when I cook I literally throw ingredients together and somehow it manages to taste good. Also, I have to confess that some days I just hate cooking and the thought of being in the kitchen just makes me want to scream lol. But after thinking it over I snatched my non-existent weave, (LOL) gave myself a little pep talk and I realized that this would be a fun, creative and yummy experience.  So please enjoy my tilapia mango salsa salad with a ranch avocado dip and chips on the side. Happy Eating and I hope you love this dish as much as I do. View Post
