Let us talk about how fast this year has gone by. Today, while looking at my calendar I realized that there are less than 50 days until Christmas. Can you believe it? Where has the year gone? Last week Friday, I celebrated my 26th birthday and now my family and I are gearing up for the holiday season. I’ve already planned out my holiday budget and figured out who I’ll be giving gifts to this holiday season. God knows that I am a last minute shopper but hopefully this year i can start shopping for everyone’s gifts by Thanksgiving week when all the sales start rolling in. Throughout the holiday season, I wanted to share with you all my themed holiday gift guides. Today, I’ll be sharing my holiday gift guide for the one that loves cooking. I have a lot of people in my life, including myself who love to bake, cook or who love getting brand new cookware and kitchen appliances.
Williams Sonoma Copper Mini Prep Mixing Bowls / True Fabrications Viski Summit Corkscrew / KitchenAid® Metallic Series 5-Qt. Stand Mixer / All-Clad Gourmet Accessories Steamer / Medium Wood Salad Bowl / Condiment Bowls & Serving Board / Copper Finish Measuring Spoons / Thés des Gourmets Black Tea Gift Set / Oster Counter Top Oven / Pinky Up Shelby Teapot & Infuser Set
This KitchenAid Stand Mixer is on everyone’s in my family Christmas wishlists. When I use to work as a nanny in New York, the family I worked for had a KitchenAid stand mixer and omg I use to rush at the opportunity to bake so I could use it. This is the ultimate Christmas present and if it’s in your budget this holiday season, you should definitely gift yourself this stand mixer or give it to a friend or relative who you know loves to bake. I also found these cute Mini Prep Mixing Bowls from Williams-Sonoma that are a must have. As you might have noticed my gift guide has a lot of cookware and appliances that are copper and rose gold. I just love that theme for the kitchen lol. Like this gorgeous Teapot and Infuser Set or these Copper Finish Measuring Spoons. If you you’re gifting a bottle of wine this season you can pair it with this cute True Fabrications Viski Summit Corkscrew. View Post
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

I can’t believe in two weeks I’ll be vacationing in sunny Florida enjoying the Christmas festivities with my dad and the family. I’m so excited but I swear time is going by so slow lol. The fall semester is almost over and I’m so happy. This semester probably was my hardest. The work was just really hard and I was just having such a difficult time keeping up lol! Anyway thank goodness it’s almost over. Christmas shopping has been a blast. I am almost done. I have to confess I sort of got carried away and spent way to much money on gifts. I strayed so much from my original list that everyone will be getting extra gifts. Today’s Christmas gift guide is all about buying the perfect Christmas gift for your best friend. I already got my best friend the perfect gift (I can’t give it away because she reads my blog lol) and I just know she’ll love it. What are you buying your best friend this Christmas? Just in case you’re stumped you can use my gift guide as a guide on what to get him/her. Happy Holidays

The holiday season is one of the happiest time. It’s a time that we focus on the light in our lives. It’s a time that we never really think about loss. We never think about things falling apart. It’s a time of bliss. Losing someone during the holiday season has to be one of the most traumatic experiences. It literally hits you harder because you’re really not expecting it. With all the tragedy going in the world I just wanted to say a small prayer for anyone who has recently loss someone or anyone who has been personally affected the recent events going on. In the midst of pain there is always hope, joy and a promise that one day everything will be okay.

It’s officially the most wonderful time of the year. I absolutely love all things Christmas from the food to the Hallmark Channel original Christmas movie, spending time with my love ones and also shopping for the perfect Christmas present. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. This year I’ll be fortunate again to spend it with my family in Florida again so before I leave I have a lot of shopping to do. However, as usual I’m always stumped on what to buy everyone on my list. I have a silly confession, I’m someone who loves to shower people with gifts but when the time comes to actually buy the gift I never know what to buy lol. Fortunately, this year I’m prepared. I decided to create my own little gift guides and today I want to share with you all my first one. Today’s Christmas Gift Guide is catered to the people who love skin care and beauty products. I decided to categorize them just so that it would be easier to buy the gifts and also decide what I should and shouldn’t get people.
