I’m so happy to report that my first guest post ever has gone live over at The Bags Blog! I’m so proud to be a part of the site and to get my writing out into the world 🙂
Is it just me or is it getting to be that part of December that’s a little exhausting? The snow stopped being novel a week ago, the malls are packed, I’m still getting over my last cold, and Christmas music is so firmly stuck in my head that I know it’ll be there until at least Valentine’s Day. Here, five things that would make my mid-Decemeber a little brighter and get me through to the Holidays.
one: My hands get so dry in winter, this L’Occitane lotion set would be perfect to throw in my bag and the box is so pretty too! ($25)
two: I die for this Balenciaga leather tote – big enough for all my work and school supplies and sturdy enough to survive the Rochester weather ($1,256)
three: These DKNY pants would look great tucked into boots and would keep my legs warm all day, plus the higher waste would help suck in the winter weight I’ve managed to gain! ($89)
four: Michael Michael Kors gloves are the ultimate winter accessory, functional and beautiful ($53)
five: I’m a heels girl all the way (the higher the better!), but sometimes a comfortable flat can get you further quicker and there’s nothing I’d rather wear running across the campus parking lot than these DV by Dolce Vita over the knee boots ($110)
When it comes to gift giving, I think by now we can all agree that it’s the thought, not the price tag, that counts. Who doesn’t love receiving a thoughtful gift and knowing someone took the time to really think about you when purchasing it?
Here, a list of fabulous just-right gifts, all under $25. Find all the purchasing info after the page break.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m pretty much a Twitter stalker. I find new fashion, new friends, and even people to interview through my Twitter feed. If you follow me, it’s pretty much guaranteed we’ll chat at some time or another. So when these insanely cute scarves popped up on my feed this morning, I squealed at my desk (cue awkward moment with my office mates).
What little fashionista wouldn’t love her very first “stole”? If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for the child in your life (or maybe your crazy aunt?), check out these made-to-order scarves by SillyHilli over at Etsy.
