I’m all about the mug life.  It’s the perfect incognito beverage vessel.  Is it wine?  Or is it coffee?  You’ll never really know what I’m sippin on.

And these pretty initial mugs from Anthro are perfect for your instagram game too…Ha!

I’m sharing 3 fun + easy + inexpensive ways to gift a mug to your homegirl + kids teachers + hostess + hairdresser or anyone really.

If you keep scrolling, I’ve also added some of my top mug picks too.  Mugs are so damn cute these days, it was hard to just pick a couple so I shared a shit-ton.

{easter basket goodies}

All the kids want is the CHOCOLATE!!  And let’s be real….all us Mama’s want our kids to fall asleep so we can steal all their Reese’s Eggs.  Am I right?  I like to call it “quality control.”  I can’t buy them for myself, because #noselfcontrol obvi.  So, I buy them for Bay.  Then eat them. Ha.  Makes total sense to me!

Ever since I was a kid, my parents always filled our baskets with a new swim suit + salt water sandals…and all the candy.

I totally copycat my Mom and do the same for Bay each year.  I always try to throw in the realistic things that I will need to buy anyway.  And with summer right around the corner, the summery basket was always the ticket.

Except this year.  Bay already has new suits + flip-flops + beach towels + googles….we had to stock up earlier for her Hawaii trip.

This year the Easter Bunny is bringing her museum ticket.

Remember my Adventure + Experiences gift idea.  We’re still rollin with it.

Still jazzing up the tickets with some fun goodies that I know she’ll love too.  #reeseseggs

{friday 5}

source.gif

Happy Friday!  I know it’s been a killer of a week.  Last minute shopping + gift wrapping + tying up loose ends at work.  But, we made it!  It’s Friday.  I have a bottle of chardonnay in the fridge waiting for my arrival.  And I cannot wait to enjoy the next 11 days work free!  And guess what peeps?  I’ve pre-blogged so you will still be getting emails everyday next week to your inbox while I’m still snoozing in bed.  And tomorrow – the last Elf on the Damn Shelf – Final days.  Have you planned out the departure of your Elf?  Ha.  Kidding.  Of course you have, probably since December 2nd.

I’ve got 5 things on my mind…..

 

ONE – Stocking Stuffers // This year, the first year EVER, I nailed it on the stocking.  I normally hit up Target about this time and walk up and down the isles looking for random shit to fill the stocking up.  Not this year.  I’ve been gathering little goodies as Bay mentioned she liked things.  Most things, I even got on sale.  Which is a huge plus.  Stocking stuffers can get expensive AF.  So if you’re in need of some ideas…check out what I grabbed below.  I’ve linked every little item I’m stuffing the stocking with this year.  And Santa gets all the damn credit…lol!

Chocolates // Slippers // Honey // Ruffle Top // Emoji Coin Purse // Pom-Pom Hair tie // Mary’s Angel Ornament // Velvet Hair Bow // 2018 Planner // Amazon Echo Dot // Hand Sanitzer Kit

TWO – Teacher Gifts // I had messages asking for this sooner, and I straight up dropped the ball.  I meant to share this last week and forgot.  This would make for a great hostess gift + homie gift + neighbor gift.  Really anyone, if you ask me.  I know I’d be pumped with Seka Hills products + spiced nuts 🙂  Anyway, this is what Bay took her teachers yesterday.  I’ve already got a request for more of the spiced nuts once school starts back up after the new year.

Seka Hills Olive Oil // Balsamic Vinegar

THREE – The Royals // Raise you’re hand if you’re as obsessed with the Prince Harry + Meghan Markle as I am?  Their engagement photos are everything.  I mean, that dress!  I die!  What a lucky bitch!

{gift guide for her}

IMG_5267.jpg
Another day, another gift guide.  Really I just feel like shit and I don’t feel like typing a recipe.  Or taking a #ootd.  Or pretending that I’m all peppy and shit.  So, another gift guide it is.
Once again, ALL tried + true or on my actual wish list for the holidays.
There’s something for the ladies that like to cook.  Lovers of pretty things.  And cute stuff to wear.
Those jams + robe are calling my name right about now.

IMG_4985

Today I’ve rounded up some of my tried + true favorite things.  Everything on this list would make for a great bff + hostess with the most + teacher gift.  I’m always on the hunt for the perfect little something for the chicks in my life.  You know, the ones that you want to put some extra thought into.  The ones that a Starbucks card or bottle of wine just wont cut it.  Don’t get me wrong, I like all those things!  Ha. 

There’s something for the lady who loves to entertain.

The friend that loves to cook.

Or the girl who just loves pretty things.

Oh yeah, and did I mention they are all under $25?  Yep.  Love my peeps, but I’m also on a budget.

{christmas jams}

fullsizerender-6
Holly, Bailey’s Elf On the Dam Shelf arrives with Christmas Jams each year.  Normally December 1st.  If you read Friday 5 then you know that Old Navy screwed that all up for me this year…lol.  So Holly arrived on December 2nd.  Which, to my surprise, Bailey didn’t even notice.
I went for the less traditional Christmas Jams this year.  When I saw this metallic gold heart set I knew it was happening.  Super cute and Bay loves them.
She even mentioned that Holly has super cute taste and always picks out the best jams.  As if I have awful taste and pick out the worst…lol!  They were a hit!
In case you’re still in need of a festive pair of pj’s for Christmas morning…I’ve rounded up some cute options.  Target + Old Navy + Gap + J.Crew.  My go-to stores for the best kids stuff.

E A S T E R // Easter basket suffer edition
Can you believe that Easter is only 18 days away?  Me either.  This month is flying by and I realized that I still have my St. Patrick’s Day decor up.  Time to get my Easter goodies bought and shipped before it’s too late.  I try to come up with basket stuffer items each year that I will need to buy anyway.  Swimming goggles + beach towel + rubber flip flops, etc.  Then I search for the cutest options and snag them before they are gone.
Here’s a few of my favorite things for Easter 2016.
