Bath and Body Works Cream Body Wash

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Growing up I was almost always staying at my friend Brittney's house on Fridays after cheering at football games and I remember her shower being stocked with a new B&BW shower gel every time. At my house we usually had something simple like Suave so I would be so excited to try the new fragrances she had. I think I have however, gotten B&BW works gift sets every Christmas for as long as I can remember (what girl hasn't honestly) and the sets would include a lotion, body mist, and shower gel. If I had my say, I would bring back the Art's Stuff collection from the 90s. Glitter shower gel, the body mist with the little squishy circles in it, foaming body wash, ROLL ON BODY glitter. And let's not forget Cucumber Melon! Who remembers these?? I even had my membership card, which I guarantee is somewhere at my mom's house still (I have hoarding issues) Give me all the roll on glitter back! Now days I still love and use B&BW products, but their candles are by far my absolute favorite! However, I am so excited for two new releases. Whipped Shimmer Body Mousse and Creamy Body Wash.

The Whipped Body Mousse brings that nostalgic feeling from the old foam body wash. I tried a sample in the store and it feels amazing, but have not purchased it yet. I did purchase the Creamy Body wash in the fragrance Fresh Sparkling Snow. I used it last night and I love it so far! It's a creamy wash with a great lather and left my skin feeling soft and clean. And I LOVE the Fresh Sparkling Snow scent so I may have to try it in other products. Other holiday scents I found I love are Champagne Toast, Sparkling Wood (which for some reason is not online), Mahogany Teakwood, Flannel, and Marshmallow Fireside. For winter I prefer woodsy and strong scents over the super sweet vanillas. I would definitely recommend these new products if you are looking for stocking stuffers or a gift for a coworker. :) I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thank you for taking the time to read.

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you caught my Holiday Gift Guide For Him post yesterday! Shopping for my fellow females comes much more naturally to me, so this guide will be a little more detailed!

For The Fashionista:

It's hard to give a specific pick on fashion. Everyone has such different style. My reccomendations would be to ask what stores they love and get them one or two gift cards! Nordstrom, Victoria's Secret, Dillards, or maybe their favorite boutique! Other creative ideas would be to sign them up for a Stich Fix or Rocksbox subscription. Here are some other ideas!
Fleece Pullover  (I love the burgandy!)
Sam Edelman Boots - I have these in Whiskey and now I want the black! Go up a full size in these.
Steve Madden Edit Booties - The blush velvet is everything.
Rebecca Minkoff Tech Wristlet
Faux Fur White Vest - you can find these tons of places for a reasonable price and in multiple colors

Marble and Copper Cheese Knives
Copper Rim Barware Collection
Wine Decanter and Glasses Set

For The Travel Bug:

Barrington Gift's Captains Bag (personalized)

Jon Hart Overnighter

Just Because:

Fujifilm Instax Wide Polaroid 
Fujifilm Instax Mini Polaroid
Faux Fur Blanket
Fleece Blankets
Cute Slippers 
A Fluffy Bathrobe - I received a robe from Aegean Apparel one year for Christmas and I actually shared it in an older blog post because I love it so much! I wear it every morning when I get ready or when I just want to throw on something cozy. I wash it every week because my makeup gets on it and it has not worn out at all! This is such a useful gift.

Holiday Gift Guide For Him

Monday, November 14, 2016

I love to start Christmas shopping early, not only to get everything out of the way so that I don't stress the days before, but also to lessen the financial blow. Gifting to the women in my life has always been easy. I know their interests and I know if I would love something, they probably will too! However, gifting to the men in my life is never quite as easy! Will they think this is cool too or silly? Is this something they need or would want? What about the color? I decided to make a gift guide for him to hopefully help you brainstorm for any type of man in your life. Boyfriend, husband, dad, brother, or grandparent, I tried to find ideas for all walks of life.

For The Traveler:

I am a big fan of Jon Hart luggage. It is pricier, but so sturdy and long lasting. It makes a great gift as most people would not spend that amount on themselves. There are so many different types and size pieces for anything you could want. Everything comes in several colors and  you can personalize each piece with their name or initials. I have a duffel, backpack, and makeup case that I received as Christmas gifts and they have been the most useful gifts! Jon Hart makes great gift options for both men and women.
Jon Hart Dopp Kit 
Jon Hart Two-Suiter Garment Bag
Jon Hart Boot Bag
Jon Hart Medium Square Duffel


For The Foodie:

Another great idea: a wine club subscription! 
Stuffed Hamburger Press
Whiskey Rocks
Spiegelau Beer Tasting Set
Stainless-Steel Sliding Skewers
A Wok


For The Outdoorsman:

Yeti Hopper 20
Yeti Camo Cooler Cushion
Jon Hart Rifle Cover
Jon Hart Bird Bag

For The Sports Lover:

Tickets to a game
Gear For His Favorite Team
A Dipped Yeti of His Favorite Team
Golf course gift card
Nike Cart Bag
Personalized Golf Balls

For The Professional:

Daniel Wellington Leather Watch
Barrington Gift's Money Clip
Mini Hand Steamer
Button ups or accessories
Ties and Pocket Squares

I hope that some of these ideas help you spoil your favorite men! A Gift Guide for Her is soon to come so check back in a couple days or just subscribe in the sidebar and you will get an email of every new post!
