My Holiday Gift Guide From Nordstrom

This post is in partnership with Nordstrom. All opinions are 100%my own. 
Hey Guys!
Today I'm sharing my Holiday gift-guide with you. I know there are a lot of gift guides to choose from but I have made mine super simple and included items for everyone. I've also picked all items from Nordstrom so it's easier for your shopping experience. I find it easier sometimes to just order and do all my shopping form one store, or at least as much as I can. Nordstrom also carry super quality items and they ship out fast. I also love that they have gift wrapping and messaging option on most of their items. This takes the work out of me having to get additional wrapping when the items arrive and they will also ship my purchase wrapped beautifully to my friends and family.  
So let's get into it shall we. 
First up I got this really cute PJ Salvage Print Flannel Pajamas for myself :) Yes, I got myself something and you should too, I couldn't resist it. I love a good holiday pajama and this one has been on rotation already while I am at home. It's super comfortable, warm and fits beautifully. I'm 5' 9" tall and it fit perfectly. I think it would make a really great gift for any female especially if they love PJs. It comes in about 6 other print styles too. I'm also loving this and this as options. 
Next up , I have something special for the men. Most men are super simple when it comes to holiday gifts. They also sometimes do not quite know what they want and I find that they rarely think skincare. So I am recommending this Kiehl's Men's Grab & Go Essentials Set and I know the man or men in your lives will love it. My husband often snag a few items from my skincare collection and usually fall in love with them. I find that if you give them as a gift they will use it.  I also recommend this  and this for men too. 
I picked up this Slumberkins Unicorn Stuffed Animal & 'Unicorn' Board Book for my three year old niece. I love the messaging behind it. This Slumberkins is designed to help kids learn to be true to themselves. If there's one thing I will always encourage and support my niece about to be true to herself. They have other options too such as this one (for self-esteem), this one (for relaxation), and a few others. I think these makes great gift for kids- boys and girls.   
Next up is a gift every beauty lover will love. This Skin Gym Jade Facial Trio Set is a complete winner. If I got this as a gift, I'd be so happy. The receiver doesn't necessarily have to be a beauty junkie because most times it's the opposite individual who is so grateful for such a gift. Try gifting this or this too to any of your beauty lover friends or family. They will go over very well. 
If you have an acquaintance in your life that does mean something to you but you're not sure what to gift them, I say go with a simple pair of socks. I love the fuzzy and warm feeling of these Nordstrom Butter Crew Socks. Here's a male one that I also think would be great. 
Ok, so I couldn't resist this Nordstrom at Home Wedding Cake Ornament as a gift, one for me and I got two more for two of my other friends that got married this year. It such a  great gift for newly weds who were married this year. It says 2019 on it and they can have it for years to come as a symbol of joining their union in the year dated on it. I anticipate the joy it will bring me every year I'll put mine on my Christmas tree. I'm also loving this and this as lovely keepsake ornament gifts. 

I hope you enjoyed my holiday picks from Nordstrom this year. Remember to select gift option when you shop so your gifts can be wrapped leaving you with more time to enjoy the holidays. 
Thanks for swinging by.



You Need This Folding/Drying Rack For Your Kitchen

Hi Guys,
I'm  so excited to share this home post with you especially because I will be talking about an item and I now cannot live without in my kitchen. It's this lovely Stainless Steel Folding Rack from True Shop Co. I've been using it for about three months now and let me tell you, I cannot imagine what my life was like without it before. It's such a multi-functional piece and serves so many purposes. It's sturdy and looks beautiful in my kitchen. 
It goes over the sink whether you have a one or double hole sink. You can place it horizontally or vertically depending on your sink and it's under $25. An inexpensive item that adds value to my life, yes please. 
It is multi-functional in the sense that I  use it as a drain for my dishes including pots and pans, vegetables, meats, fruits, flowers and I also use it on my counter when I have a hot pot or serving pan. It helps to break heat barrier off my countertop. My kitchen is still new to me since we completed renovation back in February so I am very careful with my quarts countertop. 
This Stainless Steel Folding Rack from True Shop is the real deal and does the job. Often I am not quite ready to load of my dishwasher or I may only have a few items so I'll simply hand-wash them and put them on the Folding/Drying Rack. It also helps that it sits over the sink I don't need to put things down in the sink to dry. Additionally, it somehow gives me extra counter space. Whenever I am cooking and washing my vegetables or fruits, I just put them on the Rack, run the pipe, and leave it there to dry. I just love this this Folding Rack

I hope you found this post useful and I promise you will LOVE this Folding/Drying Rack in your kitchen as much as I love mine. Let me know if you end up getting one and how you like it. 



GiftNow The New Way To Send Gifts

This post is sponsored by GiftNow & Shopstyle. All opinions are 100% my own. 
Hi Guys!
I'm super excited to be sharing with you this new, amazing, and exciting way to send gifts. It's called GiftNow and it is the new way to gift in the digital age. It is super simple and easy for both you and the person you are gifting. Gift-Now is a complimentary gifting service that allows you to purchase a thoughtful gift and let the recipient of that gift choose a size, color, and shipping address. This is such a relief because it rids me of having to text my friends and family with too many questions which could ruin the surprise. The other day I went to lunch with one of my girlfriends and I was wearing this Kate Spade sweater in my photo and she commented on how beautiful it was, how much she loved it, and all the questions that tell you she would want one. I instantly etched it in my mind in an ah-ha moment "I know what I'll get her as her gift this holiday".

I went home that evening, went onto Kate Spade website to the exact sweater, scroll down to the GiftNow feature in the lower right hand side of the product page, and proceeded to gift it to my amazing friend. I didn't need to do anything else but put in her email, pay for it, and send a greeting note.  I also added these earrings and necklace for her as an extra surprise. I love that Kate Spade is such a leading and innovative brand to have this feature on their website. 

With Gift-Now as an option, I feel like I'm giving a more thoughtful, fun, and engaging gift. It removes the impersonal card or the regular gift box gift-giving. It's saves so much time too and was so fun going through the process. Can you imagine the excitement of my friend on the receiving end?! It will be the same for whoever you are gifting something to. My girlfriend said she felt like she was having her own '"online shopping experience" but in the sense of getting a gift. I loved that she was pleased and had fun, too. 

Let me take you through the steps of using GiftNow on Kate Spade's website.

Step 1: Locate the item you want to purchase

Step 2: Scroll to lower right-hand section of the product and look for GiftNow option. Click on it.

Step 3: Enter the receiver's email or phone number. Write a personal greeting to send them. They will be super surprised.

Step 4: Check out and pay for the item/s. You'll get an email and your receiver will also get an email or whichever way you decide to let them know of this surprise. You can also add more than one item to your basket so feel free to mix it up and have fun gifting.
I just love this amazing gifting solution and I love that I get to share it with you in case you didn't know about it. Share this post with your friends and family. You are sending a gift not having to worry about details such as size and color, but more personal than a gift card. 
Happy Holidays to you all.



Decorate Your Home For Thanksgiving & Earn While Doing It

This post is in partnership with Walmart & Capital One. All opinions are 100% my own. 
Hello there, Loves!
Can you believe it? Thanksgiving is only tomorrow. I feel like it snuck up on me so fast and with that I decided to act fast as well. I love the holidays and everything about Fall. I was not going to let Thanksgiving come and go without decorating my home. I knew the one place I could look to was Walmart.com for a few new pieces to add the feels of the holiday in my home. What's even better is that if you are a Capital One® Walmart Rewards™ Card holder not only do you earn 5% back on Walmart.com, the Walmart App, and Grocery Pickup and Delivery, but also 2% back in store, and 1% back anywhere Mastercard is accepted. It doesn't hurt that there are no annual fees too. 

I quickly hopped on Walmart.com and selected a few pieces that I knew would make my home ready for Thanksgiving. I also love the amazing benefit of next day delivery that Walmart.com offers on so many of their products. My order came the next day and I was able to decorate my home that same evening. 
 Below is what my couch looked like BEFORE.
Here's what it looked like AFTER. 
I added this beautiful plush Better Homes & Gardens Sherpa Throw Blanket that couldn't be more perfect for Thanksgiving. It comes in about 14 other colors so you'll definitely find your style. It's so soft and cozy and perfect for snuggles after the feast. I also added these Mainstays Decorative Throw Pillows on the other end of my couch and I love how they seamlessly tie into my current decor theme. They are also the perfect colors for Thanksgiving pillow decor as you can easily mix-and-match them with other decor items for years to come. Another great thing about using the Capital One® Walmart Rewards™ Card is that you can cover your purchase after the fact by redeeming points on Walmart.com.
I also bought this Thanksgiving Silver Farm Pumpkin Decoration, it says Blessed on one side and Happy Thanksgiving in small writing on the other. I put it right in the breakfast nook in my kitchen. I loved how it came out and added some texture to the space.
Lastly, I had to decorate my dining room table because this where we will eat and gather on Thanksgiving Day. This is what my table looked like BEFORE.
This is what it looks like AFTER. Ah I loved decorating this space. I bought two sets of these beautiful Mainstays Mercury Glass Hurricane and this gorgeous Pumpkin Frame Floral Tabletop Decoration. They brought the table alive with beautiful holiday colors. I couldn't be happier.
It's safe to say, I am ready for Thanksgiving and for our guests to come. The only thing I have left to do is get my grocery to cook a few of my favorite recipes and am not worried because that will be seamless with Walmart.com Grocery Pickup. Guys, don't wait any longer, Thanksgiving is just a few days around the corner. Walmart.com is your best option and will get you and your home ready for the holidays. Don't forget to use your Capital One® Walmart Rewards™ Card and if you don't have it, apply for it asap to get all the benefits I mentioned before along with being able to redeem your rewards for statement credits, gift cards, or travel. There are so many amazing benefits plus Walmart has almost everything to cover our needs. 

Happy Thanksgiving
