‘Tis the season, to start gift shopping. I was browsing over at West Elm today, and came across so many great gifts. Ones that would be so fun to give, and that I would love to receive! How great are the book ends?! Only $19, and the pouches, you can get those monogrammed. All gifts under $25!

give the gift of DIY

I had a set of wooden kitchen utensils lying around and decided to give them a little makeover, a super simple DIY, and one that turned very boring kitchen utensils into something more exciting to use. With the holidays upon us, I love the idea of giving a set of these with a fun platter or set of kitchen towels. The whole project only took about 20 minutes and I just added more white to the paint mix to create the ombre effect.

for the fashionista

I can’t help but start gathering ideas for Christmas gifts, and one of my favorites to give {and receive} has to be books. I love a good coffee table book and it’s a great gift for the person who has everything. These fashion focused books are perfect for the fashionista in your life. Not to mention, they are all on Gilt, and the prices happen to be just right.

can’t forget color

As soon as the cooler weather rolls in, it seems everyone {including myself}, reaches for dark, neutrals and subdued clothing. This year I am going to strive to bring a little color into my winter wardrobe. So often I just pile on all black and head out the door, or throw on neutrals and call it a day. I am challenging myself {and you} to not forget the color this winter season. add color

DIY to try

I have been eyeing tassel necklaces for quite some time now {especially this one}, and decided to try my hand at making a few of my own. I have to say I think they came out pretty well, not to mention, this was a pretty simple DIY.  Just a few beads, a few tassels {Hobby Lobby has a great selection} and some cord to string it on, and that’s it!

camo, not just for hunting

Being from South Louisiana, when I first started noticing camo on the racks at my favorite retailers I felt very hesitant to make a purchase {I see camo worn for hunting purposes way to often down here}. One of my girlfriends recently wore it perfectly and since then I can’t get my mind off of the idea. Once the winter months are upon us, I look forward to a little camo and lots of layers. The love the style of the three sweaters below, and perfect for every price range.
