The Ultimate Women’s Gift Guide!

Hey guys!

It’s officially the season of giving, so I’ve rounded up the best gifts for any women in your life! I’ve spent a lot of time hand picking each item for this guide because I wanted to make sure these were fool proof ideas for anyone. So I’ve broken the post up into three different categories – The Beauty Lover – The Lux Girl – The Home Body. If you are buying for someone who doesn’t fall into one of those categories thats okay, there are still some great gifting options within the post that anyone would love! Also, I turned on the snow feature on my blog to get you in that Christmasy mood no matter where you are in the world ūüôā We have been so lucky this week because it’s been snowing like crazy here, so I wanted to share the magic with all of you guys too!

Beauty Lover

The Beauty Lover 

VS Cosmetics Cases:¬†If you know a beauty lover, then you know she’s got quite the collection of makeup. What’s the perfect addition to a collection of makeup? A beautiful makeup case to keep it organized and stylish! I found these pretty pink makeup cases at Victorias Secret and fell in love.¬†The Vanity Case is perfect for holding her day-to-day makeup, and the Jetsetter Travel Case is great for organizing the rest of her collection! The travel case has three small bags inside too, which are great to fill with lipsticks and to throw in her purse.

Tarte Brush Set:¬†If she wears makeup then she definitely uses makeup brushes and the¬†great thing about gifting a brush set is that – A girl can literally never have too many brushes! Plus brushes can be very expensive, so if you give a girl a good set of quality brushes, she’s going to appreciate it! *Unfortunately the set shown is sold out online so I’ll link another good set here.

Fresh – Sugar Lip Beauty Box:¬†These are the best lip balms ever!! They go on so smooth and will keep her lips hydrated for hours, and the best part is that this set comes with every colour in the collection(including the original clear version). A tinted lip balm is great to brighten up her lips while still looking natural, and now she’s got a colour for any occasion!

Lux Girl

The Lux Girl

Daniel Wellington:¬†c/o¬†For the fashionable girl who has everything, it can be hard to find the perfect gift that you know she’s going to love. Which is why I did all the work for you in finding two great gift options that I know she’s going to swoon over. A Daniel Wellington gift set featuring the Classic Petite Melrose Watch with the matching rose gold cuff! You can get this watch with a white face too which keeps it nice and bright for the women who keep their style very feminine.

iDeal Of Sweden:¬†c/o¬†The best Phone Case and Tech Wallet combo on the market! If she keeps her phone on her at all times then these products would make the perfect gift. Each item is magnetic and can stick together and pull apart with total ease. So if her phone’s in the wallet and she has to make a call, she doesn’t have to put the entire wallet up to her ear, she can just lift the phone off, and still have the protection of the hard shell case. This product is a game changer, and perfect for a women on the go! OH and don’t worry, the magnets won’t hurt her phone!

Home Body

The Home Body

Faux Fur Blanket: Faux Fur is huge right now… especially in home decor, so this blanket would make the perfect gift for any women in your life! Perfect for on her bed, or on the couch, it will give any room a little touch of glam all the while still being practical.

Reading Socks:¬†If she loves being extra cozy in the winter and is big on wearing slippers or thick socks, these are the best of both worlds! Super warm like a slipper but convent to lay around in, like a sock! These come in a ton of different colours and patterns too, so they’ll fit anyones style.

Voluspa Candle: A girl can never have too many candles and this brand is the best because their packaging is sooo pretty it compliments any decor. But more importantly they smell amazing and their large jar candles burn for 100 hours!

Leggings: I think these speak for themselves…every women loves a good legging and especially one thats great quality at a very¬†reasonable price! Once you buy her one, she will be asking you for a new pair every year because she’ll love them so much.

Gem Stone Earrings: Okay, these earring are stunning and I can garuntee you she¬†won’t have anything else quite like this in her jewerly collection! These earrings are a multifaceted raw cut gem stone on a stainless steel stud. If your mom/sister/girlfriend loves natural elements, these earrings would be perfect for her. They come in a ton of different stones too *Amethyst(purple) and Rose Quarts(light pink) are the ones shown above!

I hope this post can help check some ladies off your Christmas list just in time for the Holidays! It feels like Christmas came so fast this year it’s crazy.

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! <3

 

 

 

 

 

Fade-Resistant Black Denim Ft. Mott & Bow!

Sweater / c/o Jeans / Similar boots / Bag / Necklaces here, here and here /

Happy Friday,

I hope everyone had a good week! We had our first dusting of snow a couple days ago, so I got a little excited and busted out all my Christmas decorations. I don’t know what it is but I feel like I wait all year for Fall, and then as soon as Halloween’s over I’m already onto Christmas! I always try to stop myself from getting too excited about Christmas before December but it never works lol!

Todays outfit is a cozy one! I picked up this sweater a couple weeks ago because I loved the mauve colour but once I tried it on I fell in love with how slouchy and soft it is. I paired it with my new Mott & Bow ‘Bond’ jeans which are a new favourite in my wardrobe! They are a pitch black, high-waisted jean that won’t fade!! I always have an issue when buying black jeans, once I put them through the wash a few times they end up almost greyish from all the fading, so I’m happy I finally found a pair that will hold their colour.

Does anyone have any exciting plans this weekend? I think I might shoot my first VLOG! I’ve been thinking about making YouTube videos for a while now, and I think I’ve finally convinced myself to just do it!

 

 

 

Getting Cozy In Blue Mountain!

Sweater / Similar Jacket / C/O Necklace / Earrings / Jeans / Similar Shoes /

Hey guys!

As I mentioned in last weeks post, Peter and I went to Blue Mountain on the weekend for their Apple Harvest Festival. We got there on Friday night before the festival started and walked around the village, took some outfit pictures and then headed back to our hotel before dinner. It was so nice to spend a night up north with all the colourful leaves, we don’t normally do trips in the fall but now I feel like it needs to become a tradition! The Harvest Festival started Saturday but it was raining all day so we watched a few shows and demonstrations and then headed back home for Thanksgiving. I wore this sweater when we were exploring on Friday and it was perfect, the weather was cool so it kept me nice and warm! It is a little scratchy though so if you have super sensitive skin, this one might not be for you. I found a look-a-like thats soft and linked it in the widget below.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!

Light & Bright Outfit For Fall!

Top / Cardigan (30% off!)/ Jeans / Similar Booties here and here / Bag / Necklace / Earrings /

Good morning guys,

I hope everyone’s been having a great week so far! The weather has really cooled off here which feels so good, I had to bust out my big blanket scarves a few mornings this week, which I love! I’ve also been living in this long grey cardigan since I got it in the mail a few weeks ago, the colour goes with everything and I love the length. Cozy cardigans are a staple in my fall and winter wardrobe and Old Navy has some really good ones right now, and they’re all 30% off this week!

On another note, this weekend is Canada’s Thanksgiving long weekend and I’ve got some fun things planned. Peter and I are headed to Blue Mountain(my favourite place!) for their Apple Harvest Festival for a couple days – to hike, try different ciders,¬†take blog pictures, and just do fun fall activities. Then we’re coming home just in time to celebrate Thanksgiving on Sunday and Monday with each of our families. Thanksgiving has always been my favourite holiday since it falls in my favourite month of the year(my birthday month) October, so I can hardly wait!

Do you guys have any fun plans this weekend? Let me know in the comments! Oh, and follow along on my Instagram stories to see what we get up to at the Harvest Festival (@melissaashburn) ūüôā
