Last Minute Gift Ideas Under $50

Hello ladies and happy Monday! 

Anyone else feel like they're running around like a chicken with their head chopped off!?!?  I mean, if I'm being honest, that's pretty much how I always feel...ha!  But with only eight days left until Christmas, the struggle is real! 

I am literally still in my pajamas ordering last minute gifts, class party supplies, and finishing up all of our "Santas gifts" for the kids.  That being said, I thought I would show you all a few things that I ran across that I think would make awesome last minute gift ideas for almost anyone you still have left on your list.  And best part, everything I'm including can be ordered and delivered to your doorstep in the next two days! 

This is such a pretty utensil set, and judging from the perfect five star review, the quality must be pretty amazing!  And you can't beat the under $40 price tag for a six piece set including the marble utensil holder.

This brand has quickly become one of my favorite brands ever!  I swear, everything I've ever ordered not only feels amazing, but the quality is outstanding!  And I don't know of any women that wouldn't want a good cozy cardigan, especially one that can be worn for dressing up or just lounging around.  

Prettiest candle ever, and added bonus, it's 20% off right now.  I've actually smelled this scent in the store before and it smells divine. 
I've heard nothing but great things about this brand, and what guy couldn't use a nice 'after' shaving set. 

I know this one is not very original, but I also know a lot of men grill and could probably use new grill utensils.  Plus, you can't beat the $29 price tag for this quality stainless steel set. 

We have four of these copper mugs and we love to make fun drinks while using them.  This would be so awesome to give someone with this cocktail mixer kit!

Y'all know that I'm a HUGE fan of essentials oils, and this is the brand that I use and LOVE!  This is such a great starter pack and comes with all of my favorite oils.  Also, this $22 diffuser would be great to add along with it.  It's the diffuser that I now have four of, and use everyday and night in my office and all of our bedrooms. 

These sheets are SO comfy and would make the perfect gift for almost anyone!  Plus, they wash and dry so well. 

Last, but not least, when in doubt...slippers are always a good idea!  This is another brand that I swear by, and Todd has the mens version of these here and loves them.  The mens slippers are also currently half off!!

Delicious Holiday Appetizers + A Few Recent Looks

Hello friends and happy hump day!! 

I am sorry that I have been MIA around here this week.  As I'm sure most of you all know, the holidays are pretty crazy!  Plus, I've been trying to take a step back and focus more on my family, and while the holidays can definitely be overwhelming, there is so much joy and happiness in it as well, especially seeing it through your children's eyes. 

This image popped up on my Facebook and I couldn't believe this was almost six years ago!

And with the holidays also comes all the holiday parties!!  Todd and I have our white elephant supper club party this Friday and I am so excited!  I am planning on making a big salad of some sort along with an appetizer.  And since a lot of you guys probably have parties to attend as well, I thought I would share a few delicious appetizers that would be great for holiday parties.  

And since I've been MIA on here, I also wanted to share a few of my recent outfits since I know shopping my blog is often much easier than Instagram these days! 

Tee runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing a small.  The skirt also runs tts and I'm wearing that in a small as well. 

Oversized Lightweight Sweater // Gold Hoops (on major sale) //

Leggings and puffer jacket both run tts and I'm wearing a small in both.

Amazon Fashion Hunt Hits And Misses

Good morning friends and happy Thursday!! 

I am coming at ya with a big ol round of Amazon hit and misses this morning!  I didn't realize it had been so long since I shared one of these with you guys.  I've shared some of the stuff on my Instastories, but I wanted to make sure I also shared it here as well so it would all be in one place and hopefully easier for you guys to find it. 

I had lots, and I mean lots of hits this month with only one miss.  Now that I've been ordering fashion from Amazon on the regular, I feel like I know the brands that I really love (like Daily Ritual, Mae, CRZ Yoga, and Core10), I can weed out the ones that aren't that great.  Some of the random brands still have some really cute stuff, it's just somewhat of a crapshoot on whether or not it will look good and how good the quality may be. 

I also found a lot of really great and super affordable dresses this month, and a lot of them would be perfect for upcoming holiday parties you ladies may have, so I figured I would start with those first! 

While this one isn't really super dressy, I think this two piece sweater set could still be worn to a more casual holiday party.  I am thinking ornament exchange, dirty Santa, or a casual drop-in party. 

Edited Hit and Misses 12/12 
Okay y'all this tunic sweater in my book was a miss, it was just too thin and a little too snug in all the wrong areas. But these high-waist stretch leggings are amazing, and a total win!! 

For sizing reference leggings run tts and I am wearing them in a small . 

Sweater runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing a small. Jeggings also run tts, and I am wearing them in a size small short.

The set runs small so make sure you go up at least one size.  For reference, I'm wearing a medium.
