BFF Behavior: The Ultimate Gift Guide

She’s the friend that will always look on the bright side of things. That drunk text you made, the major work slip-up… no big deal. She will always lift you up whenever you’re feeling down and insecure.  She is a good girl but deserves not just a good, but a great gift.

She’s the friend that can tell when you’re not being yourself. She’s older, wiser, and always knows the right thing to do…whether you like hearing it or not. She deserves something sophisticated with a little sparkle.

She’s the instafamous friend who has close to 10k followers but knows none of them are true friends and she’s always been your #1 fan. She’s supported your dreams no matter how big they are. You guys communicate through emojis and somehow it all makes sense. She needs something she’s really gonna “like”.

She edgy, a trendsetter, a badass bitch. She is the friend that helps you let your hair down and just have fun. She inspires you to be yourself and not care what others think. She’s getting a thoughtful trendy present this year!

Flashy Flash Drives

It’s Cinco De Mayo and right now you probably have only two things on your mind: tequila and guacamole. If you’re like me, I’m sure you can’t wait till the clock hits 5 and you can prance out the door with your invisible sombrero on. Unfortunately, we’re all still here…working and waiting.Wino at work

Sometimes at the end of the day when I have lost that caffeine kick that has sustained me throughout the afternoon, I might just lose my train of thought. I am sure we’ve all had a delirious moment when we forget to save our work. Now, I ALWAYS make sure I save everything; how could I forget when I am using a fancy USB.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s day is just around the corner! But before you go shopping for the ladies in your family remember that not all mother’s should be treated equal. Sure, ALL women love getting flowers and breakfast in bed is the best wake-up call (don’t forget the coffee), but every mom has their “thing.”

My mom’s obsession has always been skin care, not like she ever needed it of course, but she owns the best anti-aging creams, gels, serums…you name it and you bet I’m secretly using it too. NeriumAD Age-Defying treatment is currently my mom’s favorite “miracle” cream. Many skin care products have made my mom break out but this anti-aging duo was seriously life changing. If your mom is beauty-conscious and would like to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines I highly recommend NeriumAD, I know my mom would love a refill!

My Grandma is so chic with her polka-dotted scarf, cuffs and bangles; she is a true accessories lover! The Michael Kors Camila Cat-Eyed Sunglasses are just right for fashion-forward moms. Cat-eyed sunnies are trending for summer; however the shape of these Michael Kors lenses isn’t overly dramatic where your mom is going to feel like she is in costume… just simply fabulous!

Personally, I was most excited about the healthy gifts inside the guide since they are perfect for any woman in your family. We know how important it is to take care of ourselves in order to live a healthy, long life so you can’t go wrong with a youth berry white tea from Teavana or The Body Book by Cameron Diaz, which are both reasonable priced gifts.

Lastly, The Arra David and Anne Johnson Stone wine glass pirouette set is a great way to bring wine and conversation to the table considering it is such a gorgeous and affordable piece. My aunt loves to entertain, and my family loves their wine… I think this one’s a keeper.

Shopping List:

Beauty Gifts: NeriumAD // Dior// Lancôme // Tom Ford

Chic Gifts: Kate Spade// Michael Kors // Anne Klein // Diane Von Furstenberg

Healthy Gifts: Uncommon Goods // The Body Book // One Kings Lane //
Teavana

Girl, check out that MANhattan this Valentine’s Day!

Tricks & Treats for Halloween

A Custom-Made Costume

From an expensive skimpy nurse to an overpriced naughty school girl, the prices of Halloween costumes are something to scream about. If being a beautiful butterfly costs $65 then perhaps you should think twice before making the expensive purchase. Not only are these costumes pricey, they rarely fit correctly, unless you’re Holly Madison of course. After I received my order on a sailor costume one year I couldn’t help but wonder where the breast implant donation was. Unfortunately, I was only left with the advice of my friends to use “chicken cutlets” (they obviously didn’t understand this costume required the whole chicken).
