Oh, You Shouldn't Have...

Well, it's that time of year again! It's time for all sorts of grand gift giving plans, and then it's time to procrastinate and scramble to buy whatever will arrive with the fastest free shipping. Not that anyone has ever done that...


This year let's do something different. Whether your gifts are for the holidays, or just treating yourself for surviving another week at work, here are some ideas to get the juices flowing well before the calendar hits December.

For the home:
Have you discovered the amazingness that is JCrew's factory website? As in, outlet prices without driving to the outlet mall. It's fabulous. And they sell more than just clothes. Check out this jewelry tray and this chic ceramic mug. Get them each for less than $20!

For the fitness guru:
I've lately become obsessed with barre classes, and so I've been looking to step up my workout wardrobe game. This tank is perfect. And water is a must for any workout. I recommend getting a S'well bottle. They keep cold things cold and hot things hot for a very long time...24 and 12 hours respectively.

For the techie:
Go for the Amazon Echo. You talk to her...she plays music, tells you the weather, and wakes you up. She's like Siri's older, wiser sister. For something a little less expensive, check out these beautiful iPhone cases. Finding a cute and practical phone case isn't easy. All the cute designer ones offer zero protection, and if you're anything like me, you need your phone to be able to survive a fall or two (or three). These cases are cute on the outside and tough on the inside, which is exactly what my phone needs.

For the beauty junkie:
So many options, so little time. The Lorac PRO To Go Palette makes a great gift with a little bit of everything for eyes and cheeks. And I can't wait to get my hands on the new LOC line from Birchbox! But let's be real, I already ordered the entire collection for myself. So much for for waiting for the holidays!
