Holiday Week of Chic: What your Bestie Wants Giveaway

Happy Friday Guys!!

We are on to day four of our Holiday Week of Chic Giveaway series! And that also means less than 10 days until Christmas (holy moly!) so I am sharing some of the things that are on my list for my best friends including some fun pieces from today's giveaway with J.McLaughlin and Margaret O'Leary.   

Guys, this Forever 21 clutch is my favorite bargain of the season ($7).  I literally bought four of them (3 as gifts and one for myself)!  My friends and I are always needing to charge our phones while we are out and about so this glittery Kate Spade charger would be a perfect gift!  I was just talking to two of my girl friends the other night and we all love these monogrammed necklaces.  Bauble Bar does a great job all together with gifts.  I just received a few of my orders in the mail and can't wait to give them on Christmas.  I particularly love this set from them!

For today's giveaway we are so excited to be partnering with J.McLaughlin and Margaret O'leary to give away a pair of sunnies and the coziest scarf!  J.McLaughlin recently launched a new line of sunglasses  and I love that a classic pair like Lacey and I are wearing never go out of style! And who doesn't need a warm piece like this scarf to bundle with during this chilly winter?

Have a wonderful Friday!!

Gift Guide - Every Day Favorites!

Raindrops on roses... and whiskers on kittens... bright copper kettle and warm woolen mittens!  Ok - I wont sing anymore, but that is definitely one of my favorite movies of all time!  In case you are still looking for some last minute gift ideas I will still have a few more gift guides for you the next couple of days! Today's gift guide is a list of tried and true things that I have, love and use on the reg!

I wear my glossy red Hunters everywhere (I wore here and here) and they have been such a fun addition to my winter boots,  even in the 12 inches of snow we just got in Denver!  I know us gals (sometimes) think about fashion over functionality, but these have tons of traction so are actually great in the snow - and perfect warm with a thick sock like these cute and cozy ones ($16.50 / 40% off with code BRNICK).   

Until this year, I never imagined myself getting use out of my white jeans much after summer.  I have gotten more wear out of these jeans (I wore here) this fall and winter, more than any other pair in my closet.  And love this personalized wrap ($48) that is very similar to this one here. 

I recently wore this coat - $139 + 20% off and free shipping with code dontmelt - (for our Christmas pictures here!) and have been wearing it non stop since! It so warm and cozy, yet has a tailored fit and not overly bulky which sometimes happens with warm winter coats.

Makeup is such a great stocking stuffer!  I have had a few emails about my favorite makeup essentials.  These are them! I love mascara... I could happily leave the house without most makeup, but just feel naked without mascara.  I love the Extreme Party mascara  - it can be layered on without clumping and still makes lashes look thick and long.  I have been loading on this Extra Lip tint - it is the perfect mix of a chapstick and lipstick.... so perfect for moisturizing and adding a little color.

I am always happy to answer any questions! Please feel free to email them or comment with them below :).  Hope your week has been wonderful!


Wish List Wednesday - Christmas Jammies

Growing up my mom had a field day dressing my sisters and me alike.  Her favorite time to do this, of course, was the holiday season.  She would often make giant bows for our hair, or matching dresses for us to wear on Christmas Eve.  My sisters were never thrilled about our coordinating ensembles... guess who was πŸ™‹  

Each year we were allowed to open one gift on Christmas Eve.... It was always jammies!  To this day,  this tradition holds true.  And it is the gift we each look forward to every year and joyfully parade around in our matching sets.

This adorable flannel set ($68) just arrived at my doorstep - I got it in red which has sold out, but there are a few sizes left in navy (more sizes available in this print $64.50)! I know mom has other plans in mind for this year's pajama look (there was talk of footed PJs like these ($29.99 - extra 25% off with code: Friend) for Jonny and Matt, we can't exclude the guys!  Last year we branched out from the traditional pant set and went with a nightshirt like this one ($68) or this one ($39.50) (I wear mine all the time!) (also like this one $17).  This set from J.Crew is also a gorgeous, classic option and love that they offer monogramming! You guys know how I feel about anything with a monogram... gets me every time.  

I always love cozying up Christmas morning in my new jammies... throwing on a cozy robe (I like this one $35.50!).... and slippers (like these $55!) and spending the day with my family by the tree drinking cocoa and eating leftover Christmas cookies.

What fun traditions do you have?

The Best Cyber Monday Sales + a little giveaway

Hi Friends!!

I hope you had a great long weekend relaxing and enjoying time with your loved ones! I did a lot of my shopping on Black Friday, but always save some purchases for Cyber Monday since it is the last day to take advantage of the big deals (and sometimes best ones) before gift giving season begins.

Above are some of my picks of great sale items (click directly on item for more info) - for some reason I couldn't get these adorable Sole Society shoes to link, they are so cute and in tons of different prints and 30% off site wide today!  These Ray-Ban's are a mix of my two favorite sunglasses that I wear all of the time and are a steal ($119 - usually $170 through 11/30).  I also love this cream quilted parka I love a coat that is super cozy and warm, yet not overly bulky and still feminine (43% off today and $95 through 11/30).  I bought these pjs - so cute for the holidays and cozy for the inevitable chilly winter ahead (and 50% + an extra 15% off with code todayonly)!  I think this Kate Spade cross body (30% off today with code Shine) is such a great gift idea - they are offering personalization on a number of their items.  Personalized gifts always add such a great touch.  I always feel so special receiving a personalized gift so do my best to give them as often as possible.
