Holiday Gift Guide - Guys Edition


Happy Black Friday! If you're like me, you are staying in today and taking advantage of all the amazing sales online. If you are out and about, well, good luck and godspeed!

It's no secret that Christmas is my favorite time of year. As much as I love shopping for gifts, it can be a little stressful when you're shopping for a guy that seems to already have everything. We always want our gifts to be unique, and finding that perfect gift for someone is often even more satisfying than receiving a gift ourselves. I have rounded up some of my favorite gift ideas for the guy in your life, starting with my number one: the JORD Wood Watch.


Lace Kimono + OTK Boots


         




Is anyone else obsessing over all the fall foliage? I have some favorite streets that I go out of my way to drive down just to see the vibrant fall colors. I know it won't last long, so I'm soaking it up as long as I can! I drive by this park pretty often, and finally decided to stop and snap a few photos.

This pretty lace kimono is perfect to throw on for a dainty touch to any outfit, and is currently only $16! I love wearing it with these black leggings and my Vince Camuto over the knee boots (which are both 25% off right now!). These boots might be my favorite of all time. They are oh so comfortable, and the faux suede is just so soft and chic. I'm not kidding, I will come home at the end of the day and will actually keep these on while I'm curled up on the couch because they are that cozy. I honestly want them in every color!


Taupe Oxfords


         



I have found some of the cutest (and affordable) shoes lately at IPPO, and these taupe oxfords immediately caught my eye. They are just so classic, yet the cutouts give them a very current look. IPPO is having one heck of a Black Friday week sale. EVERYTHING IS $10 - including my taupe oxfords and the wine booties I posted about here!

My crossbody bag and striped top are no longer available, but I have found some similar options that you can get to recreate this look - like this striped top and this taupe bag. These Citizens of Humanity jeans have been my favorite for a while now, and I love rolling them up a bit to show off my cute shoes!


My Fave eos Products + Giveaway!

       



I have been loving all of the new eos/Evolution of Smooth products that have came out recently. We all know they have amazing (and super cute) lip balms, but their new Shimmer Lip Balm is my absolute fave! It comes in Pearl and Sheer Pink, and they are both in my purse right now. So perfect to carry with you during the fall and winter months to keep your lips from getting chapped. They also make great stocking stuffers!


Grey Sweater & Wine Booties


         



This fall has been all about cozy chic - which, for me, means dressing up a comfy outfit with some killer booties and a pop of color. This Free People sweater is so cozy, and has the most gorgeous wrap detail on the front. It comes in 3 other colors, and is currently on sale (ends tomorrow, 11/12/16).

Fall Hair Therapy with Aussie



Fall is the season I look forward to the most, but at this point in the year my hair is always in serious need of therapy and restoration. I do my best to avoid heat styling as much as I can (rarely do I ever use a hair dryer), but sun damage and pool days during the summer can take a toll on hair just the same. I've come to realize that avoiding heat (from the sun and from styling) is just not enough to maintain a head of luscious locks. The types of products I use are so important and make a big difference in the health of my hair - both repairing damage and preventing future dryness and breakage.

Aussie has been one of my favorite hair care brands ever since I was a little girl. I remember treasuring my Aussie Sprunch Spray and loving the way it smelled! Now, as an adult, I still find myself turning to Aussie for everything from shampoo and conditioner to styling gel. Recently, I have been obsessed with Aussie's Total Miracle Collection 7N1 Shampoo and Conditioner. As with all Aussie products, the fragrance is amazing and it leaves behind silky smooth locks. It also combats frizz, which is super important in the Texas humidity.

         


I like to use Aussie Moist Shampoo and Conditioner when my hair is feeling extra dry. I have often compared it to being dehydrated and getting hooked up to an IV. When my hair gets itself into a parched predicament, Aussie Moist Shampoo brings it back to life. Once a week, I use the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Strong Conditioning Treatment (which has been a staple for many women since 1979). I can really tell a difference in the way my hair looks and feels after using it, and other people have noticed too!
