Secret Santa Gift Guide: $20 and Under

One of the best parts of the Holiday Season is having Secret Santas pretty much every week. I mentioned here the other day how much I love to gift people, so shopping for Secret Santa is always a lot of fun. The tricky thing about this kind of gift exchange is that often times people don’t necessarily know much about each other’s personalities, thus they don’t know what to get.

Holiday Gift Guide for Him

The Holiday Season always gets me super excited because I love to gift people and plan little events. If I could do these two things all year long, I would.

Why I Changed My Skin Care Routine

I’ve never been the kind of person who cared about skin care that much. That’s partially due to the fact that I’ve had pretty good skin for most of my life (thanks for the good genes, mom!), and partially because I’m a naturally lazy person. All of that changed once I turned 25 - you guys, it’s been less than 3 months - and mother nature decided it was about time for me to start having skin problems.

The Boots You Will Need (And Want!) This Fall

I’ve previously mentioned here how obsessed I am with shoes. And I have to admit that was great to hear from you that I’m not alone.  

When I posted a poll on my Stories asking if you guys were interested in post about my favorites shoes for this fall/winter I did not expect the overwhelming amount of people who would vote “yes.” As a matter of fact, I only got one vote for no, which came from my friend Michel - I see you, dude.

DIY Marble Tray

This is my first time writing about DIY projects! Yay! 

I’ve been seeing the marble tray craze everywhere, and always felt like I was missing out for not having one. I’ve exhaustively tried to find one that was both pretty and affordable, but most options out there don’t fit both categories, so I decided to create my own marble tray using basically 3 things: an old wooden tray, spray paint and contact paper.

Work Together, Play Together

One of the things I get constantly asked is how Chris and I manage to live and work together, especially because we both work “from home.” So I thought it’d be interesting to clarify what we do and how we do it, and hopefully inspire some of you to start your own business with you S.O.
