Do you have loved ones with expensive taste? This is the gift guide for them. I personally love luxury and the finer things in life. I also love to save my hard earned cash. Guess what you actually can have the best of both worlds, and this gift guide will show you how. Keep reading!
If you are thinking about a career change, the last thing you want to do is look out of place. You need to adapt your wardrobe to your new role, and become a new person. You can still maintain your personal style, but look the part. Office workers don’t look like teachers, and vice versa. If you would like to adapt your wardrobe while not looking like everyone else, read the below guide.
With the seasons changing, this can prompt many people to mix up their style and try something new. Although getting a winter coat and opting for some cozy cardigans are inevitable for most people, tweaking your style can give you that extra boost of energy now that the days are getting shorter. You don’t have to spend a lot of money or buy designer brands to look fresh, there are lots of ways to feel good about yourself. Trying out something new could surprise you and you might fall for something you never thought you would like. Check out some of these ideas, and let your style develop and change into something new.
With the holidays fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about gifts. Shopping for presents is one of the best things about the lead up to Christmas; not only do you have an excuse to go shopping, but you also get the chance to really spoil the people who you love. Yet the common complaint remains between the genders – that they have no idea what to buy the other one. For women, it can be straightforward, with candles, blankets, jewelry (a bit stereotypical but it’s true) but men can be a little bit more complicated to shop for.
Most people receive the same answer when you ask a guy what they want for Christmas: ‘I dunno’ or ‘nothing’ but imagine their shock when you hand them a box of nothing on the day. And while no one likes to use stereotypes – this might be the only time they are useful. You can easily shop for people by concentrating on one hobby they have, or one thing they love.
Ekk! Thanksgiving is next week which means the busiest travel week is upon us. I too am heading out for the holidays this year and cannot wait! I don’t know about you, but a vacation and a little downtime are exactly what I need. Every year, I pack a small bag and a big bag to travel. Both which get’s through security and on the plane with ease. Yep, I have mastered the art of traveling with only carry-ons. I, in fact, went to Europe for a full month with only one small roller bag and a purse. If you want for me to write a post on how to pack light, let me know in the comments!
Today I am sharing what I bring with me on my holiday travels. It’s typically the same essentials each year. And it looks a little something like this!
H&M is doing something very generous, and that is giving us extra savings on clothes we need for the holidays. You know the way to my hear, H&M.

I would wear these to Thanksgiving dinner, Holiday parties, or seriously any other time of the year. The incredible part is they are all under $50!

You’ll notice off the bat, velvet is a top trend that I am loving. This crushed velvet jacket in teal has been calling my name since the moment it hit stores, and now it is on sale! Throw it over some skinny deals and your favorite top and you’re ready to go.
Similarly, these wide-leg velvet pants are a total must for the holiday season. They feel like pajamas but looks super chic. Can’t go wrong for under $30! If you have a slightly more upscale party to attend, I really like this long black dress with a low cut back. Looking for more color? Try this blue wrap dress that is absolutely stunning! I’ve seen many stylists are pairing these dressed with knee boots for an edgy and modern twist.
Last top pick is this velvet fitted dress in either pink or black. Super cute and great for any occasion, even New Year’s Eve! The best part is it’s only $9.99.

I don’t know about you, but each year the holiday seems to get more and more expensive. However, I still like to treat my friends and colleagues with gifts. A reminder of how much they mean to me and a token of gratitude for the year we spent together. I found these 20 amazing gifts under 20 dollars that I think you’ll love to give as well.

It’s the go-to outfit we choose when we need a boost to our confidence; and when we want to feel like we have got everything under control.
No matter much you love that outfit, there is always the chance that you’ll go through the disconcerting experience of realizing… it doesn’t look as good as you remember. You’ll find yourself standing in front of the mirror, squinting at your reflection, and wondering what exactly happened. It’s still the same outfit; you’re wearing it in exactly the same way… but it just doesn’t have the miraculous effect that you once attributed to it.
