Thanksgiving is almost here! 5 days until major traveling starts for so many people. I wanted to use the weekends here on my blog to introduce gift guides that will help you in your holiday shopping. I know how much gift guides help with my shopping, so I figured I would help you out as well. I will be having a new gift guide here on the blog every weekend until Christmas, so I hope you enjoy. First up is a gift guide for the world traveler:

As I’ve gotten older, I am realizing more and more that I LOVE to travel. Recently I’ve been on trips to Dallas, Houston, and Lubbock. Are we seeing a Texas trend here?

These items are all guaranteed to make traveling a breeze and your globe trotting BFF will thank you.

The last trip, I took two external phone chargers. I love that they are portable, and this one from Sonix is adorable! I took this Henri Bendel wallet & jewelry case on my last trip, and they keep me organized on the go.  They are high quality leather as well which is nice. You can get them monogrammed, too!

Hands down my favorite perfume of all time is Euphoria. It smells DIVINE, and you don’t get overpowered by the smell. It lasts all day! The rollerball version travels well, and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Don’t forget to throw in a pair of foldable flats on your next trip. I took two pairs of these to Houston, and I’m thankful I did. They don’t take up a lot of room in your bag, and they are super comfortable. Also, who wants to put dirty shoes in your luggage with your clothes? Not me. I love these drawstring bags to keep your bag clean & organized.

Lastly, never forget a travel journal to write down all of your memories from your trips. You never know when those will come in handy ;) Monogram this journal for you or your BFF!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out today’s gift guide for the world traveler!

XO & Happy Holidays,



Hey everyone! I hope you all are enjoying this cooler weather. I’m so thankful that it’s not 80 degrees when I leave work at night. And how are enjoying the time change? I’m loving the extra hour of sleep I get; however, it feels like it’s SO late all the time when it gets dark at 5pm. I have found myself going to bed earlier which is KEY to a healthy body. My friends over at MyChelle sent me three products to try for healthier skin and I want to share them with you today. I can definitely see a difference with the Vitamin C contained in these powerful skincare products.

If you know, you know that I’m a sucker for pretty packaging. I love clean, sleek packaging and MyChelle definitely fits the bill. But what I love even more is products that work. I love products that do what they claim to do.

First up, the “Perfect C Radiance Lotion” is a handy moisturizer that is best when used daily. When moisturizers are light enough to be used daily, they are a must-have in my opinion. I do not like putting on a heavy moisturizer that weighs my skin down.

About the Perfect C Radiance Lotion:

This velvety-rich, nutrient- and moisture-restoring lotion delivers a potent 12% dose of L-Ascorbic Acid combined with Plant C-Stem™ and Licorice Extract to help brighten and protect skin from the effects of environmental pollution for a smoother and more luminous complexion.

The “Perfect C Pro Speed Peel” is up next. When I can get spa-like benefits in an at-home peel, count me in. My schedule is demanding. I’m either usually at work on on the road, so this product is perfect for me. After cleansing my face, I apply this product.

About the Perfect C Pro Speed Peel:

An Industry First! This one-step professional Vitamin C peel, is formulated with a powerful dose of 10% L-Ascorbic Acid, 1% L-Lactic Acid, Plant C-Stem™ and Retinal to deliver youthful, glowing skin. Formulated with 25% Citrus Fruit fragrant puree, in only one minute, this fact-acting peel retexturizes skin while gently exfoliating to deliver youthful, soft, and glowing skin.

Lastly, I follow with “Bio-Firm Hydrogel Concentrate” before I head off to bed. This powerful concentrate is one that helps skin to regenerate while I sleep! When a product works without much effort from me, I’m sold.

About Bio-Firm Hydrogel Concentrate:

A concentrated 2% Hyaluronic Acid moisture-binding gel that melts to instantly smooth and fi rm skin. Packed with potent Alpine Nunatak™ Plant Stem Cells and Crocus Chrysanthus Bulb Extract to help fi rm and provide deep nourishment and hydration.

What I really like about these products is the care that MyChelle puts into creating effective treatments without compromising on ingredients.  All MyChelle products are Vegetarian, Cruelty-free, and Free of Phthalates, Parabens, Sulfates, Ureas, Artificial Fragrances and Colors, Petroleum, GMOs, and Gluten.

 Thanks for reading & following! XO,


Thanks to MyChelle for sending me these three products to try. As always, all thoughts & opinions are my own.
