Holiday Gift Guide



Just in time for the holiday season is my first gift guide (don’t worry, I’ll also cover gifts for the guys in your life and home in the next couple of weeks).  I love shopping for others; I think of it as a challenge to find the perfect gift! I always create a wish list of my favorite wants to help my family out a bit and many of these items are on my wish list too.  Does anyone else use Amazon’s wish list?  I’ve used it for the past couple of years – it’s easy to save items from any website and also create lists for everyone you need to shop for!


one: J Crew Hughes Satchel ($298)
two: Creme de la Creme Sweater ($121)
three: BaubleBar Emerald Cut Necklace ($68)
four: Essie Bobbing for Baubles ($9) (my favorite polish color for the fall and winter!)
five: Ugg Australia Dakota Slipper ($100)
six: Old Navy Women’s Jacket ($45)
seven: Kate Spade Shady Lady Mittens ($68)


I’ve recently read several articles on Malala Yousafzai (Vanity Fair, Glamour).  Malala’s courage both before and after she was attacked is so inspiring.  It’s amazing how someone so young has such spirit to help others and inspires me to do more.  I know there are so many worthy organizations to support both here and abroad.  If you read these articles and feel you’d like to support Malala’s mission to ensure all girls receive formal education, please visit The Malala Fund to donate.  Whatever organization you choose to support, please consider making a gift this holiday season!
