Gift guide for kids

I spend a lot of time with my nephew and niece, which is so much fun. I love running around and playing with them; it makes me feel like a kid again. I also love shopping for them. The kids clothes these days are so cute. I love that mom and daughter can wear similar clothes and both still look stylish.

Prague Christmas

I try to jump on a plane and go somewhere at least once a year. I love traveling and I know quite a few friends who are always itching to go somewhere, it doesn’t matter if it’s a weekend getaway, a road trip, or longer vacation across seas. Whether it’s for work or fun, I know my jet setting friends and family will love the items on this list.

Dresden Christmas Market

This year I really hit the Cyber Monday deals and online shopping hard. I’m happy to say that I finished all of my Christmas shopping. It’s a big feat to pull off before December even hits. With all of the looking and researching for gifts, I found a few things that I would love to find under the tree.

15 THINGS ON MY CHRISTMAS LIST

Note: The picture is from my Christmas trip to Germany a few years ago. It makes me want to go back.

This summer was so hot I couldn’t think about wearing jeans, especially during the day. It still continues to be blazing outside. When the temps get this high the only type of pants I want to wear look a lot like pajamas. I reach for cool, airy cotton and loose fitting pants. I wear these harem pants when I’m lounging, and they have become great pants to write in. My writing attire has to be casual wear. Nothing restricted.

Venice Beach, Natalie Notions

The sheer trend is here to stay for fall. If you watched the VMAs or saw any of the red carpet pics, you saw a lot of sheer blouses and skirts. It’s also been all over the glossies and my favorite fashion sites. Pulling off the sheer trend without a camisole or non-sheer top underneath requires a bit of confidence. It also depends on where you’re wearing it. I wouldn’t suggest wearing sheer to the office, but you can definitely get away with it for a night out.

I used to not be confident wearing a sheer top with a bra underneath showing through. But as the confidence grew, as well as the trend, I started to wear it more and more. If you’re unsure of the trend, my best advice is to get a pretty lace bra and just go for it.
