Gifts for him… a simpler gift category as far as product variety, but often the most difficult to choose from without knowing the recipient really well. So for this gift list I’ve carefully selected classic yet modern gift items that incorporate functionality/versatility. At various price points, these are all items I would be happy to give as a gift. In fact, I’ve already selected or purchased a few for my own “Gifts for Him” gift list. 😉
Christmas music started playing on the radio last weekend so you know what that means… the holiday season is officially here! In the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing my gift guides. So get those lists checked off early and focus your energy on enjoying the festivities of the season! To start off is my gift guide for Beauty Product Gifts. There are a lot of gift sets that are made specifically for or during the holidays that are not available at other times of the year. Because these sets tend to be very special product offerings at a great price, they often sell out fast. Check these out first and buy the ones you love before they’re gone.
To continue from my previous post (sorry for the delay!), fashion week in London and Milan followed in the same direction as in NYC. Highlights were also modern suiting, lots of color and an optimistic vibe. I particularly loved the collections by Roland Mouret and Victoria Beckham in London, and Drome and Seventy in Milan. As hoped, Paris Fashion Week followed suit as a grand finale to an upbeat season for SS20 with sophistication and excitement the way only Paris can bring. 🙂
Tote bags are an essential part of my ‘everyday’ outfit look. Going to meetings or just doing errands, they are my bag of choice to hold everything that I may need in one place! Because tote bags are used regularly as well as in a variety of situations, I’m careful to select a tote that is classic, well-made and in a neutral/ versatile color. Most importantly, the tote needs to be lightweight. I often carry my laptop or books so the lighter the bag, the better!
Tote Bags for Work and Play: My Faves
The Louis Vuitton ‘Neverfull’, Saint Laurent ‘Shopping’ and the Goyard ‘Saint Louis’ totes shown below are my fave classic totes that I use on rotation. Not only lightweight, these are all minimal in their design resulting in a clean, uncomplicated look. My tote du jour is the Saint Laurent. In classic black, it is elegant and timeless.
I use my bags on a daily basis for years, so I’m willing to spend a little more to make sure that I get one that I will love to use. Below are some totes at a slightly lower price point that I also like… 🙂
It’s been a long time! Meant to post sooner but with summer vacay, the kids (and puppy), and setting up my new office (if you haven’t seen my Instagram stories… yes I have a new office!), I have been busy!! Back to more regular blogging soon but until then, just wanted to jump in here quick to share some of my faves from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
As I get older, my skincare regimen and makeup products are increasingly important to me. It’s not just about the quality of the products/ingredients, but it’s also about how effective they are. With a busy schedule, I only want to use products that I love which serve their purpose or at least make me feel better. 🙂 Fortunately, there are so many great beauty products to choose from, and the diversity and quality seems to be improving year after year! This post is a round up of my current favorite skincare and makeup products that I use regularly(mostly daily) and love. See below for my review…
