Tiffany & Co. Holiday 2010

I am just in LOVE with the Tiffany Holiday Ads this years. Each one is so beautifully done and I adore them all. I don’t know which one is my favorite. It is possibly the one with the family below or the couple sitting at a Cafe outside and of course the one above with the guy pulling the Christmas tree.


Do you have a favorite one? Also watch this video. It makes me so happy. I am a sucker for Christmas music and this video is so beautiful. I think it is going to be a favorite of one for years to come.

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: FOR HIM

 

Happy December 1st! Can you believe it is already December? I don’t know about you, but December is my absolute favorite month and I couldn’t be more excited! I have already started listening to Christmas music early last week and am in the process of putting up our Christmas tree. I would’ve done it last weekend, but it was pretty hectic with our two Thanksgiving on Thursday and an extra one on Saturday. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones last week. I had an great time seeing all of my relatives and enjoying all the delicious food. Every year I am responsible for making the desserts at my family’s Thanksgiving and this year I went all out and made the traditional pumpkin pie, an apple crisp and a french silk pie. I had my younger sister, along with my little cousin over my house the night before to help me bake. We had so much fun staying up late baking and waking up early to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.

 

I was even adventurous enough this year to go shopping on Black Friday. My sisters and I, along with my sister-in-law went to the Mall of America from four in the morning until 8 AM. It was a mad house there, but it was so much fun to see everybody out. It was very crowded, but everyone was happy and not really pushy or anything.  We went to Old Navy first, then Urban Outfitters, H & M, Macy’s, Forever 21, Express, Nordstrom Rack and lastly Steve Madden. I got some sweaters, PJ bottoms, and jackets for my sisters, Mike and I at Old Navy. They had great deals on everything plus they were giving away a free Dance Central Kinect game with a $25 purchase, which was great. Urban Outfitters had an additional 50% off sale items and Express had a 40% everything before noon. I picked up a couple of shirts and pants for Mike at Express and also used a $50 off a $150 purchase, so I got everything for less then $100. I also picked up some clothes at H& M and Nordstrom Rack for Mike for Christmas. What I was really excited about was my “Iden” boots I got at Steve Madden. I’ve been trying to find some simple black wedge boots for awhile now. I purchased the Steve Madden “Intyce”, but returned them because I didn’t like how much they sagged around my ankle. I love the “Iden” because they hold their shape really well and are very comfy. I got a lot of things for Mike checked off my Christmas list, but have a lot more to go! Did you guys do any shopping on Black Friday? Find any good deals? How about Cyber Monday? There were a lot of good deals on Monday, but mostly everything I found was for myself, so I didn’t buy anything. I am trying to be good this month and not buy anything for myself. lol. We’ll see how that goes!

 

Well as you can see here is the “Holiday Gift Guide: For Him”. A lot of the things on this are things I’ve gotten for Mike and things I think he would like or any guy would like. I know it is a little disorganized, but here is the list of everything.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this Gift guide for that special guy in your life. Look for more “Gift Guides” to come. Have a lovely Tuesday!

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: FOR THE GLAMOUR GIRL

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It was quite an eventful weekend for me. We had our first snowfall of the year two weekends ago and it has only gotten colder from there. Mike and I were at a friends Birthday party on Saturday night when the roads froze over. While driving home you couldn’t go a mile without seeing a car either in a ditch or left on the side of the road. That was how bad it was! Luckily for us, we made it home in one piece.  Brrr…It definitely feels like Christmas is right around the corner and as promised I am doing a Holiday Gift Guide of my own picks for the perfect gifts for everyone in your life. Well maybe not everyone….

 

Over the following weeks leading up to Christmas I will be posting many other “Holiday Gift Guides” which will feature gifts grouped by subject, such as this one “Glamour Girl”. These items are all of my favorite picks for that girl in your life who is into fashion, beauty and just love glamorous things! I tried to include a range of items with different price points to make it easier to shop. Also be on the lookout for my  “Holiday Gift Guide:  $25 and under” featuring lots of products that I think you’re going to love! I hope you all enjoy this and check back soon for more “Holiday Gift Guides”.

I won’t deny that several, if not all of these item are on my own Christmas wish list. I mean who wouldn’t love to have that fabulous sparkling clutch on their shoulders while out at a Holiday party or that lovely necklace shining around their decolletage paired with that perfect little black dress. Did I mention that the Juicy Couture cocktail ring doubles as solid perfume holder? Just dab a little bit on our neck and wrist and you will feel and smell glamorous, very couture couture indeed. Any girl would will feel so special to be able to wear the seasons hottest colors on their nails or that adorable bracelet on their wrist. I especially adore the Tocca perfume set. It includes two of my favorite scents, Stella and Florence. Have you smelled these fragrances yet? They are so lovely and light. Tocca has several different kinds and I want to own all of them!! And what glamour girl would be without a great essential makeup brush set, like this Bobbi Brown one. Just perfect for travel or to carry with you everyday. And I know you are definitely eyeing that Marc Jacobs wallet for yourself. It is one of the  chicest wallet I’ve ever seen. I am in love with the gold clasp and the embossed logo on the lambskin. Tres chic!

 

Have a lovely Monday!
