Have you ever listened to the song New Years Day by Taylor Swift? She sings one of my favorite lines, "Hold on to the memories; they will hold on to you. And I will hold on to you." These words sum up exactly how I feel about this new year ahead. I want to hold on to all of it. Hold on to it all so tightly.
I always love making my gift guide for the ladies! Let's be honest with all the shopping we do each year it is hard to not add a few things to the cart for ourselves! I was on the hunt last night to find items I think would make great gifts for all age ranges, price points, and styles! There is a little bit of everything here and lots of shoes, bags, sparkles, and accessories. My last gift guide was all about home, and this one is about spoiling the ladies on your list! Forward it to your husband, keep it for your birthday, there are 100 little hand-picked gems by me for you below!
I love decorating, I love hosting, and I love being home! If you know someone like this, welcome to the gift guide of your dreams! I often hear that I am hard to buy for which always baffles me because hello neutrals, warm cozy things, mercury, candles, gold, blush, and anything you might find in a Scandinavian country! What is so hard about that? No, trust me, they are right. I am hard to buy for because I like what I like, and I hate what I don't! I'm sure some can relate! If you have someone like me on your list. Stop. Drop. Get ready to Shop!
It's 7:30 pm, and as I currently type this, everyone is in bed. The whole house is quiet, the dishwasher is humming, lights are turned off, dogs fed, toys put away, but if you told me it was midnight, I would believe you. If you walked into our house right now, you would feel peace and calm if you walked in eight hours prior, not so much. Our days start early, and my body, my back, and my head have never felt more tired. That mom life is no joke. No book or schooling can quite prepare you for the journey that is motherhood. You feel it all. This tiny person who grew so snugly in your womb is now such a big piece of your heart you can't imagine life without them. But there are the growing pains, the messes, the learning, the teething, the constant mama's. It is one giant beautiful mess.
Holiday dresses are my favorite category of clothing! Of course, adding a bump to the mix makes everything a little more complicated, but I couldn't resist sharing a few of the styles I found with you! None of these are maternity, but they do work with the bump because they are stretchy, or you can order up a lot and make it work! And if you aren't rocking an extra accessory like me, then you are in luck because you have your pick of them all! I went with all different price points, lots of sequins, sparkles, Little Black Dresses, and plenty of drama! No matter what your calendar holds this season, there is a little something for everyone!
