Abundant Joy!

she reads truth

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends! May you find joy in all the blessings God has poured out on us. I'm humbled on this day, as I think of the many good gifts the Father has given me. I'm so thankful for my family, friends, health, love, a job I love, passion, His grace and faithfulness, and so many more things. This life is a true gift.

Enjoy the day!

Gift Guide: For Her

DETAILS | striped phone case (under $25!) / turquoise earrings / boots (25% off!) / black snowflake PJs / lip gloss (gift with purchase!) / Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream perfume / water bottle / 2016 planner / sweater pullover /

Today I'm sharing a guide to some fun gifts for the ladies in your life. Whether that's a sister, best friend, mom, daughter, or you want to give a little hint to someone else about a gift YOU want, I have you covered today. 

I'm in need of a new perfume, so I did the work for you and found my favorite perfume in the store the other day. I just love this Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs! I've also included my favorite lip gloss ever. It's shiny, long lasting and not sticky! (I should do a commercial for them...) My mom (I mean "Santa") always gets us PJ's, so I found a few of my favorite pairs. Those snowflakes are adorable and the material seems extra cozy!

Here are some more gift ideas:

Last year I got these matte navy Hunter Boots and I love them! They're great in rain (clearly!) and snow, too!
For those engaged or married gals out there, I am obsessed with these Mrs. Boxes! They're the prettiest ring boxes to keep an eye on your bling :) 

I love my blanket scarf and think it's a great gift idea!

I also rounded up some gifts UNDER $25 for the girls:

A lot of these items are on MY Christmas wish list. What's on yours?! I can't believe Thanksgiving is TOMORROW! Enjoy your day:)

Gift Guide: Snow Bunny

DETAILSgreen anorack jacket / white coat / black button up coat / bubblegum coat / gray vest / snowflake socks / blush gloves / gray slouchy hat (under $20!) / plaid scarf

For us folks who live in a freezing tundra for 4-5 months of the year (let's just say it's only going to be 4 this month!) this is the gift guide for you! Maybe you want to add some of these gift ideas to YOUR list, or maybe you want to get them for loved ones. Because really, what's more loving than giving the gift of warming someone's heart? Literally.

I love stuffing socks, hats, and scarves into stockings. I gave my mom a pair of socks in her stocking last year (and even got myself the same pair) and she loves them. She asked for another pair this year. Ask and you shall receive! The above socks are under $17 and are usually discounted 30%. It's the same pair I got last year and was SUPER happy with them. This snowflake print is just a different adorable. Mom, if you're reading this, consider one of your surprises spoiled ;)

A good winter coat is a must. I have 3 and somedays I feel like that's not even enough! In freezing weather, your coat becomes THE outfit, so invest in one you love! This one is on my list. So is this gray puffy jacket. It says it's supposed to keep me warm in 35 degree weather, so that sounds promising!

Also essential are these gloves that allow you to use your phone while you're wearing them. I have this exact pair, and let me tell you, I'm really not sure what I'd do without them. Seriously worth every penny!
