Do you feel like you either have to love or hate Valentine’s Day? I have a date this year, but I’ve been single for a few years before this one and I’ve honestly never disliked the holiday. It’s a good excuse to eat food in the shape of hearts and wear pink and to treat your loved ones (or yourself!) Valentine’s Day gifts are usually pretty cheesy (maybe even kind of lame) so I rounded up a few cute things that girls would actually like.
This Chloe perfume is my ultimate favourite – it’s a light and feminine, but the scent lasts, and the bottle is just so pretty. I’ve been thinking about buying a few lacy things, and this Free People bralette looks comfortable and sexy. I’m obsessed with David’s Tea, and this blend of Earl Grey Tea with chocolate and rose petal sounds perfect for Valentine’s Day and I’m going to go and buy it for myself immediately.
Can you guys believe Christmas is only 9 days away?! This year, especially the past few months, have absolutely flown by for me. Moving to a new city, starting a new job, making new friends (and keeping in touch with old), fostering a puppy… I’ve been insanely busy (in the best way) and I honestly think it’s crazy that mid December has rolled around.
Do you guys still get stockings? I actually was kind of under the impression that everyone did, until I started asking some friends. It turns out that I might be a minority. My stocking has always been one of my favourite parts of Christmas – usually I have some idea of what presents my parents are going to get me, but my stocking is always full of so many fun surprises. I usually spend Christmas morning at my dad’s house, and my step mom (I mean Santa) always puts so much thought into my stocking, and it’s so fun to get to go through everything and compare stockings with my brothers and sisters. My roommate, Kelsea, and I also decided to do stockings for each other this year, which I am super excited about. I’ve never got to fill anyone else’s stocking before!
I thought I would put together a little gift guide, just in case you still have a bit of Christmas shopping to do (I know I do!) These are a combination of favourite little treats that I already own and love, and some things that I’ve been pining after. I hope you like it!
