The start of a new year means hitting the refresh button. I know many of you have made New Year’s resolutions, but does that extend to your closet, too? If you’re anything like me, then you’re trying to cut the clutter and reduce the overwhelm which extends to my wardrobe, too.
Disclosure: Thanks to Haverdash for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own!
In 2018, I was first introduced to the concept of renting my wardrobe. And then in 2019, I met Haverdash. Haverdash is a newer clothing rental subscription service providing unlimited access to the latest looks from boutique brands like 1.State, cupcakes and cashmere, French Connection, BB Dakota, Comune, J.O.A., and many, many more. I love keeping up with the trends and mixing up my wardrobe, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve purchased something to only wear it once or to find it hanging in my closet with the tags still on it.
While I have worked to reduce these bad habits, renting my wardrobe helps me eliminate this problem completely. By borrowing the trend first, I can see if I actually like the style and try it with the rest of my wardrobe. It’s kind of like the revolving closet from Clueless that so many of us dreamed about when we were younger. (Who am I kidding, I still dream about this!)
If kicking off the New Year by renting a wardrobe with the help of Haverdash sounds up your alley, then read on for all of the details!
Ah, it’s the holiday season and it wouldn’t be that time of year without something going a little haywire, would it? I think we’ve all had that “oops” realization that you missed picking up an important gift, or maybe plans changed in the eleventh hour and now you need to find a last-minute gift… stat!
In the spirit of embracing those last-minute panicky gift moments, I thought I’d put a twist on my annual beauty gift guide. I’ve hand-selected each beauty item (yes, I’ve tried EVERYTHING on this list!), plus I’m including all the details of exactly when you need to order online to receive it in time to place it under the tree, cool as a cucumber of course!
So if you’re ready to knock out the rest of your holiday list, or if you’re just shopping for yourself, I hope these beauty gift ideas will have you hitting check out, then kicking back your feet and relaxing with a cup of cocoa in no time!

Who’s still shopping for gifts for the holiday season?! If you have your hand raised then you’re not alone; I’m still shopping too! Fortunately, thanks to the wonderful thing that is the Internet, we can procrastinate, order online, and still get it in time for putting under the tree this holiday season! And if you still have a few stockings left to fill, I have the perfect gift solution.
What’s something that everyone you know is always carrying around? Their cell phone, of course! And when you carry a cell phone, you know how important the case is. Not only do they protect your phone, but they can also make a fashion statement, show off your personality, be practical, or a combination of all of them!
Enter the tech21 case. Whether you’re shopping for a mom (who would love the anti-microbial Studio Color case), a fashionista (who would love the Liberty London designs!), or the man in your life (who would probably love the Evo Check!), there’s something for everyone on your list.
Every holiday season, the internet blows up with holiday gift ideas. Last year, I had an idea that was a little different. I wanted to do more with each holiday gift that I gave, and I wanted to find the best holiday gifts that give back.
Honestly, though, I ended up overwhelmed. I had nearly 100 browser tabs open and was scouring each brand’s website to figure out exactly what giving back meant to each company. Some donated a portion of sales, a portion of profits, or products on a 1:1 basis to a specific charity or organization. Others make giving back to the communities in which they work in a part of their company ethos. I quickly realized it was going to take a lot more time and research to figure out exactly which companies aligned with what I was looking for!
Gifts that Give Back
So, since coming up with this idea, I’ve slowly compiled, saved, and communicated with a variety of companies that have a giving back mission. While I haven’t personally tried each and every product on this list, I have tried almost all of them. As you finish your holiday shopping this season and look for gifts at any time of year, I hope this list of charitable brands and gifts that give back is helpful!
Traditions; we all have them. The holidays often bring about time to celebrate family traditions and the opportunity to make new ones. As newer homeowners, we have slowly added new traditions every holiday season, and have also incorporated some of what I grew up with, too.
In many households, holiday traditions revolve around the kitchen. In our family, it’s no different. The kitchen has always been a gathering space where the grandmas, moms, aunts, and cousins share treasured recipes and have a good time while preparing the meal for everyone to enjoy. When it came my time to determine what type of traditions I wanted to carry on, creating and preserving family recipes was at the top of my list!
With the holiday season nearly upon us, I’m excited to partner with Albert Lee Appliance to share some of my treasured family recipes. Additionally, I’ll be highlighting some of the great features from the GE Profile appliances that help make holiday cooking and baking easier than ever!
