If you are anything like me you still have a few people you need to shop for before Monday hits. It isn't that I am procrastinating but more so I think I have more time to do it then I actually do. Not that we have 2 days left and most places, this is the last day to order online, I wanted to help any of those people that still needed a little help with any last minute shopping! I know there isn't a lot on the list below, but this will help get you started. 

Sephora: This is seriously an easy and awesome gift that is under $70. I bought Eric the Cologne Sampler this year because he needed a new cologne, but I didn't know what to get him. This kit comes with 12 samplers (which will take a while to use all of them) and once you pick the scent you love, you take the certificate that came in the kit back to Sephora to redeem a full-sized bottle of that cologne at no extra cost. It also comes is a great looking cosmetics case! 

Best Buy: Is a great option for that tech lover! Right now Beat headphones are on an amazing sale including this Studio2 for $160. There are also a lot of video game deals. If you are a big spender go with a TV

Barnes and Noble: Have a guy in your life that loves to read? Head to your local bookstore or a Barnes and Noble to pick up some awesome reading material. Check out these bestsellers

Sephora: Sephora offers the same thing (cologne sampler) for women! The Perfume Sampler might even be a better choice for women because it comes with 17 samplers. Choose your favorite and take back the scent certificate in your kit to redeem for a full-size bottle of your favorite fragrance, no extra cost. If you personally are on the hunt for a new perfume, I would suggest treating yourself and giving this a go! It is an awesome idea and price. 

Sephora also offers some great gift sets for hair including this Extend Your Style Dry Shampoo CollectionReady, Set, Style! and Prep & Protect. If you are an It Cosmetics lover like me this is an amazing gift set where you are getting the full-size product plus 3 others for the same price as that full-size products. I actually bought this It Cosmetics kit for myself yesterday because it is only $10 and that is the price for the travel size mascara and it really wanted to try the Bye Bye Makeup. For the makeup, this Too Faced kit retails for $285 and now is only $36! My store still had a few, but it is an awesome deal! Tarte has a similar kit that retails for $433 now only $49. 

Nordstrom: You can seriously find a gift for anyone here, but if she loves clothes, shoes and beauty items I would suggest Nordstrom! 

Places Still Shipping
Amazon: Are you a prime member? Today is the last day for the free two-day shipping! Amazon seriously has everything so you should be all set here for last minute gifts! Some things I suggest include Fire StickEcho Dot or any of these great stocking stuffers
Nordstrom: For $10 you can get rushed delivery if you order today by noon et! Of course, Nordstrom offers a large range of brands and gifts for just about everyone. Some things I would suggest include Beauty giftsTravel giftsLuxe gifts and Fitness gifts.
J.Crew: You have 3 hours left to get guaranteed holiday delivery by the 12/23 for $20! They offer a ton of great stocking stuffers and of course cute clothes!

I am so in love with dress pants it's weird! The last pair I wore was in this post here. I just love how dressed up they make any look and that you can style them with a cute heel. The great thing about these lace pants is they have an elastic waistband making it extremely comfortable to wear but also easy to tuck in a shirt plus they are under $40! 

Well I get ready for the holidays I am also getting ready to go on vacation after the New Year so I have been doing so much shopping! Let me know if you know of any places that have cute resort wear right now.

This weekend was a busy one for me! I was able to get everyone on my list a gift, so Christmas shopping is officially done! Today I am planning to do a little shopping with my photographer and new friend Hannah! We are going to stop by a few of her favorite boutiques and I am so excited to see what they have to offer. I love online shopping at boutiques because of the unique and different products they offer so fingers crossed I find some goodies! For my outfit today, I bought this necklace over Black Friday and can not recommend it more! It is the perfect simple statement necklace. It not only will go with all your holiday looks but can easily dress up any look.

Today is a busy one for me. My to-do list is way too long and it has to get done today. I am headed out into this winter wonderland to tackle some Chrismas shopping which is very stressful to think about if I think about it too long. I never really shop instore these days so it's a bit of a struggle. The other thing is that I don't know what to get anyone this year because usually I either know or they have a wish list of what they want. I am hoping to get it all done today so I won't have to worry about it. Should I just get everyone a gift card? Haha, I won't but I am seriously thinking about it. Wish me luck!

How amazing are these pants! I bought them over black Friday and have worn them so much since. They seriously fit like they were made for me and they go with everything. I wore them to a class presentation, to work and to dinner! They are very versatile, and a pair that can be worn till Spring. I just bought my regular size 6 in them.

Today I am finally getting another cut and color for my hair. The only problem is we are getting a ton of snow this afternoon and I am worried about not being able to make it since she lives about an hour from me. Fingers crossed it works out because I need my hair done badly!

The One Accessory You Need + How To Style It

This post has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and Macy's. All opinions are mine alone. #WatchHowIStyle #CollectiveBias
With the holiday's right around the corner there is so much to do. Gift shopping, baking and attending holiday parties. When it comes to getting ready for a holiday party, it can be a little tricky to know what to wear. Should you go all out in bright red and a velvet skirt or keep it simple with navy and a patterned blouse. Either way, today I am sharing the one accessory you need and how to style it. 

Wanna know the one accessory you to need to create any stylish look? A watch! Watches are so elegant, no matter the occasion, it tells people that you have style. It is such a simple way to show off your personal style but also look put together and sophisticated. One of my favorite watches is from Anne Klein. It is a light pink ceramic bracelet with rose gold accents and a rectangular case. The watch is feminine and adds the perfect hint of pink to any look. It is going to be so easy for me to style it all year round. Anne Klein watches function as practical timepieces or pieces of jewelry perfect for staying on schedule while on trend. If you are stuck in a rut of what to get your moms, sister or friend for the holidays, a watch makes the perfect gift! Anne Klein is offering box sets from Macy's that feature a watch and bracelet combo that makes for beautiful arm candy and an easy affordable way to accessorize any wardrobe. Box sets are perfect for anyone who wants to take part in the current jewelry stacking trend but are unsure how to pair pieces or simply doesn't have the time to think about it. 

Wanna know how to style your new watch? I love pairing my watch with an outfit that matches but also like to keep it simple so my watch can be a statement piece on its own. The look I am wearing above is great for the office or for a casual holiday party. The blouse I am wearing has a little pink in it so it is the perfect combo. I am so excited about adding this watch to my collection because of how easy it will be to style all year rounds. In Spring, it will go with everything because of all the pastels I will be wearing. The nice thing about Anne Klein watches is they come in a variety of different shapes, sizes, colors, and materials. You can find something that fits your style so easily. You can shop my watch by clicking on the image below or by clicking here. The style number is AK/2952LPRG.

Like my watch? Click the image below to shop it! Just as a heads up it is currently on sale for under $100 at Macy's making it the perfect gift to give! 
Anne Klein watches can easily be found in Macy's in the watch section. Anne Klein has their own case (image below) so you can shop all the styles in on place. They also have their box sets sitting on the counter of the case! Happy shopping!
