I probably online shop wayyyy too often, but I’ve learned some tips and tricks along the way. If you are a shopaholic like I am, this is the post for you! EMAIL FOLDER – have one just for online shopping so all the marketing emails won’t get lumped with your utility bills. This also prevents you from checking it as often because it’s not in your inbox.

Whether he’s your boyfriend, brother, best friend, dad, or husband, the men in your life deserve the very best this holiday season. I often find that it’s more difficult to shop for boys than for girls, but hopefully this gift guide will give you some inspiration. I’ve rounded up eight great gift options that any guy will love.

Happy Monday! I’m starting the week with a “what’s in my bag” post. I love seeing what other people have in their bags, so I thought I’d do a work edition one.

Sometimes I just want to stay home on the weekends and relax, but I don’t want to be Netflixing or YouTubing for the entire day. What to do what to do… Bake something! It’s the season for all baked goods – apple pie, pumpkin pie, gingerbread cookies, chocolate peppermint muffins, you name it! I made some mini apple pies last weekend and thought I’d share them today so you could possibly have a relaxing weekend evening – apple pie & chill. The recipe I used is from Laura in the Kitchen (I love watching her YouTube videos), but I used… View Post
