For the Mom that loves to Read

Amazon has some great picks for all readers. Screen Shot 2019-12-11 at 3.08.35 PM.png

If you know your mom, you can probably guess what her favorite book genre is. There are endless options when it comes to books, and Amazon can help narrow things down. I found the “Best books of the Month” on Amazon. They also have editors picks, celebrity picks and more.

If Mom likes to read she will love a book to curl up with and enjoy reading by the warm fireplace this winter.

To purchase from the “Best books of the month” list from Amazon, click here.

 

For the Mom that likes Make-up

Maskcara Beauty products are a great giftmediumtanYou can get your mom color-matched by a makeup artist through maskcara beauty. Or you can find some beauty lip and cheek colors, eyeshadows, bronzers and more for mom to wear.

 

Maskcara products offer free shipping on all products, and many of their items such as the lip and cheek and eyeshadows last longer than many that you will find in a regular make-up store.

Product prices range from $12-$40 on up. 

PS-Make sure to check out all their double-sided brushes, they are my personal favorite items.

Hopefully there is something on this list that your mom will love and enjoy. Or maybe it’s your wife? Whomever it may be, I hope you enjoy the spirit of Christmas and of giving. I always love thinking of something special and unique to give as a gift to someone I love. Even more, I love watching that special person unwrap the gift and see their reaction. One of my love languages is definitely “gift-giving” which makes this holiday season even better.

And at the end of the day…giving service is always a wonderful gift choice too. I know as a wife and mom, any type of service I receive from family members is a beautiful and well-thought out gift.

Until next time,

Creative Gift-Wrapping Ideas that You will Love for this Holiday Season.

One of my favorite things about Christmas is creating a “homey”, and special feeling in the home. I love to decorate for Christmas, and I am always looking for new ideas that can help our home feel extra special for Christmas.

I have had my eye on the many different ways that people wrap their Christmas presents.

Below I have a variety of different images spotlighting different gift-wrapping ideas. I found all of these ideas on Pinterest. How did we get creative before pinterest?

Some of the gift wrapping examples are simple, and some are a bit more complicated.

I have put together a list of what is trending right now in gift-wrapping:

1-A theme, whether it be colors, or tags, or ribbons, or words. Each present seems to have some sort of theme.

2-It is quite popular right now to add actual greenery to the presents, whether it be real or faux.

3. Many people are going for a more basic gift wrapping paper whether it be brown, white etc. 

4. Ribbon and tags or ornaments are the main focal point, keeping the rest of the gift simple.

 

*Some of my personal favorites: 

-The M&M’s bow

-The bright colored lights

-The hand written lettering

-Candy canes mixed with greenery

-The simple colored gift wraps with bells.

(*Hint if you are looking for some cute and unique gift tags, I have enjoyed everything I have seen at pebblesinc.blog)

What are YOUR favorite gift wrapping ideas?

My Favorite Fall Scent for under $20

This is a short post but important because this fall scent is amazing!

The fall candle from Bath & Body “Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin” tops the charts as my new favorite scent.

I love this fragrance because it’s not too overpowering, and yet it smells soo good.

I guess naturally it’s hard to explain a scent but I will tell you the 3-wick has been over $20 and it’s currently $14.50!

Go snag this wonderful scent today by clicking here.

I recommend a book, blanket, my hot cocoa recipe, and this candle for a wonderful fall night of relaxation!

I’ll be back tomorrow with something new.

See you soon,

My Favorite Fall Decor Ideas Inside and Outside of your home.

Day 2 of my Fall Pixx

One of my very favorite parts of fall is all the fun decor ideas. It’s amazing how simple little things can add such a fun, seasonal look to your home.

Fall Porch Decor Ideas:

One of my favorite blogs to follow for all things “decor” is tatertotsandjello.

Look at a sneak peak of her front porch:Screen Shot 2019-10-02 at 8.34.47 AM

Something else I love about her decorating tips is that she provides great instruction on how to make anything…and if you end up buying anything, you can use them year after year! And that pink door…I LOVE that touch!

Felt Garlands:

Felt garlands can add such a great touch to any mantle or room. The nice part is that you can go on etsy.com and find some felt garlands at a decent price (average $10.50)…or you can make your own! Screen Shot 2019-10-02 at 8.40.27 AM

You can buy a pack of felt balls for $2 or less, then you will just need some thin craft string, a large needle and some pliers to pull it through. Very simple and easy..takes less than 20 minutes!

Screen Shot 2019-10-02 at 10.40.34 AMI love the look of felt garlands and I have had a lot of fun making them on my own!

 

 

 

Some fun fall touches to your entry way table:

An entry way table can be simple for fall or it can be loaded with fall decor. This year I went all out!

Here are a few pictures of my entry way table this year:

What I love is adding some lighting. Especially in the evening, this small detailed autumn leaf lights add a focal point to the house.

I bought these cute little leaf lights at Kohls over two years ago. They still have them, click here.

$14.99 on sale or $9.59 with a Kohls card.

Another cute touch is adding a seasonal piece of artwork. I love supporting local artists in any way I can. I have fallen in love with the SavvyDru shop on etsy.com. This artist has such a entry way picturespretty and soft touch to her paintings. This is one of her art paintings I have it on display on my entry table.

The options are endless when it comes to fall decor ideas. I shared some of my favorites…now it’s your turn to share yours! Tell me all your tips and tricks I am always up for more decorating ideas:)

Hope you enjoyed my pixx for today.

See you tomorrow for more Fall Favorites!
