I absolutely love buffalo check (or plaid) and especially love it for Christmas! I’m having an phone issue, so I can’t upload a picture of my front porch, but it is currently sporting a buffalo check be-ribboned wreath and welcome mat!
I started seeing it in Christmas decor last year and this year, it is EVERYWHERE! I rounded up some of my fave buffalo check home and Christmas decor below.
I have been trying to resist these buffalo check pillow covers since October! I think having the red and black all year long would make me get tired of it and I can’t justify buying them just for Christmas. I still love them though!!
Same story with this duvet cover. I have always wanted to have a Christmas bedroom and this would be perfect! but alas, the cost factor! It would make a really cute boys room too. Speaking of, I’ve seen some adorable buffalo check nurseries lately!
Do you love buffalo check like I do? What do you have in your home that’s buffalo check? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
Sorry for my prolonged absence from the blog, but I’ve had a ridiculous amount of stuff going on in my life the past few months. I hope to have some more time in the near future to blog, but most likely I won’t be back to regular blogging until November. I appreciate each and everyone of you that has been checking in over the past couple months to see any updates! I promise, more to come on what’s been going on in the future! (Some BIG things)
In the meantime, it’s pumpkin spice season and I can’t let it pass without blogging about it! I broke out my Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice tshirt last week while enjoying my fifth pumpkin spice Starbucks of the season and realized when someone asked me where I got it, that the company who made mine went out of business. 🙁
I decided to check out Etsy to see if anyone else sold a similar one and found an amazing amount of PS inspired stuff. There are tons of tees, but I also found a lot of other stuff. I thought I would put together a quick round up of my faves for everyone.
Do you have any makeup addicts on your list this year, but you don’t want to add to their stash? It can be hard to know what they already have! If this is your situation, then this is the list for you!
This mug made me actually laugh out loud. The perfect gift for your eyebrow chick! Find it here.
The perfect addition to your makeup loving friend’s apartment. This lipstick throw pillow is adorable! Buy it here.
This little thing is highly coveted in the makeup world. It’s a silicon makeup applicator from Molly Cosmetics called the SiliSponge. If you score one of these, you are definitely going to be the hero of Christmas (FYI-they are majorly back ordered). It’s the newest foundation applicator out there and is reported to be better than the beauty blender. It doesn’t waste makeup, allows you to see your face while you use it and can be cleaned with soap and water. Find info on how to order it here.
I don’t know what rock I was living under, but I missed when this makeup brush cleaning machine launched. It’s basically a dishwasher for your brushes. It’s not like cleaning your brushes is that difficult, it’s just something you tend to forget to do. Find it on Amazon here.
Oval makeup brushes are all the rage on the makeup blogs, so get your makeup addict in on the action! These are mid-priced brushes, but you can find prices all over the board, so check out the choices. I do not own these particular brushes, but they have pretty decent reviews. Find them here.
You can never have too many makeup bags with cute sayings and the internet is full of them! Find this one here.
They may not sleep with their makeup on, but they will sleep on their makeup with these adorable lash pillowcases! Buy them here.
How perfect is this lipstick ornament? Someone more talented than I could DIY this, but if like me, you aren’t artistic, you can buy one from the Glam Studio Shop on Etsy here.
There are tons of funny makeup oriented tshirts out there at all price points. This one definitely applies to me and nude lipsticks! Get it here.
I wouldn’t be sad to find any of these under my own tree! Which one is your fave? I’d love to hear in the comments!
I think (fingers crossed!) I am finally done with my Christmas shopping. I need to go through my purchases to make sure I didn’t forget anyone, but other than a few things I am waiting on delivery of, I should be good. If you are done too, congrats! And if you aren’t, I am thinking you might have just a few more difficult people to buy for left on your list. I wasn’t going to do gift guides this year, but I thought a few geared toward very specific types might be helpful. If you are like me, you save those hard to buy for people for last, because you are still searching for something good to buy them.
I’m starting with the girly girl, your bff, your sister, maybe you. They are sometimes hard to buy for, because they already have everything! I know people say that about me sometimes. I, of course, always have a list at the ready, so I thought I would share some of the things on it with you.
Angel Wings Scarf
This scarf is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a long time. Does your person love taking Instagram photos? Are they dramatic? Do they just love pretty things? If those are all yeses, then I think this is the gift for them! It comes in other colors, but I love the black and white. I found it on Etsy from seller Shovava.
Are they the queen of messy buns? The bun cuff was released by Chloe and Isabel last year and ups your bun game with style. It can be worn as a bracelet or as a hair accessory. It’s really easy to use and it comes in many different finishes. Rose Gold and Gold are my faves. I am starting to see knock-offs of the original, so you know it’s a certified “thing” once that starts! You can find the Chloe and Isabel version here.
I’ve seen tassel earrings in a couple different stores this year, but my faves are from Bauble Bar. They come in a million colors and you can buy the super long ones or mini’s. Someone on my list may or may not be getting a set of these this year! You can buy them at Nordstrom or at Baublebar.com. In general, you can’t go wrong with Bauble Bar. I love so many things on their site this year! They are currently having a sale on their monogram items which are super cute. Find the mini’s here.
Silk Sleep Pillowcase
Girly girls are always working on keeping those wrinkles at bay and what better way to do it than with a silk pillowcase? Super luxe and something she probably wouldn’t buy for herself. Find it at Nordstrom here.
It’s hard to look girly when you are freezing, but this hat from Kate Spade manages to fit the bill! Comes in a couple colors, but I love the pink! Find it at Kate Spade here.
Rebecca Minkoff Isobel Tassel Hobo
This bag is gorgeous! I love Rebecca Minkoff bags in general and own a Regan. The leather the brand uses is super luxe and this bag is really ready for anything. You can wear it to work or casual. It comes in a couple different colors. Find it at Nordstrom here.
Kate Spade Glitter Shoe Keychain
So, no Girly Girl Gift Guide would be complete without shoes on it! I would think it would be awkward to buy shoes for a friend, so this is the next best thing! Find it at Kate Spade here.
Which of these do you want to find under your tree? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
By far, my most pinned photo on Pinterest is a Gilmore Girls sweatshirt. Unfortunately, it isn’t available via my original source, so I thought I would look for something similar. This led me to a plethora of Gilmore Girls stuff for sale on Etsy. Any of these would make amazing gifts for yourself or your Gilmore Girls obsessed friend! And if they haven’t watched the show yet, pair one of these with some DVDs! Now on to my faves!
Are you struggling finding the perfect gift for your mom, sister, daughter or best friend? Maybe even yourself? If so, I have the picks for you! I’ve gathered up the best gifts for her today! I could do ten of these lists to be honest there are so many good deals out there, but I thought I’d go with things I either have or would buy for myself! To shop, click on the pink link under each photo.
I have this scarf and I love it! It is super soft and gorgeous in person. The tassels make it I think! I got it on super sale, and Talbot’s has had at least 40% off pretty consistently this season. It’s Christmasy but I think you can still wear it after too. I wore it with a chambray shirt but it would look great with a red coat too.
The perfect gift for your leopard loving friend. Starbucks always has great mugs at Christmas time and I was torn between featuring this one or the blue plaid. This leopard one won out because it would look just as great on your desk as a pencil holder as it would holding your morning drink!
This set of OPI Mini All Star nail polishes is just that, a collection of the best OPI colors! Amazing favorites like Bubble Bath, Strawberry Margarita, Lincoln Park After Dark, Big Apple Red and Malaga Wine. All colors I own and love and in some cases talk about endlessly! Seriously a great gift!
Makeup can be hard to buy for others sometimes, but this cult fave Dior Addict Lip Glow makes it easy since it reacts with the wearers chemistry to create a unique color. Any makeup lover would love to receive this gift!
I’ve loved these gold glitter studs from Kate Spade for awhile and even had them on my best gifts for her list last year. I still love them and now actually own them myself. They are just enough glitter when you need a little! I may have stocked up on them the last time Kate Spade had a sale, so don’t be surprised if you get a set of these under the tree from me!
Another super cute idea, this nail polish holder comes in two sizes, one for travel and one for storage of your polish collection. They can accommodate any size polish bottles and are a great solution!
I talk about the Kendra Scott Rayne necklace all the time and finally bought my first one, hot pink and gold metal, this summer. I wore it pretty much everyday and asked for a black and gold metal one for Christmas. Pretty sure I will be wearing that one daily too. Nordstrom had the best pricing this season that I have seen on the necklace due to their price matching, but it pays to shop around a bit when you decide to purchase. There are so many colors and metal combinations, that you can be sure to find something for your gift recipient.
