Etsy Gift Guide

The holidays are my favorite time of year. I love it all. The lights, the cheesy music, time spent with family and friends, desserts, the red Starbucks cups, and holiday themed everything. I really could go on and on, but then I’d cut into my time watching the past Gossip Girl Christmas specials. So yes, you could add TV Christmas specials to my list of holiday favorites. No shame!

I always have so much fun picking out fun gifts for friends and family. If you’re stumped feel free to take a look at this etsy gift guide I’ve come up with. The great thing about getting gifts from etsy, is the likely hood they already have it is slim, and It’s always good to support the artists and small (often one man run) businesses out there. And everything on this gift guide is budget friendly, being under $50. In fact most is under $25. Hope you enjoy. I know that these are all thing I'd love to give or to receive.

Houses of the Holy

Outfit Details:
Cardigan- Grandmothers Closet
T-shirt- Target 
Leggings- Love Culture

Shot this near the downtown Seattle library the other day, with the fabulous KT ENG. First time I’ve shot with her, but had a great time & hope to do it again. You can check out her blog here.

The cross leggings immediately brought to mind “Houses of the Holy” by Led Zeppelin. They give off real rock n’ roll vibe. And when channeling rock n’ roll I always think it’s best to go with the classics. & speaking of classics, the cardigan was another inheritance from my grandmother, Loretta Mae. I’ve been getting a lot of use out of this cardigan lately; it seems to be a good twist on grunge looks. Which, by the way I have fallen head over heels in love with soft grunge. So expect to see a bit more of it here on the blog.

I’ve been working on a couple gift guides that will be up later this week, so stay tuned!

It's a Trap-eze

More often than not, it’s the simple things in life that bring me joy. Yesterday this rang true; I picked up a new nail polish and was ecstatic. I had seen a few reviews of the China Glaze: Cirque De Soleil collection, and was instantly attracted. This was due partly to my recent interest in nail art, and because I’ll admit I’m a sucker for just about any capsule collection. I was drawn to the shade “It’s A Trap-eze”. I have wanted a nail polish loaded with chunky glitter for quite some time, and I love the milky white base. My finger are looking as fly as the trapeze act. (I can’t help but be a little cheesy once in a while.)

*Note: I used two coats of the nail polish in the above photos.
