Gift Guide: For Her (and for her 40th)


Well, it looks like I only post here once a year now. But it's always good to look back and see what was wished for. And my birthday falls the day after Christmas, so it serves as double duty around here!

Here is what is on my wishlist this year:

Designer Purse: I'm mad I didn't do more research prior to our Italy trip this fall, but I love the idea of a special purse for a milestone birthday. There a lots of great options out there, but I do love this Gucci option to commemorate our Italian trip.

Necklace: I've been targeted on Instagram for this jewelry designer- and I do love the mixed metal and different layering necklaces.

The Art of Home Book: I love Mcgee & Co's design aesthetic and I'm sure this makes for a gorgeous coffee table book too.

Jones Road Holiday Kit: I was recently turned on to this clean beauty brand, and it's by Bobbi Brown, which is very cool. I recently was turned on to her miracle balm which I'm very excited to try, and this kit includes.

lululemon cropped vest: The irony of this vest, is that it was absolutely sold out everywhere last year and now it's back and I still it for our colder weather.

Beanie: A cool beanie in a cool color.

Hourglass Blending Brush: A jack of all trades brush to add to your arsenal.

Happy Shopping!

Gift Guide: For Her


AKA: A very neutral gift guide!

Bath Robe: Love the checkered pattern on my tried and true, all-time favorite bath robe brand!

Lipstick + Lip Liner Duo: I don't wear lipstick often, but I hear this is the shade (nude pink) to try if you're dipping your toe in to try.

Leggings: In the seasonal color, clove brown heather. These are the softest leggings and perfect for either lounging or working out.

Hiking Boots: Size 6.5. I've heard the best things about these boots and could use a pair for all the adventures I hope to continue in the new year!

Earrings: The prettiest earrings--dainty, and yet different!

Bucket Hat: I love bucket hats in the summer--and would love to keep the trend going this winter!

Gift Guide: For the Boys


  Stance Socks: Boys run through socks like none other, so it seems silly to buy nice socks, but they are well-made and stand up to wear and tear! Plus, they're perfect for the ski slopes.

Macho Sunglasses: How fun are these? The boys cousin got a pair in Hawaii and now they want a pair too! ;)

Flipside Game: Both boys have recently become obsessed with Rubik's Cube, so this looks like a fun twist on that game.

Virtual Reality Headset: Continues to be their top wishlist item!

Leather Lounger: As the boys, particularly Ethan, enter their "tween year" I envision lots of hang out time in their rooms with friends. These lounger chairs look like something they can grow up with.

Light-Up Baseball: For the baseball fan!

SF Giants Sweatshirt: Our boys love the SF Giants--so we're constantly adding apparel to their wardrobe to show their team pride!

Gift Guide: Mother's Day

 Mother's Day is almost two weeks away (!!) so I wanted to pull together a couple ideas. These are all things I either have tried or are on my personal wishlist!

Paperclip Necklace: I have one and would love to add a second for layering. For the local ladies, Malena's Boutique carries this designer. 

Clare V. Messenger Bag: I've had my eye on this handbag for a bit--it would make a great spring + summer bag! Psssst...don't forget to enter promo code: LALA22 at checkout to save 25%!

Summer Fridays Face Oil: Like heaven in a bottle and excellent for all skin types!

Stemless Champagne Glasses: Riedels always make sipping wine or champagne a bit more enjoyable.

Beaded Bracelet: A fun + whimsical addition for these warmer months.

Kindle Paperwhite: My husband and I have dedicated Mondays and Wednesday nights to reading ever since getting back from vacation. Using an e-reader seems more practical so I'm debating buying one!

Ugg Slippers: A slipper refresh will always be appreciated. And...if you're looking for a good knock-off, try these or these mini Uggs!

Trio Perfume Set: Mojave Ghost is my absolute favorite scent by Byredo, but the price tag can be a bit high. I love the idea of trying a set before committing to the full bottle.
