I have had myself a little shopping spree... not really because at the moment I cannot spend from after the Holidays but it's always fun to window shop right? It's actually is very sad to window shop yet here I am always looking at clothes I cannot have but maybe you are in the market for some new items so I put together everything that is in my shopping bag at the moment. 

I LOVE H&M and I think they are honestly underrated. I feel like I went from a teen who's store was Forever 21 to now H&M being my go to retail store. They are 100% my ideal style and I think they have very well made products that last me a a while. 

So here is what is in my bag! All Items are shop-able under the "Shop" tab at the top of the page



 As far as skin care products, I have been watching a lot of Skincare by Hyram videos, if you have not seen any videos from him and you're trying to nail down your skincare game, check him out. He has been my source and guide to all things skincare for 2020 and we are continuing that into 2021. 


These are the products I am wanting to invest in this year and it's a lot so I may only be able to get a few but I have tried The Ordinary products and currently use them as part of my skincare routine and I love them and only want to get more but what is great, is that they are very well made and have the best ingredients in them and they are completely affordable!! For one serum you're looking at $6 sometimes $10 or a bit more or less! They are a great brand, as well as The Inkey List. They are great made skin care for a very affordable price as well but I have not personally tried products from this brand yet but very much want to. 

These other items on this list are a bit more pricey but from what I hear, are great products to invest in.

I've been having a little fun with taking pictures lately and it is really refreshing. It has been a long time since i've felt this much joy over taking and posting photos and that may sound weird to you if you're not a creative but as a creative I think we need to constantly feel inspired and express that inspiration in one form or another. For a while now I just have been feeling bored with social media and a little lack of joy as I just am not growing but recently I feel like I have joy again just taking photos that I like and posting them not caring about how well they are doing. It has been a while since I put any real effort into my social media and blog, youtube etc. but I am feeling inspired and want to put more effort into it not with the goal to grow and become "someone" but because I love it and it's fun for me to do! 

I have always loved Pinterest but lately I have been finding some images that have been the source of inspiration for me and I am loving sitting down at the end of my day and pinning some amazing images that are just filling my creative cup in a sense. 

l even though my posts aren't doing as well on social, I am having more fun and joy by just being creative and letting go! So hopefully more to come as I have rediscovered my love for being creative and desire to separate some more time towards working on my passions!

These are some of my favorite posts to do and I mean I've only written 4 blog posts between last year and now so clearly I just love doing these gift guides. I am very thankful for the Holiday season to be here as I am sure a lot of you are because we all know what year we have had and I don't know but something about the Holidays make it seem like... it's all okay now that Christmas is here. 

I wanted to keep this years guides really simple 1 because I just love simplicity and 2 I really don't have time to make a whole magazine of gift ideas but I think what I have gathered up this year are some really good practical and affordable gift options. We all love affordable right? 

As I write this I am currently listening to the 12 Days of Christmas by Bing Crosby so we are getting into that Christmas spirit! So maybe stop reading this momentarily so you can turn on some Christmas jams and really feel the season with me. 

David and I will not be going home with family for Christmas for the first time so instead we planned a nice secluded beach trip for him and I to really enjoy our time together and will celebrate before at home with our tree and our puppy... who is currently sleeping so cute on our couch right now and I wish you could see her. 

David and I don't go too expensive on gifts. This year is the most we have ever done and spent for Christmas with our trip and the few gifts we got for each other (that I included below and are we already using) but normally we try to keep Christmas pretty affordable and set a budget. So I included some low budget items in this guide too because we love affordable gifts! 

I also wrote an Instagram Christmas Gift Guide "Guide" on my favorite products and shops so check that out too! Click here to read!

You can shop all these products at the bottom of the page or on the Shop tab at the top of the page. Happy shopping!
