The Holiday Shopping Guide

Shopping for friends and family during the holiday season can be very stressful, especially if you have a big family like mine. Not only is my family quite large, but my husband’s family is even bigger than mine, which means a lot of presents to buy before December 25th. As much as I enjoy watching family and friends’ open presents that they love, I hate fighting the crowds to find the perfect gifts. Thank goodness I am a millennial and I know how to find all the perfect presents online!

I love online shopping! You don’t have to get dressed or wear makeup, you don’t have to wait in line and deal with all the crazy shoppers, you can sit at home in your pajamas and pick out every single gift that will be delivered to your door. It is fantastic! I have made a list of some great items to purchase for your family and friends. You don’t have to do any work because I have already done that for you. So sit back on your comfy couch and get to shopping!

  1. A Keurig Coffee Machine….because you cannot go wrong with coffee!
  2. An Insta Pot. This little gadget is amazing. It’s like a crock pot but better!
  3. The iRobot. You can’t go wrong with this. Who likes vacuuming? No one! This little guy will do all the work for you.
  4. CC Beanie. For those cold winters days where you don’t want to fix your hair.
  5. Organic Bamboo Washcloths. These are the best washcloths I have ever owned. They are so soft! I use them to wash my face but they are perfect for guest towels or washing your little one.
  6. Conair Pro Ceramic Curling Iron. This baby is the best curling iron. You can control the temperature and the ceramic keeps from damaging your hair. A personal fave!
  7. Acure Captivating Coconut Body Oil. I love any Acure product. It is an all natural skin care line that is affordable and this body oil is one of my favorites. It smells so good!
  8. A Three Piece Luggage Set for the traveler.
  9. The perfect wireless ear buds. You can’t go wrong with Apple. Ideal for a good workout!
  10. The instant picture camera that does not disappoint.
  11. Amazon Echo. For the electronic lover in your life.
  12. 18 Piece Grill Set. The men in my life sure do love to grill. This is the perfect affordable gift.
  13. Body Grooming Kit. You’ve got to make sure your man is clean cut! This is the way to do it.
  14. For the fur baby in your life! I have this brand of collar for my fur baby and I love it. It is priced well and made with durable fabric.
  15. Another great gift for the fur baby. The Beco Bone. This is the best bone. My fur baby loves it. It is eco friendly and durable. Perfect for a teething pup!
  16. For the chef in your life, the Phillips Air Fryer is the best gift. I got this for Christmas last year and it is wonderful. It cooks the food so crispy and fast!
  17. When I travel, organization is key. These packing organizers are perfect for keeping your luggage neat.18. For the fitness guru. I have these resistance bands and use them all the time at home. They are great! 19. The new and improved Apple Watch! Need I say more?20. My husband and I both have several S’well bottles and use them daily. It is the best water bottle I have ever owned!21. The softest blanket! Everyone needs a good throw for their couch. You can pick the color and size. 22. For the competitive family, this game set is a no brainer!23.  The best blender you will ever own! I got my Vitamix for Christmas last year and it is fantastic. I will never buy another blender brand again. 24.  A Yeti cooler is the way to go. Our family uses one for every beach trip! 25. This mat is not just for yoga and pilates.

  • One of my favorite things for breakfast is quiche. They are so easy to make & its the best to grab real quick on a busy work day. This is a great way to stay on track for breakfast! Plus, it has just the right amount of veggies, protein, & healthy fat, without the dairy & gluten of course!
So head on over to the blog & check out my new quiche recipe! Website link in my bio ✌🏻#quiche #healthybreakfast #healthylifestyle
  • Even though it’s 40 degrees in NC, I have been craving iced lattes like crazy lately! If you are looking for an amazing latte, @thefactorycoffeehouse makes the best ones! I get mine with coconut milk & a dash of honey because #nodairyforme 🚫🥛 #icedlatte #espresso
  • Is your pantry full of healthy foods that help you thrive? Or is it filled with foods that leave you feeling terrible? Today on the blog I am discussing a list of items I always keep in my pantry to keep me eating healthy. So head over to the blog & check out the list!

  • Poke bowl & sushi for lunch. I make poke bowls almost weekly at home but this was my first ordering one at a restaurant. It was delicious! #poke #sushi #sundaylunch
  • I  hope everyone is having a great Christmas so far! I couldn’t resist a few more photos with my fur baby ♥️ #goldendoodle #furmom #furbaby

  • Lucia’s first Christmas so we had to do all the things 🐾 #christmaseve #goldendoodle #furparents
  • I cannot believe I now feel comfortable enough to wear an outfit like this in public. When I gained 30 pounds during my college years, I was so self conscious about my body. After lots of hard work & learning how to eat real food instead joining the “dieting” band wagon, I lost the weight and then some. 🥑
The skirt I am wearing is a size 2. I couldn’t believe it fit when I tried it on to buy it! I cannot remember when I was ever a size 2 before. And it’s not just about the number but I feel so much more comfortable in my body. I feel in tune with my body & I’m aware of what foods make me thrive. 🧘🏼‍♀️
It’s been a long time coming but because of my journey, I want to be able to help people reach their goals as well. So I am excited to announce that I am now a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH!! 🙌🏻
