{Last Minute Gift Guide} The Techie

Today is the final day of my Last Minute Gift Guide, and I've made sure that they are the easiest items to pick up so close to Christmas.  Everything from today's guide can be purchased at Target.

1) The Nikon COOLPIX S01 10.1MP Digital Camera is super tiny, which makes it great for not only the novice photography, but also for the more experienced photographer who wants a camera they can throw in their bag to make sure they never miss a photo op.  
2) Apple In-Ear Headphones.  These came with the new iPhone, and they are SO much better then the old ones that used to make my ears hurt after an hour or so.  They would make a great gift for anyone with an older model iPod or iPhone.
3) Mobilexpressions Polka Dot Case.  This is the case that I have on my phone as I type this.  It is super cute, and it's super slim so it doesn't add extra bulk to your phone.  
4) I absolutely love this Crosley iDeco Universal iPod Doc.  It's not an eyesore like some of the other iPod speakers out there.  
5) Isotoner SmartTouch Glove.  It's so nice not having to take off your gloves to use your phone, and with emerald green being 2013's "it" color, they are stylish too!
6) The Mobilexpressions Chevron iPad Folio is super cute!  I actually have this too (someone bought themself too many Christmas presents this year), and I really like it.  It's not as fab as my Dodo case, but its like a third of the price so I can't complain.

Well that is it for my Last Minute Gift Guide.  I wish you all happy last minute shopping trips!

{Last Minute Gift Guide} The Fashionista

Madewell is the perfect place to pick up some fabulous items for The Fashionista in you life, and it has to be one of my all time favorite stores (I may have mentioned that before).

So let's get to the fabulous gift ideas...

1) Drifter Shades.  Every girl needs a great pair of sunglasses, and I just love the vintage vibe of these!
2) The Lovelock Clutch is a great classic bag that your Fashionista will be able to use for years to come.  
3) Bluestone Statement Necklace.  I saw this necklace in the store the other day, and it is crazy pretty! 
4) I love this Dotted Tux Shirt because it would look great with a pair of jeans, but it would also look great with a cute skirt or under a dress.  
5) The Frankie Pump.  The no white after Labor Day rule no longer applies.  This shoes would look awesome with a great pair of skinny jeans.  
6) Skinny Skinny Ankle Jean.  Speaking of skinny jeans, these are great.  Dark jeans like this are so versatile because you can dress them up or dress them down.

Only one more day of Last Minute Gift Ideas!  Are you all ready for Christmas yet?

{Last Minute Gift Guide} The Man

I don't know about the men in your life, but the men in mine are really hard to shop for.  Alas, you must try because they deserve fun gifts too, and so today's Last Minute Gift Guide is for The Man in your life.  Everything can be found at Urban Outfitters.

1) Maptote Boston Tee because most guys would prefer to just be lounging around in a comfy t-shirt.  
2) Fluid Big Ben Wood Watch.  A good watch is my husbands go to accessory, and this wood watch is  awesomely different!
3) Ray-Ban Folding Wayfarer.  I love that these sunglasses are both super stylish and convenient.  They can just fold them up and throw them in their pocket.   
4) Guitar Pick Punch.  Obviously this gift isn't for every guy, but any guy who's a guitar player is sure to like this awesome gift.  I couldn't even begin to count the amount of times I've watch my husband play with a quarter or a cut up credit card.
5) The North Face E-Tip Glove.  Practical and fun, now they can keep their fingers warm and still chuck those Angry Birds.  
6) Fred Perry Classic Overnight Bag.  Every guy should have a stylish overnight bag, and this one is stellar.  It reminds me of an awesome vintage bowling a good way of course!

Tomorrow I'll be back with a Last Minute Gift Guide for The Fashionista in your life.  I hope you all are having a great week so far!

{Last Minute Gift Guide} Beauty Obsessed

Today's Last Minute Gift Guide is for the Beauty Obsessed, and you can find everything at Sephora.

Now on to the list...

1) Tocca Profumo Veloce Florence.  Oh my goodness do I love Tocca perfume, and this set is perfect to throw in your purse or to take when you're traveling.
2) butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Macbeth.  Every beauty obsessed girl loves pretty nail polish, so it was a must to add to this list.  I love this peach coral color!
3) Clarisonic Mia2.  My Clarisonic is one of my top 5 must have beauty products.  I've been using it for about 10 months now and my skin has improved dramatically. 
4) Too Faced Better Than False Lashes.  You may remember me obsessing over this mascara a few months ago, and at $35 it's the perfect gift that she may not be buying herself.  
5) T3 Source Showerhead Filter.  We replaced our shower head this summer with one of these, and I love it.  Definitely helps with the frizz!

{Last Minute Gift Guide} The Hostess

My first Last Minute Gift Guide was carefully picked for The Hostess in your life.  This was a fun one for me to put together because oh my do I like to host.  I would be super excited to receive anything shown!  

There are obviously lots of places to buy gifts for the hostess on your list, but Anthropologie is such a great one stop shop for gifts that are a little more unique.  Here is the scoop on all the items.

1) The Stripes Abound Apron because every hostess needs a cute apron.
2) The Chipper & Sprite Serving Set, vintage meets modern with this cute serving set.
3) The Illume Mercury Dot Candle comes in 5 different scents/shades.  The spiced Amber is my fave.
4) How cute is this Peony Portrait Platter!  I love the hand drawn look of the pattern.  So pretty!
5) Color Pop Coffee Pot.  I have one of these, and I love it.  I wish that mine was this colorful!
6) The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook because a hostess can't host without good food!

Hopefully that will help you check the hostess of your list.  I'll be back tomorrow with another Last Minute Gift Guide!

{Holidays} Last Minute Gift Guide

I don't know about you guys, but this holiday season has really gotten away from me!  I usually plan ahead and I'm generally done Christmas shopping weeks in advance.  This year is a whole different story.  I basically just started last Friday....yikes!  Luckily, I've found out that procrastination seems to pay off.  There are way more deals out there the closer it gets to Christmas!

I thought this week I would try to help out all you last minute shoppers with some great gift ideas.  I will have a particular recipient in mind each day and all items will come from one store because if you a running short on time the fewer stops the better.

Check back tomorrow for my first batch of ideas!

{Lovely Pins} A Dash of Twinkle

One of my favorite things this time of year is seeing all of the twinkling lights, so I thought it would be the perfect theme for this week's Lovely Pins.  I know that this time of year is busy (it's been crazy for me) and it's hard to find time to do anything extra, but make sure you stop and take time to take in the twinkle.  It'll be next year before you know it!  

I hope you all have a great rest of the week!  I'll be back next week with some great last minute gift ideas for all of your loved ones!

{Lovely Pins} Emerald

Image Sources (clockwise from top left): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
Emerald green and I have a love hate relationship.  For some reason I wasn't particularly fond of it growing up, and even now most of the time it's not really my go to color.  That being said, the last few years during fall I've been loving all the jewel tones, and thus I've actually been starting to enjoy the lovely shade of green.  I'm actually currently obsessing over a green gown that I want to wear for New Years Eve.  

Don't forget to register for the Minted print I'm giving away!  In case you missed it you can go here for the details.  I hope you all had a fabulous week!
