How to spend your Christmas Cash – prAna Ryley Crop pants #giftedprAna CODE CMTH17

Meet the Ryley Crop.
These are the pants that make leggings cry.

On the weekends when I’m not restricted by workplace dress codes and the need to look professional, I crave softness.  Comfort.  Flexible clothes that allow me to move.  On those days, even my favorite jeans feel too confining.  As I went through the Christmas boxes to wrap gifts, I found a surprise from prAna — the Ryley Crop in cargo green.  These are the pants that make leggings cry, people!

The Eternity Rose pink glazed 24k gold earrings

Disclosure: I received product samples for review. Opinions shared are mine.

When we moved, I wasn’t upset to leave behind our house on the hill.  I do miss our pink roses, though.  My husband planted a dozen pink rose bushes for me all around the pool area; the exquisite fragrance was heavenly!  I’ve always loved roses, so it makes sense that The Eternity Rose caught my attention. It’s the perfect addition to our Holiday Gift Guide.

You probably associate The Eternity Rose with beautiful gift items.  They’re especially well known for the 24k Gold-Dipped Rose, which is as extravagant as it sounds.  This company specializes in unique pieces of art made from genuine roses and rose petals.  These items make lovely, long lasting gifts for all occasions. Ideal for home decor, the long stem dipped roses make a wonderful conversation starter. Consider gifting one with the intention of making it an heirloom piece. [Read more…]

Love my prAna Rockaway Jacket + get 15% off with code CMTH17 #ad #giftedprAna

Disclosure: Lucky me!  prAna sent me a jacket to enjoy. Opinions shared are mine.

It snowed last weekend!  A glorious 4 inches of snow fell on our small town, which was the perfect amount for enjoying without being snowed in.  Though some of the snow has melted, the temperatures have been so cold that most of the melted snow turned to ice today.  I’m not a fan of bulky coats (no puffers for me, thank you very much) so I was grateful to have my prAna Rockaway Jacket to keep me snuggly warm.  When my kids wanted me to stay outside and watch them play, I was cozy as could be despite this jacket’s lightweight appearance.

Encouraging a collection can have its advantages.  It gives you a ready-made gift idea for each occasion.  It’s also fun to see how those collections become sentimental over the years.  As long as my kids played with their collectibles, I didn’t mind purchasing a few items for holidays and birthdays.  I saw it as a way to keep that childhood love alive.  Here are some fun collectible items that deserve a place under your tree this year.  [Read more…]

giftYou makes it easy to create and share holiday wish lists #ad

Disclosure: I was compensated for this post thanks to giftYou. Opinions shared are mine.

My husband and I are Tennessee transplants. He’s from Pennsylvania, and I’m from Kentucky.  Both of our families live in those areas, so we miss out on many family holiday events.  My mom desperately wants to please my children on birthdays and at Christmas, but it’s so difficult to explain what they really want.  She’s not into teen trends, nor does she know what types of games are currently being played at my house.  I’ve often thought that it would be so much easier if she could just go shopping with me so that I could point out what my kids are wishing for.  Thankfully, giftYou makes it simple to create a Christmas wish list and share it with anyone, anywhere.
