Seamless Print Styling: Camo, Snakeskin, Stripes & Leopard

Ponce City Market

Hello! While on an Alaskan adventure of a lifetime with my sister, I had the opportunity to meet Nicole at High Latitude Style! After meeting the unassuming, stylish and sweet Nicole, I've continued to follow along with her blog, appreciating her insightful tips in fashion. I wish we could meet in Alaska again, but for today I'll content myself with the privilege to cohost her weekly link up, Top of the World Style!

Nicole does not fit in a fashion box, boldly mixing prints and colors even before it became trendy to do so! For that reason, I thought I'd feature as many print mixes in my outfit as possible! I hope you will join us in linking up! :)

Cotton Embroidery Dress, Styled Two Ways

Hello! Did you score some amazing deals on Friday through Monday? I grabbed as much as I could for the boys and kept myself in check on clothes, etc. This week I also shared another Gift Guide round up to help you fill those stockings for the ladies. There's one more round up coming next week, so be on the look out for "Guys & Games"! As for today I'm sharing this embroidery dress, styled two ways for the Style Six Link Up! 

Another masterpiece, crafted by Caite & Kyla, features a stretchy cotton that feels soft on my skin, I wear this baby all day long. I lay on my couch in it. I run errands it, dress it up for a date in it, etc! This dress is all versatile with many ways to style, but let's start with two different but subtle looks, geared toward boho casual!

Gift Guide: Beauty For The Stockings & Gifts For The Planner

Hello! Wouldn't you know my entire post was lost into cyber space. Each painstaking word swiped away with the click of the refresh! Has this ever happened to you? I've had parts disappear but never a whole post. Well, perhaps an abbreviated version is better anyway, right?? So with less flourish, but just as much goodies, I give you inspiration for stocking stuffers or basket fillers as well as favorites for the organizer!

Let's start with My favorite Beauty Items!

1. Dearly Detangled Conditioner - gifted to me but just as loved, I use this leave-in conditioner when my hair is especially dry. I love it for getting out those tangles!
2. Wild Rose Vit C Serum - also gifted to me, this might be my favorite serum ever!! It smells wonderful, but more than that, I've already noticed brightening and diminishing! Korres is selling this in gift sets at $56, which is the perfect time to try it!

3. Wet Brush - The last two salons I visited used these brushes and all my mom of girls friends swear by them. My boys have the small size. I think it's time for momma to have one. Why not ones with bears in cozy sweaters?
4. Native Deodorant - Ironically I was introduced to this deodorant in my Christmas stocking one year. It's a natural deodorant that smells wonderful and actually works!

5. Ahava Lotions - a friend brought this back from Israel and I love the way my hands feel when I use it. These are now a purse staple.

6. Burt's Bees Lipstick - continuing with our more natural vibes, this lipstick is free of yucky chemicals, pleasant smelling and moisturizing. It's worth having to reapply in my opinion. ;)

7. The Caripro Toothbrush - I reviewed this back in June and still use this it. In fact, yesterday my middle child requested one for Christmas. Today is the day, right?? This brush 5 settings, a two minute timer with 30 second increment pauses to remind you to move to another area and long battery life. I don't bring the charger with me on trips!
8.Tinkle Razor - these have been around the blogger block but in case you need reminding, these are an easy way to get rid of unsightly hairs. However, don't get a knock off brand. They just aren't the same!

9. Whitening Systems or REFILLS!: We can't leave out the whitening system my husband reviewed over the summer. I still notice the difference in his teeth! For that reason I'm using the gifted whitening gels for his stocking. ;)
For The Planner - Cultivate What Matters Shop is having their biggest sale of the year! 20% off everything, but the goal planners. HOWEVER, you can grab a bundle with a planner included for the 20% off! Here's a list of my favorites, as well as a couple extra goodies to compliment a more organized life!

1. Legacy Journals - linen, lovely and perfect for note taking or journaling daily thoughts!

2. Tending Tape - I love this for taping in important notes, worksheets or just making my calendar pretty.
3. Power Sheets Starter Bundle - That fab planner, stickers, pouch and goal card display set
4. Magnetic Page Markers - I mean, why not?? How handy are these?
5. Cultivate Power Sheets - just the fab planner!

6. Goal Sticker Book - my handwriting is so sloppy, but these stickers make me feel better about myself. Ha - but seriously, it also helps me remember as well as anticipate upcoming dates.
7. Sudio Tolv Earbuds - Man, these are pretty and they work fantastically. My eldest keeps borrowing mine so I may get him a green pair while they are 25% off!

8. Accessory Pouch - I store all my pens, tending tape, highlighters etc in this pouch!
9. Lands End Canvas Tote - I store ALL these goodies in this fabulous tote! A sweet friend gifted this bag over a year ago and I run all over town and country with this bag. It also fits my computer. LOVE IT!

Alright, did you catch my Gift Guide for the Gym Rat and Miscellaneous Items for Around the Kitchen? Happy Shopping my friends!
