From our family to your we want to wish you a Merry Christmas! Remember Jesus is the reason for the season. Although the gifts are nice this is the time you spend with your family and friends. I am blessed to have such loyal readers and I wish you all the best on this day!

Independence Day is quickly approaching and I am sure that many of you will be hitting the beach, pools, or a family barbecue. This day is pretty low key for many people. It usually involves lots of sun (if the weather is cooperating) food, and drinks. Check out these options for a great outfit for the fourth of July!

Here is a curated collection of traditional red, white, and blue piece. You can show your true patriotic spirit without stars and stripes! I love a graphic print t-shirt and I’ve seen countless tops in stores like Forever 21 if you are looking to buy an expensive top. I’ve always wanted a pair of American Flag shorts, but the types that I have found are a little TOO short. I can’t expose the goods like that lol.

Christmas is eight days away many people are still out and about trying to purchase gifts for family and friends. Large gifts are great, but you can’t forget about the stocking stuffers! These little trinkets are great ways to show your appreciation for your loved ones. So check out these options below and what’s even better is that everything is under $25! Happy Shopping!

A few  weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the TJ Maxx and Marshalls Holiday Gift Giving event with personal shoppers Joe Lupo and Jesse Garza, the founders of the luxury lifestyle consulting firm Visual Therapy. The event consisted of various gifting tables with items for the entire family that can be purchased at TJ Maxx and Marshalls at a fraction of the cost.

I had an opportunity to speak one-on-one with Joe Lupo to get help on what to buy the person who has everything, what to buy for the men in your life, and also how to be the best gift giver this season. Take a look at some tips below from Joe Lupo and also some great gift ideas from TJ Maxx and Marshalls

What steps should I take when buying gifts for my family and friends? Start off with making a list of the people’s names. Then next to their names write their style type (trendy, classic, bohemian, etc.). Next, write a few words that describe their personality, and finally write down their interests. Now you have a starting point! You can look for gifts according to their style type, personality, or interests.

What to buy the person who has everything? Well generally this applies to most women, but there are some men who are hard to shop for as well. Joe Lupo suggests that you get this person some type of spa treatment. Both men and women can always use a great facial and massage, so purchase different treatments for them which will allow them to be pampered. This is better than buying another gift that they probably won’t use.

What do you buy the men in your life this holiday season? Joe suggests adding a pop of color to his wardrobe. Whether he is your father, brother, or significant other, a tie, sweater, or even scarf in a nice shade of blue. Joe also suggests buying the guys in your life some great linen. Buy some nice sheets with a high thread count and they will be sleeping like a baby.

What about presentation? Presentation is everything when it comes to holiday gift gifting. Put thought in to the wrapping of the gift because it says a lot as well. Add little touches of your personality or the personality of the person wig us receiving the gift. If they like nature, add little twigs to the presentation.

 TJ Maxx and Marshalls has all of your needs this holiday season. Whether you want to buy a gift for your home, your kids, or your mom, check out both stores even for the cutest little stocking stuffers for the entire family.
