Gift Guide: The Boys

Everyone always complains that girls are impossible to shop for. They're picky, they have expensive taste...the list goes on and on. But HELLO! Have any of those people tried shopping for a man?!

Dads, brothers, husbands, and's the same situation every time. They're the last ones left on the list and you sit there for hours trying to think of what they could possibly want, need, or even remotely like. (cue the crickets)

Well your prayers have been answered. Take a look below at some options for the men in your life!

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11

Want to know the irony of the guys' list? Overall, it is more expensive than the items on the beauty guru and fashionista guides! And they say girls are expensive...pshhh

What's your go-to gift for the men in your life? Guys -- what are you wishing for this year?

Gift Guide: The Fashionista

There's a week until Christmas and all through the house, not a gift could be found, not even for your spouse!

Are you one of those last minute shoppers? Thinking you have all the time in the world to shop before Christmas arrives, and then BOOM. It's Christmas Eve and you still have the majority of your list to complete.

With a week before the big day there's still hope! Over the next few days, I will be providing you with some last minute gift guides for those special people in your life.

First up? The fashionista!

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13

We all have that one person in our lives that is all about the latest trends out on the runway. This tends to make them hard to shop for -- picky and expensive taste. Luckily all of these items are basic favorites of all the fashionistas out there. Plus, with the exception of the Daniel Wellington watch, they're all under $100! How could you go wrong?

What are some of your fashion picks for the holiday season?

Mamma Mia!

Last night I had the wonderful pleasure of attending another one of Inglot Cosmetics' events in New York City! Just like the last one, this event was so much fun and I'm so grateful I was able to join.

Similar to The Lion King event, Mamma Mia and Inglot worked together to create a set of vibrant collections. From the hot pink eye shadows to the bright blue lipstick (which smelled amazing by the way), make up lovers can run wild with these palettes! Though they may not fit into my every day routine, these colors are surely something I would love to play around with.

With a variety of bright colors, these palettes made me think of warmer weather -- which is certainly a nice change from what we've been experiencing recently.

While at the Inglot studio, I was able to meet some of the show's cast including the lovely actress who plays Sophie. They were all so sweet and beautiful and looked amazing in the Gimme Gimme Glitter collection!

Mamma Mia's Sophie on the left!

Glad my mom was able to join me this time!
Everyone enjoying the event!

Thank you again to Inglot Cosmetics and Mamma Mia for hosting such a great event! I look forward to seeing the show this season!

We'll Always Have Paris - Part 2

The last bunch of photos from Paris is a mixture from a handful of days. This selection is a little more focused on the actual photography aspect of the trip.


More moments from our trip to Versailles.

Sometimes nature produces the most spectacular things.

I thought this was one of the cutest things I'd ever seen. A sweet, little old woman was relaxing on a bench by herself with an umbrella. It was too adorable to not capture!

Get ready for a little story time...

Casually roaming the fields in Versailles...

When I spot a swan...

Who then proceeds to attack me...

And then my mom came in and saved me with her map!

My cousin, Roberto, joined my parents and I in Paris!

Admiring The Louvre.

Typical Kohler selfie.

Finally! The Eiffel Tower!!

Just hangin'.

We were terrified as we stood on this glass and looked down at all the tiny people under the tower!

My adorable parents <3

A brief pitstop at the Catacombs.

And finally, my favorite... The Eiffel Tower at night!

Skirt: Cotton On | Shirt: Forever 21 (old, similar, similar, similar) | Necklace: J.Crew (on sale!) | Lipstick: Mac Ruby Woo

I've waited my whole life for this moment :)


Paris was everything and more than I could have ever imagined. I already want to plan my next trip! Unlike where I'm from (particularly in NYC), life seemed so lax and easy going. You actually had time to stop and take a moment to appreciate life. Whereas over here everyone seems in a rush to get onto the next thing without even enjoying the present. Being able to sit down at a cafe and enjoy a cappuccino or a glass of wine was such a delight! 

What's your favorite thing to do when you travel?

Paris Is Always A Good Idea - Part 1

It's finally here! A brief look into my trip to Paris (Switzerland coming up next). It took me forever and a day to sort through the thousands of pictures I took in order to get it down to a reasonable number to post -- and I still had to break this into 2 parts.

Paris was absolutely amazing. My family and I spent a whole week there which really allowed us to experience the city. I was told that most people spend at most 3 days in Paris just hopping from one tourist site to the next. By taking a whole week to "live" in this beautiful city, we were able to get a true sense of its spirit.

Needless to say, I fell in love. Take a look!

Iron work balconies & a view of the Eiffel Tower -- Could it get any better?

I became obsessed with French architecture. The US could use more of this :)

My parents at Sacre Coeur.

I spy a little blogger laying in a perfect reading spot.

Paris truly is filled with love! Casually passed a bride & groom on their wedding day.

My mom loved these little fruit stands.

The Louvre.

View from a boat tour.

82.1 tons of love.

Totally creeped on Parisians & their fashion every day. They make even the simplest things look chic!

Ballet flats & a Vespa. I can dig that.

Arc de Triomphe.

Notre Dame.

Luxembourg Gardens.

We found a market that had the cutest things! Love these distressed furniture pieces.

Unique way of displaying jewelry.

While in Paris, I kind of became Queen.

Papa K & I in the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles. 

Casual Kohler selfie.

Exploring the Parisian streets.

"I touched the butt!" - Nemo

Thinkin' hard.

Step in photographer for other couples.

So in love with this beautiful city. I can't wait to go back one day!

Where have you vacationed to recently? Where are you dying to go?!

Stay tuned for Part 2 of my time in Paris!
