Kelsey's FAV Things

Friday, November 20, 2015

Like Oprah, but me. Personally I think we see the same "Gift Guides", "Wishlists", "For the Hostess", etc. all over the blogosphere. Yawn, I'm bored. I'd prefer to hear what your favorite purchases of the year have been and what you're most excited to give this holiday. I put a few of my recent favorite things together and they just all happen to make excellent gifts as well. Deets on my fav things below!

BLANKET SCARF -- I love my ASOS blanket scarf so so so much. I have actually been out at a bar and was asked if I brought my blanket with me. LOL. The answer is yes, I did. If you don't own a blanket scarf please put it on your Christmas list. The ones on ASOS would make a perfect Secret Santa present They're all under $50, plus we all know that our offices are --20 degrees.

MIDI RINGS -- I was actually gifted my midi rings in my office Secret Santa last year. I became obsessed with them. They're so dainty yet still edge up your outfit. Maybe it's because not everyone wears them, but I seriously love these little rings. I do have a tendency to lose my midi rings when I'm out late at night (dancing hands flailing ya feel?)... so I recommend you shop some that are inexpensive. Browse lots of varieties here!

GRAY MALIN PRINT -- Oh Gray I love you. My print is hanging above my bed and I admire it everyday (I also pray every night that I hung it securely enough to not fall on my face). This is more of a splurge gift but I stand by the importance of finding art you love and beginning a collection to showcase. If a Gray Malin print is out of the budget you can always go for his phone cases, or like, omg hi, a sprinkle carry on cocktail kit.

SERIOUSLY DELISH COOKBOOK -- I'm a big supporter of all the blogging women who've turned their blogs into monetized creations. One of my favorite bloggers is Jess from How Sweet It Is. First of all she's hilarious and I want to be her friend, and second of all her recipes are amazing. My warm honey gorgonzola fig dip is thanks to her. Love to support any small biz initiatives and this cookbook reads just like her blog.

E&J NIRVANA HAND CREAM -- Shoot! Winter comes and my hands become in desperate need of hand cream every time I wash them (which is obsessively). I keep this at my desk and love love love it. I have the Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black rolley ball perfume but wanted to try out the White hand cream. Obsessed with the White. This is an amaz stocking stuffer.

POM POM KEY FOB -- If you haven't realized that the littlest things make me sooo happy then we must not be friends. Everytime I go in my purse for my keychain I could skip for joy. This little pom pom makes the most generic home necessity (keys, hello) the cutest accessory.

MZ WALLACE LARGE METRO TOTE -- This tote makes me feel like Mary Freaking Poppins. It's so amazing. It's literally huge inside, with endless pockets and compartments to store all your belongings & pompom keychains. You can seriously pack all your belongings for a weekend getaway in this one bag. I also bring it to work. It fits my laptop, shoes, lunch, blanket scarf, etc. I love it.

CLUB W -- I signed up for Club W because I got a discount off my first month (I'm such a sucker), but I do love it. You're sent 3 different bottles of wine each month to taste and learn about. We've turned into a fun roommate night where we cook and learn about each wine (the wines come with educational YouTube videos + informational cards). It makes you appreciate the wine you're drinking. Plus, my favorite documentary is Somm.
