ModCloth's 2014 Holiday Gift Guide

**This post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

It's sooo crazy to think that it's THAT time of year again! I'm so excited for Christmas like usual... but this year, I'm excited earlier than usual! Has anyone noticed that everyone isn't acknowledging Thanksgiving and jumping straight to Christmas?? I don't mind because it's getting me in the "gift-looking" mood haha!

Recently, I've been browsing the ModCloth site and discovered that I literally love everything they sell. So when I saw the opportunity to share their 2014 Holiday Gift Guide, I knew I had to share. Their gift guide is super helpful and they have adorable things for lots of different styles(Men and Women) and different price points as well! I just wanted to share a few things from their gift guides that I think are such cute gifts! Check them out below and remember to browse through their 2014 Holiday Gift Guide.

Sea-son to Snuggle USB Foot Warmers $34.99 - I'm so in love with these. Firstly, they're too freaking adorable! Secondly, if you know anyone who spends time on the computer or just like to "veg" during winter- these are seriously perfect.

It Was Shawl a Dream in Taupe $34.99 - This is such a cozy gift for any lady. I think this makes a nice gift if you're not quite sure what styles she is into; any girl would love a warm cozy outwear piece to wear during winter and into the cold month of spring!

Get Your Gleam on Shoe Polishing Kit $27.99 - Perfect for any guy to keep his shoes lookin' spiffy. I love the old-fashioned charm of a guy shining his shoes haha!

#HashtagADay Journal $9.99 - And for that friend that uses way too many hashtags on social media... Challenge them to use this journal! Such a cute and quirky gift, I love it!

It was so hard to pick just a few to show you guys and in reality there's hundreds more that I want to show you but you can just scurry on over to ModCloth and check out their Gift Guide for gift ideas for family, friends, and maybe yourself. Haha I won't tell! ;) (Seriously, I'm so tempted to do that myself!)

Bedroom Makeover Inspiration

I've been so inspired by the Pinterest home & decor section recently! I mean... I pretty much always have decor mood swings and always want to change stuff in my room. So if anything, I blame Pinterest for forcing me to change my room so often haha! Lately I've been digging the white simple look.
I'm currently in the process of trying to install (aka make my dad install) a hanging clothes rack like in photo 1. I love to put my favorite/most recent clothing items on display like works of art! I'm also going to be taking bits and pieces of inspiration from many of these like the greenery, wood furniture, slightly vintage vibe and mirror accents! Maybe when I'm completely satisfied I will share my room with you all!  I also want to add elements of oceany-greenish-deep-blueish colors and also have a contrast of black and white typeface art works. Ah seriously may be my last time redecorating if I can get everything right!

Let me know which one is your favorite!!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

eShakti OOTD

Sooo this post is super-duper-omg-wow-overdue. I was contacted a while ago by eShakti to check out their site and pick something to review. I was so excited and soo in love with all their styles. I picked my top and received it in the mail. Now I've tried numerous times to document an outfit wearing this top but my need for it to be perfect and combined with a lack of posts, resulted in this very long overdue outfit of the day! haha! Forgive me!!

BUT, here I am showing it to you all now! Let me just tell you a little bit about eShakti...
They have the most beautiful silhouettes- in literally every size: xs-6x!! I absolutely love how you can get your clothing item to fit you specifically. For example, you pick your standard size, then you add your height- so it fits YOU. They also give you the option to add custom styling for an additional charge, like making a shirt with longer sleeves, extending a hem line etc. I would highly recommend them for this alone! It's such a cool idea that I've never seen anywhere else.

Now for my shirt, I adore it! The blouse is made of really nice cotton material and very well made as well. It has the most feminine silhouette and fits my torso perfectly (I am about 5'7" and have a long torso so this is often a struggle for me). I've styled it numerous ways, dressed up with a pretty skirt, with a pair of capri slacks. And even dressed it down like today by styling it with some jeans to run some errands.

This specific shirt is no longer available*I don't think, but nonetheless, I think it's an outstanding example of how adorable their clothes are and how awesome their customizable sizing is. I seriously love it!
Here are a few other pieces from their site, that ARE in fact available! Check them out!! (Names are clickable)

Notched V-Neck Floral Print Top

Melange Knit Peplum Moto Jacket

Winter Rose Tweed Skirt

Don't forget to check them out and browse the site!! While I was browsing the site I noticed they have a $30 coupon if you register on their site!

The Creative Weekly

Hi again everyone! Recently, I've gotten more in touch with my creative side and taken the time to attempt new things when it comes to my art. This has been a period of firsts for me! My first time doing shading, detail work, typography type stuff and tonight was my first time drawing in a traditional style using dot shading. I'm really excited about all this new stuff I've been trying out and I hope to continue trying new things. Check out my work lately below!!

I was thinking of starting some sort of link-up eventually. Something that encourages people to do something creative or artistic. Often times we get too busy to enjoy our creative sides and I'd love to do a weekly thing where everyone links up here and shares their weekly creative things. Possibly something called the Creative Weekly? 
Either way, I think I, myself, will continue with this Creative Weekly thing just to get myself doing more artistic things. I love learning new mediums and just doing what flows naturally! 

What do you guys think of The Creative Weekly??

I'd love to know what you think of my and if you do any sort of art and what mediums you like! :)

P.S. This weekend I plan to update my header, social media buttons, signature, etc. so stay tuned!

Back Again! ~Birthday ~ Oregon ~ Halloween~

I'm back again!! Haha, I know, I know, lately that's all I've been doing- coming and going... but I'm here again and I'm staying! Before I post some typical posts again, I'd love to share a few photos explaining what I've been up to and all that jazz. I celebrated my 22nd birthday in October and I'm making a promise to myself to make this my best year yet!


I really enjoyed the month of October but I'm sooo happy to be back blogging and doing other productive things ;)
