Sew Cute Holiday: Guy Gift Guide

Friday, December 8, 2017

I am convinced guys are the worst to shop for. I never know what to get my boyfriend, dad, etc. for Christmas. But, this year, now that I am working for Barbour, finding gifts everyone is excited about is a little easier. For my boyfriend he has been eyeing the Barbour leather duffle bag. It's the perfect weekend travel bag that looks sleek and stylish, but functional. Then for dad's, or your significant other's dad, the Barbour wash bags are great! I find that most guys carry the same cosmetic bag for travel for years before they replace it. So, this is an easy gift that is functional you can give to either your dad, or a guy on the go! Scarfs are also a great option for an easy gift. They nice thing about Barbour scarfs are that most are unisex, so they make great gifts for anyone. My brother has been eyeing this Barbour messenger bag for a new work bag. This is a great gift for your brother, dad, or anyone that just started a new job or college! Then of course, I had to include the Ashby wax jacket. This is one of Barbour's most popular styles! Practically every guy looks great in this jacket, plus it works in so many different temperatures and is weatherproof, perfect for the winter months.

As for non-Barbour gifts, my boyfriend is a huge Yeti fan. So a Yeti tumbler or colster is a great gift for a guy in college. Also, Smathers and Brandson has some great small and larger gifts. For a larger gift their needle point belts are great! They come in so many designs and you can really find one customized to the guy you are shopping for. Then a keyring is a great stocking stuffer for a college student or someone who just got their license or permit.  Of course cologne is always a great option as well. I love the Polo Black scent! But, obviously there are a million different options out there, and you can usually find a gift set for a great price around the holidays. Gift sets like this Kiehl's men's set also make great gifts. I mainly love this set because of the Mickey holiday packaging (because duh). Last but not least, a great watch is a perfect Christmas item! I love the look of Shinolas, but there are a lot of splurge worthy watch brands that fit a lot of different styles.

I hope this gift guide gave you some ideas on what to get the guys in your life! These are all gifts I will be giving, or have seen the guys in my life love!

Mickey tee | Pooh Bear makeup bag | Alien tee 

Let's be honest, Disney gifts are not hard to come by. But, sometimes it's hard to find things that are affordable, but cute. So, today I rounded up my picks for awesome Disney gifts, for the Disney lover in your life, that are all UNDER $50! Pick up Pixar themed gear for your guy (or girl let's be honest I'm obsessed with the Toy Story Alien men) then a Danielle Nicole piece for your best Disney gal pal! All of these items are either from Shop Disney, Boxlunch, or Hot Topic. Boxlunch and Hot Topic have a ton of hidden Disney gems, and almost always have a sale or promotion going on! Be on the lookout for deals from those two websites to score some of these gifts on sale.

Sew Cute Holiday: Christmas Makeup Look

Monday, December 4, 2017

The holidays call for lots and lots of glitter, plus a fun red lip. I was sent some C.Y.O cosmetics makeup to try out and I am loving this sparkly holiday look. C.Y.O is a new cosmetic brand that is available only at Walgreens. Check out my Instagram post to learn more about C.Y.O and the products I used in this look. 

This makeup look features a sparkly silver eye shadow stick and shadow along with a black liner. I love this liner because it has a super unique tip. Plus, it went on super dark and black. To me, metallics are the perfect look for the holidays. Whether you like silver, rose gold, or gold glitter eyeshadow is the perfect way to add a dash of holiday magic to your makeup look. The CYO metallic eye stick comes in so many great colors to create your own metallic look. 

A quick pause on the makeup talk, let's talk about the outfit details for a bit. 

Where it's from: 
Vest | Land's End 
Turtle Neck | Target 
Bracelets | KJP, Alex and Ani 
Earrings | Kate Spade 

I love this liquid red lipstick. It is actually metallic! The best part, it doesn't dry out your lips like other liquid lipstick products I have tried. I also tried their dual ended lipstick and lip liner and that is also great! Both of my shades were in a fun red color, perfect for Christmas time. 

You wanna know the best part of CYO cosmetics? Everything is so affordable! All of the products are around $5 to $6, which makes them great holiday gifts. For the price I found these products had great quality. 

What is your favorite makeup look for the holidays? Let me know in the comments! 
I was sent these CYO products for free c/o of CYO for an Instagram post. All opinions are my own. 

Dose of Disney: Casual Mickey Style

Friday, December 1, 2017

If you keep up with my Instagram stories, which you totally should, you would know I shopped the new Disney x Cath Kidston collection recently. This collection was all about Mickey and friends! The last Mickey collection I didn't get to many items, but with his friends thrown into the mix I was super interested in this collection. I love Donald, Daisy, and more so I was super excited to see them included in this collection. 

I picked up quite a few pieces from this collection, because everything was so darn cute. Cath Kidston, if you didn't know, is a U.K. based brand that I fell in love with while studying abroad in London 2 years ago. In the past year or so they have been doing collaborations with Disney to create adorable collections! From Mickey, Pooh Bear, Peter Pan, and 101 Dalmatians they have created some adorable pieces. 

From this collection I picked up two mugs, a skirt, this adorable sweatshirt, a luggage tag, a pouch, and a trinket tray! Everything is still in stock, so be sure to snag it if you like it. These are limited edition items!!! 

I wore this super casual look to see Disney Pixar's new film Coco! Side note: the movie is amazing. Amazing animation, amazing store, amazing everything. I did cry, but not as much as I thought! So that is a win for Miranda. 

I paired my Mickey bouquet sweatshirt with a pair of simple J. Crew toothpick jeans, my new go-to pair of denim. To accessorize I wore Mickey hand earrings from Typo that I picked up in their Mall of America store! They have a whole Disney collection that is so dang cute. Too complete the look I topped it off with my Disney Pandora charm bracelet and some Disney Alex and Ani bangles. 

How do you style for a lazy day? I love wearing a comfy sweatshirt and jeans! Let me know in the comments below.
