Holiday Gift Guide Under $50

I know, Thanksgiving isn't even until tomorrow and I'm already thinking about holiday shopping! Can you blame me, though? Some people have started waaay before me, too! After all, it's that time of year... when you want to give & get, but not empty out your entire wallet. I absolutely love everything about the holiday season, from the twinkling lights, delicious foods and drinks, rich golds and jewel tones, cozying up in the comfiest knits, and spoiling your loved ones (while being spoiled in return!)

Below is my 2014 Holiday Gift Guide featuring quirky accessories, sparkling jewelry, fun & chic gadgets, beautiful houseware, and luscious beauty products to make you even more beautiful than you already are!

Birthday Lust-List!

I'm giving you a double feature today, with this morning's post bringing some celebratory inspiration through the sweetest fashion editorials.

I'm 24 today! Although it may just be "another year" for many, I have made some huge changes in the past year, with the biggest one being my recent move to San Francisco. I'm excited to see what the next year has in store for me, with my career, Panache Offblast, and any new adventures along the way. I'll keep it short and sweet today with an oh-so-lust-worthy wishlist!

Nasty Gal has launched two vintage designer collections so far, Moschino and Chanel, and of course I'm in love with both!

Moschino

Chanel

I'm not sure what I'm up to for the rest of my birthday today (aside from dinner and dessert of course), but I'm excited nonetheless! I think I'll always love celebrating birthdays - both mine and others - no matter the age. We can all be selfish for a day, right?!

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!


And I really just want to wear my Betsey Johnson dresses and eat a lot of delicious sweets.

It's also the fabulous Christian Siriano's birthday along with Mickey Mouse! Hooray!

Here is a bundle of darling celebratory fashion editorials, perfect for a special day like today (yes, I'm calling my birthday special!)
