Five for Friday - Gifts for Kids!


Happy Friday Y'all!  I'm sorry the blog was quiet this week but we:
closed on the house last Friday
moved on Saturday
finally got cable and internet on Tuesday
have been unpacking and getting settled ever since

We should be wrapped up this weekend including holiday decor!  Once it's all done I'll do a proper home tour post.

But speaking of holidays...Christmas is right around the corner!  Eeek, I am so so excited.  I absolutely love the holidays.  I love spending this time with friends and family and celebrating the joy of the season.

This is my last gift guide for this season and it's all about the kids in your life.  One of my favorite things to do is find the PERFECT gift for my niece each year.  I've had some good ones.  Here are my top 5 gifts for kids this year including the one I got for the Little Miss.

Five for Friday - Beauty Gifts for the Holidays


Y'all.  Today is the day.  We close on our house!  Eeek!!!  I am so excited!  I can't wait to be all unpacked and settled in the new house.  This might be my favorite Friday ever.

You know what else is my favorite?  These five great beauty buys that would make great gifts.  You know you have a beauty product addict that you're buying for, or maybe you're one yourself and you can't pass these up.  #thatwouldbeme #givemeallthebeautyproducts

Hair Care - Maple Holistics

Let's talk a little bit about hair care.  I have very curly hair.  If you know anything about curly hair it can be unruly and it can also dry out very easily.  I love my curly hair and try to take the best care of it.  That means little heat, microfiber towels to absorb moisture after the shower, and great shampoo.

When Maple Holistics approached me a couple of weeks ago about trying their Tea Tree Oil Shampoo, I was intrigued.  I love Tea Tree products and decided I would give it a try.  

Y'all.  I love this Shampoo.


I don't shampoo every day, but when I do I have been using this one and it is so good.  The first thing you notice is the scent.  Hints of rosemary with the tea tree oil make me feel like I'm at a spa.  It's not overpowering, but first thing in the morning it's a nice way to start the day (especially after barre class).


 So the scent is a plus.  But how did it make my hair feel?  Wonderful.  I would follow up with my usual conditioner and my hair the past two weeks has been softer and silkier.  In the winter my scalp can get dry and this has helped with that too.  And the bonus?  It's cruelty-free, paraben-free, GMO-free, and gluten-free.

It's definitely worth getting.  And at under $9 for the bottle, it can't hurt to try.  I can't wait to try the other products

 *** the shampoo was given to me by Maple Holistics, thoughts and opinions on the product are my own.  Other than the shampoo  I was given to try, I was not paid to endorse the product**

Five for Friday - Stocking Stuffers


Happy Friday!  Are you as excited for the weekend as I am?  This has been quite a week and next week doesn't look to slow down any.  We have our final walkthrough of the house on Monday and then we close on Friday and move on Saturday!  This weekend we plan on wrapping up the rest of the packing.

Just because we're in a little bit of chaos though doesn't mean I'm not thinking about the holidays.  I can't wait to decorate the house and since we have a mantle and fireplace, we'll have a nice place to hang the stockings this year.

I'm always a little stumped as to what to put in Mr. Fisher's stocking.  I usually add a little bit of his favorite candies - Reese's Christmas Trees and Peppermints - and then some fun little gifts and maybe a bottle of cologne.

Need some ideas?  Here are my five favorite stocking stuffer ideas this year.

That Island Life


For our honeymoon, Mr. Fisher and I decided on Hawaii.  There were a few reasons for this - he had never been, it's gorgeous with great weather the time of year we were going, and seeing volcanoes was on his bucket list.  And we wanted a relaxing vacation.

Oh we had such a good time.  We'll look back at pictures and say, I wish we were back there.

And speaking of Mr. Fisher...let's talk gifts for the guys in your life.  I started my shopping a couple of weeks ago.  We are starting a new tradition of buying gifts according to this: something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read.
