My family has always said the items that filled our stockings were some of the most fun items to dig into on Christmas morning.  My mom usually fills my stocking with some fun accessories and beauty products that I’m always so anxious to test out right away!  In this week’s MRS Gift Guide, we’re talking stocking stuffers that would be perfect for mom, sister, sister-in-law or dear friend!  Let’s dig in!MRSgiftguide_stockingstuffers

1) Sephora Brush Set // I’ve become a little bit of a skincare/makeup junky lately as I’ve been so curious to test out new products and find the perfect “face recipe” now that my skin has taken on it’s winter white.  Just as important as the products you apply are the tools you use to apply the products! From eyes, to cheeks, to lips…this brush set will have you covered!

2) Kate Spade Monogram Card Set // Personalized gifts always score points!

3) Dior Airflash Foundation // I’ve heard several friends rave about this foundation and I’m anxious to try it myself!

4) Bed Head TIGI Hairspray // I SWEAR by this hairspray…the only aerosol can I’ve allowed in my bathroom for the past 5 years.  Great scent, great flexible hold.  I like to stock up on these items during the annual hairspray sale at Beauty Brands and gift them to my favorite ladies come Christmas!

5) Kate Spade Bow Push Pins // Stocking stuffers are great for those items that some find unnecessary but still totally adore!  While KS push pins aren’t a NEED, they are a perfect small item to up the cute factor in a holiday stocking.

6) OPI Nail Polish // One red, one green!

7) Skinny Metallic Faux-Leather Belt // With 50% OFF sales over Black Friday, you’d be crazy not to pick up this item for your girls!

8) Petite Prong Studs // Pretty pink studs will be a welcomed treat!

9) She Is Pencils // I fell in LOVE with these sassy writing utensils when I first saw them grace my Instagram feed!  Who says your pencils have to be boring?

10) Voluspa Candle // Need I say anything about this?  I think I’ve made it clear over and over again that I have strong affections for Voluspa candles.

Have any other great suggestions to fill the stockings of the ladies in your life?  Comment below, I’d love to know! Happy Shopping!

Happy Monday Y’all!

I apologize for my lack of posts lately! I told y’all in the beginning this blog would follow my journey of juggling my many responsibilities and lately its been a crazy combination of group projects, travel and prep for final exams. But now it’s time to get back on track!

Asking your dear friends to be a part of your bridal party is an exciting thing!  The women who will be standing as my witnesses on that day are girls who have seen me at my worst, been supportive in some of the most difficult times and celebrated many joyous occasions with me.  They each have also been very special roles of support in my relationship with BRS and for that I am very thankful.

I wanted to make sure that each of my sweet friends knew how much it would mean to me to have them by my side on that day when BRS and I make our covenant to one another.  Handwritten notes are a great way to show sincerity and appreciation for others.  They also allow a lot of room for creativity!

For this “bridesmaid proposal” I decided to carry out our wedding’s rustic theme with the use of burlap and twine.  I used a vintage design “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” printable from Wedding Chicks as my stationery.  (Wedding Chicks also has great Thank You notes, Invitation Suites, etc that you can print for free! I head over to their blog every chance I get for great inspiration posts and ideas!)

I attached each note to a mini-bottle of champagne (in honor of the celebration to be had!).  On the back of the stationery is where I wrote out my request to have each bridesmaid share in our special day.  I think they turned out pretty cute!

What do y’all think? How did you ask your gals to join you on your wedding day? Let me know and leave a comment below!
