Hello Loves,

I hope you all had a fabulous holiday…. and HAPPY 2017!!!

I am happy to say I’m back from a rather spontaneous and much needed 3 weeks off. I really didn’t plan to stop blogging or Instagramming, but I needed/wanted to get back to reality. Christmas seemed like the most perfect time to do so, with La Familia in town, I was able to focus on what was important.

I got lost along the way, but with a new year brings change…I plan to change the way I handle this whole ‘blogging’ career. I need to try and make this more of a 9-5 than a 24/7 situation. It is important to remember the whole point of this thing, it’s called life… and to have one!

So no matter what your job is stay focused on what is important to you.

Hello Loves!

I woke up today to SHOCK HORROR! Christmas is only 9 days away and I am yet to get the hubby a gift!! ¬°Ay no!

There is a reason to why I am dragging my feet with his gift. HE IS SO GOSH DARN ANNOYING TO SHOP FOR! Every year I ask him, “hey baby, what would you like for Christmas?” to which he replies “Uh nothing babe, don’t worry”. UGH! WHY?! He always asks for nothing… but gosh forbid I get him nothing. That won’t go down well! #UghMen

But then I got ta thinking, I am probably not the ONLY one in this boat. Everyone has one annoying man folk in their life, so I thought I would help you out while I shop and give you some manly gift giving ideas.

Socks

  • My man loves his socks. Socks are actually a great accessory, the bolder the better.

BUY NOW

Cocktail Kit

  • Most men love a good drink after a long day. But why not create your own special cocktail at home!

BUY NOW

Coat

  • It’s getting cold, so why not buy your fashionista male a lovely classic coat.

BUY NOW

Book

  • Books are always a perfect gift. But if you don’t know what they like to read… a gift card to his fav bookstore is also a great idea.

BUY NOW

Wallet/Card Holder

  • Looking for something on the luxury end? A wallet or a card holder is the perfect way to do this without breaking the bank too much. Don’t forget to put money in it, otherwise it’s bad luck.

BUY NOW

Cologne

  • I think ‘smelly’s’ are the classic gift, so why not keep the tradition going.

BUY NOW

GoPro

  • For your camera loving man, get him a GoPro. It’s a win win as you will get some amazing videos and images while he is happy to take them.

BUY NOW

Slippers

  • Baby it’s cold outside. So snuggle up with this gorgeous pair of slippers I just got you!

BUY NOW

FitBit

  • For that active man in your life, why not get him a FitBit. It also doubles as a pretty rad arm candy accessory.

BUY NOW

Flask

  • My man likes everything engraved. Engraved flasks are a lovely gift… a personal keepsake.

BUY NOW

I hope some of these gift ideas come in use. MERRY CHRISTMAS SUGARS.

Hello Loves!

The snow is falling, keeping me captured inside the warmth of my home. I mean it’s lovely to have the excuse to wear pj’s and no makeup… but let’s face it, staying in all day can be rather boring.

I have spent the entire day trying to keep myself entertained. UGH! So I thought I would devise a ‘what to do when your stuck inside, because it’s snowing a lot’ things to do list. So here it is:

  1. Clean – Ugh! No thanks, but it kinda has to be here.
  2. Write – Get creative, write a blog post maybe.
  3. Makeup – Re-create your fav YouTube makeup videos.
  4. Read – Snuggle up under a blanket and read a lovely book.
  5. Cook – Head over to buzzfeed and follow one of those awesome recipes.
  6. Social Media – Play around with your fav apps… Snapchat filters are rather fun.
  7. Movies – Binge watch your fav movies and TV shows. I have just finished The Crown on Netflix.
  8. Call – Have a chat with a close friend on the phone… they are probably just as bored as you.
  9. Shop – Online shopping is always a fun thing to do when you can’t physically get to the mall.
  10. Bath – Take a warm bubble bath, to keep you toasty.

So if, like me you are trapped inside your home… or if you are just f*cking it and taking the day off work, I hope some of these things will keep you entertained.

Hello Loves,

When it comes to Christmas shopping I have a more unusual approach. No I don’t think about each person and try to figure out what they would like or what’s on their wish list, because let’s face it… I don’t have the brain capacity to remember to brush my teeth, let alone remember what someone may or may not have requested for a gift.

If you want to be gifted something in particular… send me an e-mail, I’ll read that!

No when it comes to Christmas shopping, I shop for myself. No really for myself (well yes for myself… shh) but if I like it, and if I would buy it for myself, then it’s good enough for… whoever.

So I have compiled a bunch of presents that I would love to receive (I will send you my address… thanks for the gift) that I am sure that special whoever in your life would be more than happy to receive.

If you are looking for something a little more personal, please may I recommend my family business… MacJac Art. I don’t usually do this, however I am so proud of our work. We sell premade digital artwork as well as custom pieces. Don’t know what to get the person who has everything… why not get their fav picture on a variety of materials, such as canvas or even metal!! We also do phone cases, and 3d printing!!

Hello Loves!

I guess it’s that time of year again. No not Dec 1st but the time of the year where the unpredictable weather has me so utterly uncreative. My brain is ‘farting’ again. UGH!

Last year I was able to cure this glitch after a few weeks of ‘…’ , literally DOT DOT DOT was passing through my brain (as it is now), nothing but ‘…’, no creativity whatsoever. Funny unrelated fact, I actually have … tattooed on the outside of my right arm. However, it does have a deeper meaning, in acting terms each dot represents a breath, the … on my arm means breath. Something I should probably do now.

Anyway what was I talking about??? Oh yes, curing my brain fart. I thought I would share a couple of the things I did to get my creativity back, just in case you might be feeling this way too. We will be cured soon… I promise!

  1. Browse your fav Instagram accounts.
  2. Buy a magazine/book that inspires you.
  3. Listen to some music/audio book.
  4. Take a lovely warm bath.
  5. Go out! Escape your space.
