This book was my favorite this year! 

It’s SO GOOD that I gifted copies to my studio clients. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it! This is one of those books you can and should read over and over! I’ve got highlights all overs. 

Girl wash your face by Rachel Hollis is inspiring, real, and funny. She opens our eyes to lies that we often tell ourselves that hold us back from becoming the joyous, confident woman we we want to be. She gives you specific practical strategies to move past them and rise.

This book is perfect for busy moms especially because you can just read a chapter at a time with days or weeks in between....cause life happens...and still pick up where you left off.

Get ready to laugh, learn and grow!

4. Osprey Womens Palea pack


You’re never too old for a backpack! As much a I love the look of large handbag…they don’t match up in comfort, support, convenience of a backpack. I use this one for work and travel. After much researching…done by husband…cause that what he likes to do…he picked this one for me. I picked the color. :)

I love that it’s designed for woman, has so many handy storage areas and the coolest thing is that it was a built in kickstand that keeps pack upright and accessible!

9. Vitamix Blender


Vitamix is the most popular kitchen gadget in my house. Its versatile and a time saver for busy lives. From healthy smoothies to soups, this Blender is worth the price. My kids love making smoothies in the Vitamix and freezing left over for popsicles. We have created so many wonderful memories together in the kitchen with the Vitamix. As the price point can be hefty for this product, we went for the refurbished one since it has the same warranty.

10. Rishi Turmeric Ginger Tea


Confession: I am obsessed with teas. :) I usually make turmeric tea from scratch at home but sometimes you just need tea in a hurry and this is one of my favorites. I first had them at a local coffee house and became an instant fan.  I love Turmeric and Ginger for its soothing comfort and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Happy gifting, Lovelies!
