Unique Gifts for Every Occasion at Red Envelope

necklaceI love finding websites that contain a number of gifts. It’s nice to go to one site and be able to find gifts for a variety of people (kids, babies, women, men) for a variety of occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations, thank-yous, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, housewarming, new baby, and so much more). I have this luck with Red Envelope. I’ve been shopping on this site for years and am always finding great new things!

This site is super convenient. The gifts are unique and not things that I regularly see in stores. They are also reasonably priced with deals from time to time. Right now, they are having a motherhood jewelry sale with 20% off of select styles. Take advantage of this if you are looking for great Mother’s Day gifts.


Great Outdoor Products at Solutions!

blog-solutionsSpring is officially here and I am so excited. This is one of my favorite seasons of the year and I can’t wait until the weather warms up just a little more so I can spend my free time taking the dog for long walks, golfing, getting some landscaping done, grilling, and of course those nights that involve sitting by a campfire.

When looking for ideas and products for landscaping, I went to Solutions first. This is my go-to site for all other home items, so I didn’t think twice about going here first. I found some great things, including this gorgeous hanging planter. I love the brown and turquoise color combination.

What are some of your landscaping tips and tricks? If you have some, please share them with me! Have a great weekend!

So Many Amazing Wedding Party Supplies at Oriental Trading



My best friend is getting married in August. It seemed like so far away but now March is nearing the end and suddenly it seems like it’s just around the corner.

I checked the mail today and had an Oriental Trading catalog waiting for me. I thought this was great timing because we had just talked on the phone the other day about all of the things that had to be done yet! She’s feeling a little overwhelmed and I’m glad to step in and help out.

They have a ton of wedding supplies available including party favors, crafts, wedding party gifts, decorations and so much more. I love their selection and can’t wait to share some ideas with the bride-to-be!

Coach Factory Has Some Awesome Deals!

coachI love saving money on name brand items. Coach is one of my favorite brands, but I definitely can’t afford to shop there and pay full price. I have bills to pay and spending almost $400 on a purse seems like wreckless spending to me. However, it’s hard to overlook the top quality of bags that are made by Coach, so sometimes you get what you pay for.

I was walking around an outlet mall a couple of weeks ago when I was on vacation. My man was out golfing and since that’s not of any interest to me, I thought I would find something that DOES interest me and that happens to be shoes and purses! When I came across the Coach Factory outlet I was instantly intrigued–how have I not heard of this until now? I ended up buying a bag for $119 that was originally $398!

If you don’t have a Coach Factory store near you, then check out their online store. You need an e-mail address to sign up, but it’s quick, easy and free.

My Weekend: Shopping, Spring Cleaning, and Waxing in Huntington Beach

blog-spring cleaningWhat are you all up to this weekend? I can’t believe it’s already Friday! This week seemed to fly by and I’m hoping that this weekend doesn’t go by just as quickly. Now that spring has officially arrived, it seems like my schedule is filling up pretty quickly!

I have a pretty good weekend plan! It’s going to be a mixture of fun and productivity, and it’s going to start this tomorrow morning with a couple of hours of spring cleaning. Then I’m going to work out and head to CloudMover (which is the only place I’ll go for waxing in Huntington Beach). On Sunday, I’m metting up with some of my girlfriends for a day of shopping! We’ll probably grab dinner together while we’re out and about and then most likely to one of our favorite wineries for a glass (or four) of wine!
