Trenzas Dark Soft Gray Washable Rug

Lorena Canal Rugs:

These rugs are WASHABLE! I repeat… WASHABLE! We have a large dark gray braided rug, just like this one, in our hallway and it is perfect for an area with a lot of traffic because I know I can just wash it. We are in a rental right now and I just don’t really trust rental carpet, so I love having rugs in every room. The problem is that rugs can be really high maintenance. The Lorena Canal washable rugs aren’t high maintenance at all and look incredible! It is totally worth spending your Christmas money on!

HP Sprocket Instant Printer

HP Sproket 2-in-1 Photo Printer:

I was given this as part of a sponsored opportunity with MomSelect and HP and I have loved it! This little gem is so fun! It is about the size of a cell phone, so you can take it just about anywhere and print off photos from any of your Bluetooth capable devices. The 2-in-1 model is fun because it is also an instant camera. It has Zero Ink technology that makes it so you don’t have to use ink cartridges or anything. It is kind of magic! It is perfect to take on vacations and would be the perfect thing to spoil yourself with!

Eyeshadow Palette Storage

Eyeshadow Palette Storage

I can’t believe that it took me so long to buy an eyeshadow palette tower. I have owned mine for about a year and I love it! I love that it keeps my palettes all organized, without taking up a lot of space. I also love that I can see all of my palettes at one time. I have been able to use all of my palettes more often because they are all easily accessible. You totally need one (or a few) of these!

Prismacolor Colored Pencils

Prismacolor Colored Pencils

I really enjoy coloring. It is a great way to relax and I love coloring with my daughter to spend some special time with her. I have used a lot of different types of colored pencils, pens, crayons, and markers over the years and I waited a long time before trying the Prismacolor colored pencils because I knew they were a bit of an investment. I am so glad that I finally tried them! There are no colored pencils quite like these. They are soft as butter and have such beautiful colors! They make you feel like you are creating a work of art, even if it is just something in a coloring book.

Pattern Play Coloring Book

I am sick of typical TV! Amazon Fire TV is awesome because it lets you watch TV, without traditional TV service. We have loved using it for the last few months. It is nice because you can have access to Alexa with the remote too.


I own the older model of this and I love it so much! It works wonders on my skin. I love that it is really portable and holds a charge for a really long time too. I use mine in the shower everyday. They make them in different models for personalized skincare. They are really amazing little tools!
