Under $30 Beauty and Wellness Gifts or Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Guys, Christmas is creeping up super fast! If you haven’t taken advantage of shopping during Cyber week for gifts, firstly, why not?! And secondly, don’t worry. I got you covered. Cyber week can be really overwhelming with the number of sales and choices you have. So today, I’m going to focus on a gift basically everyone loves to receive, beauty and wellness gifts for HIM or HER! So, let’s just jump right in as I share what’s on my list and in my cart! PS.. all these items are under $30 too with their Cyber Monday sale (which is up to 80% off almost everything)!   1. Quartz Roller The BEST stocking stuffer for your mama, sister or girlfriend. This little quartz roller is such a staple in a good skincare regime. It’s easy to use. Pretty to look at. And a must have that many women don’t know they needed until they receive it. The quartz roller is a definite must-have for stuffing stockings this Christmas. 2. Dry Brush and Massager Shh.. this is on the list for my hubby. He always wants to exfoliate his back in the shower and have a brush that can massage him as well. As soon as I saw this body exfoliating brush I knew I had to get it for him for Christmas 3. Hydrating Rose Facial Spray This spray has been giving my dry skin all the moisturizing and love that it needs during these cold months. I will definitely be filling stockings…

Holiday Sparkle w/ Honey

Finally, it’s time for all things Christmas! Other then the Christmas movies, music, food and decoration I *obviously* love Holiday dresses. Embarrassingly, I have SO many dresses this year. Hopefully, I have more events coming up otherwise I will literally have nowhere to wear them (lol). Anyways, it’s been a while since I’ve done an outfit post on my blog! So, I wanted to quickly share my favorite Holiday dress so far today on BBL. Both the dress and the bodysuit are from Honey! I am totally OBSESSED with this dress. Like, OBSESSED. I love it without the bodysuit and with tights. Or, with the bodysuit for a less formal event. Super cute either way. And a definite must have. Honey doesn’t have an online shop but you can check out their website here to check their Canadian locations. But I also did link similar dresses and bodysuits for those who don’t live in Canada. 🙂 XO Lauren

My 5 Most Worn Pieces for Fall

Top (similar) | Skirt c/o | Tights | Boots (similar) I am definitely a creature of habit when it comes to day-to-day outfits. I love to have a few go-to pieces that I feel bring together almost any piece in my closet. And, obviously, my go-to pieces from season to season change. So far, this Fall, I’ve already found my go-to’s that I can’t stop reaching for! I’m all about a versatile closet with a few neutral pieces that just work (and a few printed pieces too)! My 5 Most Worn Pieces for Fall: 1. Neutral Turtleneck It gets so dang cold here in Toronto and a cozy turtleneck is a definite must! I love having a neutral turtleneck to pair with jeans, trousers, and skirts. And I personally get SO much wear out of my turtlenecks from Fall to Winter, it’s crazy. My tip for having a versatile Fall wardrobe is adding a lot of sweaters and turtlenecks. 2. Plaid Skirt Okay, honestly plaid is a new print for me this season. Crazy, I know. I’ve never been into plaid before. But this Fall I am dying over plaid everything. This plaid mini has been so versatile for me. I’ve worn it during the day, like above, and out for date night with a flirty blouse. It’s just such a great Fall staple. 3. Tights If you’re a cold weather girl you’ll already know that tights are not optional. I’ve already been grabbing for my tights all Fall long. Especially…

Must Have Boots for Fall

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 Who else is a self-proclaimed boot addict/hoarder when Fall rolls around?! *raises hand*  I mean, does Fall really happen if you don’t have a closet full of cute boots? Um, I think not. And so far, this Fall season, I’ve been finding a TON of different boots that are so fab. From sock booties to western booties to my favorite over-the-knee boots. I mean, no matter what your style is there is a boot for you girl! So I decided to share my current must-have boots for Fall. And yes, I own 3 out of 5 of the boots above. And no, I am not ashamed! Which ones are your fave? xo Lauren
