Phew! Is it just me or is anyone else feeling like this first week back to work was… rough!? I’m not sure if it was just the adjustment to being back in a normal routine or what, but I struggled. Anyway, it’s FRIDAY – the week is over. We made it!
I figured I’d share a few of my *FAV GIFTS* that I got for the holidays this year – including things I gifted myself… 😉
My family and I did try to do a bit less gift exchanging this year and took more of a minimalist approach, but a little gifting never hurt anyone, right? Not to toot my own horn or anything, I also gave some pretty awesome gifts this year – I’ll share those next week.
This is the purchase I’m most excited about. This planner is the shit. I have to give full credit to my bestie, Sarah, for recommending this, she’s used it for three years and is a Passion Planner OG.
This planner lets you set yearly, monthly, weekly, and daily goals. It has plenty of ways to customize how. you want to plan and is easy to lay out your daily plans/activities/ambitions in.
I have a lot of goals and intentions for 2018, so I’m excited to be able to organize them all in one place. There’s even a “Space of Infinite Possibility” to add whatever notes/ideas/thoughts that come to you in the middle of the night in. Plus, the inspirational quotes for each week at an added bonus.
Check out their website for an in-depth description. Highly recommend!
So, I won this at my husband’s work holiday party white elephant. Not gonna lie, this is probably one of the best white elephant gifts I’ve won in a long time. I love Origins and the fact that their products are mostly natural. And, this smells AMAZING! I’m obsessed with ginger anything, and it’s not often you find ginger body products!
If you know me, you’ll know I’m a sucker for candles. I cannot walk into a store and not inquire about their candle section. I also physically cannot pass by a candle and not pick it up to smell it. I’m a real candle connoisseur. SO, I was super pumped to find this incredible smelling candle half-off with all of the Christmas stuff at the airport on my way back to DC!
Pro-tip: Christmas candles include winter scents… and, in case you weren’t sure – it’s still winter!
