Treat Yo Self Gift Basket Ideas

No matter what age you are, every gal likes to be pampered! And for some reason it’s usually the last thing we spend money on which is why these types of gifts are always appreciated so much! I’ve given some variation of a “Treat Yo Self” gift basket to pretty much every friend and family member over the years and the response is always the same- LOVE LOVE LOVE!

The best part is that you can customize the gift basket to fit your giftee. If you know they love bubble baths, give them a bath tray, bath bombs, and a candle. If they aren’t a fan of baths, customize a mask basket complete with masks for the face, lips and under eyes – aka the works. If they are a homebody, give them a cute pajama set, slippers and throw blanket because lord knows the majority of us will wear an old college shirt before dropping money on a new set of cozies. Do they like game nights? Give them a fun game, a bottle of wine and cute wine glass. Speaking of wine, literally every “Treat Yo Self” gift basket is instantly made 100X better simply by adding your giftee’s favorite bottle of wine or bubbly.

So even if you are last minute, this easy gift basket idea will look like you put plenty of thought and time into hand picking each component – talk about a win win! All of these items can be found on Amazon Prime (2 day shipping), Target (order online and pick up at the front counter), or Nordstrom (order online and pick up at the front counter).

Crushing on Yellow

one | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight | nine | ten | eleven | twelve

Although the official Pantone color of the year is technically purple, yellow is in full force in just about every store you see. I didn’t even realize how much I was drawn to this color until a recent online order showed up and i’m not kidding when I say the entire box was yellow! I was determined I couldn’t pull off this particular color, but you’d be surprised what a little bit of self tanner does for a yellow outfit and frankly for the soul as well 😉 This is the self tanner I’ve been using and loving so far! I get the dark shade, apply it with a mitt, sleep with it on, and wash it off in the morning!

If you aren’t convinced that you can rock yellow quite yet, adding in a little color with your accessories is a good place to start. Especially if you are a neutral girl, these earrings or cute espadrilles (true to size) would instantly take your muted outfit to Spring time cutie! See below for more accessories and yellow crushes.

Tuesday Trend: Straw Bags

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12

After getting several requests from you ladies on where to find straw bags under $50, I thought it was about time to share the good news. It is actually easier than you think to find an on trend bag on a budget. I have not tried any of these bags out myself yet but all of the ones that I found have amazing reviews (make sure you read them too!). This trend was around last year and I honestly don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon. So if you’ve had your eye on one but don’t want to fork out an arm and leg, here are some for all budgets!

Spring Trends Up To 25% Off


It’s that time of the year to stock up on Spring trends and what better way than to score brand new items at 25% off? Sign me up! I’m talking popular designers like Free People, Madewell, Sam Edelman, Levi’s, Agolde, and so many more! The two retailers below are having 20-25% off right now and so I’ve rounded up some of my favorite items based on trends that I am currently loving.

Bloomingdale’s Friends & Family Sale

4/6 – 4/15 | Up to 25% off + free shipping

Shopbop Sale

4/10 – 4/14 | 20% off orders under $500, 25% off orders over $500 with code EVENT18

To get the best savings, you have to spend over $500. I highly suggest going in together with friends or family to reach that $500 mark. While that sounds like a lot to spend, there are several investment pieces in my own closet that I wish I had scored at 25% off. See below for the items from the sale that are already in my closet.


Overalls & Jumpsuits

Woven Accessories

Wrap Dresses & Skirts
