This month there were three different ipsy bags. They each have a similar ombre style, with different color and different wording.:
Peace Love Lipstick, Wild & Free, and Good Vibes Only
As you can see, I got the Good Vibes Only. In life, I think it's really important to be positive and spread positivity. There's always negativity dragging everyone down, so why add to it? Be the bright spot in someone's day!
I don't care what you say, shopping for guys is challenging. You want to give a gift that is unique, meaningful, and something they will actually like and use. It's no easy feat. Alas! I have an idea for you!!
If you love things handcrafted from wood or are trying to find a gift for someone who does, check out this shop on Etsy: Kajzars Wood Work.
They are located in Slovenia and make some gorgeous wooden cufflinks, earrings, necklaces, pens etc.
The shop owner responds quickly and has good communication, keeping you updated as he custom makes your items and letting you know when they ship out.
I wouldn't call the prices cheap, but considering that they are hand made and shipping is INCLUDED, I think it can be worth it if this is your style. Estimated shipping time is 10-14 business days from Slovenia to most places, so keep that in mind and order well in advance. That being said, my order came a lot faster than that.
A great idea for a groomsman gift would be matching cufflinks to wear on the wedding day and beyond. Or their amazing wooden pens.
I love the way the earrings hang when you wear an updo.
For the cufflinks, I have to say I think the abalone ones are very special. The other ones are nice, but look much more shiny in the shop photos. If you hadn' t seen those photos you would probably think they were amazing as is though!!
Pair these with a cool tie from Juanmarcos design, a great custom tie bar, and you have a awesome guy gift ready to go!
If you love unique, wooden items and want to support a skilled craftsman, definitelycheck out Kajzars Woodwork Etsy Shop, Facebook Page, and Instagram. It's so much fun when a gift has an interesting background as to where it came from and who made it! <3

4. Whish Firming Body Cream
5. Etat Libre d'Orange You or Someone Like You Eau de Parfum
I finally did it. The insane. The unheard of. The completely uncharacteristic. After several years of staring, drooling, trying to choose a color.... I finally broke down and ordered the outrageously priced luxurious leather ballet flats -- Tieks.
Most people are not especially interested in modest swimwear, but if you are you know how difficult it can be to track down. Even a one piece is often cut in multiple ways that can make it quite showy.
I have lovedswim skirts as an option, but it can be annoying how the flowy skirt portion floats up to the surface of the water and besides, some of the skirted parts aren't even long enough to cover anything, but are more of a decoration!
If you want the convenience of two pieces with modesty and functionality I recommend the swim short... or swim pant? or swim Capri?
I wasn't sure how this would go so I ordered 3 options from Amazon that had free returns:
I found all three to be suitable options (pun intended)... :p
But I decided I liked the weight of the material best on the two from Private Island Hawaii Brand.
It took me a while of deliberating. But since I plan to wear these with tankinis that adjust to swim dress length, I decided I liked the longer length ones. These also give me the option to easily go from pool and beach to shopping, traveling, touring, eating, etc without totally screaming "Hey Y'all, I'm in swimwear!"
If you're looking for a modest, comfortable, and versatile swimwear option I think this style is a great bet!
I have to tell you I was skeptical when DH told me he signed up forHP's Instant Ink program. Basically you pay a certain amount of money per month to HP to print a certain number of pages. They automatically send you new cartridges as needed. I thought we were legit going to be getting ripped off every month.
(I was pleasantly surprised)
"Supposedly" there was a substantial savings to this.
