DIY Bridesmaid + Groomsmen Goodie Bags

What exactly went into my bridesmaid's and groomsmen's gift bags?

I wanted to show my appreciation for these boys and babes with tons of products to make them feel special on our big day. 


For the Gals

While in the middle of a wedding everything seems so revolved around me and my soon to be hubby I wanted to be sure to spoil the people taking their time to celebrate with us! I decided to put together these fun boxes for the bridal party, our parents, and our siblings. It was a little mixture of things I love and use all the time, like Invisibobbles and Bling Wipes, and things they might need during the wedding, like  Essie nail polish, Storybook Cosmetics makeup (btw this is my friend of 12 years company!!! WOOHOO), and dry shampoo. I also included a little something extra from my friend's beauty company Storybook Cosmetics. I put it all into an amazing Bridezilla inspired bags by The Wedding Chicks!

I also, included a necklace I had designed with Motif. It's a locket that comes in silver and rosegold (I included the rosegold) that says Sister, Bestie, Mother, Daughter, or Lover. I gave Mother to my mama + my soon to be mother-in-law, Sister to my sissy Savannah Labrant and sis-in-law Lisa, and the Bestie to the bridal party! If you want to buy your own locket click here!!!

I really should have made myself one!..

PS. BIG thanks to Minted for the amazing cards! I was obsessed and they made it so incredibly easy. Also, thanks to Behrman PR for the help with all the girlie goodies. 

The goodie bags were hits! I was ecstatic to show my friends and family how much I love them and how thankful I was for them being part of my big day. I highly suggest putting these goodies together for either your way to ask your bridal party to be in your wedding, or do it like I did where you're thanking them the day before for saying yes months prior. There is no wrong way to show your appreciation to the people you chose to stand beside you on your wedding day. I hope this helps give you all tons of gift bag ideas. 


With love,


Holiday Gift Guide for Him: Part 2

Holiday Gift Guide For Him: Part 2

Last minute shopping for that guy in your life? Here's part two of my gift guide for him for the holiday season! 

Gift Idea 1: Cologne

Giving a man cologne isn't exactly a new idea but it's a great go-to gift. This year, I spent far too much time on and got a Tom Ford cologne for my fiance but I was in love with this Santal scent by Guerlain so much I got one for myself. Does anyone else end up buying their own presents at Christmas like me? It's all about the self love, right? 

Gift Idea 2: A fitness tracker that doesn't look too sporty OR too high-tech

Another gift that I got him because I loved my own version was this fitness tracker ring by MOTIV. I have the rose gold version but I got him the darker color. I love the idea of a fitness tracker but I because they are so sporty and bulky, they aren't great to wear subtly with my every day outfits. These rings are really unique and beautifully designed so they actually add a little something to your look. Like most trackers they keep data on everything from sleep, to steps to heart rate. 

Gift Idea 3: More Shoes... Specifically white shoes from Greats

I remember when I was traveling Europe and crisp white sneakers were on every well dressed guy in sight. Flash forward to today in the Bay Area and clean white sneakers is one of my favorite streetwear trends for both men and women. My current obsession is pretty much any sneaker from Greats so I actually got my guy not one but two different pairs of white options.

Gift Idea 4: Hudson jeans for the tall guy

I know I keep mentioning this but shopping for a guy over 6'3" can be infuriating. Thankfully, Hudson jeans has this amazing dark wash with an extra long inseam and I have a feeling these will be his new go-to pants.

Gift Idea 5: A Thistle subscription for a New Year healthy start

Is your guy going to start a New Year/New You craze again this January? Thistle is a great company that provides easy, healthy snacks and meals to your door. I love having their fresh juices and smoothies always accessible in the fridge and what better gift for the guy who wants to start getting his beach body back this winter!

Gift Idea 6: Comfy commuter pants for a guy that dresses up for work

Rhone is one of Coulter's new favorite brands. The other day he actually told me that he could "live in anything Rhone". That made my job fairly easy, so I picked out a full gamut of clothing items from their shop. His favorite are the commuter pants which are perfect for a guy who has to dress-up a bit for work but wants to feel casual and comfy. 

Alright guys, that's all I have for you. I hope you got tons of ideas for the man in your life. You can shop all of the products mentioned in the video below or head back to Part 1 of my gift guide for the full list of shopping ideas. Happy holidays!

Holiday Gift Guide for Him: Part 1

Holiday Gift Guide For Him: Part 1

Looking for a gift for your boyfriend, fiance, brother, dad, hubby, man.....? Here's my gift guide for him for the holiday season! 

Gift Idea 1: Comfortable Shoes

I don't care what man you are buying for, they can all agree about one thing: comfort is key. Coulter loves these shoes from Viocin and I like to describe them as "walking in a cloud in heaven"... basically. Guys can be so particular about their shoes and clothing but once they put these puppies on, trust me they will fall in love. That, and the fact you will spend a lot less time massaging those sweaty toes because no woman actually enjoys doing that. Right, ladies? 

Gift Idea 2: Dress-up attire that is actually comfortable

How often have you heard your man, brother or dad complain about having to get dressed up for a holiday gathering? For as much as we love the holiday season for the many dress-up opportunities, men feel equally strong about how stiff and uncomfortable their holiday attire can be. Maybe we should have them walk around around in a pencil dress and 4" heels to feel our pain for a bit? OR... we could be a bit more reasonable and solve the problem with buying them dressy clothes that are as comfortable as their typical jeans and t-shirt uniform is. I love how soft the textures on anything from Mizzen + Mane are, which is where I got Coulter's full Thanksgiving outfit from this year. The men in your life will thank you.  

Gift Idea 3: Male Grooming Products

What is it about the grooming section that is so intimidating to guys? They don't want to actually shop for their own products but they have no issue using our luxury face creams within the confines of our bathroom. One of my go-to gifts is always to buy them something they won't buy themselves such as grooming products for hair/skin/beards/feet/etc. I've included some of my favorites from Jack Black, Bucklers, Oribe, R + Co, Ouai and Perricone. Check out the gift guide below for more details. Also note that the Energizing Scrub from Jack Black is the one item that I always steal from my man's stuff in the shower. It feels amazing and fresh on your face! 

Gift Idea 3: Great Stocking Stuffer

Ok, I know it seems strange BUT how many times have you been annoyed in the shower having to bend over and find the soap that is practically suctioned onto the soap dispenser? I know... you didn't realize how annoying that actually is until right now, did you? Well the Soap on a Rope is kind of the perfect stocking stuffer for just that reason. Such a simple solution that will make any guy smile. 

Gift Idea 4: Long line tops for the tall man

These cotton basics from North and Acruz are essential if you've got a tall guy like me as most of them are longer lines. Is the man in your life shorter than 6'2", no worries, the long line trend is really in right now so it will give him that extra stylish edge. Also, how cool is their logo design?

Alright guys, I hope this helps simplify your holiday shopping. You can shop all of the products mentioned below and stay tuned for Part 2 of my gift guide for guys coming in a few days. Happy shopping!
