The shirt jacket (shaket) is everywhere now, in every price point, so I wanted to share a few of my favorite save and splurge picks with you, in case  you're looking to try one out, or need to add more to your closet. I'm wearing my favorite Ruby Jacket from Free People in these images and have it in several colors. It's a bit of a splurge but I've had my first one for years. They wash great and transition in to Spring and Fall perfectly. 




Save on these (all under $60)

When it's colder, I like to pair my shirt jacket with a thick sweater, and because it's oversized, even sweaters with bat sleeves fit. I throw this on over a midi dress in the Fall and Spring.

This gift guide is a compilation of my beauty favorites right now. I use each of these daily or weekly, and would recommend them to anyone (guys or girls with any skin or hair type). Please feel free to ask questions if you interested in something but are not sure before purchasing.

This is one of the newest products from FOREO and I'm obsessed. The BEAR a full-facial toning device with advanced microcurrents to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. My skin truly does feel firmer after using daily for about four weeks straight. Splurge-worthy for sure!!! P.s., there is also a mini version great for travel.
This tool will help exfoliate your skin, remove peach fuzz and leave your skin feeling silky smooth. I use mine about once every two weeks. I can tell a big difference after using it not just with the feel of my skin, but with how flawless my foundation goes on. Each tool comes with 10 blades. 

The smell of this shower oil is incredible. There's a reason why it's a bestseller and one is purchased every minute worldwide. Perfect for anyone in the family. Jared was the first person to start using this, and now I love it too. 

The ultimate luxury hand cream. It's one of my favorite scents ever. Truly a steal at $24 for a 2-pack right now. 

This is a highlighter that will make you glow without having any glitter or too much shimmer. A little goes a long way and there are a few color options. Champagne Pop is my shade. 

I try to use this once a week. Nothing makes my skin softer and my pores smaller than this mask. 

I have the Afterglow Lip Balm in several colors now. It's a pop of color with a sheer texture that is very hydrating. In the past I've had to use a lip primer before using color, but I don't have to with the Afterglow Lip Balm. You'll want to put one in every purse, I promise!

If you've been following me for a while, you know I'm an avid Olaplex user. I use these products weekly to repair the damage I've done with bleach and heat, and to strengthen my hair. Bonus, these make my hair softer and feel thicker!

This spray makes me feel like I'm at a spa. It's smells great, moisturizes and sets my make-up. 

On my wishlist. This roller is supposed to relax your face and give it a radiant glow. I'm definitely getting one this season and can't wait to try it out.

This gift guide includes so many products I'm already using with Gwen, and a few additional items that are on my list. Two products we use a lot, are the Baby Bjorn Bouncer and the Wood Activity Gym. These are both really great gifts for someone with a baby. They'll be able to use it from the newborn stage up to two-years-old. Bird Rock Baby Mocassins have been a family favorite ever since Winston was born. They have so many cute colors for boys and girls. Happy Holiday Shopping!

Winston is three and a half now, and we are so excited for him to not only understand the reason for the season, but also be able to open his own presents and help decorate the tree. Last year he still didn't completely understand, and would start to unwrap something and stop halfway. We're looking forward to seeing his eyes light up when he opens a few of these presents. I hope this gift guide helps you shop for your little one.

Gwen was born a week early, so the final touches on her nursery were put on hold for awhile. I have to say, this is one of my all-time favorite posts. The nursery is done, and it just might be my favorite room in the house. Everything is linked, and I hope you love it as much as we do!

I fell in love with these boho decals from Urban Walls, and knew we were going to reuse Winston's crib, so that's how I got started and decorated the room around those. A little boho glam is what I was going for. I have the full set of decals.

Acrylic and gold dresser knobs are Hamilton Bowes.

I've listed all parts purchased to assemble the hanging racks below. The only item I couldn't link, was the wood. I bought 36-inch long cherry oak boards, and cut them to fit my space. I chose the cherry oak, because it's super strong and won't crack as you drill into the wood. The boards are one inch thick and 12 inches deep. We cut each board to about 30 inches to fit the wall and allow a few inches on each side and a few inches in between the board. You can really used any wood. Don't feel like you have to use cherry oak. I'd steer clear of pine since it's so fragile and splits easily. It's worth the extra money for quality wood. 


Hanging Racks

I hope this gives new moms or anyone decorating a nursery a little bit of inspiration.

Stroller Fan 
I keep our fan in the bottom of the stroller in the back of the car. It comes with a charging cord you can use in the car and runs several hours without being charged. Comes in four great color options. 

Lollipop Portable Camera 
I recommend this portable camera to every mom. If Gwen falls asleep in a spot that I don't have a camera, I just set up the Lollipop and have a camera wherever I need it. Perfect for at home or traveling. The camera alerts you when there's noise or crying (even if your phone is on silent or closed), which is amazing. 

Monte Design Rockwell Bassinet
This bassinet is probably the prettiest piece of furniture in our home. It's not only beautiful, but also comfortable for Gwen and easy to clean. The mattress is waterproof, and comes with two 100% organic cotton sheets. I love that the basket fabric is easy to unzip and remove (it's machine washable). Because this bassinet is very lightweight, I'm able to easily move it around for her to sleep, nap or hang out in. It goes from our room where she sleeps, to the bathroom when big brother is bathing and downstairs in my office while I work. I couldn't be happier with our bassinet choice.

Pacifier Sanitizer 
This portable sanitizer fits in my diaper bag and sanitizes baby girl's pacifiers in under a minute. 

Wipeable Changing Mat
Finding cute wipeable covers for changing mats is tough. I love this modern looking changing pad because it's a nice color and is wipeable. I was worried it be cold on Gwen's skin but was happy to find the material is more foam-like (not plastic), so it doesn't get cold. We use it without the mobile, but that can be easily reattached if we want to use it in the future. 

Happ Brand Diaper Bag
I did a lot of research on diaper bags this time around. This diaper bag is such pretty design and color (comes in two other colors), and fits so much. With the wide design, I find myself finding things so much quicker than previous diaper bags. No more digging. It can be worn as a backpack or over the shoulder. Love!
Baby Carrier
This carrier is made of really nice material, and is really easy to get Gwen in and out of. There are magnets on the top straps to make things easier (a feature I've never seen before on a carrier) and pockets to fit a diaper or two and wipes (such a good idea). They do have solid colors, but I think the on trend leopard print is so fun!
