Grown Up Valentines Day Gifts

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays I usually send all my gals and best guys Valentines Day cards. This is a great year to show people you love them. Here’s some adult Valentine goodie bags that are useful and cute.

Yuzu Soap Aloe Vera Bar Soap – sticking with the Aloe you Vera much theme. These little bars are amaze balls. The lavender scented one will give you the romance you are looking for and them an amazing shower experience.

Heartfelt by Anthropologie Ayurvedic Valentine Bar Soap – super cute heart shaped soaps covered in sheep’s wool. There are subtle scented in pink, mint and orange scented. These puppies are kinda expensive at $16.50 a pop but on Anthropologie’s website you can find a version on sale that are just as popping. That’s what I did at $5.97. I bought the goats milk and jasmine and am going to through them in my mom and aunts Valentine basket.

lush Foot Pumice – when you think lush you usually think expensive. Well these little things are about $6 bucks and last a pretty long time. That’s the same you would pay at Anywhere for a pumice. It smells delicious. That’s not the only product that is inexpensive from there and a great gift. Grab some charity pot quarters for a good cause to give out and then Grab a hand mask, shower steamer and a naked oil for yourself. PS: they also have watermelon sugar lip scrub *wink wink*

The Good Patch B12 Awake – there are different types of patches but I like the awake. If your in your 20’s you should know how important B12 is to you especially when your conquering your day. You can find these anywhere really and the price ranges from $5-12.

2021 Blues Already

Just ignore the negative vibes that are out here and lets continue to try and get these Resolutions accomplished. Here are some tips on how to make sure you actually start and complete your news years resolutions!

Tip 1 – Dont make the resolution to unattainable. If your goal is to workout, start with a walk.

Tip 2 – Get an Agenda. Organization is a way to keep the anxiety at bay. Get a paper journal or just tell Alexa.

Tip 3 – Turn off the News. Basically we are all sick of it. Its to much! Cant take it! Make sure to continue to get your google updates or whatever have you in case something really goes down but other than that. TURN THAT JUNK OFF!

Tip 4 – Social Media pause. Take a week off from peering into other peoples lives and sometimes not feeling so great about your own. Take some time off, to appreciate your life and actually live it.

Tip 5 – Donate your time. Do some charity, even if its with your family. Especially if it is with your family. Hang out with your little cousin, take out your aunties trash and bring her a donate. Or go to your local dog shelter and sit with dogs; drop food off, there are a million ways to help. Healing starts from within!

Good luck this year surviving the Blues!

Quarantine Valentines Day Gifts for Men or Women

Every year I go crazy trying to find something special and unique for Valentines Day to gift to my other half. This year I have decided to put a few things together to quench all my Valentine’s Day thirsts. I’ll give you a Budget version for those of us who still don’t have a job yet and an option to buy everything you need. Gifts are both for women and men, have fun and happy Valentines Day!

  1. Shower Steamers: You can buy these cuties at PaperSource $14. Even men like the shower to smell like a heavenly spa. Budget Version, make your own, use Lemon & Eucalyptus for a manly scent he will love! Cost is approximately $10.

2. Bar Soap: If your man is anything like mine he refuses to use liquid soap. Duke Cannon has amazingly fun scents for men like – smells like productivity, smells like accomplishment, smells like victory, and big ass bourbon soap. You can find them at Ulta for $8. Budget version make your own, you use the similar ingredients as the shower bomb.

3. Dollar Store Valentines Games: Do something different we all know yall been in the house together the entire quarantine. Grab some small valentine dice and actually use them this year; see fuzzy handcuffs, grab them! Throw them in the box. Want to go further – decorate his door go crazy! Its not always about spending the most money, sometimes its just about making the person feel special even a little embarrassed if need be.

4. Switch your look up: This one is free. Get a wig or if you have been in sweatpants, no matter how cute they are, get your red carpet on and when he comes home or gets out of the shower surprise him with someone new. Not that he’s sick of you or anything just saying this is fun, even if you have more of a comedic relationship than sensual you both will get a good laugh.

5. Hanky Panky Panty Rose: A tad bit expensive at $29.95, but what a cute idea!! They come in 3 different colors and are stretchy lace. One issue is it says one size fits most, but still an awesomely cute gift for your lady.

6. Collage.com Picture blanket – I have used other sites but i really love this one! They have great coupons especially for your first time. Speedy service, great communication, they send tons of emails before and after you receive shipment. I suggest getting cozy fleece, so you and your significant other can cozy up! If they are a traveler get a small one so they can use it with them when they go.

7. Touch Bracelet: For the long distant relationship you can get these shnazzy bracelets that when you touch them they light up, so the other person will know your thinking about them. Very cost affective, $8 at uncommongoods.com.

8. Adrenaline Promotions: I live in Vegas so everyone loves to ride road bicycles, I found this place on Amazon, and wish I had found it sooner. It has the best college team cycling jerseys! Not only that they have states ect, I just love their jerseys. I intend to order one soon so cant speak on quality, just know if your other half is a cyclist and a super fan, they got you! They are quite expensive but I have yet to find anything like it anywhere else.

How to stay out of the COVID Holiday Slump

No one likes a Grinch…especially this time of year, with everything going on I know its easy to get caught up in a pity party. No jobs, isolation and a global pandemic try your best not to feel totally down about the Holidays this year. Here are some tips on how to stay away from the slump this year.

Tip 1: Get out of the house – I know we are in isolation however, take a walk outside. The weather has a great way of making you feel the season. Its great to feel the crisp winter air on your cheeks.

Tip 2: Get a scented candle or air freshner – Dont you just love walking into your home and it smelling like a Merry Mimosa or Marshmello Heaven! This is such an easy tip. Get a seasonal scented candle. It makes it easy to want to get festive when it smells like your mom is making her famous Christmas Cookies in the kitchen. My suggestion is Bath & Body works. There 3 wick candles and wallflowers are amazing but they are very very strong. If you have allergies suggestion- Scentsy Berry and Bright is great.

Tip 3: Go Christmas Decoration Hunting – There is an App for that, if you can believe it! Since so many people are at home this year the Christmas decoration are out of sight this year! Just drive around and hunt them down! Take a late night trip with your significant other and bring some snacks along for the ride!

Tip 4: Fake Fireplace – If you dont really want to decorate this year here is a great way to get cozy. This fireplace ranges in sizes. I have a tiny condo so I bought the smallest one, and let me tell you it brings the holiday cheer without having to fuss with a ton of decorations. Hang your stocking around it and Wal-lha, Feeling FESTIVE!

Tip 5: Bake cookies – When I say bake I mean, go grab the Pilsbury kind thats in the refrigerator section. Already made dough, in ‘cutouts’ with Holiday shapes is an easy activity to do. Grab some cream cheese white frosting, food dye, and invite all your friends (well the entire 10 people you are legally allowed to have in your home) over for a cookie decorating and exchange.
