Father’s Day is next weekend, have you thought about what to get him? If not, don’t worry I’ve got you covered!  This year I decided to put a bit of an update on the traditional Father’s Day gifts as there are plenty of younger Dads out there and I don’t know about you but my Dad and my husband are not big tie wearers and they would much rather get something they could put to use.  Here are my suggestions and why I chose them.

GROOMING: Anything to do with grooming is a great gift as most guys just don’t think to buy that stuff for themselves or it’s the last thing they really want to spend money on.  It’s also a great way to motivate them to shape up and shave! Throw in a candle and you’ve got yourself a man spa!

ENTERTAINMENT: Record players are coming back in a major way, put some nostalgia into your gift with one of these and your Dad’s favorite band from his youth, your spouse would love this gift too!  You also can’t go wrong with a wooden caddy filled with his favorite craft beer or a bottle of his favorite spirits and a pack of granite rocks or stainless steel thermos to keep it cool.

GADGETS:  Keychains, knives, phone cases, wallets, you name it and they will love it!  Guys love little stuff like this to help keep them organized or replace the ones they’ve lost.

TRAVEL:  Are they planning a trip soon?  Get them to get rid of that beat up travel gear and start fresh with a duffle bag, Dopp kits are a great option too!

CLOTHING:  Belts, hats, comfortable sneakers are all things that most likely need to be replaced in his wardrobe.  It’s a nice way of saying it’s time for a change…

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Just a smudge.... Have you ever used sage/smudge sticks to clear out negative energy? I know it sounds crazy but I absolutely swear by this method!!! Sometimes you just need a smudge, ya know?! P.S. you can now shop my looks and decor via @liketoknow.it

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!
