Hi friends and Happy Holidays!

Just a few months ago most of us were lucky enough to see an amazing solar eclipse which sparked a new craze for moon phases, star gazing, and well everything space related!  Instead of your everyday gift guide, I wanted to post this one geared more specifically towards the moon and constellation obsessed!

When it comes to the ladies, you can’t go wrong with jewelry so I picked some pretty star stud earrings that will add sparkle to holiday attire and this really cool crescent pendant necklace that looks to me like a piece of art.

I personally love moon phases, I’ve been obsessed with them since I was a little girl. I found this moon phase towel set to be the perfect hostess gift.

Over the years I’ve found you can never go wrong with a good personalized mug.  Find out their sign, add some cocoa mix and marshmallows and you’ve got a cozy gift anyone would enjoy!

Ornaments are a must during the holidays.  I loved the hammered metal crescent moon as well as the constellation medallion.  Both a subtle and unique and bound to please.

What are the holidays without comfy sweaters?  The sweater I’ve featured here is super soft and snuggly for those stargazing nights!

The last items I included on this gift guide was this set of astronomy notebooks.  These can be great for writing down coordinates or for everyday general notes and the detailing on the covers are so interesting. 




I hope you find this gift guide helpful to find unique gifts for your friends that are totally out of this world! Have you started your holiday shopping yet?  I’d love to hear from you, please feel free comment below!

Cheers- Ashley Nicole

  • Honey, I’m home... What’s the first thing you take off when you get home? I’m pretty well known for piling up all my goods on a chair or on the dining room table. It’s my way of decompressing after a long day. Well that and wine of course 😏

P.S. My sweet friend from @figandopal sent me these amazing handmade earrings and I’m so excited to take these babies out for a spin! Use code: COTTAGEBOUND FOR 30% off when you purchase her goods!

  • It’s been awhile since I’ve introduced myself and I’d like to make it a little more personal. My name is Ashley Nicole and I love sharing my life and style with you, but what I love most of all is connecting with you! It’s pretty awesome that these little squares allow us to communicate and build relationships with people all around the world without actually meeting them in person don’t you think? So here goes nothing! I’ll start by sharing 10 fun facts about me that you may not know and in return I’d love to hear something about you in the comments below! It can be literally anything the point here is to make a connection and I’d bet that we have more in common than you think! Ready, set, let’s get social!
1. My front tooth is fake! Yep, you heard me fake! When I was in 4th grade I slipped on the tile in my school bathroom and busted my front tooth. I’ll be sharing more about this as well as my before and after, what whitening product I used in between replacements and so on soon.
2. I’m terribly horrified of snakes.  I can’t even wear a snake print, they just freak me out man!
3. I work full-time as an assistant buyer, floor merchandiser, and social media manager for a retail company. 
4. My biggest pet peeve is when my husband leaves our empty tea pitcher in the fridge and doesn’t tell me we need to make more. Sweet tea is also my caffeine of choice.
5. I’m really really close with my Mom and we often get accused of being sisters because our age is so close. She had me at 16!
6. Some of my favorite foods are avocados, coconut, mushrooms, and cilantro. My husband hates all of them except cilantro. So agreeing on meals can be a bit challenging at times. 
7. I love the fall and Halloween! I blame my Mom, @marthastewart, and the historical district I grew up trick or treating in. 
8. You probably already know this one, but I loooove hats! Plus they are great for when your roots are growing and you’re in between hair appointments, ha!
9. I’ve never had a broken a bone. 🤞😬
10. I just recently discovered my love for house plants a few years ago. Now I can’t imagine my home without them! 
Your turn! Tell me something good! 😉
  • Going through some old photos today and reminiscing about our trip to California a few years back. We stopped in Malibu and ate at this little gem I found on Instagram! I couldn’t get over how perfect the decor was and every seat came with a view. Let’s just say I wish I was there having brunch right now!
  • Saturday strolls and flowers to hold ✨🌼 #lovemylottas #springhassprung #springstyle
