Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for your Bestie!

Carrie Bradshaw said it best, "...friendships never go out of style."  Since Valentine's Day is approaching we thought we would give you some amazing gift ideas (at least we think so) that you can spoil those ladies who have been with you through breakups, babies, and everything in between!

Our puzzle heart necklace is the modern take on the friendship necklace, and is the perfect gift for that BFF that is near or far.  The pieces separated make a gorgeous, chic heart piece but when together they fit perfectly just like brunch and mimosas.

If you really want to make a statement with your bestie than our best friend sweatshirts are perfect!  These cute and casual sweatshirts are super comfy are perfect for your girls' weekend or going out for brunch.

Best friend tattoos are always fun but metallic best friend tattoos, now that's a party! These jewelry tattoos are perfect for a bachelorette party or even a great GNO! The pack comes with a variety of designs so no woman is left behind. 

 

Our friendship jewelry tattoo is a great way to show off who your squad is without leaving any girl behind.  The the design replicates the classic friendship ring yet is chic and modern enough to wear with your everyday outfit.   

 

The stackable friendship ring is our twist on the classic Irish claddagh ring that represents friendship, love and loyalty. It is adorned with a chic crown and heart and made perfectly to be worn together or separately.  Now personally I would just keep this piece all to myself, BUT it does make for a lovely gift to give the other two pieces to the rest of your squad.

 

We can't wait to see what you do to celebrate love and your bestie!  Whether single or not, every Thelma always needs a Louise, and what better way to celebrate those crazy adventures than with a Valentine's day present!

Books to read before Summer ends

As summer comes to a close we are trying desperately to read all the books we ordered from Amazon just so we can give you guys our thoughts and opinions. Unfortunately, we haven't quite finished any of them so we've compiled a list of what is on our nightstands that we are trying to pick up and actually read! If you've read any of these we'd love to hear your take and any advice for picking one, comment below and happy reading!

We do have to put a disclaimer out there that we are suckers for these books! "Yes Please" by Amy Poehler goes through everything from divorce, sex tips, to her impeccable business sense. If we can't go out for a glass of chardonnay with Ms. Poehler, this will have to do!  

Cheryl Strayed goes on a life journey through the Pacific Crest Trail and forges ahead all alone after leaving her life of drug abuse, a failed marriage, and a family crisis. The book has been compared to Eat, Pray, Love, and not only do we love the book, but we always love a good soul searching, happy ending novel.

We read one review that said, "The Girl on the Train" is a "dark, haunting, and depressing psychological thriller." Does this scare anyone else!? We've also heard through friends and book clubs that this is one that we won't be able to put down, so obviously we are up for the challenge.

"The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying up" is one we actually have started reading and if we didn't know any better we'd say this book actually IS magic...maybe it is!? We've desperately needed someone to come along and gives us practical advice on how to clean up our over-saturated lives, i.e. that pile of books on our nightstands...

 

"All the Light We Cannot See" is about a young German orphan boy, and a newly blinded French girl. Both come from very different worlds but have equally awe-inspiring lessons on life and love. With 4.5 out of 5 stars and over 16k reviews on Amazon it was an easy choice to add this gem to our list.

Between "Summer Sisters" and our all time favorite, the hilarious-yet-relatable "Are you there God? It's Me, Margaret" we had order Judy Blume's latest novel. At 77 years young Miss Judy brings forth a tale of a young girl in the 1950's who was present for multiple planes falling from the sky (which Blume actually experienced as a child), and her return as grown adult. The novel takes you through pain, the bond of family and community, and of course a dozen or so life lessons! 

 

 

If you've read any of these please let us know your thoughts!  We'd love to start a new one by Christmas!
