Christmas Gift Guide for Ladies Under $30!

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas over here at the Shaneyfelt household!  I took down all of our fall decor Monday night and then last night started slowly pulling down Christmas decor.  I have a feeling it'll take me all week to decorate.

I'm also excited to share my first Christmas post of the season!

I love looking at gift guides because not only do I get great ideas on gifts for friends and family, but I also get ideas on gifts for myself!  Today I'm sharing a gift guide for gifts under $30!  These could be great stocking stuffers, gifts for your family members, or great gifts for girls in your Bible study!

Smashbox lipstick set - Buying new lipstick always makes me feel like I'm changing my look without spending a ton of money.  Smashbox is a great brand of lipstick, too.  I love that this gift set is a sample of lots of different colors, but without spending lots of money because remember--it's under $30!!

Skinnytaste cookbook - This is the perfect gift for the woman who is ready to change her eating habits after the New Year and eat healthy!  Skinnytaste started off as a blog of recipes but has evolved into multiple cookbooks.  Of all the recipes I've tried from Skinnytaste, they have all tasted really good!  This cookbook is also perfect because it's for quick meals.

tassel keychain - I always like having a keychain on my keys but the one I have currently is yuck!  Lately, I've been eyeing tassel keychains but haven't come across any in stores.  This would be a cute stocking stuffer or even gift to a teacher or friend.  It comes in a few different colors.

tunic top - I wore my black top yesterday and even posted it on IG!  This top would be a great gift for your mom or MIL because it is perfect for any age.  I love how long it is because I can wear it with leggings and it still be appropriate.

Sephora face mask set - My friend Hailey got me a face mask sampler set from Sephora from my birthday and it's been the best gift ever!  I'm getting to sample 8 different face masks to see which one works best for my face before I spend a larger chunk of money on a full size one.  No one usually buys these gifts for ourselves, but we all need to be pampered every once in a while..right?!

iPhone case - I love the classic look of this marbled phone case--this is definitely my next phone case when I upgrade my phone!

Eats cookbook - I LOVE this cookbook!  Shay's stories before each recipe are fun to read, and I love how she's divided these recipes out by month.  This is a gift I plan on giving this Christmas, and I know any woman I give this to will love it!

coffee travel mug - I currently carry my coffee in a smaller Yeti, but I want something cuter.  This is a Kate Spade mug and I love all of her cute little sayings.  Not sure if the woman you're buying for drinks coffee?  This would be perfect for cold drinks, too!

infinity scarf - Hurry and buy these while they are still 40% off!!  That makes them under $9 a scarf and you cannot beat that!  I have 3 of these scarves and they are my favorites to wear.  Need easy gifts this year?  This is it!  They are currently backordered, but will be in before Christmas.

What are some of your favorites gifts to buy for the ladies in your life?

A Weekend Spent in Enemy Territory

Monday, November 13, 2017

When you read the title of today's blog post, you were probably confused--enemy territory..what?

Enemy territory = Auburn.

Yep.  This Alabama grad and Alabama fan spent the AU/GA game weekend in Auburn and it was a madhouse.  My best friend and her husband recently relocated to Auburn due to a new job, so I ventured down Friday morning to visit!  

Even though Dustin (who is a huge AL fan) went to Auburn, I never knew him in college so my only visit to Auburn was once in high school to watch a football game with a friend and her family.  Auburn is a quaint little town--and Opelika is the cutest--but it's not Tuscaloosa, and Tuscaloosa will always be my favorite!

 We ate lunch at Hamilton's after driving around 30 minutes searching for a parking space.  I mentioned to Janie that it was too bad we weren't in college and knew all the good places to park where no one else did aka a back alley way.  We used to have some pretty reliable parking places in downtown Tuscaloosa in case we couldn't find an actual parking space.

Hamilton's was really good!  I had blackened Mahi fish tacos and Janie had a toasted chicken salad sandwich and lobster bisque.

 This picture was taken a little before midnight, and I'm happy to note that we weren't the oldest people out. We look tired because we didn't nap before going out that night--anyone else used to do that?

 The next morning was a lazy morning of drinking coffee and watching College Gameday

Each year Janie and I get together either in November or December to make a holiday themed treat.  This year we decided to try making iced sugar cookies that were pieces of pumpkin pie.  I will say, they tasted AMAZING and turned out looking pretty good.  Next time we'll use actual piping bags instead of ziplocs with the tips cut off ha!  #improvising

Not bad for being iced with ziploc baggies!

Who's glad it's Friday??

This girl is!  I've been looking forward to this day for a while now--we're off school today because of Veteran's Day AND I'm headed down to Auburn to visit my bff since she moved there in September.  It just so happens that I'll be there during the biggest football game ever but we're Alabama fans so #nobigdeal right?

AND I want to say Happy Veteran's Day to my favorite veteran, my dad, who served in the Air Force!  I'm so thankful to everyone who has served or serves in the military to protect our freedoms!

I've got lots of FAVORITES for y'all today and I'm starting with my FAVORITE announcement.....

 We had some time to kill before church Sunday night so we stopped in Books a Million to look at books.  Dustin has been obsessed with Dave Ramsey lately, so he found a book by some guy that's on Dave Ramsey's Youtube show.  I have to listen to lots of Dave Ramsey talk all the time...anyone else?

 I'm DYING to get our pictures back for our Christmas cards!!  My sister took them Sunday after lunch and I have a feeling they will be my FAVORITE!  Now to decide on a card...

I'm also deciding on my Christmas list to give to Dustin.  I really want a pair of Ugg house slippers so which ones are more practical/will I love more?
**I haven't decided on a color yet, but first I need to decide on a style.

 My friend Hailey and I are obsessed really like Loverly Grey.  As in, we constantly send each other her IG photos or stories.  I sent this to Hailey the other day because it is part of her collaboration with a boutique so when I checked the price on the day it debuted, I found out it was over $200....okay, no.

.....aaaaaand I sent this to my friend Emily after we found out Mallory Ervin is having a baby and we had the longest text convo about how we couldn't tell she was pregnant.  Then I saw this on IG stories so I circled her belly haha!  She hid it well!  We both love her Youtube videos and they are some of my favorites!

And one last thing--I'm looking for really healthy snack ideas that will fill me up but still taste good.  I'm a weirdo and don't really like fruit, so none of that junk 😂
