Stocking Stuffers for Her + Meet Kelly!

First, I would like to thank everyone that texted, tweeted, and commented in regards to yesterday's post! It was just one of "those days" and all of the love from the blogging community truly makes my heart swell... It grew three sizes that day (name that movie!). Seriously, thank you all.

stocking stuffers


I don't know about you all, but one of my favorite Christmas traditions was opening my stocking on Christmas morning.

"Santa" is great about filling my stocking with a few practical things like razor blade refills, face wash, travel size deodorant, and other hygienic necessities. These may seem mundane, but I personally love getting stuff like that in my stocking.

Two things that are always in my stocking (and I hope that never changes) is nail polish and candy. You can seriously never have enough nail polish (and I'm always looking for new fun colors) and I don't really think I need to say anything about the candy. Who doesn't love candy? My favorite are Reese's cups or the Christmas tree ones. 

Some other fun things include this portable USB charger, Vera Bradley mirror keychain and lanyard, some cute ear buds, or some personalized jewelry like this Aries bangle from Alex and Ani. Some other great places to get personalized jewelry is Fifth and Mae or The Shine Project (both have adorable initial necklaces).

If you're still at a loss as to what you should put in someone's stocking, scratch off lottery tickets and $5-$10 gift cards to her favorite places are simple and fun.

What are your favorite stocking stuffers?

Linking up with Whitney for #backthatazzup Friday. This song (and of course some DMX) seriously got me pumped up in the gym yesterday.

Today I want to introduce you to Kelly, from Petite Ramblings! I knew I would like Kelly the moment I saw that her middle name was also "Louise" because it's an awesome name only reserved for awesome people!


Kelly recently started the "Paleo" diet (or lifestyle, whatever you want to call it) and she has posted some amazing recipies. My favoites are the roasted chicken and the paleo breakfast bites, they both look amazing and super simple and would be good even if you aren't paleo. Which, by the way, I never could do 100% because I love cheese too much. And pasta. If you're ever searching for something to do check out her hilarious list of 7 things to do when you're bored. Kelly can also get pretty deep, like when she wrote about why she may never be a mom or when she lost her childhood pet, Becky (really a tear jerker). So if you haven't met Kelly yet, do it NOW. You can find her via:

If "Santa" ever stops filling my stocking I'mma be pissed. Even if "Santa" is me. My mom helps Jarrod surprise me with a few things every year, though.

razor blade refills is a brilliant idea! my mom always shoved so much candy in ours, it was like halloween again but without all the work.

we're in the Louise club! and Ashten and I are in the 0616 birthday club with 2pac. hashtag gangsta.
