Gift Guide for Your New Guy!

Christmas is right around the corner and if you’re anything like me you like to start shopping early (Black Friday and Cyber Monday are perfect for this), but when there is a new guy in your life, you never really know what to get him and by new I am talking you have only been involved with him for about 3-6 months. You don’t want to go too big but you don’t want to come off as cheap. So what do you get the guy that you like? Men are different than women with gifts. We like thoughtfulness, gestures mean way more to us than the actual gift. This is not true for men, their first thought is the usefulness. Yes, men are just as happy as we are to know that we are thinking of them, but getting them something they can’t use 9 times out of 10 will invoke a thanks….. for NOTHING response. He won’t say it but it is all in the awkward grin.

So when getting your new guy a gift there is one golden rule and that is can he actually put it to use. Here are some good gifts that will guarantee appreciation from him and won’t break the bank for you and if all else fails anything techy will keep him pretty happy.

If your guy is a gamer an accessory or a new game for his game system is perfect. It is useful will make him feel like you really know him. It might annoy you at first considering that he will spend hours playing instead of texting you back but at least you will know your gift was a hit!

Retails for $59.99 but it is currently on sale at Bestbuy.com for $44.99 act quick ladies!

$59.99 I haven’t met a guy who could resist Call of Duty.

Ever since Nicki has toned down her look she has been killing red carpet after red carpet. This Alexander Wang number paired with her Manolo Blanik pumps was perfection.

It would not be fair if I did not show the men of the AMAs any appreciation. Nick Jonas looked very 

dapper in his suit, boy has this Jonas brother grown up!

 

I have nothing to wear for Thanksgiving, do you?

Thanksgiving is right around the corner ladies and if you are anything like me you feel like you have NOTHING to wear! There is always that struggle between wearing my sweats to the dinner table and making thanksgiving a production and having to find an outfit that will not have my family looking at me like I’m worthless. Here is an idea ladies, this is close to what I will be wearing this Thanksgiving if I decide to get out of my pajamas!

Good Luck with the outfits girls.The key to any Thanksgiving outfit is comfort. The biker leggings and boots automatically fancy up the white relaxed fit V-neck, and if you get your V-neck a little roomier it will hide the food baby you will be carrying by the time desert rolls around.
Until next time,

Hall-O-Weekend Faves

With one more night left in Hall-o-weekend, we are still waiting to see what some of our favorite celebrities have in store for this last night of the festivities, but so far from what we have seen, they have been going big. From rapper Fabolous and his family with their Addams Family rendition, to Rihanna and her gal pals as ninja turtles. Unlike, every other year the adults were not the main stars of the holiday with baby celebs like North West as a skunk and Blue Ivy as Michael Jackson.

Check out my personal favorite celeb looks from last night!

Want A Body Like Beyonce?

We may not be able to have Bey’s body, but we will be able to workout in clothes by her in the near future!

Beyoncé has entered into a 50-50 partnership with the British retailer Topshop and will be releasing a line of athletic clothing and footwear listed as Parkwood Topshop Athletic LTD. “I could not think of a better partner as I continue to grow the Parkwood business. I have always loved Topshop for its fashion credentials and forward thinking,” said Beyoncé in a statement released by her and her camp. There line is set to be released sometime in 2015…

 

I am not sure how excited you ladies are but if there are any of those fab one pieces she wears on tour I want all parts of it. This new line can inspire all of us to get our Sasha Fierce on at the gym! I am so excited to see what this line looks like!

A Wang X HM… The Clock is Ticking!

I’m not sure if everyone remembers quite like I do, but Rihanna teased us all in September when she stepped out in an outfit from the A Wang x HM collection, two whole months before it was set to be released to be public. Rihanna, left us all dying to see the rest of the collection. October 16th Wang, took it uptown with a star studded fashion show and unveiled the full collection. The collection will be on sale November 6th in stores and online. This line gives me Nomcore meets Goth at the gym!

Check out photos below, What do you guys think? What are your favorite pieces?
