Good Morning, ladies! I am in New York this morning and having the most fabulous time with one of my best and oldest (not that she’s old, but that we have known each other forever) friends. She lives in Alabama, and we have kept in very good touch for thirty-four years. We have been through a lot together, and I adore her so much. It is so fun to be in New York with her and have her all (almost) to my self. Her daughter lives here, so we spent some time with her too! Can you believe that it’s that time of the year again? Have you started shopping or creating a list yet? Today, I am partnering with Bloomingdale’s to show you some of my favorite gifts for the girls in your life.

Gifts for the Girls

We all have girls in our lives that we give gifts to so, I picked out some of my favorite gifts in all price ranges that might get you on your shopping way. I love Bloomingdale’s for everything gift-giving because I can find so many great things for everyone on my list! Let’s get started with some of the products that I ordered. A great stocking stuffer or gift to give a traveler is the Jet Set Travel Essentials Trio from Lano ($27). The set includes travel sizes of a day cream, glycerin cleanser, and leave-on recovery mask. I am obsessed with this “free of everything” brand.

The second item I love is the Pai Skincare Natural Treasures-Limited-Edition Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil ($44). This oil is overflowing with antioxidants and improves firmness, the appearance of dry patches, blemishes, dull skin tone, fine lines, scars, and sun damage. I think it does everything! It comes in a cute little packaged ornament style box. This is one of those products that is for any age.

This Zebra Print Bag is Adorable

My third item is this 100% exclusive Zebra Print Crossbody Bag with a removable strap($68) and made with real calf hair. I love this bag because when carried as a crossbody, it has a more casual feel, but when the strap is removed, it looks like a perfect luncheon or night out bag.

The fourth item I purchased for gift-giving is the beautiful Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow Pallete. The colors are beautiful, and this is an excellent palette to travel with (I may keep this!).

Number five-item is the AQUA Star Intarsia Cashmere Sweater ( on sale right now for $138.60) that I am wearing. My daughter tried to swipe it from me last week, but no luck on her part. Maybe I will get it for her too!

The BEST For Last

The last item in my arsenal at the moment is my favorite. How gorgeous are these 14K White Gold Diamond Starburst Stud Earrings from Meira T ($470)? They are the perfect “everyday” earring and are so sparkly!

I have found so many fantastic gifts at Bloomingdale’s that I created (well, my assistant did!) two collages below with great finds. I hope that you all will be inspired to start your holiday shopping or at least start making your lists.
