Fun Stuff Friday: Pop Culture Gifts Under $50

POP culture gift guide 2014
1 - Taylor Swift 1989 (Deluxe Edition), Target Exclusive
2 - Taylor Swift 1989 Tee
3 - Geo Hashtag Midi Ring Set
4 - Hipster Ariel™ Sweater
5 - Novel Tee Sweatshirt in Jay
6 - Starbucks Iced Coffee iPhone Cover
7 - ASOS T-Shirt with Breaking Bad Heisenberg Print
8 - Khaleesi Bracelet
9 - Galaxy Good Vibes Stud Earrings

Honestly, this whole post was inspired by Heisenberg. I needed an excuse to talk about this Heisenberg tee. You see, I just finished watching Breaking Bad (I know, late to the party) so I'm going through binge watch withdrawal. Thankfully I've got lots of fall tv to keep up with.

And hey, my favorite Disney princess turned 25 this week! The Little Mermaid is one of the most beloved Disney characters of all time, and Hipster Ariel in particular is huge on the internet. I thought this Hipster Ariel sweater was so cute and so now.

And Taylor Swift's 1989 is per-fec-tion. Get the Target deluxe edition, which includes an extra song and three tracks that go into her songwriting process. I've been a Swift fan since Teardrops on my Guitar and I'm kinda heartbroken that she left country, but seriously the girl can do no wrong in my eyes. Love her, forever and always. Plus, I know she'll go back to country one day. Country will take her back.

Hope you enjoyed these pop culture gift suggestions!

Fashion Happy Hour: Halloween Edition

The day before Halloween there was a special, Halloween edition of Fashion Happy Hour at the LMNT in Wynwood. Valentina, who puts together every one of them, asked me and a few other bloggers to style some models for the fashion show at the end. This was my first time styling anyone besides my close friends and family, so I was kinda nervous! But I had so much fun hanging out with my fellow Miami blogger ladies and with my good friend Mariana (one of my therapist friends). Here are some of the pictures from that night. The grainy ones were taken with my Nikon or phone, and the really high-quality ones were taken by Paul (PH Balance Photography) or Louis (The Louis Collection).

Here are some more of my gift picks for you today! 
If you're a regular around here you know that ModCloth is one of my favorite sites because they offer such a wide range of classic, quirky, and vintage items. Every holiday season they put together this neat gift guide with lots and lots of categories like $20 and under gifts, $50 and under gifts, gifts for guys, gifts for "geeks," and so on. 

I chose some items from this year's gift guide (here) to highlight some of my favorite things about ModCloth--like the Charter School Cardigan, seen here in "Dots," which is the perfect little cardigan for work or play. I know because I have it in mustard and wear it all the time. I also love their classic, vintage-inspired sunglasses and accessories. But my absolute favorite things from ModCloth are the quirky pieces that help us express who we are and what we love, like their travel and animal-themed goodies and retro decor. I gifted the map necklace to my cousin Allie last year and she loved it. And the travel wallet pictured here is on my personal holiday wishlist this year (take note, friends! :D).

So in sum, their vast collection of unique gifts is the perfect place to find something to wow your favorite people. Plus, there's always tons of fun things on sale, too.

Fun Stuff Friday: Gifts for the Animal Lover

I always like to gift with a purpose. To do that, I think of what my friends and family like, what our relationship is like, and how I can represent that in a gift. I had a couple of people in mind (and myself.. hehe) when I put together this quirky and fashionable set of gift ideas for animal lovers. I've always liked animals so it's no surprise I like them on my stuff too.

So are you a dog person or a cat person?
