Holiday Gift Guide + SB Giveaway

Raise your hand if you couldn't wait for Black Friday to begin your Holiday shopping (my hand is raised high). Raise your hand if you'd like to get started on said shopping but perhaps need a few suggestions as well as a few pretty spectacular deals (my hand is still raised). Raise your hand if you'd like to do most of your Holiday shopping from the comfort of your own home (guess whose hand is still raised?). And, raise your hand if you'd like to do said shopping with a piping hot RED cup filled with your favorite beverage from Starbucks (yep, my hand is still up there).

I'm all for supporting small and independent businesses. Lucky for me - and YOU - I was fortunate to team up with some pretty amazing women who have kindly agreed to share their goodies, and some pretty sweet discounts to accompany those goodies, which you won't find anywhere else. There's also a nice little giveaway to go along with all this shopping…

Let's get to it:

The Mango Mermaid
These hand crafted items are swoon worthy. I literally want every anchor and sail boat. 
Those anchors would make the most amazing Christmas ornaments!

Mary Kay // Ashley Clark, consultant
