Web Admin 0 57 Article rating: No rating

Sharing lots of ideas for the tween girls you’re shopping for this holiday season! I’d love to hear your ideas in the comments, too. 

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far! We have dinner with the fam and are looking forward to a little Phoenix staycation this weekend. For today’s post, I’m sharing what I think is my favorite gift guide of the year: for tweens! While I have to admit that I do miss the Magnatiles and Melissa and Doug days, it is pretty fun shopping for tweens… even though many of them seem to have better taste than I do. 😉 Shopping for Liv and her friends is so fun right now, and I thought I’d share some of the popular gift requests if you have a tween girl on your holiday list.

As always, if you have any ideas or if you’d share your tween’s gift requests in the comments, that would be amazing!

2023 Holiday Gift Guide for tweens

New Stanley cup

Hatch light. This made a huge difference in my stress levels, so I got one for Liv last year, too. She prefers to have bird sounds wake her up instead of me lol.

Silk pillowcase

Nike platform sneakers

Makeup eraser set

initial pendant necklace

Laneige mini set

Clean beauty set

Skincare headband

Mini skincare fridge 

Aviator Nation hoodie. These are an amazing special occasion gift! I got them for the girls this year for Christmas since they’re always trying to *borrow* mine.

2023 Fitness and Health Gift Guide

Web Admin 0 70 Article rating: No rating

Sharing a holiday gift guide filled with ideas for your health and fitness-loving friends… or yourself. 

Hi friends! How are you? I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far! I taught at a fun event on campus yesterday and we had an amazing holiday dinner with friends.

For today’s post, I’m popping in to share some holiday gift ideas focused on health and wellness. I’m a huge believer that all you need to improve your health is a safe place to walk, some sneakers that fit well, a good water bottle, a plan, and the dedication to stick to the promises you make to yourself. All of these gadgets and extras are an expense, and definitely classified as “nice to have” instead of “need.” At the same time, they can be super fun, provide extra insight into what’s working in your routine, and the PERFECT thing to gift someone you love (including yourself!!)

Here’s a roundup of some of my favorite health and wellness gift ideas at various price points:

2023 Fitness and Health Gift Guide

Walking pad. I use my walking pad and it’s such a great way to get in extra movement and steps, especially during long conference calls (when I don’t have to talk), emails, and watching modules.

HigherDOSE sauna blanket or PEMF Go Mat. These are two of my all-time favorite biohacking products. (You can use the code FITNESSISTA15 for 15% off)


An Aviron rower! This one is definitely a home gym investment, but I LOVE this thing. It’s so fun to row and be able to stream shows from Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and Disney+. I can’t wait to watch the new Bridgerton season in the sauna blanket and on the rower. My review of the Aviron rower is here. 

Water purifier- We use Berkey and Clearly Filtered. We’re getting a Radiant Life whole house system this year!

Oura Ring. The Oura ring provides excellent data on sleep and recovery. You can check out my full review here. 

Air purifier! Clean air and clean water and some of the first

Prime Big Deals Day (the best stuff)

Sharing the best of the best from today and tomorrow’s Prime Day deals!  

Hi friends! How are you? I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far! The kids are home from school for fall break, and while we’re staying in town, I’m definitely looking forward to some fun adventures. This week, we plan on strolling Botanical Gardens, taking a family hike, and going to see the new baby sloth at the zoo! We’re also going to get a little shopping done.

Today is the huge Amazon sale, and it’s the perfect time for the holidays! I’m trying to get as much done as possible early this year, which is what I say every year, but I’m determined. I used to love the frantic energy of last-minute shopping – it gave me a rush, what can I say lol – but no longer. It’s too stressful. This year, I’m trying to set myself up for success and blast through our list, so I can kick back with a lil mug of hot cocoa and watch Christmas movies without the shopping list in my head.

If you’re shopping early for family, friends, or yourself, I’ve scoured all of the sale in advance to share the best stuff with you!! I hope you get some good ideas here, and I’d love to hear what you’re shopping for and what you’ve found. It’s also a great time to stock up on home essentials, appliances, and beauty deals. Everything is listed below!

Web Admin 0 260 Article rating: No rating

Sharing some gift ideas for all of the ladies in your life! Moms, grandmas, nanas, friends, mom figures, new moms, whoever you want to shower with something special this Mother’s Day. I also wanted to recognize here that I know Mother’s Day can be hard and sad for various reasons; please know I’m holding you in my heart. 

Hi friends! How was the weekend? I hope you had a wonderful one. Things are looking up over here on the conjunctivitis front. Thanks to some steroid drops from the eye doc, I don’t look like a demon anymore. I’ve never seen anything like this in my life, but will be so glad to have it behind me. We hung out at home this week – the Pilot ended up getting sick, too – but I hope that you enjoyed the weekend and had some fun!

For today’s post, I wanted to share some Mother’s Day gift ideas. I’m not requesting a lot gift-wise this year – let’s be real, I’ve been online shopping a little toooooo much since I’ve been cooped at home lol – but am absolutely looking forward to celebrating all of the women in our family we love so much.

I thought I’d share some ideas if you’re shopping, and I’d love to hear your gift guide picks, too!

Flowers and plants:

Venus et fluer flowers. I get ad-targeted for these on Facebook ALL THE TIME and they’re SO GORGEOUS. The roses last an entire year!

Heart shaped succulent planter. Love succulents, and since they’re so hardy, it doesn’t matter so much if you have a black thumb.

This customizable concrete planter with a little air plant.


Personalized + jewelry:
