Making your list and checking it twice….last minute Christmas gifts



Many of us have found ourselves making lists and checking them twice. Yes, it is that time of year again. You know, that time of year where you find yourself over indulging in foods. I might add, those office holiday parties sure don’t help. They just encourage us to eat more. Let’s not forget the seasonal foods that you find yourself making excuses to eat because you know once the holidays are over, you will not be able to get them again until next year this time. As I was saying, it is that time of year where you find yourself eating a little more, humming a little more and shopping a little more. Since I mentioned humming, my favorite holiday songs are Baby It’s Cold Outside and All I Want For Christmas Is You. It really is crunch time for us taking on the role of Santa Claus.  So, if you still haven’t found the perfect gift for those special people in your life, there is no need to fret. I provided you with a list of gifts below that will surely put a smile on the face of those people you plan to give gifts too.

When it comes to men, I always think gift cards are great choices. I think gift cards would be a great choice for a woman or child as well. Now a days you can get a gift card for clothing stores, restaurants, spas and even grocery stores. Tablet PC’s are very popular and every member of the family can use them from the very young to the very old. If you give a tablet or know someone with a tablet, Papier de Maison’s tablet covers are a great way for them to protect their tablet. Phone covers are also great gifts. They also come in a variety of colors and designs. Portable music players are great for the music lovers in your life. Personalized accessories are a great way to make someone feel special. You can engrave initials on everything from golf clubs, to jewelry, to clothes and wallets. Food is always a great gift. You can personalize a food gift by mixing all the dry ingredients of the recipient’s favorite baked food and place them in a jar adorned with fancy decoration. All they have to do is add the liquid ingredients, pop it into the oven and they have a great treat to feast on. Money clips are a great way for a stylish guy to keep track of his money. Perfume and cologne never fail as gifts. I even give perfume or cologne to the kids as well. Lastly, clothes are another good choice for pretty much everyone.  


1. Papier de Maison Tablet Cover
2. Gift Card – Spa, restaurant, retail store…
3. Phone Cover
4. Personalized accessories
5. Homemade Cupcake Mix
6. Tablet PC – IPad, Kindle or Gadget
7. Money clip for that special guy
8. Perfume/cologne
9. Portable music player
10. Clothes

Quintessential Tablet Covers by Papier de Maison


Many tablet covers have failed to live up to the expectations of the fashionistas and the modern day professionals. Say goodbye to dull tablet covers that fail to live up to the demands of the modern lifestyle. Papier de Maison’s tablet covers are equip with a notepad that matches the design on the exterior, and a color coordinated stylus 2-in 1 pen that serves as a pointer for your tablet and a writing device. Those days of toting around your tablet and notepad are over. Say good riddance!
Papier de Maison combined beauty, elegance, durability and practicality to make their tablet covers. It is the ideal union of art and functionality. The tablet covers come in a variety of colors and designs, and closes with a tab. All of the Papier de Maison tablet covers have a matte finish. The tablet covers are sleek and slim, which allow an easy grip. The lightweight covers fit easily into a tote bag or briefcase, and allow easy transport of the covers. It also contains integrated magnets on one of the panels and the tab along with velcro straps to ensure your device is secure. The padding and lining provide extra support for your device. The padded device bed secures your tablet. Also, the cover is capable of being adjusted to meet your needs. The cover can be transformed into several different angles so that you can type, watch  a video, or display a presentation. The tablets cost $30.00 and would make the perfect Christmas gift. If anyone is still trying to figure out what to get their loved one for Christmas, I suggest this tablet cover. I provided a link below where you can purchase the tablet cover. I can't wait to use my covers. I feel like a child with a new toy. I look forward to using my tablet covers at meetings, my home office and even in bed. 







Holiday Talk

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This is a great time to think of all the things you are thankful for.There are so many sales going on and the Infamous Black Friday is almost here. Many stores will have a Black Friday Preview and open Thanksgiving Night. Do you you prefer going out to the stores to hunt for Black Friday deals or do you prefer shopping in the comfort of your own home?

 Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner? The year is coming to an end. It's time to start making your New Year's resolutions.

If you love Hello Kitty, you are in for a treat. Forever 21 is now selling a Hello Kitty line.  You can check out the line here: Forever21

Many cosmetic companies have released a holiday line. Such companies as MAC and Lancome have a holiday collection available. The colors in both collections are nice.
I personally always reach for deep colored lipstick and/or nail polish for the holidays. Gold nail polish is pretty festive as well.

Product Review: Mane 'n Tail

 I suffered from dry and damaged hair. As a result, several months ago I was on the hunt for a conditioner to restore health and shine to my hair. I stumbled upon Mane 'N Tail at my local drug store and decided to try it. The product has a creamy texture and a citrus scent. The scent is not overbearing. After using the product for a month, I realized my hair was a lot stronger than it was before I started using the product. The more I continued to use the product, the more my hair improved. My hair was thin and dry from all the damage it experienced. The product also restored moisture to my hair and my hair had a lot more body than it usually does. Overall I like Mane 'N Tail and recommend to any one with the same problems I once had. I plan to post a video about the product and discuss in more detail.

Autumn Vibes

First off, I want to extend my warmest sympathies to all those affected by Hurricane Sandy.As another breast cancer awareness month ends, I want to briefly discuss how great  it  is  to spread awareness about the disease and honor the survivors.

The noticeable change in the weather and scenery are the best indications that autumn is here. I absolutely love this time of year. I enjoy the smell of roasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin flavored foods, the crackling sound coming from the fire place and warm apple cider. Before you know it, the holidays will be here.There are some things to look forward to this holiday season.I'll go into detail about that in another post. I'm especially looking forward to Christmas.

I provided some looks below that represent my style this fall.

Cute cocktail dress

5out of 5

Fit: Feels true to size

Waist: Feels true to size

Length: Feels true to length

Pros: Nice Color, Figure Flattering, Easy Care, Nice Fabric

Cons: Needs a zipper

Best Uses: Special Occasions, Date Night/Night Out

Describe Yourself: Classic Dresser

Comfort vs Style: Comfort Driven

Was this a gift?: No

The dress fits true to size and the fabric is great quality. The only disadvantage of the dress is the fact that you have to step into it or pull it over your head. I wish it had a side zipper. Other than that, it is a great dress and would be a nice addition to any wardrobe.

Styles that are so hot, you will make the temperature rise

There are so many trends this spring, but the main trends seem to be high-low hems and pop of colors from neon to pastel. High-low/uneven hems can be found in dresses, skirts and even shirts. I provided 3 examples of the uneven hem below. The dress, skirt and shirt all have uneven hems. Colored denim is a great way to add color to your wardrobe. A bright colored blazer is also another way to add some color to your look. If all else fails, you can just wear some bright colored accessories.Add a pair of blue earrings or a neon belt to your look this spring until you are comfortable wearing colored denim or trying one of the other spring trends.

Put a little "Spring" in your step

Flowers are blooming, the temperature is rising and birds are chirping. Spring is right around the corner. It's time to bring out the open-toe shoes and sandals, step outside and enjoy the sunshine. My favorites from the
selection below are the Jimmy Choo shoes and the Brian Atwood sandals with the fringe detail. The Brian Atwood sandals are a lovely shade of purple and would look great with a black dress.

Colored Denim

Spring is almost here. I look forward to adding bright and pastel colors to my wardrobe. Colored denim is a great way to add a pop of color to your outfit.

Head Over Heels in Love

It's that time of year again. You know, that holiday when you spend some quality time with your partner and show them how much you care. Well, I created four looks to give you ideas of what to wear while you spend time with your loved one. Whether it is a casual event, a formal event or a semi-formal event, you can make sure you look your best. For the first look, I paired a bold top with a pair of pants. That same top can go with a fitted skirt. A bold top will turn a plain outfit into an adorable outfit. A bold top is also versatile, and will look great with a pair of pants or a skirt for a romantic date. A cocktail dress and a nice pair of pumps makeup the second look.A cocktail dress is a great choice for a Valentine's Day event. You can pick a simple cocktail dress and make your look more chic by adding accessories or pick a cocktail dress that stands out more. Pick a dress silhouette that you like if you decide to wear a dress. I know many people do not like the form-fitting cocktail dress.A formal dress is the third look. This dress will be great to wear to the opera or any other snazzy event your lover has planned. And remember, accessories can add life to any dull look.

Suit Up

It's almost that time of year again. Yes, in due time you will be able to show some leg.Spring is slowing approaching. I was inspired to do this post after I saw singer Brandy wearing a short suit. Click on the link to view pictures of Brandy. Short suits are very stylish and sophisticated. They are great to wear during warmer weather. You can dress them up by wearing them with heels, or you can go for a more casual look and wear your suit with flats.
