Holiday Gift Guide + Wish List
The COUNTDOWN IS ON, there are only 18 more days until Christmas. Tis the season for crowding the malls to get those last minute items for your loved ones. I have to admit this year I decided to forgo spending time in the malls and opted to order my gifts online... shout out to Amazon.ca. Having spent 10 years in the retail industry, I know a thing or two about shopping for the holiday season.
This year, I'm sharing my Top 5 gift ideas for the boss babe in your life. I even decided to add in my own personal wish list in the hopes that my own family and friends would get a clue!

As a lover of all things Mac Cosmetics, I'm always happy when I get a new lip colour from Mac Cosmetics. Lip sticks, make up brushes, or eye shadow palettes are great stocking stuffers. If you're overwhelmed with the fury that is Sephora, then drop by any make up counter to select a holiday set that is filled with the most coveted products.
+ Lastest on my wish list is the Fenty Beauty by Rihanna
Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
Unfortunately, my shade has been sold out online and in stores for the better part of the last month. So I'll keep on wishing and hoping that Santa delivers!

Girl bosses everywhere can relate to the struggles of having to carry around a laptop. My laptop is the single most used tool that I own, outside of my agenda and cellphone, so it's a tool that I cannot go without. It's the single source that connects me to running my businesses effectively. I rely heavily on various apps, which allows me to generate content and connect with my readers. An iPad is a unique gift for any girl boss who is always on the move and always connected.
+ Currently, I'm wishing for an iPad Pro, which is the latest in iPad technology. It's lighter and faster, and helps streamline your efficiency . The Pro allows you to multitask and split screens, so that you can work within multiple applications simultaneously. What girl boss would not want to have easy access to her e-mails, while editing her latest blog post?

In my recent dive into self-care, I've started to use scented candles to help with meditation and relaxation. I'm not too picky about scents, but lavender and vanilla are among my favourites. If you're looking for an awesome stocking suffer, I suggest you check out the selection of scented candles and incense diffusers at Urban Outfitters.
+My personal favourite from their collection is the Artist Print Tin Candle in the Watermelon and Mint scent.

I have never met a boss chick who isn't on point and organized. For the beautiful professional in your life, how about picking up a 2018 day planner or a new sleek and savvy notebook. As a lawyer with multiple side hustles, my day planner and notebook are the two items that stay with me at all times. To run and efficient business, you need to be on top of deadlines, events and meetings. While taking meetings, I like to also carry a professional, yet stylish, note book to jot down any thoughts, genius ideas or bouts of inspiration! A quality day planner will have a monthly calendar and day-to-day breakdown where notes or reminders can be written.
+I'm already ahead of the curve. I purchased my 2018 day planner, but I'm still on the hunt for a Kate Space Notebook + Journal
to collect my thoughts!

Coffee is fuel. Coffee is life. Coffee gives me the energy I need to tackle any challenge. I don't know if I would be able to run two successful businesses without my daily, sometimes twice daily, dose of java. A cute mug with a phrase or saying printed onto it, along with her favourite coffee beans make a delightful stocking stuffer this season. If she's not a coffee addict, like myself, opt for finding her favourite blend of tea leaves or hot chocolate.
+ Amazon.ca has a cute array of ceramic and travel mugs with inspiration phrases. My favourite is a Sweet Water Decor ceramic mug with a phrase that reads, "Everyday I'm Hustlin'"
