It's the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas brings out the best in all of us and for me, I love to find really cool ways to tell the people in my life that I appreciate and love them! A few weeks ago, me and my girls Kachet and Ruthie spent the afternoon together for our first Girlfriend Gift Exchange and it was so fun and full of laughter!
These women have something so special and I still can't quite put my finger on it... Actually, I know what it is... They are genuine, sincere, beautiful, powerful, and they just GET me.. Yep, that's it. And it doesn't hurt that I get to swirl around in some Black Girl Magic with them along the way!
It had been about 7 months since we all had the chance to catch up but it was worth every second of the wait. I had a little secret i had been keeping from them (my little baby that's on the way!) and of course I had to spill the beans in person! They were completely shocked and over joyed with me about my little bundle of joy that's on the way soon! They couldn't believe how far along I was because I don't start showing till late in the game. Luckily, they were elated and made me feel very very special.
**I'll share more about Baby W a little later ;)
Oh Baby! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
I'm telling you now, this coffee had to be some of the best I've had all year!
**Do yourself a favor and grab the Mocha Reserve and get your entire life! It was so so good!
I loved the vibe, the amazing coffee and the swanky details all throughout the cafe. The perfect backdrop for catching up and enjoying the moments with each other!
I know that you'd love to lavish everyone on your gift list with luxurious presents, but sometimes your bank account may have other plans. And that's ok!!
Luckily, some of the greatest gifts ideas for this holiday season don't cost much at all!
For my girlfriends, I spent time in Sephora picking out gifts that I thought would be unique to them.
I have realized though, that these gifts can be perfect for friends, coworkers, extended family, and more!
Ruthie got the Paint the Town Nude Palette because she rocks nude colors so so well and I know she'd make it pop for the holidays! Kachet got the Shimmering Eye Shadow Gift Set. She's so classy and simple but every now and then she will throw in a little spice too!
Aren't these girls so cute? I love them.
I received the cutest Travel tag (she knows I love travel!) and ornaments from Ruthie along with a Spa getaway in a box from Kachet. Ahh! These girls knew just what I needed!
Hey loves, no matter how busy you are and no matter how tight your budget may be, take some time and gather your crew for some laughs and gift giving.
