Quick Tips

I love being able to share quick tips that work for me! So, here ya go, ladies!

  1. My go-to trick for keeping my engagement ring and wedding band diamonds lookin’ fresh to to let them soak in a concoction of liquid dish soap and water. Then I go over them with an old make-up brush and BOOM!
  2. You can buy some super cute clips to make your shoes look fancy (i.e. White House Black Market has cuuute shoe clips!) OR you can grab some clip-on earrings, snap them on your shoes and they will do the same!
  3. When you spill something on your clothes and you don’t have your shout wipes handy, the next go-to method of removing a stain on the fly is this: use a napkin to try to absorb the stain, then get some soda water (and if oil in involved, a squeeze of lemon) and work on that stain. Try to blot the stain, don’t rub or you might spread it. Also, do NOT use any hot water to remove stains. Hot water sets stains.
  4. Spray some of your favorite scent or perfume on some fabric and stick it in your undies drawer. Sounds weird, but a light fresh scent never hurt anyone!

Holiday Shopping Hot Spot

This year I have done the majority of my holiday shopping online. It all started with my son getting a cough, then pink eye, then a fever, then some vomiting and a little bit of croup. Needless to say, the whole household caught a cold and we have been cooped up here since the 2nd of December. Since I have family out of state, I try to get my shopping done early because I need time to wrap and ship the presents. What I want to share with you today is a retailer that I had forgotten about until my son needed some cold weather pants a few months back and I found myself here: Macy’s.

Macy’s isn’t a place that had readily popped into my mind in years, and possibly ever. I have rediscovered Macy’s and I am down with this department store. Macy’s has awesome sales pretty regularly and literally has something for everyone. Shopping for your husband? Macy’s has men’s watches, jewelry, ties, clothes, gadgets, etc. Shopping for your toddler? Macy’s has toys and clothes for toddlers! Score! Shopping for Mom or Grandma? Macy’s has quality slippers! Haha. They carry Free People, which if you read my blog you know I LOVE Free People. All priced pretty reasonably especially with their constant sales.

Macy’s has a Gift Ideas section on their site which is incredibly useful. You can shop their stocking stuffers (so helpful), you can shop for “last minute” gifts, you can filter it by who you are shopping for, or by price, or by type. They even have a White Elephant gift option. Check it out here>>. You can have the products shipped directly to you or pick up at your local store.

If you find yourself stumped on a gift, Macy’s just might have the answer. Happy Shopping!

XO, Nico
