YOGI | 2014 gift guide 1.Mesh Insert Leggings (great for hot and regular heated yoga) - 2.Yogitoes Towel (great for hot yoga) - 3.Om Tee (great for before an after hot class, or a relaxed regular heat class) - 4.Sports Bra (light support, wear alone or under a tank or tee. Or a tank with a built in bra – this one is my ultimate fav ) - 5.Cork Block (great prop for all types of yoga) - 6.Passport To Prana (a great pass for newbies or anyone looking to try different styles/studios) - 7.Jade Yoga Mat (favorite, favorite – great for all types) - 8.Teeki Electric Night Legging (great for hot and regular, and just awesome) - 9.Niko Backpack (throw everything you need for a class in, probably a mat even) - 10.Vinyasa Scarf (great for before and after class as a scarf, blanket or a wrap) - 11.Yoga Strap (Excellent prop for all styles of yoga – expert and beginner) - 12.Yoga Mat Strap (my favorite way to carry my mat)

Well that was already a mouthful, so I’ll make the rest of this pretty short. Go for the good stuff when it comes to your favorite yoga lover (more eco and economical to buy things that last/aren’t disposable). If you’re shopping for your yoga newbie, well then start with a couple good basic items (like a mat, leggings and a tank or sports bra + tank combo) things she (or he, minus the bra and tank, obv) can use for any workout, forever. And because I know someone is gonna ask, why yogi and not yogini? Well, I’m not a fan of dudette, so yogini sorta falls into the same “not really doing it for me” category – just feels weird to say or be called it when dude and yogi work just fine.

LITTLE HER | 2014 gift guide 1.Swell Mini Bottle – 2.Little Fashion Designer Kit – 3.Dory Fantasmagory Book – 4.Slippers – 5.Goldie Box – 6.Easel – 7.Louise Loves Art Book – 8.My Magical Mermaid – 9.mini mioche x Heart + Habit Baseball Dress – 10.Bath Time Doll – 11.Apron and Cooking Set

That’s a whole lot of gift guides, all neatly lined up in a row. I know and I’m nearing the end, hopefully they have been a little helpful while you do your own shopping. This one is for the little lady, ages 3-6 – this was actually my toughest gift guide to put together. Mostly because I’m clueless as to what to buy wee Harlow this year, when we ask her what she wants this year, she just says: “I don’t know, girl stuff!”, and I’m all like “but what is this ‘girl stuff’ you speak of!?” Of course without question, she wants something (anything!) Frozen related (probably an Elsa or Anna doll), but we all know that’s about as easy to track down as the gold at the end of the rainbow – so it’s on my list, maybe just not this (above) list.

These are a few of the things I’m eyeing and think would be a great gift for most any little lady – also like the LITTLE HIM list, many items are good for him or her (it’s just fun to separate). Also hey look, STOCKING STUFFERS.

LITTLE HIM | holiday 2014 gift guide 1.Star Wars Calendar – 2.Magic Set – 3.Perplexus (great to start with junior or original) – 4.Before You Grow Up Book – 5.Socks – 6.Simon Game – 7.Marble Maze – 8.Tic-Tac-Toe – 9.Mini Mioche x Heart + Habit Cowl Hoodie – 10.Baseball Pitcher – 11.The Book With No Pictures – 12.Over the Door Indoor Basketball Hoop – 13.Snap Circuit – 14.Chess Board

Mostly for the little guy in the 4-7 age group, since naturally that’s what I gravitate too. And when I say little HIM any of these things could also be great little her gifts, it’s just more fun to separate things – I know my kids both enjoy both classic him and her gifts. This is the list I’ll be pulling from for Kingston’s gifts, it’s a good thing he won’t be checking the blog anytime soon, or he’d be mighty confused when he got Santa laid his presents under the tree. More gift guides, still to come (you know, if you’re interested): LITTLE HER, HOST/HOSTESS, SECRET SANTA, HIM, YOGA (can’t leave it out), STOCKING STUFFERS, and maybe LITTLE THEM or FAMILY.

HER | holiday gift guide just for her 1. Astrology Calendar – 2.Shawl Funnel Scarf – 3.Quartz Necklace – 4.Waxed Canvas Bag – 5.Marbled Notepads – 6.Fedora – 7.Marble iPhone Case – 8.Crawling Earring – 9.Striped Oversized Tee – 10.Black Zipper Pouch – 11.Face Mask

The first or our gift guides, I have a few more lined up. I wanted to get them all posted prior to the crazy sale season (not to be confused with the actual holiday season) but sick kiddos take priority over everything and I’m running a tad late (on everything). So (enough with the excuses) here is my first round-up of gifts, great for the big HER in your life – friend, sister, cool teenager (IDK, I don’t know what’s hip with the kids these days), maybe mom, and probably you (just nonchalantly, show your partner). Happy Hump Day, and stay healthy – I’m off to wipe more boogers!

her-style1 her-style2

her-style3 her-style4 It’s funny how used to things I can get, how the idea of doing something all of the time eventually just becomes “how it’s done”. Like I always realize that things “could” change or they might, but the consistency of doing the one thing becomes so common that it’s actually a little hard to think beyond it. The day Harlow started having an opinion on what she wanted to wear (which was probably about a year ago, now), when she started requesting certain things and even telling me “no, I don’t want to wear that” I was (sorta embarrassingly) shocked.

I knew it was coming, I knew it was only a matter of time. But I had gotten so used to picking out her clothes (with a little bit of her help) it basically became, how it was done. Of course I wasn’t mad, because how could you be when it’s clear she was expressing her adorable self and her growing little personality. It just threw me off. Also if I’m being honest, it was a tiny bit hard for me to adjust to her style and the fact that it wasn’t always the same as mine. Her wardrobe went from being pretty much all tomboy-esk to a much heavier mix of pink (and more pink), glitter, anything shiny, dresses and still some tomboy-esk things (she just tops everything off with something pink or glittery). As much as I was (embarrassingly) jolted (it’s the clothing designer in me!) when she started telling me what she wanted to wear I was so flipping proud to see her being confident and exerting some independence. So lately, a token hit of pink, loads of necklaces, a dress for almost everyday is just how getting dressed gets done – and I’m pretty happy (not embarrassingly) to have gotten used to ‘how it’s now done‘.

Her favorite new thing (which was also mine as a little girl) is changing her Barbies clothes, she really staring loving to change her dolls clothes around the time she started telling me, what she wanted (mostly didn’t want) to wear. She likes to try and find them outfits like the ones she has in her closet (always a hit of pink or glitter). And of course she goes for the little Barbie clothes that I would have walked right by in the store – go figure! It’s fun to watch her personality run wild and to see the crazy things she comes up with, and then reasoning behind her choices that usually manifests into a story of “who” that Barbie is or what she is doing.
