 Personalized Gifts Under $25

If you haven’t notice, I love gifts! My favorite gifts to receive and give are personalized gifts!

My favorite part of the gift giving experience is seeing the happy smiling face of the recipient of my gift. My second favorite part is when someone exclaims, “Where on earth did you get that”? Gift giving has always to been easy for me.  And I want it to be easy for you too!

So I created this gift guide for those of you that struggle with gift giving, but want to improve your gift giving skills. I want you to get “ohs and ahs” the next time you give a gift. Buying unique and memorable gifts doesn’t have to be hard, you just need to know where to shop. These are some of my most beloved websites for personalized gifts.


My Favorite Summer Cocktail Series… The Mango Margarita

Mango Margarita
When life (or your cousin) gives you a bag of mangos, make Mango Margaritas!
This refreshing cocktail is my all-time favorite summer cocktail to make at home. It literally take about 5 minutes to make a whole pitcher worth. It’s the perfect cocktail for sitting pool side in sunny South Florida.
1 large ripe mango
1 lime
1/2 cup of tequila
2 tablespoons of agave
1 cup of ice
  1. Cut up the mango into chunks
  2. Place all other ingredients into a blender
  3. Squeeze the juice of half of a lime into the blender
  4. Pulse the blender until mixture is smooth
  5. Pour mixture into a glass and serve
The best part about this recipe is that you can tweak it to your personal taste buds. If you like it sweeter add more agave. If you like it stronger add more tequila. this recipe makes enough for two servings. For a pitcher worth double the recipe. Cheers!
What’s your favorite summer cocktail? Comment below.





My #TreatYoSelf Wish List

#treatyoself wish list Hey y’all! Yesterday, I saw one of the bloggers I follow on instagram (my username: sporadic_obsessions) use the hashtag #treatyoself.  Of course, I then clicked on the hashtag to see how others used it! Most seem to use the hashtag on drool worthy food pics. I have a serious sweet tooth, so I don’t consider deserts to be a treats. Cookies, ice cream, and cupcakes are just a normal part of my week!

But, I loved the idea of this hashtag as inspiration to do nice things for yourself. I think that self-love and taking the time to care for yourself is very important, especially for women. It’s easy for women to become so consumed with taking care of others (spouse, children, parents, boss, friends, ect.) that they put their own wants and needs on the back burner. And sometimes we neglect ourselves for so long that we can’t remember what we actually like, want or need. Now if the above self-care statements were not enough of a justification for “treating yourself” keep reading.
