Gift Guides 2020

The Baker, The Dog Mom, The One Who's Always Cold...Zulily has Christmas gifts for all the friends on your shopping list. Here are some recs.
A huge thank you to Zulily & ShopStyle for sponsoring this post. Hey hey, back with all the cute stuff from Zulily on sale today! I love these posts because I really get to have fun and be creative with a theme around all of their adorable items. The "down side" is it always sucks me in and I...
Deep conditioning masks, exfoliators, bath salts...presents for a spa day at home are on order. Gift a few of these for the ultimate pampering self-care kit.
The stress is real this year. And as much as I'd love to go on a spa weekend getaway, that's just not happening right now. Mostly because of Coronavirus, but also because...$$$. Those spa treatments don't come cheap. But who's to say we can't just recreate some of them in our own houses? (For a fraction of the cost,...
Cute mugs, travel carafes, candles, throws & accessories...we're finding our fave meaningful gifts & home decor from Black-owned businesses
We don't normally shop for holiday gifts quite this early in the season. And in the past, we haven't directed our search for gifts specifically toward Black-owned businesses, organic, sustainable and handcrafted gifts. This year, is different, and we're doing all that. What began as a deep-dive into shopping Black-owned home decor this year has been, for me, one of...
Best holiday gifts 2020? Sephora features fun, foolproof beauty sets that make perfect presents. Think lashes, lips & face masks. MWAH.
GUYS! In the craziness of the weekend, we completely forgot about the Sephora Beauty Insiders Event. Beauty Insiders can take up to 20% off of everything (depending on your Insider status), but the sale ends today. Most of us here at TME use the sale to stock up on our tried-and-true beauty favs, or on some splurgy-worth beauty tools...
Pretty, useful & luxe. We think the Slip silk face mask is 1 of the best holiday gifts. A review of why we love it + a few other gorg face coverings.
Face masks as holiday gifts. It’s a thing. Definitely would not have predicted this trend a year ago, but right now I am TOTALLY all-in! It's so incredibly important we mask up, so let’s at least wear ones we adore and feel good in (that are also effective), and let's gift the masks that we adore and feel good...
Patagonia fleece, UGG slippers, YETI mugs, electric blankets — the gifts of warmth & social distance are just right. The coziest presents for outdoor hangouts, right here.
Cozy times with friends are going to be oh-so-important this winter, but also tricky with all that's going on. I'm feeling like porch hangs where we're all bundled up (comforter coat, anyone?) and sipping something warm (from this great mug) are going to be the godsend of winter. We can be social but still safe. It'll be like the...
Calming, Zen-like gifts? For the wife, BFF, grandma, teacher, caregiver, (self)? Make it a self-care set or basket. 18 presents for pause, inside.
This has been one of the most stressful weeks on record. Even as I type this, I'm still a bit nauseous, waiting for the polls to close. Raines and I spent a couple of hours today working the phone banks — it was a good way to direct some of my nervous energy. And I was pretty proud of...
