Holiday Gift Ideas for Him & Amazon Shopbop Boutique

5:54 AM
Hey, Hey, Hey!

I know you might be bored of reading Holiday Gift Guided Posts, but believe me, when it comes to the Christmas season, we are always in panic for what to give to our loved ones. Every year, I brainstorm what to give to my husband for Christmas, and every year, it comes down to crunch time.  I always ask him what he really wants, but his answer is invariably, "I don't know, babe! Pick yourself." Thanks, hubby, you just made my life more complicated. Haha...

Anyway, since I spent hours and hours looking for inspiration for what my husband would really like, I thought that it would be great to share my Holiday Gift Ideas for Him with you:


Dash Camera. It might sound lame, but I think it is a both a gadget a lot of guys don't have, and you can consider it an investment in your safety and security. You never know what this camera will catch.

Canary Camera. You might think I'm paranoid with all of these cameras, but I can personally vouch that this is a good gift. I have owned a Canary Camera for over 3 years now. Every time we leave our house to travel, I feel that our house safe, because I can always check to see if everything looks alright. One time, some maintenance guys entered our apartment without telling us - and it was all caught on camera in real time. We were able to get a hold of the management and clear things up right away.

Dinner for Two:

This is good if you are not into cooking, and your boyfriend or husband wants to eat something amazing. Whether it's a classic steakhouse, sports bar, or other place your other half would enjoy, both of you win with this gift. I usually look for dinner places on Groupon because sometimes you can find pretty good deals.

Game Night:

If your husband/ boyfriend/ father is very active and looking for something fun, book him a room to play paintball, air diving (not sky diving), or indoor rock climbing.

Movie Date: 

If your guy is into movies, I definitely advise you to reserve a movie night for you two. Get a huge popcorn box and some drinks. There are few cinema theaters where you can order food and beer while enjoying the cinema experience. We have done it before and it was fantastic!

Things to Wear:

Normally, I don't buy clothes for my husband, because we find it's better to go together to the store and pick something. However, small accessories like socks, a cashmere scarf or leather driving gloves could be a good gift.

Life Saving Items: 

The Tile tracker is one of the best gift that you should get for your loved ones. My husband always loses his car keys or wallet. I have been a big fan of Tile trackers. They have saved my life so many times after I kept losing my phone or keys.  The only one thing that I hate about Tile is that you have to replace them every year. But I recently found out that they offer one with replaceable batteries. Yay!

Since we travel a lot by car, and are very often renting car, I realized that we really need a car phone holder, especially when you don't have GPS built into the car and need something to help prop up your Google Map App.

A trip to Dublin or Munich:

If your husband/ boyfriend loves traveling, the best gift what you could offer is a trip to Dublin during St. Patrick's festival or Munich during Octoberfest. You can use my referral link to get $28 towards your first stay with Airbnb and I will get $17 travel credit (Click here). And if you would like to get $20 OFF at your next stay with, click here for referral link, and I will get $20 credit too.

10 Blazers you need to have in your wardrobe

10:52 AM
Hello babies! How was your weekend? I had quite a busy month, yet it was super fun because my besties came to town. I have two best friends since college times and our lives ended up on different continents even though we dreamed of living close to one other. Since I moved to Europe, we finally decided to have a big reunion in my small German town. My friends already have children, which made this reunion even more special. Anyway, after a busy weekend, I finally had time to write blog posts and to shoot some looks before it got freezing outside. 

Today, I would like to share 10 blazers that you should own in your wardrobe. Blazers are such important pieces in my wardrobe, because they are easy to style and help look not only classic, but also super chic. Every lady should own at least one black blazer in her closet. Since I got mine during a big summer sale at Mango, I found a few similar ones in a different price range. As for other trendy blazers, I believe it would be great to have a few check/plaid blazers and an animal printed one. Check out these below:

Christmas Wish List

10:21 AM

Hello, guys! I love the festive months of the year, because I can finally create my wish list for what I would love to get as Christmas gifts:

Robot Vacuum: Since I'm a big fan of electronic toys, I believe that every girl should own a Roomba. It will save you so much time from cleaning, and you can also clean your house more efficiently. The Roomba Robot Vacuum is a bit pricey, so I would advise to look for something more affordable like an iLife or Proscenic Vacuum. My favorite variants can also mop the floor.

New lens for your camera: Normally, I upgrade my camera with a new lens every 2-3 years. I think I'm ready to add a new baby lens to my camera family. I have been reading so many review about the Canon 24-70mm lens, but sadly, I didn't earn enough money this year to splurge. I guess I will have to wait till next year. I wonder if my hubby is reading this? Hehe.

Cashmere Sweater: Winter time is always great reason for buying a new cozy sweater. A good quality sweater made from Cashmere or wool is a must-have. What do you think about this Valeria Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater?

Long Wool Coat: This year, I purchased my first long wool coat, and to be honest, I think it was the best purchase I have made in the last 2 years. I have been searching for a camel coat since 2015, but so far, I haven't found anything that's either my size or at an affordable price. Check out this Acne Long Wool Coat.

Dr. Martens Boots: I have never owned a pair of Dr. Martens boots. I've read so many good reviews about how warm and great they are. I think it's time to check them out and see if I can wear them. Pls let me know if you own a pair. Are they good enough to add another pair to your collection?
