Best Buy Camera

Do you ever feel like you are just not ever done Christmas shopping?  I know that is me for sure.  Well do not worry because Best Buy is the place to go if you want to get your loved ones awesome gifts this Holiday.  When you go into a Best Buy store, you will always get expert service and unbelievable prices, so be sure to stop in or check out BestBuy.com for some of these popular gifts!

XBOXXbox One is a great gift for the gamer on your Nice List.  Built by gamers for gamers, the Xbox One is THE PLACE for games. In addition to being a great gaming console, Xbox one connects consumers unlike any other device.  Xbox One enables access to the latest TV shows and movies through your favorite apps.  With Xbox One all of your media is at your fingertips when you want it.

How about giving the gift of spectacular sound from JBL?  They have several speakers to choose from, but here are a few that caught my eye:


JBL Charge 2 Between the twin passive radiators for deep bass, the massive 6000mAh battery and the hands-free conference speakerphone the key benefit is the Bluetooth Social Mode which allows up to three different users to take their turns to play their own playlists on a single speaker.

JBL Flip 2– Aside from the dual performance-tuned JBL drivers and a built-in bass port, the key benefit of the JBL Flip 2 is the SoundClear echo and noise cancellation combined with the state-of the art microphone system to pick up calls on the speaker.

JBL Reflect Earbud headphones–  Sweat proof ergonomic design.  With a 5 hour rechargeable battery and a reach of about 40 feet, the JBL Reflect BT’s key benefit is the design of the ergonomic eartips along with the built-in magnets which keep your buds on standby without loose cables.

GO 50 S - lifestyle

How about a new GPS for the traveler on your list?  Both Garmin and Tom Tom have great new products featuring bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling, traffic and weather updates that are sure to impress someone that has been wanting a new GPS.

2014 Holiday Gift Guide for Women

2014 Holiday Gift Guide for women

Let me help you find the perfect gift for the woman on your shopping list this Holiday season.  If you are buying for your wife, mother, sister, aunt, boss, or friend, you will want to check out this fabulous list of gifts to choose from :-)

Shark® Rotator® Powered Lift-Away Vacuum
Shark Rotator Lift Away Professional Vacuum is honestly the BEST Vacuum I have ever used! It is light weight, picks up dust, dirt, and hair from hardwood floors with ease. On carpet is where it really works the magic- the Rotator really works to lift away hair and dirt from the carpet. There is even a light so you can see just how dirty, and then clean, your floors are.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from this mom :-)
Kiss Instawave Automatic Curler
MSRP $59.99 and can be found at Ulta, Target, and Kiss.com
Kiss Insta Curl

The revolutionary Kiss InstaWave is a fully automatic curler that instantly creates beautiful, long-lasting curls with ease.

No need to be a pro, simply place a section of hair on the InstaWave and leave the rest of the curling to us. With the touch of a button, the Curl Dial Instantly and Automatically catches and curls hair, transforming straight locks into tangle-free glamorous curls in seconds.

This curler heats up fast and gives you fabulous curls or waves in seconds!


Home Logic Dish Soap

Many brands use harsh ingredients in their liquid dish detergents, but our Natural HomeLogic Liquid Dish Soap beats to its' own drum. Gentle on the skin yet powerful enough to cut through even the toughest grease, a little goes a long way with our concentrated formula. So get ready to bathe your dishes in a sink full of luxurious bubbles.

Every dish will be left clean and residue free and the air will be touched with a light and uplifting aromatherapeutic Grapefruit scent, which we consider a well earned bonus just for doing the dishes.

Our Natural HomeLogic Liquid Dish Soap is also hypoallergenic, gluten free, SLS and SLES free, and formulated specifically for people with sensitive skin.

All Natural HomeLogic products are 100% plant and mineral derived and do not contain artificial dyes or fragrances.
Brother P-touch Label Maker PT-D200
MSRP: $39.99


Do you have DIYer or crafter on your holiday list? Here is a great gift you can get for them. Most people think of label makers as only for organization, while they are great for that (trust me- I am one of those people that loves to see everything labeled), a label maker can help to easily add personalization to any craft or help you create something fabulous.

From putting your mark on your homemade jar of jam to creating refrigerator magnets with personalized messages, the P-Touch label maker makes DIY gifts easy and fun. Let me know if you’d like step-by-step directions or hi-res images for these or similar gift ideas.

Brother P Touch

Why this makes a great gift:
First, if your gift recipient loves organization, this is a GREAT label maker to have. It is easy to use, has a variety of fonts and ribbons (label strips) to choose from.

Second, CRAFTS- if your gift recipient is not only into organization, but also a crafter like me, having this label maker on hand is PERFECT to create all sorts of fun stuff like place setting tags, labels for gifts, wine glass tags, labeling class gifts with ease... the list goes on with what you can do with the Brother P-touch Label Maker.
HomeLogic Odor Eliminating Spray

home logic odor spray

Instead of spraying a toxic and noxious air freshener that only masks unpleasant odors in your home and leaves a strong and chemically induced artificial scent behind that lingers, why not use a natural odor eliminator spray that actually breaks down and removes the odor causing molecules in the first place? We have always wondered what is the point of products that contain dangerous chemicals that simply coat the air with perfume anyway?

It is a new day and time to make a change. Opt for a natural spray that actually removes odors from surfaces and air instead. No dangerous chemicals, no sickly sweet scent left behind, just odor free air to breath. That is the purpose of our Natural HomeLogic Odor Eliminator Spray, nothing more and nothing less. It's fast acting and made with 100% natural plant and mineral based ingredients, making it a fume-free wonder that leaves only a lightly detectable Grapefruit scent behind that dissipates quickly. No fumes, no chemical magic, no artificial scents, just natural odor control.

Please note: this is not your Grandma's Febreeze. Our Natural Odor Eliminator Spray removes odors from the air instead of masking them with perfume. The product is dispensed with a trigger sprayer that adjusts the flow however the spray is not in a fine mist format.

Capresso On-the-Go Personal Coffee Maker



The On-the-Go Personal Coffee Maker keeps up with your busy lifestyle by quickly brewing coffee directly into the stainless steel insulated thermal travel mug so you never have to leave your brew behind.

Why this makes a great gift:
This is perfect for the anyone with a busy lifestyle that drinks coffee on the go. When I worked outside the home full time I was always grabbing coffee on my way out the door. It was a hassle to brew a whole pot of coffee so I would often just wait until I got to work to have my coffee.

Now even as a mom I am using my Capresso On the Go Coffee Maker to brew coffee on my way out to the door to drop Colton off at school and run my errands. I can brew the one cup I need right in my travel mug (comes with a super nice stainless steel one, but I can brew in my other mugs as well).

Man or Woman, this is a great gift to give or get this Christmas :-)
GoPro HERO4 SILVER Edition Camera HD Camcorder With Deluxe Carrying Case + Head Strap + Chest Strap + Monopod + 32GB SDHC MicroSD Memory Card Complete Deluxe Accessory Bundle


If you want a GoPro, the Hero4 is the newest one out there and this is a complete kit to ensure you have everything you need to get started with your GoPro.

A GoPro camcorder has been on my list for a LONG LONG time. I do a lot of traveling and to have a waterproof camera is amazing (with the casing it can be waterproof). Also this camera is GREAT for catching those action shots.

Why this makes a great Gift:
I can't come up with a reason why this wouldn't be a great gift. You can get high quality video and photos- all the action shots you wish you could get with the traditional camera. It is small and pretty much awesome all around.

What you can create with the Cameo... is honestly endless. The design store has almost A LOT of designs you can download, but you can also upload or create your own.

This is the starter bundle, it comes with lots of extras so when your loved one receives their Sillhoutte Cameo, they are ready to go from the start :-)

Why this makes a great gift:
If you have a crafter on your list, the Silhoutte Cameo is a great gift for them. With endless possibilities they can use the cutter to create fun crafts and gifts. I have seen MANY MANY projects created by the Cameo and I can't wait to keep learning so I get as awesome with mine as some of these ladies :-)

Soul Carrier Sarah Elizabeth Tote


Soul Carrier

Compassionate and living from a place of pure soul and pure love, Jennifer couldn’t imagine better inspirations to represent this bag than her two dear friends who are both named Sarah Elizabeth! This tote is a wider version of a traditional magazine tote – this is Soul Carrier’s ultimate version of chic.

The Sarah Elizabeth is handcrafted with love and care in Leon from genuine leather.

14” W by 3.75” D by 14” H
Micro-Suede Interior Liner
Key-fob Leash
3 Interior pockets
1 Interior Zippered pocket
1 Exterior Side pocket
Exterior Soul Carrier metal charm

Why this makes a great gift:
100% genuine leather makes the Soul Carrier products even smell like quality. The design is fashionable and functional. When I first saw this bag, my first thought was DIAPER BAG- because that is what I need right now. But I also see college student carrying note books or a fashionista business professional carrying a laptop and important documents in it too.

This is a gift you can feel confident giving and your recipient will appreciate :-)
Soul Carrier Blake Emery


Blake Emery

The playful innocence of childhood and the simplicity of having no fear is what Jennifer sees when observing her niece Blake Emery, whom she has named this clutch after. A simple pouch that can be used to keep all the items in your larger bag organized or on its own as an effortless clutch.

The Blake Emery is handcrafted with love and care in Leon from genuine leather.

9” W by 8” H
Micro-Suede Interior Liner

Magnetic snap closure

Double stitching around the border of the bag

Why this makes a great gift:
The Blake Emery clutch is a 100% Genuine Leather clutch and is super cute. I am personally a fan of the clutch style bag when I am going out without my kiddo. I enjoy not being weighed down by giant bag, if I can get away with it so this clutch was PERFECT for me.

If you have a fashionista on your shopping list, she is sure to love the Blake Emery. It comes in light and dark brown colors, so you can match it to many outfits with ease. :-)
