Gift Ideas for Teens

Great Job for Teens


Is your teen expressing interest in looking for their first job? We recently asked on Facebook what your first jobs were, wondering if much has changed since we were kids. It hasn’t, most of the great jobs for teens haven’t changed. I remember what it was like starting my first job. I started on my 16th birthday at a BBQ restaurant and thought it was the coolest job ever! Getting to spend that first paycheck and buy whatever I wanted without having to ask my parents was the coolest feeling in the world! So We wanted to put a list of some great jobs for teens together for you, so you and your teen can look over it together and decided what kind of job would be perfect for them to pursue!Continue reading

Best Holiday Gifts for the Functional Fashionistas

I used to think I was too practical to be concerned with fashion. I never pictured myself as a girly girl. It felt like sacrifice, like I had to give up comfort and reason to be girly. It just seemed too complicated and overwhelming. I wanted the things I wore or carried with me to have a purpose beyond just to look good, if an accessory was just that then I was happy to leave it at home or to never own it at all.

People change. I am now a self professed girly-girly, fashionista, lover of all things that make me feel pretty. But some things have stayed the same. I still remain practical and love when functionality and fashion combine in the ultimate must have accessory or clothing item.

the best gifts for the functional fashionista

I am sure I am not alone in my love for functional fashion. I am sharing my favorite fashion finds for the functional fashionista. If you are looking for gifts for the women in your life, I am confident they will love one of the items listed below.



An infinity nursing scarf is the perfect gift for breastfeeding moms who want to nurse their babies discreetly with style.


Infinity Nursing Scarf

This is the holy grail of functional fashion. The infinity nursing scarf is not only a great looking scarf, it is a breastfeeding cover for nursing moms. It can be worn as a shawl or a head covering. You can even use it to swaddle baby or as a car seat canopy. Trust me any moms on your list will love unwrapping an Udder Wraps Infinity Nursing Scarf this holiday season.

An Infinity Nursing Scarf is the perfect baby shower gift

Hair Tie Bracelets are the perfect gift for the fashionable ladies in your life who have long hair

Hair Tie Bracelet

Maybe you are asking what is a hair tie bracelet? It is ingenious that is what it is. I have long hair and often find myself grabbing a hair tie and wearing it on my wrist. Soon though the hair tie is annoying me because it is irritating my skin. So I take it off my wrist and toss it in my purse where it gets lost in the abyss. I also hate the way hair ties look on my arm. Hair tie bracelets are the perfect way to keep your hair tie handy and look your wrists looking good.Perfect for the health concious functional fashionista, the Amazefit will make her happy this year


Can I tell you a secret? I think Fitbits are ugly. I also think they are uncomfortable. Maybe I am overly picky but I don’t like the way my rubber banded Fit Bit feels on my wrist. Fortunately, I found the perfect answer for fit conscious fashionistas. It is called an Amazefit and it tracks your steps, distance, calories burned, and sleep. The Amazefit Moonbeam Activity and Sleep Tracker is the perfect gift for the functional fashionista who is would rather not wear a less than attractive Fit Bit.

These Hugger Mugger Batik Yoga Mat bags are just adorable and would make my inner yogi so happy.

Yoga Mat Bag

I have wanted a bag for my yoga mat for so long. It is just one of those things that I don;t want to spend money on for myself but would LOVE if someone would get me one as a gift. These Hugger Mugger Batik Yoga Mat bags are just adorable and would make my inner yogi so happy.

Undercover Waterwear is the perfect gift for the traveling fashionista on your holiday shopping list.

Undercover Waterwear

Traveling fashionistas need clothing that is both fashionable and functional. When visiting the Philippines recently, I had to figure out how to dress for multiple activities in one day. I needed to be able to go from fancy lunch at a chic restaurant to a 45 minute boat ride in an underwater cave back to a business casual dinner. I needed an outfit that was appropriate for dining in fancy restaraunts and for getting soaked on a boat. Impossible? Nope. Undercover Waterwear makes clothing that is resort wear that functions as a fashionable dress but can also get wet. It dries quickly and no one will know you are wearing swimwear.

This Undercover Waterwear dress is a perfect outfit to take you from resort casual attire meetings and lunches to water activities without ever needing to change

Gift giving doesn’t have to be complicated but I know sometimes I get stumped by some of the people on my list. I hope my ideas for the perfect gifts for functional fashionistas help you get your shopping done and spread some holiday cheer under your Christmas tree this year.
