Friday Favorites #4

Hello Everybody! We are at yet another Fri(yay) and we have concluded the first week of December. Do you know what that means? There are only two more Fridays in between now and Christmas!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by the blog for another Friday Favorites. Before I go on with my weekly favorites, I wanted to give a little update on our Visa Process. Daniel has his medical check in Amsterdam on Monday and everything went very well. We have his Visa interview next week which means we could be getting his Greencard very very soon!! I will be sure to keep you updated =)

During Daniel’s medical check, Fé and I stopped in Blender Cafe and Concept store in Amsterdam and it was great! It is a full cafe and restaurant and is 100% made for children. There was a large play area in the back with slides and other toys and Fé just has so much fun! If you are ever in Amsterdam with your little one I suggest you stop by for a coffee or some lunch!

So I don’t actually own these boots (yet) but they are currently in my Nordstrom shopping basket. I am actually waiting to see if these boots go on sale during the Nordstrom Half-yearly sale (end of December) since I won’t be able to get them until I am in the states in January (shipping to Holland is a nightmare). These boots are actually at a better price point than many other boots this style, yet they have the best reviews!

I am so excited for Fé to wear her Mrs. Claus dress to our Tots Christmas Party next week! I couldn’t help myself and we just had to try it on early!

So, I have mentioned in another Friday favorites that I use Rosehip oil, but I have recently started mixing rosehip oil and jojoba oil together and it had been great! Rosehip oil gives me a ‘glow’ but I find the jojoba oil to be more moisturizing! It has been such a great addition to my skincare routine (which I will post on here sometime soon) especially in this cold dry weather.

I wanted to mention the Clarks shoes that we have for Fé as her first pair of shoes. Clarks are really popular in the UK, but I feel as though they don’t get as much credit in the USA. They actually measure your little one’s foot length and width to get the perfect fit! I feel confident about letting Fé run around in these shoes because they give her the right amount of protection while letting her feel develop properly!

Holiday Gift Guide 2017 | Gifts for Guys

Hello everyone! Welcome back to my Holiday Gift Guide series! Last week I posted my Gift Guide for Moms, which I hope you all enjoyed.

I tried to incorporate gifts for all men of varying interests. Of course, I am tainted by my own husband and his interests so I have included a lot of things that I think Daniel would like. For more inspiration check out last years Gift Guide for Dads.

I would love to hear your thoughts and hear about the gifts you are planning on giving your guys! Be sure to comment down below =)

Gift Guide for Men

1. Portable Wireless Speaker

The JBL portable Bluetooth speaker connects to up to three smartphones or tablets and has a battery life of 10 hours! We got one of these speakers for my father-in-law for his birthday and the sound is incredible!

2. Electric Shaver

The Braun Series 9 electric shaver is the best shaver on the market! It has two specialized trimmers and has been proven to be effective on even the scruffiest beards!

3. Ugly Christmas Sweater with smartphone Flame

This Christmas Sweater allows you to attach your smartphone inside the sweater and a real fire brings the sweater to life! Not to mention it is a great conversation starter and is sure to be a hit at every Christmas Party!

4. Mens Designer Briefcase

This is on my list for Daniel this year as he needs a nice bag to take to work with him (instead of just toting around his laptop around along with all of his chargers, phone, wallet, etc!) I think this case from Ted Baker looks modern and stylish without being too stuffy!

5. NFL Team Toaster

The ultimate gift for the ultimate NFL fan! This toaster toasts the symbol of any NFL right on your piece of toast!

6. Leatherman Multitool

Daniel has one of these and he is obsessed with it. He always has it in his pocket and he uses it for pretty much everything. Not only is it a pocket knife but it has 21 other tools including 2 screwdrivers, pliers, wire cutters, a metal file and so much more. It is the ultimate tool for any handyman!

7. Fun Socks

I get Daniel socks for every occasion! Chrismas, Fathers Day, His Birthday, he always gets socks and he loves it! I think no Chrismas is complete without the gift of socks!

8. Bluetooth Headphones

These noise-isolating headphones from Wearhous connect to any smartphone for great clear sound. I know Daniel will love these as he sometimes needs to concentrate on his work without hearing all of the noise from me and Fé around the house!

9. Master Bluetooth Padlock

This padlock is so cool! You can use an app on your smartphone to unlock this padlock! You can even add others to the lock temporarily so they can open it as well! No there is no need to remember a code or carry around a key!

10. Stanley 210-Piece Tool Set

No home is complete without a great tool set! This toolkit from Stanley has every piece you would ever need for fixing things around the house or DIY!
