Galentine's Gift Guide

"Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself." ~ William Faulkner

Hey sweetie pies! Happy Wednesday! I know some people don't celebrate Valentine's day like that or don't have a significant other to make plans with. If this sounds like you, this post may be perfect for you. So my best girlfriends and I are doing a Galentine's gift swap where we draw a name and get a gift for that person. I love the idea so much that I thought I would share it with you guys.

We set up a budget so that we don't have to break the bank and no one has a case of shopper's remorse because they went over and beyond to buy their gift but didn't feel like it was reciprocated. This idea is super fun to do with your friends. (I mean your friends are practically your soulmates anyway, am I right? Or am I right?)

I put together some gifts that are great gift ideas and most (if not all) items pictured here are budget friendly.


Galentine's Gift Guide


I tried to cover gifts for all different personalities and preferences. The candle or decorative tray would be perfect for that friend that is a homebody or into interior decorating. If you have a friend that's a coffee addict like moi, then this Kate Spade mug is absolutely perfect for her! For that active friend who works alot, makes a lot of smoothies or juices, this monogrammed tumbler is so adorbz! For that friend that is ALWAYS on the go, shopping and/or traveling, this handbag or wallet is great for her! (And don't even get me started on that scalloped detail on that wallet, ugh yes PLEASE!) I have a bestie that loves anything with her initials on it so she would be head over heels in love with this monogrammed necklace. These necklaces are very popular with bloggers, especially if they have a preppy style. For the jewelry collector/fashionista that necklace or these convertible jacket earrings (which can be 8 ways) will be a total hit. These earrings are brand new and are already a big favorite. Of course I have this adorable planner for your organized friend and luxe faux fur phone case for the diva out of the group. (And trust me, there is one lolz) Makeup junkies will love this liquid lipstick set that is comes in 3 shades. And lastly, do you have a friend that's ALWAYS misplacing her keys?  Opt to give a cute faux fur pom keychain. I absolutely LOVE these things! I have one of my keys and I always have one on my purse. Super cute, super fun and I can almost bet you that she won't lose her keys anymore. :)

Have any plans for the 14th? If so, leave me a comment below. I would love to read all about them! I love you guys and I will see you back here Friday. 

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

3 Pros and Cons Being a Freelancer

"Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free." ~ Jim Morrison ***Stock Image by Wonderlass***
Are you or have you ever thought about being a freelancer? The entire concept for most means freedom to do what you want. Setting your hours. Getting to sleep in. Working when you feel like it. While some of those are true, I think people get a false perception for what it's really like to be a freelancer. I freelance dance and write so I want to share some pro's and con's. These statements are my own opinions so I suggest taking it with a grain of salt.
Pros 1. You are ultimately your own boss. You can dictate what hours you work and how long you work for the most part. Being your own boss means independence and not having to answer to someone else. 
2. You can work as little or as much as you want. Since you are your own boss, you can determine how many projects you take on at a time. Usua…
