What I'm giving people I love this holiday season

Hello babes! 

Sharing the brands I love, and the things I love to give this holiday. I like to keep my gifts unique, unrelated to clothes (unless it's amazing) and more of something they didn't expect but end up using all the time.

This list is for family, friends and almost everything on this list is under $100 (but around $30-$50). 

Can you believe it's December? I mean.....yay? I am actually pumped about 2018, I LOVE life rn, but I have a really good feeling ya know.

Okay to the gift guide! Enjoy xx

Moon Juice Pantry Products

I don't know about you, but I am a huge fan of giving people products that they may not buy themselves but will use and love. I am a HUGE fan of Moon Juice, all their products are tasty, thoughtful, and packed full of healthy ingredients. I love too, that they are unique and I would never make their stuff myself, or find it in stores. My favorites are the crackers, and crisps, but the chocolates and elixirs and dusts are amazing too!

Sage Wellness Essential Oils

I love me some SAGE. Lots of people don't use or know about essential oils, and they don't need to know all the woo-woo about it to know that they smell and make you feel amazing. I have my peppermint halo (the peppermint essential oil stick) in the car and in my purse, and it helps me to just reset, and get through the day. Perfect as a stocking stuffer :). 

Salt Lamp from Lenevo

Do you guys remember the post I did with Lenevo? The apartment tour? I LOVE my lamp. Every time people come over to my house they comment on it, and its such a boho chic add to the house for really cheap actually. 

BKR Water Bottle

Love these babies. Feel good in your hand and super cute for the fitness fan in your life.

Collagen from Vital Proteins

I can't say it enough - collagen works. I can tell in my skin when I am using it, and it makes such a difference in the plumpness and texture. I LOVE any of their collagens from Vital Proteins. 

Four Sigmatic Teas

Sponsor of the podcast, Four Sigmatic medicinal mushrooms are so good for a little mood boost, and as a feel good tasty tea. I have every one of their products, and this is a really fun gift to give to the people in your life that are health curious. 

Crystals from Energy Muse

Y'all know I love me some crystals. I give them as wedding gifts, birthday gifts, basically whenever I can. It's one of the ways in my life I know I can give someone good energy, vibes or protection and it's freaking gorgeous :).  Almost 30 Podcast has a discount code: Almost30 for 15% off!

Planner from Rifle Paper & Co (via Papyrus)

My favorite planners ever, I love to give these to my girlfriends because I use mine everyday. Its my BIBLE. These are structured perfectly, and the design is STUNNING.

Rent the Runway Membership

I am a HUGE FAN of RTR. I use it every month to keep my wardrobe fresh and exciting. It's amazing to have beautiful new expensive pieces rotating through, and then have new stuff for events and shoots. Their brands are also on point, too. 

Donate to a charity on their behalf: Find one that you love, or that you may love and then make a donation. 

Sweater from Athleta

Honestly their sweaters are something that everyone can love. They are so soft, so cozy, so versatile and you can honestly wear it every single day. I would have never thought that I would wear it so much, but it's that thing that I never want to take off. 

Cuyana Makeup Bags

My friend Meghan gave me these makeup bags as a gift, and I have never been more grateful. They are SO quality, gorgeous and the perfect size. I've had them for about a year and the zippers are still intact and working perfectly and the leather is smooth like BUTTAH. Highly recommend as a gift for you or anyone you LOVE. 


What other things do you like to give the people you love for Christmas? Let me know in the comments, would LOVE to make this list grow.

So excited it's December, babes. I love you.

5 Pantry Products I'm Loving Right Now

Hello hi! 

So glad you're here. How are you? Feeling ready for the holidays? SAME. I am so ready to slow it down and chill out a bit. I want to just chilllllllllllllllllllll a little. Lindsey and I are not recording in December or January at all, working on YouTube stuff, Patreon stuff, and just taking a step back to work on the business part of Almost 30 Podcast. 

It's good to have a few months or time to just clean up, slow down, organize, strategize, reset...I want to do that in all aspects of my life this winter (even though it is absolutely not winter in LA rn, ha).

So for Hundred I'll give it a little facelift, I'll work on travel guides, and then for life, I want to really be more thoughtful about 2018 and what I want to create/where I want to spend my time.

What are you guys doing this winter? Let me know in the comments, always inspired by you!

I wanted to share some pantry products that I am LOVING right now. When I was thinking of things I need to share with you, all of these items are those! 


5 New Pantry Products I am LOVING right now:

Four Sigmatic Brain Stick Pack: This is the best part of my morning right now. For some reason, I really don't like to drink water in the morning, when I know I should, so having this delicious tasting brain stick mixed with water. I feel a bit sharper, happier and it helps to hold me over until breakfast. I throw these in my purse, in my suitcase when I travel and always have them at my desk. Use the code: Almost30 for a discount babes.

Chi Tonic: This makes the BEST latte - ever. It has tons of chi, and gives you a little mood boost. Some of my favorite ingredients in there are:

  • Astragalus, to build Chi and help with your immunity
  • Shizandra, helps to calm and center the mind
  • Dan Gui moves and builds the blood and calms the liver, which can make you feel more calm overall.
  • Cinnamon, which is great for your skin 
  • Licorice, the great harmonizer, helps to balance out your entire body
  • Lychee for happiness - it's said to be a mood booster!
  • Jujube for blood chi and spiritual activation :) something I LOVE. 
  • Rhodiola grown high in the Himalayas this chi builder and blood oxygenator contains serotonin and dopamine activators. So it makes you happy

Silver Fern Fiber Sweetener: I have been hearing mixed reviews on Stevia lately, so I wanted to mix it up and try a better sweetener. I love that this brand is natural, organic, gluten free, vegan, and has fiber in it. Regular sweetners definitely don't do that :). 

Trader Joes Pumpkin Pie Spice: SO GOOD. Love it in oatmeal, lattes, or sprinkled over cookies. When ya want to get your basic on it's the best. 

Moon Juice Green Fermented Seed Crisps & Rainbow Juice Crackers: On any given day, you can find me eating these crisps. They are the most delicious thing, salty, crunchy, light, but filling...GAH. They are raw, full of nutrients, low carb and high protein, plus have zero sugar. I LOVE THEM. The green ones are lighter, really low in calories, only make from fermented items and have a bit of a spicy vibe. The rainbow ones are thicker, have pumpkin seeds and are made from the pulp of Moon Juice. So you get those phytonutrients in there, too.
