Happy Friday babes! Here again with another #coffeetalk. We are beyond thrilled with how great the response to these posts have been, and it’s starting to get to a point where we are having trouble squeezing in every single question, but please know we’re trying to get to them all! We appreciate all of your questions SO much! xx
1. My mom is hard to shop for – any unique ideas for Mother’s Day gifts?
Mother’s Day gifts that (we think) are hard to go wrong with are: spa gift certificate (facial, mani/pedi, blowout, or massage), a photo book of current and past family photos (or a framed photograph), a necklace or bracelet with family initials, a new phone case, or a coupon book (like the kind you made when you were little lol) with a few special mother/daughter dates – lunch date, mani/pedi date, movie date, happy hour date, etc. As moms, we can say that personalized/thoughtful gifts are really special and mean the most!
For our wedding, one of our friends cut up our invitation (into pretty strips that curled up), and put them inside clear glass Christmas ornaments. It was such a cute gift that we love getting out every holiday season! There are so many great ideas here as well!
8. Any suggestions for high-quality, yet affordable blazers? Looking for some fun colors or patterns!
We have both had good luck with blazers at H&M and ASOS! They are affordable and pretty good quality. This pink one is perfect for spring and so is this stripped one. This sleeveless one is one isn’t colorful but it’s so cute and on trend!
9. I’m interested in selling clothes I no longer wear. Any recommendations on how to go about it? My clothes range from Forever21 to higher end.
We have both used Poshmark and have sold quite a few items on it – especially pieces from H&M, Forever21, etc! You can also bring them to consignment shops like Plato’s closet. For high end items we would suggest trying Ebay. You can usually get more $$$. Fashionphile and Trendlee are great for selling designer handbags and accessories.
10. What are your 4-5 must have classic investment handbags and how do you take care of your handbags?
4-5 is a lot, but if you’re wanting to build your collection, we say purchase ones by different designers. YSL (love this one), Gucci (yes please to this one), Chanel (this is a classic), and Celine (love this one) would be our top favorites. We always go for neutral colors when splurging on bags – bright colors are fun, but you’re more likely to get tired of them.
11. How do you organize all your beauty products?
Meggan: My bathroom is very small with limited storage so I bought this cabinet to store all my hair and skin products. I keep my makeup in a drawer and use dividers for lipsticks, brushes, etc. I will do a little tour on snapchat this weekend!
Brooke: I keep all of my makeup in my GLAMbox, and seriously love it! If you have the counter space, it’s a splurge that’s worth it (in my opinion).
12. I’m looking for an “everyday” black dress for summer that is versatile enough to wear to work, happy hour, etc.
This one is is perfect! It’s not too short, would look cute with a blazer and you can dress it down with sandals. A simple shift dress (love this one and this one) is versatile and you can add some flare with accessories! This slipdress is another option and it’s on sale!
