"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

Fashionable Giving part 6: The friend with everything

Hi doll faces! I hope you are all enjoying some relaxing time off! I know I am going to enjoy every minute of my four day weekend. Today was shopping with my dad and tomorrow is baking day!! I went to my first holiday party tonight, which was a wonderful opportunity to bedazzle myself with sparkle! Have I mentioned that I really love this time of year? Do yall have any special holiday traditions? My dad and I always make this special shopping trip to get stocking stuffers for my mom and then my whole family always spends Christmas Eve together (even though my parents are no longer together) which is so special. We usually watch Chevy Chase's Christmas Vacation, and my mom hates that movie but she still watches it every year because she knows it makes us happy. What a good mom, right!

Ok loves, we are truly down to the last minute now, and I am embarrassed to tell you that I still need a present for my dad. Yikes! I guess I will be braving the chaos of the stores tomorrow and venturing out to find that perfect something for him. If you are in the same boat, and trying to shop for a tricky someone in your life then you don't want to miss the final installment of Fashionable Giving: the pal who has it all! Do you have that one friend who just truly has everything she could need, and a few things that no one needs? Don't fear shopping for this special someone- just view it as a challenge to your creativity!

Why not give your pal a reminder of where they came from and how much they loved it with one of these vintage maps hand-embroidered with a red heart. And if you don't see the city you are looking for on refashioned's etsy shop, just send her an email: she takes custom orders! Price: $14-20 Buy here
You can never go wrong with the gift of time, so this Christmas plan  a whole special day for your favorite impossible to shop for pal!
