Themed Presents: Truffles All Around!

I know I have mentioned this to you all before, but I love giving presents.
I love giving presents even more when they are themed!  Something seems just so pretty and put together when presents are all cohesive around one theme.
Therefore, this year I thought it might be fun to have a little mini series in preparation for Christmas of some super cute themed presents

And my first one is...
Truffles
Because who doesn't like truffles?
For this present I chose a combination of bath products called "Tub Truffles", and chocolate truffles!

The tub truffles are a bath melt, you place them in hot water and they begin to melt and flow through the water.  I ordered the Warm Vanilla Sugar scent, and they truly look and smell edible!  As they melt they release their scent, and make the water feel so soft and silky!  They are made from cocoa butter, so not only does the water feel amazing, so does your skin!  You can get them for $14.99-$15.99 on Alexis Clare's Etsy shop, Whipped Up Wonderful
If you prefer bath bombs or bubble bars (both of which I recently ordered!) she has a wide selection of those, as well as perfume, face masks, "bath macaroons," and much more.  She also offers a monthly bath bomb subscription service!  
Not only does this shop provide gorgeous products, she also has free shipping, wonderful (and fast!) customer service, and a beautiful Christian attitude.  We spoke recently, and she was generous enough to provide a coupon code just for you all!  Enter "SAWYOUONTHEWEB" at checkout and you will receive 10% off your entire order!  But here is the catch, if you want to order this for someone for Christmas and insure it arrives in time you MUST order before December 7th!

For the chocolate truffle piece of the present, what you get really depends on how much you want to spend!  
You can go the route I have shown here and buy Lindor Truffles for $3 to $4 a bag.  
You can go more expensive with Godiva truffles and get a small four piece box for $10, a bag of assorted truffles for $12, a six piece flight for $16, twelve pieces for $30, twenty-four for $50, or a gift set that can range anywhere from $42 to the "Grand Holiday Luxury Basket" at $375!!  They are actually running a special right now where you can get a four, six, eight, nine, or nineteen piece set, with a $25 Godiva gift card for $33 to $55, which is a pretty great deal!
Finally, there is always the option of making truffles yourself!  My friend Anina, who did a guest blog post here of Saturday, has a recipe for red velvet cake balls similar to truffles that were amazing!  If you prefer the traditional chocolate route, search "homemade chocolate truffles on Google or Pinterest and you will be flooded with decadent results!
Chocolate truffles can get very expensive, very fast...  But, there are many options and it is completely up to you how much you have to spend.  A box of homemade truffles would be just as thoughtful as a $50 box!  


That being said, in my mind the perfect version of this gift would be a gift basket with a Holiday themed flight of truffles and a gift card, a box of tub truffles (and maybe a bath bomb or two...), and a bottle of champagne (or sparkling grape juice for those of us who can't drink!).  You could also fill it out by adding in a bath pouf, bubble bath, bath salts... the possibilities are endless!  
And this isn't just a "Christmas present," it would also be perfect for a Birthday, Anniversary, Wedding, or Valentines day! This is an absolutely gorgeous gift in general, and perfect to carry straight to the whirlpool tub for a ready made bath!

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's


Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
