Christmas Gifts for $30 and Under!

I exchange gifts with about six or seven of my closest friends every Christmas, which can get a little pricey. I try to get each of them a different gift each year, but it's always hard to find cute, relatively inexpensive gifts for them. This year, I started looking early, and have found so many cute gifts for $30 or less, so I thought I'd share some ideas with y'all! 

Victoria's Secret Cable-knit Infinity Scarf--$19.99

Sephora Mini Shopping Bag Makeup Palette--$15

A cute dress from Forever 21--$24.80

1-year InStyle Magazine Subscription--$18

Marley Lilly Woven Gold and Fuschia Leather Cuff Bracelet--$19.99 

Clinique "Smoothie Kisses" Set--$28

Jonathan Adler iPhone Case--$28

J. Crew Satin Jewelry Roll--$22.50 

A 3-month Birchbox Subscription--$30 

Marley Lilly Scarf--$14.99

Surviving Finals Week

Can you believe that today begins the the first full week of December?! For me, that means it's finals week--yikes! I have one today, two tomorrow, one on Thursday, and my final one on Friday. If I can make it through tomorrow, I think I'll be fine. As I'm sure you'd all agree, finals week is super-stressful, and everyone is a bit more on edge than usual. To survive finals week, I rely on a few things that I just can't live without: 

My study spot in the library 

Goldfish, my favorite on-the-go snack 

InStyle for when I take "study breaks" 

Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Lattes 

Michael Buble Music--right now I'm obsessed with my MB Holiday Pandora Station

My Lilly Thermal Mug for Coffee refills

My cozy bed that I miss oh, so much while I'm studying away in the library! 

What can't you live without during finals week? Hope y'all have a wonderful Monday!

Bring on the Caffeine

I am sorry I've been such a terrible blogger lately! I am so behind on reading and commenting on all of y'alls blogs, and I am so sorry! This week is absolutely insane, with papers and final assignments due, not to mention that next week is exam week--eeek! Right now, I'm just trying to make it through Friday, and then I'll start worrying about exams. Right now, I'm loading up on this: 


and hitting this.... 


Hope your week is stress-free! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Elle and Em Desktop Planner

A few weeks ago, the fabulous Elle & Em contacted me about reviewing their new desktop planner, and I happily obliged! I currently use a Lilly planner, which I love, but one thing that really bothers me about the Lilly planners is that the week-at-a-glance doesn't have a ton of space under each day. I love that the Elle & Em planners have a ton of space under each day, and each day is also divided into sections of time, from 8AM-5PM. I love that there's a time for each appointment I need to write in my planner! 

The planner also features a year-at-a-glance section, and a month-at-a-glance section, which is perfect for type-As, like me. 

The theme of the planner is the "A year in the life of a happy girl," which is based on Audrey Hepburn's famous quote, "Happiest girls are the prettiest girls." Each month showcases a gorgeous watercolor print, which I love, too. 

All of the watercolor prints featured in the planner. 

The best part is that this planner is small and light enough for me to tote around in my Longchamp or my school bag. This planner is perfect for anyone who is looking for a simple, but classic planner for the 2012 year! Click here to purchase a lovely planner!

P.S. Sorry for the terrible photos--my Blackberry is going crazy, and all of my pictures are off-center!

Also, SouthernBeaus has the most adorable preppy clutches, and they have offered my readers a 10% discount when they use the code MissSouthernPrep at checkout from now until December 17th! Check them out for the cutest bow ties for your beau or clutches for your best friend!

My favorite!

Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

Monograms Galore

Last weekend, I babysat for the preppiest family, and they had monograms all over their house! I have never seen a house more full of monograms, and I loved it! I couldn't believe all of the monogrammed items displayed in their home, so of course their home inspired me to look-up tons of monogrammed stuff for my future home! Here are some of my favorites:

Maxwell 1 Bath Towel traditional towels


Monogram Applique Pillow Cover  bed pillows





Caitlin Creer Interiors: Elizabeth Kimberly Designs



How have you incorporated monograms into your home? Have a wonderful Monday!
