Gift Guide // For Him

 Hey there friends! I'm so thrilled to be sharing my {last minute} gift guide for the special man in your life. My focus was on practical gifts with a stylish edge. Also, some of my picks include things your guy probably doesn't know he needs...like the Birchbox subscription and stainless steel ice cubes. But I promise once he has them, he won't know how he lived without them!

Hope these ideas help!
Can you believe Christmas is next week?!


Guest Post // Holliday Favorites

I'm thrilled to welcome my friend, Hailee Holliday, to the blog today to share her festive favorites!

Hello Mae Badiyan readers! I'm Hailee and so happy to be here talking about the three things that are catching my eye this year...bows, bling, and fur. From sparkly eyeshadow to trendy coffee mugs, these items are a must for any fashionista's wish list this season. If you were born with glitter in your veins like me...I'm sure these "Holliday" favorites will keep you extra warm and full of cheer!


That Kate Spade watch is on my list! Love it! 
How adorable is that monogram mug...and under $10!
Thanks so much for stopping by Hailee!
See y'all back here tomorrow for a sparkly Friday's Fancies! xx


fashion files // the fur collar

I'm rather obsessed with the faux fur collar. I have a cheap one I got from H&M and I wear it with everything this time of year! Sequins? A striped t-shirt? A blazer? Yes, yes and yes!

Hope your holiday season is off to a great start!
I know I've been a little MIA lately, things have just been so incredibly busy (wonderful, but busy!)
Although I'm not over here on the blog as often as I'd like, you can always catch up with me on Facebook and Instagram.
I update almost daily! 
And I do have quite a few fun posts coming up in the next few weeks
See you soon!

have a fabulous day,
