The Best Gift Guide for Her (or him) all under $50

The best Gift Guide to get you through the season and UNDER $50!!!  With Black Friday being today then Cyber Monday then Christmas and the Holiday Season right around the corner I've gathered some of my most favorite gifts this year!  You're.  Welcome.  These bad boys are the perfect gifts for your best friend, the girl who has everything, a new mom, the wino (your drinking buddy), the tech girl, the home decorator and more!!! I've even put together a little man approved list for the special guy in your life!

Thanks to my new favorite app KEEP!  It is seriously amazing.  You can buy anything you want in ONE yes ONE shopping cart.  That means only entering in your shipping and credit card information once!  You can even shop "online" in the app or in the app they have pre selected gift ideas you can shop from.  You can even type in the name of a store and filter that way!  It's seriously a huge time saver and I HIGHLY recommend it!

So happy shopping!  I hope everyone had a Happy Turkey Day!

Keeping Up With Khloe Kardashian

"Have you met me before?  I haven't, but we can be friends!"  Is probably my favorite line from the entire conversation with Khloe.

                                         


As you can see I had the best Monday of all time!  I got the opportunity to chat with Miss Bosslady herself, Khloe Kardashian and a few of her entourage!  And let me tell you... we had the best time ( I mean I can't speak for her well maybe I can after I got this sweet note!)  I don't think I've ever laughed so hard in my life.



I really appreciate everyone submitting questions for me to ask Khloe, but we ended up really just chatting with not much of an interview style because we all know my ADD kicked in and space cadet Ady took off a million miles a minute just chatting with Khloe..... Kardashian.  How. Freaking. Cool.  Just another day in the life... no big deal.  I could have talked to her all day.  She is seriously gorgeous and cool as shit!  Not to mention so easy to talk to!

We chatted about so many things and I've decided to share just a few with y'all below!  Time in the Hamptons, Atlanta, what it's like on camera all the time and the pressure, working out, and of course when we get to hang out again!


Keeping up with Khloe Kardashian from Ady Wright on Vimeo.  Not the best quality as it is Skype.

If you want more on my time in the Hamptons check out my time in East Hampton here and my time in South Hampton and partying at 1Oak here.

So hard to go back to normal after feeling so cool for a hot minute!  A big thanks to Hpnotiq Sparkle for setting this up!  Bubbles for everyone this Holiday season!!!

See you in HOTlanta Khloe!

Not a Morning Person and my lovely guest Martinis & Bikinis

I am so obsessed with Emily over at Martinis and Bikinis!  She and I get along great because I.  HATE.  MORNINGS!  Like I can't even.  Literally Linda... #icant So take it away Emily on how bad mornings SUCK!

Hi readers of Just Add Glitter! I'm Emily from over at Martinis & Bikinis and I'm excited that Ady was nice enough to let me take over her blog for the day! I wanted to share a lil secret about myself...

I was cursed with not being able to cope with mornings quite as well as our co-existing morning people. If you happen to be a non-morning person, you may experience the same symptoms as I do:

1. The sound of an alarm clock is like nails scratching on a chalk board. The snooze button will surely be hit anywhere from 3 to 5 times each and every morning.

2. Don't even ask me to go workout with you in the mornings before work. Not.Gonna.Happen. I really wish I could though!

3. I'm always counting the amount of hours sleep I got from the night before to figure out if I should really be THAT tired.

Speaking of that, I need this shirt asap.
4. I never have time for breakfast before leaving for work. Sleep has always taken priority so I've become accustomed to lean pockets or smoothies to-go.

5. I seriously need about 30 minutes of silence and coffee before any conversation will happen right after waking up. No rational decisions will ever be made during those 30 minutes.

6. The most exciting part of the weekend is being able to sleep in without the disruption of an alarm clock.

7. I've accidentally turned off my alarm clock instead of hitting snooze on several occasions. Hair and makeup out of the window! Rush, rush, rush...

8. Appearing to be bitchy toward morning people. How do they do it?

9. Nodding off at your desk after lunch. The US really needs to adopt a siesta nap after lunchtime like Spain, Italy and some Latin American countries. Please!

10. I'm always internally rationalizing and scheming how to get out of early morning appointments, meetings, and other obligations.

How do you deal with mornings?

Feel free to hop over to my blog space Martinis & Bikinis and say Hi! I'd love to hear your thoughts and advice on how to become a morning person.

You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

xx Emily


Is she not hilarious?!?!  I love love love her blog so go check it out and say hi for me!
