This one is for the Guys-Groomsmen Gifts

Hi Fash Dolls! We spoke bridesmaids gifts last week but we can't forget about the men!There is nothing quite like a bromance. Your fiancé's groomsmen are as special to him as your bridesmaids are to you. These are his boys. At this point you are probably able to laugh with them too! Not only does your man have a bond with his friends but I am sure you have swapped embarrassing stories about your guy, they have almost become your friends too. So don't forget to get them a little something something as a thank you for being apart of your  special day.

For our groomsmen gifts we bought the guys their shirt, tie, & pocket square to go with their suits. We hope that they will be able to use these items again or at least the shirt & tie. Check out a suggested list of other groomsmen gift ideas!

  1. Cuff Links- This is a pretty traditional gift but a great idea!
  2. Cigars- What guy doesn't love a good cigar?!
  3. Personalized Beer Mug- This is nice because it will defiantly get use & remind them of your special day.
  4. Flask- These can be personalized, leather, steel, etc!
  5. BBQ Grilling Set-Guys love cigars but they also love grilling.
  6. Personalized Cap Catcher Bottle Opener-I have seen a lot of these while getting ideas for our guys, it is a nice concept.

Well I hope that this has given you some groomsmen gift inspo! Discuss them over with your future hubby, I am sure he will be on board. Like I said last week Etsy is a great resource for your wedding, including bridal party gifts.

Till next time fash dolls. Happy Planning!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

Sorry Lulu

Sorry (not sorry) Lulu, Lulu Lemon. Not that I am hating on Lulu Lemon I actually really like their product but dang those prices are killing a new homeowners budget! This active look is brought to you by T.J. Maxx!

If you have been following you know that I got married in June & bought a home at the beginning of the month. Needless to say I have been on a budget for sometime. I have staples which I have spent more money on. But when it comes to my activewear I tend to not spend as much. They get sweaty, go thru the wash all the time,and just get beat up. T.J. Maxx & Marshalls carries affordable activewear that fits in in my budget.

To get into shape for the wedding I really got into barre. It was easy on my back (I slipped a disc) & toned me up. I facilitated this with running & playing soccer!

I don't consider myself a health freak but I think it is important to exercise regularly & eat healthy (I try to stick to 80/20). I find that when I stick to this I feel more energized!

Well fash dolls till next time!

Stay Sassy + God Bless.

Pucker Up-LipSense

Honestly I am not a cosmetics guru. My daily make up routine consists of moisturizer, bare minerals, mascara, & chap stick, eye shadow on a good day. But I found a lip gloss that has been absolutely amazing, LipSense. It doesn't smudge or rub off & it's waterproof! I can literally put it on & within seconds of drying give my husband a kiss. It won't rub off on his lips so we both won't be wearing it.

The color I am sporting is cappuccino but there are plenty of other colors to choose from. To get the best look apply 3 coats of color between each time let the color dry 3-5 seconds. Then apply a coat of gloss! You are then good to go for the day. I accidently slept in mine once. When applying color you may feel tingling the first few times but this will subside.

You can purchase each piece separately or a starter kit bundle. The starter kit includes a color, gloss, and oops lip color remover. Also available separately is the moisturizing lip balm which also works wonders.

I got my kit from K Posh Boutique get one here & receive 15% off by using my coupon code >GIGI15<.

Give this a shot for yourself! If you have beauty suggestions feel free to leave them in the comments. I am also open to trying new things.

Till next time dolls! Stay Sassy + God Bless.
