The Perfect Cozy Gifts + Link Up

Cozy Style

Between the first snow and freezing temperatures here in New England, the only thing that I've been wanting to do is snuggle on the couch in my favorite sweatpants, under a cozy blanket.  In fact, that's exactly what I've been doing most of this week since my kids and I have all been sick.  I can't tell you how happy I am that I found these Lou and Grey sweatpants, as I've been living in them.  Seriously, I've worn them four days this week, which I probably shouldn't be admitting.... Not only is the jogger style super cute, by they are SO comfortable, and they wash well, which is a plus for this momma!

Speaking of comfort, if you're still looking for the perfect holiday gifts, I highly suggest ones that provide coziness and warmth.  That's why I'm giving you a gift guide of all things cozy, rounding up my top picks that will make you, or someone special, want to snuggle all day long.

Cozy Gift Guide

I bought this cardigan this past summer, and literally live in it.  Not only does it look great over everything, but it is super soft, and comes in ten colors!  In fact, I think it's time to add another one to my wardrobe!

(Shown above on couch) 
I bought this throw in the ivory color during Black Friday, and it's been my favorite purchase yet this season.  Not only is it super soft, but I love the subtle faux fur, making it the perfect blanket to drape over your furniture for added texture. It's available in three colors.

You may have noticed this scarf floating around Instagram, as it is the IT scarf of the season.  When I finally purchased it for myself, I realized why.  It's SO soft!  I want to wrap myself up in it everyday. Plus, the oversized fit and fringe hem make it the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.  It's under $50 and comes in several colors.

 Is there anything cozier to wear around the house than a bathrobe?  I love how a high quality bathrobe can give a luxurious feeling, and this one from Barefoot Dreams does just that.  It's seriously a dream!

Pajama sets are my favorite to wear around the holidays, or when I'm traveling.  This one is just so festive and cute!  I'm also loving this set here.

 I live in sweaters in the wintertime, and this cable knit one is not only classic, but the buttons add a fun and unexpected detail.  It will go with everything, making it a great gift!

Beanies add the perfect finishing touch to any cozy look, plus keep you extra warm.  I love the oversized pom pom on this one!

Not only are (most) bralettes more comfortable than bras, but they look cute under tee shirts and big sweaters, adding the perfect layering piece to those cozy looks.

 In my opinion, UGG makes the best slippers.  You can never go wrong with the classic Dakota style, but these plush ones are on the top of my list.  Not only are they cozy, but the bow adds a cute, feminine look.

10. Initial Mug 
When I think of being cozy, the image drinking hot coco in front of the fireplace always comes to mind.  Mugs are always on my gift giving list, as I believe, one can never have too many.  I also love giving ones with initials or that are monogrammed, as they add a personal touch.

As I mentioned above, I'm obsessed with these sweatpants!  Hurry, they're currently 50% off and ship free!

Stitch Fix for the Holidays + Link Up

Cold shoulder ruffle sweater
*This post contains affiliate links.

Earlier this week I received my latest Stitch Fix shipment, and I have to say, it was one of the best yet!  Those who have been following this blog for the past year, or longer, know that I've been really happy with my Fixes.  My stylist usually gets my style spot on, which is why I went from receiving monthly Fixes, to every other month, because they were draining my wallet!  Now, they haven't all been perfect, but loving eight out of the past ten shipments is a pretty good number in my book.

This month's Fix was filled with pieces that were ideal for the holiday season and beyond.  The item that first caught my eye, which I needed to try on right away, were these Level 99 iridescent splatter jeans.  Not only did they fit perfectly, but I love how the grey paint splatters shimmered in the right lighting, making them perfect for any holiday event.  It totally looked like I was wearing sequin pants in these photos, but if you look closely, you can see that they're shinny splatters of paint!  The other item that caught my eye was this cold shoulder sweater.  You all know that I'm a sucker for anything cold shoulder, so that mixed with the ruffle detailing had me excited to try it on.  The fit was spot on, but I was a little hesitant to keep this one, as I had just added this cold shoulder sweater to my wardrobe.  However, since I didn't yet own a burgundy sweater, and the cut was slightly different, I decided to keep this one too!  Together they make a perfect holiday outfit.  I finished my look with my favorite grey booties (now under $100), and love the edge that they added with the splatter pants.
To make this look a bit dresser, I would switch out my boots for a pair of killer heels, and add more sparkle with my jewelry.

Also included in my Fix was a cute fitted skirt, a bell sleeve blouse (which I also loved) and a pair of fringe earrings (items shown at end of post).  Because I only allow myself to keep a item or two each Fix, these were sent back.

I have been using Stitch Fix for a year and a half now, and love the service.  As someone who is a constant shopper (aka shopaholic), I love that I get a package full of clothing delivered to my doorstep every other month (you can get it as often, or little as you would like), with no obligation to buy!  Even though I consider myself to be a stylist, it's always fun to have someone else's eye, because they introduce you to things you would never think of trying on yourself.  Not only is my favorite sweater from Stitch Fix (remember this one here), but I have discovered several new brands that I love through the service.  If you're looking for the perfect gift for that special woman in your life (mom, sister, best friend), then I highly suggest a Stitch Fix Gift Card!  They come in any denomination over $20, and are perfect for those of you who are last minute shoppers, because you can print the gift cards from home!  Not only are you giving the gift of style, along with your own personal shopper, but it's also a gift of convenience.  Perfect for those busy women in your life who don't have time (or like) to shop.  And ladies, don't forget that Stitch Fix has men's!  Give those men in your life a little style!

Getting Holiday Ready With Babble Boxx

 *This post is sponsored by  All opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands that make Threads for Thomas possible

The holiday season had arrived, which means this month will be filled with parties, events, and time with the family.  For all of these occasions, I like to look and feel by best, and thanks to Babble Box for sending me a variety of products to try,  I now have everything that I need to look party perfect.  From waxing, to teeth whitening, and achieving the perfect holiday makeup, here are the products that will have you stepping out the door in style.

Woosh Beauty Fold Out Face

Woosh Beauty

I love the idea of Woosh Beauty's Fold Out Face!  It's everything that you need in one palette, making beauty on the go, easy.  Included in the palette are four different eye shadows, two perfectors (for concealing), two blush colors, and a variety of highlight and contour colors.  The Palette also includes a mirror and the brushes that you need to apply the makeup.  Not sure how to apply?  No worries, it comes with step by step directions!  There are five different palettes to chose from (I use medium-light) and each palette is only $59.  The makeup is mineral based, Paraben free, and not tested on animals.  I love that I can achieve different looks with just one palette, and the highlight is amazing!

Use code: BB15OFF for 15% off your Woosh Beauty Purchase!

Cheetah Print Boot

It's no secret that I'm obsessed with these cheetah print booties, as you have seen them on the blog (here), and on my Instagram several of times already!  I had been wanting to add a pair of leopard/cheetah print boots to my wardrobe, so when I saw this pair in my Babble Boxx, I was beyond excited.  I love the low heel, making them great for everyday with jeans and a chunky sweater.  However, they would be perfect paired with a LBD, or black jeans and a blouse, for a casual holiday party.

eyebrow waxing

Now this product I was both excited and nervous to try.  As someone who consistently plucks her eyebrows, trying an at home wax was a little intimidating.  However I did find this product pretty easy to use.  It's a natural, non heat formula in a slim precision applicator that makes waxing in smaller areas easy.  You swipe the wax where you want it, apply the cotton strip, then peel away!  Any extra wax simply washes off with water.  I do have to admit, that my first attempt using this, the wax didn't apply well. After heating the product up a little, I found it to work much better.  I'll definitely be using it again to shape my brows, as it can get smaller hairs, and I can't wait to try it on other areas too!

All Natural Dental Care

This is the product that I was most excited to try!  I have tired multiple teeth whitening products in the past, and non of them have given me the results that I had hoped for.  Primal Life Dental Kit includes the 100% natural Boost Whitening Paste, LED Teeth Whitener, All Natural Toothpowder, and a Charcoal Ion Toothbrush.  Together they work to brighten you smile.  Not only do I love that the products are natural, but the LED is powered by plugging it into your phone, so you can check you emails or browse the Internet while you teeth are being whitened!  I have used this product twice, and am already starting to notice a brighter smile!

Want a whiter smile for the holidays, use code PLOBOXX17 for 20% off your purchase!

Paris Hiton Fragrance

I have to admit that I don't normally wear perfume, so when I saw this Rosé Rush by Paris Hilton, I was a little scared to try it.  However, I was pleasantly surprised by the feminine scent which includes hints of florals and fruits.  Although it is little strong for my taste to wear everyday, it is perfect for a night out or holiday party!

Are you holiday party ready??
