Make Gift Giving Much Easier With These Cute Premade Gift Bags

Send ribbon premade gift bags

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

I think gift giving is one of the hardest things! It's such a struggle to figure out what someone might want all while staying in a good budget. I found an awesome pre-made gift bag company called Send Ribbon. They make gift giving so much easier!

They have the pre-made gift options, or you can create a custom gift bag. The pre-made ones are a better price, so I recommend going with those. It would be really fun to personalize a custom gift bag though.

My favorite of the pre-made gifts was the one I got, which is the Thank You Kindly one. The bag it comes in is like a tan canvas material and says Thank You in a cute font on it.

It has six fun gifts inside of it and costs $38. The gifts in it are a cucumber facemask, toffee chocolate covered pretzels, a yellow notebook, a gold pen, a party bath bomb, and an essential oil towelette that says sweet dreams darling on it.

I was so excited to see everything in the bag when I opened it and I think anyone else opening it would feel the same way. It always makes you feel special when someone sends you a gift, but especially when it's a gift that you really love.

My favorite things in the bag were the cucumber sheet mask, bath bomb, and the trendy gold pen.
Each bag has a different color ribbon on it. The different colors represent charities that Send Ribbon donates to. 50% of their proceeds go towards these charities. The ribbon on the bag I got was yellow for United Way NYC. This charity is in New York City and works to help low-income communities in the area to have more opportunities and to better their lives.

My other favorite pre-made gift bags that Send Ribbon has are The Pink Lady and Congrats. The Pink Lady is perfect for sending to your girl friends. Almost everything in it is rose pink colored and so girly. Any woman would love to get this bag. The Congrats bag is great for giving to a couple. It has Mr and Mrs luggage tags as well as a bath bomb and more. I think it would be a fun wedding gift to receive.

For the custom gift bags, you first choose the bag you would like. They all have different sayings on them, like bundle of joy, maid of honor, happy birthday and more. They also have different colored ribbons that represent their charities. The next step is to choose up to 8 goodies to fill the bag with. You pay for them a la carte. There are tons of options in this step! The third step is to write your personalized message that will be attached to the ribbon on the bag.

The company's owner, Kelly, is great at answering questions if you email her. She lives in Brooklyn, NY and runs her company there. She thought of the ribbon part of Send Ribbon because ribbons are used to represent causes and they're used to wrap gifts.

Thank you gift bag

This is an awesome company that provides a great service and also gives back. I definitely recommend ordering from them for any gift giving occasion. They offer free shipping on orders of $75 or more, so take advantage of that.

My Go-To Store For Fun Graphic Tees

herbivore muscle tank top

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

I have been loving graphic tees this year. I used to not have very many, but my collection has been growing a lot lately. I love how they're not basic and they show so much of your personality. I'm always on the lookout for a good graphic tee company and Lame Jane's fun graphic tees have been perfect for me this summer.

They have a good selection of products for men and women. There are a lot of different sayings, colors, and styles of shirts.

I got two shirts from them this month-

1. Herbivore Muscle Tank $22

Vegan graphic tee

I got this shirt in asphalt slate, which is a darker grey color. It also comes in black, black slub, and heather grey. When I was browsing Lame Jane's website, there were a lot of tops I liked, but the Herbivore Muscle Tank was my instant favorite!

Since I'm vegan I was all about this shirt. Herbivore is such a cute way of saying vegan. I think all vegans need this muscle tank! The text is in all lowercase letters and is pretty small. I like this because the text is more subtle, but still there. I love wearing this tank to the gym or while gardening.
Adam and I have always wanted to garden and this summer we started to with his parents. We've been growing a lot of plants with them and it's so much fun to see the progress in the garden. My muscle tank is great for gardening since it's so hot outside and this tank breathes really well.

This top comes in sizes S-2XL. I got size small and it fit great. I would say that it's true to size.

2. Lame Jane Short Sleeve Tee $20

purple graphic tee from lame jane

My favorite thing about this t-shirt is that it's so soft! I love comfy tees like this. This top says "Lame Jane" in all caps in white lettering. I got the purple tri-blend color and it's so pretty. Purple is one of my favorite colors and I don't own enough of it.

Lame Jane has this shirt in a lot of other colors too- black heather, charcoal black tri-blend, emerald tri-blend, solid black tri-blend, solid dark grey tri-blend, solid navy tri-blend, and true royal tri-blend. This shirt also comes in sizes S-2XL. I also got small in this one and it fit great.

This company also sells pullover sweatshirts, mugs, and bags. Their Homebody Tote Bag and Caffeine Queen Unisex Pullover are both super cute. I love how unique they both are.

Lame Jane offers free shipping on orders of $75 or more. Who doesn't love free shipping?!

Tortilla Republic Vegan Options: What To Get

We recently went to Southern California for a vacation with my in-laws. We spent a day in Disneyland, a day in California Adventure, then had one more day in Laguna Beach.

Related Content: Vegan Eats at Disneyland and California Adventure

When Adam and I heard that we would have a day in Laguna Beach, we knew exactly where we wanted to go for lunch! A modern Mexican restaurant named Tortilla Republic.

Two years ago we went to Kauai and stayed in Poipu. There was a shopping center nearby with a bunch of restaurants, including Tortilla Republic. That was our first time ever going to this restaurant and we couldn't believe how good it was. We ate there 3 times in 4 days!
Tortilla Republic has 3 locations- Kauai, West Hollywood, CA, and Laguna Beach, CA. Something that we love about this restaurant is that they use farm-fresh, organic products when available and they don't cook with lard or processed ingredients.

When you get to your table they bring you chips and salsa, like most Mexican restaurants. These are so much better than most restaurants though! The chips are thick and salty. The salsa is probably the best we've ever had. It's spicy without being so hot that you can't eat it. It has a great tomato flavor and so many fresh ingredients.

Veggie bowl tortilla republic

They have many gluten free and vegan menu items. I got one of the bochas (bowls). The one I chose was the Vegetariano, which is gluten free and vegan. It's served with herb rice and black beans, then also comes with fried cauliflower, roasted peppers, grilled onions, spiced pepitas, pico de gallo, corn salsa, and tomatillo fresca. I also added some of the above mentioned salsa to mine because I was so addicted to it! It would also be really good to have them add a side of avocado or guacamole to your bowl.

This bowl was super fresh, delicious, and filling. It had a ton of flavor. My absolute favorite part of it was the fried cauliflower. It was unlike any cauliflower I've ever had. It was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Next time I would love to try their Vegetariano enchiladas. To make it vegan I would have to take out the asadero and Monterey jack cheeses. That way it would come with cauliflower, chayote squash, green peas, roasted peppers, onions, and tomatillo sauce.

It would also be fun to try their guacamole sometime. What's not to love about guac? Theirs comes with avocado, serrano peppers, cilantro, white onions, tomatoes, and lime. Sounds like the perfect guacamole to me!

The location of their Laguna Beach restaurant is so cool. It's right across the street from the beach and has tons of open windows. Follow them on Instagram @tortillarepubliclagunabeach.

Fashionable Earrings To Add To Your Summer Shopping List

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

I'm not huge into accessorizing, but lately I've been adding a few pieces of jewelry to my wardrobe. I got some super cute stud earrings from a company called Good Canyon.

I used to love dangly earrings in high school and college, but now they just get tangled in my hair and I can't stop playing with them. So stud earrings are the way to go for me.

Good Canyon has a big selection of fashionable earrings on their website. Over 50 different pairs! They're so unique and fun. There were quite a few that I wanted, but I narrowed it down to two pairs. Here they are-

1. Pineapple Earrings 

Pineapple earrings

These studs come in gold, silver, and rose gold. I went with the rose gold color. I love how it stands out more than the silver, but is more subtle than gold. These earrings are $9.

Rose gold earrings

I chose to wear my pineapple earrings with this modest sage dress from Cleo Madison. I loved how the sage green and rose gold looked together. They are very complementary.

2. Anchor Earrings

Anchor stud earrings

The Anchor Earrings also come in gold, silver, and rose gold. I decided on the silver because it's such a classic color for anchor products.

Silver anchor earrings

I wore my anchor earrings with this navy nursing friendly dress from Cleo Madison. I couldn't resist wearing navy with the anchors since you see that a lot.

My other favorite earrings on their website are the Little Cactus Earrings and the Bow Earrings. I love jewelry like this that is minimalist and simple.

Good Canyon is located in Utah, which I love since we live in Utah. They have free shipping on orders of $50 or more.

Our Newest Halloween Decoration That We're Completely Obsessed With

Custom Halloween decorations

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

I've been dreaming about Halloween, fall, and October lately. Over the summer I love to plan out what local activities will be going on and I love to buy and make new decorations.

We just recently got our first Halloween decoration for the year! I love getting new things to freshen up our collection of décor. I found a personalized wood décor company called Zuri Goods.

I can't get enough of how minimalist and beautiful the designs are. I found our Witches Welcome Halloween sign while scrolling through their Instagram feed (@zurigoods). You should definitely go take a look to get some inspo for what you'd like done.

Witches decoration

I love how the "witches" part is in a fun cursive font and the "welcome" part is in a simple, thin font. The wood is high quality and beautiful. We are so excited to hang it on the wall or on a doorknob all October long.

This exact product isn't on her website. The way to get it is to order the Name Round Plaque and write what you would like the text to say. I also emailed with the owner to make sure she knew that I wanted the sign I saw on her Instagram. We got the 8" option and think it's a great size. It costs $25, which we thought was a good price for a custom piece.

Anniversary decoration

We also got another custom piece done as a gift for my in-laws. We got them the Initial Round Plaque in the 8" option. This was $25 as well.

You choose what you want the initials to be and the established year. We got my in-laws initials with the year they got married. The initials are in a fun, chunky font in capitalized letters. The est. year part is in a cute, small cursive font.

Custom wood plaque

Before shipping, the owner will send you a proof of what the plaque will look like. You can then either approve it for her to start making, or ask for changes.

It is so much fun to customize and personalize pieces for your home. The name round plaque can also be done with your child's name on it to hang in their room. I think this is such a cute, unique idea.
Zuri Goods also makes fun cake toppers. I love the Celebrate Cake Topper. It adds a very rustic feel to a birthday cake.

They also make some really pretty Christmas plaques that you can find on their Instagram. These would be a fun Christmas gift to give someone.

Cute packaging

When the wood plaques were mailed to us, I thought they were packaged up so cute. I loved the brown paper and dainty bow. This is nice because if you're giving it away as a gift, it's already wrapped up.

Something to keep in mind when ordering from Zuri Goods is that it can take about 2-3 weeks for your order to ship. I believe that orders are made to order, so that is why it can take a little bit of time. 2-3 weeks wasn't a big deal to us, but keep that in mind if you are ordering for a holiday or birthday to make sure you allow enough time.

Vegan Eats at Disneyland and California Adventure

We just went to Disneyland and California Adventure with Adam's family. The last time we were there was 3 years ago and I've only been vegan for 2 years. So this was my first time going since becoming vegan. I was pretty nervous about what I was going to eat, so I did a lot of research before going.
Disneyland entrance

I found an awesome account on Instagram @veganatdisneyland. She posts about tons of vegan options in Disneyland and in California Adventure. Her pictures are so bright and such good quality. Definitely go follow her if you aren't already! She also has a Vegan Disneyland Blog where she posts recipes and more vegan info about the parks.



Mickey Mouse Pretzel

Through her Instagram I found that the Mickey Pretzels are vegan. I was very excited about this because I've always loved Mickey Pretzels! I was surprised to learn that they don't use butter or any other animal products for the pretzels.

When it came time to eat lunch, I searched through her Instagram feed to find something that looked good. We decided to go to Rancho Del Zocalo in Frontierland. I got the Tostada Salad. To make it vegan, order it fajita style, with no cheese, and no sour cream. I got it with the tostada shell, veggies, lettuce, pico de gallo, guac, and a black bean corn relish. Refried beans were also an option, but I preferred it without them.
Fajita style means they give you fajita veggies. These include cauliflower, zucchini, bell peppers, and onions. The fajita veggies were my favorite thing about this dish! They had such good flavor.

Vegan tostada salad

Another vegan option at Rancho Del Zocalo is the Burrito Sonora. For the burrito to be vegan order it fajita style with rice and refried beans in a flour tortilla. Make sure you don't get any cheese, sour cream, or guajillo sauce. It also comes with rice, refried beans, and lettuce on the side.
You can also get street tacos that are vegan. Order them fajita style with in a flour tortilla with no cheese. This restaurant is busy and the workers move fast, so tell them quickly what you want, or they start to just put all the normal things in.

The best website I found online that helped with vegan food options was Peta 2's list of 100+ Vegan Foods to Eat at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. I loved how this list had it all organized so well. First, it showed everything for Dinseyland, then it showed the California Adventure options. It's nice how it shows all the restaurants, everything vegan they have, and what land the restaurant is in, like Tomorrowland for example.

For dinner, we chose to go to the Red Rose Taverne in Fantasyland. I got the Enchanted Cauliflower Sandwich, without the aioli, and had apple slices on the side. Pommes frites (fries) are an option for your side, but they have cheese on them.


The cauliflower sandwich has a toasted roll with a cauliflower steak, tempura green beans, tomato, and lettuce. It was so delicious! All of it was cooked perfectly and it didn't take too long to get our food. It was pretty dark in the restaurant though, so it was hard to get a good picture!

The next day we went to California Adventure. It was not easy to find good vegan options in this park. I spent forever on my phone researching what I could eat.

Cars land

For breakfast all I could find was a side of fruit in Flo's Diner. As you can imagine, I was hungry pretty soon after, so I got the first Mickey pretzel I could find.

For lunch I decided to go to Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill to get the burrito Sonora that I read about on Peta 2's website. Unfortunately, when I got over there, the Burrito Sonora wasn't even on their menu. So I ended up just getting chips, guacamole, and salsa. It was really good, but the salsa is pretty spicy.

Later in the day we went to Fillmore's Taste-In in Cars Land for some snacks. They have tons of fruit, chips, and hummus.
Luigi's Rollickin Roadsters

We didn't do dinner in the park because there just weren't enough options and it was hard to research. We had so much fun going to the Disney parks and trying all of the vegan food that we did though!

3 Pieces of Jewelry Every Woman Should Have

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

I recently came across a jewelry company called Sunshine Native Co and I can't get enough of their products. They have stamped jewelry that you can personalize. I had so much fun picking out what I wanted to get and personalizing it to me.

I got three pieces of jewelry from them. Two necklaces and a bracelet.

1. Llama Love Bar Necklace


rose gold handstamped necklace
Dress: Penelope Striped Dress
This necklace is my favorite piece of jewelry I got! Adam and I love animals and think that llamas are so cute. There are two options with how to personalize the way it's stamped. You can do just one llama, or you can get the llamas in love.

Llama bar necklace


I did the llamas in love, which is two llamas facing each other with a heart in the middle. I got the rose gold color in the 18" option. You could also get gold or silver and 14" or 16". Bar necklaces are so in style right now and I can't seem to get enough rose gold.

Get it here.

2. I Believe in Magic Necklace


Mickey hand necklace
Dress: Portland Striped Dress
This Disney necklace is so cute. It has three charms on it. One is Mickey Mouse's hand, another says "I Believe in Magic" in Disney handwriting, and the third one says Sunshine Native.

silver Disney necklace

I got silver, 18", and classic black inked. They also had gold and other chain lengths. I got it black inked so that the lettering would stand out. The other option is to not have the letters filled. They also have a bangle bracelet version of this that matches.

Get it here.

3. State Stacking Cuffs


Utah state bracelet
Dress: Spencer Pocket Dress
I love how simple this bracelet is. You can get any state stamped onto it and you can even get a heart in between two states. You can put up to 14 states on your bracelet.

Silver stamped bracelet

I chose to get a silver bangle with the shape of Utah stamped onto it and filled in with black. The other options were to get brass and to not have the stamp filled in with black.

Get it here.
