Holiday Gift Guide – for the #GirlBoss.

Well, it’s official – there are 12 days until Christmas. How and when did this happen?

So far we have covered the Holiday Gift Guide – For Him Edit, The best hostess gifts to give to make sure you’re always invited back, and the stocking stuffers for everyone on your list. That brings us to the next list – The Girl Boss gift guide. The hustle never stops for ladies who launch…ha! If you have a lady in your life who is rocking it as a girl boss, these gifts will make her life THAT much more successful!

Every #BossBabe knows in order to have a great day, it starts with your first cup of warm, caffeinated goodness. I love travel mugs!! They are perfect for those get up and go days and I actually do use them in the drive threw occasionally (admittedly, when I remember) so I can cut down on the waste I’m contributing to the planet. A very good friend of mine bought me this one for my birthday and I promise you, whoever you’re buying this for will love it as much as I do! Also, if she is a coffee girl, this one! Because, coffee is life!

A girl on the go always needs a charged phone! This portable charging key chain plugs easily into any iPhone and is under $45. I am so obsessed with this idea, it’s amazing! If you want to send me one, let me know and I’ll give you my address!!! But… actually!

I have never seen a cuter fitness tracker and watch duo! This little gem tracks all things fitness AND shows your notifications from your phone. Done. Sold. Thank goodness for Michael Kors!

Making deals? Need a power blazer. Snappy casual is my go-to look and this blazer will pull together any office outfit or even a jeans and tee look. She will have this in her closet for FOREVER, trust me.

De-clutter her life even further with this chic desk accessories from Kate Spade. This adorable and incredibly useful desk calendar would go perfectly with this calculator, stapler, pencil holder, and obviously this pen. She probably spends hours every day sitting at that desk so making it engaging and beautiful would make such a difference!

Chances are, your boss babe already has a work tote she loves, gift this classy houndstooth laptop case to complete her look!

I talked about these in my stocking stuffer post but, earrings. Need I say more? Currently I am obsessed with White Fox Collective and their designs. Every time I wear a pair of theirs, I get so many compliments! Do yourself a favor and order a few for each of the girls on your stocking stuffer or even gift list this year… and a pair for yourself while you’re at it!

I love this list because it is both utilitarian and fun! These items will make work more functional and cuter for the girl boss in your life! Am I missing anything? Let me know!

4 things successful people don’t waste their time on.

One of my new obsessions lately is focusing more on how successful people became so successful – and how I can learn from them. I’ve been reading a lot about how some of my idols like Oprah and Tim Ferriss got successful, and one thing I’m most curious about is how these people get everything done! I’m sure I can’t be the only one who feels like each day flies by, and yet you’re still stuck with an enormous to-do list. Unfortunately, the things that don’t need to get done ASAP – like that new idea you’ve had in the back of your mind for awhile – always seem to get pushed to the bottom of our priority lists. Right?! UGH.

I really want to focus on spending my time more meaningfully, which also means that I need to stop wasting time on certain things that aren’t helping me grow or contributing to my success. So as I’m doing research on some of my favorite peeps, I’m noting what they absolutely don’t waste their time on and honestly, I’m inspired.
