Gift Guide For Him: Ricardo + More

It's no secret that Marco and I love to travel, that's why the perfect gift for him this Christmas was his very own set of suitcases that were both functional and sleek. Thanks to Ricardo Beverly Hills, the Spectrum Collection is the best of both worlds. With so many trips coming up, Marco is so excited to travel around the world with his new suitcases.

His favorite features? He loves how lightweight they are and how much he can pack into them. The sizes fit into each other with ease and move so swiftly. It's made of a polycarbonate shell making them extremely durable, perfect for handling the toughness of travel sometimes. Check out the full Spectrum Collection here.


For some other holiday gift ideas for your guy, check out these ideas down below, ranging from headphones, to clothing, sunglasses, other cool electronics, etc. Hopefully this will help check off some names on your list. Happy shopping!

Saint Laurent from Reebonz



It's been a while since I fell in love with a Saint Laurent bag, and I'm so happy that this beauty is in my collection now. There's a certain luxury to the Saint Laurent design and I always found difficulty finding a bag to wear for evening events or dates. Thanks to Reebonz, I won't be having that problem anymore! If you've watched my unboxing, then you already know some basics about this bag, initial reaction, and of course sharing the magic of a true unboxing. If you haven't yet, you can check out the video here.

I've added quite a few bags to my collection from Reebonz this past year, each bag with its own special charm and in this post, I'm going to talk to you about my new Saint Laurent Sunset Bag. Be sure to check out the end of this post for some of my favorites from the site as well as a special code to take 20% off your eligible purchase!
THE BASICS
It's the Medium Sunset Bag in Dark Beige Leather. It's a monogram Saint Laurent flap front bag with accordion sides, leather and chain strap that can be worn crossbody or doubled up for a shoulder strap, a key ring encased in leather and a metal interlocking YSL signature. The dimensions are 8.6 X 3.1 X 6.2 Inches and it is made of 100% Calf-skin leather with suede lining. It has a magnetic snap closure and a gusseted slot pocket under the flap and back slot pocket as well.


WHAT FITS
Cellphone (iPhone 8 Plus), AirPods, Keys, Cardholder, Sunglasses. It's a bit snug because of how the bag is compartmentalized but then again, I picked this up with every intention of it being a special occasion bag where I didn't have to carry around too much anyways!
I'm really excited to wear this out more, especially with so many holiday parties and events coming up. Check out some other bags I've been loving from Reebonz.com and take 20% off your eligible purchases with my code "R20AL" valid until the end of this year + $50 off your first order on top of that by clicking that link! It's that time of the year, go treat yourself!

Holiday Dressing with Macy's


Paid for by Refinery29 and Macy’s

This time of the year is the perfect time to have fun with your outfits, something more festive, trying out a print you normally wouldn't. I fell in love with this floral wrap dress from Macy's by RACHEL Rachel Roy and knew that it was the perfect piece to wear to one of the upcoming holiday parties on my calendar. With a bit of a lustrous pattern, it becomes the focal point of this look. And of course, leather pieces are something you can't ever go wrong with. These studded booties and leather moto were the perfect balance for this beautiful dress. Be sure to check out Macy's amazing selection of clothing when you're shopping for all your festive events this season!

Cyber Monday 2017

Marco and I have been binge-watching Star Wars movies and surrounded ourselves with family and board games the past few days, so I definitely fell behind on the Black Friday posts but hoping to make up for it with Cyber Monday, which is actually my preferred shopping day since I'm a serial online shopper.

This post is a combination of things that are on my own wishlist as well as some other great deals that I found that I think you guys would be interested in checking out! From apparel, to accessories, to early Christmas gift shopping for your loved ones, I hope you can cross some off your Christmas list or treat yourself to something nice for the hard work you've put in this year. Let's get started!

THE BIG "TREAT YOSELF" SPLURGES
These items are higher up on the budget list but the sales are too good to pass up. I couldn't believe the discount and treated myself to something I've been eyeing for a very long time. But the first rule of sale shopping, especially when it comes to higher ticket items: IF YOU WOULDN'T PAY FULL PRICE FOR IT, THINK BEFORE BUYING IT AT A DISCOUNTED PRICE. Just because something is on sale, doesn't mean you have to buy it, so just keep that in mind when going through this list as well!


The above are personal favorites of mine that are too good to pass up! I always think Cyber Monday is a great time to add a classic piece to the closet while saving yourself some money as well. I am trying to behave myself but I must admit I couldn't help myself when the deals are just that good.

1. THE ARRIVALS - MOYA III (Save $300)
Up to $300 off sitewide. I picked up this jacket because it's something I've been eyeing for a while now and the sale is too good to pass up!

2. RAY-BAN ICONS SUNGLASSES (Save $22)
These are currently 20% off and definitely a great pair of everyday sunglasses. Bloomingdales has a great selection of pieces that are now on sale, but I'll be linking sites and their sales down below!

3. BURBERRY COAT (Save 40%)
This classic piece is perfect for anyone looking for a classic black coat to add to their collection. I'd purchase it myself but had to restrain myself since I picked up the Arrivals oversized moto jacket. Only a size 0 is left so if that fits, you're a lucky one.

4. GIVENCHY MINI ANTIGONA (Save $500)
This is one of my favorite bags that I've gotten this year and with their already discounted prices, take an additional 20% off with my code R20AL and $50 off your first order!

This little cutie has been the perfect addition to my collection. It's a beautiful bag that can elevate the simplest outfit. The amount you save is too good to pass up, take an additional 20% off with my code R20AL and $50 off your first order!

6. STUART WEITZMAN BOOTS (Save 52%)
Been loving the slouchy boot trent and these boots are more than half off their original price!

7. MACBOOK AIR ($877)
I love taking my Macbook Air when I'm traveling and this is the perfect chance to get yourself one if you're constantly on the go like me!

8. CANON CAMERAS (VARIOUS DISCOUNTS)
I've been a fan of Canon Cameras for years and they have a great amount of equipment on sale right now!

9. STUART WEITZMAN OTK BOOTS ($558 from $798)
These boots are stunning and I always love the sales on SW at this time of the year!

10. LARSSON & JENNINGS WATCH (40% off while Stocks Last)
I've been wearing my L&J Norse practically everyday and they're offering 40% off while stocks last! This new combination is stunning.

11. SONOS SPEAKER (Save $50)
My Sonos is how I play music when I'm at home, how I listen to my guided meditation, it's perfect for anyone looking for an amazing sound. This will also be a great gift for that audio-lover in your life.

12. SAINT LAURENT BAG (Save $460)
The latest bag in my collection is the Saint Laurent Sunset bag in dark beige. It's absolutely beautiful in person and this elegant style is sure to be a classic.

13. GLOSSIER (20% off Sitewide)
I love Glossier products so if you do too, now is the time to stock up because everything is 20% off.

14. GIVENCHY SNEAKERS (Save $90)
I'm a sucker for a pair of crisp white sneakers so be sure to check these out if you have a weakness for them too.

15. YSL CARD HOLDER (Save $50)
I don't like to carry too big of a wallet so this is perfect for someone that doesn't like to carry too much but still needs a few card slots to get by.

16. GIVENCHY SWEATSHIRT
I don't know what it is about this sweatshirt that I love, but I do. I can't justify splurging on this right now, but if you can, go for it.

OUTERWEAR
When it comes to shopping for outerwear, be sure to look for something that can be a staple in your closet. Think about how much use you'll get out of it. If it's a higher price point, it's probably well worth the quality! I tried to give you guys a range of pieces that I think are amazing deals + well worth the investment!

SHOES
I am a total creature of comfort and when it comes to shoes that are a bit more expensive, they have to be comfortable first. As you can tell, I'm a fan of boots and sneakers. These are amazing deals!

BAGS
I love how many amazing bags are on sale right now! This is especially perfect for anyone looking to start or build on their collection with classic pieces. I'm amazed how great these deals are and don't forget to take the 20% off at Reebonz.com with my code that I've listed above! (R20AL)


And don't worry guys, I'll have gift guides coming up soon. But in the meantime, be sure to check out these amazing deals and treat yourself to something nice! Let me know in the comments below if you liked how this guide was set up. Have a great week, everyone!
