Two Holiday Gifts (to myself!)


Tis the season of giving but don't forget to give yourself a little extra love too -- you deserve it! You've worked hard this year, you've made it out on the other side and a little "treat yourself" moment is well deserved. 


Moncler: Liane Quilted Vest / Ralph Lauren: Cashmere Turtleneck (pretty sure this is the exact sweater btw) / AG: Farrah Jeans / Ted Baker: Brown Booties / Sole Society: Brown Leather Tote / David Yurman: Pearl Earrings

Giving gifts is one of my very favorite things to do -- any time of year! And there will be plenty of items I'll share over the next month talking all about what to get those you love for the holidays. But I want to also talk real quick about giving a little somethin' something' to yourself once and a while.

It should be no surprise to anyone here that I love eBay. I've been using it since college and like to think I keep the lights on with all of the business I give! I'm just a sucker for finding *the* perfect deal. I like to be able to spend my hard earned dollar wisely and what better place to do that other an eBay!

So today I wanted to show off two new items from the eBay closet to my own -- the first being some new David Yurman pearl earrings. I've had this style for years (also bought from eBay) but wanted to switch it up. I'm a person who likes to sleep in my jewelry and these earrings were just too big to sleep on a night, so I went for their other style and am l-o-v-i-n-g them so far. I feel like they are that perfect classic touch that I wanted in earrings. 

The second item was something very new to the CTB household and that is my new moncler vest. I've only heard great things about the brand but it is way expensive compared to my normal budget. So I was searching for a month or two before I stumbled on a great deal for this green quilted vest. Well, tbh I actually found a blue vest that I loved but I own like 5 blue vests and needed to change it up.

I saw that it was buy it now (which is how I love to shop on eBay -- fun fact 89% of items on there are BIN!) and I pulled the trigger. Two days later it was at my doorstep and ready to be worn (another fun fact is that 71% of the items on eBay are 2 day shipping which is ideal for the holidays). So merry Christmas to me!!

So if you're in the mood to #treatyoself or are shopping for your list, I would check out their "daily deals" page because it has some serious deals  (like my very favorite Dyson cordless vacuum). It's like black Friday but without the madness.
