The post this week includes a Holiday Gift Guide for under $25. I am trying to give as many inexpensive gifts as I can because I know what it is like to have to Christmas shop on a budget. It can be stressful, and disheartening when you can’t find any good Christmas gift ideas for under $25. I hope this helps you out.

I decided to cut back on my caffeine intake this week. I actually stopped drinking coffee on Monday and switched to tea. It’s been throwing my body a bit due to the withdrawal and I had a moment the other night while I was reading in bed where I thought I was going to faint.

I put my head in between knees for a minute or two and it passed, but it was slightly concerning. I haven’t had any issues since but I making myself more aware of anything weird or off.

I bought myself a Christmas gift this week. I don’t know if you remember me talking about how I wanted this wrap top from ABLE, but it’s been on my radar for at least half a year if not more (I seem to have no concept of time these days).

Anyway, it’s on sale and if you sign up for the email they give you 20% off your first purchase so I saved a lot. Also, the shipping to Canada is only $15 which is waaaaay cheaper than most U.S. retailers which was a nice change.

What pushed me into the purchase was seeing it here on Instagram on a woman who I follow. It looks really nice on her, and I am so looking forward to it arriving. I actually had a black wrap top kind of like this in the late 90s early 2000s that I wore until it practically disintegrated.

I was actually able to wear it through my first pregnancy before it was time for it to retire so I am happy to find a replacement after all these years.

Have you bought yourself any gifts this year?
