Men's Holiday Gift Guide - Cremo & More

I love getting a good Men's Holiday Gift Guide up, because men can be so hard for us women to shop for sometimes! 

I love reading other people's guides, and I also love putting together my own to help get me in the shopping spirit. I gotta get myself in the mindset to think of what guys need and things they didn't realize they needed 'till now! 

One of my favorite gift sets this year for the man in your life is one of the CREMO beard, body, hair or shave gift sets. You can buy them online HERE or from Wal-mart, Target, CVS, RiteAid, Meijer, or Kroger. CREMO makes high quality products for shaving - creams, brushes, colognes and more. The men in my life are all getting these gift sets this year - they love these CREMO products! I love the packaging too - so cool for any guy to receive. 

I also put together some MORE fun low to high end gift ideas HERE and below for you: 

What are you getting the men in your life this Christmas?

I hope these gift ideas from CREMO and the shopping links above help you out some! 



Instagram Latest 10 Posts!

The weekend is coming to an end, there are 15 days till Christmas, I leave for a girls' trip to Utah in a few days, and I had a big yard sale this weekend! I only made about $150, because I live in a slow area with not a lot of traffic, BUT - I let go of TONS of stuff that didn't sell, that I didn't need and I have a HUGE donation to the Vietnam Veteran's happening this week! Feels good to let go of all that old stuff that I don't need, that has old memories, that doesn't bring me joy, etc. Don't you love that feeling?

Beauty Holiday Gift Guide

Happy December beauties! 

I am seeing so many amazing beauty deals, and if I don't control myself I am going to buy them all for myself, so I probably will buy some, but I wanted to put together a gift guide for you all to highlight some of the ones I think are pretty awesome. I listed them from lowest price to highest price for you - my top 5 picks from Nordstrom and my top 5 picks from Sephora! Those are my favorite 2 stores to shop at for makeup, skincare and hair and they both have some great beauty deals right now.

My top 5 picks from Nordstrom:

Jo Malone London Christmas Ornament Duo - $35 So cute and a great price for an upscale perfume!
Sugar Wanderlust Lip Gift Set - $53 This lip stuff is awesome and I love the pink box it comes in.
Tula Balanced Skincare Gift Set - $78 I hear about this brand all the time, so a gift/ travel set is the perfect way to try it out!
Tom Ford Iris Bronze Eye & Lip Set - $87 Awesome price for some upscale makeup. I am obsessed with their lipstick.
NeuLash Lash Enhancing Serum Duo - $150 I keep wanting to buy this and one day I will finally cave! Have any of you tried it?
My top 5 picks from Sephora: 

Living Proof All I Want Is Dry Shampoo Set - $23 Cute set, and you can never have too much dry shampoo. This one is awesome.
Morrocanoil Ultimate Favorites - $48 My Mom and I have been using a lot more products from this brand lately, so I love this gift set!
Tatcha Bestsellers Set - $60 Kind of like Tula above, great set to try out a new brand.
Sephora Favorites Cologne Sampler - $65 This is always such a great gift, because the recipient gets to try different perfumes, and they get a gift card to redeem for their favorite full size!
Charlotte Tilbury Golden Goddess Gift Set - $230 (No words needed - I want this SO bad!! LOL)

I wish I could just get these all for myself! 

Let me know if you find any other ones or if you snag one of these for yourself or someone on your list!

October Empties

It is that time again ya'll. EMPTIES! I have 16 of them for October. Check them out below.

I also have been working on adding all my favorite things, including lots of these empties, to an Amazon page, for easier viewing HERE: GretchCannon's Favorite Things. I hope you enjoy it, and I will keep working on adding to it.

  1. Acure - Radically Rejuvenating Under Eye Hydrogels - Super soothing with cucumber for tired under eyes. Love using these in the morning on the weekends. 
  2. Kirkland - Daily Facial Towelettes - My Mom introduced me to these and they are the best makeup remover wipes! So soft and they work really quickly. I keep one in the bathroom and some next to my bed in the nightstand, for easy makeup removal. 
  3. CoverFX - Illuminating Primer - This is a good primer for glowy skin, and sets up your foundation to glide on really smoothly. 
  4. Hydro - Razor - Love this razor, no irritation, and glides on skin easily.  
  5. Lumify - Eye Drops - These eyedrops work quickly for allergies or irritation, without the burn. 
  6. Batiste - Dry Shampoo (Original Scent) - My favorite dry shampoo, and I have tried so many! It doesn't have an overwhelming scent and it helps me get through till my next wash. 
  7. Fairywill - Toothbrush Refill - I love this rechargeable toothbrush and refills. Super easy to use and very effective. 
  8. Neutrogena - Rainbath Shower Gel - My favorite body wash. I keep 1 in the shower and 1 in the bath tub! 
  9. Secret - Clinical Strength Deodorant (Lavender Scent) - I am still trying to go more natural with my deodorant, but when I need a good anti-perspirant, I love this one and love lavender scents. 
  10. NYX - Dewy Finish Setting Spray - I love both of NYX's setting sprays - dewy & matte. I keep repurchasing these over more expensive ones and highly recommend them! 
  11. Dr. Teal's - Pink Himalayan Mineral Soak - My favorite epsom salt to add to my bath for relaxation! 
  12. Dale Audrey - Ayurvedic Oral Pulling Rinse (Fresh Mint) - My favorite oil pulling mouth rinse in mint flavor. I also love the cinnamon.  
  13. Enjoy - Conditioning Spray - I love this conditioning spray to use before brushing my hair after the shower. It leaves my hair soft and protects it from heat styling.
  14. Loreal - Root Cover Up (Dark Brown) - Perfect for covering up gray regrowth between color appointments. Washes out easily.  
  15. Loofah - I love this shower loofah to exfoliate my skin before shaving and tanning! I like to replace this often. 
  16. Listerine Sensitivity (Fresh Mint) - I have sensitive teeth, so using this after I brush helps to be able to drink and eat cold things again!
What did you use up in October & what will you repurchase?
Thanks for stopping by!

I saw A Star Is Born this weekend with my girlfriend Nikki and did some purging/ donating to the Veteran's of America with my wonderful Mom. Have you seen the movie? Lady GaGa & Bradley Cooper were both on fire - so hot and so talented. I am not dressing up for Halloween, but I cannot wait to stalk everyone's social media to see pictures of everyone and their kids' costumes!! It is so fun!

Instagram Lately: Shop the Looks

Happy Weekend! 

I am feeling a bit under the weather.. normal people sick, like I picked up a cold from somewhere. I am so careful with hand sanitizer all the time, but I guess it just happens! Especially since I have been trying to get out when I have energy, and I don't have a normal immune system. I also had my plasmapheresis treatment last week, so I am trying to catch up a little this weekend. I hope enjoy this little (long) IG Lately blog post! Here are the looks I have posted to my Instagram lately, with easy "shop the look" links. I hope you enjoy and are having a good weekend.

SoCal Fall Fashion: I decided to add a little bit of fall to my denim shorts yesterday. Exact sweater can be found HERE for only $20!

Pumpkin Patch Fun: My exact sweater can be found HERE, and this one is also only $20! The shoes I linked are exact and I am obsessed with them!

Distressed Denim & Faux Gucci Slides: Actual slides are an Amazon find HERE. Cannot beat the price! I keep wanting to buy them in black as well. They are comfy and a great quality. They ship from overseas, so give yourself a few weeks for shipping if you end up getting them.

Leopard Casual: Actual necklace is yet ANOTHER "look for less" I found on Amazon. It is a great Celine necklace dupe you can buy HERE.

Car Vibes: Actual sunglasses are a Celine dupe I found HERE for $11! Sweatshirt is currently in stock and is so comfy.

Friend Date: Saw Crazy Rich Asians and loved it! Found my exact shirt, jeans AND booties for you guys! 

LOVE Sweatshirt: Sold out of SOME sizes right now, but hopefully they will be restocking soon! Currently on sale for $15 - can't beat that.

Denim on Denim: Wore this to a lunch date with a friend and her new man! Couldn't find exact boots, but found some similar looks for you! Last Amazon look for less, this cute necklace can be found HERE.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Let me know what you have been up to! If you need me, I will be laying in bed watching EXTREMELY cheesy Fall Hallmark movies (which I love).



September Empties

It is that time again! September Empties! I used up a lot of beauty items last month - almost 20 items! I wanted to share the detz with you all! Check them out below.


  1. LANCOME Hypnose Drama Mascara - In color Black Noir, this was a sample I received with another Lancome purchase. I really liked it. 
  2. LOREAL Lash Primer - I am obsessed with using this before my mascara. It really helps thicken the look of your lashes. I have tried more expensive primers and this one for $8 is the best one I have found! 
  3. ENJOY Sulfate-Free Hydrating Shampoo - My favorite shampoo, recommended by my hair stylist. Also perfect for when I have tape-in hair extensions on! 
  4. Angel Perfume - by Thierry Mugler, I had this perfume for a long time and finally used it up.  This was like a ride or die in college for me, but the smell is a little strong for me now: chocolate, citrus, melon, peach, plum, vanilla, sandalwood and musk. I wouldn't get this again now, but I still do really love the scent and it has a lot of memories for me. 
  5. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer - I would definitely repurchase this, it really helps your eyeshadow stay put all day. 
  6. Almay Liquid Eyeliner - I love to have this $5 eyeliner as a backup to my more expensive ones. It is easy to use and has a nice color output - it is not too watery like some of the other cheaper options are. 
  7. NYX Matte Setting Spray - I like the Dewy version best, but I like to have this Matte version on hand too for a more glam look. I don't think you need an expensive setting spray - these NYX ones have a great price point and are amazing. 
  8. NYX Concealer Wand - This is a good dupe for more expensive concealers at a fraction of the price. I would definitely repurchase this. 
  9. Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder - This is a holy grail product for me and so many other beauty lovers. It is totally worth the money and lasts forever. It is the perfect setting powder for your makeup, it feels light and soft. 
  10. NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker - Another dupe for more expensive liquid eyeliners that I like. I am a black eyeliner every day girl or my eyes look asleep, so I love trying and having different ones on hand. 
  11. Maybelline Micro Brow Pencil - This is a good cheaper dupe for the Anastasia Brow Pencil. I definitely need to repurchase this ASAP! You can get it at Ulta or a drugstore like CVS.
  12. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner - My favorite black eyeliner, I feel like I have this in my empties every month! Shows how much I love it. 
  13. Clarisonic Brush Head - Loved this brush head for my Clarisonic. I try to replace them when they start to feel dirty even after washing. 
  14. Makeup Forever Base Step 1 - This is a good matte primer that I would repurchase. 
  15. First Aid Beauty Coconut Primer - Love this primer too for more of a dewy finish. 
  16. Bumble & Bumble Invisible Oil Hair Conditioner - This was a good sample product to try. I liked it for frizzy hair days like in the summer.
  17. Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant Revive Scent - I am trying to go more natural with my deodorant, but this is always good in a pinch and leaves no residue! 
  18. Kiehl's LIP BALM #1 - I love this classic lip balm, it is usually less than $10 and it is super moisturizing for fall! 
  19. Enjoy Hair Mask - I LOVE this and recently got the full size of it, which will probably last a long time! I love trying masks like this before purchasing full size.  

Hope you enjoyed my empties haul! 
What did you use up last month?



Shop PinkBlush Fall Clothing

TGIF Ya'll! I recently got 2 fall pieces from online boutique Shop PinkBlush that I wanted to share with you! 

You may have seen them featured on my Instagram in the past week. You can check out their site HERE. They are a really cool clothing company that targets women before, during and after pregnancy - or people who just love their clothes, like me! With the modern mother in mind, they provide looks that are stylish, trendy and affordable. They wanted to create clothing that women could wear time and time again. I think they succeeded. 

I love this Green Striped Long Sleeved Pocket Dress, seen below! You can shop it HERE, under the category of All Women's Dresses! This is made for women of all ages, and is perfect for before, during and after maternity because it is so comfy! It also comes in grey and burgundy. I styled it with a felt hat, matching over the knee boots, and a statement necklace - for a fun fall look. I am obsessed with the back detail, and who doesn't love pockets?

I also fell in LOVE with this Brown Leopard Elbow Knit Top - and now you can also get it with sequin elbows! Shop for it HERE! You can also get the version with no sequins in Mocha or Grey. I think this is perfect for transitioning into fall, I wore it out to dinner and got several compliments on it! People love the elbow detail and leopard print is IN right now! I love the rounded neckline and the lightweight feeling of the knit. I paired it with silver jewelry, black distressed denim jeans, and black suede over the knee boots. I felt pretty sassy! This also can be worn by anyone, including before, during, and after pregnancy, because it is a little bit oversized and so versatile.

Have a great weekend and happy shopping! 
Let me know if you pick anything up from Shop PinkBlush
