    Gift Guide: Gift Ideas for Feminists

    Gift Ideas for Feminists - Gift Guide Cup of Charisma

    One//Two//Three//Four//Five//Six//Seven//Eight//Nine

    Today’s gift guide is for the girls! (Don’t judge me, but I DEFINITELY read that in the tune of Martina McBride’s “This One’s For the Girl’s”.) Whether you know me personally or follow me on social media, you know I proudly and emphatically support women’s rights and call myself a feminist. I’ve shared my favorite feminist books and reflected on my own ideology. I’ve used this space as a way to talk about women’s rights and strive to inspire those around me to get civically engaged. It should come as no surprise that I had a blast putting together these gift ideas for feminists.

    Gift Guide: Gift Ideas for Animal Lovers

    GIFT IDEAS FOR ANIMAL LOVERS

    One // Two // Three // Four // Five // Six // Seven // Eight // Nine // Ten // Eleven

    Have a friend you’re constantly tagging in corgi memes (ME)? Love someone who would rather spend time with their cat? If you’re looking for gift ideas for animal lovers in your life, you’ve come to the right place! As I mentioned in my Gifts for Travelers guide, I wanted to create a list of gift guides that are quirky and unique enough for every friend in your circle. This was probably my favorite guide to put together because I’m a proud dog mom and aspiring cat mom (which is unlikely because I’m SO allergic to them). I hope these awesome pet-loving products will put a smile on the face of someone you love.

    For all who are working to give their pets a better life, this one is for you…

    Sensitive Skin? Me Experience with Olay Whips Fragrance-Free

    I’m a card-carrying member of the sensitive skin club. Raise your hand if you’re prone to breakouts and reactions when you use abrasive products. As a beauty blogger, I used to be plagued with acne and eczema when I would try new products that didn’t jive with my sensitive skin. In recent years, I’ve learned my lesson and have switched to a fragrance-free regimen with encouragement from my dermatologist. Olay has been a brand in my medicine cabinet for YEARS, so I was thrilled when the brand launched Olay Whips Fragrance-Free.

    If you couldn’t tell, I’m on a bit of winter coat kick these days! Living in Houston, I only have so much room for a winter coat to keep me warm this season.

Since I’ve been on the hunt, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite winter coat finds under $200 for you to enjoy.

    How to Style a Teddy Coat

    How to Style Brown Teddy Coat and Black Jeans - Fall Fashion on Cup of Charisma

    When the cold fronts say hey, the coats come out to play. That may not be a real saying, but I’ve been holding out for cold weather in Houston. We finally had our first cold front of the season in mid-October, so I wasted no time in getting one of the largest staples of the fall/winter: the teddy coat. I decided to style a teddy coat rather than a traditional peacoat because I believe in a future where our clothing is as soft as our stuffed animals. You can quote me on that.
