HIM gift guide by Michael | by the skinny confidential

Hey Guys,

Michael here! I have been receiving some messages via email and snap asking about gifts for this holiday season. I thought I would put together a quick list to help give you all some gift ideas for the men in your life. I use all of these items on a regular, if not daily, basis. I tried to recommend things that get daily or weekly use, or things that would help the men in your life be more productive. Happy Holidays!

1 FIND THE H&M Easy Iron Shirt { HERE }:

I go through white shirts like I go through paper towels. I buy 10 of these at a time and they last me 6 months. I swear Lauryn and Mimi are hiding them or giving them away. Great shirts.

2 FIND the Moleskine Classic Notebook { HERE }:

I carry one of these in my briefcase every time I travel or go into the office. I like to keep my crazy ideas and thoughts in here. It’s also therapeutic to write notes in it when I read or need to get something off my chest.

3 FIND the sleep Master Sleep Mask { HERE }:

A PRETTY CHEESE PLATE:

A cheese plate is always a great gift for the friend that likes to cook. They can place it out while they’re cooking dinner for their friends or use it for appetizers. Plus, this one is SO instagrammable. LOVE it.

LITTLE PASTEL BOWLS:

I have these bowls & I am obsessed! They’re SO cute for using as prep bowls, snack bowls, or even bowls for sauces for your guests. The friend that likes to cook will get SO much use out of them.

HUGE ASS GIFT GUIDE FOR EVERY PERSON IN YOUR LIFE | by the skinny confidential

Usually I am a MAJOR procrastinator.

It’s a problem…

NOT THIS YEAR THOUGH. I’m shopping EARLY. Getting it done, turning a new leaf, making changes. Pretty excited about the stress I’m hopefully saving myself. Right?

This year, I’m shopping for every single person in my life BEFORE the rush shipping prices kick into gear. Great news for saving money too!

That being said, I figured I’d share A HUGE ASS GIFT GUIDE for every kind of person in your life. So buckle up, it’s about to get SERIOUS.

Since this holiday gift guide is going to be HUGE, we’re truly covering it all, I decided to break it up into two parts. PART 1, we’re covering the friend that likes to drink, the BOMBSHELL BODY BABE, the workaholicthe kids, & the bougie babe. Fun right? Be sure to follow these boards on Pinterest for even MORE gift ideas!

Part TWO will feature the friend that likes to cook, pets, the beauty guru, & the jet setter. Stay tune for a gift guide by Michael as well!

OKAY so let’s get right into it, shall we?

TSC Itinerary: Full On Guide To Venice, Italy

Venice itinerary | by the skinny confidential

Susan is BACK ( aka Michael ) on The Skinny Confidential discussing his favorite subject: TRAVEL ITINERARIES.

You know we promised more travel with the new site launch so ta-da: VENICE, Italy. Florence will make an appearance this month too.

We want to make sure that if we’ve traveled somewhere, you guys get the 411 on what to do, where to go, & of course, the eating/drinking details.

So I’ll let Mr. Professional Itinerary Connoisseur take it from here because to be honest, I’m very much absorbed in Game Of Thrones right now:

As some of you know Lauryn & I recently went to Venice, Italy for her surprise birthday trip. If you follow along on Snapchat you have seen that I really took some time to plan out what I thought would be a really special trip to celebrate Lauryn’s birthday.

Before you ask or wonder, yes Lauryn really was VERY surprised & I was even more surprised that she didn’t figure it out! You would think after hearing 7 announcements, passing by 4 screens with the destination, getting on a connecting flight and watching video clips on the location that she would know exactly where we were going. …

Favorite Strength Training Workouts x MISSGUIDED GIVEAWAY

So I’m definitely a chick who loves strength training.

But I’m not like, all gnarly about it…where I’m shoving protein powder down my throat, surrounded by an unnecessary amount of weights & wearing weight lifting gloves ( you know those guys that make those super loud ‘grunts’ while they’re lifting? I can’t ).

I really feel as though a lot of girls get off to a rocky start with poor strength training, so hopefully with this post, I can shift any negative views on it? Let’s hope?

Most of my favorite strength training moves can be found in The Skinny Confidential Book. They’re all moves you can do at-home while watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ( OMG, I love Lisa V.! )…which is fab because these are no-gym-needed workouts.

Oh, & just to note: strength training is amazing for building muscles in a feminine way too. You simply lift less & use your own body resistance as opposed to 2394372974 pound weights.

Lately my favorite sexy moves have been arm focused ( totally having an arm moment ). Here are some of my go-to moves:

♡ Squat to Overhead Press

Works quadriceps, hamstrings, butt, abs, shoulders.
