They have a variety of items for all skin types as well as a variety of scents.  One of the reasons I love the Body Shop is because their scents are long last and not overpowering, just a subtle hint of fragrance that last all day.

So far you have 30 options for budget friendly holiday shopping.  I am not done yet there is still more to come.  Tomorrow stay tuned for gifts under $20.  I hope you have found some holiday shopping inspiration as well as some ways to save a little coin during this holiday season.  You can have a phenomenal holiday without going broke in the process.  Happy Shopping and Happy Holidays!

Hilton Bonnet Creek

FullSizeRender

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando, while attending BlogHer17.  And I must say that it was a pleasure!  I had a wonderful room that not only overlooked the pool, but I could see Disney World and the nightly Disney fireworks display.  As a person who LOVES fireworks, this was definitely a bonus for me.  From the lazy rive and water slide in the pool area, to the pool bar and restaurant with excellent food, my stay at the Hilton Bonnet Creek was amazing.

From check-in to check-out the Hilton Bonnet Creek provided a great time during the weekend.  One of things that rated Hilton Bonnet Creek higher for me was the exceptional customer service.  Upon arrival, I was early, my room was not ready, I was allowed to leave my bags with the Bellmen while I went to the adjacent Waldorf Astoria Spa for a pedicure and a little bit of relaxation in their Tea Room.  While walking back to the Hilton, I managed to cut my foot and upon the realization, the staff provided me with band-aids and asked repeatedly, if I was ok or needed anything additional.  They even had security to bring be triple antibiotic ointment.

The first day there was a long travel day and I was able to go out to the poolside bar Beech, where I had an awesome salad as well as a Hibiscus Margarita, which was AMAZING!  While I would have loved to have spent some time on the hotel’s lazy river, I never got a chance to experience that Beech was not my only option,  The Myth Bar was a lifesaver open 24 hours it offered not only a great selection of cocktails, the food was pretty good as well.  Zeta, the Asian themed restaurant offered a daily happy hour with $5.00 sushi and discounted wine.  I guess there is no wonder I can home with a few extra pounds to work off.

Not only was the Hilton Bonnet Creek a great spot for the BlogHer17 Conference, It was a great spot for families as well.  Many of the conference attendees came with their families and the hotel provided plenty for the families to engage in while we attended the conference.  There was even an on-site game room as well as scheduled shuttles to all of the Disney attractions.  How convenient.  I definitely plan to return to the Orlando area and stay at the Hilton Bonnet Creek again.
