It’s Julie’s Favorite things… Oprah Style! And you get one, and you get one!!!

Oprah’s Favorite Things… One of my favorite shows of the year!  Even though I was never in the audience, I remember receiving so much joy by watching her favorite things show and seeing her give away so many amazing items. Like Oprah, my love language is gifting as well, so this show just brought me all sorts of happiness!

So I usually do some sort of giveaway at Christmas but I thought it would be fun to do my own list of favorite things and starting on 13th (the first day of Christmas) I will be choosing 12 things off my list below to give to you!  One person will win each day and then ONE person will get ALL 12 GIFTS!!!  AHHHHH!!!  Who’s excited??!!!

But first, I decided to put together a little gift guide complete with links to make your shopping a little bit easier this year. These are things I use in business and of course a lot of personal favorites as well!  So let’s go!

FAVORITE  BUSINESS TOOL – HONEYBOOK

We could not run our business without Honeybook!  It’s how we send contracts, invoices and keep our team and our clients on track!  And if you click HERE and sign up, you will get 50% off!

FAVORITE STYLING HACK

These little blocks are what I use when styling invites!  It’s the best way to raise them and give a layering effect!  I couldn’t style without them!

FAVORITE GOAL SETTING TOOLS 

I’m big on goal setting and these keep me on track! Start your year off right by adding this to your monthly and daily goals.  I’m buying these for all my girls in my Mastermind this year and I’m so excited to include them in my business this year!

MY FAVORITE DRESS FOR SHOOTING WEDDINGS

I stumbled across this dress when I was searching for linen clothes for France and I fell in love with it! AND IT’S FROM AMAZON!!! I quickly ordered a few more! It’s cool and comfortable and it has POCKETS! I also ordered a few more in different colors, the perfect dress to dress up and down or even add a sweater and tights!

ANOTHER FAVORITE SHOOTING HACK – CLOSE UP FILTERS

I’m about less gear since shooting film, but sometimes I need to get that ring shot or my go-to half face shot!  How do I do it? By using these!  You will always see these in my bag!

FAVORITE PLANNER

I hope it’s not weird to list my planner with my favorite things, but it really is my favorite planner and I put it on SALE for you!

FAVORITE CAMERA BACKPACK and CARRY-ON SUITCASE

This is my favorite backpack for when I travel because I can fit so much in it! It also can slide on the handle of my favorite carry-on, the Away suitcase in pink of course!

FAVORITE NOTEBOOKS

I love notebooks and I aways have one with me! Rifle Co. never disappoints on their cute covers!

FAVORITE CELL PHONE CASE

Ok, one thing I can’t live without is my Bandolier camera strap. It’s perfect when you don’t want to carry a purse and it makes wedding days easy without having to worry about your phone!

FAVORITE ALL-NATURAL BODY PRODUCTS 

I’ve mentioned this company before but you will not find a better all-natural deodorant ANYWHERE! And here’s a code to use with the above link for 10% off. Just enter juliepaisley10

FAVORITE ICE CREAM 

Guys, they SHIP!  Yes, you can ship ice cream! Best gift EVER and the most yummiest flavors!

FAVORITE MASCARA

I just had to include this one. My lashes are so long and it stays in place even on the hottest days!

FAVORITE NEW DECOR BOOK

Y’all know my BFF Joanna Gaines?  Well, she has a new design book and you need it. Just sayin’

FAVORITE COZY SOCKS

Well, my other BFF Oprah had these on her favorite things list and I bought them and I’m sold.

BEST SWEATER EVER

Oh this sweater, it’s like being wrapped in a cozy blanket. Everyone needs one of these in their life.

FAVORITE CANDY STORE

Y’all know I love me some sugar and not only is Sugarfina candy cute for giving, it’s tastes yummy as well!

FAVORITE BATH BOMBS

 

LUSH – Need I say more? And they have gift sets already wrapped, double win!

FAVORITE SHOES

These are my go-to shoes when I know I’m going to be on my feet all day. They are the best!

FAVORITE CANDLE

It’s been my favorite candle for years and nothing has changed.

FAVORITE ACCESSORY EVER

I wear a Madewell scarf least once or twice a week. They are my favorite accessory ever!  I hope they stay in style for a while!

FAVORITE PARIS GUIDE

Walking in Paris is the only way to explore. I have found the best stores and cafe’s that way. But, if it’s your first time, this little book will help.

MY FAVORITE PERFUME

This perfume reminds me of Paris and Monet’s gardens

MY FAVORITE WATER BOTTLE

I don’t like to drink water but thank goodness for this bottle. It keeps me on track and tells me when to drink more!

FAVORITE WALL CALENDAR

Dreaming of travel, or need a gift for the travel lover, look no farther!

MY FAVORITE EARRINGS

Always a classic and every girl needs these in their wardrobe.

MY FAVORITE LENS

Again, I’m not big into having a lot of gear, but this lens is magical.

MY FAVORITE BUSINESS BOOK



I read this little book a few years ago and it sits by my desk and I read it over and over again! Best little business book in my opinion.

Ok, was this fun or what?  I hope you enjoy my favorite things list and maybe I just made your Christmas shopping a little easier! It’s fun playing Oprah (and yes, that is my face photoshopped on her image, just couldn’t resist) and I can’t WAIT until Dec. 13th to start our giveaway!!  Make sure you follow along on Instagram @juliepaisley_ and on FB for all the details! Oh and don’t forget to share this with your friends.

Last but not least, SIGN UP FOR MY EMAIL LIST to be the first to know when the giveaway launches!!

XOXO,

Julie
