About the movie Titanic

84 years later, a 100 year-old woman named Rose DeWitt Bukater tells the story to her granddaughter Lizzy Calvert, Brock Lovett, Lewis Bodine, Bobby Buell and Anatoly Mikailavich on the Keldysh about her life set in April 10th 1912, on a ship called Titanic when young Rose boards the departing ship with the upper-class passengers and her mother, Ruth DeWitt Bukater, and her fiancé, Caledon Hockley. Meanwhile, a drifter and artist named Jack Dawson and his best friend Fabrizio De Rossi win third-class tickets to the ship in a game. And she explains the whole story from departure until the death of Titanic on its first and last voyage April 15th, 1912 at 2:20 in the morning.

10 Christmas Gifts For..

 10 Christmas gift ideas for...the picky woman in your life. A guide, not personal Christmas list ;)


1. A three month gift subscription to Umba Box. At $90 ($75+5/month shipping), this is a little more pricey gift. However, it's the Christmas gift that keeps on giving...quite literally! Your special lady will receive lovely handmade gifts once a month for three months. If you're interested in this option, feel free to check out my October Umba Box review here, it has a lovely coupon code for you to save $5!

2. Gold is making its comeback. Here are a few gold necklaces that are modern, beautiful and under $60... the Gold Chevron Necklace & Gold Falling Leaves Necklace.


 
3. An eReader. My boy's parents bought me the Kindle Paperwhite and am in love with it. Easy to use. Easy to read. Perfect for the frequent traveler.

4. Fun throw pillows or blankets. These red polka dot pillows would be a cute addition to any couch.


5. A Keurig Platinum Mini Brewer. This Keurig is on sale for less than $100, plus it's a pretty color. Need I say more?

6. Approach this gift with caution! Free weights, yoga mats or other workout equipment. I have been doing the 30 Shred with Jillian Michaels, and purchased 5 lb. weights. Perhaps a bit lofty of me? By circuit two my arms h.u.r.t. Additional weights, maybe 3 lbs., would be nice. Thankfully, I have a Dick's Sports gift card. It's an interesting gift idea to consider, eh?

7. This tote bag for the bookworm in your life or this tote for the eco friendly ladies. These are absolutely ideal for trips to the library or grocery store. Not to get all tree hugger on you, but less plastic bags = a better world, right?


8. This print by YellowHeartArt. So lovely! This 8x10 would be great to frame and hang...just about anywhere.




9. Now here is a gift idea! fashionABLE is a not-for-profit that creates sustainable business for women in Africa.  fashionABLE was at The Influence Conference and reached out to our blogging community by saying, "If every blogger at Influence sold 10 scarves, we would be able to employ 20 more women to keep them off the streets." That's TWENTY women out of prostitution, in a work environment. Wow! I have the privilege of owning a fashionABLE scarf...it's one of my favorite scarves.



10. Travel accessories...how fun is this Vintage Rome About Travel Case or this I See Whoo Contact Case???
