Stuff Those Stockings

Hi there. Irene from designstiles today.

Christmas is fast approaching so I wanted to share some stocking stuffers. Sometimes the best things come in small packages.


1. Little Law Man Badge – Great for kids 3 and up. Let the town know they mean business.

2. Headband – a pretty little headband in a variety of colors. And it actually stays put. Doesn’t slip, so I hear.

3. Nail trimmer – My son is one and to this day I have not cut his nails myself because I’m too scared I’ll cut him. My husband trims his nails and based off the reviews, I can take over if we buy this. It’s thee nail trimmer to get.

4. Socks – such a cliche gift but I’m all for patterned socks for kids. Love the colors and am a sucker for stripes.

5. Bear Booties – I mean. They have little claws. So adorable.

6. Brush – Doubles as a brush and a toy. It’s a win-win.

7. Banana Rattle – Looks so soft and squishy. Ideal for teething babies.

8. Nightlight – Sleep tight babies and kids, this stylish lion nightlight makes darker rooms way less scary.

Happy Holiday shopping.

The Venue 8 3000 Series Tablet by Dell


The holidays are fast approaching, which means life is going to get a little hectic! Are you ready? It is always such a busy time of year so best be organized! This year, thanks to Dell, I’ll be getting organized & navigating through the holidays with the brand new Venue 8 3000 Series Tablet. Whether I’m bookmarking, pinning, online shopping or party-planning, I’m certain that my Dell Venue 8 Tablet will minimize chaos & help me keep my head on straight!

One of my favorite things about the Dell Venue 8 Pro is that it is super thin and light, only 9 mm thin, so it fits easily into some of my smallest handbags and adds very little weight.   I always have my Dell Tablet with me when I’m out and about. I love to use it for pinning holiday recipes while waiting for the kids to get out of school (I’m always way too early to the parking lot!)  The Dell Venue 8 Pro has an 8″ HD (1280×800) display which is the perfect size.  The screen is soooo clear and crisp, it has amazing resolution and brightness. Another thing I’ve noticed is that I can use it off and on all day long while barely draining the battery. The battery life can’t be beat!


If you like taking photos as much as I do, you will just love the Tablet’s camara. The Dell Venue 8 comes with a 1.2MP front camera and a 5MP back camera so you’ll get clear, crisp photos without the need to edit. If you do enjoy playing with photo filters, effects, collages, etc you will find so many fun & free photo apps in the Play Store. I’ve already uploaded several of my favorites. No need to worry about storage space, because Dell’s new tablet also has 32GB5 of on-board storage, more than ever before. So you’ll have plenty of room to store photos, videos, music, games, etc.

The Dell Venue 8 Pro comes with the latest Windows 8.1 operating system and a 1-year license for Microsoft Office 365 Personal. You’ll also get direct access to Xbox Music, videos, games and Skype to help you stay connected.


From bookmarking, Pinning, or using it while out and about shopping, the Venue 8 3000 Series Tablet will help you navigate the busy holidays. Get one for yourself and one for that special someone this holiday season.

With Dell technology, it’s easy to give the gifts that fuel their dreams no matter what they love to do: music lover, movie buff, fitness fanatic, avid gamer, fab foodie, and gadget lover. From the Dell Inspiron 5000 Series to the Dell Venue 8 tablet to the latest TVs and electronics, inspire their every passion. And with so many gift ideas in the Dell Holiday Lookbook, finding the perfect gift is a snap.
