Mobile Presets

Hi Babes! I have created 6 different presets that I have made that I use throughout my Instagram page. Each one of them varies in color, effect, etc. Please note that every photo and lighting situation is different and you might have to adjust each one based on that. All of these photos were shot on my iPhone. If you are using a camera, I recommend that you shoot RAW. Otherwise the presets will not edit like they look below. Natural light is key when taking photos but if you are taking them in direct sunlight, your photos will turn out a little harsh.

My preset pack includes a video on how to download the mobile presets onto your photo + how to use the presets on your photos.

Make sure to tag me and #SaraGailPresets on Instagram for a chance to be featured! I can't wait to see all of your pictures.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL. No Refunds will be given because this is a digital product. When you purchase these presets, no refund will be given.

Gift Guide For Toddlers

Can you believe Christmas is less than a week away! Where did the time go? If you are like me, and still shopping for Christmas gifts, here are a few options here. We recently received the ZAAZ in the mail by Nuna. It is by far my favorite item we have for Blakely. It fits her so well and you can adjust the height. We also love that we can put her up to the table so we can eat with us. The tray is removable and she still is safe sitting in the highchair with it surrounding her. The ZAAZ comes in a few different colorways as well so you have a few options when picking out your new highchair. We also purchased the Pony Cycle horse for Blakely and I am so excited to give it to her for Christmas! I have a feeling she is going to love it! I hope this helps with your last minute shopping and that you all have an amazing Christmas with your loved ones!

Gift Guide With Francesca's $30 and Under

Christmas is 13 days away! Can you believe it? I don't know about you babes, but I still have some major shopping to do. Fortunately, I did get a lot checked off my list thanks to Francesca's amazing gift selection. If you didn't know, Francesca's has a variety of options for every girl on your list. I wanted to share with you my favorites that I found as great gift options. 
I picked out the most amazing smelling candle because... what girl doesn't love a candle? I always feel like that is my go-to gift for the women in my life. They also carry a vairety of candle brands such as this one here.  I found the cutest paid of sweatpants. They are so soft and cozy. I thought grey was a great neutral option that every girl would love. I am a big fan of and I love that Francesca's has a great selections of itmes. They are always so fun and unique. With a new year comes a new planner. I grabbed the cutest gold planner for 2019 and cup by!
 I found the cutest socks with little pom detail. Not only would these make a great gift for $20 but they would also be a great little stocking stuffer. 
Speaking of stocking stuffers... I got a lip mask. Francesca's carries a variety of different masks that are great stocking stuffers and gifts for the girl who loves to pamper herself. 
Probably my favorite items that I picked out is the light up vanity mirror. This is such a fun gift that any women can use every day. It has LED lights, a touch screen button, and 360 rotation. All of these gift options are under $30 and perfect for all of the women in your life. Francesca's has it all. 

I also wanted to put together a few outfit ideas here as well if you are looking to buy an outfit for a gift or even for yourself. Below are links to a few of my favorite clothing items/shoes.

Conair True Glow Glam

Happy Wednesday Babes! Hope your week has been good so far! Today, I am talking all about Conair's True Glow Beauty tools. I have been using the Conair vibrating makeup blender, brush, and heated eyelash curler. I am always about flawless skin and these Conair tools help me achieve that kind of makeup look.

Vibrating Makeup Blender - What does the vibration do? The Vibration helps to have a smooth and even application. I know this can be hard sometimes to make everything look even and this has helped so much. I also love that it has a standing base so that it can stand up without having to get all over everything in my makeup bag. The blender is super soft and helps give a natural glowing look that everyone wants to achieve when applying makeup.  SHOP HERE

Vibrating Makeup Brush - I use this to apply my powder. The vibration helps evenly disperse the powder throughout my face for an airbrushed flawless finish to my makeup. The brush comes with two heads. One for powder and the other for your foundation. I love my multipurpose vibration brush + it is super easy to clean. SHOP HERE

Heated Eyelash Curler - This is the perfect tool for on the go touchups. The heated eyelash curler instantly adds lift and volume to your lashes. This gives an awaking effect to your eyes. I love that it is super small, lightweight, and perfect for travel. The heated eyelash curler is so easy to use and a must-have for every girl! SHOP HERE

Thermal Paraffin Bath Moisturizing System -  The paraffin is a heated wax treatment. This is  THE best during these cold months. I dip my hands in the melted wax and it leaves my hands feeling so moisturized, smooth, and softens my skin. You can also dip your elbows and heels as well. I normally do this on nights that I take a bath, do a face mask. I give myself a mini spa night at home which is kind of fun! The wax takes about 90 minutes to melt so you have to plan before using it. After I dip my hands, I leave it on for a couple of minutes for it to completely dry. I then peel the wax off (my favorite part) and toss the wax. After, my hands feel baby soft. I absolutely love the paraffin. I think also think this would make a great gift for the holidays.

Gift Guide For Her With Village Pointe

I get a ton of questions on what our favorite things to do in Omaha are and where I like to shop. Well... the answer to that question is Village Pointe! I'm sure most of you have shopped at Village Pointe a time or two. If you haven't, you NEED to! We love shopping at Village Pointe for so many reasons! Village Pointe is a family friendly environment with a wide range of stores to shop at. With the holidays quickly approaching, I thought it would be fun to round up my favorite gifts for HER from a variety of stores at Village Pointe. Finding the perfect gift can be hard but I've made things easy for you this year!

 I found the perfect wine glasses ON SALE at Pier1. They have such a great variety to choose from. I love the home decor and kitchen essentials! This is a great place to stop for someone who loves to cook, drink wine, or loves a great variety of home decor. Throw blankets are always a fun and cozy gift to give. Here is one from Peir1 that I am loving!

I love to shop for Blakely at GAP! I got her the cutest little beanie, mitten, shoes, and reindeer slippers. Not only do they have the cutest stuff for the littles in your life, but also for mom, grandma, sister, and friends!

Sephora is my favorite places to shop for the beauty lover. Who doesn't love a new lip shade, or fun face mask to pamper themselves with? Do you have a girl on your list who loves perfume? Yep, Sephora has that too!  During the holidays Sephora also has a variety of gift sets at great prices. Here are two of my favorites - #1 and #2. I picked up the NARS pallet that has a bronzer (that is perfect for contouring) blush and a highlighter. This is a great everyday makeup pallet that you can't go wrong with giving as a gift. I also picked up a mini Drunk Elephant Baby Facial resurfacing face mask that came with a facial oil. These mini boxes are a great gift for under $25! These also make great stocking stuffers!

Scheels is perfect for the whole family but they have some great Nike pullovers that I grabbed as gifts. I don't know about you all, but I live in sweatshirts and I always feel that they are a great gift to give. If you haven't checked it out yet, their toddler section is to die for. They have a range of Nike, Adidas, and Under Armor that is all so cute for toddlers. I've been getting Blakely a lot of that stuff lately because it's comfy for her to wear during the colder months. I love the variety of brands that Scheels carries. When I was in Scheels last weekend, I saw that they are now carrying Alo Yoga which is one of my favorite athleisure brands. They have THE best leggings!

I also love shopping at Kendra Scott (SOOO excited to have this store at Village Pointe) Francesca's, Banana Republic, American Eagle, Lululemon, Bath and Body Works, Evereve, and Old Navy. There are so many options and you only have to drive to ONE place. How easy is that?!

Going to Village Pointe has made Christmas shopping SO easy. Its a one-stop shop for everyone on your list. If you still aren't sure what to get her, stop into Village Pointe's main office and grab a Village Pointe gift card for her to use at any store there.

Women's Gift Guide

5 things you probably don't know about me

1. I am a clean freak - There is no better feeling than a clean and organized house. I love to have things organized and in a certain spot. I have to pick up the house before I can go to bed because I can't stand waking up to a mess. Don't get me wrong, my house is never perfect... especially with a toddler. I just function much better when things are cleaned, picked up, and organized.

2. I grew up with very little - My parents were divorced my whole life. My mom lived in Nebraska and my dad lived in Virginia. Being a mom now, and looking back, I don't know how my parents did it alone. I do know that things weren't easy and that my parents did the best that they could. I actually had a really tough time growing up. Between moving all the time, switching schools, and dealing with my parents struggling, things weren't always easy. I went to school in a very wealthy part of Virginia where most kids had two parents, a nice house, and all wore Limited Too (remember those Limited Too days?!!). This was not my case, I was always sad that I didn't have the things that they did. I was made fun of for the clothes that I wore and the things that I didn't have. As a kid, this is so hard to go through.
I also didn't have a very good relationship with my mom when I was younger. Today, I am closer with my mom today than ever before. After having a baby, I needed her more than ever.
All of these experiences that I went through have made me the person that I am today. Because of my past, I strive to work hard and cherish nice things. I couldn't sit back and wait for things to happen for me. I had work hard to create the life that I wanted so badly for myself, my family and our future.

3. I graduated high school in 3 years - I was not a fan of school. I always struggled to learn and hated being the new kid all of the time. I would take every "sick" day that I could. Towards the end of high school, I begged my mom to let me drop out. I am glad she never let me do that because I took things into my own hands. I was determined to get out of there as soon as I could. I decided to take Summer school and extra classes in the mornings so that I could graduate a year early and guess what.... I DID IT!

4. I am a planner- I have to plan my days, how things are going to go, and how I am going to get them done. I am not a spontaneous person at all. I honestly wish I wasn't like this. Although it keeps me organized and productive... I just wish I could go with the flow.

5. I met my husband when I was 18 - I always knew that I would get married young. I wanted to start my own life as soon as I could. My first impression of Zach was not exactly how I had hoped. Let's just say.. he didn't make the best first impression and I told myself that I would never date him (haha). Well... almost 9 years later, here we are! He somehow made up for his bad first impression and I fell in love with him. I couldn't imagine life without him and the life that we have created together. Zach and I got engaged at 21 and married each other 11 months later. We have now been married for 5 years. We truly make the best team!
