The Ultimate #Heartbreaker Holiday Gift Guide (Last Minute Edition!) !!

by Kristina Lachaga (You're Welcome !!!!)

The truth is out...I'm a TOTAL last-minute holiday shopper. I hate to admit it, but it's become a tradition for me to literally finish my shopping on Christmas Eve Eve and finish wrapping seconds before I have to hit the hay cause SANTA IS COMING. ((Fun fact......when I was little, I actually used to start writing my Christmas cards in July, which is the literal definition of 'Christmas in July' according to that I'm now running about 5 months behind!! LOL)).

To help make your holiday shopping this weekend ((and week)) a lil bit easier....I put together The Ultimate #Heartbreaker Holiday Gift Guide (Last Minute Edition!). YAY. SUPER EXCITED. This is your last minute Secret Santa inspo, the perf presents to get your besties, sis, cousins, long lost relatives and neighbors that are totally awesome, or for Santa to give to YOU!

Basically what every girl on your list will absolutely adore x 1000000. It's time to print this list out RIGHT NOW & get your shopping shoes we go!

1. Cozy Up with a Good Read: You're Invited by Jen Malone and Gail Nall

Grab it at Barnes & Noble or Order it Online HERE!

Plus, check out their other AMAZING books like...Map to the Stars, At Your Service, Breaking the Ice, & don't forget to preorder You're Invited Too ((YAY sequel!!!)), which will be released February 16th, 2016.

Love, love, LOVE this book!'s no secret that Simon & Schuster/Aladdin MIX's You're Invited((written by the fab Jen Malone & Gail Nall)) inspired my soon-to-be-released single "R.S.V.P." which will hit iTunes early 2016!

You're Invited follows the story of four best friends that decide to form a party planning business called 'R.S.V.P.' in their small beach town over the summer and how their business aspirations affects their friendships with each other. I'm sure it will be a new fave book to add to your collection & that the story and message will resonate with them!

Each girl in You're Invited has her own unique personality and different strengths -I could definitely see a bit of myself in each of the main characters. I love that the book touches on important topics for tweens and teens - being true to yourself while still finding out who you are, the value of true friendship, and following your heart's dream. I wanted to make sure I incorporated those themes into my song 'R.S.V.P.' and I hope readers will enjoy the book as much as I did, share it with their best friends, and then play 'R.S.V.P.' on repeat when it hits iTunes!

Plus, click HERE for a SNEAK PEEK of "R.S.V.P." - YAY!
