Gift Guide: $25 and Under

Now that I’ve finally accepted that it is, in fact, December (didn’t it kind of sneak up on us out of nowhere?!) – I can finally officially start my gift shopping. Even if you are on a budget, you can still check everyone off your list and show all of your friends and family just how special they are to you with these gifts that are $25 and under!

Black Friday Sale Roundup: Beauty

Now that we’ve gotten a good number of the clothing-centric sales out of the way, it’s time to stock up on all of your favorite beauty products. These items rarely go on sale so there’s no better time to fill your cart up – AND there are so many things that could be perfect as stocking stuffers!

Sephora: Black Friday Beauty Sets – starting at just $10! Seriously guys, you can’t pass these up: Nest Perfume Trio for $12, Origins Cult Faves 4-pack for $18, and Drybar Dry Shampoo Duo for $30..just to name a few! Hurry before these all get scooped up!

Ulta: You can find all of Ulta’s Black Friday Beauty Busters here (BareMinerals and Tarte beauty kits for under $20, 20% off Clarisonic holiday sets…) but hurry they are selling out fast!

Glossier: This is their only sale of the year! 20% off everything + free shipping! Some of the products I’m a little (read: really) obsessed with include: boy brow, Generation G lip color, milk jelly cleanser, haloscope…okay let’s just say I’m obsessed with pretty much everything!

Happy shopping – stay tuned for more shopping guides throughout the day!

PS- Check out our Black Friday Sale Roundup for all things fashion that we posted earlier today!

Top Gifts for Women (Under $50!)

Ready or not, it’s that time of year again, folks! To make things a little less stressful, we’ve rounded up a series of gifts for your consideration. First up, Gifts for Women – Under $50.

1. Capri Blue Candles – find tons of options at Anthropologie!

Some faves: Iridescent Jar Candle / Marbled Glass Candle / Burnished Metal (with soapstone lids!) and these darling Succulent Candles.

2. Glossier gifts are sure to please, and they don’t break the bank!

Pair the Glossier Terry Headband with one of their cleansing masks – the detoxifying Mega Greens Galaxy Pack or Mousturizing Moon Mask. I’d also highly recommend Generation G Matte Lipstick (my favorite shades are Jam and Zip) and ‘The Supers’ concentrated serums. Pick up Super Bounce for softer skin and Super Glow, for an even skin tone. Add Priming Moisturizer before adding makeup! Save 20% on your first Glossier purchase by shopping with this link.

3. Save big with seasonal makeup kits.

Angel Food / Glitter Smokey Eye / Palm Beach
Waikiki / X Gray Malin Deer Valley / Sparkling Champagne

5. Turkish Towels – Love these multi-purpose towels. Great for laying out on the beach or as a swimsuit coverup. Also makes a great shawl / oversized scarf. Can also be used as a traditional hand or body towel or fun home decor accent. The Linum Home Textiles line at Nordstrom is a personal favorite.

Mark your calendars! Glossier has announced that the sold-out Stretch Concealer and coveted Generation G Lipsticks will be restocked this July.

Glossier-Review-Generation-G-Lipstick

Demand overwhelmed supply very quickly, and only the first to add to cart were able to get their hands on these cult beauty favorites so far this year. I snatched up Generation G in ‘Crush’ and just can’t get enough. It is the perfect compromise between lipstick, lip stain, lip gloss and balm. I want to collect them all (and not run out of my current supply before July – we’ll see!).

Also on my list upon restock is Glossier Stretch Concealer. Based on the blogger reviews to date, I have no doubts that this product lives up to its promise!
Where-to-Purchase-Glossier

So, what is in stock?

  • The new Flavored Balm Dotcom Trio {for a limited time!} features three fun flavors in Rose, Cherry, and Mint.
  • Boy Brow (in all 3 shades!) is currently in-stock and ready for ation.
  • My new favorite face wash, Milky Jelly Cleanser, is also available. (My favorite travel option is Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes).
  • If you’re in need of a new mask (or just up for trying a bunch of options), the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack has received high marks, and I trust the Moisturizing Moon Mask is a keeper, too.
  • Glossier also recently debuted some darling merch, including sweatshirts, pink pouches, logo pins and terry headbands.
