Last Minute Gift Guide: For the Beauty Lover

Nothing puts me in the holiday spirit quite like the promise of a colorful new eye shadow palette for my collection. It’s the one time of the year I don’t have to justify my want of designer mascara or sparkly caviar nail pearls because that’s the beauty (see what I did there?) of gift-giving season.

So I say away with you practicality! Pop open a can of Champers and treat yourself (and the ladies in your life) to something pretty, like one of these gems below:
1.. Because you can never have too many eye shadow palettes.
2.. This cult mascara stuffs stockings and changes lives.
3.. Save the calories for Santa and smell like an iced gingerbread cookie instead.
4. You want the men in your life to look good too.
5. Ultra-rich hand cream ornaments for your tree? Yes please!
6. Lip glosses in every shade for holiday celebrations and the year ahead!
7. Erase a year of skincare sins with this hypoallergenic Re-Everything Treatment Toner.
8. Ring in the new year looking looking fierce with this edgy 24/7 Eyeliner Collection.
9. Then glow all winter with this hydrating skincare set.
10. Countdown to Christmas with this advent calendar of festive nail polishes and sparkly goodies.

Gift Guide: For the Homebody

I think we have all fantasized about a cozy weekend indoors.  The snow falls lightly outside being illuminated by street lights while the fire blazes indoors. Glass of red wine in hand, snuggling on the couch with your boyfriend under a thick, hand-knit blanket… Please tell me it isn’t just me who finds themselves thinking of situations like this? Being the homebody that I am, there are quite a few gift ideas sure to make everyone happy as they spend more time indoors during the winter. Here are just a few:

1. What is better than a cup of tea on a chilly day? Add in some Netflix and you have the perfect relaxing day away from the cold. 2. I’ve basically been living in my blanket scarf since October. It’s so cozy and a perfect extra layer to wear around the house. 3. Your friend will have another reason to host a fun get together for you and your girlfriends – puzzle nights are surprisingly fun! 4. The second I get home and my shoes come off, my slippers come on. No better way to complete a cozy ensemble. 5. You know how much we love Pixie pants as an alternative to leggings! Your friend will appreciate a chic alternative to their lounging gear. 6. There is nothing I like better than lighting a candle and opening a good book. These are great because the scents are very fragrant and relaxing. 7. After you’ve had too many glasses of wine at puzzle night you can break out Apples to Apples for some more fun! 8. Slow cooker meals are so easy and will allow you to focus on making sure you get as much relaxation time as possible!
