We have SOOO many pretty things to show you! Xx
I am OVER the moon over how much you guys LOVED the first beauty gift guide! So as requested; here is part 2! This gift guide has a little bit of EVERYTHING. Of course there’s some beauty (seriously the shadow palette has all the sparkle). There’s some chic + COZY home goodness. Some AMAZING accessories + well let me just show you!!
One for you… One for me…
It’s ALL about the hair accessories, babes. These headbands look SO expensive + have such a Chanel vibe to them. The pearls dress up any outfit + the VELVET gives you that little extra feel of luxe. I love these to add a little something to ANY hair style. My fav is pairing them with a BIG braid or DRESSING UP your every day pony. This comes as a pack of 3, so you can gift 2 + keep one for yourself!! You deserve it! You fancy, hun. ($12.99)
You guys KNOW about my love affair with coffee + by association ALL the PRETTY mugs that hold that delicious nectar. I was SOO excited to find one of my fav mugs in a set! This is the PERFECT his + hers mug set. You can grab this for your fav newly engaged couple or break up the set + gift separately to Mom + Dad or siblings. These are part of the Chip + Joanna Gaines Target home line, so you KNOW they are just as functional as they are BEAUTIFUL. And yes, I suppose you can use them for tea or hot cocoa, but we all KNOW what will be in my mug. 16oz stoneware. Microwave + dishwasher safe. Coffee cheers Xx ($11.99)
I’m secretly obsessed with Parisian fashion culture. Guys, I wanna be a little French girl lol! I’m just mesmerized by the effortless minimalistic style. You KNOW the one. The fitted jeans, classic white tee, but styled beautifully with the perfect shade of red lipstick. COME ON. This is one of my favorite style guides. It’s a beautiful collection of stories on life, LOVE, style, and career, from Paris to New York. The author inspires her readers to create an effortless style all their own. It’s the perfect gift for the “girl who has everything”. And it looks SOOO good on your desk, coffee table or end stand. OUI OUI mon chéri! ($17.99)
If you don’t own a Pat McGrath lipstick, you’re cheating yourself! This FORMULA is incredible. It’s SUPER pigmented (little goes a long way) + the texture is SOO creamy. The HYDRATION level is insane. The cases are unbelievably couture, look at that GOLD on black lip detail. And they use a very cool blurring technology to hide lines + imperfections in the LIPS. These lipsticks leave your lips DRENCHED in color, but also feeling hydrated + lightweight. The ideal shades to take you from running errands to work at the OFFICE then to your HOLIDAY party! Flesh 3 is the most dreamy holiday red lipstick. ($25)
These are the CUTEST stocking stuffers ever!! I’m notorious for losing my keys + this is such a CHIC way to keep track of them. Pick your style, pop your keys on + out the door you go. You can throw it on your wrist + get the kids in their car seats. You can find it SO easy in your purse or diaper bag. There’s tons of styles + COLORS!! Every WOMAN in your life NEEDS one of these!! ($10).
Glitz, GLITTER + glam! Oh my. This gorgeous palette has 24 eyeshadows in MATTE + metallic finishes, as well as glitter-gel toppers. DROOL. There’s literally everything you need to CREATE beautiful holiday eye looks! BONUS! It comes with a travel liner + MASCARA. It’s the PERFECT gift for your GLAM AF bestie. ($32.50)
This throw is SOOO flippin’ soft. It looks very expensive + is my favorite blanket to cuddle up with on the couch. I have it in the Leopard, but for under $30 bucks, I’m definitely grabbing it in the gray stripe color. It’s a faux fur, so our fuzzy friends are safe + sound. It’s plush microfiber, so when I spilled coffee all over it, I just popped it in the washer + tumble dried it on low heat. This will be your new fav throw, PROMISE. ($26.99)
This is a little tube of magic! I have one in my bag at all times! The FORMULA is amazing because it just melts into the skin. Chapped lips be GONE. I use it for everything, chapped lips, dry cuticles + in a pinch it’s great for minor scrapes + burns. It evens soothes my husbands rough elbows. MAGIC. When I pull this out for myself, my 2yr old B, has to have some too! It’s SUPER cute. The ingredients are safe + gentle so it’s 100 percent Mom-approved! Great stocking stuffer, teacher or mailman gift. Don’t forget to grab one for yourself! ($9.50)
Let’s make this the most CHIC holiday yet! Xx
