HOLIDAY GIFT IDEAS: FOR THE BEAUTY LOVER



I can't believe we're already starting to think about Christmas and gift ideas already! How quickly time flies.  It seems as though, without fail, the stores are decked out in holiday-everything the day right after Halloween. I recently joked that I am going to be a Christmas tree for Halloween next year and come out earlier than the stores. MuhaHA!

 Off topic (as per usual) - in keeping with the post - I've put together a few ideas for that beauty lover on your list. I'll give you a quick low down on why I selected each item:

HERE WE GO - 

The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick is a staple of mine - it's the perfect highlight to achieve that holiday glow but I also tend to wear this year round. 

The ShuUemura eyelash curler is the best thing since sliced bread. 

I'm all about an effortless lip these days, and MAC always has great sets of holiday lip glasses in an array of different colours. 

The beauty blender pretty much does what its called - no streaks, just flawless skin. 

The Naked 3 palette has been on my wish list for quite some time. I have the original Naked Palette, but would love to add this one to my collection (and pretty sure every other girl that doesn't own one would too)

The lip key chain! Ok so lets be honest, I feel like keychains are the types of things you receive as gifts and never would actually purchase for yourself but ACTUALLY appreciate and love when you get one. Make sense? Yes. 

I have an addiction to Diptyque candles. They are simply the greatest. 

Gold sparkly flats with lipstick incorporated on them? SOLD. 

I'm a sucker for bright red nail polish (I recently was told my nails were so "festive" little did they know I wear the colour all year round) My favourite red is Essie's Lollipop. 

 The iPhone case is like SO cute. 

The Chloe perfume is pretty much a staple for a lot of gals out there - if you haven't smelled it you should. 

I'm not exactly in the market for a new snowboard but if you know someone that is AND a beauty lover, I'm pretty sure this takes the cake on THE PERFECT GIFT. I mean, how adorable is it?

And any beauty obsessive would appreciate a good set of fresh makeup brushes (and of course, limited edition.) 

Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara, is well, perfection in a tube. 

And lastly! The Kate Spade makeup case is adorable. I mean, who doesn't like gold glitter? 

So there we go. A few ideas to get that brain of yours turning. Whatcha think?

Faux leather leggings are a staple of mine, especially throughout the cooler months. I had been eyeing a $$$ pair for quite some time, but being the budget friendly shopper that I am, I was convinced that I could find something similar without the price tag. I was looking for a pair that were comfortable, slightly higher on the rise, and tapered at the ankle. I tried on various other inexpensive pairs but they were either 1) cut too low and dug into my hips 2) not very stretchy and 3) loose at the ankles. I was thrilled to come across this pair at Joe Fresh - not only are they super comfortable, they also hit at just the right point on my hips, and graze the my ankles for the slim fit I was looking for.

I hope you're all having a great start to the week! I had a busy weekend - catching up with friends & family, squeezing in some workouts, and speaking on a panel at Spark Sessions with the ever so lovely My Fash Avenue and The Prep Guy, moderated by the beautiful Jess Huchinson from Shine PR. It was truly a wonderful experience and loved every minute of it. To those that I met at the conference this weekend, it was so nice to meet you! You are all so beautiful and inspiring.

I received several compliments on my shoes at the session, so I decided to incorporate them into a post. For all those that share a similar kind of love / obsession for the Valentino studded pumps, these shoes are a great budget friendly alternative (they are also on sale!)

For the conference, I was wearing an all-black look but decided to put together a more casual look as the heels can easily be dressed up or down. I paired them with ripped jeans, a black turtleneck and blazer, as I'm all about simplicity these days. 

Have a great days guys!
