I haven`t done one of these posts since November so sorry if it gets a little long but I have a couple of products I really want to share with you.so without further adieu here are some of the things I`ve `been loving recently. Continue reading
This is hopefully going to be a new series on my blog where my readers can interact and help me with future posts , what I mean by that is that hopefully some of you could leave me a comment with what piece or trend you might like or find useful for me to do next. So if there are any new trends you aren`t sure about , or might want someones elses styling opinion on leave it below or if there is a certain piece you want but you aren`t sure about how you would get as much wear out of it , you can leave me a link in the comments and I would love to do it.
Dreaming of SPRING
We have so many pretty things that we usually keep tucked away in drawers or boxes , so why not display them for our viewing pleasure ? Well I wanted to show you one way I love displaying my jewelry and pretty much anything else I might want to enjoy even when Ì`m not wearing it . My stand is from Ikea and it only costs 15$, and as you can see I added a ribbon to mine to make it even more special .Hope you enjoy this idea and try it for you`re self.
Another cheep and easy idea that you can add to you`re room is a “Memories jar” I saw a couple people talk about these and I though that it was a great idea. All you need is a mason jar of any size you find or prefer and you write on little pieces of paper things that have made you happy throughout the year , it could be anything from a really amazing day you spent with you`re frends to having got married . I personally don`t keep a journal and I tought that this would be a great substitute for that , because I for one always remember the bad things that have happened to me and forget about the little things that have made me happy. You can either read these at the end of the year to give you a positive view on the year that has just passed or even when you`re having a bad day and need a reminder of the things that really matter. How I make this a pretty piece to decorate my room is by writing my moments on post it notes of different colours . I really do think this is a great idea and I hope some of you try it.
My second Christmas gift guide post concentrates on the 16 to 19 age grup. If you want gift ideas for someone younger check out my first Gift guide.
Stocking Stuffers. (Under 10$)
Like I said in my last gift guide, even if you don`t do Stockings you can always get a couple of these smaller gifts and make your own Beauty Box that you can customise for the person you are giving it to.
1.Essie Nail polish “Golds” . 8.50$
2.Body Shop Hands and Nails set in the Rose scent. 10$
3.Stephen&Co Curved bar necklace. 10$
4.Philosophy Shower Gel/ Bubble Bath in vanilla. 10$
5.Real techniques Expert Face Brush. 9$
6Tart Gift Set. 10$
Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual , The best makeup book for a makeup lover in my opinion , I thing that around this age is important to gain some knowledge about how to properly use different products , the “science”behind them and most importantly gain knowledge about skincare.I think this book does a great job of covering all those aspects and more in a way that anyone can understand take away what they think is important. 14$
Smashbox Masterclass pallet 2 A great all around pallet , it has everything you can ask for From natural eyeshadows to dark ones, blushes, bronzers and some gel eyeliners. 59$
Sigma ESSENTIAL KIT – MR. BUNNY a staple in any makeup lovers collection should be good quality brushes . The problem is that makeup brushes can be quite expensive and when you are just starting to get into makeup and wanting to try as many things as you wish it can be hard to pay so much for a makeup brush set. 155$
Clarisonic Mia1 If they start wearing face makeup then it means that they need to be educated in the importance of takeing it off and caring for their skin. And no matter what this is a great tool for any age that they will hopefully use for a long time 99$
Kate Spade Wallet One thing that I think every girl should have is a nice wallet. A good quality wallet can last a good couple of years and is something that you use on a daily basis, something you always have with you so it is worth investing in. 178$
IPad Mini The most expensive of all the gifts I showed in this gift guide but I really belive in the practicality of them. I use my IPad every day for classes , listening to music, I do all my reading on it and so much more. It really isn`t just a toy anymore it can be really helpful( best gift for a college student!!!!) 299$
If you think I missed something or you have some great gift ideas , share them with us, I would really love to hear them.
