I spent Black Friday and Saturday shopping on-line and around town for myself and ma girls. Here's a peek at what I've found so far from my Christmas list. Most of my picks are things that I love, so I figured that they'd make great gifts for my girlfriends. A lot of what I picked out is small, making for great stocking stuffers. Hope my list helps give you some holiday gifting ideas!
This Empire Klix Klutch case is great for that gal on-the-go. Cash, ID, cards and phone all in one colorful and chic place! It's an especially practical present for students, frequent travelers and ladies who could really benefit from some space-saving organization in their bags.
I don't like to go too far without my bag, but I still carry my own clutch case everywhere. I like that they come in a variety of bright hues, which are easy to spot inside of dark lined bags! You can pick up a case by tonight and get 35% off by using the promo code BLACK.
Akira had some stellar Black Friday sales and doorbuster promotions this weekend. They were offering 50% off all clearance items and 25% off of everything in-store! I nabbed this faux fur pom pom beanie for $20 and this plaid scarf for only $10.
This Maison Kitsune X Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Shampoo and Nourishing Protective Oil are absolutely lovely. The packaging and bottles are so pretty that they don't need fancy wrapping. The luxe products are great for ladies who could use some pampering in their life...aka all of us gals!
Here's another great beauty option considering the winter weather: BeeSpa Hand + Foot cream. One of my biggest winter beauty woes is dry, chapped skin. This magical stuff is made from essential oils, beeswax and shea butter - which help repair cracked skin while softening. Silky smooth skin here we come!
I myself have been loving on Clinique's latest beauty collection and figured that I'd share the beauty love by treating one of my make-up obsessed friends to some of their products.
The Cheek Pop blush colors are natural-looking and add just the right hint of romantic flush, while the Chubby Mascaras add some va-va-voom to sexy up those peepers. I've got chronically dry skin and I've been using their Dramatically Different Moisturizing cream on the daily. The cream is thick but not oily so I dab it on in the morning and at night.
I've met very few people who don't love EOS lip balms. They're cute, inexpensive and moisturizing. I snagged a few and made them look like candies for some of my work mates.
No matter what my budget is, I like to make sure that I take the time to wrap up my gifts in pretty boxes or bags. To stay on budget, I scour my local Dollar Tree and stock up on metallic bags, simple boxes, bows and tissue paper.
