A Quick Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide 2017

Holiday Gift Guide 2017

Hi friends! Today we are sharing a quick gift guide to hopefully give you some ideas on what to gift this Holiday season! We are sharing some of our favorite products from beauty and fashion to fitness and electronics. We hope you find something for your special someone! So without further ado let's jump right in and start with some beauty products...

Beauty

Kylie Cosmetics

I recently purchased Kylie Cosmetics for the first time over Black Friday and I am dying over her lip gloss!! The shade I purchased is called Koko K and its the perfect muted dusty pink! It stays on for so long and it's not sticky at all! One reason I really like this as a gift idea is because these suckers can be hard to come by and since they are mainly sold online (besides a few pop up shops)  not everyone has them! If you can get your hands on them, any beauty lover would absolutely love this! These ship within a few days so if you order these soon you will be A-OK!

Lorac Unzipped Eyeshadow Palette

The Lorac Unzipped Palette is something that I've always wanted to add to my makeup collection but have yet to purchase it for myself. I have tested it a few times and love the colors and pigmentation. I ended up purchasing this bad boy for my sister this year for Christmas. Can't wait for her to try it out!

Benefit "Dew The Hoola"

The Benefit Dew the Hoola is a liquid bronzer that I have tried a sample of and this guy is on my Christmas wish list! Its so good! It's great for paler- medium skin tones. I like to mix it with a little bit of primer and it instantly makes me look tan and glowy! Plus it really helps to have an extra boost of tan and glow in the winter months!

The eyeshadow palette and benefit bronzer ship within just a few days from Ulta BUT Ulta sare nearly everywhere so if you really wait last minute, check out the closet one to you and I'm sure you'll find these goodies!

Fashion

Shoes!

I think one of the best gift ideas out there are shoes! Back is high school when my husband and I  first started dating he got me a pair of red high heels for my birthday. I didn't ask for them or anything, he just picked them out because he knew my shoe size! I loved those shoes so much!! It is one of my favorite gifts to date!

If you know the persons shoe size your gifting to then the world is your oyster! I think I get my husband a pair of shoes every year! For him I always go for high top vans. But for my sister and mom, booties, heels, and even running shoes are always a good idea! Here are some of our favorites:

 

Lululemon

Whether you are shopping for a girl or guy lululemon is where it's at! I purchased my dad a pair of socks from here because honestly, there is nothing quite like them. Although this place is pricey the quality holds up. I received my first pair of luluelemon leggings in 2011 and still wear them to this day!! Talk about good quality!

I asked for a pair of the align leggings for Christmas and I have my eye on a few more items as well! 

Kendra Scott Jewelry

Jewelry is a great gift no matter the occasion and Kendra Scott is a favorite of ours! We love her designs and her prices are very affordable for how great the quality is. Her jewelry is 14k gold so it will not tarnish over time. This will make a great gift for a mother-in-law, grandmother, aunt, or sister. Anyone who enjoys a beautiful piece of jewlery will love this gift!

Health & Wellness

Essential Oil Diffuser

We love diffusing in our household! The spa like smells give off great energy and the combination of oils can create a very relaxing space. Oils are good for so many things so we highly recommend this as a gift to anyone but especially health conscious people! PS. the diffuser linked is the best diffuser I have ever used!!

Resistance Bands

For those workout gurus in your life or even those who want to start on a healthy lifestyle these resistance bands would make a great gift! I get these off amazon for so cheap! These are great because you can do at home workouts and store these so easily.  A favorite workout is to get in a squat position while the band is around the ankles, then do side to side heel touches. You will quickly feel the burn! 

Hydro Flask!

This is another item that is on my wish list. I have something similar now that I use every single day but it is a bit beat up so I'm hoping I get this guy! These are great for keeping your water cold for HOURS and HOURS! This would be an awesome gift for anyone but especially those who workout or just consume a lot of liquids!

These items are all amazon prime which means 2 day shipping! These are perfect for last minute gifts!

Electronics

Apple Watch

We aren't super into electronics but we have one recommendation...An apple watch. This would make a great gift for truly anyone. It does so many cool things but the main thing I use it for is to track my activity levels and of course for notifications.

The activity levels I look at are how many hours I stand in a day, how many minutes I exercise, and how many calories I burn. Plus, I also look at my heart rate and how many steps I take in a day. Its just great tool to have to track how active you really are. I find that it pushes me to stand more and just move around more. It's a mini motivator!

 

And there you have it! We love all these products and we hope this guide helped you! We like to think a lot of these suggestions are gender neutral so if you found something for your special someone we have done our job :)

Home For Christmas - A Blush Pink Bedroom

Hello and welcome to our Home for Christmas blog tour! Today Lacey and I are joining a few talented blogger friends to bring you Christmas decorating ideas.

If you are coming from Maison De Cing, welcome, we are so happy to have you! Lacey and I are a mother daughter team and share a love for decorating, thrifting, fashion and beauty. Today we are sharing my master bedroom decorated for Christmas with a romantic French vibe and a touch of blush pink. You can check out more of our rooms decorated for Christmas in our Christmas Home Tour HERE.

Home For Christmas - A Blush Pink Bedroom

It doesn't take much to add a bit of Christmas cheer to any space. In my bedroom I started by adding this sweet little 6 foot flocked tree from Walmart. When I saw this tree was only $30 I had to snap it up! If you've been here before you know I love a good deal and hardly ever pay full price for anything!

I found the blush velvet quilt and shams at Homegoods, along with the Joy pillow. The fur wreath was from Target last year but this year I decided to pin it to my headboard. A white table top tree adds some cheer to the nightstand.

For more Christmas touches I added these fur stockings to my mantel, along with some sparkly mercury votives. I was pretty excited to find this darling little blush fur stool at Hobby Lobby on sale for only $27!

Piles of pillows in different textures makes for a comfy cozy spot to lounge and read or watch movies.

A sweet little glitter house for only $5 at Michaels tops the stool and adds a bit of sparkle and whimsy.

Layers of texture in pillows, throw blankets and rugs along with the soft pretty color palette makes the bedroom a warm comfy cozy retreat that I love!!
