For the past few years, there is always one box under the Christmas tree from me to my little sister that she instantly looks for, finds, and shakes to hear for rattling. If she hears the rattling, then she already knows its my annual gift to her…a box filled with makeup!
She loves makeup! So, I always try and give her a box of various makeup and brushes. I tend to put in about 50 pieces of makeup, brushes/applicators, and maybe a cosmetic bag in the box and all of it comes from E.L.F!
In case you are living under a drab rock, E.L.F is a cosmetic line that got its fame and glory by offering high quality makeup for a $1. Now, they still have $1 makeup, but they have grown over the years to offer other items that are just a couple bucks more, but still great quality. Actually, E.L.F’s affordable makeup and wide selection is what gave me the idea to create this little annual gift and I love that my sister looks for it every year and this year will be no exception.
E.L.F. is currently offering a Buy 1 get the second half off promotion. Needless to say this is just the right time for me to gather up the items I want to add to this year’s beauty box for my sister. Time to go order $75 worth of E.L.F cosmetics, because $75 equals FREE SHIPPING which are my favorite words this time of year!
One of the hardest things to find is a pair of fly red booties. The ones I tend to find are super simple and clean line or they have a ridiculously high heel/platform that look super slutty/hooker-ish.
Well, I spotted these red Whiskey A Go Go booties by Velvet Angels and I instantly started fawning. I know some of you might be turning your nose the faux croc red skin, but I love it paired with the stacked wood heel and platform. I guess you can say it softens the blow!
Although, I’m already imagining the dream scenarios the red boots are going to star in my dream, I’m also loving the black and natural, also! Especially the natural, because I feel you can never have too many natural shoes!
Starting this month, designer Tory Burch debuts her first sunglasses collection. The collection will possess a vintage feel with a modern twist. The collection is currently available at Tory Burch boutiques and online.
Sometimes the smallest gift can make someone super happy, because its just right for them. Case in point, this Mary Green Paris Sleep mask looks super luxe and would be a perfect gift for that “diva” or “princess” on your list that has big dreams that involve them taking over Paris one day! I think every girl at some point in their life wonders what it would be like to live the life of a Parsian. Well, I know I have!
Anyway, you can grab this beautiful eye mask at Urban Outfitters for $24.
I’m a very sensitive person. I cry at any and all ASPCA commercials.You know the ones with the Sarah McClaulin tear you up, too! However, there are times I tear up at a situation that the average person would equate me as being weird. One of these instances is when I see something so fabulous, that my eyes begin to water at the thought that something so incredible exists and is affordable enough for me to get my pre-manicure paws on. Case in point, this Gold Bar Clutch by Matt Bernson.
Isn’t “she” fab?! Matt Bernson, the man behind my favorite black gladiators this summer, recently introduced his Gold Bar Clutch and I am so thrilled. The clutch striking resembles the main staple of luxe and status; solid gold bar! The clutch is made of gold leather and lined with red satin. To help add to the bag uncanny resemblance, the top of the “bar” is stamped with Matt Bernson. Cherry on top? It’s only $156!
Since I plan to accessorize with gold accessories this holiday party season, I need this ASAP! However, it would work all year long. Plus, I love anything fashion related that can double as a conversation piece and this clutch definitely fits!
