This week it’s week 4 and this post will be about Christmas gift ideas for men and women and since I don’t really post anything about guys, let’s do their section first shall we.
If you’re like me you find it very hard to find gifts for guys when you’re so caught up in the world of girl. Am I right? Well, for you all I’ve come up with a few gift ideas for the guys.
We all need to look our best right? And so how can you go wrong with a grooming kit. This grooming kit, seen above, from Sephora comes complete with a nail file, nail clippers, a lint pad, small scissors and . . . a cork screw? This one is in a good travel size, but you can get any other grooming kit that you wish.
Some guys like cologne, and so if the guy you’re shopping for likes it why not get him some? You could get him a fragrance set like the one above or maybe just something similar.
Have a bit of fun and get them a T-Shirt with a silly caption, this ‘Sorry Girls, This Guy Is Taken’ Tee is a good example. You could even have a shirt custom printed with anything you want, maybe even with something they say a lot. It’s 21 days before Christmas so there’s still time.
Who says guys don’t like jewellery? The necklace is a Harry Potter Dark Mark Necklace, so if you have any Harry Potter Fans or just jewellery lovers in general then this piece would be a good gift for them.
A guy kit comes filled with goodies for boys, for example ‘The Man Can’ in the picture above has some great things for guys.
Sea Salt Soap
You could always give something unusual, I mean who’s ever heard of sea salt soap? Or, of course, you could always think of something else unusual to give a little spice to your Christmas gifts this year.
Teddy bear. Why? Why not? What would be better than to see that look on his face when he unwraps a teddy!?! Priceless! Give a try and tell me the reaction in the comments of this post later. We can make a game of it.
*Bonus – You could always bake something as little something something extra with the presents.
Now onto the girls.
Get one for her and you (or maybe for her and her friend if you’re her mom, or, uncle . . . or something). Friendship bracelets mean a lot and would make a great Christmas present. Get a design that would suit both wearers.
Makeup Sample Set
Are you shopping for someone who has just starting to try out makeup or someone who likes trying new makeup products? If so, then this SmashBox Try It Kit would be great for them. It would give them the chance to try out a variety of products without your wallet having to suffer.
Travel Brush Set
This is good for girls that travel or those who just like to have a makeup touch-up here and there when they’re not a home. This set is travel friendly as it is travel size and so wouldn’t take up much space in a purse or suitcase.
Have a girly girl or a perfume lover on your hands? Then get them ‘Dot’, a highly raved Marc Jacobs perfume.
I know I don’t like using the same makeup bag over and over again, so add to her makeup bag collection. Get a makeup bag design that embodies her personality – there are just so many to choose from. You can check some out here or here.
Handbags can be really expensive, but the one above is a real steal as it looks so great for such a reasonable price. But, if you want to splurge on a handbag this season go ahead. In the end it’s all about what you feel comfortable with.
So these are all the gift ideas that I came up with for guys and girls. What do you think?
Which ones would you get or would like to receive?
Later everyone, I’ll talk to you in the next post.
Winter, winter, winter, it means so many things; the start of colder weather and the ending of the school term – both of which I’m excited for. And, winter also means that I can break out my favourite winter accessories.
Scarves and mittens!
I love these accessories for winter, they keep you warm and their stylish too. Winter could possibly be my favourite season of the year; I just love how cold it gets, even here in the Caribbean – although it doesn’t get THAT cold here. But, scarves and mittens at night time are definitely an option.
There are just so many types of scarves my favourite though is the infinity scarf, there are just so many ways that you can wear it and that’s good for me because I like to switch things up every now and again.
In my opinion though, mittens keep you way warmer than scarves do and they’re my favourite of the two. They can be so comfy, chic and even kind of corky at times.
So, what would you say are your favourite winter accessories?
Bye, I’ll talk to you in the next post.
This is my first ‘Haul’ post you guys!
It’s been a while since I’ve been shopping, I haven’t told you guys this yet but I’m actually in my last year of high school and the pressure is on, but it was about time that I restocked my hair products and so on Saturday I went shopping and got a little extra along the way.
I just bought some of the products that I usually get for my hair as ‘Organic Root Stimulator’ is one of my favourite hair brands. The products really help with my dry hair and breakage. I got a mousse, jojoba oil scalp moisturiser, a hair moisturiser and a conditioner that came with a shampoo sample.
I also got a nail polish from ‘GLAM’. When I saw the colour I couldn’t resist. The colour is actually very similar to one that I had in my ‘Winter Nails’ post from a few days ago and I’m not going to lie, as soon as I got home I just had to put it on! It has a good formula though it could’ve been better. If you put on multiple coats at a time without giving each coat time to dry completely, you’re gonna have hell in getting it to dry after making that mistake.
Last is the makeup bag, I’ve been meaning to get a new one for a while now. The on I had before was one of those flat ones and it was a bit too small for what I wanted to put in it. This one though is not too big, but it has plenty of space and it even has slots inside to hold makeup brushes. I’d prefer it if it didn’t have the handle at the top but oh well.
Now to go do the work that I’ve been putting off! 😦
Bye you guys, talk to you in the next post.
This is my first ‘Favourites’ post, so here we go.
KleanColor ‘Double Rainbow Splendor – Realism’ Palette
This palette comes with 10 neutral shimmery eyeshadow shades and 2 different coloured blushes. I don’t use the blushes in this palette as I’m not really a blush wearer, but they are two good shades as far as blush go.
Don’t let the varying shades of the eyeshadow fool you, not matter how dark some of them may look they all look like varying shades of a highlighter when applied and so that’s what I use them for – to highlight the inner corners of my eyes.
All the colours are easy to apply and last a good while throughout the day!
You can get the exact same palette here.
Degree ‘Motion Sense’
I think that the ‘Motion Sense’ collection is the newest line in Degree deodorants. To me it has a typical deodorant smell but it’s been really keeping me fresh since I started using it and at full size it lasts a pretty long time. It claimed to go on invisible and that’s so true – if you don’t over apply that is. Overall it’s one of the best deodorants I’ve used so far.
CoverGirl Lash Exact Waterproof Mascara
This mascara is outrageously defining and can keep a curl. It lasts a really long time and it’s waterproof, so no smudging after it’s dry! When it comes to mascara this one really gets the job done – and done right.
I wrote a more in depth review on this product in an earlier post here if you want to check it out.
St. Ives ‘Blemish Control Green Tea Scrub’
First of all I just have to comment on the smell of this. It smells so naturally refreshing. When I first used this I expected it to smell all chemical-y and what not, it didn’t in the slightest. It smells kind of like fresh lemon grass.
Any ways, let me stop obsessing over the smell and actually tell you about how well it works. The formula is a little grainy as this is a scrub so you get some exfoliating action there. It’s dermatologists tested, paraben-free and made 100% naturally derived exfoliants.
I’ll be honest with you, I don’t use it regularly because sometimes I just forget, but when I do use it my skin feels really smooth after and my face has been breakout free all month. I’d definitely repurchase another one once this one is finished.
White Rain ‘Sensations Energizing Citrus’ Hydrating Conditioner
Truth be told my hair can be very dry at times and it’s really thick and that can be a problem. Many combs have perished at the hands of my hair and this conditioner has contributed a lot to my efforts to get my hair hydrated and more manageable.
My hair feels silky with it on and after I rinse and let my hair air dry in some curlers it still feels awesome.
Hair Dryer: ELEVATE by Andis
I’m not really a fan of hair dryers or heat styling in general as my hair has quite a bit of issues with dryness all its own with out the added factor of a hair dryer etc. so I usually just avoid hair dryers most times, but this one I like. It’s my sister’s by the way.
It’s really powerful and it has a setting to make warm air come out instead of hot air. There’s also a setting for the use of cold air as well, I prefer this setting over the hot and warm ones.
White Rain ‘Sensations Energizing Citrus’ Hydrating Shampoo
Unlike its conditioning counterpart this shampoo is very drying and strips my hair of not only dirt but some of the oils that my hair really needs. This is just a product that I wouldn’t buy again.
Have you ever used any of them before?
What do you think of the products?
I’ll talk to you lovely people later,
