GIFT IDEAS 2018 + IG VIDEO
Yesteryday [Sunday] I did an IG story sharing around 12 gift ideas at a variety of price points. I included one that is $15 and a watch that is over $3,000. I actually based the gifts on things I get the most compliments on or things that are holy grail/favorites. I know that gift giving is really challenging – you want to stay under a certain price point OR you feel like that friend/family member ‘has it all’. My family jokes that I’m the hardest to shop for – and in all reality, the items I am mentioning are all things I’d love to receive!
Today I thought I’d quickly recap that IG story video and break it all down so you have shade names, sizes, and all. Also, I had a few requests for other gift guides – like for men – so I wanted to give you all that I have been doing weekly gift guides for a few weeks now. They can all be found under the HOLIDAY tab of my menu – here’s a Gift Guide Under $50, and another popular one HERE.
GIFT IDEAS FROM IG STORIES RECAPPED
#1. RED SWEATPANTS [$45]: This was not in my IG stories as an idea BUT – you guys – these pants are AMAZING. I am a sucker for comfy sweatpants. The kind that are crazy soft, have a cute jogger fit so they remain cute and flattering, but are so comfy. I just got the red pair in the photo above last week and I am LIVING in them. I got a medium – just because I always size up during pregnancy but the medium was a little big – but in a good way. They are comfortable. If you want to flatter your figure go down a size or stick with your regular size. Also, I tend to wear mine around the house with a v-neck tee [this is my fave] and also just oversized sweatshirts + house slippers.
#2. LEOPARD PRINT SLOUCHIE BEANIE [$15]: A few years ago I found this beanie and I wore it like crazy! I linked it on my Instagram back then and it sold out in a few hours. And any time it came back in stock it sold out again so quickly. It is the cutest beanie – and for $15?! Luckily, they re-stock it each fall and it is back again so I had to share.
#3. EAR CRAWLERS [$45]: I’m usually a hoop girl but THESEEEEEE! Oh – em- gee! These are so good and they have that edgy, yet still classy look. I think it’s hard wear these without looking more edgy but these are the perfect style. I haven’t worn hoops at all since I got these!
#4. CHARLOTTE TILBURY LIPSTICK [$34]: The two shades I wear the most are KIM KW and NUDE KATE. The KIMKW is my holy-grail and has been for years. Literally any time I wear this people started asking “what is lip colors is that?” it never fails. The formula is super creamy & pigmented – but has such a soft, flattering look to it.
#5. CHARLOTTE TILBURY LIP LINER [$22]: So the shade PILLOW TALK used to my favorite but about 6mos ago I started
#6. URBAN DECAY LIP GLOSS [$17 – on sale today!]: The shade I like the best is ‘Midnight cowgirl’ but it appears to be sold out everywhere right now.
#7. MICHELE WATCH: My first luxury watch purchased was a Michele Diamond Deco about 5 years ago. Since then, I’ve purchased a couple more – because they are so gorgeous and are amazing quality.
#8. NIXON WATCH: I’ve had this watch for a few years now and I never grow tired of it – ever! I love the black face and I wear it a TON during the fall and winter months. I love navy & black faces on watches and this is one of my favorites – and it is on sale!
#9. ROSE 31 PERFUME: My holy grail perfume – this stuff is so good!! It wears for DAYS!! It’s not like a typical perfume that wears off after a few hours or a day – this one lingers for days. Taylor Swift & J.Lo both use the Santal 33 version of this – which is just a fun fact! I didn’t like that one as much as I did the Rose 31.
#10. PARFUMS DE MARLY DELINA: Similar to ^^ the one above, this wears forever and oh-em-gee – both are major compliment getters. I always get stopped when I wear this one because it smells so good. I recently got used to the smell so I don’t smell it on myself as much but my mom had it on and today and I was like “wait what are you wearing????” and she goes “the pink bottle” and it hit me that I am just used to it. It smells so so good and sticks to you, your hair, and clothing.
#11. CHAIN/CHOCKER NECKLACE: I’m a layering necklace lover- but I have to admit that Lana Jewelry is my FAVE. It is a little pricy but they are amazing quality and I absolutely adore them. I actually just purchased this chocker because I love the way it looks layered with everything else. It has a sparkle to it – making it easy to recognize as Lana! This piece is great & I wear it alone quite a bit too.
#12. LASH SERUM [$150]: This is the serum I used for years and years before eyelash extensions – but I still used it while getting extensions on & off. I recently purchased this exact one because it is the same price as buying one bottle – but you get an extra!
#13. TRAVEL SIZE LIGHT-UP MIRROR [$80]: This mirror is 4″ and I keep it in my make-up bag at all times. It is great for travel and even at home when you need to get a good close up view of your eye shadow/liner – not sure if that even makes sense but I always use it to do my eye shadow! It lights up and is magnified so you get a good, close up view. Also, I get a lot of questions about the vanity mirrors I use and I reviewed this HERE and they are also really great.
