Gifts for the Beauty Guru in Your Life

November 11, 2018

In my last post, you got to see what I wanted, now I'm here to show you what all the beauty/makeup/skincare loving people in your life want. I would proclaim myself a bit of a beauty aficionado myself and every item on this list is totally something they'll love if they don't already!


This is perfect for any girl who loves to travel, or is tight on space for storing their collection. Bonus: It comes with a brush roll for easy packing.



I got one of these about a month ago and it has totally changed my skincare. It does such a better job at cleaning than your hands could ever do, no matter how many times you wash. Don't believe me? Look at all the make up that's left on the brush after using it. This one connects to an app on your phone to learn more about your skin and lifestyle to get the most out of each clean



Jade rollers are great for reducing inflammation and just overall relaxation. Stick it in the fridge, throw on some moisturizer or and oil and get rolling.



This super versatile gloss can be layered over lipsticks or worn on it's own. It's perfect for a gal on the go to throw in her bag wherever she goes



It seems like everyone and their mother is talking about Tatcha lately and for good reason. Make sure whoever you're buying for is moisturized and glowing all winter long with their water cream



Too Faced is notorious for their amazing scented products and this one does not disappoint. The gingerbread scent will leave them remembering the holiday (and the awesome person who gifted it) every time they pick it up.



This is one of my favorite scents and the gift set is such a good value, not to mention the color of the packaging is super cute



Great makeup needs great base. This mask can help make sure their skin is as smooth as can be so their natural beauty can shine through 



Another skin care line every has been gushing over is Drunk Elephant. This set can let the recipient of your awesome gift try out a little bit of all the favorites.



This is one I've unfortunately never had the chance to try but I've hear it dries hair in no time. Perfect for a busy girl who needs to make sure her tresses are always on point



Another styling favorite of bloggers everywhere. You can change out the top for curls and waves of all shapes and sizes. Bonus: It's on sale right now



While on the pricier side for a mud mask, Glam Glow leaves your skin feeling great and your pores feeling uber clean. Pick up the travel size if you can't splurge on the full size. A little goes a long way with this 



This is probably one of Morphe's most popular collaborations. The palette is so versatile, who ever you give it to can create almost any look they want with it. It's also great for someone just getting into makeup or wants a smaller collection

If you guys read my last post you would know I am in full holiday mode.(I know it's still fall and I'm not over here praying for snow don't worry) Last year I did another What I Want for Christmas post and my uncle actually got me a few things off of it. Yes I know that's kind of the point of these, but usually I tell my mom what I want and then add in a few different things I don't mention in these kinds of posts so is was funny seeing a few of them as gifts last year.

 I have 4, yes 4, gift guides going up next week so that you can make your list and check it twice before saving on all the awesome Black Friday sales this year. I'll be sharing all the sales I can find on my Instagram and saving them in a highlight so make sure you're following my Instagram to check those out.

Getting Ready for the Holidays with Custom Holiday Cards with Basic Invites

November 3, 2018

This post is sponsored by Basic Invites. All opinions are my own

Now that Halloween is over I am in full holiday season mode #sorrynotsorry. 
My friends and I are having our first (hopefully) annual Friendsgiving this year. Every great party needs a great invitation so I was so excited when Basic Invites reached out to me about featuring some of their holiday products.

Full transparency guys, I had actually never heard of the company before so I was a little hesitant to agree, but after checking out their site and falling in love with all the beautiful, and affordable, designs they had I knew I just needed to share them with you guys. 

I had the opportunity to pick out some product to talk about and guys they came out so great! They have every type of invitation or business car you could think of, from their cool christmas cards to their custom business holiday cards, like seriously have you ever heard of someone offering holiday business cards!? Basic Invites has sooo many different color options too, you'll find the perfect colors for every occasion.  
For our Friendsgiving invite I wanted to go for that cute rustic look because I think that it's such a cute theme for Thanksgiving (side note: I also made an invite before they approached me that was friends themed which is equally as cute and I'll be emailing to people who wont appreciate a mailed invite as much. Let me know in a comment below if you'd like to see how I did it!) I found the perfect invite over on their site, buttt I wasn't crazy about the default color. Since pretty much everything about the items are customizable,  I was able to chose from their 180 different color selections to find just the perfect one.  To compliment my not perfect invite, I was able to choose from their 40 different envelope colors so that your basic white envelope didn't kill the wonderfully rustic vibe.
There were so many great options to choose from, over 500 to be exact, it was hard to pick just one, like their foil cards that you can get in silver, gold and even rose gold or their insanely cool watercolor holiday cards
I also (finally) got some business cards and they came out so amazing! I was struggling to pick from 2 designs but Basic Invites will send you custom samples, so you can try a few before your order the rest of your stationary. I had never hear of or seen clear business cards before but they have officially changed my life and I think I need to order 100 more. If you want to stand out from other basic cards, I highly recommend you go check them out. Stock up for the holiday season before it's too late.

I want to say another huge thank you to Basic Invites for working with me and I hope you guys can go check them out just in time for all their holiday card needs. My products got here in about a week so don't wait until last minute!
