Happy December 7th!

Today’s gift guide includes many beautiful goodies!


Nail Polishes from Essence and Essie are so amazing and affordable and perfect for stocking stuffers.

Fantastic lip products like the lovely LIPSIES from Annabelle Cosmetics Essence Lip glosses and EOS Lip balms make great stocking stuffers!

The calendar “KEEP CALM AND HAVE A CUPCAKE” is from the talented and amazing Jenny Holiday she is known for her “Everyday is A Holiday” website and blog. I don’t think she has that journal anymore but she has many more other pieces of art that are truly beautiful! Very cute and whimsical! You should check out her site. She is fantastic! I’ve been following her art and blog for years.

 Bath and Body has amazing stocking stuffers that are affordable and lovely for the holidays. I also recommend the lovely chocolate face masks for stocking stuffers. The chocolate masks are amazing for anyone! They are from “My Seventh Heaven”

If you know someone who loves scrapbooks and journaling they will love the SMASH it concept. Truly amazing and you should check it out because I have 3 SMASH it books and I love them! You can also always buy gift cards!  Gift cards make amazing gifts!

Thank you so much!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Get Ready Beauty Essentials


I wanted to share with you a few things that I use when I get ready. These are some of my  beauty essentials that I can’t live without. I always use my makeup brushes and can’t function without them.  Here are the only ones I have for now but my collection is about to get bigger soon! I’m excited and waiting anxiously for some packages to arrive. I bought some new brushes and also I won a couple which I can’t wait to share with you!   

I always use a primer before applying my makeup and I always use a finishing spray. I highly recommend these two and I also recommend trying out a primer and finishing spray. Your makeup will look more radiant, the makeup application will be smoother and your makeup will last longer during the day.

Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix

and  SMASHBOX Photo Finish Primer

  I always use the following tools. I love my lip brush from Sephora. I also have an eyebrow brush. I totally need a new one. And tweezers for unwanted pesky hair. I totally need to add a beauty blender to this list. I also use an eyelash curler. 

Before putting on any lipstick or lipgloss I moisturize my lips with Annabelle Lipsies. This cupcake one is so good!

I also use wipes to correct or clean my makeup along the way. I use wipes to take off the majority of my makeup at the end of the day as well.  Oh I forgot to mention the first thing I do is put on Music!  I always get ready with music! Here I have Selah Sue’s CD. I really love her sound, style and voice.

These are all essentials for getting ready. I need a few more things to add to my list… Like a beauty blender!
