2014 Holiday Gift Guide!

Hi everyone! It's time for my annual Holiday Gift Guide! I have such a blast preparing this guide every year- selecting beautiful, fun products that make fantastic gifts to friends, family... or yourself! I've gone back to basics this year with a gift guide focused mostly on beauty. I have some fantastic products to show you ranging from luxe makeup to sumptuous bath and body products to delectable fragrances! 
Anna Sui La Vie De Boheme Fragrance Gift Set: 
Featuring an EDT, Shower Gel, and Body Lotion in the exotic La Vie De Boheme Fragrance, this beautifully-designed set would make an amazing gift for the fragrance lover. The Art Nouveau inspired packaging is just wonderful. I think this lovely little set would make an amazing hostess gift at a holiday party, too! Available at

Chamilia "I Love You to Death" Bead: 
European-style charm bracelets are all the rage and are so fun to personalize! Chamilia makes such wonderful, high quality charms... and this little skull is no exception! I love the heart-shaped eyes and Swarovski details. Gorgeous stocking stuffer. 

LUSH Winter Garden Gift Set: 
Nobody does holiday gifts like LUSH! Every year they top themselves with gorgeous gifts at a great value. The Winter Garden set is housed in a stunning ball-shaped box that you can even hang on a tree! It is stuffed with luxuriously-scented goodies like Rose Jam Shower Gel and the AMAZING, all-purpose Ultrabalm. Available at

Elizabeth Arden UNTOLD Absolu
A gorgeous, multi-faceted fragrance in a gorgeous, multi-faceted bottle! Like every woman, this fragrance has many dimensions. Warm and alluring, with floral absolutes and notes of red plum, black raspberry, and an amber base. It is a modern, universally-flattering scent. A fantastic gift for any lady.

Farmhouse Fresh Body Milks 
Farmhouse Fresh makes some of the best-smelling goodies this side of Texas! Their awesome body milks are now available in these little tubes- the perfect size for stocking stuffers! They smell so good you'll want to spread them on toast (please don't though!!). I especially like the Backcountry Caramel scent but trust me, you're going to want all of these! Available at 

LaVanila Laboratories Mini Rollerball Fragrance Collection

I love the gift sets that come out around the holidays! Sets like this one from LaVanila give you the chance to explore a brand at a great price. I love all of LaVanila's fragrances, and this set gives you the whole experience.. from Vanilla Coconut to Vanilla Grapefruit!

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pro's Picks Lip Tar Test Tube Set
The makeup lover in your life NEEDS this set from OCC! If they are new to the brand, they'll appreciate this intro into the world of Lip Tar. If they're an OCC addict like me, they'll appreciate the range and portability of this amazing Lip Tar set. The little tubes are adorable, too! Available at 

Laura Mercier Into the Wild Lookbook Collection
This set from Laura Mercier is just... incredible. What a luxurious gift! It has everything you need, and would make an amazing travel makeup kit. It has gorgeous shadows, blushes, liners, everything! Laura Mercier always puts out beautiful products for the holidays but this one takes the cake. They've fit so much beauty into this one little kit!

Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray
Skindinavia's Makeup Primer Spray makes a unique, practical stocking stuffer. Even seasoned beauty-holics may not yet have this product in their arsenal.. but once they get it, they'll wonder how they ever lived without it! It keeps makeup from slipping, sliding, and sweating off.. leaving your face party-perfect for each holiday shindig!
