Beauty Stocking Suffers

Beauty Stocking Stuffer Ideas

November 17, 2014

Beauty Stocking Suffers

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 

Eyes, lips, cheeks, face, body…There’s a little stocking stuffer for every girl in your life » perfect for mom, your besties, or your sister! I personally have tried all but one product above. That’s why I carefully chose these products for the fabulous gals in your life!

1| Benefit’s luminous highlighter:  This is my go-to for adding that soft glow on my face in the evening (date night, parties, dinner). Perfect for this time of the season too with all the festivities going on. Don’t worry, it has no glitter. It just highlights your features with a soft sheen.

2| My favorite eyeliner:  Mally knows how to do eyeliner! If you’ve given up on eyeliner like I did (before trying this one)… WAIT!! This Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Liner will convert you, honey! Gift this to your besties, they will ♥ you (even more)! This liner IS waterproof BUT, so creamy and easy to apply. And the colors are beautiful!

3| Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blush:  My favorite good-for-your-skin long-lasting blush! I have 5 beautiful clay blushes by Tarte (+ many more products from this line). It truly is long-wearing blush, formulated without any junk + has so many shades to choose from, great for any skin tone. That’s why this is another perfect stocking stuffer!

4| This eyeshadow palette ♥♥♥:  Urban Decay‘s Naked 3 Palette, is every beauty junkies favorite! What’s NOT to love? » it’s UD’s newest Naked palette (all are extremely popular BTW), it has 12 beautiful shades, it’s convenient, it has shimmer, glitter + matte shades – versatile going from day-to-night, + it just wears + looks good on!

5| EOS A Ray of Holiday Sunshine Rachel Roy 3 PK:  Who doesn’t love EOS? The cute spheres feature Rachel Roy’s signature wing design.
Of course, I love that EOS is 100% Natural, USDA-Certified Organic! This limited-edition pack makes a great stocking stuffer… or split them up!

6| Sugar Shine Lip Treatment: Fresh Sugar lip products are amazing! I’ve been a fan of their Sugar Lip Treatment for years! And now there’s Sugar Shine, Sugar Lips ‘big sister,’ as I like to say! She’s high-shine, which makes her perfect for the Holidays!!

7| Essie Winter Mini Nail Polish Collection:  I own 3 colors from this collection. My favorite for the season has to be ‘Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low.’ It’s gold and silver and sparkly! This mini collection is perfect to gift, so she can try them all! » (See ‘Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low’ on my nails here)

8| Winter Dreams Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter Duo (Limited Edition):  If you haven’t tried Josie Maran‘s Argan Oil products, you’re missing out on something truly luxurious! Her whipped body butter is the best organic moisturizer out there. Ultra hydration, non-greasy, + leaves your skin glowing! It is especially great for these winter months. Gift this duo, and she’ll know what I mean! Purchase the cult classic here.

9| NuFace Mini:  This at-home facial toning device is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand (hence, a stocking stuffer idea). This is the only product I haven’t tried. But I would say, this is a great gift for the gal who’s looking for a mini ‘face-lift!’ The NuFace mini is affordable, portable + has been known to really give results!

Hand Made Maternity Gowns & Children’s Boutique Clothing

May 13, 2014
{Handmade Maternity gowns, Maternity/newborn photo props, and Children’s Boutique
I’m so glad I found this shop on Etsy.com! I was looking for something ethereal and different to wear for my own Maternity photo shoot coming up & luckily, I came across Sew Trendy Accessories!
The dress pictured above, (open front to show of belly) is similar to the one I chose. I received it already (delivery was easy and fast).
In person the gown is beautiful & the material is so soft. I’m very happy with it. I highly recommend
checking out her site. There are many choices of gowns, props, and children’s clothing to choose from. Most gowns, you have the option in picking an open front dress; or if you feel the dress is too sheer, you may chose to add an extra layer of dress.
Happy Shopping!

SPF + Anti-aging Hybrid Products

May 07, 2014

I’m so happy now that the beauty industry has merged several skin care products into one! For example, the BB creams, CC creams, SPF’s with anti-aging ingredients. All of these products have more than one benefit for our skin. These help us to Protect, Conceal, Repair and Prime our skin for the day ahead.
Less steps for us ladies!
I would like to share 2 products with you:
Supergoop! Anti-Aging City Sunscreen Serum, and Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream

Supergoop! is a company dedicated only to sun protection and anti-aging. Using good-for-you ingredients, Free from Parabens, Synthetic Fragrance and Oxybenzone.

This Sunscreen serum has customer top rated reviews across the board!  
Supergoop! Has been featured in publications such as, New Beauty, SHAPE, Parents, SELF, Vanity Fair, VOGUE and much more!
What’s so great about this light-weight serum?
Well, how many SPF’s out there do you know of are actually serums?!
It’s light-weight, helps to battle the signs of aging, protects your skin from harmful UV damage and it readies your skin for the rest of your long day.
Here’s the description mentioned on the Supergoop! website:
What makes this “Goop” Super
-Vitamins E and B5 aid nutrient absorption and cell renewal
-Hydrovotin 24 stimulates the skin’s natural moisturizing agent so skin stays hydrated without the need of a heavy cream
This lightweight serum is perfect for all skin types.
On http://www.supergoop.com  you can find a selection of lip balms, eye cream, lotions and more! 
Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream is an anti-aging treatment, sunscreen, complexion corrector, moisturizer AND tint all in one. I personally own and love this CC cream. I just rub this on in the morning, and usually, on my regular day it’s all I need. Because of the tint in this product it helps to “correct” your complexion. I love knowing that in ONE product I have all I need for the day! What makes this CC cream different?
It has Arbutin and Camu Camu.
Camu Camu, is an Amazonian super fruit that has 30 TIMES MORE vitamin C than an orange. Vitamin C is essential for your skin. It helps improve collagen production in order to create more beautiful vibrant, firmer skin. It also helps to protect you from further skin damage. Arbutin helps to even out your skin tone- it has skin lightening properties. The wonderful tint corrects your complexion right away. Hiding some imperfections so you can just use this if you like, or add your foundation/powder atop. Finally, the SPF helps fight against future damage and keeps your skin looking beautiful!
Available at Sephora, QVC.com and http://www.peterthomasroth.com
Now that summer is approaching, take care of your skin + try some of these products out!
