The Season of Giving

Something I pride myself over is being an amazing gift giver.

All year long I listen and hear what my friends and family need or want. I always manage to read their mind and give them exactly what they wanted. Seeing their face light up with excitement and joy is something that warms my heart.

I am a giver, who manages to put other before me. So when Christmas comes I really do my research and see what options I have. I try to see where I can get the best deals for a reasonable price.

I thought that today would be a great day to share with you so ideas and great gift options I found. Here are some options I found if you are looking for a gift for a friend, girlfriend or female co-worker.

July Sephora Play Review

 

img_4798

This months Play theme was Effortless. If summer could pick beauty products it would choose everything that was in this months bag. They had so many goodies that I had no idea what I want to try out first. My mind was completely blown away when I saw the beautyblender blotterazzi. Automatically I thought this is going to be a good Play bag.

1.NEST Citrine:

If you love NEST perfume as much as I do then you got to get this one. I fell head over heels for the perfume! It smells so lovely and light. This fragrance is the perfect blend for what I am looking for. It’s sexy, dewy, and fresh, and still shows up on my skin. Every whiff was utter bliss, I found myself sniffing my waist throughout the day.

 

2.beautyblender blotterazzi:

With the one beauty blotter I received, I also got a small sample of the blendercleanser in a subscription box. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. I’m heading to Sephora after work today to pick up some more so I can have them at home and at work. It absorbs oil without smudging my makeup around. It also fits perfectly into nooks around my nose, where you’d usually have to smush a blotting paper and mess up your foundation. Love, love, love this thing.

 

3.Ouai Wave Spray:

I’m not a huge fans of the Kardashians but I am a Chrissy Teigen fan. Jen Atkin is the founder and creator of Ouai, she is a hairstylist to many A list celebrities. So when I saw her wave spray I couldn’t help but squeal. The wave spray is amazing! It smells so good and gives my frizzy/wavy/curly hair some hold and keeps the poofiness to a minimum. It also left my hair feeling manageable, not brittle like some salt sprays.

 

4.Smashbox Photo Finish Oil Free Foundation Primer Pore Minimizing:

Since I have oily skin, I have tried many primers that helped control it. After trying several out I always came back to this one. I discovered it when a former Ulta employee told me that this one was by far better than Porefessional by Benefit. When she said that I had to try it immediately. I can honestly say that it did work some amazing blur miracles. I love that it helps control my oil production and minimizes my pores.

 

5.Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer:

I ADORE this bronzer. The color is great, goes on light which is perfect for building up however deep a bronze you’re looking for. Great for my medium/olive complexion and smells like chocolate!

 

6.First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser With Red Clay:

The beginning of this summer was pure hell. I recently got my acne under control from an antibiotic that was prescribed to me. My skin became significantly clearer, to the point where I didn’t need make up. I would have the occasional breakout but when summer came my skin went crazy. I thank the heavens that I got a chance to try this out and control it. I had always heard that this brand created skin miracles. So of course when I tried it I noticed a big difference. The redness went down along with the size of them. It turned an outbreak to a controlled situation. By the next morning there were already some that disappeared.
