Christmas Gift Guide 2014: Fashionista

Hey everyone!
This is the fourth gift guide so far, and I think it might be my last! If you haven't seen the other gift guides I've done, you can click here, or you can click the "gift guide" tab in the right side bar! This has been my favorite one to make so far, and is for the fashionistas! As usual, this is completely shopapble, so click to purchase!



I love fashionistas because you can go crazy with the jewelry, shoes, and accessories. You can get unusual things that are out of the ordinary! The safest bet would be the earrings or sunglasses because they are the most neutral and I think that they're the easiest to wear. If you wanted to get something else, boots with sequins or zippers are really great for fashionistas and bags with various colors and decorations are great too!

So that's my gift guide for fashionistas! Let me know what you think of it in the comments! The actual last one will actually be on my other blog, and it'll be a home decor one!

Christmas Gift Guide 2014: Makeup

Hi guys!
It's time for the much awaited makeup gift guide! I kept it together and only included 12, but I feel like it'd work well for makeup enthusiasts and makeup newbies! As usual, it's shopable, so click on the image to purchase it!



Okay, so out of all of these I only own the Vice 3 palette, although I've tried some of the stila lip glazes and a tarte lipsurgance. If you're shopping for someone new to makeup, I think the blush sets, naked palette, or nail polish would be good because they are all staple products that everyone would use. For the makeup junkies, you can go for the brighter, bolder, crazier items that may seem unnecessary. So this would include the lip products, vice 3, eyeliners, and everything else! I like going for limited edition palettes that include all new products when shopping for someone with a lot of makeup so you avoid repeats, but also because limited edition palettes often have the cutest packaging ever!

So those are my makeup picks for Christmas! Let me know yours in the comments, and let me know what other types of gift guides you'd like to see!

InstaNatural Skincare Review

Hey everyone!
InstaNatural was super amazing and sent me three of their skincare products! I received the Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Youth Express Eye Gel, and Vitamin C Facial Toner. They're also sending me a few hair care products, and I'll review those once I receive them!




Hyaluronic Acid Serum
This is a serum that sounded amazing because hyaluronic is supposed to be really great for skin because it's can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. This serum also has green tea extract, vitamin C, vitamin E, and jojoba oil. I've been using this twice a day (morning and night) for around a week and I've been loving this! It leaves my skin smooth and absorbs really well without leaving a residue, oily, or sticky feeling. I only need to use three drops to cover my face and I feel like the bottle could last me a while! I can't vouch for the anti-aging powers of this, but I have acne prone teenage skin, and this works better than anything else for me!
Overall Thoughts: LOVE THIS!



This toner has Vitamin C, Witch Hazel, Aloe and more amazing, natural ingredients. It is supposed to clean and shrink pores and hydrate skin. I don't think that it necessarily cleans or shrinks my pores, but I like this toner. I really like the spray format because it's less wasteful than using a cotton pad, but I'm not a huge fan of the scent (it's very citrusy). Overall, my skin feels good when I'm using this toner and it's probably one of the gentler toners I've used, and if you have sensitive skin, this would be great!
Overall Thoughts: Love the product, not the scent


I used this product for a week, so I could give you my thoughts, but in all honesty it's not really relevant to me (as I'm still quite young), so I might give it to my mom instead. I can't tell you about the anti-aging, eye bag reducing, crows feet eliminating powers of this, but I can tell you about the formula! I love how this soaks in almost instantly and feels very light. It also has hyaluronic acid, so it's extremely moisturizing and it's very gentle. It is also scentless and it won't irritate your eye area at all!
Overall Thoughts: Great formulation, idk about the claims...

So a huge thank you to InstaNatural for sending me these products! I love them all and even though I'm going to gift the eye gel to my mom because it's better suited for her, everything was amazing! If you want to purchase these products, you can click here! Let me know what your favorite skincare products are in the comments, and don't forget to subscribe to this blog!

Christmas Gift Guide 2014: Athletes

Hi guys!
So this is my first gift guide post for a specific person! The other two were on shoes and bags, which you should totally check out as well, but this one is going to be a bit more specific! As usual, these are shopable, so click on the image to purchase it!




I have a few personal favorites on this collage. I love the whole bottom row because that tank top looks really cute and it's workout clothes that doesn't look like workout clothes, which is great for the lunchtime gym junkie! The second would be the pink fitbit flex. I have a flex and I wear it literally every single day and you can choose the band color to fit the person! I have a slate gray one, but I really want to get a teal one and a black one! I don't recommend going for shoes unless you know their size for sure, because they're really personal and can be a bit awkward to purchase because of size and fit. Normal clothes is good, I would just go higher end (like Lulu or Alo or Onzie) or bold with the colors so there's not too much overlap with what they'd already own. Lastly, fitbits are amazing! They came out with a few that have heart rate monitors, which I'm thinking about getting for myself, although I can't justify it quite yet as my Flex still works perfectly!

So those are my ideas for athletes! Just a final note, don't get this for someone that only occasionally works out or for an acquaintance because it can totally be taken in the "you should exercise more" way if it's to someone you don't know really well! My next gift guide will be on makeup, so come back to see that and leave ideas for future gift guide posts in the comments!

My New Bag!

Hey everyone!
I have been eyeing a bag at my work for a while now, and finally bought it because I got 30% off as a part of my employee discount! It's a really cool three compartment black hobo bag!



So this is the front! It has these short handles on it, but it also comes with a longer handle that you can attach to it if you wanted to wear it lower on the body. 



This is the back! It has a small zippered pocket that I'm probably gonna keep my phone in when I use it!



So this picture makes the bag look really odd, but when you unbutton it, there's three different compartments. The two outside ones are just really deep compartments (with no pockets within it), and would be really good for organization. 


And this is the middle pocket! When you unzip it there's two pockets on one side, and a larger zippered one on the other. It's not as deep as the two other compartments, but would be great to hold more valuable items!

So that's my new bag! I can't wait to use it because I'm absolutely in love with it! I don't really know what the name or brand of the bag is, so I can't link it for you guys :( but I'll keep searching for it! Also, let me know if you'd be interested in a what's in my bag video once I start using it more!
