toileEach Christmas eve, my favorite gift to open up is a new pair of comfy pajamas.  It’s a tradition in our house that everyone gets a new set of pajamas.  This year, I was thrilled to get to try out Bedhead Pajamas.  There are selections for every member of the family.  I am loving these adorable and super cozy cotton black vintage toile pjs.  They are so cute!  I also love their nightgowns available in fun prints and colors.  The fabric is luxuriously soft and the perfect weight for sleeping and lounging around. I highly recommend them!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

J Hills Glass necklaceI love the gorgeous glass jewelry from JHillsGlassArt from Etsy.  Truly each piece is unique and a piece of art to be worn.  You will be blown away by the high quality and beauty of these pieces.  So many to choose from, you will have a difficult time picking just the right one.  These pendants are so intricate and colorful and will be loved forever.

This unusual handcrafted mango wood  bracelet  is pretty and a great statement piece.  The Indonesian makers of the bracelet are able to feed their communities with the proceeds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

instrumental beautyKeep your skin glowing everyday with the Instrumental Beauty sonic facial brush.  I use this everyday to wash my skin, as it gently removes dirt, oil, and impurities while exfoliating my face and neck.  It’s a gift that will get used every day!

 

 

 

 

pur-lisseGive the gift of gorgeous skin with Pur-lisse.  (You can use it in conjunction with the sonic brush!) This skin care line is incredible. Silky smooth and light, the products combine ancient Chinese beauty rituals with current French technology to create an amazing array of beauty products you won’t want to live without.  The essential daily moisturizer with sfp 30 is my new favorite and a must-have for dry winter skin.

 

paraffinWinter can do a number on your feet. So give a gift to pamper her–a HoMedics ParaSpa Plus paraffin bath.  This at-home appliance is the best!  Simply heat the paraffin wax in the spa and then dip your hands and feet when ready.  The luxurious warm wax will soften even the most most weathered hands and feet.  A great way to spend an evening at home, relaxing and giving yourself a mani/pedi.  When you are done using the spa, paint your nails with some festive holiday colors from CND.  Their Vinylux weekly polish is beautiful and lasts! cnd

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6th Sense Professional Flat IronI don’t know about you, but winter kills my hair!  My naturally curly hair loses a lot of it’s wave in the winter months, making it difficult to style.  So, I love to straighten my hair in the winter.  But not all straighteners are created equal!  I am loving the 6th Sense Styling Technology FH-1 Professional Styler!  This is the best straightener I have used!  30 seconds to heat up, LED temperature indicators, and microchip heat controls makes this a fantastic iron.  The ceramic plates do an excellent job with your hair, leaving your hair silky smooth and straight, just how you want it to be. It really looks very professional and since there are heat sensors, it works well on fine and thick hair alike without frying your hair.  Also in this kit comes a mini styler and heat resistant carrying case.  Bonus!  I highly recommend this iron!

 

clean-fragrance_main_06112014Now that you’re all dolled up with gorgeous hair, skin, and nails, it’s time to finish off by spritzing some CLEAN fragrance on! These lovely layering scents are fresh and smell oh-so-good!  You can customize your scent by experimenting with the combinations of air, cool cotton, warm cotton, fresh laundry, and rain, or you can wear them on their own. Available in spray or rollerballs, this is a great gift for the holidays! clean rollerball

lands endYou will want to make sure you stay nice and toasty this winter while out enjoying time outdoors.  Lands’ End has you covered with their fabulous coats and jackets. I am loving their  Women’s 800 Fill Power Packable Down Jacket.  Light as a feather, but seriously warm, this jacket is just perfect for winter.  I think the dark rust shimmer is so pretty!
