BEST BEAUTY GIFT GUIDE 2019

Gifting beauty products is so fun, I have so many options I wanted to share with you all. Here are several options for your sisters, friends or even co- workers! I am sharing some of my fav skincare items, makeup and other great products.

Best Beauty Gift Guide 2019

  1. Dr. Dennis Gross peel pads are an investment but they are worth it. I use peel pads at least 2 times a week to exfoliate my skin and keep it glowing.
  2. The perfect gift for someone who loves a low maintenance trick on keeping your face youthful! This Uplift massaging beauty roller is something I use weekly while I sit and watch TV. It really is something you do not need to put effort into.
  3. Buxon lip sets are my go- to on during the work week and on the weekends. This would be the perfect set for your GF, step sisters, co- worker or heck for yourself 😉
  4. I USE THIS 5/7 DAYS of the week! The colors are perfect for any outfit and the applications is seamless. This Naked3 palette is hands down my fav!
  5. SUMMER FRIDAYS= DEWY skin goodness! I have been using this nightly, no need to wash it off until the morning. You will thank me later!
  6. Talk about throwback! This cute Caboodle is to die for, this would be the perfect gift for the girl that doesn’t know what to do with all her makeup! I mean how cute is the ROSE GOLD.
  7. FRANNY- OH how I love my mini fridge– I keep all things from masks, eye patches, teeth whiting gel and my ice roller in this bad boy!
  8. Eyeshadow brushes – everyone could use a fresh new set, let’s be honest!
  9. Blendy blend- ALERT these are under $10 and they rock my socks off. Okay- they aren’t like Sephora blenders if I am being honest but hey they do the job and you can’t beat the price!
  10. Scrunchies are trending and these ones are great to sleep in without damaging your hair.
  11. Number 1 on my Christmas list this Starry eyes to Hypnotize eyeshadow palette is to die for. This combination of colors are stunning.
  12. Another item on my list is this blender dryer– it seems practical and cute to put in our new master bathroom.
  13. DAMN GIRL– I have been loving this mascara lately! If you are looking to replace yours or try a new one!

Happy shopping for those beauty lovers- see below even more options to shop from!

Hostess With The Mostest- Throwing a game day party can be fun and easy!


Let’s get real here if you find me at a football party it is most likely for the drinks and food! Don’t get me wrong I love rooting for the teams but my shirt says it all “I just hope both teams have fun!” I enjoy game days and the excuse to get together with friends to indulge in some tailgating foods.

I am partnering up with Joia Spirit to share with you how to be the hostess with the mostest during the football season and how you don’t need a lot to throw a successful gathering.

VARIETY OF FOOD IS KEY
When it comes to setting out the perfect food, I always go with making one main appetizer, dips, snacks and one main attraction dish (hence the gorgeous graze board created by one of my favorite local gals from @grazingkc) to compliment all the colors we had going on.

My go to- appetizer is Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Bacon. Not only is it an affordable app but super easy to whip together and a crowd pleaser! You can always find me eating the food 🙂

  • Goat Cheese
  • Dates
  • Bacon
  • Toothpicks

1. Preheat the oven to 420 degrees
2. Split the date in half
3. Stuff date with goat cheese
4. Cut bacon in half- wrap each date with a piece of half bacon
5. Place toothpick in middle of date to hold placement of bacon
6. Pop in the oven for 20 minutes

DECOR
Football season = Fall season! When I have people come over to my house for gatherings I want the house to be welcoming, minimal decor and cozy. I picked up some cute football themed cups, popcorn holders and some fall signs!
