Happy Monday! Christmas is getting closer & closer. Have you done all your shopping? Better yet, have you even started? Whether you’re almost done or waiting to get started, I’m kicking off the week with another awesome Gift Guide. If you’ve been following PartyOverHair.com, you’ll be familiar with Shay Lynn of EverythingBLB.com as she would occasionally share her awesome taste in fashion with us here on the blog. Today she’s going to share some of the things on her To Gift & To Get List!
Carol’s Daughter Transitioning 1-2-3 Kit, $40
These days the only hair products I use are during the washing/conditioning process. I’m pretty much done with gels and creams as I hate build up and having to wash more hair more often. It also weighs my hair down which I loathe. Although I’m not technically transitioning, my interest was piqued by Carol’s Daughter Transitioning 1-2-3 Kit. It claims to prevent build up, shedding and breaking which is perfect for anyone during any stage. I love the fact that it pays special attention to the scalp as a clear scalp is really great for promoting hair growth. Also the “kit” style packaging just makes it a cute gift idea!
Bobbi’s Skincare Favorites Set, $104
Keeping in the spirit of kits, I would love the Bobbi’s Skincare Favorites Set from Bobbi Brown. I went to the Bobbi Brown counter to get matched for foundation and my face loved the skincare products the makeup artist used beforehand. I am most looking forward to trying the hydrating eye cream. Black isn’t supposed to crack but a little assistance never hurt anyone!
Maybeline’s Color Elixir by ColorSensational, $8.99
I’m a sucker for a great stocking suffer! My mom always spoiled me with the best stockings. In order to fill someone’s stocking you have to know about all “the little things” that make them happy. Lately I’ve really been into building on my lip collection. While I have shied away from lipgloss (the older I get, the more I adore matte lip color) I recently discovered the perfect gloss. Maybeline’s Color Elixir by ColorSensational is amaaazing! Awesome vibrant colors, smooth texture, and lasting wear. So I’d love a few more tubes for the holidays. I have my eyes on Caviar Couture, Amethyst Potion, and Intoxicating Spice. While there are some softer options, I feel these deep pigments will play well with winter white fashion. Just imagine a bad cream suit paired with a deep purple lip… Yes!
HP Google Chromebook 11, $279
I always like to have a gadget on my wish list. These are gifts that you continue to use even after you’ve turned that body wash and candle gift basket into a bathroom decoration! I’m really interested in HP’s new Google Chromebook 11. The style is reminiscent of the older white MacBook, which is not very original but does give me that tingly feeling I got from my first laptop! I’m a huge fan of Google’s apps because I can access them (and all my work & settings) no matter what computer I’m using. So this cute and simple to use device would be perfect for some of the small tasks I have on the go each day.
Curl Easy Pro Brush by Newave, $5.99 at Sally’s
I really admire women who are into the pinup girl, rockabiliy and burlesque cultures. Their unique but similar styles really have me hooked. One hair style I would love to try is victory rolls. The issue is trying to refrain from putting too much product in my hair (something I’m trying for growth) so the curling iron + hair spray combo is not very attractive to me. I read a tip online that stated using the Curl Easy Pro Brush by Newave is a great way to achieve victory rolls without the extra hassle. So I would love a few of these funky looking brushes to try out some great pin up styles. They run so cheap that even if it didn’t work out, I wouldn’t feel shorted. Plus, their actual use is for blow outs so I’m sure I could make good eventually!
Kate Spade Cedar Street Animal Maise, SALE $208
I love everything about Kate Spade. Whether you need something fun, romantic or business chic, Kate Spade has it. I even saw Kate Spade flatware in Macy’s (but I’ll save that for when I’m married or something..). Any who, my wish list includes the Cedar Street Animal Maise. This bag has the elements I adore; a great print, cross body strap, and a fun inner lining. Hopefully I’m on the nice list and this beautiful bag will be waiting under the tree for me!
