Heyyyy guys! This is the second installment of my 5-part blog: My Christmas Wish List / Gift Ideas:
This is one of my all time favourite scent – L’Occitane’s version of Green Tea. Retails for $54 on the L’Occitane website, this I would say is better than Elizabeth Arden. It has a fresh scent that is perfect for both warm and cold weather. Something about the scent that reminds me of the cross between the fresh tropical beaches of the Philippines and the cold winters of Canada. Call me weird but that’s how I am reminded when I sprits this. And connected to this, I usually buy another scent from the same store:
This is the other scent I love. Next to the Green Tea from L’Occitane, this Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette retails for $54 (same as the Green Tea) and I don’t know why but whenever I pick up a bottle of Green Tea, I need to get a Cherry Blossom as well and I find myself alternating the two. On my holidays and out of town / country vacations, I can do away with just these two on my fragrance pocket!
Something to give to your make up lover friends that you really know well. Benefit allows you to customize your own make up kit. It comes with one face, cheek / blush and eye products, a gift and a super adorable make up case! As always there will be two free samples that you can pick before you check out. For $79, I think this is a reasonable price since the full-sized benefit products normally range from $25-$50. This is only to give to people you really know I guess so you can pick the right shade for them, as well as the right make up option.
This monthly Julep Maven Subscription is a fun way to give your girl friend the perfect gift. Both nail art and make up lovers will enjoy this. Depending on their personality(ies) / likes, Julep.com has a quiz like other subscription boxes to gage if you are more of a make up or a nail girl or both. For $20 a month, this is a good option for gifting. You can either pass or buy and you have 5 style options each month. Keep some for yourself and some for your girl friends on some occasions or give them a whole year’s worth! Something to surprise your loved ones every month until the next Christmas 🙂
