Pearlesque Box | January 2018 Honua Hawaiian Skincare

It feels a bit odd typing 2018, but it's a mere days way. Another year over, but just maybe, yours was filled with great skincare? Not to be all 'in your face-y' but mine was, partly thanks to Pearlesque Box.

Ringing in a Glam new Year | Hard Candy NYE 2018

::: press sample :::

A happiest of holidays, blog fans! I hope everyone has been enjoying the season. I've been cuddled up with books and chocolate (jolabokaflod style) but my quiet days will soon end as the frivolities of New Years are on their way. As I've said about the holidays in general, it's the season to ramp up glitter adornment. But, if there ever was an evening to really imbibe in the glitzy stuff, it's New Years. Hard Candy is all about shimmer, glitter, metallics, and just about anything shiny, making them a perfect go-to should you need more glam in your makeup game.

I know, it's down to the wire, but just in case you still need a bit of shopping inspiration, I've got some super adorable giftables from The Body Shop. A heaping box of goodies arrived Tuesday and I found myself saying "awww!" or "it's so cute!" to just about everything I discovered. Even better than the selection, is the fact that TBS offers something for literally every price point.

The 'big day' is so close, but I keep finding holiday items at my door and in my mail box. To say there is little time to waste is an understatement, so let's get right into it. Quo is ringing in the holidays with a huge offering of holiday products. Like, so many I'll be featuring more on my Instagram to keep this from being too behemoth a post. Anyway, they're offering gift sets of all sizes including a few palettes worthy of space under the tree.

Holiday Lip Lovin' | eos for Everyone

Can you truly ever have too much lip balm? I don't know that you can. Even when I think I'm at my max, one more always seems like a good idea. I'd like to think everyone else has my sensibilities when it comes to balm too. I mean, everyone has lips and nobody wants dry ones, so it just works, right? Anyway, I say a little lip balm makes a great stocking stuffer or add on to another gift. eos just happens to have some delicious options for the holidays (think vanilla bean, peppermint mocha, pumpkin spice...)

Glam Celebration | Lise Watier Holiday 2017 Collection

::: press sample :::

There has been a lot of glitter talk around these parts the past few days and I've got to say there is going to be a little bit more. Although, it does take on a different form with the limited edition Glam Celebration Collection from Lise Watier, with glittering packaging (that is oh-so enticing) and the most stunning metallic pigments. Add a selection of gorgeous red lipsticks and a smokey palette and it's holiday glitz gone sophisticated in the best ways.

Sparkle & Shine | Too Faced Glitter Bomb Prismatic Glitter Eyeshadow Palette

::: press sample / affiliate links :::

G-L-I-T-T-E-R! I think it's more than obvious what the theme of the day is. Glitter! Sorry. But, I am quite pleased to talk about the sparkly stuff. You see, all year I've been thinking I need more glitter in my makeup arsenal. The thing is, I've been unable to decide what format is best- pressed, loose, cream, gel, liquid- the options seem endless and there are so many indie brands doing incredible things with glitters. That is why I was so interested in seeing just how well the Too Faced Glitter Bomb Prismatic Glitter Eyeshadow Palette could do the job. Since it's the season for glitter, let's take a peek...

Holiday Glitz on a Budget | Hard Candy Holiday 2017

If there is only one season of the year where one can fully immerse themselves in glitter, it has to be the holidays. A little glitter injection never hurts a celebration, right? Hard Candy is all about that shimmery life, but also believe you can achieve that glittery perfection without spending a ton. As such, they have a quite a few glitzy options in their large array of holiday offerings...

Gimme Some Sugar | Fresh Sugar Holiday 2017 Gift Sets

I don't know... Does it feel like the holiday season to you? I've spent the day immersed in a bunch of holiday launches (SO many great posts in the works!) but it just doesn't feel like the season is really here yet. I was shopping a few days ago, and the holiday music just seemed so out of place. I mean, I'm not really fan of it to begin with (no, I'm not a total Scrooge) but I digress. Fresh (their Sugar range specifically) is ringing in the season with some very adorable, limited edition, lip sets that make for great additions to any stocking or gift.
