Now that the Holidays are over, I am finally getting around to using my Christmas and Birthday gifts ! I of course enjoy everything I got this year (and every year) but I have a few things that I have been obsessed with in the last week or two and I wanted to share them with you all.
The first one that I love is my “You are a Badass” book ! I am sure that many of you have seen this book floating around on the internet but it is totally awesome and such a game changer ! I am loving the way she writes and how motivating the book has been in just the first few chapters. I can’t wait to read more ! You can find your own copy HERE
Of course I got makeup palettes and they are awesome ! I have 2 favorites so far. One is the Naked Basics palette; which is the square one with several basic neutral shades. I love this and have been using it a lot. I also received a palette from the brand ProFusion, which I am pretty sure was a Christmas special at Target. If I am correct, the whole thing was less than $10 and I am in love with it ! The colors are awesome ! They are huge pans and the color pay off is great ! There is quiet a bit of fall out from the shadows but this is not an issue for me ! You can find the Naked Basics palette HERE and the ProFusion one HERE.
I also got a new oil diffuser and it is the cutest thing. It’s a USB port diffuser so you can utilize it from any USB charger that you have. It’s tiny and diffuses for 4 hours. I love that it’s portable and small for traveling. I also got some essential oil books, my favorite is the “Essential Oils for Mama and Baby” book. As I’ve been looking through it, I have found lots of helpful recipes for many of my pregnancy concerns ! It’s a great book for me now and will be great for when my second baby arrives. Below are the links for the diffuser and book.
I love the brand Soap and Glory and have recently started to use a lot of their products. I received 2 sets for Christmas that include body butters, scrubs, sprays and body washes ! They all smell so good and there is something for everything between the two sets. I like that the products are smaller sizes and I can repurchase the bigger ones if I decide that I love them. The gift sets are no longer available but you can check out their entire line of products on Ulta.com.
I asked for a new perfume for Christmas and picked out Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs. All I have to say is that it smells amazing and I have been wearing it non-stop !
Another gift on my wish list this year was an Air Fryer and my mother did not disappoint! I have used it only one time so far but I am so excited and have been pinning recipes and all sorts of things to try ! Plus it looks great on my counter ! I tried fried ravioli and they were delicious and much less greasy then deep frying would be ! Below is a link to similar one, they offer various sizes for all your needs.
My last favorite thing this year was Marshall’s gift cards. I have recently fell in love with Marshall’s and TJ Maxx and I find myself there all the time. Gift cards to these places will be so great because I am literally there almost every weekend. For those of you that don’t know, they have so many great things including makeup, shoes, clothing, home decor and everything else you can think of ! I linked the website for Marshall’s below. Unfortunately, you can not shop online because the variety at each store is different but you can locate your closest store.
Hope you enjoyed this post. I love seeing what others receive for the holidays and it also gives me gift ideas for birthdays, and other special occasions throughout the year.
What were some of your favorites this year ??
