The Holidays are here! #giftguide #goldgiftguide #holidays #sponsored

Happy Holidays. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. We love products and we love to test out products that come across our desk. The holiday time is busy and we know you don’t have a lot of time to get things done. We have gathered a few items at trendymommies.com that you may be interested in for the holidays. Gold is the theme! I know Rose Gold is pretty popular but I still love GOLD!  It is still a color trend that you will see everywhere!  Here are a few suggestions from this year’s trendymommies.com 2017 holiday gift guide!

For the tech lover – there are plenty of smart phone cases out there but there really is only one that is very protective and also that looks good – The Otter box 

Yes I do love these cases and they start at $44.95! Go ahead drop your phone and see how protective they are! (just kidding…don’t drop your phone but do go buy an Otter box – we love the rose gold and gold ones especially!)

For the teen/tween and mom – all make-up is not created equal. I look for natural lines that really perform. Jane Iredale is that line. This clean, mineral make-up and skin care has something for everyone. They have fun holiday kits and a great gold compact that is perfect for your bronzer. I love the contour kit as it is sleek and gold and the luminizer kit works great.  Their eye shadows are amazing. This must have kit comes in a sleek, slim gold case. These two items are the ones you will take with you everywhere along with the golden gloss! I loved their PureGloss lip gloss. The Crabapple is very moisturizing and lasts – no stickiness. It is made with lemon peel, tangerine peel and pomegranate extracts. Their bronzer is the best I have tried! The make-up is formulated with pure micronized minerals and pigments and is cruelty-free. They also have a holiday gift guide right on their site. 

For the hard to buy person in your life – Gift cards – you know you need them. For one stop shopping our favorite retailer is CVS Pharmacy. You can buy all your gift cards right there. In addition they have holiday décor – see this adorable gold pillow below. They also have so much make-up and kits to chose from. Their beauty accessories, packaged beauty gifts, tech accessories AND toys for the kids really makes it easy to shop. I like when you are in line and see all the beauty buys and the last minute tech gifts such as headphones, chargers and cases. I buy all my stocking suffer gifts here every year.

Speaking of stocking stuffer gift ideas I discovered this lip balm at CVS called Moroccan Magic Organic Lip Balm which says it is the smoothest lip balm ever and it is! So many flavors to choose from. They even have a rose one as well! You can order online here or pick up at your local CVS. These make a perfect stocking stuffer gift.

For the foodie or really anyone that loves a nice tea. David’s Tea has so many accessories and teas to choose from. We love the tea in a pouch called the Jolly Teas Sachet Travel Pouch as it has the holiday tea bags in it!  David’s Tea even has adorable gifts like this white cranberry bark tea infused beauty duo. 

This includes the best smelling hand cream and soothing lip butter. Buy a set for each of your friends. But the best gift of all from David’s tea is the 24 days of tea. This is the one thing you buy yourself NOW so you can enjoy a tea a day as you countdown the days until Christmas!

Disclosure: The above companies sent items to review and test out. As always all opinions are my own in this blog post.

@CVS_Extra holiday gifts for all #sponsored

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I love the holiday season and I am very organized when it comes to gift buying and shopping. I am all for one stop shopping and getting it done early and quickly. CVS sent me a few fun goodies for the holiday season -the retailer really has something for everyone. I stopped there to pick up a few holiday decorations, a gift for the puppy, stocking stuffers and snacks for the girls – see! one stop shopping.  Here are a few gift ideas that you can always find at CVS.  Also, don’t forget to use those extra bucks for extra savings. I love waiting at the register for the print out to see what savings I have – I know – such a shopping geek!

1.  Decorations – I still have my reindeer ears and nose from a few years ago purchased at CVS. They have a nice selection of unique holiday decor from tiny trees, stockings, ornaments and these adorable clear nutcrackers. The holiday isle is perfect for shopping for secret santa gifts.

2. Beauty – Look above at the top shelf in the beauty isles for cute packaged gift ideas for the gal in your life – who doesn’t love lip gloss and nail polish?

3.  Candy – my girls love CVS for the selection of their brand name packaged candy and of course the upfront candy section. The retailer has a nice selection of holiday candy packaged up too.

4. Stocking Stuffer gift ideas – so growing up the stocking was always filled with items that you need like socks, necessities such as lotion, deodorant, etc. Check out the travel section for some cute ideas.

5.  Don’t forget Fido – In case you didn’t know they also have supplies for cats and dogs at CVS too – so it really is easy, fun and quick shopping at CVS!

 

Disclosure: I partnered with CVS and they sent me some fun goodies for the holiday and a gift card. As always all opinions are my own in this blog post.

Fa, La, La, La, La….to @CVS_Extra #Sponsored #CVSMeetUps

It’s down to the wire….Christmas is almost here so hopefully you don’t have a lot of running around left to do. One of my favorite retailers – CVS -is my go to stop when I need any extras to get ready this holiday season. Actually it’s my stop when I need ANYTHING. I have done food shopping at my local CVS – to pick up a few things  – and you may have noticed at your local CVS all the different choices in store. What great fun it was today to take a field trip to CVS to hear from representatives  about what is new in store.

For the #CVSMeetUps a group of bloggers got together to see the better bites, better selection and an even better grab and go part of one of their bigger stores. We walked some of the isles to see new products. I love the radiance platinum line of supplements  now. There was a sample in the gift bag they gave us and I tried it right away.  This line is certified organic and non-gmo as well. The allergy solution isle now has clearly marked signs to help you pick the best option for allergy season and in the beauty isle they have multiple organic lines to choose from including their own Organic Promise, my fav line Say Yes, Alba, Jason and more! Also new is the addition of premier brands for beauty including Jouviance and Wilma Schumann.

Back to your last minute holiday shopping…..What I love about CVS is that it is a great one-stop-shop. CVS provided me with a gift card to pick up some stocking stuffers and some items for the holiday season. They have the best selection of holiday decor (lights are on sale this week!), the best travel item section (great for stocking stuffers), your every day items like detergent, tissues and I needed a frame and batteries for holiday gifts and they have those items as well. I have frequented there many times for milk and bread and of course for birthday party needs like cards, gift bags and balloons. Their candy selection is extensive as well. Plus you can shop online too if you cannot get out to a local store. So think CVS for all your holiday shopping needs this season!
