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.

All you need in your make-up bag @janeiredale #mineral #ad

I am always looking for products that are easy to use and multi-functional products are always nice too!  That is why I love Jane Iredale’s products. The mineral make-up line has been around a while but always comes out with innovative products. The company sent me several items to test out and review and here are the results.

You know when you are on the go and need a touch up but don’t want to bring the eye shadow, liner and applicator, etc. – well Jane Iredale has this mystikol eye which is a  liner/shadow all in one and it is great. It is compact and creates a soft, smoky eye effect. Great colors too in a slim, eyeliner design.

How many of us use SPF on our hands??? Well you should and that is why I like this staple in my make-up bag. Hand Drink is the item to keep in your car too- it is a hand cream with an SPF 15 and is ultra hydrating. I liked the smell of it – like roses but it is a bit strong – my kids didn’t like.

I never have individual eye shadows in my make-up bag as it takes up too much room!  Jane Iredale’s naturally matte eye shadow kit is perfect for gals on the go as it includes five blendable shades and the colors are so light but look very nice. Plus it is a very slim case so perfect for on the go.

Lip Fixation  is my go to product. It is a lip stain on one end and a gloss on the other. It really is the only product that stays on my lips! I have had several of these over the years actually and finally got to test out a color that is new to me -Cherish – which is a bubblegum pink and sheer frosted gloss. I make it lighter or darker depending on the lip liner I use. Plus with this you always have gloss with you.

 

 

I always admire the Jane Iredale packaging and the Sugar & Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper comes in a cute little gold case!  It is lip exfoliator/plumper duo and is an on the go lifesaver. No need for any lip balm when you wake up in the morning use the exfoliator and then wipe and immediately put on the plumper and you are set to go!

Now to go empty out all my old make-up and replace with the new Jane Iredale make-up.

Jane Iredale fun, new make-up
