The Gift of Beauty

Doesn't everyone love something that makes them feel good about themselves. A gift of beauty can do just that. These ideas are all over the board with price points so hopefully you can find something that a friend, mother, daughter or even yourself would like to find under the tree.

Jo Malone Shower Oil: I know this seems like a splurge but oh the smell! It is divine and this time of year of when our body is craving moisture this is a great gift. Cleans and softens the skin. Win Win!

Charlotte Tilbury Mascara: If you know me, then you know this is one of my favorite gifts to give and receive. Her mascara is the bomb. Seriously I love it. I don't know what makes it magical but my lashes just seem longer and fuller. Want to up the ante, add this Beauty Light Wand. A great way to brighten the eye area when we are feeling a little droopy. Would be a great Christmas gift that she can use for New Years Eve.

A Red Lipstick: Simple but something she may not buy herself. I love this one from Bobbi Brown. I've been wearing it when I'm going from work to an after work event and need to bring it. Something about a red lipstick makes you feel powerful.

A Night Time Body Moisturizer: At night I try and be good and slather on moisturizer but let's get real unless it is right by my bed it is probably not going to happen. This Alexander McQueen moisturizer has multiple purposes. First, it is a light airy feeling so I don't feel heavy and sticky; second, it is a slight fragrance and third, it is a really pretty container so can stay by my bed.

Aveda Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner: This is the Cadilac of Shampoo and Conditioner in the Aveda line. For someone that suffers from frizzy hair in the summer and flyaway in the winter this is a necessary splurge. What a nice gift to give for someone. And yes, I've linked the big bottles because lets go big or go home.

Baby Foot Peel: Surely you've done this before. If you have then you know how wonderful and gross it is as the same time. If you haven't then I insist that you buy one for yourself and a friend, mother, daughter right now. This is a miracle worker and what better way to celebrate than to sit down with a glass of wine while you sit and let the magic happen. 



Although beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, the feeling of being beautiful exists solely in the mind of the beheld.
