If money meant nothing, these are what would be on my wish list to Santa. I kept seeing them on other blogs and loved seeing what others were wanting.
What is on your wish list?
Christmas is a stressful time of year, no matter how much you plan. I find December to be a month of luxury products so I picked this bubble bath up. This smells divine, sort of like an almond cookie or almond cake batter.
It’s Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Honey Bath which retails at for $40.00 at Sephora (online), Nordstrom and Laura Mercier.
So I popped some Epsom Salts in my bath water and two wands of this stuff and received a nice amount of bubbles.
This bath left my muscles feeling loose and less achey (crediting that to the Epsom Salts) and my skin silky smooth. So, yes I really enjoyed this product however it will depend how many uses I get out of one jar if I will repurchase. I am assuming I should get around 10 if I continue with the 2 honey comb scoops (which I absolutely think is adorable!). It is a luxury product you don’t have to have it, but you may need it just to feel little fancier at the end of a stressful day.
This would also make a wonderful present to anyone who adores a good bath.
Blush Mystery Box came in and it actually had 9 products this month! I am guessing since it is for the month of December for Christmas. I actually didn’t look at any of the sneak peeks this month so my box was a complete surprise.
So, with this having 9 products there are only 3 full size products being:
Lisa Hoffman Beauty Madagascar Orchid Moisturizing Body Cleanse that retails for $30.00 so that is the price of the entire price of the box.
NYX Love in Paris Eye Shadow Palette that retails for $10.00 which I will be giving a friend as a stocking stuffer.
NAILTIQUES Avocado Foot Creme which retails for $15.00 which I’m seriously just like “really another foot creme”.
The deluxe travel size items are:
NEOSTRATA Skin Active Exfoliating Wash
Sultra Hair Palette Clip-In Color Hair Extension
Eminence Stone Crop Body Lotion
NEOVA Make Up Remover Face and Eyes
MURAD Active Radiance Serum
REN Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream
This box is okay, but in reality half the items they send me I’m just kind of “oh, okay” I’m never super excited about this bag so I will be canceling my subscription. What do you think of this bag? Would you keep it or sign up for it?
Okay, this isn’t just for beauty bloggers, any girl or guy who uses a computer frequently or has a love for beauty would love these gifts. I just thought it would help with some ideas!
So what did I choose to stick in this stocking?
A Starbucks gift card, or even better a local coffee shop gift card, since we are always drinking coffee trying to get our posts out on time.
A memory card, because we can never have enough and honestly I tend to misplace them and then find them a week or two later extra memory cards are always such a good thing.
A candle since we all love smelling pretty things, and they help add a lovely background image to our photos.
A moisturizing hand cream and lip balm because winter is harsh on our hands and lips.
A face mask, this Origins one has four separate pods to use for 4 different occasions which I prefer because I am not opening a large tub and feel the need to use it constantly until it is out because I’m afraid of it drying out.
A set of keyboard decal stickers* from Kidecals. I love these for anyone who is on their computer a lot. It just brightens everything up. They are easy to apply and also easy to remove.
What would my fellow beauty bloggers like to see in their stockings on Christmas morning?
*Kidecals did send me a voucher to try these for free. I really enjoy them or else I would not have put them in this post. They were kind enough to give my readers 15% off any order they placed with them with the promo code fashion. The website is here. They have an assortment of labels.
I feel like this would be a really nice holiday look, simple eyes and a bold lip which I love.

Every once in a while I like a pop of color or a neutral nail. I believe my all time favorite color this year is the After School Boy Blazer (which you saw on my November Favorites). A deep blue/black.
What colors do you like wearing in the Fall and Winter? Do you change between those two seasons or keep it pretty even?
The Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette is back in stock on the Urban Decay website if you are one of my followers that mentioned you were sad it sold out it is back !!
Today is the first day of Blogmas, please remember to leave suggestions in the comments! Here are my favorites for the month of November.
Lancome Tresor Midnight Rose perfume smells just like cold months to me the notes in it are Blackcurrant, Raspberry, Rose Absolute, Jasmine, Vanilla, Cedar, Musk. Every time I wear this I get at least one compliment on it. I suggest going and smelling it!
The Laura Mercier Artists 2 palette, it is sold out online so I hate to mention it but I’ve been using it almost every day since I bought it. I would suggest searching all the Sephora’s near you for it.
Blistex Five Star Lip Protection is marvelous. It has already hit winter here so my lips are dry and this is so moisturizing and cheap.
Chella highlighting pencil has been a go to for me underneath my brows this month it is so subtle and beautiful.
Essie After School Boy Blazer if you like colors that are so dark they are black in some light and a color in another you should add this to your collection. It’s a beautiful deep navy color and I’ve been wearing it a ton and getting a ton of compliments.
