Valentine’s Day Gift Guide : For Her

I am one of those people who LOVES GIVING gifts, not so much getting them so when it comes to holiday shopping all about it – kind of.  I am truly so grateful to have a supportive spouse, loving family and a job that allows me to work with brands and companies that keep my closet and vanity fresh all the time.  That being said, although I don’t need or want anything, if one were to put together a guide of things I would love to get, here it is (hint hint).

TUMI Voyageur Erie Nylon Cosmetic Case

This chic case is the last cosmetic case you will ever buy! It is 9″W x 6″H x 4″D making it perfect for a weekend getaway. What makes this different from others is that it is water resistant which means that when using it near sinks you don’t have to worry about what is inside!

Herbivore Botanicals Coco Rose Hydration Kit

At under $40, this gift is sure to make any woman feel cared for. This luxurious collection is paraben-free; sulfate-free; phthalate-free; and silicone-free. It includes a face mist, lip blam, and body polish that will make her feel great about herself.

Love Is In the Air Umbrella

How cute is this umbrella! The entire Kate Spade umbrella collection is pretty adorable. With April showers around the corner, don’t leave your Valentine stuck in the rain without this.

Eternity Bracelet from The Styled Collection

I am so glad to have discovered affordable fashion jewelry from The Styled Collection. I have been rocking my arm candy from them for months as you can see here and here. There is no doubt that any combination of bracelets would make a great gift, but the Eternity bracelet really has a trendy look that makes it special.

Jules Smith Crimson Layered Chain Necklace

One of the biggest trends that does not seem to be going anywhere is layered necklaces. This one will look on anyone. For under $50, she will feel so elegant with this one on!

Corkcicle Insulated Thermos

As I mentioned in my Gift Guide for him, if you have not jumped on the insulated thermos band wagon, now is a good time to start! And this one is so sparkly, how can you not??

Beauty Blender Clean Set

This is a slam dunk gift for any woman who wears makeup. Every single female I know uses these and would love to get a new one (am I right ladies?!?) One blender usually costs $20, so to get this set with two blenders and the cleaning liquid for $45 is a great deal.

Guilty by Gucci

Let me list the scents : pink pepper, peach, lilac, geranium, amber, and patchouli. This perfume is packed with so much essence that it is natural enough for daily use but exotic enough to feel sexy!

Yves Saint Laurent Heart And Arrow Rouge Lipstick

This limited edition collectors lipstick is perfect for your Valentine. I have reviewed this exact lipstick in this video (color: Nude Lavalliere) and its looks and feels so good on women with our olive complexion.

I hope you loved this gift guide for her – let me know what some of your favorites are!

Your Chick,

Sonicblend Brush VS Beauty Blender

When I received the Michael Todd Beauty Sonicblend Brush for the holidays I was super excited to try it and see how it compares to my tried and true Beauty Blender.  Make up application is a part of my everyday routine, I have simply made it a habit to never leave the house without it.   I am always looking for new ways to speed up my routine and love seeing what new products are out there.

Sonicblend Brush VS Beauty Blender

Check out my video to see what happens when I apply foundation to half my face with the Beauty Blender and apply foundation to the other half with my new Sonicblend brush.

Although I still LOVE the Beauty Blender I dare say that the Sonicblend Brush has a more ‘done up’ finish (which I prefer!) whereas with the Beauty Blender you can still kind of see your skin through the application which creates a more natural looking finish unless you layer up!  Also the Sonicblend brush does not require water for application so your finish benefits from the full foundation coverage whereas with the Beauty Blender your foundation can get watered down.

I loved testing out this new product and lately I have been sharing my thoughts on our YouTube channel, tell us what you think and if you like what you see, hit subscribe!  For more of our other beauty hacks, click here.
