~25 Days of Beautiful Gifting Ideas~ Day Five- E.L.F Essential Gift Pack for Teens.....

Wednesday, December 05, 2012


Hey Everyone!

A soror and friend of mine shared that her 12 year old daughter wrote a beautiful and convincing statement/ letter sharing her desire....to start wearing makeup.

I know, you are thinking that I was all for it, but at 12, I wasn't wearing makeup because I wasn't interested. lol! However, I had friends that did and they wore ALOT of makeup at 12. I don't have boys, but I know if I had a 12 year old daughter who expressed the desire, in a respectable manner, such as my soror's daughter, I would let her. 

I would start with VERY, VERY light products and show her very simple application. This E.L.F. Essential Gift Pack is a perfect little gift and starter kit for a 12 year old. Some of the products she can use like the gloss and polish and other products she can simply play and get to know makeup application. No need to take her to MAC counter for $16 lipstick and $20 eye shadow. Soon enough she will be begging for that...lol! Save your money now.:)


Here's what in the kit:

  • Brightening Eye Color in Butternut and Nouveau Neutrals
  • Hypershine Gloss in Joy
  • Blush in Blushing
  • Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Sun Kissed
  • Super Glossy Lip Shine in Honey Do
  • Bubble Gum, Pearl and Clear Nail Polish
  • Mineral Booster in Small - Sheer
  • Dump Bag
  • Eye Shadow Brush
  • Total Face Brush
  • Blushing, Bronzing and Blending Brush


**My Gift to You!!**

I'm always looking for inspiration on how to work the pieces of clothing in my wardrobe. I came across this golden pin on Pinterest and I thought I would share it with my family!! How cute is this?

~25 Days of Beautiful Giving Ideas~ Day Four - Philosophy State of Grace.....


Hey Everyone!

I used to be a MASSIVE fan and collector of Philosophy products. I discovered Philosophy for myself back in 2001 and I was a huge Amazing Grace fragrance fan. Its the quintessential everyday simple fragrance. Lately, I've been wanting to repurchase Amazing Grace and Pure Grace and Philosophy has a great little kit called State of Grace

State of Grace has .33 fl oz of Amazing Grace, Pure Grace, Inner Grace and Living Grace for only $35. 

Now I'm wondering....do they still make Baby Grace? :)
***My Gift To You!!***

My favorite Christmas song. It took me a year to figure out the name of the song because I only heard it on the radio. Then on Thanksgiving Day, I'm listening to Luther Vandross Pandora station and the song comes on!!! And I search You Tube and its on You Tube!!! So hear you go...At Christmas Time...such a R&B Christmas smooth song sung by the legendary Luther Vandross!!!!
