Some of my favorite gifts I’ve ever received have been the smallest, most personalized ones (or even well, thought out stocking stuffers). I love giving- and getting- unique gifts that speak to someones personality and show how well you know them rather than how much money you can spend on something. This ‘Holiday Gift Guide’ is all about the small but thoughtful gifts ranging in prices from under $25 all the way to $200.
Kate Spade NY always has the most adorable selection of gifts and right now they’re having 30% off everything with code: GREEN30 So get your shopping on!

I was so excited when Serena & Lily asked me to be a part of their holiday promotion, where they had five bloggers choose different parts of their home to decorate for the holidays (using their favorite Serena & Lily items). I knew I didn’t want to go the traditional route of greens and reds, but wanted the space to still feel festive and go with the rest of our decor. I love how adding a few gold accents- through the pillows, candlesticks, ornaments and throw- add a feel of celebration to our cozy living room.
The best part is that you can head on over to Serena & Lily’s Facebook page to vote for your favorite holiday look for your chance to win a $1000 gift card to Serena & Lily! The contest will run until 12/22 where they will pick one random person to win the shopping spree. Good luck and don’t forget to check out Serena & Lily’s whole holiday collection here!

My beauty routine only changes slightly during the holidays- a little more dramatic and more focus on the eyes. Since I’m not really a huge eyeshadow person, I love playing around with my eyeliner either using different colors, (like dark purple and deep blue) doing a cat eye or something smokey.
A bold cat eye is one of my favorite beauty looks. This time, I took the edges of the eyeliner (wearing this one) out a little further than normal and made them thicker on my lash line. Because it’s such a statement, I left everything else pretty neutral. On my lips, I used this Bite Lip Crayon in “rhuebarb” and my favorite neutral gloss, Bobbi Brown in “pink beiege”. I recently bought the “Best Bite Set” from Sephora and love it! All of the colors are really gorgeous, especially the “cranberry” shade. To finish the look, I added some of my Guerlain bronzer in “brunette”.
I’m also wearing bareMinerals original foundation in “medium beige” and bareMinerals “Lash Domination” mascara.
