Holiday Gift Guide: Stuff I bought for myself..

While this is the season of giving isn't it the hardest thing to go to the mall this time of year?
because I want EVERYTHING.

And like I said a few posts ago I see everything as a prop so I double convince myself that I need things.

"Oh makeup bags?! I own a lot of makeup I could use those, plus they would look cute on Instagram!"

So here are a few thoughts on what to get for 'her'..
or me, because these are all things that I really like and own.

Affliate links don't change anything for you but they may give me a commission if you buy. 

My first thought this year was that I wouldn't waste money on the junky stuff for my sisters but instead I would invest in quality.

I was thinking either bracelets or anklets because that's a one size fits all!
I am a huge bracelet wearer, you probably don't see me with them much on Instagram stories because I am always doing my makeup so I wait until that's done or I'd have sliding/jingly bracelets monopolizing my mic sound. lol

I typically keep a few bracelets next to my lipstick at the front door and I layer them on my way out.
I like the style of this C'est la vie $59 cad (click me) because it is so layer-able, looks good with a watch too!

Who was I kidding with the 'one nice thing and that's it'..
I could not avoid the 'junkies'.

Clearly you need some junkies to fill up the gift bag and you know what, there has been Christmas' when the junk gift was my favorite of the whole bunch.

I started with Chokers.
Chokers are the hottest accessory right now and they look good from tween to middle age, I wear them to dress up a sweater shirt as much as a fancy outfit.
(I blame Kylie Jenner for the oversized plain black T style coming back, I love it and hate it. lol)

You can get a 12 pack of black chokers on amazon for $9.99
$9.99!!! what!
- Click here for $9.99 chokers

I should mention I am a amazon prime member so free shipping for me is pretty much a given, if that link doesn't offer cheap shipping look around! there were tons of choker options and all different quantity/styles options.

Amazon Prime memberships cost $79 cad (Click me) and you get free 2 day shipping, yadda, yadda.
This could also make a great gift LOL ^ I hate paying membership fees myself, would love it to be gifted.

Makeup bags, I can never have enough!
It's hard to find these exact ones as I ordered them a while ago but..
- How cute are these ones?! click me $12

and there are TONS of fruit (pineapple, strawberries, donuts lol) or cat options..
- watermelons! $6 Click me

- Stop being so cute! 3 for $20.. I want these.

I LOVE a Christmas sweater, you know I do.
I especially love a cheeky one like this ^

Mind you, these are terrible quality! LOLing
They're not going to last the long haul nor be a comfortable cotton but for what they are: hilarious!/ profile pic worthy/imagine the family photo these sweaters could wield.
They're perfect.
- Merry Christmas Bitches! Click me

I will say SIZE UP, these are not made for curves.
Not if you like oversized anyway, I want everything extremely oversized.

These ones are KILLING me, I need this one:
- Feliz Navidad Bichachos (click me, loling)

These eyelash pillow cases are adorable and so cheap! $6 click!

I went crazy with these.. so unnecessary, yet totally necessary.
because I ordered the covers for cheap all I had to do was head down to the basement for pillow inserts and I spent under $20 for a great gift!

Ok I would only give used pillow inserts to someone like my sisters but they're not 'used' as much as 'I have too many pillows so why not swap the cases as much as possible?!?'
New life to a sad pillow just asking to be used.

For gift giving, you can buy new inserts at stores like Wicker emporium or my go to, Amazon see pillow inserts.  

These makeup bags are ALL the rage, I'm not sure why... I mean they are cute and I love the drag string close.. but for some reason they've hit every gift guide on the internet this year.

I picked one up way before I knew they were cool so I feel super ahead of the trend.
- Drawstring makeup bag click me! $9.99

Same deal with those makeup brushes, all the rage, I haven't tried them yet but stay tuned to Instagram stories because TODAY I will be testing them for #tryitTuesday
- 10 piece Toothbrush style makeup brushes $19.99 click me!

Lets talk about face masks because who doesn't love a face mask?!
I've tried a lot but these few I feel would suit anyone and aren't too harsh on the skin.

(my goodness Sephora has a TON of mini gift sized/special gift packs for Christmas!)

GlamGlow Click $30 (this is just one option that includes that purple mask, I like the purple one because the mask colour is actually bright silver! super metallic, very in right now)

Peter Roth Cumcumber mask Click $15 (again this is just one option! they also have a nice $31 pack. I love this cucumber mask because its just cool and soothing, helps with my redness/rosacea)

Origins Drink up Click $13 (just one option! I think Origins brand is so underrated! The price is amazing and quality is great. This Drink up is SO moisturizing, sometimes I leave it on overnight.)

Face Mask, Foot Mask, Hair Mask.
Classic stocking stuffer!

Face Mask $8
Hair $6
Foot $6 (click ^)

Okie doke that's it, I really have another 25 gift guides I could publish!
back in September when everyone started posting their guides I was like "HA HA HA. ridiculous!"
but clearly that should have been me, because I love gifting and I have infinite suggestions.

Sephora also has a notice to order by December 15th to get it by the 24th so heads up if you're using their site, and check Amazons availability based on individual product.

What kind of gifts do you do??!
junky or maybe one large, I'm torn as to what to do every year!
