Merry Monday, friends!
I am super pumped about today’s post because I’m partnering with Nordstrom and ShopStyle and talking all things holiday beauty including some great gift sets that are still in stock!
Okay, you all know that one of my very favorite gifts to give are holiday beauty gift sets from Nordstrom. They’re already packaged in a festive way, they are always a great price since they’re bundled into a set, they’re always good for all ages (teens to seniors love a great beauty gift set!), and they contain items you know the recipient is going to love! If you haven’t made a move towards gift sets yet this season, now is the time! Here are a few I picked up to gift…
Side note, all of the little red bows were on these Nordstrom items in store… #winwin! Okay, this Anastasia Brow Kit is a winner! It’s the perfect under $30 gift idea! It’s actually on sale even more right now and comes in five different shades!
…you all know that NOTHING makes me happier in the beauty department than an eye shadow palette. I get giddy every single time I get a new one. It’s like my adult version of using paints and watercolors. This Bobbi Brown palette is beautiful, and it’s also an additional 30% off right now!
Look how gorgeous it is…
…so pretty right?! Bobbi Brown makeup is always one of my favorites because her entire brand really focuses on natural shades for a natural, effortless beauty. This palette was purchased as a gift, but I ended up opening it and using it myself because the creamy colors are just so beautiful!
How many times have I suggested Jo Malone for a holiday gift over the years?! Too. Many. To. Count.
This is a beautiful set that everyone would love to see under the tree! I cannot rave enough about how much I love Jo Malone fragrances. That Wood Sage & Sea Salt is particularly one of my very favorites!
Speaking of minis…
…how cute are these Peter Thomas Roth Masking Minis?! Oh my gosh! I just think this set is adorable!!! It’s also on sale now for only $16!
About a week or so ago, I posted this pic on Stories about their cheeks being nice and rosy, they were comfy cozy and in my bed…
…ha! After I posted it, I had so many questions though about my silk pillowcase!
You guys, I’ve shared this before, but I thought I’d share it again because these pillowcases make EXCELLENT gifts!!
I’ve had mine for years but didn’t religiously use it until recently. Now, I use it all the time because I realized how much it significantly helps my skin and hair while I sleep. Now, you all know how much I love my flannel sheets. They’re so warm, so cozy and my absolute fave, but they’re not nearly as nice to me while I sleep as the silk ones are (preventing lines, creasing, helping prevent odd wrinkles and protecting my hair…no frizzy bedhead!). As you can see in my pic, I love the warmth of my flannel, so I actually put my slip on top of my flannel to give it a bit of warmth through the silk pillowcase. My slip is white, but they do come in 8 other colors too!
What really sold me on the using my slip every night…
…look how good my braids still look after sleeping on them all night. I mean, they’re not perfect, but they certainly looked better than when I wear braids to bed and use another pillowcase. If my hair is staying smoother and less frizzy, imagine how much my skin is benefiting too! Anyway, a great last minute gift idea for you is a pillowcase 🙂 .
After I moisturize in the morning, I apply this…
…and blend it all over my face before adding my foundation (the best foundation EVER, I use shade light beige). See how it blends right in but with just the tiniest bit of “glow”?! I love it! My foundation, bronzer and blush stay put all day and my face gets a little extra oomph from the primer too. #winwin
Don’t forget, this is another fun holiday-inspired eye shadow palette that I’ve been using this season…
…so fun, right?! Four fun neutrals easy to layer for the holiday season. I’ve been using them every day all over my lid and in the crease.
If you’re like me, gifting beauty is one of my favorite things each year for ladies of all ages. I rounded up some of my faves for you to check out. All of these holiday beauty gift ideas are ones I’ve used, shared and loved before. I think they would make great gifts for girls as young as Kensington too. Who doesn’t want a little beauty in their stocking this year?!

A few more finds before I wrap up our Monday…
…my new Ugg slippers 🙂 . You know how I feel about Ugg slippers. You would be hard pressed to find any picture of me inside my home not wearing a pair. Every fall, I buy myself a fresh new pair to enjoy 24/7 and this year, I picked this style HERE. It comes in a variety of colors, but chestnut spoke to me.
You know what my slippers would go great with????
I always love shopping at Nordstrom because not only do they have everything my family needs from beauty to shoes to home, clothes, bath and more, but they have impeccable service, free shipping, free returns and curbside pick up (all so handy for the busy holiday season!)…and the Nordy Club! You can catch all of their services (including alterations, gift wrapping, style help and more HERE!). I. Love. Them. Plus, this year, they have more ways to make the season bright! You can connect with the ‘man in red’ through Santa Chats, Santa Greetings and Letters for Santa. So many ways!
A few final Nordstrom holiday finds…
Finally, my TOP FOUR NORDSTROM FINDS right now to wrap up the year…
#1: This initial pendant is simply the perfect gift! Find the letter, add to cart, your recipient will LOVE this beautiful necklace!
Speaking of which…
#2: I am so in love with this pave initial necklace too! I love that it hits on the collarbone, so that it’s easy to layer!
#3: This quilted Zella bomber jacket is perfect for walks around the neighborhood, quick trips to the store, layer for the gym…I adore it. It comes in other great colors too, but you all know how I feel about the green 🙂 . It runs TTS.
#4: And yes, yes, yes to my Faux Shearling Bomber Jacket! Right now, it’s 50% off too! Holy cow! This is probably the best deal on today’s post!! I’m wearing TTS (xs) in the black, but it does come in other colors too. It’s roomy (so if you’re between sizes, I would size down), has pockets, it’s lined with a faux-leather trim…it’s cozy, warm and so cute! This jacket is such a good find!
Whew! Guys, it’s our last week of school for the year! I have a busy week in my personal life, but I also have a busy week in blog world too! Make sure you come back every day for festive fun including MY VERY FAVORITE POST OF THE YEAR coming up this week too!!! Have the Merriest Monday, friends! xx
