Best treat to me are flowers whether you’re looking for something simple or something a little extra! Some of you may remember Andrew bought me a box from Venus Et Fleur when we were still in San Diego and they truly last at least a full year. They have a special preserving process that keeps them looking fresh and beautiful for a long time. I love the single Le Mini Round Rose and the Le Mini Square too.
I recently ordered a few bouquets from Urban Stems and really liked them! They come nicely packaged in a delivery box and you can add on extras like candies or vases.
Favorite lip products
I think the best thing to treat yourself with is a new lip product. The best long-wear mattes are from Pat McGrath Labs and she just launched her new Divine Rose II Collection with some new colors! (Review coming soon.) Anytime someone wants a recommendation for the best matte lip I always recommend the Pat McGrath MatteTrance.
The Bite Beauty Millennial Pinks Mini Power Move Creamy Matte set is still available and I highly recommend the formula and colors.
If you’re not into a lot of color and are more of a balm person, splurge-worthy picks include the Dior Addict Lip Glow Lip Balm & Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss Set, Hourglass Lip Oil, La Mer Lip Volumizer and Too Faced Hangover Rx Pillow Balm.
Nail polishes + Hand Care
For the person who doesn’t wear makeup you can always pick out a fun nail polish or hand cream. OPI and Essie are my friends’ favorites. I’m personally team OPI and they just launched their Hollywood Collection for spring and I’m in love with all the colors! Hand creams from Molton Brown and L’Occitane are a few of my favorites to gift away. If you want to splurge extra Chanel makes the most chic hand creams (and the formulas are really good!).
Things for the Home + Fun Gifts
A few useful and functional things I use everyday are my makeup bags from The Daily Edited, Lululemon Water Bottle and Yeti Tumblers and Diptyque candles. To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Diptyque they’ve launched their Hypnotic Graphic Collection with their best sellers in limited-edition jars. Roses is the prettiest one! Available in the standard size and also a cute Trio Set with the small candles.
To store bracelets and necklaces I have two T-Bar stands from Kendra Scott (often seen on stories, you can see them in action on my HOME highlights @beautylookbook) For something more fun or unique the Fujifilm Instax 11 Instant Print is really fun (comes in a wide range of colors) and there’s a super cute bundle here. As a candy lover I love all things from Sugarfina – the Love Letters Tasting Box looks fun (I ordered one for myself).
Hope this give you some fun ideas!
