So in the spirit of all things festive, I have curated an incredibly awesome gift guide this year (mostly beauty of course!) for you to peruse, shop and get inspiration from. I truly hope you find some fabulous gift ideas in this years picks and I hope that it helps make shopping for presents just a little bit more fun and a lot easier.

IT Brushes For ULTA City Chic Brush Set ($150 value for $68) I’m a huge fan of all the clever top notch beauty, skincare and makeup products form IT Cosmetics and their brushes are among the best on the beauty landscape. This holiday season they have outdone themselves with a fabulous array of must have gift sets (honestly, I had a hard time picking just one!), but their City Chic Brush Set ended up being my fav (I’m a sucker for all things rose gold!) This limited-edition set includes 5 full-size, ultra-plush Heavenly Luxe makeup brushes with ombre rose gold handles and a chic rose gold cosmetics bag (which you can also use as a clutch!) to hold all of these fab brushes. The makeup junkie or fashionista in your life will be your new BFF if you get her one of these!
Kiehl’s Collection For A Cause ($45) How eye catching and fab is the packaging on Kiehl’s 8th Annual Limited Edition Holiday Collection featuring the chic custom design by the Brooklyn-based artist duo FAILE?!
