5 Things to Add to Your Holiday Wishlist

by

I can’t believe that it’s already December! It’s crazy how quickly this year has flown by. I’m sure that by now someone has asked you what you want for Christmas (or whichever holiday you celebrate) and you might not know what to give them for an idea. I never know what to ask for Christmas, especially because I’m the kind of person that if I want it – I’ll buy it myself. However, if you need some ideas of some “different” things to put on your list, keep on reading!

Glasses from Warby Parker

You might be thinking, “Rae, what?”, but hear me out! If you need a prescription for glasses, you know how expensive they can be and how hard it is to find a great looking pair for a great price. I spent maybe an hour trying to find the right pair of glasses for me the last time I had an eye exam, I’m pretty sure the guy waiting on me was getting a bit irritated since I was taking so long. Warby Parker offers a FREE Home Try-On option so you can try multiple frames out in the comfort of your own home. You can take all the time you need, just ship them back after 5 days and if you’re not pleased with the ones you selected, you can always grab more the next time. Not only does Warby Parker offer quality frames & lenses for a great price, they also have awesome travel cases, cleaning kits and cases to hold one pair of frames. They also have gift cards which is the bomb, you really can’t lose.

WeatherTech Car Liners

I don’t know about you, but I hate cleaning my car. I feel like no matter how many times I clean it, it doesn’t look clean. The floor mats that I currently have in my car aren’t the perfect fit and so much of the car floor is exposed because of that. WeatherTech car liners are literally perfect to solve all my problems. Since these are a bit on the pricey side, that’s why I’m deciding to put them on my Christmas list! They’re practical and safer (since my floor mats constantly shift). I think it’s really cool that these are specifically made to fit your car perfectly and cover more area than normal floor mats. I think they’re definitely worth the investment.

Smart Home Technology from Nest

I’m not sure how many of my readers are living on their own yet, but I think that having some smart home technology is a great idea. I know that some people are super iffy about this kind of stuff, however, I think it’s awesome. From thermostats that you can control from your phone while you’re away to smart locks and doorbells, they’ve got you covered. Especially around this time of year with package snatchers, it’s always a good idea to have a bit of extra protection for your home.

Weighted Blanket

I’m sure you’ve seen weighted blankets around. They’re a pretty hot topic right now and for good reason. Weighted blankets are good to help reduce stress (there’s science behind it). They are good for individuals who have anxiety or sensory issues but I feel like pretty much anyone would be able to benefit from one. I always have a blanket on me, regardless of the temperature. I just like the feeling of having something on me (that sounds so weird), it’s comforting. I bet you’d get such a good nights sleep with this blanket!

A Voucher for a Class

I don’t know about you, but I love learning and I love making things with my hands. I think that getting a voucher for an art class would be a great gift. You could do a Paint Nite class and leave with a canvas painted by you, or you could do a glass blowing class – there’s so many options. I think this would be awesome to receive and you could even use the class to make something for someone else or yourself. I definitely want to take a glass blowing class in the future or maybe a ceramics class, where you would work on the wheel.

I hope you enjoyed the post. What’s something on your wishlist? Let me know! 🙂

Thanks so much for reading, as always <3

My Beauty Wishlist | Summer 2016

by

beautywishlist

I usually impulsively buy things for no reason, so I’m trying to be good and keeping wishlists so I can buy stuff for when I run out of the items I’m already using, even though this wishlist doesn’t really include anything I use daily, but you know what I mean, right? I also just like wishlist posts so I can see what other people are lusting after, I find that it usually introduces me to new brands and products, so without further adieu, let’s get wishin’!

Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Mud Mask

I’ve been going a lil’ mask crazy lately because I’ve been having a lot of hormonal breakouts (due to my birth control), so I’ll try anything that I think would help. This mask from Freeman is supposedly a dupe/alternative to the GlamGlow Super-Mud mask so I would like to try it out because GlamGlow isn’t cruelty free (as far as I know) and it’s way more affordable than the $70 mask. I’m hoping to go to an Ulta by me soon to check this out and some other masks. I just really haven’t found anything yet that’s really cleared up my skin so I’m hoping if I try this someday, it’ll do the job.

 

Wet n Wild Fan Brush

I’ve heard a lot of people raving about the Wet n Wild brushes, I just never got around to purchasing them. I want this fan brush to apply highlighter, because fan brushes are the ones that people seem to be using for highlighting, I honestly just use my finger, but I want to try something new. I also thought why not give this brush a try? Because it’s under $5, so you really can’t go wrong.

Kat Von D Lock-it Concealer in White Out (Or my shade)

Everyone’s been going crazy about Kat’s new release and I’m so full of envy when I see people on Snapchat open their PR packages from her haha. I think white concealer is unique (I’ve personally never seen it before) and I wonder if it would actually work for me, since I’m so light. I am kind of afraid to leap in and get the white, incase it doesn’t work out for me, so maybe I would grab the proper shade for me. By the product picture, it looks like I’d love the type of applicator it has since it’s not a normal dove foot (maybe I’m just making things up? Who knows). It’s a pretty pricey concealer but I’m just curious to see how it would work out!

Zabana Essentials Lavender Lemongrass Face & Body Tonic

I haven’t tried anything from Zabana Essentials, but I was browsing their website, and I want it all! They have two different types of face & body tonics, and I think the Lavender Lemongrass one would be best for me since it’s a balancing + detoxifying one (The other one is a brightening + rejuvenating one…but maybe I should just get both and get the best of both worlds.)

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea H20 Hydrating Boost

This is a gel-like moisturizer and I love it. I got a sample in a discovery set from Sephora with some other Rainforest of the Sea goodies. It’s super hydrating and doesn’t irritate my skin or clog my pores. My face also doesn’t feel sticky after using it, like other moisturizers do. It is quite pricey ($40), but I do like it. (If you know of any cheaper alternatives, let me know!)

Zabana Essentials Facial Steamer

I think this product is a cool concept, and again, I’ll try anything to try to clear up my skin! You add one steamer (I think) to a bowl of hot water and drape a towel over your head to let the steam open your pores, so the steamer can do it’s job. I feel like this would be super relaxing on a pampering night and I realllllly want to try these out asap!
