Beauty-Gifts-Image-1.jpgWe know the holiday season is all about giving. But, let’s be honest, there are presents we want to find under the tree and in our stocking, too. Here’s what’s on our holiday wishlist. (Or, okay, what you can give other people, too.)

Make Up For Ever Wild & Chic Aqua Cream Collection
With a selection of 10 Aqua Cream shadows in an animal-print case, this is definitely the most luxurious gift on our wishlist.
$175 at

Nails Inc. Glitterati Collection
What’s better during the holidays than a super glittery, glitzy nail polish? Nothing, if you ask us, especially when the polishes in question are these sparkly stunners by British brand Nails Inc.
$25 at

Fresh Sugar Fix
If there were any product out there guaranteed to give us a sugar high, this would be it. The combination of Sugar Lip Polish and Sugar Lip Treatment sure make us a little hungry.
$22.50 at

Tocca Rollerball Trio
Florence. Cleopatra. Colette. In a word? Heaven. Especially in delicate, go-anywhere-and-go-with-any-size-purse rollerballs.
$48 at

Scarlett Johansson stepped out on the red carpet this week to support her new movie, ‘We Bought a Zoo.’ I imagine ScarJo was channeling her inner wild animal, as her eyes shone bright and green beneath a heavy layer of blue shadow — it was all very reminiscent of a peacock’s beautiful feathers. While this sort of look is not quite day appropriate, it would make a nice statement at your next holiday party or New Year’s celebration … paired with the right ensemble of course!

Philosophy-The-Gingerbread-Girl.jpgThere’s nothing we love more than a shower gel that makes us embrace the holiday season. And one of our faves? Most definitely Philosophy The Gingerbread Girl.

We love the gingerbread scent with just a touch of spice. We love the gorgeous shimmery bottle (and the fact that it doesn’t make us look like a preteen with glitter everywhere). We love how soft and smooth our skin feels, especially when winter tries so hard to dry it out.

No matter how many shower gels find their way into our bathtub, this one gets special privileges during the holiday season. And best of all, this shower gel triples as a bubble bath and shampoo!

Philosophy The Gingerbread Girl retails for $16 at
Soap & Glory Heel Genius Amazing Foot Cream
Feet generally go into a form of hibernation during the summer months. But this doesn’t mean they have to go completely to the dogs! Give ‘em a much deserved break and some thirst-quenching moisture by lathering on Soap & Glory Heel Genius Amazing Foot Cream. Best of all it’s a no brainer application, you just put it on before bed and let it work it’s magic. For even more moisturizing amazingness, put on a pair of socks immediately after applying the lotion — the socks help your skin absorb the lotion better.

You can find Soap & Glory Heel Genius Amazing Foot Cream for $15 at

P.S. Still struggling for gift ideas? At that price it makes a great stocking stuffer!
The-Body-Shop-Spiced-Vanilla-Body-Scrub.jpgA creamy, whipped body scrub? We wouldn’t have thought it possible before discovering The Body Shop Spiced Vanilla Body Scrub. But lo and behold, it’s possible after all!

We love the homey vanilla scent peppered with just a touch of spice. This scrub is part of The Body Shop’s holiday collection, and we happen to think it fits right into a holiday theme.

The consistency and texture of the scrub is definitely different than any other we’ve tried, but that’s a refreshing change from the rough, granular scrubs we’re used to. It’s so nice to feel like we’re scrubbing away dead skin cells with a lotion!
