I am so excited for you all to see this and I also can’t believe I am writing about the C word already “Christmas”. This year has flown by but with Black Friday and it’s huge savings fast approaching and the beauty store shelfies emptying I need to make sure you all go shopping with the best beauty ideas in your head, after all its just a few weeks now until the big day!
This is my first ever gift guide and i like to be authentic so I haven't researched ideas of how others do theirs, so I hope I execute mine in an orderly fashion. The theme I have chosen is “Stocking Fillers”. I am talking small gifts that will fit in your stockings and sacks, token gifts for people you have to buy for but don’t really want to (LOL), gifts for those that have absolutely everything already, secret santas and good gifts at affordable prices for those of you that have a gazillion people to buy for so you can stretch the purse strings.
Lets begin ……..
