The Best Gifts I've Received – Holiday Gift Guide
  1. Dana Rebecca Lauren Joy Necklace: This was a gift from my boyfriend for my birthday last year! I wear it every single day.
  2. Apple TV: A gift I got in college and now, I can’t imagine watching TV without it lol it offers all streaming services and would be a great gift for anyone!
  3. Harry Potter Scarf: This was a gift from my boyfriends mom and I love it. It is so unique!
  4. Barefoot Dreams Poncho:(ON SALE!) – My boyfriends mom got this for me as well 2 years ago and it has been a must have for me recently due to the cold weather we have been having in SF. I also got one for my mom the same year!
  5. Dana Rebecca Huggies: Another gift from my boyfriend, he always gets me jewelry because it is my favorite hahah but I wear these every day in my second ear lobe piercings.
  6. Kendra Scott Jewelry Box:(25% OFF!) One of the best gifts I’ve ever received. I store all of my jewelry and I will have it forever!
  7. Soludos White Sneakers: So kinda cheating on this one because I bought these for myself but hey, self love is important LOL I got these this past summer for a trip to Portugal and these are the best white sneakers for walking. I even own Adidas sneakers and think these are better!
  8. Gorjana Mosaic Pendant Necklace:I love this necklace and it goes with everything!
  9. Longchamp Le Pliage Large Tote Bag: I bought this again for myself when I just had moved to SF because I wanted a “city bag.” Something extremely functional, nothing flashy and waterproof. This is one of the best bags I own, even over my luxury bags!
  10. Sam Edelman White Linnie Mules: Another gift from my boyfriends mom but these were my most worn shoes for 2019 next to my white sneakers! I will forever own these shoes and they are great dupes for the Gucci loafers!
  11. Spanx Faux Leather Motto Leggings: (20% OFF!) Ok slowly realizing this is also a “best gifts I’ve bought myself” list but had to mention these. Faux Leather leggings are a must and these are currently on sale. I bought mine last year and they hold up perfectly!
  12. Crate and Barrel Wine Glasses:(ON SALE!) From one wino, to another, these are the same wine glasses Olivia Pope had in Scandal!
  13. Tech Gloves:(ON SALE!) I can’t remember who gifted these to me but I love them! They are amazing for the cold days and actually work!
  14. Halogen Trench Coat: Last but not least, my trench coat. Again, I bought this for myself when I found out I was moving to SF. I wanted a good everyday trench and this is perfect. Water repellent and also can be dressed up or down. I love it. Worth every penny!

Happy Black Friday! A few weeks ago I asked on Instagram gift guides you wanted to see and this was one I saw a few requets for! I loved the idea & with Black Friday here, many of these items are on sale!

I also did some holiday shopping last night as well and I wanted to share with y’all what I bought for some of the people in my life!

I bought these leggings for my mom, this cardigan for my boyfriends mom, this flannel for my boyfriend and this jacket for my brother!

  1. Lawless The Little One Eyeshadow Palette: This palette caught my eye. I think it is a great price, the quality I’ve heard is amazing and it seems like a great beginner palette.
  2. Kosas Mixed Metals Holiday Trio Set: These metallic shadows were actually recommended to me! The colors are fun as well!
  3. Patrick Ta Major Glow On the Go: This gloss is what really has my attention! I personally am not big into body oils as we all know but if you are, this seems like a great set!
  4. Bite Agave 3 Piece Holiday Gift Set: I would HIGHLY recommend this! My lips have been so chapped this week due to all the smoke in air and the ONLY thing that makes them feel better is the mask. These are mini sizes but for the price, this is worth having! I’m going to buy this so I can keep a set in my purse!
  5. Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Face & Eye Palette: I thought this was really pretty and great for all of us who don’t have 100 hours to do our makeup and generally wear neutral colors. You will notice I included a lot of CT in this guide but I think her products are generally worth it and if you can get a discount with the VIB sale or snag one of her gift sets, I would!
  6. Tarte Cosmetics 9 Ways to Shine Cheek Wardrobe: Tarte for years has released holiday blush sets and every year I recommend them because I think they are such a bang for your buck! Their formula is very long lasting on the skin and they have so many colors! I thought this set specifically would be great to pass out for secret Santa or gift to a few different people in your life!
  7. Fenty Beauty Mini Gloss Bomb Holiday Set: OMG. Y’ALL. This is a deal. The gloss bombs are absolutely INCREDIBLE and this is one of the best holiday sets released so far! I would SNAG this ASAP! I also think this one is a great holiday set!
  8. Jouer Cosmetics Rose Cut Gem Blush and Cheek Topper Palette: I love the Jouer blush and highlight formula! The highlights are intense and pack a punch and the blush formula is so creamy.
  9. Bite Beauty Mini Amuse Bouche Supercharged Lip Holiday Set: Bite makes such nourishing lip products and these are no exception. Another gift set you can split up and give amongst friends & family.
  10. Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eyeshadow Palette Shade Celestial Eyes(limited edition): These are SO expensive but the formula is really beautiful. The shimmers are what make it worth it in my opinion. If you like luxury makeup, snag one of these palettes up.
  11. Charlotte Tilbury Gift of Pillow Talk Holiday Set: The famous Pillow Talk collection is now in a gift set, this is one of her best sellers and comes with a lip liner and lipstick.
  12. Hourglass Scattered Lights Holiday Gift Set Trio: The scattered lights formula is one of my favorites for individual shadows and I thought these colors were so fall/winter appropriate! It is on the pricey side but get it during the VIB sale to save some money!
  13. Charlotte Tilbury Starry Eyes to Hypnotize Eyeshadow Palette: This palette looks like a beautiful day to night palette. I’ve thought about buying it many times and may cave during the VIB sale. Everything from the packaging to rose pink tones, neutral tones and cool tones just grabs my attention!

I will be uploading a Sephora VIB Recommendations sale video on Friday, November 1st. Rouge members have access first so stay tuned for that video if you would like even more recommendations for products I love!

  1. Barefoot Dreams Blanket – you probably have heard a million people talk about these but OMG. They are SO good! This is the perfect gift for any homebody and the one I linked in currently on major sale! Once it gets closer to holidays, these will sell out because of how discounted they currently are!

  15. Nordstrom Moonlight Pajamas – I bought these during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and they are so soft. Feel like butter on the skin!
  16. Sephora Pack it All Bag – I talk about this all the time on my YouTube channel but it is the best makeup bag for those who love to travel with a lot of makeup. If you travel lightly, I would recommend this one!
