Yes, it has begun. I actually have purchased a total of 4 items for 2 people this holiday season. While trying to be thrifty, yet thoughtful, I’ve found some great gifts. Sometimes I find really fabulous pieces for an irresistible price that aren’t my style, but would be perfect for a friend. Here’s where we bring some affordable holiday finds into play. My advice: if you’re on a budget, but still want to exchange gifts with someone, talk about setting a spending limit. If they’re in the same boat, but too afraid to bring it up, they’ll appreciate the consideration. For girl friends, if you can’t decide what to get, pick a theme & spread it out in different ways to compliment their styles, especially if you’re thinking of accessories. Sometimes it’s the thrill of the hunt that makes the gift giving all the more fabulous.
I’m currently inspired by the slow, but steady reorganization of my essential cosmetic tools like tweezers, brushes, sponges, & mini mirrors. For someone who takes the extra twenty minutes of time in the morning to do their makeup before going to work or out to brunch, I’m constantly replacing items like those previously mentioned. There’s no time like the present to get rid of overused tools so you can start the new year with a fresh face.
My newest favorite brand is Tweezerman. I recently won a pair of seemingly high-tech tweezers through a contest from InStyle magazine that I randomly entered, not suspecting that I’d ever win, but I’m very pleased & surprised with the results of using the tweezers. I’d relied on a Revlon brand, very inexpensive tweezer for a long time that just doesn’t even compare to the Tweezerman product.
Anyway, here are a few investment picks that will go a long way with Style Darlings as they prepare for holiday parties & family gatherings, all from Tweezerman. Any questions, comments, or suggestions are always welcome. Happy Holidays & Happy Styling!
