Glow ME Selfie Light, $29

The response to the Lumee, this Glow Me Selfie Light is a much less cumbersome way to give her the perfect lighting for a fabulous selfie. It’s a tiny little clip-on light with just as much powerful light centered around where you need it – ya face.

Dyson Airwrap, $499

Is it worth it? Yes. The answer is yes, if you can afford it. I received one of these as a gift, and I am straight LOVING MY LIFE in the mornings now that I have this tool. No, I am not being paid to say that. I have been whining about having a tool that both curls my hair while it dries it at the same time for.e.ver. And Dyson not only delivered, but they delivered with gorgeous results, and incredibly easy, fast results that I can literally do as lazy as I want and still look pretty fabulous.

Consider how much money you leave at the salon. Do you pay for blow outs? Do you pay for styling? This thing will almost guarantee you can keep all that money and you barely have to do any work. If it’s in your budget, get it for her. If it’s in your budget, ask for it on your list to go halfsies (like I did and got is super early, thank Jesus!). Because it’s worth it! Hopefully it comes back in time, ladies!

Marble Coasters, $29

For whatever reason, this is an item we can never seem to have enough of. They’re like socks. For whatever reason, they always seem to disappear or you think you have more than you actually do. And a cute set of sleek marble coasters like this are perfection. Handwritten names in gold add the perfect touch and prevent coaster theft mid-party!

Bluetooth Temperature Controlled Travel Mug, $150

For the coffee obsessed person in your life who’s always complaining about their java getting cold, this is THE gift. If you’ve been looking at the Ember Mug at the same price, you have to check this one out because while Ember might have better marketing, IMO Cauldryn made the product better. And in the end, isn’t that what it’s all about? Not only can you keep your Cauldryn mug hot via the app just like with the Ember, the Cauldryn also has attachments and options to brew coffee/tea, and grind beans.

As a coffee addict, I have to say that many options sound amazing. Whole bean is fresher, and in-mug refresh brews sound super convenient. In addition, the mug also has a blender attachment for shakes and smoothies. These guys are insane, and they obviously know what being trapped in the work environment is like for those without in-house refreshment options!

I love a good eye palette, and this one gets high marks. The BH Cosmetics Galaxy Palette includes 18 out-of-this world baked shades! These high pigment hues have a strong color payoff and a shimmer finish. And bonus: This can be used wet or dry. Yasss, just get it, girl.

Instant Pot, $80

I wasn’t really getting the Instant Pot craze until our friend came to stay with us and made dinner with one. And I immediately discovered I’d been cooking like an old-fashioned cave woman. While I’ve been over here antiquing it for 30 – 45 minutes over the stove like a vintage postcard, my friends have been throwing things in the Instant Pot for 10-15 and getting back to #NetflixAndChill, their workouts, or whatever. Sold. I’m sold.

Good Read: The Map of Salt and Stars by Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar, $16

In this fictional novel, we follow two Syrian women leading parallel lives almost 800 years apart. While Nour and her family are forced to flee conflict in modern-era Syria, she finds solace in the saga of Rawiya, who disguised herself as a boy to have the opportunity to apprentice under a mapmaker in the twelfth century.

Juicy Couture Mulholland Tweed Backpack

They slashed the price on this Juicy Couture tweed backpack, and I just can’t get over the athleisure meets the street vibe going on here. And when it comes to this particular brand, you can’t beat the price.

Rose Quartz or Jade Facial Roller, $16

I’ve grown to love using this tool, which helps stimulate the blood flow in the face to tighten and minimize the appearance of puffiness and under-eye circles. The cooling effect feels amazing and gives me noticeable results. The wide end is meant to be used on the lower portions of the face and neck, as well as the forehead, while the narrow end can get under the eyes and the narrow crevices.

Christian Louboutin Eyeshadow, $50

Nothing makes a statement like the Christian Louboutin packaging. Whether it’s the red soles peeking out from under your shoes, or the glass bottles with stately crowns housing rouge lipstick, it’s all about the presentation with Louboutin. And with the eyeshadow line, all that glitters is gold with their objet d’art gilded bottles. The ownership and experience is in itself is a bit exciting – much more than your standard set of cute colors. I’d take one Louboutin bottle over a set of Essies anyday. I mean, look at it. It’s art. And apparently it looks gorgeous on you. IJS.
