I’ve been cultivating a FAVORITE THINGS list for the past 4-5 years and this year is no exception. I normally share things that I fell in love with this past year and recommend to others who are looking for UNIQUE gifts for their friends and family members or even Secret Santa (you know, for those who participate in that sort of thing). So without further adieu, here are my TOP 10 FAVORITE THINGS of 2015 . . .
Do you remember when I told you how much I loved TAJJ cosmetic’s lipsticks? Not just the vibrant and glorious shades, but the consistency and the creaminess of the products and the fact that I’ve never used a product quite like it before? I even made a YouTube video about it [TAJJ Cosmetics Deja and Chic Lipstick] I’m not the type to knock other brands, but I will say that’s why TAJJ is on my favorite things list! Grab a couple of shade, heck grab all the shades. You won’t be disappointed! At $15 these are perfect for self-gifting! | TAJJCosmetics.com
Everyone who knows me knows that I’m a clutch lover and if they don’t they should. This here is a long standing product that’s been on my list for years. Well, at least 2 years. Love Cortnie was a blogger who created her own brand and has been featured in popular magazines including LUCKY to name just one. I love the spotted pony hair, it’s so soft and supple and it’s the perfect size to go anywhere you want to take it. From $90-160 this is something that she is certain to thank you for again and again. | LoveCortnie.com
Day Three Bath & Body has always been one of my favorite brands. They have so many delish products. This milk bath is a must have. They help soothe, itchy dry skin, soften dry skin and smooth bumpy, irritated skin. They are filled with Milk (cleopatra knew) and a combination of botanicals, like Lavender, Rose petals, Calendula flowers, chamomile and more! For $7.50 each you can splurge on several combinations. | ShopDayThree.
Every single year a book makes my list and this year is no different. Prayer is my weapon of choice and when Liela Marie Fuller sent me a copy of “Don’t Stop Knocking, Don’t Stop Seeking, Don’t Stop Praying, Don’t Stop Believing” I knew it had to be on the list. Even if you don’t know how to pray or get a prayer through for that matter this prayer journal will train you to write it down, attach a scripture and wait on the Lord and it even gives you a spot to write down the revelation. I love this! You’ll want to give it to everyone you love! | Amazon.com
I am a total cuff fan so it’s only natural that I featured this cuff again even though I already featured it in our His and Hers Valentine’s Day Gift List. I just ADORE So Excessive’s “Love Collection” of cuffs and it definitely fits the season. The collection is available in gold, rose gold and silver and you can choose from the open heart to the word “Love” spelled out. From $54-58 this is something that she is certain to thank you for again and again. Get brownie points guys! | SoExcessive.com
Deborah Lippman is a celebrity and fashion manicurist who has designed nail polishes for stars such as Lady Gaga, Scarlett Johansson, Kim Kardashian, Julia Roberts and Gwyneth Paltrow. Her shades range from nudes to glittery goodness. I love this shade called Candy Shop that is glittery in a bubble gum base shade. The other shade is Mermaid’s Dream and definitely catches the essence of the sea with flecks of sparkle. From $7.50 to $18.00 per bottle, these premium nail lacquers are perfect for the girly girl in your life. Get them here and here.
As a natural girl I’m always looking for something creative to do with my hair and a cute way to tie it up and keep it out of my face. The adorable array of products by Silk Wraps are excellent for this purpose. I love the reversible pieces like the tie pictured here. If you’ve got a natural girl in your life she’ll love this product, just log on and pick out a pattern. There’s a polkadot tie too that’ll make you swoon. She has an array of sleep caps and other hair protection accessories too. Browse and shop. I guarantee you’ll love it. | SilkyWraps.com
