Welcome to Blogmas Day 1!

The Christmas season is upon us!! I know many people start their Christmas festivities right after Halloween passes, but I personally prefer to wait after Thanksgiving. The closer I get to Thanksgiving, the more tempted I am to listen to Christmas music though! Anyway, today I wanted to share a giftguide for the beauty lover’s in your life. There are plenty of these types of videos on YouTube that showcase gift sets from Ulta and Sephora, so that kind of inspired me.

I included items that get great reviews, come from brands I love, and some of my favorites too!

Sephora Favorites: Glow For It

Literally this is a box full of a ton of highlights *heart eyes.* One of my best friends picked this up for her birthday in November and I think she loves it! Lots of fan favorite highlights from Sephora!

Violet Voss x Nicol Concilio

I have heard nothing but great things about Violet Voss shadows and the colors in this palette are gorgeous!! Major heart eyes!

Clarisonic Set

Has been on my wishlist for years!

Stila Liquid Eyeshadow Set

Love these!! Can’t go out at night with some type of Stila sparkle on my eyes. I always get the most compliment when I use these! Read more about it from my Makeup Holy Grail post

Versace Bright Crystal

My FAVORITE perfume. I’m always too poor to afford the bottle and I’ve gone years without the rollerball. BUTTT Santa, aka my mother, may or may not have picked this up for me!

Morphe Face Brush Set

I love Morphe brushes so much! Great quality at a low and reasonable cost. Best part is there are a lot of influencers that have Morphe coupon codes. Use your favorite YouTuber’s or google one!

Laura Mercier Illuminator

Looks soo pretty and I’m a sucker for how it looks in the compact!

Beauty Blender Set

A must in any makeup lover’s collection! Unlike any other makeup sponge.

Touch in Sol Eyeset

I’ve heard a lot of good reviews about these! I really want to try some and now’s the perfect time with this set.

Tarte Magic Star Palette

I just love Tarte Palettes, and I’m sure this will be another great one!

Thanks for reading and make sure to come back for Blogmas day 2!

See you soon! xoxo

Anyway, I plan to end my blogmas on Christmas Eve with a GIVEAWAY, yes, a giveaway. I’m so pumped!!

Can’t wait for you to come back tomorrow!! Also please pray for me I have exams this week :'(

Happy Holidays and sorry for going missing, school happened 😭

So why are guys sooo hard to shop for? Luckily I have avoided having a boyfriend during the holidays up until this year. I have always struggled when it came to shopping for my dad too. What do you get the man that likes expensive, techy gadgets when you want to stick to a budget.

So I have complied a list/ guide to really get your creative present juices flowing. My dad has had a brief beer making journey so I thought this beer glass would be soo cute! It’s totally customizable and I got it for around $25, I’m sure he’ll love it.

I am planning on buying Jake, my bf a portable charger because that man can’t keep is phone charged. Actually as I’m typing, he is out partying with a phone that’s probably on 5%.  I also plan on getting him a cute man planner for when he comes back to school next semester, complete with pens and pencils!! I’m thinking this one??

The other items are just pretty neat gifts. I hate going out in the cold without gloves, especially when my hands are super dry, so these are perfect! Same with your toes, Jake has these and they are super cozy. I see plenty of guys and gals in these UGG slippersA wallet is also pretty great, especially a nice, genuine leather one. My dad has a Coach wallet and it has been around for awhile now. My mom had to get him a new one a few Christmas’ back because his was disintegrating! 😂 Maybe I’ll get Jake one for next Christmas!

Earbuds are perfect of working out, walking to class or studying. I personally think they are super necessary, and after having Beats, quality sure does make a difference! My dad is a lover of Bose, and I’m sure it’s because of the high quality sound.

Lastly, my friend Amur was talking about these Comme Des Garçons x Converse. He told me he loved how they look, but he also just really likes the Comme Des Garçon brand! I think they’re cute, I want them too!

Anyways.. I hope this helped inspire some Christmas gifts for the men in your life, I know creating this post definitely helped me think of the gifts that I’ll actually be giving.

Come back Wednesday for 12 Days of Blogmas! A new post every day until Christmas Eve, with a possible Holiday surprise!

more fun pieces listed below, all relatively inexpensive!

Why hello there, I’m back with another cute friend. This is Tori and honestly this post was supposed to go up like a year ago…I don’t really know what happened. Anyway, I personally thought this outfit was super cute. It’s an easy go to and perfect for fall! Also I feel like this is a perfect day to night outfit, you can always spice it up with a fur vest or a fun bag for going out!

On another note, I’m so excited to go home for Thanksgiving!! I can’t wait to work at the Nave {where I’ll be making bank, as opposed to this little campus job} and catch up on some blog work. I’m leaving on Tuesday which I’m kind of annoyed about. My douchebag econ professor purposely moved our exam to that Tuesday so no one would skip. Annoyed isn’t even the word, but oh well. Hope you guys have a fabulous weekend!
