Splendid Holiday Gift Sets For Women and Girls

          Over the past several months I've been a busy little elf hunting around for lovely gifts to celebrate the holidays. I am so excited to share my findings with you. The following gift sets range form $5 to $36, and are amazing quality. I have tested all of these products and highly recommend them all.

          The first set is a 5 pc wet n wild mega last nail polish set that comes in a cute little bag. I love the quality of these polishes, and the application. They have a wide brush that make painting nails a breeze.

          Bite the bullet( muted lavender), Through the grapevine( pinky purple), Candy-licious(bright pink), Sugar coat(sheer light nude), Break the ice(glitt                                        ery white). This set is avalible at drugstores for $5.

          Muppet Mini Nail Polish Collection by OPI. The Muppets have been absolutely everywhere this season. This adorable set comes with 4 mini versions of their bigger collection. The packaging is so cute, and the colors are right on time with all the latest trends. You get a mixture of cream, glitter, and metallic polishes.

          Wocka wocka( a berry red), Excuse moi( a girly pink with rainbow glitter), Designer de better( a silvery tin foil color), Warm & Fozzy( a bronze with pink micro glitter). I bought this on amazon for $12. I also did a video on this collection.

          I am a huge fan of Buxom lip gloss. I was so thrilled to get this Party Central set. This lip gloss is so smooth, and feels so good on the lips. They are plumpers, so when applied you'll feel a little minty tingle. It's not painful, it just perks you up. The colors in this set are varied, 3 glittery and 1 creamy.

          Jackie( a creamy pinky nude and my favorite), Olivia( a sheer cherry sparkle), Katie( a light shimmery princess pink), Alexa( a sheer sparkly magenta). I bought this set from bare minerals for $28.,default,pd.html

          Another awesome set from bare minerals is their Pretty Amazing lip color set. This product is so interesting. Not quite a lipstick, not quite a gloss. This buttery smooth creamy product feels amazing on, and lasts a really long time. This set comes with 2 creamy opaques, and 2 creamy sheers. While the buxom set is more for a night on the town, this set is more for daytime. And the applicator is awesome.

           Savvy(rosy tan), Confidence( Pink Berry), Sass(nude shimmer), oomph(barely Pink). This set was also $28.,default,pd.html?start=2&cgid=BM_SUB_UNDER_30

         I also did a video on the above 2 collections

         Philosophy Sweet kisses and Merry Wishes. This set comes with 4 4oz 3 in one shower gels, and 4 coordinating lip glosses. All of these in delicious holiday flavors. The 3 in 1's are a triple duty product(thus the name). They are shower gel, shampoo, and bubble bath. These are so incredibly wonderfully scented. When you are in the shower the scent engulfs you. It really makes showering fun.  The product itself is creamy and feels good on the skin, but honestly the best thing about them is the intoxicating smell. The lip glosses have sheer pigmentation, and look beautiful on the lips. They are a bit sticky, but still comfortable to wear. They are flavored and scented. Honestly I love these because they can give me a little dose of what I experienced in my earlier shower.

          Pomegranate Bubbly the scent is a fruity champagne, and the lip color is a pale sparkly wine.

          Pink Sprinkles Funnel Cake is like a frosted yellow cake with a hint of strawberry. The lip color is a sheer frosted sparkly  pink.

          Peppermint Bark The scent is a dark cocoa with a hint of mint. The lip color is a sheer crimson.

          Egg Nog the scent is a spicy vanilla and the lip color is clear. Okay I must admit that I was not thrilled about this one at first since I'm not a fan of egg nog. I was so pleasantly surprised. It smells so delicious, and is one of my favorites <3 This set is $36 from sephora

          Philosophy Candy Cane Trio This set is the perfect gift for a grab bag, secret santa, or co worker. It is a 3 in 1, lip gloss, and a body lotion all in an adorable round box. All the products are great, and smell delicious. This is straight up peppermint.

           Sold at sephora for $22

          And now for a little shameless promotion,

      Yam Yamz & Friends " Missing Daisy" This book was illustrated by me, and tells the story my chihuahua Yam Yamz who wakes up to find his little sister missing. He has to solve the mystery with the help of the rest of his friend's.

          This book is available at, it is on sale now for $8

          I hope you will find this blog post helpful. I'm sorry about the sideways pictures lol. I figured it was better to have them this way than not at all.

                                                                      Happy Holidays
                                                                              <3 Jen
