12 Days of Christmas: Day 11

shopping for boys. that can often be the most challenging part of a christmas shopping experience. i think i’m easier to shop for than most boys are, and that’s because they either want some crazy-ass-expensive piece of electronic equipment (which, i totally want, too), or they’ve not got much of a taste for anything other than good food and cars. if you feel that way about a man you’re shopping for, then perhaps you need to dig a little deeper to find out what he’s really into. here’s a brainstorming list:

Introducing The Beauty Shop

just in time for the holidays, (and yes guys, i know you’re out there looking for presents for the ladies in your life), i’m introducing a new shop to xoxonettaP that is all about beauty! it’s full of things that i use and love, items that i’ve heard are the bomb and would love to review, and things all the ladies in your life will love to get their hands on.

Sephora.com, Inc.

so let’s talk a little bit about one of my favorite stores while you’re here … sephora. i’m partial to the one in times square. the really big one across the street from the walgreens, you know the one? the people that work there are phenomenal, and the products they offer i’m almost never disappointed. so, let’s talk about some of my favorite things from sephora.

 

this is something they call the “makeup studio blockbuster,” and they bill it as having a value of over $440. it’s priced at $49.50. i have one of these, and let’s just say, i’m never wanting for a new look, makeup-wise.

now, i don’t talk about my mom around these parts too much because she’s not really a fashion or beauty fru-fru kind of girl. i think i must’ve taken all of that from her when i was born or something. anyway, she has one of these things. it’s the clarisonic skin cleansing system. and she’s in love with it. she got so excited to see that sephora carried it’s corresponding products that i almost thought someone had switched my mom out with someone else …

magnetic nails are supposed to be the next hot jimmy jawn. so, if you’re sick of sally hansen press-ons and crackle nails, then magnetic polish is the new game in town. what does it look like? here’s a peek and a little explanation from geekologie.com:

and, just in case you’re a lady shopping for a gent (or a gent shopping for a gent), if he’s into fragrances, i’m loving this fragrance sampler that let’s him test out a whole host of different sniffs for the new year.

so, what’s it gonna be? see anything that tickles your fancy? and who are you having trouble shopping for out there? let me help you. i loooooove shopping for presents! i also want to hear about what your favorite things are from sephora.
