Erin’s Christmas Must-Have Number 1!

 

 

What gift can be better than a great handbag? I have yet to meet a woman who isn’t always on the hunt for the next great bag. I am in love with the Emilie M handbag line, a great mixture of classic styles with contemporary colors. Any of these bags would make a great gift or give that special someone a gift card so they can choose their favorite.

I was given the chance to choose a bag to review and feel in love with the Shelly Frame Satchel. A beautiful black purse made of Spazzalatto patent leather. Spazzalato is known to be soft, maturing leather only available to the Monte Carlo crowd. Emilie M. bags feature all the same delicate contouring and soft touch without the price tag.

The large frame structure not only holds the bags shape but also makes it spacious inside. One main zipper closes the purse completely. I love how much it holds and the the versatility of the bag. It is only available as part of the Emilie M Fall and Winter line, so make sure you check it out for this holiday season!

Emilie M. Shelly Frame Satchel in Patent
The Shelly frame satchel is elegant enough for any evening event, yet functional enough for every day. Shiny spazzallato patent leather in unrelieved black or two-toned versions that pair taupe with black, olive or port accents make this bag an eye-catcher. Polished brass hardware, a contrasting striped interior lining and a zippered interior pocket make this bag both fully functional and exceptionally chic, while two phone slots allow you to convert from work mode to family mode at a moment’s notice. Stop letting your handbag drag you down, and opt for this sleek, sultry edition instead!

15.5″ x 7.5″ x 11.0″
Framed closure
Brushed gold hardware
Inside zip pocket and 2 cell phone pockets
Removable signature “M” medallion
Exclusive striped lining for Fall/Winter 2012

Erin’s Christmas Must-Have Number 2!

The Ultimate Holiday collection from Tarte Carried Away Collector’s Set.  

I love how unique Tarte’s collection is. The pattern and cute bag with a huge mirror and everything you need to do your makeup perfect for travel. And the products are great, the eyeshadows are great quality really pigmented, and easy to blend. The glosses are great they have a bit of mint to them and I love the satin finish colors. The blush looks amazing just the right amount of color without being overdone.

The best part of this kit has to be the genius packaging. The roll out makeup bag and all the eyeshadows stay put behind the mirror. There is a ton of space in the pockets to add your own items you want to carry. Such a great kit and it would be great for any makeup lover on your list that travels or even gets ready at the gym. Beautiful products all wrapped up in a convenient and cute case!

Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have #4!

I can’t think of a more-complete, more-perfect eye shadow set than the one I’m sharing with you right now. This absolutely gorgeous holiday set from bareMinerals comes with 10 Velvet Matte Eyecolors AND 10 Velvet Satin Eyecolors! That’s 20 eyeshadows in ONE SET!!! This HAS to make my top 10, seriously.

Let me take it slowly, so I can be sure you’re paying attention. You get 20 eyeshadows – which if you were to walk into a bareMinerals store would cost you $220 – for the insane price of $79! Are you freaking kidding?? You guys would die, I’m telling you… you would die.

Dress up in lush, plush, sinfully decadent color. This collection of bareMinerals® Eyecolors lavishes lids with the pure sumptuousness of velvet. Indulge in 10 velvet matte shades for a rich suede finish and 10 velvet satin shades for a soft luminous sheen. Luxuriously touchable and beautifully blendable, these hues can be mixed, matched and layered to create endless irresistible looks.

Collection includes 20 petite eyecolors:

(0.28 g / 0.01 Oz. each)

Velvet Blueberry Eyecolor (creamy navy)
Velvet Violet Eyecolor (plush lilac)
Velvet Pistachio Eyecolor (crushed mint)
Velvet Vanilla Eyecolor (warm ivory)
Velvet Strawberry Eyecolor (soft wine)
Velvet Mauve Eyecolor (matte mauve)
Velvet Green Eyecolor (matte green)
Velvet Charcoal Eyecolor (matte charcoal)
Velvet Espresso Eyecolor (matte espresso brown)
Velvet Taupe Eyecolor (matte taupe)
Satin Sterling Eyecolor (satin silver)
Satin Lilac Eyecolor (satin lilac)

Satin Mist Eyecolor (satin mist)
Satin Rose Eyecolor (satin rose)
Satin Sage Eyecolor (satin sage)
Satin Gold Eyecolor (satin gold)
Satin Caramel Eyecolor (satin caramel)
Satin Peach Eyecolor (satin peach)
I’m pretty sure holiday gift sets don’t get better than this one right here. It’s seriously like a foot long, and full of 20 shadows. That special person on your list won’t need to buy eye shadow for like 10 years! (That may be a stretch, but I don’t wear eyeshadow everyday, so it probably would last me 10 years.)

You’re welcome! (Do you love me?)
