Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have’s #8: Keep them wanting more with Mary Kay!

Christmas201400021

I am SUPER impressed with all of Mary Kay’s holiday sets this Christmas. They’re fun, they’re pretty, they smell amazing. So many wonderful products to pick from – might as well grab them all!

I am BEYOND obsessed with their hand creams. Below I’ve tried the Vanilla Berry and Vanilla Mint – both smell good enough to eat! The cream smooths over your achey/wintery hands and does the trick immediately!

Above we have their Shower gel and Body Butter – and the set comes in an adorable tin. It’s the gift that comes in a gift box! Perfect! Done and done!

Erin’s Christmas Must-Have #10

 

It’s that time of year again. Jocelyn and I countdown 10 of our favorite things perfect for spoiling someone on your list. The hard part is picking only 10!

This year I had to start my list with a showstopper. I originally thought this would be a good gift for my sister in law but I love it so much it might be a Christmas gift for me.

First thing about this necklace is its simply beautiful. It was one of those items you open and just can’t stop staring at. I love the long length its adjustable and works with so many looks. I have worn this out a few times and it gets lots of compliments.

And on top of being a beautiful necklace I would wear just because this little locket holds fragrance beads! The lockets comes with three different great scents Japanese Agarwood, Tuscan Fig and French Clary Sage. I can’t decide which fragrance I love best and found mixing them has been my favorite way to wear.

This necklace would make a great gift for any lady on your list, trick will just be remembering to wrap it and hand it over. Might be a good idea to get two.
