A Few of Our Favorite Things…Animal Instincts Edition

Happy Thanksgiving-eve, all! I’m so thankful for Thanksgiving, truly. Turkey, sides (really, I can’t just pick one camp) and of course, Black Friday preparation. I OWN my love of Black Friday shopping. I could write a thesis on how it’s actually one of the best days to shop all year. Stores are prepared for you! That said, I will not be a midnight shopper, but likely a 6am shopper. We’d be interested to know where you stand on the issue. Now, onto this week’s holiday gift picks!

  1. Amika Leopard Mini Ceramic Styler - Usually mini hair devices are major flops in the performace department, but not this styler from Amika. It’s essentially the same as their full-size version, just mini. It uses the same infrared heat and negative ion technology, and heats up to 400 degrees. Perfect for travel! Is that matching carrying case not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? The price is GREAT too at $25. Available at Sephora.
  2. Zoya Feel Collection – During the holidays, I’m all about sparkle, shimmer and rich colors on my nails. But come January, I want some warm and cozy neutrals to match my post-holiday mood. I would love to see any of these neutrals from Zoya’s new winter “Feel” collection in my stocking! The sampler would be a great buy so you can divide up for gifts (and keep a shade or two for yourself!) Available at Zoya.
  3. Madewell Furry Earmuffs - Adorable AND cozy. These are impossibly cute, and practical. Sadly, they are also getting hard to find. They’re sold out on Madewell.com, so if these are on your gift list too, find a store stat! Available at Madewell for $39.
  4. Stephanie Johnson Lima Purple Essentials – These are among the best makeup bags ever! And I’m enamored with the faux purple python finish of this collection. The ML Traveler is my go-to travel bag, and a gift I love to give. Available at Stephanie Johnson, $42-$82.

We’ll be back next week with more gift ideas. Happy Thanksgiving to all, and a “good luck” if you too venture out on Black Friday!

  1. [...] makeup bags are the best! Especially at a 40% discount. The Lima Purple Essentials are one of our holiday gift picks this year! Gifting beauty is so much fun — take a makeup bag, fill it with some beauty [...]

    These “animal instinct” suggestions are all amazing, but I saw a pair of earmuffs that look exactly like the Madewell ones at Payless for $12! Such a bargain, hopefully they still have them so other people reading can get them if they are interested.
