Monthly Beauty Favorites | November 2015

Though I've been trying lots of new products in the last month, I don't think I'm necessarily ready to call any of them favorites. I have found several lovely new products that have been rocking my socks lately and I thought I'd share them all with you.

Gift Ideas for Romance Readers

Shopping for a book lover can be a bit difficult at times. On the one hand, you could probably just give them an Amazon gift card and call it a day, but that can seem a bit lazy. If you know someone's TBR pile is already a mile high, you might not want to give them yet another novel to add to the list (and risk having it be something they aren't even into). Sometimes you just want to give those quirky, fun trinkets that put a smile on someone's face. I've put together a list of things I think a fellow romance reader might enjoy receiving this holiday season. Keep in mind that there are many different kinds of romance readers in the world, so I've tried to capture different aspects with different items. I've even got some things thrown in that a general book geek would enjoy. Though some of the items are very straight-forward in their bookishness, some were chosen more for their spirit and the fact that I think certain romance lover would enjoy them. I've broken up the gifts into several different categories to make the guide a bit easier to navigate.

The In-Between Clean

I recently purchased the Sonia Kashuk Brush and Sponge Cleanser thinking it was a spot cleanser that I could just spritz onto my brushes and wipe clean. Let's just say there's a reason you should always fully read labels before purchasing. The spray is actually a cleanser that needs to be applied to damp brushes and washed out like a traditional cleanser. Womp womp. Though it didn't work in the way I had expected, I've found the perfect way to use it.

Cris Reads: DIRTY DEEDS (Mechanics of Love #3) by Megan Erickson


Alex Dawn is saying no to men. No to bad relationships, disappointments, and smooth-talkers. Focusing on her family and her job at Payton and Sons Automotive keeps her mind occupied and her heart content. She doesn’t really miss a man’s touch, until one night, one shows up with the body of a god and a voice from her dirtiest dreams.

L.M. Spencer is only in Tory, Maryland, to scope out the town as a possible site for one of his company's hotels. The British businessman didn’t expect his car to break down or to find the hottest little American he’s ever seen holding a tire iron, piercing him with bright blue eyes.

They agree to one hot night, one dirty deed to burn out the chemistry between them. But from their first kiss, Alex can’t stop saying yes to this man. And when Spencer’s company threatens everything she cares about, they must make the choice to stand together or apart.

Beauty Stocking Stuffers Under $16

My favorite part of a Christmas gift to shop for (and sometimes even to receive) is the stocking stuffer. It's those sweet little extra trinkets hidden away in your stocking that can often be the most fun or useful items. I've put together a list of some very affordable little beauty kits that would make an amazing stocking filler. These are also great options if you just need a small gift for someone or are participating in a White Elephant or Secret Santa exchange. Apart from the mini value kits I've also found some individual items that I've either tried and love or think are would make a great gift.
