SHOP: sterlingforever.com

WHY THIS WILL WOW YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON: 

The official collaboration and debut of this new collection is TODAY… DECEMBER 1, 2016. Such a bright way to close out the year and gift your best friend, colleague, sister, mom or aunt something whimsical, stylish and informative too!  My favorite on-line jewelry retailer Sterling Forever joined forces and is collaborating with the nail color astrology pros at Enamel Diction to curate personal jewelry collections based on your zodiac sign. Each month, you'll receive an astrology reading along with the hand picked pieces inspired by your cosmic destiny. And if you're ever heading out to Los Angeles… one of the most memorable experiences is to book a 15 minute color analysis or 30 minute color scope session with Rose Theodora, Enamel Diction's resident astrologer. It's so fun to look up your astrology sign and see how your persona and jewelry RX unfold relative to your birthday. It's also fun to shop the other signs of the Zodiac too.  It's everything from rings, to necklaces to earrings to bracelets to on trend chokers! 

UNDER $10, GREAT GIFTS & STOCKING STUFFERS FROM 2 TOP BRANDS!

NEUTROGENA BODY OIL

PRICE: $9.99 / 8.5 oz. 

SHOP: Neutrogena.com and drugstores nationwide

WHY IT'S A GREAT HOLIDAY GIFT: Neutrogena® Body Oil has a light sesame oil formula that leaves skin soft and locks in moisture, especially in the rough winter, colder months. It's lightweight and absorbs quickly, with no greasy after-feel. Perfect for moisturizing after showering or shaving. Bonus Tip: You can even add a few drops in the tub for a moisturizing bath.

NEUTROGENA NORWEGIAN FORMULA HAND CREAM  

PRICE: $4.99/2.0 fl oz.

SHOP: Neutrogena.com and nationwide at food, drug and mass merchandisers

WHY IT'S A GREAT HOLIDAY GIFT OR STOCKING STUFFER: Neutrogena® Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream is clinically tested to help heal dry skin - even the worst dry, chapped hands - and provide lasting relief. Fun Fact: Norwegian Formula® was originally developed in Norway for Arctic fishermen who needed to protect their own hands from some of the coldest, harshest weather, so you know it works. And I just have this thing about gifting friends, colleagues and family hand cream… It's a subtly, classy, thoughtful gift. It's one of those things people are always reaching for on a trip or a very cold, dry day and realize they don't have. So you look like a hero with this one!

HARD CANDY COSMETICS

PRICE: Amazing range from $1 to $19.99!

PACKAGING: Dear Hard Candy: YOU win the holiday packaging award! Who needs wrapping paper? Save a tree everyone… It's so savvy how your holiday beauty collections come prepackaged in fun boxes, in makeup bags, with lots of bows AND some of the packaging doubles as ornaments so we can hang makeup on a tree or fireplace mantle for an added dose of glamour. Great job!  Love… Stacy

SHOP: Walmart & Walmart.com

WHY IT'S A GREAT HOLIDAY GIFT & STOCKING STUFFER FOR WOMEN & TEENS: Hard Candy is an iconic brand!  It's been helping us doll up since 1995. It's synonymous with high quality, pigmented colors with totally cool packaging!  How much did you and do you love the nail polish bottles that come with snazzy cocktail rings?!? For holiday 2016 they thought of everything fun and whimsical, but very budget friendly! You have to get The Total Radiance Kit! It's under $20 ($19.88) and short of a kitchen sink it has in it...

  • 1 contour kit
  • 1 blush kit
  • 1 conceal kit
  • 1 smokey eye kit
  • PLUS the tins are reusable! And this is $19.88 so you can give the whole thing as one gift, or break it up and give the different palettes to different recipients. With other makeup brands you can't even get one palette for $20! This is 4!

The Seize & Sparkle Kit is $9.88 and the makeup bag alone which says "Keep Calm and Glow On!" is so cool and worth the price of admission. Inside the makeup bag you have a primer, concealer, 2 blushes & 1 brush for basically $10 bucks! 

The Nude & Smokey Kits are $4.88 and have 1 baked blush, 1 eyeshadow palette and 2 liquid eye liners

And lots of the lip glosses are retailing for $1 which you can't beat. If this brand were a man… I'd marry it!

THE BUY ONE GET ONE FREE BEAUTY DEAL OF 2016!

GAME CHANGER? I discovered Bellevue local and Master Esthetician, Natalya Rachkova, in 2015!  Natalya created this natural formula 25 years ago. She recently updated Mirakle Cream with modern science (peptides/hyaluronic acids, 2 of my favorite anti-aging ingredients) to bring to market. It's been blowing up since it's rebirth on TV and in one certain major, super hip retail chain who can't keep it on their shelves. 

WHAT IT DOES: 25 Cures and counting for the face and body, apply as frequently as needed: Reduces fine lines and wrinkles, extremely moisturizing, calms rosacea and eczema, firms tones and tightens skin, reduces hyper pigmentation (dark spots), increases luminosity, excellent make-up primer (recently used at the Grammys) and many other healing benefits. It's a "hero" catch all, multi-tasker that makes a genius stocking stuffer in either of the 2 sizes for the beauty junkie who thinks she's tried it all!  

INGREDIENTS: Aloe, Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Algae, Sea Buckthorn, Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter are the "stars!"

NATALYA IS LOCAL:  And available to work with you directly for a facial or you can purchase a gift certificate for whomever in your life is a facial enthusiast. You have a skincare legend right here in Seattle, trust me, have her evaluate your complexion!  Look on the home page of this web site for a link to her beauty services.
