Gift Guide: Her

Gift Guide: Her

Happy Holidays! With Thanksgiving behind us, and Christmas coming faster than we know it, it's now the busiest shopping time of the year! And also the time of year when you fret over the perfect gift to get every sibling, parent, cousin, aunt, uncle, dog, mailman, and weird-relative-you-didn't-know-you-had. 

Well fret not! I'm putting together a two-part gift guide to give you the jump-start on those holiday presents! This, obviously, is the "her" section, where you can pull ideas for all the ladies on your list whether they be a significant other, family member, or your best gal pal!

June Wishlist

June Wishlist - Southern New Yorker

This month, I'm getting excited for light, glowy makeup, beachy hair, and bright, fun, summer clothing! 

Everything from J.Crew, naturally. 

Pale blues, stripes gingham, tassels, & bows! J.Crew's spring/summer line is the perfect mix of classic and trendy! My top favorites? This chambray shirt with Ryder pants, gingham slingback flats, and robins-egg-blue beaded tassel earrings. And if that's not enough, this gingham clutch adds the final punch!

Block Heeled Sandals

The perfect heel, whether short or tall, the block heel provides WAY more support than a spike, while being more chic than a wedge. Steve Madden makes an amazing assortment for any need (and in tons of colors!) My favorites are definitely the Irenee and Rizzaa sandals!

Super Glowy Makeup

Lately, my makeup has been all about that glow-factor. Pairing down on the foundation coverage and amping up that lit-from-within, healthy glow! Becca Backlight Primer is a cult-product and I'm dying to get my hands on this best seller! Right behind that, is two Hourglass bits, their new luminizing primer, and another cult-favorite, the ambient lighting powders! But of course, that natural, dewy glow can't happen without taking care of your skin, so......

Pixi Products

Pixi's raved-about Glow Tonic has catapulted it to stardom, but hype is building around a few of their other products as well! I'm particularly interested in their undereye brightener and glow mist!

Kiehl's Skincare

And finally, a far underrated brand that should be on everyone's bathroom counter, Kiehl's. I recieved a sample of their Daily Reviving Concentrate in my Birchbox this past month, and oh sweet mama, it's a miracle in a bottle. (bold claim, I know) Not only has my acne almost vanished, but the overall texture and brightness of my skin is noticeably much better! To the point where I have started occasionally going without any makeup on my skin! (which has not happened since the eighth grade) After seeing this miracle in action, I'm dying to pick up the cleanser, eye treatment, and whatever else I can get my hands on!



Currently Craving: October Wishlist

1. J.Crew Cape Jacket

J.Crew never ceases to impress me. This Fall, they came out with this wool cape in tan and black (I still can't decide which one I want more!) Capes are perfect for the chilly fall and look chic thrown over a dress and tights or jeans and a blouse!

2. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit (Limited Edition)

Hourglass has some of the most gorgeous face powders on the market, so when I saw all six of these flawless shades in one palette, I almost died! It's a limited edition palette though, so snatch one up before they're all gone!

3. Rebecca Minkoff Medium M.A.B. Tote

A girl can never have too many black handbags, and this Rebecca Minkoff is the perfect size and structure to handle everyday on-the-go life! Whether it's running off to class, work, or just out to brunch with the girls, the M.A.B. tote is good to go!

4. Clinique Color Pop Lip Color + Primer

I've raved about these more times than I can count. My current collection contains Poppy Pop, Punch Pop, and Cola Pop, and the next three on the list are Bare Pop, Fab Pop and Grape Pop. All of these lipsticks are extremely hydrating, stay on the lips like magic, and have vivid bold color that looks fantastic!  

5. Kate Spade Willa Flats

It's no secret that I love Kate Spade, and I live in black ballet flats, so these are a match made in heaven! Basic enough for everyday, but the leather bow and spade charm add a little fun!
