When it comes to gifts, I like to take my time in planning the perfect gift. I focus more in keeping the gift fitted for that person character and personality, that’s why I decided to create a box with personalized gifts for my cousin who’s getting married in few days. I mentioned before that I love and support handmade products, that’s why I love shopping on Etsy. Here are the stores I bought from and I would recommend if you’re considering buying similar items.
I found this store while searching for jewelry with real flowers because I was considering getting my cousin a four leaf clover necklace. I fell in love with the items I found on this store and I had to order, the seller is very helpful. The necklace came looking even better than the pictures displayed on Etsy, the details are mesmerizing and you can tell so much work went into creating this piece. I highly recommend the store.
I’m all for bath and body products, I love trying new soaps or scrubs. I was searching for a similar sugar scrub I got from MerLady box because I really liked those cubes before and I found this store that sold a mermaid themed sugar scrub but in a whipped form. I bought Mermaid Wishes and it looked and smelled delicious according to my cousin, it had glitter so it’ll leave your skin shining after use.
I wanted to get a personalized candle but I got intrigued with this store’s candles since the fragrance list had one named “Butt Naked”, I remember giggling while ordering it because it’ll be funny to see my cousin’s reaction. The candle arrived fast and it actually had a great scent, I already promised the seller to buy more from her because she was sweet and helpful when I ran into an issue with the shipping.
I bought plenty more items from other stores but those three stores were my favorite because the sellers were very helpful and kind whenever I send a private message to them, the items I received were in high quality state and I would highly recommend to anyone to check them out.
I got this mascara with ACW All Cosmetics Wholesale haul and it’s been my favorite ever since. It makes my lashes lengthy but also keeps the natural look, it also has a growth serum and it made my lashes longer and fuller within 2 weeks of use. I would definitely recommend it to anyone I know.
I got this cleanser in my Glossybox subscription box and I’ve been using it every morning, it became part of my daily skincare routine. I absolutely love how it leaves my skin, totally flawless and soft.
It’s been awhile since I last visited Bath & Body Works, I was interested to see the small little details they added for Halloween. They just put this huge banner of A Thousand Wishes fragrance to be the consumer choice of 2015 (2016 is almost done ?) Anyway I decided to try out the shower gel so the first item of this haul is:
Japanese Cherry Blossom Candle
I’ve always been a fan of Cherry Blossom scent so I instantly snatched this candle from the shelf. It has a beautiful calming scent.
Seaside Gardenia Candle This candle definitely has a melon scent because it’s the only smell I can recognize, it has a fainty smell and it’s quite calming. I bought the big one with 3 wicks because I honestly got hypnotized with the scent.
Hope you enjoyed this small haul of Bath & Body Works, any recent purchases you had ?
First of all can we just appreciate how amazing Dragon’s Egg bathbomb makes you feel, left my skin super soft. So here’s what happened, I left the bath tub faucet running till it was filled and ready to drop the Dragon’s Egg bathbomb in. After I did that, I lit up two of my favorite candles Lilac candle from Ikea and Black Vanilla Candle from Zara Home, and I closed the lights with a towel wrapped around me ready to get in the tub. That’s when my husband came home and needed the shower so I just left the bathroom for few minutes till he’s done but all the sudden I hear him calling me for something, he was already in the bath tub and was like “Now I know why you enjoy this” Dude that’s my spot.
So I really wanted to try The Crafty Kitchen but for some reason they close so early, so me and my sister decided to try it and it was almost 6, it’s also written that they close at 8 but nope they apparently close at 6 which made me a bit irritated.
So we just went to Mani’s because it’s my new favorite spot along with Nestle Toll House cafe of course.
For some reason this weekend it was a bit stressful than useful therefore the title of this post but I managed to make-do either way, I bought blasters from Bomb Cosmetics which I posted earlier. I should be panicking by now because I haven’t finished my Eid shopping yet but hopefully at the weekend I’ll be done .. I hope
Over the weekend I discovered an Instagram account of this lovely lady who sells Bomb Cosmetics products and I decided to try them out since I need to restock my bathbombs, so I contacted the lady and bought four blasters (I guess it’s basically a bathbomb in the end) a gift box (3 Premium Blasters Gift Pack) and Little Hotties box of ten wax melts. I haven’t tried them yet but I can say they smell so good, and also I noticed the blasters are well refined and it doesn’t shed like Lush bathbombs, the shapes are super cute as well.
