Action packed gifts this Christmas! 

Hi ladies! 

What is a better gift to give someone , then the gift of fitness. We all know how important it is to stay healthy, but giving gifts for motivation is a great way to help someone special start off the new year! 

I have some great Action packed gifts in mind. You could give one of these to that crazy fit friend of yours, or give a sense of motivation for that someone. Everyone loves a gift that they themselves don’t have to worry about buying, or dread buying for themselves. 

One item that is at the top of my list is Lululemon capris, which are easy to move in, and on top of it, very comfortable. I truly believe that you can not buy one thing there that isn’t comfortable.  


A great buy this season for anyone to use is the Fitbit bracelet. This is an excellent gift for keeping track of the time, steps that you take daily, and so much more. They come in many different colors, and can either be bought for a man or woman. They really do come in handy.  

DDo you have that yogi friend who absolutely can’t miss a yoga class? Try picking up a great yoga mat with a cover for him or her. You can give them the most out of their yoga workout, by investing in a really great mat, with a handy strap. What yogi doesn’t want to go prepared?  


What about your favorite girlfriend or mother who absolutely loves a good comfy pull over? Athleta makes great pull overs to wear to your workout, and they even can be also worn as a wardrobe staple. These are all great gifts for your action filled fitness friends, or you family members who need a little motivation boost!  




A brush of gold

Hi ladies!

I am loving all the sparkles, and gold this season. Your seeing it everywhere from shoes, to clutches, to the super cute gold sequin dresses. It puts you that much more into the holiday spirit, don’t you think?  One look that has really caught my eye this season, is the brush of gold eye shadow , and would look great on anyone for their holiday party.

It can be really tricky using a sparkly color on the eye, versus your everyday nude colors. You will not get a natural look with this color, so if you are going for something more bland, then this color may not be for you. The trick to using a gold shadow is not over doing it. It does not take a lot, for this color to go a long way. charlotte tilbury has wonderful metallic, sparkling shadows that will stay on for hours without creasing. The proper usage before applying these type of shadows is to use a good primer before hand, such as urban decay primer, which is really one of my favorites. The ultimate goal of a primer is to condition the eye, so that the shadows do not crease , and the shadows stay on for multiple of hours. Its like any other conditioner.

Make sure to always use the proper eyeshadow brush, so that you can shake off any excess shadow, and it doesn’t end up on your cheeks. You would not like going out with gold glitter all over your face. I’m sure it has all happened to us atleast once.  Try a new look this season. Its a gorgeous one!FullSizeRender (77).jpg
