Gift Guide 2016 / One For The Beauty Lovers

Holiday Gift Guide 2016 - One For The Beauty Lovers

I have been very excited for this first of two gift guides this year. Mostly because there are so many awesome gift-appropriate bits and pieces this year… But realistically, these gift guides have been a great excuse to spend my days window shopping online. I couldn’t resist putting together a gift guide that included all things beauty – here are my top picks for 2016’s holiday season.
