I love rounding up some of my favorite things every year around Christmas time. I discover new things throughout the year that I just can't wait to share with you. They range from home decor down to beauty picks. This year, I found sooo many things I just love! This roundup also doubles as a great Christmas gift guide. I own and have tried everything on this list. So, if it made the list, it's a five star review from me :)
I started wearing magnetic eyelashes a couple of years ago, just off and on. Mainly for special occasions. I then realized how much of a time saver they were, and started to wear them daily. I loved one brand for awhile until they 'improved' their design. I stopped buying them since they didn't fit my eyes anymore. I have tried some random brands from Amazon that I hated. Then I found one brand that I have loved for over a year and half now. These lashes are from Silly George. Weird name, but great lashes! I've tried all three of the kinds they have to offer. I love the "originals", but the "dailies" are good for every day use. The "drama" ones were a little much for me. They offer a couple of eyelash things on their site, but the ones I love are the dual strip magnetic lashes. You can find them on their website, and sometimes on Amazon.
AirMoji by MojiLife
I shared this little device with you all a few months ago. I love this thing. I don't buy candles any more or air freshener. This thing pumps so much yummy good smelling stuff into the air, and the scents to pick from are amazing. They have their Christmas fragrances out right now...and let me tell you. Have you ever stepped into a Home Depot or Michaels, or whatever store, that have thousands of cinnamon pine cones in bags. And you think to yourself, I need that in my house. Then you grab one measly bag, bring it home, and your house doesn't smell anything like the store? Well, I got you covered....without spending gobs of money on thousands of pine cones :) The Cinnamon Cheer is what you need ... it's what I have, and my whole house smells like I'm living on a cinnamon pine cone (in a good way). They also have Holly Berry, I'll Be Home (my next fave! It's like Christmas morning), and Christmas Tree. Besides all their other scents, this little device is the best thing since.. well, candles and hot wax. Actually, it's way better than those since it has no hot wax or flame, and is cordless and programmable. Plus, the scents last for weeks. I just put an I'll Be Home in my car that I have had open for about 4 weeks, and my car smells oh so good. I can go on and on about these things...you can see my full on review at this link >here<.

Recessed light chandeliers
This product from Worth Home has saved me a ton of money from converting my recessed lighting into hanging pendants. They offer a great selection of pendants that just screw into your existing recessed lights...just like a light bulb, but with a big long cord to something beautiful! I have one in my bathroom and one in my dining room. I'm wishing I had more recessed lights, so I could change them all out! They are available online through Amazon and I have seen some on Home Depot's website.
Josie Maran Whipped Argon Oil
I don't know how to describe this lotion, besides it feels like butter going on your skin and then melting away leaving an amazing scent and softness. Like, this stuff is legit. It's amazing and I could bathe in a whole tub of it. They offer multiple scents. This is one of those things you get for that person that is hard to shop for. You can find the selection here.
Wool Dryer Balls
Sounds normal and boring, but I didn't know what I was missing until I found these. I randomly saw someone post about how much time these wool dryer balls save when drying their clothes. Then I looked them up and checked out more reviews. I swear, am I the only person who had never heard about these things?! They cut drying time, they replace chemical laden dryer sheets, they help reduce wrinkles and static. Our dryer is a bit old and takes it's time drying things. These balls have helped so much in speeding that up! They are extra large and come in a pack of six. I throw all six in my wash every time. You can get them here.
Alex and Ani bracelets
I received my first Alex and Ani bracelet a few years ago from my in-laws. It as something I didn't know I wanted. I wasn't a bracelet person back then, but my jewelry usage is cyclical. Since then, I wear bracelets almost every day and my Alex and Ani bracelets are always in the mix! They have such a great selection for all occasions. You can see them all here.
Blowfish Bilocate Boot
I'm throwing a little fashion your way. I saw my sister-in-law wearing these boots last Christmas and fell in love. I had to get a pair for myself. They are by far my fave pairs of boots...and that's saying a lot since I own like 50 pairs :) I'm tall, just under six foot, and this heel isn't too big that I feel uncomfortable like a giant. They are comfortable and are super cute with most outfits! You can get them here.
If you have been following me and reading my blog for awhile, it's no secret I love blankets and that I love turkish towels. I totally use them as light weight blankets. They are great for style, great for summer, great for towels. And they come in some pretty great colors and patterns. About a third of my 'blankets' are turkish towels. They are a great, inexpensive way to add layers to your home. You can see a huge selection of them here.
Leather Moroccan Floor Pouf
This leather pouf has been one of my favorite finds this year. I love the character it has brought into my house. Plus! It's a perfect place to put up my feet, sit on for additional seating, or rest against. It has survived my dog and children the past months. It is beautifully crafted and handmade. The color and stitching are outstanding. I know there are a lot of leather poufs out there, but this is one I can vouch for! You can find it here.
Ruffle Skirt Bedspread
I have always loved the look of long bedspreads that touch the ground. They tend to be super expensive, so when I found this one, I snatched it up real quick! Now to look at the price, I freak out a little bit. I paid more than double and thought it was a good deal! Now it's like they are giving them away. I just love how it transformed my bed. It too has held up quite well over the past year between my husband, kids, and dog. It is due for a dry clean though. That's the only downside. But, if you keep care of it, you don't have to do that very often! You can get one for yourself here.
Hope you found some inspiration in this list! I feel like nothing on here is way overpriced. If I was a girl, and I am, and I didn't own any of these, but I do, then I would be so happy with getting them all for Christmas :) Heck! I wouldn't mind getting them all again even though I own all of them! ha! :) What's your favorite thing or gift idea to give during the holidays for those who are a little hard to shop for?
