Bath & Body: All things L’Occitane! I am IN LOVE with this company and on my next international trip I will be making a serious extra effort to visit one their SPA’s. I personally use two of their scents: Shea Butter Body and Hand Cream – I keep one in my car, at work, in my handbag and on my nightstand. I also use the Almond line: Shower oil, Supple skin oil and Milk Concentrate. LOVE!!! LOVE!!! LOVE!!! 😍

Accessories: I found a couple of wonderful scarves (Gucci, Banana Republic), a black card holder (Saint Laurent), a black Apple watch band (Casetify) and a gold sparkly pen (Swarovoski).

Skincare and Makeup: These two categories deserve a post all by themselves (stay tuned…) because I WENT IT! For the purpose of this post – gift ideas- I will just mention a fancy compact mirror (Chanel), lipstick (Saint Laurent) and Lila Eyeshadow Palette (Natasha Denona).

Are you still with me? Good! Because this is year FIVE (5) of Bri’s favorite things I am going to do a giveaway!!! The gift will be a Shea Butter hand cream – my absolute favorite!!! To enter, send me an email and tell me your favorite item from this year’s FAVORITE THINGS. The winner will be notified via email on Christmas Day! Good luck!!!!

National Lipstick Day

Today I’m traveling with no laptop and no agenda (on purpose) so I’m doing this post from my iPhone. #keepcalmspellcheckqueens 💁🏽

Today is National Lipstick Day! so I decided to share a few things with you: 1) my go-to lipgloss, 2) the ULTIMATE in lipstick treats and 3) an up-and-coming lipstick line that will make you go, hmmmm. 💄💋 So let’s get started!

My go-to, wear every day on top of any lipstick (or by itself) is actually called a lipglass, by Mac in Fantabulous <== that’s the name of the color. I order it online, at least two at a time ($20 each) and you will never catch me without it! There is no real dupe for this shade. #musthave

On to the ULTIMATE package deal: it’s none other than Lips and Boys by Tom Ford – a collection of 10 shades of lipstick, in a pretty little gift box. It will run you a cool $350. 🙄

Finally, let’s talk something new, Lip Whip – it’s a vegan, non-stick, no-smudge lipstick that only comes off with oil!! Swimming? No problem! Working out? No problem!! You can only purchase it online at the moment; but, they do have eye shadows and more. I will be trying this very soon! Check out the video below and follow their account on Instagram.

Happy National Lipstick Day!!!
