Well ladies and gents, it is that time of the year!! We are a week away from Christmas!! I’m so excited because I truly LOVE buying gifts for others! I think it is so much fun, and seeing their face light up is priceless. With that being said, today I wanted to share with y’all my favorite stocking-stuffers to give for guys and girls!
Stockings are probably one of my favorite Christmas traditions. Every Christmas morning my mom would wake up and make us cinnamon rolls. As she was making those I would start opening my stocking (I could never wait, I usually woke up at 1 in the morning to see if Santa came yet). Since I’ve gotten older I started making my mom a stocking of her own. Now every Christmas morning we wake up, make our cinnamon rolls, grab a cup of coffee, and sit down by the Christmas tree together to open our stockings.
Today I am going to share some of my favorite stocking-stuffers for her, him, and even your fur babies! We can’t forget about them! I mean if they are anything like my fur babies they are sure to be on Santa’s good list! (even if they were naughty)
Stocking-Stuffers For Her.
I’ll admit I probably spend way too much on my stockings, but it is just another gift all in itself. With that being said two of my favorite places to shop “For Her” are Sephora and Bath & Body Works. Together these make for the ultimate stocking stuffer, but don’t worry I put throw other items in there too!
At Sephora I ALWAYS get stuck at the cash rap looking at all of the travel size items! I love Christmas because they always have some adorable stocking-stuffers, that have some of the cutest packaging.
Guys aren’t usually too hard to shop for, but how many times do you get them the same things over and over. I’m hoping to help you find something different to stick in his stocking this year. Below are some of my favorite stocking-stuffers “For Him.”
Hey you, I’ve missed you! So with that being said welcome back darling! I’m so happy you’re joining me today. Today we are talking about one of my new found loves, the L’Ange Hair Tools!!
I am not typically the type of girl that does her hair often simply because of how long it takes me. I have long, thick, curly hair and tackling this mane typically takes me over an hour to do! I have a CHI straightener and I absolutely love it! It does an amazing job for me, but I wanted a wider straightener to help knock that time down! Even though I have naturally curly hair, I love curling my hair with a wand! I just love how it makes my hair look. I still have my very first curling wand that was probably $30.00 and she works wonders (BedHead curling wand), but I figured it was time for a new one (especially this nice of quality) so I treated myself to one (of each)!
I know what you are thinking, trust me I thought the same thing. I can’t afford this high end brand. Well lucky for you L’Ange Hair is having a BLOWOUT SALE! Yes you heard me right, a blowout sale! Don’t walk but run for these deals before they are gone! Wait not yet, I’m not done with this post silly!
I’ve heard of L’Ange before, but I just couldn’t bring myself to purchase their products for the price. Like I said earlier I still have my first ever curling wand from high school, so this was going to be a big deal for me! I thought about it for a couple days before purchasing the Titanium Ondulé 32mm curling wand in blush! There are so many amazing reviews and I truly understand why! The best part is, this curling wand is on sale for only $39.00 orginally $129.00! So you are saving more than you are spending! Sounds like a win-win to me!
Having long, thick, curly hair and trying to straighten it might as well be my part time job! (This is typically why I don’t straighten my hair.) I need a high quality hair-straightener to get this job done, and that’s exactly what I got by purchasing from L’Ange. I bought the L’Ange Le Gloss hair straightener in blush.
“Get your sleek, sexy styles or crazy-curvy curls with this salon-inspired, ergonomically-designed, titanium flat iron — Le Gloss is the hot styling tool that does it all! Its extra-wide plates mean that you’ll be able to straighten more hair at once and cut your straightening time in half! And if you have thick or coarse hair, you’ll be amazed at the Le Gloss’s ability to exceed your expectations. The extra-wide 100% titanium plates are embedded with infrared light technology that instills the hair cuticle with intense moisture and eye-catching luminosity. And its curved edges provide endless styling possibilities without sacrificing your strands.”
This beauty is on sale for $99.00 orginally $200.00! You are getting half off, and that’s what we call a win over here!! Unfortunately they are sold out of the blush but they still have the black and white one!
Okay, now you can run for the sale ladies!! If you do decide to purchase something from L’Ange or you already own something from them let me know by leaving a comment!

Okay okay okay, if you thought those were good, this next item was pretty amazing! The net item I pulled out of my box was the Violet Voss Pro HG Palette. I have heard amazing things about the pigmentation in these palettes so I am so excited to try this out!

One thing I love about subscription boxes is the chance to try out new products, especially mascara. I am the girl that will just buy the same one she loves, unless one is placed in her lap. Luckily for me I get them in my subscriptions like Boxycharm! This month I received the Lorac Royal Treatment Mascara.
“Treat your lashes like royalty with LORAC’s Royal Treatment Primer & Mascara Duo.

That’s everything from my December BoxyLuxe box ladies and lads. So were you keeping a talley on how much my box was worth? No? Well good thing I did for you! My BoxyLuxe box is valued at $386.00!!! That is AMAZING! BoxyLuxe is an upgraded version of the traditional Boxycharm that comes out once a quarter, similar to FabFitFun! The tradtional Boxycharm is $21 and is typically valued around $120.00. To upgrade to BoxyLuxe costs an additional $28, bringing you to roughly $50.00 for the box. So you decide… is it worth it?!
Welcome back girly, long time no talk! Too long that is! I swear my life didn’t used to be this crazy (at least I don’t remember if it was! I am so excited because today we are finally talked about my Winter FabFitFun Box!! Oh my gosh girls, was this an amazing box or what?! I couldn’t believe all the goodies in there this quarter! So I will stop blabbing on and dive into the box! I mean that is why you’re here right?
Alright ladies, there were so many amazing choices this season. What poison did you choose? Or were you more like me this season and couldn’t make up your mind so you chose both, or maybe even all of them?! Whatever you decided on I’m sure you will love it. Here are the options I chose…
The first decision for me was easy. I didn’t need anymore gloves or head wraps, and honestly hair products are just a no brainer for me. So I chose the Moroccan Gold Series Treatment Mask
The Moroccan Gold Series Treatment Mask helps to “Seal split ends, strengthen hair, and make your tresses more manageable with this fortifying blend of argan oil and keratin components” $49.00
“Tip: After shampooing, leave mask in hair for 5 to 7 minutes, then rinse.”
This product is so amazing and I have already started to notice a difference.
The next decision was not easy for me at all!! I absolutely love jewelry and girl we know I love my hair products. So I ended up getting two out of the three choices. OOPS!
“How gorgeous is this necklace? It’s a minimalistic yet statement-making piece with its dainty, silver-plated brass chain and chic, silver-plated circle pendant.” $49.00
This necklace is the perfect gift for any working woman’s wardrobe. Honestly a must have statement piece.
Like I said earlier I love my hair products so I HAD to HAVE this dry shampoo. Besides I have had a travel size of this, its pure gold! I mean it should be for $44.00
“It’s so easy to achieve lust-worthy locks. Use this sulfate-free dry shampoo to absorb product buildup, oil, and impurities while soothing the scalp and restoring strength and softness.” with the Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo
“Tip: Spray 8 to 10 inches from scalp, then massage into scalp until product is completely absorbed.”
The next option was sort of easy for me as. I loved make-up whole heartedly, but I had so many eye-shadow palettes already. I also didn’t really want or need over the knee socks. So I ended up choosing the Sherrie Mathews Acupuncture Jade Stone Roller.
I was pretty excited about this roller! I have been into anything and everything anti-aging lately!
“It’s no wonder this anti-aging beauty tool has been used by empresses for centuries. The jade roller helps stimulate qi (energy) and promotes a feeling of facial relaxation.” $45.00
“Tip: Gently wipe clean with an alcohol pad after each use.”
Next were the items that you didn’t get to choose, but FabFitFun chose for you! The first items you could receive were Bite Beauty lipstick, Chic & Tonic 4-piece coaster set, or Brooke Burke Body Sliders.
I loved getting lipsticks, but I love getting them more when I REALLY didn’t want coasters or body sliders lol! “A high-impact lipstick in a peachy-nude shade, this lipstick is handcrafted to deliver intense moisture and creamy wear.” $26.00
“Tip: Exfoliate your lips beforehand to create a smooth base for the lipstick.”
Okay, so that one was good! The next item I could receive was either Way of Will Elevate Essential Oil Set or the Anthropologie X Mer-Sea & Co. Body Cream. If you knew me, you knew I did not need anymore lotion OR body cream so I was hoping I got the essential oils!
I received the “Natural/Ivory” one in my box this season and I love it! “Cozy up with this woven throw, which features a stripe design and cool fringe detailing.” $49.00
“Tip: Hand wash cold and lay flat to dry.”
This season my box totaled (without my extra add on) $335.00 and all I pay is $49.99 every season! Are you ready to sign up for your own FabFitFun Box? With code ‘WINTERFUN’ you can save $10 off of your first box!! Just use the link below to sign up!
