It’s so very early to worry about the gift giving season isn’t it? But I really want to get a jump start on Gift Giving Guides this year and one particular guide that REALLY needs an extra early preview is my Unique Guide to Gift Giving via Etailers.
I love Etailers ummm wait scratch that….I’m addicted to Etailers. What are Etailers? Etailers are basically smaller shops or homegrowns as I refer to them. It’s normally run by a single person sometimes two and products are handmade in most cases from scratch. These products include bath and body goodies, perfumes, perfume oils, and in some cases even cosmetics. I love purchasing gifts from Etailers because it makes the gift giving experience really unique and special because seriously some of these items just can’t be purchased in any store or shop you’d find at the mall.
I’m also starting this guide a little earlier because many of these shops are popular and they sometimes have a lead shipping time which takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks (or more) to get your items since they are being freshly made. I’ve personally shopped from these stores myself however I can’t vouch for their shipping time so please if you’re gifting someone do take the shipping time into consideration prior to ordering. Again, this is why this particular gift guide is going up early.
In other news…
I’ll be doing other gift guides over the next month and into December. Hopefully you’ll find each of these guides a helpful way to discover some great presents for friends and family. If you have an idea for a particular guide I’d love to hear it, do comment and share.

Dear Makeup Gods,
How are you? Been ages since we chatted. Might I say I really didn’t love Ungaro for MAC but shhh don’t tell him k?
But thank you SO much for giving him a second chance to create something incredible with the new U by Ungaro Color Collection available from Avon.
Both cheap and gorgeous!
Me likey long time.
k, talk soon.
For some reason I have to clarify myself here…just a note…I never reviewed anything from the Ungaro for MAC Collection as I never hauled any of it. At the time Suite Array and Creamsheen had released and I ended up skipping Ungaro since most of it didn’t appeal aside from the stains….a press release and images plus my initial thoughts on Ungaro for MAC are available in a link within this post, hope this helps!
Yup, the House of Ungaro is busy concocting a brand new color collection for Avon that’s available shortly from Avon.
Jump for it!
Visions of Korres Sugar Plum Fairies drifted through my head last year. You know, I surely hope, that you hauled that set. It’s probably one of thee best sets Korres has offered to date. I actually have had the pleasure of speaking to the person who put it together, count her a legend in my book! It was one of my fav’s last year and if you don’t own it we can’t be friends no mores…..kidding…..I’ll give you a second chance to go haul it with a pretty little coupon code if you’re extra nice to me today!
Jump ahead to see what’s swirling through my head this year plus a great way to save some money by hauling some Korres!
Anyone a Priori fan girl? I’m actually not, I never tried it but recently it launched on Studio BeautyMix if you happen to follow the line.
It’s supposedly a cutting edge skincare brand that has clinical proven formulas with extraordinary anti-aging benefits. Ok, I wanna break that fountain of youth, buy me a ticket on board the Priori train.
You can log on to www.StudioBeautyMix.com to check out the line if you’re a skincare junkie or you’re just wanting to make a break for the border away from fine lines and other general old age skincare woes.
The collection is pretty expensive but when have you seen quality skincare cheap eh?
I’m thinking the Priori CoffeeBerry Radiance Eye Serum may make my eye cream world.
Anyone a lover?
Do educate the Muse on the joys of Priori!
Now the key to life, the universe, and everything has always come in a tin of Rosebud Salve for this Muse. It’s her universal savior for chapped lips, frizzy hair, cuts, nicks, rough elbows, knees, and legs, etc…etc….you see? It’s a cure all.
Problem is some of us weren’t loving the vintage style tin that forced us to dip around inside. Breeding ground for germs isn’t it?
Smith’s Rosebud Salve in a tube! Bless be! Our prayers have been answered for an easier way to apply our beloved salve.
You’ll get a better bang for your buck if you buy the tin but if you’re as anal about germs as I am you’ll absolutely adore having it in a tube form!
Available now from Beauty Habit for $6.
