I was especially spoiled this year by my amazing mom! She decided to gift me with some new beauty, fashion, and fitness products the 12 days before Christmas. I wanted share each of them with you to give you gift and shopping ideas, as lots of these brands are personal favorites of mine, not only because their quality, but because of the stories and people behind the amazing products.
One the first day, I received a Unlocked Jilly Necklace , which was designed in partnership with Jess Clarke. This brand is so special to me, as all Unlocked pieces are made by women transitioning out of homelessness. Additionally, each necklace comes with a bio of the Unlocked Maker, written by the woman herself. How amazing is that!?
Yellow the Label is one of my favorite fashion brands! It’s founder/owner is a dear friend of mine and all of their pieces are made in the USA . So it’s fashion that’s sustainable and ethical. This Yellow the Label Peace on Earth Sweatshirt is part of their recent Holiday releases . I love it especially because I recently performed a piece a to the song Peace on Earth as part of my company’s Home for the Holidays virtual performance!
Blender Bottle are my go-to solution for whenever I need a protein shake on the go. Plus, during performance season I always have one with me to drink post-show protein shake to ensure that I replenish my muscles. I was super excited to get a new Blender Bottle that is part of their Pro28 collection !
This Cloud and Victory Keychain is absolutely hilarious! All of the products that they make are funny, cute, and trendy. It’s the perfect way to add some humor and a pop of color to my keys.
If you are a loyal Ballerina Bows follower, then you know how I cannot live without adorable earrings to accessorize all my dancewear looks. So it’s no surprise that I was over the moon about getting this Kate Spade Stud Earring Set. Simple pearl and diamond studs give me options for classy and glamorous looks.
Day 6 didn’t give me six geese a’laying, but even better: a Pointe Brush Ladies of the Lake Journal . It is a great new place to write notes, thoughts, and dance choreography. The cover features Pointe Brush’s Ladies of the Lake Original Print but it also comes in Ladies of Fairytales or Ladies of Darkness, so you can pick your favorite.
7. Skin Care Products
I’m all about clear, healthy skin. These Skin Care Products: Paradox Blemish Patches , Beautanio Beauty Eye Gels , Daily Concepts Facial Brush , will definitely do the trick. In fact, the Daily Facial Dry Brush is a gentle dry brush that increases circulation and reduces puffiness while exfoliating your skin.
The eight day brought in my new Ipsy Makeup Subscription bag! These are the best, you seriously get such an incredible deal. Each month comes with an adorable makeup pouch filled with products that are customized just for you.
Did you know that if you write something done that you are far more likely to do/achieve it? That’s why every year I make sure to have a planner. This Kate Spade Agenda will definitely be the perfect place to keep my schedule and goals straight for 2021.
The tenth day brought me two awesome beauty products: Phase Zero Blush and NYX Studio Perfect Primer. Phase Zero’s products are cruelty free and vegan. This shade of blush is great for blending seamlessly onto your skin for a gorgeous natural-looking color. The primer, which I highlighted in My Favorite Everyday Makeup Favorites Blog, is the best drug store dupe for super expensive primer. It’s the amazing!
11. Melixir Face Oil
As someone who really values environmentally conscious products, I was thrilled to open my Melixir Face Oil. Their products are 100% vegan and sustainably made. It improves the elasticity of my skin without a greasy feeling. Also, it has anti-inflammatory properties which every dancer needs!
My last gift: a Impressions Vanity Mirror! It’s a high-quality mirror with a detachable base, adjustable brightness, a power supply, and a satisfaction guarantee.
12 Days Complete!
I definitely hope I gave you some insight into my favorite products and the reasons I support different brands and companies! They are all great ideas for presents for your best buds.
