Gift Guide: Someone who has Everything || Neena

So today we have my lifestyle gift guide and this is one of my personal favorite guides this year so I'm
excited to share it with you! I always find guides like this are good for people who have everything.
Therefore, making them impossible to buy for so I thought I'd get together a bit of a random lifestyle
gift guide and included all stuff that I know I'd like and hopefully it will spark some inspiration!

Jewelry can be a winner, if you know the recipient well of course. I love these Forever 21 Chokers this
year. The packaging is really cute and they're only $3. What a bargain! Oasis also have a whole range
of lovely jewelry too which I'd definitely recommend checking out.

Clothing can obviously be risky business but if you know what the recipient will like or usually wears,
it can be a nice present for someone who doesn't usually spend a lot on themselves. However, some
clothing items that don't really go too wrong are: slippers, sweaters, pajamas, and shoes of course. Just
make sure you know their size! Underwear is also a lovely gift to receive. Victoria's Secret is of course
the dream place but places like Urban Outfitters have some lovely pieces in right now.

Things for the home are always usually nice presents too. Candles, ornaments, mugs, are usually nice
home presents. I know that these kind of things always make me happy, however boring they may
seem! This Anthropologie gold mug is what mug dreams are made of.

Accessories such as pom pom keychains,  phone cases, books, and stationery are always lovely gifts.
I love this 2017 diary from Chroma Stationery which has a quote of your choice printed on the front
cover. It has colouring in pages, motivational quotes and loads of room for plans, to do lists and much

Finally some fun presents. I still think a Fuji Instax Camera is a good buy. Who doesn't love Polaroids?
I loved receiving mine last year and I know it's on my sister's wishlist so they're still a sought after
present. I also love this funny water bottle from Prezzybox. It's totally me and I'm sure we all know
someone who loves pizza more than exercise and life.

I think that’s everything! But hopefully this has given you a few more ideas if you were stuck for
present ideas :)

What do you buy for people who have everything?

Thanks for reading!

Gift Guide: Stocking Fillers || Ruby

I have something to admit. I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet. I know, I know. I just can't seem
to get my act together, and to be honest I haven't really seen anything for anyone so I've not been feeling
inspired. However, hopefully if you've been feeling like me, our next few posts should inject some
Christmas shopping inspiration your way. Today I am kicking off our gift guides!!

I'm genuinely a little excited about getting these gift guides out. I have been planning them since the
beginning of November and I am so happy with how they've turned out. So today, I thought what better
way to start my gift guides than with a Stocking Fillers guide.

Opening our stockings has always been one of my favorite things about Christmas. As a kid we'd pile
into Mom and Dad's bed first thing and open them and these days we still wake up super early, go
downstairs, and sit  in our pajamas and open them with Christmas music playing. A good stocking to me
is one that is full of a mixture of things. Cute bits, chocolate, everyday essentials and a couple of slightly
bigger presents. Of course, they don't have to be expensive, and as I always say, Christmas isn't about
presents at all but hopefully you'll like these stocking fillers!

So the majority of my picks are beauty based, but some other none beauty ideas would be; chocolate,
chocolate coins, candy canes, tissues, nail files, socks, key rings, candles, etc.

So let's start shall we?

This NYX Warm Neutrals Ultimate Shadow Palette is so nice and so affordable, too. as well as these
Colorburst Matte Balm Lipsticks from Revlon, and this amazing Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Duo.
The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara  is so good and the packaging is perfect for stockings.
Soap and Glory have some amazing gifts as always, and this Smoulder Kohl Waterproof Eyeliner is
perfect for any eyeliner fan.

I love little bits of makeup in my stocking and I couldn't resist adding some of my favorite things right
now; Benefit 3D BROWtones Instant Color Highlights, Benefit They're Real! Lengthening and
Volumizing Mascara, Too Faced Melted Lipstick, and this Tarte Tartelette Flirty Eyeshadow Palette. A
little luxury filler is a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick. Of course this is quite an expensive stocking filler but
isn't that the dream to have one in your stocking?

Body Sprays are perfect for stockings and honestly smell so good! The OPI Love OPI XOXO 4 Pc Mini
Set are perfect for Christmas presents and can we just talk about how cute the packaging is? Essie nail
polish is also always a winner. As well is Barry M if you are looking for a cheaper alternative.

You could also get this Wet Brush. Bath bombs are also always a winner and always something I buy for
people's stockings. These Bath Melts smell amazing!

Stockings can be filled with whatever you like. I try to fill them with a bit of everything but it's
obviously up to you! I hope you enjoyed my first gift guide.

What would you like to receive in your stocking this year?

Thanks for reading!

Netflix Book Tag || Keert

Hi, guys! Today I have another tag for you all. I want to do more tags on here so this one is the
Netflix Book Tag. Let's do this!

Recently watched: The book you most recently read

I just finished reading this last week. I read it for school and I gave it 3/5 stars.

Top picks: A book recommended to you based on another book you’ve read

Goodreads recommended this book to me since I read The Selection by Kiera Cass.

Recently added: The book you most recently bought

I bought this almost a month ago and I can’t wait to read it.

Popular on Netflix: One book that you have and one book that you haven't read yet everyone has been talking about

I've been wanting to read You're Welcome, Universe for awhile now. The main character is
and I'm taking ASL in school right now so I think I'll enjoy the book.

Comedies: A funny book

Honestly, the things that Poppy and Sam said to each other in this book made me laugh a little.

Dramas: A character is a total drama king or queen

Mackenzie in this book was total drama queen. She was a terror in a tiara.

Cartoons: A book with cartoons on the cover

I LOVED The Baby-Sitters Club series when I was a kid and I especially loved the graphic novel
versions by Raina Telgemeier.

Watch again: A book or series you want to read again

I really want to the Confessions of a Murder Suspect series by James Patterson again. I loved
all 4 books. It’s an amazing series.

Documentaries: A nonfiction book that you would recommend to everyone

Definitely Talking as Fast as I can by Lauren Graham. I definitely love this book a lot.

Action & adventure: An action packed book

Out of all the books from the Confessions series by James Patterson, The Paris Mysteries was
a lot more action packed than the rest.

New releases: A new release or soon to-be-released book that you’re excited about

I am SOOO excited to read this because the main character, Dimple, is Indian just like me so
I’ll definitely relate this book.

Thanks for reading!
