It is that time of the year again, where many of us are beginning to think about beautiful things to gift this winter season of 2016. Firstly, let me express how amazed I am by how quick this year has passed: it went like a flash, literally. There are many things for us to celebrate. 
Personally, the year of 2016 was a year of me falling in love with many things and beautiful souls. I graduated, and I came back home to live with my family once again. It was difficult to adjust at the beginning, but I am slowly making a progress and I am beginning to love the path which life seems to be taking me in! I wish the same for all of my readers.


I am going to set up several gift guides for this season, starting with my personal favorite: Beauty picks, which will all be under 150 USD. So if you are considering to purchase a beauty item (which will include anything beauty related: makeup, skin-care, beauty equipment etc) then this guide is for you, personally chosen by me, with products that I love.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit - Ultimate Glow

Price: 49USD - Click here to buy!

Highlighting is very important during winter season, because many of us lose our natural glow in colder climates. This highlighter palette has six shades for you to choose from to give the perfect highlighted complexion. The shades are also great for winter season. What I love about this highlighter set is that it includes a metallic white shade, which is great for highlighting the inner corners of your eyes and bridge of the nose. I also like to use this as a little enhancer for my lips, makes them seem fuller!

Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lip Lacquer 

Price: 38USD - Click here to buy!

Giorgio Armani makeup has always been a favorite of mine. I started using their Mascara a while back, together with their foundations, and recently started using certain shadows from Armani and lipsticks/lipgloss. I am more of a lipstick woman, and lip glosses rarely appeal to me, however, with this one I am hooked.

The shade is suitable for Fall/Winter (in my opinion) and the application is super comfortable and the lipstick is long lasting.

Victoria Beckham Estee Lauder Eye Palette

Price: 79USD - Click here to buy!
Victoria Beckham selected marvelous 6 shades of eye-shadows in collaboration with Estee Lauder. The shades are mostly deep and rich of browns, greens, blue and gray. Victoria Beckham's personal 'often seen wearing' shade of Burgundy is also included in this palette.

Buy this palette for a working, professional woman who loves deep and rich eye-shadow colors, but has little time to perfect blends of colors, as this palette provides perfect shades for such a woman.
