The countdown to Christmas has officially begun! Shopping for so many people can be a daunting task, especially when trying to stay within a reasonable budget. One solution to that dilemma is handcrafting your own thoughtful gift(s). One thing that I enjoy doing every year is crafting my very own DIY mason jar filled with all things beauty for my friends. Today I’d like to share this as a gift idea. If you are still scurrying around doing last minute shopping, I can assure you that this took me less than 20 minutes to put together once I had all the items I needed. I hope that you can draw some inspiration from this post. Kindly scroll below for details.

I’ve always been fascinated with the art of relaxation. At the end of a long day, it’s a good idea to simply take some time to take care of you. Whether it’s reading a book, taking a walk, or simply putting away my phone for a few hours, it helps me to refresh my senses and be prepared for the  new tasks that await me.  There are many health benefits of relaxation and when I had the opportunity to try Amayori, a line of Luxury Bath products, I was thrilled.

The foundation of beautiful skin starts with skincare.  When my skin feels and looks healthy, I find that the application of my makeup goes on a lot more smoothly.  When my skin is at its very best, my makeup looks at its very best, so establishing a good skincare routine is very important. Today I’m excited to share my experience with the Foreo Luna 2* and Foreo Luna Play, two new skincare cleansing devices I’ve been using for almost a month now.
