Merry Christkwanzukkah, Pretty Girls!!

Hi Ladies,
Welcome to my third annual SYB Holiday Gift Guide! I can't believe we're here again, so soon! I feel like I've aged twelve years since December '06. So much has happened to me in the past year (Joanne, the new cellulite under my butt, IT CHICKS, the dawning realization that I no longer find ANTM entertaining, Joanne's demise...). But I'm thrilled to find myself older and wiser, just in time to celebrate what I'm sure will be the best holiday of our lives...if only because I've come up with such a yummy Gift Guide. Enjoy, SYB Babes, and spend wildly!
xoxo,
Tia

TIA'S 2007 SYB HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

WHO: CHIC MOMMY
GIFT: Soap & Paper Factory Scented Drawer Paper ($30 for 6 sheets)
WHY: Sachets are so over! Inspired by vintage wallpaper designs, these stunning scented drawer liners are a perfect gift for your hardworking, selfless, loving mommy. They're unexpected, both frivolous and functional, and she NEVER would've bought herself (practically the definition of a great gift, no?). The liners come in rosewood and fig scents.


WHO: GAY BF
GIFT: Banana Republic Candle in Night Cap ($24)
WHY: Blended with tobacco flower, rolled cigar paper and patchouli, this wildly butch, earthy fragrance is sure to make his latest crush weak in the knees with unadulterated lust. And your gay BF will LOVE you for it.


WHO: YOUR FAVORITE ASPIRING MAKEUP ARTIST
GIFT: MAC Limited Edition Heirloom Face Brush Set ($48)
WHY: Why? Oh honey, you MUST gift this makeup-mad girl with a set of the most high-end, professional makeup brushes in the land. The best part, though, is that the four brushes come in a super-cute, antique-looking clutch bag woven with cream/gold metallic thread. Just the thing for New Year's Eve partying!


WHO: ITTY-BITTY NIECE
GIFT: Bath & Body Works "Sweetest Softest Lambie on Earth" ($19)
WHY: Sooo cuuute! You really can't tell in the picture, but this oversized, crazy-soft, ultra-plush lamb is the cuddliest stuffed animal in el mundo. It's like your own personal cloud. Plus, it's very faintly scented with soothing lavender, which is great for calming down hyper toddlers at bedtime.


WHO: LE DIVA
GIFT: Too Faced Lights, Camera, Glamour! Collection ($40)
WHY: Because I have never, in my almost ten years in beauty, seen a compact containing a mini-Hollywood makeup mirror THAT ACTUALLY LIGHTS UP! So dazzling. Plus, this makeup arsenal contains three levels of Too Faced's bestselling eye, lip, cheek, face, and brow shades.


WHO: SORTA NEW BOYFRIEND
GIFT: Lacoste Pour Homme ($47)
WHY: There are fragrances that are more butch or more intense, but for my money, Lacoste is the sexiest. It's a light, citrus musk that'll make your man smell like him, but better. A sure thing, believe me.


WHO: LABEL-OBSESSED TEEN
GIFT: Marc Jacobs Daisy Solid Perfume Ring ($30)
WHY: You can't afford to buy her a Marc Jacobs bag, so why not gift her with the alternative, a darling, limited edition MJ ring containing solid perfume? First of all, Daisy is the prettiest floral scent out there. And secondly, there's nothing hotter than flipping open your supercute ring and applying perfume in the middle of third period.


WHO: BOSS
GIFT: Kiehl's Cranberry Duo Gift Box ($35, comes with Body Lotion & Shower Gel)
WHY: Kiehl's is always a classy way to go, and their special edition Cranberry scent is sweet, luscious, and suitably festive. Basically, it's a smart gift for the person who signs your paychecks.

Love the post, and thanks for the encouragement Tia!

Lipgloss whore, you're sounding like Veruca Salt... I feel you, I did ALL my Christmas shopping yesterday at Nordstrom and I was having to stop myself from buying 'me' presents!
I found some cool stuff I plan to post about though!

Btw, those brush sets are the perfect travel size.

PS: Remember I said I went hair product crazy and bought all of the Creme of Nature organic products? Well, I tried everything out today (except for the perm...that's for a few weeks from now), and I must say, I love it! It makes my hair feel amazingly soft. I want to go green with my hair! You all should listen to Tia; she knows what she's talking about!

One day I'm going to compile a list of all the stuff you've suggested that I've bought.

That's a good idea, Lipgloss Whore! We should all do that! I have serious new favorites thanks to Tia. If she recommends it, it has to be good.

Thank you for touching our beauty lives, Tia!
