2019 Holiday Gift Guide

It's that time of year again twinkling lights, fuzzy stockings, and evergreen candles. With all the hustle and bustle it can be hard to find that perfect gift for the loved ones on your list. As per tradition I wanted to share a few of my top cruelty-free picks this holiday season in the hopes that you can check a few people off your list.


For the Artist 


Schiffer Publishing kindly sent over a copy of Dot Drawing; A Fusion of Stippling and Ornament by Spider.Money for review. I've taken a bit of a break from having a true creative outlet in 2019, so I found this book perfect for getting my creative juices flowing again. The book is easy to follow and includes plenty of templates to get you started. My favorite section is the one dedicated to tattoo art. 

For the Conscious Beauty 


I unboxed this gorgeous Lights Lacquer GRL PWR bundle over on my instagram this morning. This bundle of six nail polishes are vegan, cruelty-free, 7-free, and made in the U.S. Lights Lacquer is Kathleen Light's first solo project, each shade was hand-picked and named by Kathleen herself. 

The GRL PWR Bundle includes: 
  • Jefa - The Latinx Girl Boss
  • HBIC - Head B*tch in Charge
  • Rosie - Dedicated to Kathleen's Mom 
  • GRL PWR - The Campaign
  • Woman - The inspiration 7 embodiment that is the female
  • 11 - Named after the strong female lead of Stranger Things 

Personally I love supporting businesses that are not only cruelty-free, but Latina women-owned. Kathleen included her Cuban roots in the naming of this collection, and as a Latina myself I love to see the infusion of her culture and personality in her products. 

These would make a wonderful gift for any beauty lover on your list. 

For the Boss Babe


For all the boss babes on your list that are balancing this that and the other thing, the FHI rose gold collection would make a great gift. Whether you're traveling for work, the holiday's or just around town, this carry on ready straightener has got you covered. The entire collection is designed to give you professional results at an affordable price point. This mini iron has a dual 120/140 voltage for use worldwide.

This will be one of the first things in my bag when I pack for the holidays.

I love that this iron heats up quickly, it only took me about 5 minutes to touch up my hair. There is also a 'lock switch' that allows you to lock the iron in the flat position, which makes for easy packing. The tourmaline plates are super important to me when purchasing an iron as this helps to seal in moisture.
Last month I dyed my hair red, and while the color looked gorgeous I admittedly have not taken great care of my hair since. In the past week I have been using HairRx to help restore vitality to my hair. The formula includes broad spectrum hemp extract and phytokeratin plus which helps to strengthen and hydrate hair while protecting you hair from sun and heat damage.

This sulfate and paraben free, vegan formula is perfect for the hair care lover on your list, or to go along with your boss babe's new hair straightener.

For the Metropolitan Beauty 

Mejuri has gorgeous, minimalist pieces that are perfect for any occasion. One of my favorites is this gold vermeil lotus necklace. It's dainty, and the perfect complement to any outfit, it's also set with AAA white sapphires. If you're looking for something even more luxe Mejuri also makes an array of solid gold options, for anyone you're looking to spoil this holiday season.

Wishing everyone a joyful holiday & happy new year!
