What I Got for Christmas: Beauty Edition

Last week I promised the What I Got for Christmas: Beauty Edition as my Thursday’s Fab Five, but I was having Polyvore issues and needed to reschedule it to this morning.  Sorry!!

If you missed my post last Tuesday, I featured everything I got for Christmas that wasn’t beauty/ makeup/ skincare related.  Check it out here if you missed it!

Christmas Gifts: Beauty

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette 
Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light

I also got this lovely Hand in Hand Soap & Lotion set in Noble Fir, it’s from Anthropologie, but I literally cannot find it anywhere online!

For some reason my best friend & family seem to think I like Lush or something…I have no idea why they’d think that…weird.

What I Got for Christmas: Everything But Beauty Edition

I know this post is a little late in comparison to a lot of other What I Got for Christmas posts, but whatever!
I’m breaking this up into different categories, homewares & the like today, and then beauty products next week.
I’m so grateful for my family and friends, Christmas is about sharing time and love with those closest to you.  I’m always so appreciative for the generosity that is shown my way & I try my best to show it back.  While I do get lots of things for Christmas, it’s not just “stuff”, I love how everything I receive has a purpose, especially as I’m growing up creating a home in my apartment.
I’m loving these new, & most importantly, useful, additions to my home, & if you’re interested in finding any of these for yourself, everything is linked at the bottom of the post!

Barneys +Disney = Electric Holiday

I had been refraining from posting too much Christmas-y things because I like to take it one holiday at a time, so now that Thanksgiving is over I can finally go all out with no apology.  
I love Barneys and I love all things Disney.  THEREFORE, my excitement level over the collaboration between the two was through the roof when I first heard of it towards the end of the summer. 
I’m obsessed with the promo video, I think it’s absolutely adorable, hilarious, magical, and I just love love love it.  The designers involved [Lanvin, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain, Balenciaga, and more] really got creative and you can tell it was a fun campaign to create.  Not to mention, seeing cartoons of Naomi Campbell, Carine Roitfeld, and Daphne Guinness is quite amusing.

Now, I realize there has been controversy on the physical look of the Disney characters throughout the campaign [tall, super skinny].  Well, guess what everyone…this is what high fashion models look like.  As far as I’m concerned it’s not a big deal, calm down, and just enjoy it and leave the drama somewhere else. 

The Electric Christmas collector’s items are all super cute and range from a $125 collector’s book to lollipops and ornaments.  Best part is, 25% of the proceeds are going to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy Relief.  So, clearly I’m requesting one or two items from Santa!  Check out the collection here.
When I’m back in NJ for winter break I can’t wait to go into Manhattan and actually see the windows, I’ll be sure to take tons of pics!
