The perfect stocking stuffer for the nail polish fan on your list is here! The Essie Holiday nail polish collection is contained in four, cute little mini-bottles, in shades of pale lilac (Go Ginza), red (Altitude Attitude), deep purple-navy (No More Film), and a sparkling silver (Apres Chic).

The colors from the Essie Holiday gift set are so perfect for the holiday season; as well as the winter season. Red is always a festive hue during the holidays, and it is so classic! This makes “Altitude Attitude” a fabulous red to have on hand for the holidays, and beyond.

Metallics are the bees knees this season, so “Apres Chic” is perfect to wear during the holidays for a festive mani, as well as throughout the winter season. “Go Ginza” is such an unique lilac hue! This is a great color to wear throughout the winter, and into early spring. It is my favorite of the set. Of course “No More Film” is a beautiful, deep dark purple with navy undertones. It’s mysterious and fabulous; perfect for winter. Love!

Of course, this little gift set is perfect for you too! If you love to change your nail color often, like me, then you will love these cute little mini bottles. The Essie Holiday nail polish gift set is such a great value for four festive hues! Plus Go Ginza and No More Film are unique, stand-out colors. If you like fresh hues on your nails, these two colors are to-die-for!

I can’t wait to wear these colors throughout the holiday season. They also make a great holiday gift or stocking stuffer idea!

You can find the Essie Holiday gift set online here. For more about Essie, please visit Essie.com.

Do you have a tech savvy person on your holiday shopping list? Wondering how much you need to pay to get her something she will love? Don’t feel intimidated, there are some extremely affordable gift options for the tech savvy girl on your Christmas list from Ankit.

I was recently introduced to Ankit. They have so many fabulous gift products for everyone on our holiday shopping lists! I love all of their affordable tech gear. The noise cancelling headphones are amazing. Not only do they have a cute floral pattern, they actually cancel outside noise and allow you to enjoy what you are listening to. As a busy Mom who needs some “me time,” this is extremely luxurious! If you have someone who loves tech gadgets, and needs some “me time,” then these headphone will be the perfect gift!

If you have been following along, you know I attend fashion week twice a year. During fashion week, I am using my phone constantly without many opportunities throughout the day to charge it up. I rely on portable phone chargers to get me through the day. I love this portable phone charger by Ankit, It is slim, making it easy to slip inside the interior pocket of my handbag. It also charges my almost-dead iPhone 7 up to 100% in no time flat. Love that! If you have a busy girl on your holiday gift list, this is perfect! You can find my portable phone charger online here.

Lastly, when tooling around town, it is nice to be able to charge my phone. I love this car phone charger from Ankit. It has the cutest little pattern on it, and it works like a charm to keep me charged up while I am driving a long distance, or taxing my kids around. This too would be a great gift for the busy, tech savvy girl on your list. Love!

Ankit has so many fabulous tech gear gift items, you can’t wrong with your choice! Here are all my favorites from Ankit. They make great stocking stuffers as well as main gifts for under the tree. Love!
