This is my cute friend Ann (a.k.a Vanna White). :) She is the hostess of this fun party and her favorite this year was her Original Umbrella Stand. She said it’s so easy to use. Just stick it in the sand and it will hold your umbrella in place. Perfect for the beach or a soccer game at the park. A great way to keep the wrinkles at bay!
I didn’t get individual pics of any items this year, but here are the rest of the favorites. I want to try them all!
Is A Belt (the invisible belt) – a thin, discreet belt that holds your jeans up in the back and holds down the top button flap in the front. There are two colors and two sizes and my friend who brought this wears her clear, wide one the most. I want to get this! There have been so many times when I’m wearing a more fitted top that I have wished I had a belt like this. Something that just holds your jeans in place but isn’t obvious.
Hydro Flask Water Bottles – keeps things hot for 12 hours and cold for 24 hours. How cool is that!? I’d love one of these too. Perfect for exercising, taking water in the car, kids’ lunches, etc.
Mac Phone Eyeliner – Kohl – this is a charcoal grey eyeliner with a bit of sparkle. Makes a fantastic smoky eye and is great for every day. I’m excited to try this as soon as my current eyeliner runs out.
Say Yes to Cucumber Face wipes – Great for taking off make-up or washing your face quickly in a pinch. Also great for sensitive skin.
Candy Apple candle from Bath and Body Works – smells so sweet and festive for the holidays.
White Citrus Body Butter from Bath and Body Works – the most moisturizing cream for dry skin. Smells so light and refreshing and not over powering.
Hamilton Beach Water Kettle – my friend raved about this water kettle! Easy to use and heats up super fast.
The Wet Brush – perfect for brushing out your hair after you shower. I can’t wait to try this one. It is supposed to work great with curly hair too so I’m anxious to test it on Addison’s hair. That will be a true test of its power! :)
Anthropologie Measuring Cups – Useful and pretty enough to display. I almost picked these! But I know I’d break them if I used them to cook. I love them for kitchen decor though and think they make a great Christmas gift.
Hollywood Fashion Tape – This stuff looks so cool. It’s a tape that adheres to fabric or skin and basically helps with “wardrobe malfunctions” … you know – keeps your bra strap from slipping down, your too low top from looking too low, etc. Can’t wait to try this.
Mac Eyeshadow – Dazzlelight – this is a beautiful champagne color that looks great on a variety of skin tones. Another fun product to try!
Satin Pillow Case – designed to keep your hair less tangled and your skin less wrinkled. Brilliant!
There you have it! There were a few more, but I can’t find the links. Pretty much everything I’ve listed I would LOVE to try. Everyone brought such fun favorites this year. These are all things my friends use and love. One of my friends puts a basket together of several of these favorites for her mom and sisters each year. So fun! This party always gives me fun gift ideas and I hope it helped you too. I’m going to share more of my favorite gift ideas on the blog this week. Because well… favorites are FUN.
