Is it just me, or did the holidays just sneak up on us out of nowhere? Christmas is less than 6 weeks away! I am still in disbelief over here…
And with the holidays come all the parties. Whether it’s company holiday parties, Thanksgiving (and friendsgiving) get togethers, Christmas gatherings and all its related events, there are always some fun occasions to get dressed up and add some pizzazz to our looks.
The folks at Babbleboxx sent over a fun shipment FULL of items that do just that, and I’m sharing them with you today. Let’s dive in!
Makeup Sponges from Baseblue Cosmetics (learn more here)
I hadn’t tried a makeup sponge until just a few months ago and let me say, these are a game changer in terms of makeup products! I used to use my fingers (eew) and then a brush (brush strokes, anyone) and these sponge beauty blenders are so much better.
The Airsponge and Airsponge Full Coverage (cream and pink) help you blend your foundation on. The Airpsonge help with a natural, sheer finish, and the Full Coverage option helps with creating medium to heavy makeup applications with creams, liquids, powder foundations and concealers. What makes them so neat is that these beauty tools swell in size when wet to prevent absorption and product waste! You just wet the sponge, squeeze out excess water and apply/blend with your makeup! You can even use these to apply suncreens and facial cleansers.
The cute Holiday Snowman Makeup Sponge is so darling, right?! It makes for a great stocking stuffer and performs well dry and wet. The pointed tip help with small cervices near the eyes, too.
Stud Earrings from Charles & Colvard (more info here)
Nothing completes a look like a pair of sparkly stud earrings, right?! These beauties are timeless and perfect for every day or a fancy party. These Forever One 1.00 CTW Round Moissanite Solitaire Stud Earrings are 14K White Gold and are a true keepsake earring that are stylish yet simple. The moissanite stone is the world’s most brilliant gem. It’s a white gemstone with unique properties that outspakles all others.

Tights from No nonsense (more info here)
A good pair of tights is KEY for fun holiday looks when you want to wear a skirt or dress, especially if you are experiencing the extreme cold like we are here. It’s a nice extra layer and oh so stylish! These Great Shapes Opaque Shaping Tights smooths and slims from tummy to thigh without being too constrictive (the worst, right?!) It’s medium coverage, which is perfect since it doesn’t show through a ton, but isn’t so thick that it looks like leggings.

INSTAX Mini Link™ and FUJIFILM instax® Mini film from FUJIFILM (more info here)
If you are anything like me, you take ALLL the photos but never get around to actually getting them printed. Whoops. What better way to get photos than with instant prints within seconds?!
The INSTAX Mini Link and FUJIFILM instax Mini film is a fun product to bring along to any party. It’s a mini film format printer that works with an app on your phone. You can use the printer horizontally or vertically just by flipping the printer. Then there is a fun mode with ALL kinds of neat ways to get a photo- from collage styles, frames, surprise mode and more. Then there is a regular print mode where you can edit and print photos and even frames from a video with your smartphone. To get your best shot, you can tilt the printer to zoom in and out the press the power button to take a photo. And the best part? They print in just 12 seconds! The printer is slightly bigger than the size of a deck of cards and prints photos about the size of a business card. Perfectly portable and fun!
Watch from G-SHOCK (more info here)
I’ve been making an effort to wear a watch more lately so I’m not tempted to pick up my phone to check the time (and all my emails, notifications, etc.) And with two little boys, a durable, yet stylish, watch is a must.
This G-MS MSGS200G model features a sleek, upscale look that works well with casual and fancy outfits alike and comes with a dark brown band (pictured) or a light blush band. It has solar-powered charging capabilities and a LED light to ensure that it can last all-day and provides max visibility at night. Such a gorgeous ladies watch!
False Magnetic Lashes from MoxieLash (more info here)
What better way to hit up a holiday party than without some fun lashes! I’ve tried false eyelashes before for a few events, and it felt like I was wearing caterpillars on my eyes. They got in the way, came loose, and the glue was a mess. But these lashes from MoxieLash are amazing! They use magnetic eyeliner (no glue) and are incredibly easy to apply. I am wearing the Classy Lash here: natural lash with a touch of glam!
The magnetic eyeliner goes on smooth and easy with it’s fine tip applicator. You let it dry for 1-2 minutes, then use the lash tool to apply the lashes, which go on easy as pie. The lashes I am wearing above lasted ALL day, never came loose and the eyeliner came off easily with their eyeliner remover, which contained a simple olive oil blend. The best part? You can reuse as they are good for 30 wears!
