Holiday Shopping

November 12, 2013

Is it just me or do you find when the holidays come around you are clueless on what to get everyone as gifts. I know with all the ladies in my family, I always think and resort to the basics of a gift card or a bottle of wine to keep it simple but I have plans to switch that up slightly this year. Mom, sister....stop reading now! ;)

I was recently introduced to a company called Pink Papaya which has some great spa like items including soaps, candles, lotions...etc and it immediately made me think of gifting for the holidays to all those ladies I always get the same thing for. Us girls can never have enough candles and soaps so why not indulge a bit this season with something all girl? I snagged my own set of the limited edition Pumpkin Latte Collection that's only available until December 31st and when I got it in the mail, my mind was made up. This will be happening for gifts whether it's for family or ladies in the office I work with. The scent is divine and the candle is soy so me being Mrs. Picky was beyond impressed with this collection.

They also have some great makeup items along with skin care options. You all know I struggle with acne and as I'm closing my month with the Philosophy line I've been using, I might have to give theirs a go next. More on that and my thoughts next week!

Anyway, make sure to head over to Pink Papaya to browse around and get your order in soon so it comes in time for the holidays!

Happy shopping friends!
