Holiday Gift Guide: Beauty Version

15 Dec

By Whitney

Every girl loves a beauty product.  I don’t care how low maintenance you claim to be, no one wants wrinkles and no one wants to look at raggedy nails.   There are so many great beauty sets out there this season (a lot have sold out online so check out your Nordstroms asap) and there are a lot of great one off products to get someone that will be appreciated.  No one says “I don’t like” to a Chanel face.
