Beauty Themed Stocking Stuffer Ideas // A Well Crafted Party

My next stocking stuffer gift guide is all for the beauty lover. It is for someone who likes accessories and beauty products. Beacause, just like food, they are often items that I don’t want to spend a ton of money on for myself, but I love having and receiving. Beauty items make for fun items to give in stockings because they are typically affordable and small!

My Picks for Beauty-Centered Stocking Stuffers

This post was not sponsored. I did receive some product to review throughout the year and I chose to include some of those items in this gift guide. Some of the links below are affiliate links. 

  • Jewlery: I think accessories are one of the best items to receive in my stocking. (Well, jewelry AND speciality spices/condiments—check out yesterday’s post on foodie stocking stuffers for more on that.) For this stocking I put in one of my favorite necklaces from Lucky Brand Official and a leather cuff from Flourish Leather. I got the cuff for a steal at Flourish Leather’s new Flash Sale Site!
  • My Favorite Things Set from Pur Minerals: Three award-winning bestsellers in one convenient kit make for an essential gift for the beauty lover in your life. Pür Minerals’ classic Mineral Glow bronzer contains skin-boosting antioxidants, and a buttery Berry Pretty lip gloss stick moisturizes lips and fights signs of aging. Bold Big Look mascara rounds out the trio with lash-loving Argan Oil that conditions and protects for the perfect beauty boost.
  • Lipstick: I love this fun lipstick Gerard Cosmetics‘ “Gimme Some Lip” collection called “All Dolled Up.” I think it would be such a fun New Year’s Eve lip color!
  • Body Cream: Touch of Light body cream from Rituals provides deep moisture to leave skin feeling radiant and smooth throughout the day.This whipped body cream is from the new limited edition by rituals called Diwali, or Festival of Lights.  The Diwali collection consists of an exclusive range of body and home cosmetics, enriched with the fragrance of White Patchouli and Cardamom.
  • Let It Glow! Makeup Stick Trio from Pur Minerals: Give your skin a rosy glow with this cheeky trio. This limited-edition set features three twist-up makeup sticks that highlight your features for natural radiance. Define, contour, and brighten while conditioning for smoother, softer skin. Gentle Lavender Oil calms skin, while Vitamin E protects against free radicals. The trio includes bronzer in Naughty & Nice, blush in Sugar & Spice, and highlighter in Glisten & Glow.
  • Holiday Gift Soap: I loved these Holiday Gift Soaps from the Snow Drop Collection from Soap & Paper Factory. These carefully crafted artisan soaps are made the old-fashioned way, hand-stirred in small batches. Packed with nourishing Shea Butter to keep skin soft and supple, these soaps come wrapped in beautiful packaging and are just the right size for stockings. They also will make the stockings smell DIVINE.
  • Geluxury Slippers: Featuring SmartGel® technology, the Geluxury Slippers provide comfort and skin repair at the same time.  Infused with  7 botanical oils and ceramides, the dermatologist tested SmartGel® is formulated to restore, repair and rejuvenate distressed skin on the feet. The GeluxurySlippers are fully lined with a contoured fit, providing treatment to the entire foot. With regular use, these moisture replenishing slippers will soften and smooth dry, rough skin and calluses, while repairing damaged cuticles and nail beds. While these felt a little weird going on… I loved how my feet felt after just wearing them for a bit.
  • Shea Butter Hand Creams: The beautifully packaged hand cream from Soap & Paper Factory‘s Snow Drop collection is a pure, velvety cream is beautifully perfumed and loaded with the finest natural oils. Featuring creamy Shea Butter and with no parabens, phthalates or petroleum, these creams leave skin silky smooth all winter long.
  • DVD: Why not add in a fun, classic and inexpensive DVD that you know your loved one doesn’t have! Breakfast at Tiffanys seemed to go with this stocking’s theme and would make for a fun ladies night in. Pair it with a bottle of festive wine (such as a wine from the Chloe Wine Collection which is already dressed up for a fun evening) and you’re set!

Dealing with Change

Dealing with Change

Thoughts on Change // A Well Crafted Party

Change… it happens whether we want it to or not. How we handle change says a lot about how successful we will be in life.

“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” – John F. Kennedy

If I were to take a test about how well I handle change then I’d pass with flying colors.

In most cases, I’d say I embrace change. Nothing in my home is placed permanently; everything has to be easy to move on a whim because I enjoying changing the way things look often.  I seriously have never had the same hairstyle twice since I have been able to enjoy choosing my own hair styles. Heck, I don’t even like eating the same meal two weeks in a row, much less as leftovers the next day. Thank goodness my husband likes leftovers.

See, you might even say I like change. I should be a total success at this whole life thing, right?

Thoughts on Change // A Well Crafted Party

The one thing that all of the changes that I like have in common is the fact that I have control over these changes. I like change that I have control over. I will even CHOOSE change to exert some control when all of life’s changes fly at me. (See the impromptu new hair-do for example!)

Thoughts on Change // A Well Crafted Party

This year has been awesome. It has been challenging. It has been incredibly sad and it has been deliriously happy. But, holy crap, it has been a year of change.

I’m working through the changes one moment at a time. Afterall…

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” – George Bernard Shaw

I’m also trying to encourage myself to be open to becoming the change because…

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” – Barack Obama

And…

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Tell me, how do you deal with change? Do you feel you are open to change?

Rock for a Reason: Outdoor Rock Concert to Benefit 4-Year old with cancer – 9/10/2014

Rock for a Reason // A Well Crafted Party

National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and today’s blog is in hopes of helping shed a little more light on the desperate need for more funding and research on pediatric cancer. Cancer remains the most common cause of death by disease for children and adolescents in America. Growing up my best friends family dealt with the impact of pediatric cancer on their world when her sister was diagnosed. A local girl and her family are experiencing the hardships that pediatric cancer brings with it and the community of Milwaukie, Oregon are banding together to help! 

Portland-Area Businesses Coming Together for a Cause

The local Milwaukie community is pulling together to host an outdoor family friendly benefit, silent auction and rock concert for a local girl living with a very rare brain tumor. Leah Merklin, a 4-year old girl has one of the rarest forms of pediatric brain cancer, primarily affecting young children, the brain tumor called DIPG is both inoperable and incurable.

On Wednesday, September 10th, local Milwaukie business owners, Portland DJ Ron Rouse, Chris Carpenter & The Collective, a local band, and Good Roots Community Church are joining arms to host an outdoor community fundraiser for Leah.

Banding together, local vendors are stepping up to offer locally sourced, delicious food at the event: Pronto Pizzeria & Kitchen will be selling grilled pizzas and farmer’s market fresh salads. Schoolyard Farms, a local nonprofit educational farm, will be offering build you own kid salads. Pepper & Salt will be selling butternut squash infused mac + cheese and lettuce turkey wraps. Painted Lady Coffee House will be selling hot coffee, Italian sodas, and homemade delicacies and Mix ‘n’ Match Creamery will be whipping up batches of their custom made ice cream.

Wine:30 Bar and Duffy’s Irish Pub are setting up a beer and wine garden – 100% of the proceeds from all Pabst and Breakside Brewing purchases will go directly to the Merklin Family.

There will be stenciled face art by Sweet Cheeks Airbrushing; handmade necklaces and headbands offering proceeds back to the Merklin family; and a bouncy house, henna tattoos and a stilt walker for the kids!

Ron Rouse, who works for Portland Fire & Rescue and is also a popular local DJ named DJ Rontourage, will be donating his time at the event. Local band Chris Carpenter & The Collective will be playing live music from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Event goers will be invited to pick out a favorite song from the band’s play list and the band will play songs for donation.

Finally, there will be a silent auction featuring locally procured items, with 100% of the proceeds going back to the family.
