My Tech Favorites from Verizon Wireless this Year

I was pleased to be able to test a few items from Verizon Wireless this year as I didn’t know that they offered much more than phones. They do though! They have phones, smart watches, tablets, and accessories. Below are some of my favorite items from Verizon this year.

FitBit Alta- Hide it in the stocking for an extra special surprise! A Well Crafted Gift Guide - Sponsored

Fitbit Alta

Fitbit® Alta™ keeps you motivated and also looking great. Change the wrist bands (sold separately) and customize the digital clock face to update your look. Track your activity and take advantage of automatic recognition and recording of select exercises via the Fitbit app’s SmartTrack feature. Easy-to-see call, text and calendar notifications from your nearby, compatible mobile device are displayed right on the wristband.

The band was slightly difficult to put on at first. But, once on, it worked like a charm and didn’t need to be charged too often. The tracking of deep and restless sleep was an added bonus!

Google Pixel for Christmas - Read a blogger's review - A Well Crafted Gift Guide (Sponsored)

 Pixel & Pixel XL

With this new phone by Google, you can be sure to document precious moments with the highest rated smartphone camera, a battery that lasts all day and a charger that gets you seven hours of battery life in 15 minutes. Stay up-to-date on customized news while also using Google Assistant to keep your daily schedule organized.

I was able to test this out for twenty days and fell in LOVE with the camera! The camera has cool features such as a double twist of the phone puts it in selfie mode, HDR+, video stabilization, lens blur, and photo sphere (yes, 360!). You can even adjust levels before taking a photo which is insanely cool control. The light the camera took in was fantastic.

Verizon Wireless

The Google Pixel is currently only sold through Verizon Wireless. I was able to test out the service while testing the phone. I had no issues with service while using it and found that phone calls were crisp and clear. There are a variety of different sized plans that are available so that customers may choose the plan that suits their needs.

Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide 2016 – Beauty Products

If you are anything like me then you are just now getting around to stuffing your stockings! Before you head out for your last minute shopping (or, hey, open your computer) check out my comprehensive 2016 Well Crafted Holiday Gift Guide!

Read on to check out my suggestions for a holiday stocking stuffed with fantastic beauty products.

This post is sponsored. All opinions and experiences are my own. As with all beauty products, read the ingredients to see if they will work for you. I only share about products I have tried and liked. 

Holiday Must Have - SpaRituals Holiday Collection - Sponsored & featured on A Well Crafted Party

SpaRituals Holiday Vegan Gold Collection

I love nail polish. I hate buying nail polish. Which makes nail polish one of the best stocking stuffers someone can get me. The SpaRituals collection hits it out of the ballpark this season for me based on the names alone….Come Together, Take a Stand, Unite, and Rising Spirit. SO GOOD. But, even better? The coverage and staying power. Following the provided directions and using the SpaRituals top coat in addition to the color, I was able to wear the color for two weeks which is forever for me. Purchase SpaRituals online through their website, find SpaRituals on Amazon (here for the topcoat*), or use their spa locator to find a local store.

Burts Bees Mistletoe Kiss - from A Well Crafted Gift Guide (sponsored)

Burt’s Bees Mistletoe Kiss Gift Set

Get mistletoe ready with: Burt’s Pomegranate Lip Balm, Peony Lip Shimmer, Hibiscus Tinted Lip Balm. This package is perfect for a stocking or as a fun addition to your Christmas tree. See who finds it first. Purchase online or at your local Ulta.


Holiday Gift Guide - Sponsored - EVO hair products have personality and integrity and are a welcome addition to my Christmas tree! - A Well Crafted Party

evo Live Large Rad Bag

There is just something about a company that makes a great product but then goes the extra step of giving that product awesome names and packaging. Purchasing a shampoo and conditioner can also get you this rad bag. This would be a welcome addition to the holiday tree or stockings. You can purchase these online or visit their website to find local stores that carry evo hair.

From their website: “born from a desire to produce an exclusive salon range (and not sell it as the answer to life, love and other woes), evo steps outside the normal realm of truth-stretching invention in a ‘wake up and smell the coffee’ crusade of twisted honesty – designed to make people think. and so comes the catch phrase – saving ordinary humans from themselves™. inside bottles of evo that are bursting with personality, you’ll find luxurious products that are sulphate, paraben, dea, tea and propylene glycol free; products that give professional results while respecting the environment.”

Eye Makeup Removing Wipes & Face Cleansing Wipes for Christmas? Hop on over to read why on my sponsored Holiday Gift Guide - A Well Crafted Party

Kleenex Facial Cleansing Wipes* & Eye Makeup Removers*

These everyday purchases may seem like an odd thing to give as a holiday gift. But, really, they work perfectly in stockings because they allow your favorite person to try something new all wile not spending their own money. If they are already fans of these wipes then you just saved them a trip to the drug store. Seriously, that in itself is a gift! The Kleenex facial products are sold exclusively online. Pick up these wipes on Amazon (links above) or choose your favorite online retailer. Find out more about these products on the Kleenex Facial Cleansing site.

These were fantastic for getting off my stubborn eye makeup without a ton of products. Both of these are sitting up on my countertop now. The Kleenex Facial Cleansing line launched about a year ago and to celebrate they are sharing under the hashtag #WashWhatHappens. Check it out to see the wipes in action.
