    Personal Touches

    Nothing is quite as meaningful as a personalized gift. Engraving someones name or initials whether it’s jewelry, a book, a tech item or anything for that matter gives that little extra touch to show that the gift your giving had a lot of thought put into it.

    I personally love having something unique to me…something no one else will have because it was personalized to my liking. Small or big, now-a-days every retailer is offering ‘personalization’ options to which consumers can make the item they are purchasing truly their own!

    Here are some of my favorite personalized pieces for the season (and there after):

    1) Classic Script Monogram Necklace $100 (Available at BaubleBar)

    2) Sarah Chloe ‘Elle Bangle’ (Personalized to you preference) $129 (Available at BaubleBar)

    My One Stop Beauty Shop: Ulta

    Every girl has her go to store for all things beauty. Some gals are devoted Sephora fans others opt to head to Bloomingdales or Saks, however personally, my fav go to beauty store is Ulta.

    It’s the perfect place for a girl on a budget, they always have coupons, sales and free gifts with purchase and what I love most? They have amazing customer service and go above and beyond to accommodate their customers!

    Ulta has all the brands you love: Estée Lauder, Calvin Klein, Bareninerals, Paul Mitchell and more, all at affordable prices and with experts who can match you with the products that suit you best.

    Another thing I truly love about Ulta, their return policy. How many times do you try a new shade of foundation or a certain lipstick and realize it just isn’t for you? What do you do? Eat the cost? Attempt to return it and the store not take it back? Give it to your sister? Well at Ulta they will take anything and I mean anything back if your not happy, even if you lost the receipt and the package is open they will give you a store credit and can even look up the purchase on your credit card or Ulta rewards card which leads me to my next reason on why I love Ulta…the rewards.

    Ulta has one of the best rewards programs around and trust me I looked into Sephora, Bareminerals etc. 4 times a year Ulta sends you a rewards booklet with the level you reached based on your purchases for that particular time frame.

    You can score shampoos, lipsticks, mascara or even a flat iron, blow dryer or curling iron! The rewards never expire, although there is an expiration date the managers always accept them past that date and they will help you find whatever you need.

    If I haven’t convinced you to check out Ulta I’m not quite sure what will, but like I said, you have nothing to loose with their happiness guarantee and their unbeatable prices!

    Shop Ulta

    Ulta also has tons of great specials going on for the Holidays! Whether your shopping for yourself, a teenager, a pre teen or even a man in your life, Ulta has it all at great prices!
