2. Half United Fighting Hunger Bullet Necklace in Rose Gold/Plum

This is a gorgeous rose gold plated, plum powder coated bottom, 30″ gold ball chain necklace with a rose gold plated charm that reads ” HALF UNITED FIGHTING HUNGER”. This “Fighting Hunger” bullet necklace represents your fight against global hunger using ethical fashion. Not only that, but they’re repurposing bullets..for good! (All handmade in the USA.)

I absolutely love everything Half United stands for. Their mission, Fashion With A Cause, is to feed children in need and to provide quality products from head-to-toe. For every product you purchase, you provide 7 meals for a child in need! How amazing is that!?

 

The Hex Cuff in Rose Gold

A beautiful rose gold cuff bracelet that has an emphasis on quality, simplicity and wearability.  The Hex Cuff is bendable to adjust to your wrist size, rose gold plated and the inside of cuff is stamped with the words “HALF UNITED FIGHTING HUNGER”.  This cuff looks great with any outfit, and really makes a beautiful statement!

3. Tata Harper The Multi-Masking Collection*

You’re in for a treat with these here Tata Harper goodies! This Multi-Masking Collection has some of my favourite masks, so it’s pretty great that you can get all three of them in one!

This mask trio addresses all of your skin concerns and incorporates all of your multi-masking needs. The set includes:

I mean, it doesn’t get better than that! What a great gift to give someone wanting to spend a little more time on themselves. Don’t forget to tell them about Tata’s Tips for her 3-step routine healthy and hydrated skin!

4. Tata Harper Concentrated Brightening Serum + Concentrated Brightening Essence

If ever you wished for brighter skin this Christmas (or ever, really), consider this your wish granted! Tata’s done it again with a Brightening Serum + essence that truly perform! The serum is a multitasking age-defying treatment hero! It effectively illuminates, brightens and corrects the appearance of skin tone for a balanced, radiant complexion. It also fights and minimizes the appearance of dark spots!

Next, we’ve got my favourite! This lightweight Brightening Essence is a delicate infusion of Alpha and Beta Hydroxy technology – fancy, I know. You want a toned and refined complexion? You’re going to get it with this product! In addition to the serum above, this essence also minimizes the appearance of dark spots. So, you’re getting that radiant glowy, bright skin you’ve always wanted! (It also boosts the performance of all Tata Harper serums.)

Tata’s Tips:

  • Serum: Blend with any of the other Super Natural serums for a comprehensive treatment.
  • Serum: I always make sure to put a little extra on the backs of my hands and chest.
  • Essence: I love saturating my skin with this essence – face and neck – before applying my serum to get the most powerful brightening results.

Element Truffles Last, but absolutely not least…(I basically saved the best for last, duh!) These chocolates are one-of-a-kind you guys! I have never been so infatuated with a chocolate brand before. Seriously – I want to eat them every day. (Is that ok? HA..)

Element Truffles Chocolates are hand-crafted in micro batches, are raw, organic, dairy-free, GMO-free, have no artificial flavours and are infused with Ayurvedic super foods! Basically guilt-free! I mean, they’re sweetened with raw honey guys…and they’re divine! As if they couldn’t get any better, they donate 25% of their profits toward supporting wholesome education of under-privileged children in tribal areas of India. How amazing is that?

The flavours of chocolate they carry right now are wonderful: SEA SALT infused with TurmericROSE infused with Cardamom, RASPBERRY infused with Beetroot, PEPPERMINT infused with Lavender, ORANGE PISTACHIO infused with Turmeric and if you simply cannot choose because they all sound amazing (they really are all perfection..) you can pick out their Assorted Flavours Truffles + Bars box and then choose your faves! I’d have to say my favourites are the Raspberry infused with Beetroot and Orange Pistachio infused with Turmeric.  Can’t wait to hear which ones you dig!

If you’re still stuck on what to get someone special this holiday season, check out my Pinterest Board labeled Clean Beauty for some more inspiration! And, because this is something I never wish to loose sight of….let’s not forget that the Holiday’s are about giving back. You don’t necessarily have to buy gifts! Contributing time to any homeless shelters (<–click for directory of homeless shelters in your state) by going to volunteer, donating clothes, canned goods and more is also a beautiful way of giving this Holiday Season. You can also give back by participating in Operation Christmas Child by Samaritans Purse where, for $25, you can pack a shoebox full of sweet gifts and essentials for a child who may not have all they need this year.

I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday season! x
