If you haven’t started buying christmas and holiday gifts for your loved ones than don’t panic, I think most of us are in the same boat. To combat that last minute rush of panic, I am going to share with you a whole heap of holiday gift guides that will make buying presents a breeze. To start off I am going to show you the best offerings from one of my favourite beauty retailers, Sephora. These beauty kits include makeup, body, skincare, fragrance and nails.

For my fellow Australians, I know how painful it is to see these amazing products from a store that won’t ship to us but I have some  news that may help you so look out for that later on. Now ….. let’s look at the gifts!
