One of my favorite magazines for fashion and beauty inspiration is Marie Claire. I've been a fan since I was a teenager—which wasn't that long ago—so I was really excited to be a part of their promotion for my blog. The December 2015 Marie Claire issue has 101 gift guide ideas for your besties. The one that caught my eye was the Heavy Metal gift guide, so I created my own gift guide based on their suggestions. I love the look of silver and gold because they can look glamorous or industrial, depending on how you use them.
Marie Claire has been my go-to for fashion and beauty inspiration since I starting really trying to look my best as a late teenager. The looks that I find there get me compliments, so I always look there for fashion advice before I go shopping. I love their makeup tutorials because I can follow along at home and recreate the looks, and they've never steered me wrong with products.
This issue is huge! It has over 101 awesome gifts separated by theme. I found some gifts to give to my friends, and I found some things to add to my own wish list. My favorite gift guide was Heavy Metal, but that may be because it has Star Wars items.
Calvin Klein Eternity for Women ($62) This timeless women's perfume is fun, flirty, and feminine. It has top notes of mandarin and freesia with midnotes of white lily and marigold. It has basenotes of patchouli, amber, and sandlewood to complete the scent.
