So it’s day 2 of Spa Inspired Valentine’s Gifts and I am so excited to reveal adorable gifts and ideas for the tween-teenaged girls. I know for all of the girls that are like me, there’s nothing that warms my heart more than makeup and lip gloss. So let’s spread the love with these delicious products…
Sugar Tinted Lip Balm from Sephora $22.50
These lip balms are great because they last for quite a while and the tints are perfect for the younger generation. They also glide like butter and they smell like a sugary lemon! Yum!
Too Faced Chocolate Scented Bronzer from Sephora $30
Yes girls, this actually smells like chocolate. It’s legit. And I shouldn’t have to say anything else to convince you to buy this.
Benefit Sugarlicious Lip and Cheek Kit from Sephora $28
This kit is such a good deal for several reasons. The High Beam is one of Sephora’s greatest selling products and for good reason, it’s a glamorous highlighter that adds the perfect amount of shimmer anywhere on the face. The bronzer/blush color is so, so gorgeous. It gives such a beautiful glow that is hard to beat, along with the lip gloss that is such a great universal color. The Benetint is also a popular selling item and smells like roses!
Bonding over Beauty: A Mother-Daughter Beauty Guide to Foster Self-esteem, Confidence, and Trust
I thought this booked looked SO adorable. If I could write a book on beauty and have a cover designed for it, it would look like this.
Makeup, skin care, shaving, hair color, periods–the tween years are full of landmines for moms. As the mom of a tween girl, you know what’s coming: puberty. As your daughter enters the teen years and exerts her independence, will you suddenly seem out of touch? Will she turn to her friends for advice before coming to you?
The tween years present a golden opportunity for you to start a dialogue and gain your daughter’s confidence–to talk to her about the things she cares about and show her they are equally important to you too. How you deal with the sticky ”grown-up” issues early on will determine the nature of your relationship with your daughter for years to come.
With Bonding over Beauty, you’ll have the knowledge and tools to create bonds that will last a lifetime.
And at last! I leave you with the oh-so-yummy www.lemon-sugar.com recipe for:
