Pampering: Mother's Day + Giveaway

Tuesday, May 09, 2017

It has been quite the weekend for me. I would get into all the details now, but I'll probably save it for my next upcoming post. So, if you're interested in hearing a little life update, be prepared for a long one! Anyways, Mother's Day is fast approaching, and if you're like me, you may not know what to get your mother. I procrastinate alot and therefore always purchase my gifts (if I'm lucky) a week in advance. This year, I'm not quite sure what I'm going to get my mom. She's kind of a picky person, so I gift shopping is kind of a struggle. I've learned though that you can never go wrong with beauty items. I find that (myself included) my mom never splurges on herself.  So these beauty items would be the perfect gift for any mom. 

1. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette: I'm kind of biased when it comes to eyeshadows. The only high-end eyeshadows I've purchased are from Urban Decay. It's what I've found works well for me, so that's why I'm such a loyal customer. But what I love most about them, is the fact that they're so versatile. Plus this is the perfect size for your purse. 

2. Smile Brillant Whitening Kit: If you're looking for that unique gift that your mom would love, a teeth whitening kit is perfect. It's something she won't be expecting, plus I'm sure she'll love it! 
The teeth whitening  kit that I've been using is one from Smile Brillant. I myself as well as others can vouch for the effectiveness. It works wonderfully because you create a custom mold to your teeth. That way it will ensure to whiten EVERYWHERE!  Also, if you're interested, Smile Brillant is giving away $25 off giftcards. All you have to do is enter katekouture25. How awesome is that!! 

3. Daisy Marc Jacobs Perfume: I know perfume is not the most original, but I would never complain if I got a new scent. In fact, this year was first time I ever owned a perfume. Crazy... I know! My boyfriend got my this scent for Valentine's Day, and I have to say, I'm still in love. It's such a fresh scent. I would highly recommend. 

4. Clinique Skincare Set: Such a basic item, but everyone can need new skincare regime. Personally, I've been using Clinique for a couple of years. Again, I might be a little biased. But then I think to myself, I can be biased. Y'all are coming here for advice, so I'm going to tell you exactly what I recommend. 

Hope y'all found these helpful!
