I don’t know how Babbleboxx always hits the nail on the head, but they really do. This year’s holiday gift box couldn’t have been better for me.

All of the items I received are things I will absolutely use and I’m really excited to show you each of them.

Airsponge and Airsponge Full Coverage from Baseblue Cosmetics 

Good makeup sponges are an absolute must this day and age, they make all the difference when applying creams, liquids, and even powders. Airsponge delivers on quality, feel, and durability. Plus their packaging is just so cute!

Forever One 1.00CTW Round Moissanite Solitaire Stud Earrings in 14K White Gold from Charles & Colvard

I think everyone should have a beautiful set of diamond studs like these, but why do they need to be real diamonds and cost so much more when Moissanite looks even better and will make you every bit as happy for so much less!

These are some of their best-selling stud earrings! Perfect for every day or an amped up night out. Enchantingly simple, delightfully stylish. These round cut Forever One Colorless (D-E-F) moissanite studs have a 1.00 ctw (carat total weight) and measure 5.0mm.

Moissanite is the world’s most brilliant gem. It’s a white gemstone with unique optical properties that outsparkles all others. Moissanite is a naturally occurring gemstone that is recreated and perfected through beautiful, iterative and patented science in a lab. It’s not a diamond simulant – or a diamond wannabe. Moissanite is made, not mined. Because it’s not mined, tremendous amounts of earth aren’t displaced, and water isn’t contaminated in the creation process.

I’ll be the first to admit that most days lately I can be found in my smart watch because it’s really convenient, but that being said, there is something really special and timeless about putting on a great analog watch. Since getting the G-SHOCK I have found myself finding reasons to put it on really often, and have really enjoyed going back to just telling the time rather than being distracted by notifications all day.

The G-MS MSGS200G models feature a sleek, upscale look with colorways including a light blush band (MSGS200G-4A), or dark brown band (MSGS200G-5A) and include solar-powered charging capabilities and a Super Illuminator LED light to ensure that they are able to last all-day and provide maximum visibility at night. The bezel is made of forged stainless steel and boasts mirror and hair-line finishing treatment on the surface to enhance the overall look. 

The timepiece’s durable resin bands give them a sleek look while still upholding the hallmark of absolute toughness that G-SHOCK is known for. Features include solar-powered charging capabilities; 100M water resistance, shock resistance, daily alarm, countdown timer, and more. Models combine sophisticated style with functionality for everyday life, with natural colorways and a forged stainless steel bezel that boasts mirror and hair-line finishing treatment on the surface to enhance the overall look.
