Schermafbeelding 2017-12-14 om 18.28.55

It’s December….Which means…It’s almost Christmas! But what is Christmas without presents? That means it’s time to head to the malls and do some Christmas shopping!  But are you really gonna buy the usual bath or shower set again? Or are you gonna go for the easy way out, and give a giftcard? Really? For Christmas?!

I have done some research and made a list of Christmas gifts you’re gonna want to buy for yourself! Curious? Keep reading!

1. La Vie Est Belle – Lancôme ($$$)

Buying a fragrance as a gift is always a little risky. What if they don’t like it?  Tastes differ, and especially fragrances make people quite picky.

Lancôme has introduced La Vie Est Schermafbeelding 2017-12-13 om 16.18.32.pngBelle many years ago but it has never been such a hype until now. Throughout the years La Vie Est Belle has become Lancôme’s signature fragrance and because of it’s popularity, Lancôme decided to introduce a few more:

  • The original La Vie Est Belle
  • La Vie Est Belle L’éclat
  • La Vie Est Belle absolu
  • La Vie Est Belle Intense
  • La Vie Est Belle légere

La Vie Est Belle might not be the cheapest Christmas gift but I can assure you, you’ll make someone really happy… Schermafbeelding 2017-12-13 om 16.16.07

2.  Pandora jewelry ($$)

The Pandora jewelry collection for 2017 has been more popular than ever. The rings, in particular, were the #1 go-to gifts men bought for a special woman in their life.  Whether it’s for an anniversary, birthday or in this case, Christmas, these rings will always make someone’s eyes twinkle.

3. Clinique skincare products ($$-$$$)

Whether you want to buy something for him or for her, Clinique will take you out of your misery. Clinique offers a wide range of products for men and women, and even if their original-sized products are out of your budget, you could still go for their cheaper skincare giftsets (which, I think, are more fun to receive)!

4. Portable speakers ($-$$)

Music has become a big part of our lives these days. Some listen to it all day and some only once in a while, but that doesn’t take away the fact that portable speakers are a great gift. There are a lot of different portable speakers out there, from cute, small ones to bigger ones that look like a radio.  Who wouldn’t like to receive a little portable speaker for Christmas? Exactly…

5. GUESS bag ($$-$$$)

When you think of Christmas gifts, you might not immediately think of buying a bag. But what if it’s for your (grand)mother and you’re ready to spend a little more than usual? GUESS is a luxury brand but also offers the most fashionable clutches and crossbody-bags for less than $100. I think any woman would love to receive a GUESS bag for Christmas, am I right?

6. Socks ($-$$)

Because who doesn’t like socks? You can make anyone happy with a pair of cozy socks and they’re not expensive at all! The socks are usually one-sized so they’ll fit anyone. The perfect Christmas gift!

7. Nail polish ($-$$)

Nail polish makes everyone happy. Besides, you can never have enough?! Nail polish is more fun to receive when it’s in a set of 3 or 4, so there’s at least one colour you must like!

Schermafbeelding 2017-12-14 om 17.20.04

8. Coffee mugs ($-$$)

Are you a secret santa and are you absolutely clueless about what to buy ? No matter who’ you’re buying for, mugs will always do good! I mean, everyone needs mugs, right? For tea, coffee, hot chocolate, soup.. You simply can’t have enough mugs! A Christmas mug, maybe?

Schermafbeelding 2017-12-14 om 17.35.01.png

9. Bath bombs ($-$$)

Maybe a little cliche, yes, but what about bath bombs?! They’re fun to receive, fun to give and you can make it as expensive as you’d like! Just make sure the person who’s gonna receive it, actually has a bath…

Schermafbeelding 2017-12-14 om 17.53.21.png

10. Giftcards *sigh* ($-$$$)

When you have no idea what to buy because the person you’re buying for is really picky, a giftcard is probably your best option. It’s also the best way not to spend more money than you intended…

Looking for an internship abroad (2018)!

It has been quite a while since my last post (an entire summer actually) but not without a reason. You see, I recently started my second year of college and I’m literally drowning in  projects, assignments and presentations. It’s a lot but it will all work out eventually.

 

Alright, what’s up? Well, as you might know I’m studying International business and languages for my bachelor’s degree. The classes I’m taking teach me everything about marketing, sales, international business and business economics.

I’m currently looking for an internship (marketing / sales related) abroad, starting September 2018. I’d like to do my internship in an English-speaking country (The UK, USA…) 

If you’ve got any tips, tricks, suggestions or recommendations for me, please hit me up!

Marc by Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs is an American fashion designer, born in 1963.

He used to work as the creative director of Louis Vuitton (1997-2014). At the time he already had his own brand and he was the youngest designer to have ever been awarded the fashion industry’s highest tribute: the Perry Ellis Award for “New Fashion Talent”. (After this award, he won 11 others in different categories)marcjacobs_icone

In May 2009, Marc co-hosted, with Kate Moss, a “model and muse”-themed gala for the New York City Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. 

As you can notice, he has worked in the fashion industry for quite a while and he got pretty successful already. In 2014 he made the decision to leave Louis Vuitton and focus on his own line.

Besides fashion, fragrances and accessories, Marc also started to sell beauty products (and it’s going pretty well!).

“The indefinable characteristics of his namesake label are the result of a certain unique, uncommonly frank and brilliantly outspoken perspective.” This quote comes from Marc’s own website and I couldn’t think of a better way to describe this amazing brand.

Social media

Marc has, besides the official Marc Jacobs website,  his own site about himself where you can find pictures from his personal life, interviews, quotes, events he attended etc. It’s actually pretty interesting to take a look in someone’s life this way..

Marc Jacobs also has three Instagram accounts, one for the brand, for himself and for his dog (who he obviously loves more than anything). And believe it or not, each account is just as interesting and definitely worth keeping up with.
