Before we go broke from buying gifts for our families and friends, it's nice to treat ourselves first. When you're creating an early Christmas shopping list, it should always include an item that you've always wanted to have. After all, nobody knows what you want better than you do. With that said, here are the gifts we're giving ourselves for Christmas.
"Interesting stud earrings, like Carrie K.'s Nut and Bolt 2.0 collection, always charm me. I particularly admire how they've bling-ed up this particular edition; it's a statement jewellery yet it's also very versatile. I can use it as an everyday accessory by wearing the stud alone for subtle elegance or glam things up by putting on the full ensemble. This is going to be a nice addition to my collection."
"This hydrating rose hair and body oil from Ouai is a delightful treat for both the hair and body. Not only is it a moisturising ace, it also replaces my regular hairspray to keep my hair down when I'm going for a sleek hair look with a bit of shine – a tip by founder Jen Atkin herself when she was in town for a media lunch last month. Its rose scent smells absolutely heavenly without being overpowering; it's just perfect for a non-rose scented lover like me."
"As with most anything sartorial-wise, I like a bag that is minimalist in terms of design and colour. This bag from the 2018 Cruise Collection of Bottega Veneta fits the bill. It has quite a classic design, and the colours are just as timeless."

"I'm a sneakers kind of girl and these selections from the recent Valentino Resort collection just called to me. The vibrant and eye-catching designs are not just for athleisure looks, but just any outfit in general."

"My shoe collection definitely needs some update, so I'm scouting for new kicks lately. When I saw these ankle boots from Pull & Bear, I was immediately drawn to it. The elevated platform design matched with the cut-out detail is perfect for petite girls like me!"
"I'm serving killer eye looks this month with the 3INA 's The Cream Eyeshadow in shade 312. It comes in a small tub enough to last for ages and the rose gold colour is so shimmery and waterproof. The best part about 3INA, is that their products are so of high-quality yet still affordable."
