2014 Gift Guide $30 & Under

1. J. Crew Firefly Cluster Earrings $29.50
I'm all about classic stud earrings, but these ones from J. Crew will add some extra sparkle. 

2. Original Beauty Blender $19.95
This seemingly simple sponge has changed how I apply everything from tinted moisturizer, foundation, and BB Cream. When wet, this sponge gives me the most even coverage that is still natural, breathable, and light. Imitation sponges just cannot compare. This one is worth a splurge. 

3. Deborah Lippmann Glam Rock Nail Color Duo $19
This set of deep red polish is perfect for any holiday occasion. Go ahead, spoil your nails. They will thank you. 

4. BP Heritage Plaid Scarf $24
Here in Minnesota, scarves are a must. This plaid scarf looks so cozy, and larger square scarves are on trend this season (that's one trend I can fully support!). The colors and pattern are so classic that you could bring this one back every winter. 

5. Gold Athena Headband $20
I'm not a huge fan of piling on accessories like multiple necklaces, rings, and bracelets. However, every now and then I like to add one piece to my look that "adds an element of straight up pretty". Without a doubt I would reach for this gold headband.
