Gifts For Teen Girls 2014 Edition

Gifts For Teens Girls 2014 Edition | Style Through Her Eyes

It's officially Thanksgiving week and so I thought I'd release my first gift guide of the season today! I say first but there actually might only be like two. We'll see ;) Last year my Gift Guide for Teen Girls was such a hit and has continued to receive many views throughout the entire year with almost five hundred pins on Pinterest! It is definitely one of those age groups that can be difficult to shop for. So, I decided to do another one this year (with even more ideas!) and my hope is that one of these things will be perfect for the teen girl in your life!

These adorable fujifilm polaroid cameras make taking photos so much fun and there's nothing better than having the moment you just snapped in your hands seconds later! She can hang them on her wall or decorate her school folders with them. They come in many different colors and there's different films you can purchase too!

My sister, who will be 16 in February, loves necklaces with key charms. I spotted this Juicy Couture necklace at Kohl's and thought it was darling. The mixed metals and different charms make it easy to wear with many different outfits. All of the Juicy Couture jewelry is very feminine and expressive. Some are more elegant while others, like this one, are suited for every day wear. Don't forget, you can use coupons on sale items too!

What girl doesn't love to paint their nails? When I was younger I loved painting my nails every color available and creating unique designs. My best friend and I even used to trade nail polishes like trading cards! This set from ULTA has ten different polishes in nude, pink and red hues. Perfect for a girly girl!

If she isn't on her phone often than she must be from a different planet! Not that I encourage staring at screens all day but let's be real here. This is a pack of three touch screen knit gloves for under ten dollars. You could always keep one for yourself and give the others as gifts!

If she has a bit more of a geeky side, places like Hot Topic or even Her Universe are great shopping choices. You can find many apparel and accessory options for different fandoms like Star Wars, Disney, Marvel, Doctor Who, etc. So many girls love the marvel characters, that's why this distressed Avengers tank would be perfect!

Isn't this doughnut coin purse one of the cutest little bags you have ever seen? Whether you use it as a stocking stuffer or gift it full of special goodies, she will absolutely love it! They also have a larger clutch version as well as other fun food purses including a burger and milkshake. You can find them all here.

It can be difficult to remember what her favorite color is and what her sense of fashion is like. In my opinion, black and white polka dots are always a safe way to go. This scarf is also light enough to wear during the warm months. Pieces that can transition well into different seasons make a great bargain!

What's your favorite item from this list? Who do you have left to shop for?

Being an Influenster

Being an Influenster | Style Through Her Eyes

Influenster is one of the most exciting, rewarding, and interactive communities on the web. They are all about connecting bloggers with the right brands, specifically by determining the best match with surveys to find out more about you and your specific tastes. In the last two years I have received some amazing products from well known and newer brands and in return have been able to provide informative and fun reviews on my blog. The more involved you are (there are regular challenges to take part in, badges to earn, twitter chats, etc.), the more influential you'll become and the more opportunities will come your way.


BB5 & Sally Hansen At-Home Manicure | Eyes & Lips by Rimmel London

The free products are great but that's not what it's about. It's really a growing experience which challenges you to be creative and give your honest feedback which in turn provides solid content and rapport with brands. I can honestly say that I have received the most requests outside of this network to review products or participate in some sort of collaboration since becoming an Influenster (though I do not accept every offer that comes my way). I don't consider myself a writer but reviews are definitely one of my strong points and I have to thank Influenster for being a big part of that.

If you're someone who wants to see your blog grow and enjoys sharing opinions and experiences of products, than this just might be the community for you!

Do you think you might become an Influenster yourself? What blogging communities are you a member of?

New Rebecca Minkoff Handbags

Whilst in Nordstrom the other day a slew of new bags by Rebecca Minkoff caught my eye as I was about to walk out. I usually gravitate towards black bags but I'm also crazy about mint green. I've never seen Rebecca Minkoff do any bag in this color before and I instantly fell in love with them. The official name for the color is "Winter Green", which I think is so fitting. Along with the many winter green bags and wallets, there were some new black ones I hadn't seen yet either. Below are some of my favorites.

New Rebecca Minkoff Handbags | Style Through Her Eyes
Amorous Satchel - $325

Do they have some sort of coating you can spray your bags with? Because I would really love this one in the winter green color but I would be so scared to get it dirty! It's made of leather, so I'm sure there has to be something. It comes in black which would be a dream too but my goodness, the green! I love that it has four pockets and a zipper compartment inside. It's perfect for organizational freaks like myself. It's basically a large zipper pouch that sits in the middle of the bag, separating the bag into two sections. My current bag has two of these zipper compartments plus pockets! It absolutely helps to keep your bag tidy and organized. This bag is also available in thirteen other colors, some of which are smaller versions and fifty dollars cheaper.

Shop it Out Coin Pouch - $50

"Shop It Out" might not be the best advice but it definitely does help! I don't think you could ever have enough pouches, especially one with a cute quote on it. I am definitely one that believes everything needs it's own space, and this little bag is perfect for accessories that you don't want to get lost in your bag. This pouch is also available in a bright orange color.

Fringe Mini Mac - $195

The new Mini Mac with Fringe is exclusively at Nordstrom. It is one of three bags that was designed after gaining inspiration from people on Instagram. It has an exterior zip pocket and another pocket inside. I've been a fan of the Mac bags for ages (though their size isn't quite practical for me but would be good for quick trips and dates!) and I think this new look is fantastic! I don't know if eventually the fringe bag will be available in the Mac size (the larger version), but we'll see! This bag is also available in blue.

Quilted Mini Affair - $195

Seriously, how lovely is this? Like the CHANEL bags, the straps can be worn long or doubled for different looks. There is one pocket inside which is about the width of the bag itself so you can pretty much store anything that you don't want to be mixed with everything else. This bag is also available in thirteen other colors.

What do you think of the new color? Which bag is your favorite?

Beauty Box 5: November Box

Beauty Box 5 - November Box | Style Through Her Eyes

I can't believe it's been a year since I've been working with Beauty Box 5. I've enjoyed every minute of it and look forward to continuing the relationship with them. In my opinion, they are one of the better beauty sample services out there. You will always receive five deluxe beauty samples from new and well-known brands for just $12 a month. Right now if you sign up for their box you will also get another box for free! Just use code "FREEBOX1" when checking out. Click here to sign up! For this month I thought I would share everything I received in the November box. Though there were no actual make-up products this time around (there is always at least one) I loved the variety of goodies.

The HASK Macadamia Revitalizing Shine Oil was a pleasant surprise as I've been dealing with some hair issues lately. I feel like I just had a trim but the ends of my hair are saying otherwise. This oil is made especially for the ends after conditioning and it's supposed to make the dull strands look refreshed. I've used it once so I think it's a little early to tell the effect it has but so far I have no complaints. I've used HASK products before and really like them!

I think a body butter that makes you think of shopping in Anthropologie is an even better body butter. This Sweet Peony Body Butter by Laura Ashley is just that. Plus, it makes your skin feel super soft!

At first I thought it a bit strange to receive DenTek Floss Picks in my box, but the idea quickly grew on me. I love that the picks are tape floss. It is the only kind of floss I buy because it makes it much easier to use. If your teeth are tight like mine you should definitely try it. It makes flossing a breeze! I also loved that they came in a reusable traveling case as I typically like to carry floss with me.

I haven't tried the Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash yet but I know I will love it since I use their bar soap. I'm expecting this one to be even better actually, especially since it was featured as one of InStyle's Best Beauty Buys this year.

Everyone can use a Refillable Travel Bottle. This one by Afterfeather is much cuter than any of the ones you'll find at Target, plus their bottles hold 2 fluid ounces, meeting TSA compliance for carry-on items.

Disclosure: The items mentioned above were sent to me by Beauty Box 5. All opinions are 100% my own.

Weekend Delights Vol. 9

Weekend Delights - All Things Target | Style Through Her Eyes

All Things Target is one of my new favorite websites. It is regularly updated with new promotions, clearance findings from viewers and special reminders like the popular Starbucks "Buy one holiday drink get one FREE" offer. Which, by the way, is still going on every day from 2-5pm until the 16th!

Weekend Delights - Cupcakes & Cashmere | Style Through Her Eyes

I'm sure many of you follow Emily of Cupcakes & Cashmere. She is one of my favorite bloggers and I happily read her posts every day. One of her recent articles was about an ice cream flavor named after her blog. Reading about how the ice cream was thought of and created was so amazing and had me wishing I could taste it! You can read all about the process (with lots of yummy photos) here!

My post, Overcoming Anxiety with Truth, was chosen as one of the top links on this week's Links à la Mode. I would love for you to read it if you haven't yet!

My New Glasses | Style Through Her Eyes

*These images taken with my new Samsung Galaxy S4. I wanted to test out the camera (which I love). However, my editing skills are clearly not up to par.

I've worn glasses for when using my laptop or using the TV since late 2011 (You can see the first pair I got in this post). Over the past month or so I've been dealing with a lot of headaches and fatigue and started noticing something different with my eyes, though I couldn't quite put my finger on what it was. It turns out my right eye weakened somewhat and so it was throwing my vision off which was one of the causes of some of the symptoms I was experiencing. I got a new prescription and my doctor recommended I continue using them while looking at any type of screen and also said I should use them at work. Basically, the more I wear them the better since wearing them will properly correct my eyes. I decided since I would now be wearing them at work (I've never worn glasses in public before!) I needed a much cuter pair. Initially I wanted a cat eye but after no luck in that department I settled with a more square, hipster-like frame which is larger than my previous pair. I think it helps to give me more of an awakened look since you can see my eyes more clearly. I also had chosen black when I got my first pair of glasses but overtime felt it was too harsh against my dark features. This time I went with a medium brown color which I think looks much nicer. I may end up getting another style in the future and will look into prescription sunglasses but for now, this is what I have and I am pretty happy with them.

What do you think? How did you go about choosing your glasses? Be sure to have your eyes checked once a year!
