You are full of great ideas before you get into your car and then once you battle for that parking space, fight the crowds to get into the malls and the stores, suddenly you become "clueless" about what to buy.
Never fear, Stevie’s here with some GREAT  suggestions and while you can find them in the stores, you can also do your shopping easily– from the comfort of your office or home desk chair courtesy of your computer!

Jaqua Beauty Pink Coral Casino Kit!– A great deal with fab products!!

Another "can’t miss" Jaqua product is from the Chocolate Mint Collection. Heaven in a canister! All Jaqua products can be found at Bath and Bodyworks Flagship stores, , OR at

For guys– they aren’t as easy to shop for but you can find the right things for them. You just have to think a bit (and maybe snoop in the bathroom or closet)! One thing guys ALWAYS use are shaving tools. Whether they are into the drugstore basics or the  "metrosexual" thing of having great products and understanding how much better their shave — and skin — can be, shaving products are a great gift.

THE ART OF SHAVING has some fantastic products and THE 4 ELEMENTS OF THE PERFECT SHAVE kit is the perfect thing to get the guy who  should be upgrading his grooming routine (and this is the easiest way to get him to do it) or for the guy who  knows quality products. This also makes a nice travel set too. This comes in  scented and unscented version so choose one YOU like and buy it! If you want to really upgrade his grooming tools, check out the nifty shaver and stand — pricy but these are  tools that will last for years and look great sitting out on the counter! (and girls, they are excellent tools for you too!) You can find  The Art of Shaving products  at, major department store and

Trish McEvoy is known for having beautiful cosmetics, fragrances, skincare and body products. One of the most useful– and gorgeous– products out for holidays from Trish  is her  planner.

Some come with brushes and color palettes like the Power of Make-up Crystal Planner. 

Others — like  this Little Black Card Glamourously Sexy Palette which includes  concealer in 2 shades, matte bronzer, blush, base shadow and eye definiter plus 4 glosses. It’s such a nifty palette that it’s well worth the investment– even if you buy it for yourself! Find it at and other versions at (smaller crystal planners with brushes that will hold two black cards and come with a small selection of brushes). LUSCIOUS!!

Another idea for men is fragrance– and not just any fragrance but niche brands that are harder to find and might suit the man you are shopping for. The first place I look for ANY niche brand happens to be whose amazing array of fragrances, candles, body products (and even tea!) for men and women will astonish and delight those who love great smelling products. For guys, Comme de Garcons 3 is a great choice.  Both  aggressive and yet secretive, seductive and shy, it is an amazing fragrance and is  definitely an intriguing scent for a man (or the woman who wants to borrow it). It’s distinctly CdG!

Another scent that I like for both men and women is from FRESH. Cannabis Santal is a distinctly unique scent. (check out my other blog post on this scent to get the 411 scoop  (beautybuzz blog)   on the notes and more. Suffice it to say, it’s not for everyone– it’s very different and you either love it or leave it. Me– I LOVE it. I wear it all the time. It doesn’t smell like Cannabis but it does smell sexy.

So check out the podcast– check out the other podcast from the beautybuzz blog and get going! Time’s awasting and you need to get it done!!
