The Gift Guide For Him

The Gift Guide For Him

Buying gifts for guys that they will love doesn’t have to be tough. In fact, more and more these days, buying gifts for guys has become easier, because the males are just as spoilt for choice when it comes to all the great things out there. For this gift guide, I had my hubby help me out a bit, because he’s one of those guy’s that’s really (and I do mean really) difficult to buy for. He’s the type, who when he wants something, before I even get a chance to consider it as a good gift option, he’s already bought it for himself. So what do you get him that he wants and needs, but possibly doesn’t have – or doesn’t think he wants? Well that’s what I’m about to share with you… Dan Brown Origin Both the hubs and I have read, and we both loved the new novel by Dan Brown – Origin! If you’re familiar with the author, it follows the Robert Langdon series, but even if you haven’t read the previous books (this one is book 5 by the way), then you won’t be completely lost. Hubby, being a Dan Brown fan has read his…

Because you just can’t put off those festive shopping days for much longer, I’ve put together a list of six luxurious and lustworthy gifts she will love! I’m pretty certain that these would make great gifts for any woman, even the one who seems to have it all! By the way. If you need more gift idea inspo, be sure to check out my Christmas Shopping Guides of the past. There are still some great ideas  Okay, let’s get into it… GOSH Strobe & Glow Highlight Kit I’ve been using my GOSH Strobe & Glow Highlight Kit 001  for a while now and even though this product isn’t crazy expensive (R255) it definitely makes it onto my list of lusty items! The product formula is flawless! Inside you get a quad of four highlighting shades that you can either wear on their own (my absolute fave is the golden shade in the top right hand corner), or you can combine them to create your own level of glow. What I love about this highlight formula is that the “glow” is super fine, so when you apply it onto your face you don’t get a powdery finish at all. The glow…

The Ultimate Gift Guide For The Woman Who Seems To Have It All

I don’t know about you girls, but the older I get the less I want! Is that weird? It’s not that I dont want “stuff”, I do, I just don’t want random stuff that serves no purpose in my life, know what I mean? The funny thing is, more and more women I speak to have said the same thing. They want cool shiz that makes their smiles grow and hearts flutter.

Shop Online Smarter with MasterPass

Shop Online Smarter with MasterPass

With the festive season looming, and chaos levels at malls already on the rise, online shopping for the holidays is looking good! And I found the best way to shop online more efficiently, shop smarter, shop safer and shop with peace of mind thanks to MasterPass. MasterPass is an awesome digital wallet app for your mobile phone. It will save you time and hassle in having to enter your credit or debit card details every time you purchase online (at selected online merchants). You’ll need to register your cards the first time, but these will be saved for future online splurges. Although I know online shopping is pretty safe these days, I still get nervous every time I have to input my credit card details. The mere fact that I have to type these out freaks me out! That’s why I love the MasterPass App, freely available to download from the App Store, Google Play Store, Windows Store or Blackberry World. You can download any bank’s MasterPass App, even if you don’t bank with them. I downloaded the Nedbank MasterPass App, even though I linked my FNB and ABSA cards to my MasterPass App profile. On your app profile you can store a number of credit cards and even debit cards and when you…

Christmas gifting online

Christmas gifting online

After a visit to Sandton City on Sunday, I decided that online Christmas shopping is the way to go. A no-brainer really (after being stomped on by the masses). So, here’s my list of the best places to buy the best gifts: Yuppie Chef.  I am a regular customer and often find the boyfriend the coolest gadgety things here. Etsy.  No need to say more.  An array of the most amazing design items. Happy Socks.  Socks that make you smile. ASOS.  Shopaholics dream. Missibaba.  Oh how I love bags, belts, clutches and jewellery. Exclusive Books.  Because I dream of wall-to-wall bookcases filled with books. Reel Gardening.  Along with chock-a-block bookshelves I’d also like a veggie patch brimming with herbs and delicious veggies.  The guys at Reel Gardening make it simple. Happy shopping, Jen xx www.friendswithjenny.com www.friendswithjenny.co.za
