Alpha Male Cosmetics has created one of the most perfect male cosmetics lines. With natural-looking skin tones and products, they never disappoint with the beauty of a man. The complete line is water-based which allows you to hide blemishes, skin spots, and acne, while never compromising a natural look. Available in 24 shades of foundation, it’s the only men’s line to have such a complete line of shades for all of our skin tones. Owner Anttoni Lopez states, “Five years ago, the morning grooming routine for most men was shampoo, shave and maybe a bit of hair gel.” These days, guys are taking better care of themselves. “They want to feel and look good. It has become a trend that is only getting bigger.” So, hurry up and get yours today for those holiday photos and small gatherings this year.

Mmmmmmmm, nothing like the smell of warm apple pie for holidays. That is right: ForeverWick is giving us a fall favorite this year. These unique candles offer a standard wick option or four wick option along with two options for diamonds. That is right DIAMONDS! Each candle comes with your choice of one or two diamonds that range in size as a surprise. They promise you can find diamonds up to full carats and someone this holiday season will win a diamond worth $12,000. Sales will not last long and there are over 20 scents for you to pick from just in case WAP is not your style.
Holiday shopping is something I always enjoy for friends and family. I especially love shopping for my husband each year! Time is running out and if you plan to order online gifts, you may want to have them gift wrapped and sent directly to your loved ones (it also saves on shipping cost) as services are slower this year. May you be blessed with holiday cheer, joy, happiness, and be able to spend the holidays with someone special this year.
