Although, Editor’s Choice Project has been mostly for creating outfits, we thought that this month, since it is full with Gift Guides, this edition should encompass some of our favorite products/brands that we grew to love in 2014!
Each week, each editor, selects a theme and then her must-have products that best describe the subject. This week, we came together to give you a list, that all of us: Andrada, Andra and myself included, think are the items to buy this Christmas. From beauty products to lingerie, we got you covered.

#3. Lace Thong 5-Pack
Lace is the finest fabric and besides silk, the most suitable for lingerie! Although, we love our cotton daily wear, you feel like a million bucks when wearing something a bit more elegant.
Here you have 5 pairs, each in a different color, for all your different moods. If I were you, I would go for:
- White Monday
- Pink Tuesday
- Orange Wednesday
- Purple Thursday
- Black Friday
#4. Lardini Coat
No winter without a new coat! This pink Lardini’s coat, is a must-have piece for all the business ladies out here! The elegance, the quality, the softness, the feeling, the confidence; all in just one piece of clothing! Aren’t designer clothes just amazing? Simple, and yet, sophisticated! These are the items you need to look for, especially if you are in a leading position.
#5. Paula Dorf’s 15 Piece Lipgloss Gift Set
Do you remember my enthusiast when I first used Paula Dorf’s product? It was Paula Dorf 2+1For Brows + Get A FREE Brow Brush and I was in awe with it, I use it daily and at the moment cannot think of a better product for my eye brows.
Although it is just one gift set, it actually contains 3 lipgloss sets. Energetic reds for the girl who lives on the edge, enchanting pinks for the girl looking for a touch of class, and barely there nudes for the girl next door. This would be an awesome gift for your girlfriends, it they are these type of girls.
#6. Waves Iphone 5S Case
First, I love the interaction you can have by customizing this product: you can choose your favorite color and see the model in 3D, making it so easy to imagine yourself with it on your Iphone. I know that all the Apple lovers, already have the 6 version, but for all of you, that love the 5S because of it’s elegant design (yes, I love the 5S more than 6!), this interlaced, wood-like, wavy texture case will remind you of an abstract fashion illustration.
#7. Shooting Star
This is your eye makeup kit to always keep in your purse. It can save you plenty of time and plus, whenever you are at work and someone is asking you out, in a few minutes you can create an evening makeup without having to go by your place. It is small and so convenient.

- Team with deeply smokey eyes in matte Eye Define Charcoal.
- Wonderful, workable lustres, rich in pigment and mica.

#8. Shimmer Shimmer Lip Colour Set
The color selection in this set is absolutely fantastic! From the passion-red, to the every-day nude jumps to party-plum. I would say, pick one color and make the others two a gift for your girlfriends, but I won’t, because you need these shades in your makeup bag! These are shiny lipsticks, that will provide a fuller look for your lips. It is a must must have! (I am not saying ‘must‘ twice because I am tired, I really mean it!)
#9. Mary Elizabeth Nurture Gift Set
Really affordable and so good your you! With only the best ingredients and organic oils, this set will do what it says – NURTURE. I am in love (I do love lots of products) with their 3 Must Have Mary Elizabeth Organic Based Skincare Products and I am always recommending them.
Regarding this set, it contains:
- Spearmint & Tea Tree Nurture Balm: packed with moisturising Shea Butter, vitamin enriched oils and beneficial Spearmint and Tea Tree Essential Oils
- Juniper & Jojoba Hand Cream: vitamin enriched cream combines Jojoba and Calendula Oils with Juniper, Geranium and Chamomile.
#10. Kimono In Seta Stampata
This one is pricey, but it is Loretta Caponi! Pure silk printed with big edge in silk satin black, it is the jewel you want to wear before bed, the sophisticated accessory you want your loved one to touch and take off. There is no need for words to describe this product and if you can afford, please invest in this marvelous kimono.
#11. Eve Taylor’s Triple C
Not too long ago, we wrote about Eve Taylor’s Amazing Skincare Routines where we featured four to die for beauty products. For this gift guide, I chose the Triple C, because I find it the most useful for this season, or for a 20+ year old skin. Vitamin C helps brighten, protect and fight the signs of aging, at the same time, powerful anti-oxidants guard against free radicals.
