With Christmas just one month away (seriously - it's in 4 weeks!), I thought I would start sharing a few gift guides for all of you doing your holiday shopping and looking for gift ideas. In this first roundup, I've teamed up with Ulta Beauty to share some awesome tools for the Beauty Techies in your life.
It's time for me to share the contents of my makeup bag for the month! I've really been loving writing these posts for the past few months, and I hope you guys have been enjoying them too. It's always fun seeing what other people have in their makeup bags, so let's dive into mine for November.
I'm so excited to introduce this month's sponsors to you guys! I've got five amazing bloggers to share today, and I'm sure you'll quickly add them to your favorites after giving them a read.

Every year around the holidays, I get so wrapped up in shopping for others that I can forget to take care of myself as well. This can be a stressful time of the year and it's important to be mindful of how we're doing so we don't get stressed out and overwhelmed. Target has challenged me to put myself at the top of my list this year by picking out a few versatile pieces to keep me looking fashionable this holiday season.
For this first look, I wanted to go with something a little dressier that could be worn to church or out to dinner. The Mossimo Black Drapey Tee* paired perfectly with black skinny jeans and ankle boots for a chic (and super comfortable!) ensemble. I decided to stick with the all-black theme by using the Under One Sky Black Tote* as my bag of choice. Then, to add a pop of color, I slicked on some of the Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Fatal Apple* (a gorgeous bright apple red).
For a more casual, everyday outfit, I paired the black tee* with some distressed skinnies and brown flats. This top is really light and soft, so it goes well with a jacket or cardigan over top on chillier days. Then, I've got my black tote*, which is big enough to carry everything I need without being too bulky (plus it literally goes with everything). And, lastly, another pop of the Fatal Apple lip gloss by Revlon* - currently my favorite red lip gloss ever.
Now I challenge you guys to start your holiday shopping off by treating yourself to something nice from Target's Wonderlist. The list includes everything from clothing and accessories to beauty products and home decor, so you're sure to find something cute for yourself while shopping for your loved ones.

When it comes to hair products, I struggle to find ones that work the wonders they claim to on the packaging. My hair is thick, dry, and coarse in areas, as well as being rather frizzy from natural waviness. I got the opportunity to trial products from Living Proof (using their amazing product selector for a haircare routine chosen specifically with my needs in mind) - here are my thoughts on how the products worked.
