Welcome to an all-new beauty edit! I hope you're ready for Thanksgiving and weekend shopping!! I have a Black Friday guide coming out, and you can get a sneak peek right here >, and stay tuned for a Shop Small Holiday Gift Guide this Saturday! For today's guide, I've included some of my monthly beauty faves and some very #giftworthy items. A lot of the brands mentioned here are also included in my big 5K Insta Giveaway, so you won't want to miss the chance to win. Don't miss the big sales and coupon codes below either. Enjoy!

The first beauty gift idea is a way to spoil someone else and to get something nice for yourself as well. At Sitronu you can get a free Mini Gift Set with the purchase of any gift sets over $35. The mini gift set includes a 1 oz Zesty Sítrus shampoo, 1 oz Rósmarín Lavender bath salts, 1 oz. honey turbinado sugar scrub, and two sample size lotions.

Cranberry-Blueberry Muffins


I love muffins during the holiday season. It's an excuse to have cake for breakfast, really, just without the frosting. And while we all dream of a big pancake breakfast straight out of a Christmas movie, the reality is we're all so busy. If you're already busy enough preparing a holiday meal, but you still want to give your overnight guests something homemade in the morning, go for pastries. These muffins can be prepped ahead of time and refrigerated for a few days, so all you have to do in the morning is pop them in the oven.



INGREDIENTS
  • 1 & 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • dash of ground cinnamon
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup whole milk (use unsweetened almond milk or lactaid for a dairy-free option)
  • 1/4 cup butter softened (or vegetable oil)
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries (to use dried cranberries, soak them in warm water for about 15 minutes, until they soften and plump) 
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Adapted from Jeremiah's Favorite Cranberry Muffins by Foods of Our Lives.

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Add the egg, milk, vanilla, and oil and combine until smooth (little lumps are okay).
  4. Spray your muffin tin with non-stick spray or use paper liners, and fill each muffin mold about 3/4 full.
  5. Bake 15-20 minutes until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
