Email to a friend: My Birthday List from the Row
Anthropologie: “A Rather Novel Collection Eau De Parfum” - $48.00 each.
Pink Stripes is another great place to go for gifts. Though it’s one of the smaller stores on Santana Row, it is chalk full of cuteness: adorable trends at reasonable prices, great makeup and accessories, and even candy for those birthday girls with a sweet tooth! For example, the dress below couldn’t be any more perfect for summer, and it’s only $62!
Pink Stripes: “Lace Peplum Dress” - $62.00
Another one of my favorite stores on Santana Row is Jest Jewels. Walking into that store gives me the same feeling I used to get when I would walk into a candy store as a little girl. This store has an unlimited supply of costume jewelry (which just happens to be one of my favorite things). However, don’t be fooled by the term “costume” jewelry. This isn’t jewelry that you would find in a Halloween box. This is big, fun jewelry that makes a statement and sets you apart as an individual. I am currently big on a trend I like to call “arm candy”, which is a cute way to say lots and lots of bracelets! I love the bangles below from Jest Jewels because they have a little bit of everything a girl could want: gold, silver, pearls, and diamonds!
Jest Jewels: “Bangles - Set of 11 Gold & Pearl” - $24.00
As a person who cares about the environment, I love 100% Pure. Their store’s entire focus is on being natural, cruelty free, and as their name says, pure. This means that their products are not only good for the environment and for animals, but they are good for you as well. No chemicals or preservatives will ever touch their makeup or skincare, which means that none of that ever touches your skin. One of the best parts about this store is that their products actually work. Some may be wary about the richness of their colors or the effectiveness of their merchandise, but those things should not be of concern. Because the colors are drawn straight from fruits and vegetables, they are vibrant and true, and I can say from personal experience that their line of products definitely works. For my birthday, I am hoping for the “Fruit Pigmented Ginger Eye Shadow” because it is a beautiful, light color for summer and the “Blackberry Pigmented Gel Eyeliner” because it adds drama with a stunning purple black.
100% Pure: “Blackberry Pigmented Gel Eyeliner” - $18.00
100% Pure: “Fruit Pigmented Ginger Eye Shadow” - $15.00
Another gift that I would love to get for my birthday, or for any occasion for that matter, is the Santana Row gift card. This gift card is good throughout Santana Row and can be used at our spas, salons, restaurants, shops, hotel, and even the movie theater. With this gift card, I could do just about anything I want!
