Holiday Gift Guide + Another Smile Brilliant Giveaway!

November 29, 2018
Hello friends, and happy almost December! Welcome to this year's Holiday Gift Guide & Ideas!

I'm more than sure we can all agree that the holidays are coming up so quickly, much like every year. So, to make your holiday shopping a little less stressful, I've come up with a Holiday Gift Guide for you! And if you keep reading, you'll find out how to enter my second giveaway with the amazing teeth whitening company, Smile Brilliant! So read on ;)

First up we have Kristin Ess' new line of hair care appliances and products. These new straighteners and curling irons are being sold at Target for a fraction of the cost of mainstream tools. I have the Beach Wave curling iron, the Soft Wave curling iron, and the 3 in 1 flat iron. I really love the way they style my hair, and if you're forgetful like me, they turn off automatically after being on for too long.

My current favorite product is the texture spray to finish off any look, whether it be curly or straight. It gives dimension to my thin and flat hair, so I would definitely recommend this to people who have the same hair type as me!

Of course on Cyber Monday I was on all of my favorite clothing websites, wishing I could buy everything in sight. Some of the popular looks this season are teddy bear coats, and midi skirts worn with sweaters. Here are some you can buy for any of your fashionista friends and family members.

Next up I have some subscription ideas for you. So I currently receive Stitch Fix boxes every few months and I really love them. You can adjust your price range, take a style quiz, and control how often you receive the boxes. It's a $20 styling fee, and then that 20 bucks goes towards something in the box that you want to buy! So if you like a shirt that's $40, you'll only pay an additional $20 for it. Then whatever you don't like, you send back in the paid packaging they provide you. Easy! You can purchase the first box as a gift and then if they like it, they can continue getting a Fix however often they'd like!
Sign up with my code and receive $25 credit!

Another one I really like is Munch Pak. You can send someone a one time gift, or a subscription of snacks and drinks from around the world. I mean come on, that's so fun! You can choose how many snacks go in each box, sweet or savory, and what kind of snacks you're looking for! If you have a food loving friend in your life, this one is for them.

I'm sure you've seen the ads on Instagram and Facebook, but Ipsy is a really fun subscription for makeup junkies. It's $10 per bag, and it comes with mini versions of popular products sold at Ulta and Sephora! This gives people a chance to test something out before they commit to buying the larger version!

Lastly, some dental care suggestions for you. I currently use the new Quip toothbrush and I absolutely love it. The toothbrush vibrates for two minutes, ensuring that you are brushing your teeth for a healthy amount of time. Upon purchase of the toothbrush, you can then go online and sign up for a certain package that will automatically send you a new toothbrush head and batteries to change every 3 months or so. You can find it sold at Target here!

And now for the awaited giveaway!

As for the Smile Brilliant teeth whitening system, I spoke about this last year because I was so in love with these products. For details on how to use the system, refer to my post here.

In combination with my new toothbrush, my teeth have never felt (or looked) better!

Happy Holidays everyone! :)

Halloween Dinner Party 2018

November 20, 2018
If you knew me at all, you'd know Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday.
I will say, every year I have a blast on Halloween, no matter what I do. I spent last year and this year celebrating in Salem which was amazing, but I didn't want the fun to end there! I decided to throw an amazing dinner party to celebrate, and it was the most amazing Halloween celebration ever!

Even the food and drinks were creepy and disgusting! (Looking, not tasting. Those stuffed peppers were everything). Not to mention I had bleeding black candlesticks. I don't play around.

And of course I had to dress up! Here I am as Violet from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! Such a classic.

So it was spooky, huh? >: )
Personally, I think it came out beautiful- I hope you do, too!
Until next year, Halloween. I'll be counting down the days!

Raffles for Robbie

This year I had the honor of being Tri Sigma's event planner for our sorority's annual Tricky Tray, Raffles for Robbie! Basically, the event is a fancy raffles brunch, where you can purchase tickets to win some amazing baskets. This year, there were over 150 baskets you could win! I put out the good vibes and went home with three baskets, which is amazing because I legit never win anything. *Just a little bitter*
This event was so beautiful! It was at the Glen Ridge Country Club, and the staff there was incredible! Not to mention the space was perfect, bright, and easy to match colors with! What more could you ask for?

We raised over $14,000 toward our philanthropies! How great is that!
Special shout out to my amazing sorority, Sigma Sigma Sigma, for always going above and beyond for everything that we do. It's organizations like us who truly make a difference in the world, and I am so proud to be a Sigma!

I used all of my own inventory to create this event, so if you like what you see and want to rent it for your next event, feel free to email me at, or DM me on Instagram! @scarpacidesigns @amandascarpaci

Flowers: Global Rose
Venue: Glen Ridge Country Club
