Gifting eos for Easter

I am counting down the days until Easter (hooray for white dresses and pants!) and while the Easter Bunny will undoubtedly handle my nieces and nephews, I am throwing together some last-minute gifts for all the lovely ladies in my life. eos has made it so easy and inexpensive to gift all of the women who need a little extra pampering. They recently released two limited edition Spring Packs, a lip balm duo and a hand lotion trio, and oh my goodness, they smell delicious! Plus, they are the perfect Easter gifts thanks to their unique shape and beautiful pastel colors, perfect for any basket.

I threw these two baskets together in a pinch using packaging I already had around the house. You can grab eos products at almost any major retailer (i.e. Target, Wal-Mart, Ulta, etc.) which makes them the perfect gifts for procrastinators such as myself. Use a leftover egg carton for the most delicious and soothing Easter eggs you’ve ever had or add in candles and Peeps for a Treat Yo Self basket. Either way, your recipients will be blown away that the kids aren’t the only ones getting spoiled this Easter! Visit eos to learn more about these Spring Packs and to check out more fabulous products.

One of the parts of blogging I love is getting the opportunity to share companies that work with causes close to my heart. 7 Charming Sisters is just that – this jewelry boutique has a deep commitment to helping those with disabilities find jobs. But they take it a step further, employing intellectually disabled people at their studio and helping them earn a commission handcrafting the jewels. So when you purchase a piece of jewelry from 7 Charming Sisters, a portion of your purchase goes to these beautiful souls. Talk about a win-win when their pieces are so fun and wearable!

7 Charming Sisters is the brainchild of seven “work sisters” and you can shop their picks based on the type of women you most relate to: Paula, the elegant Executive, Kim, the vivacious Life of the Party, Jennifer, the dedicated Fashionista, Donalda, the flirtatious Social Butterfly, Jessica, the smart and Sexy Nerd, ¬†Kimberly, the cute All-American Girl and Melissa, the sporty Super Mom. So fun!

ShopBop is offering 20% off of everything under $500 and 25% off of everything over $500 with code EVENT17. These are designer pieces that literally never go on sale. CIS readers are getting a 24-hour head start on the sale too (yay!) so be sure to take advantage of it, because popular items always sell out FAST!

When it is time for me to tackle this sale, I always make sure to purchase the necessities. These are pieces you can wear all Spring and Summer long and will be closet staples for years to come. Denim shorts, oversized sunnies, and neutral sandals are great investment pieces – especially when they’re even less of an investment!

Many of us are gearing up for our Summer vacations, so this sale couldn’t have come at a better time!

ShopBop is my go-to for swimsuit coverups, as well – those tassel and pom pom versions are too cute!
