You may think that gift cards are impersonal, but college students are often living on a tight budget so extra money (in whatever form) will be welcomed for the holidays. Cards to purchase purchase clothing and/or electronics are always a good idea for students.
Your fashion loving friend and family in your life will definitely love the pieces on my friend's new online boutique, Inside Sasha's Closet. The boutique carries clothing that are chic and one-of-a-kind like the spike out mini dress below.
The Natural Sista
For the past month I've been using Curly Queen Whipped Shea Butter and my hair LOVES it. The whipped consistency melts into your hair and is super moisturizing. It's a great product that can help you combat dryness especially in the colder months. It can also double up as a skin moisturizer. Her All Over Mango Shea skin moisturizer works wonders for dry skin, and her products are super affordable.
The Career Minded Sista
