Every year I like to feature my five favorite gifts that are must haves on her wish list. This year I am rounding up the most popular products on the blog and showcasing why she is going to LOVE them!
On top of my monthly HydraFacials I use my PMD beauty products at home. PMD is a premier beauty company offering smart beauty tools and skincare products that inspire and build Brilliant Confidence. They have been working hard to develop new beauty products utilizing smart, safe and convenient technology including: patented spinning disc (Personal Microderm), patent pending vacuum pulsation (PMD Kiss), and SonicGlow technology (PMD Clean).
The PMD Clean and Personal Microderm tools are a part of my weekly skincare routine.
PMD Clean is a smart facial cleansing device with over 7,000 vibrations per minute. This SonicGlow technology not only ensures a deep cleanse, but provides a way to lift, firm, and tone problem areas for a more youthful appearance. The vibrations in the SonicGlow are key to breaking down dirt and oil from within the while operating at a perfect frequency to lift, firm, and tone the skin. I use the wavy side to massage my skin after applying product which helps the skincare to penetrate deeper into my skin. The side with gentle knobs is used for cleansing.
The Personal Microderm device is a revolutionary at-home skincare tool! After having babies and with age, my hormones have changed which means that my skin has changed too. I tend to get small bumps around my chin area from over production of oils. The Personal Microderm is wonderful for exfoliating these problem areas to remove and help prevent these blemishes from popping up! I have noticed that my skin seems brighter and much smoother in between my facial treatments when I use the Personal Microderm.
PMD is committed to building confidence in your skin and your inner self. OMD also gives back. Your support has allowed PMD to give back and make a difference with families all across the world.

Purelei Jewelry designs are so unique and the quality is amazing. Not to mention, they are designed right here in the USA, Hawaii to be exact, hence the name Purelei! The story behind the brand will have you falling in love all over again. In 2012 german student and founder, Alisa, spent a semester abroad in Hawaii. She fell in love with our beautiful island and frequently visited after returning home. She decided that everyone should get to share in the beauty of Hawaii and so Purelei was born.
The Aloha spirit, embodied in PURELEI, is not only a passion, but a lifestyle. Memories of the fresh, flower-scented air and the crystal clear Hawaiic waters guide and inspire you every day. Elaborate designs, high-quality materials and selected fitting forms make this brand exclusive and individual. Each accessory is special in its own way.
My favorite pieces from the line include the Hoku Earrings, Li IlI’I’ Necklace , Manaoio Necklace, Dream Deeper Bangle, Dream Higher Bangle and the hair collection. All of the items were of amazing durability and quality. I received several compliments on the first day of wearing my new pieces, especially on the Hoku Earrings! Want some Purelei to add to your stocking stuffer list? My readers will be receiving 30% off their purchase with promo code: ALEXANDRANICOLE30
ZENZ from Isotoner
I have always loved Isotoners as an indoor house slipper but Isotoner is really hitting the mark this season with their ZENZ™ indoor/outdoor shoe. I love the flexibility with every step as the shoe moves with you. ZENZ from Isotoner is made with Everywhere™ Technology that is better than memory foam. This weightless, wear-proof, non-slip innovation resists compression for life! This will provide your mom, sister, or the lady in your life life-long comfort!
Need something for the men in your life? They also have mens style as well! I have both the Serenity Slip on in black and the Balance Slip on in Grey. Isotoner has created a healthy line of hues within the ZENZ portfolio so you are sure to find a color that she will love!
Sarah Jessica Parker Wine
What gal doesn’t love Sex in the City, and even better than the show, Sarah Jessica Parker! SJP is not only the fashion guru of our time but she is the epitome of class with her fragrance collection, shoe line and now wine portfolio!
I am a Sauvignon Blanc gal and the INIVO X by SJP takes the gold. This New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc was made to a special blend created by Sarah Jessica Parker in partnership with the fellas at Invivo. The result: a tropical style with a smooth and long finish. A versatile wine that’s great with food or on its own. As a passionately creative person, Sarah Jessica Parker has been instrumental in both naming the wine and designing the label. The X and the comma directly after it, is an intentional and personal touch, referencing her signature email and Instagram post signoff: “X, SJ.” The wine drinking lady in your life will be swooning that she gets to be a part of her favorite TV gal pal’s new business venture with INVIVO.
Dermablade and HydraFacial Package
with A Beautiful You Medical Spa
Everyone knows by now that my most sworn by monthly beauty treatment is the HydraFacial and Dermablade package with A Beautiful You Medical Spa.
The HydraFacial is a medical-grade resurfacing treatment that clears your pores out, plus hydrates your skin. The four-step treatment includes cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, and hydrating the skin with serums that are infused into pores with the HydraPeel Tip, pen-like device. I like to pair this treatment with a dermablade exfoliation. The dermablade is a manual exfoliation technique that removes surface debris and fine hair with a custom Dermaplaning blade. This treatment is an anti-aging skincare treatment without the use of chemicals that will leave your skin smooth and glowing. I recommend getting a package of 3 to start so that she can treat herself once a month for best results. A Beautiful You is offering a 3 HydraFacial package for just $360, normally $599! Just mention that you saw the special over on City Chic Living blog and they will honor it!
I hope you enjoyed my top picks for her this year! If you want to share them with your gal pals or the man in your life (giving him gift ideas), feel free to pin the image below. Happy Holidays!
