Treat someone else or yourself

Updated: Oct 3, 2020

Hey guys.

It’s Lay.

I’m so happy it’s October because Libra season is finally here! My birthday is coming up and even if I can’t celebrate, I’m just happy to make it to another birthday. So in honor of it, I kinda wanted to make a list of ideas of things to buy. October is just the start of the holiday season and I personally did see a lot of things I would like to either get for someone else or even if I want to treat myself one day. Either way, if you need any gift ideas or inspiration this is the perfect blog post for you.


I had to start with this one because I love reading and I think more people should read because there’s so much variety and sometimes it’s good to step away from TV shows and movies as entertainment. Books aren't for everyone but there is so much they are good for. They can teach you something new, bring you to a whole other world, they connect you to your emotions and so much more based on the genre

If you know someone into self-care, this is a great thing for beginners. Personally, I find things like manifesting and the law of attraction and energy in general really interesting and if you know someone who looks for different spirituality practices this is a good choice.

My friend actually read this book and loved it so I've been wanting to read it ever since. This is a poetry book and if you know me and my friends we adore poetry books and at least for me, it's probably my favorite genre to help me connect with myself.

I want this book because my word of the year was unapologetic and as a black woman, I feel like I would have a connection to this book based on the summary and the first pages I read.

Another poetry book because it sounded so good.

I actually read part of this but never finished because I had to return the book to the library. I would love to finish it. Also, a lot of the negative reviews were mainly they felt it was inappropriate for young readers.

As a skincare junkie, I had to throw in a beauty book.

Beauty + Fragrance

I have a huge love for beauty even though I know I don’t speak about it much on here. I love makeup and I love experimenting with different things. Just note Everything I’m listing is mainly for Oily skin. Knowing your skin type and your skin type is the most essential things to skincare. As for the fragrances, they are supposed to be more on the sweeter side because I personally prefer sweeter sense but for some people, they like more spice-scented products. The makeup is also based on preference. Some people like a glossy lip while others prefer a solid matte. Some like light/ natural eyeshadow, others don't. If you are shopping for beauty for someone else make sure you know them well enough from skin type, allergies, scent preferences, etc.

3.Soft Pinch Liquid Blush ( Joy, Love, and Grace are my personal favorites)

4.Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer (Hot Chocolit & Fenty Glow are my favorites)


If you or someone you know is interested in photography, I think the perfect thing to make them is a prop box. I thought about creating one for myself because being at home doesn’t mean we can‘t still take aesthetic pictures or feel good about ourselves. The thing I love most about photography is there’s so much freedom to it to create whatever you want and you can have a photoshoot with whatever theme you like. Photography can vary from background to accessories for it. I don't have any particular links for this one but get creative as possible.


For people who miss the nail salon: Nail Set, Nail Care kit

For the ones who are spiritual: Self-care Oracle cards, Another Oracle deck, Healing Crystals

People into health and fitness: Water bottle, Yoga mat

I'm sorry this was shorter than my usual content but I still hope you enjoyed this read regardless and I hope this list gave you gift ideas or if not you found something that you liked for yourself too. Don't forget to come back next week. I'm having a reset day, so I hope I get back to normal by today. Anyways, that's all for today: have a good day, evening, or night and stay healthy and safe. I hope you'll come back next Saturday for more content.

Until next time,

xoxo Lay 💋
