We can't believe that it's December already and still 80 something degrees! But nonetheless the show must go on, which means the holidays are slowly upon us and more reason to shop, wrap presents, drink eggnog and hang out with friends and family!
In the spirit of giving; we have come up with our favorite things to share with you, our readers and customers. Hoping that it will inspire you to try our favs or buy one of them for that special someone this holiday season. We had fun coming up with these and hope you enjoy finding out more about the girls here at Mana Culture and what we love.
Our Owner, Jahnavi's picks:
Seasons change, skin changes, style's change, these are my personal go to's that keep me feeling beautiful inside and out!

*Capitalist versatile Mineral brow pigment. Makes my brows full, with depth, and never smudges! Get the curved brush makes application super easy!
*Rainbow light vitamins: These keep me charged, never make me nauseous. Available at Central Market, Amazon!
*Tricot Leggings: Shiny and thick, sucks everything in...Just makes your legs look Flawless. I love these, they are my go to every week. Available at Mana Culture only $35
*Crescent Moon Hammered necklace! This is my favorite layering necklace...I wear it most days in gold fill. Made by Mingle, exclusively for us. It feels whimsical and dreamy at the same time. Available at Mana Culture for $68

Our manager, Charlie's picks:
*Korres Milk Protein Face Wash: It's taken me 100 years but I've finally found my perfect face wash. This soap-free formula uses milk proteins to nourish and cleanse the day right off your face. My skin has never been happier!
*Buffy by Lush: Whoa. I am crazy about this thing! It exfoliates, it hydrates, it smells incredible, and I can't even put into words how soft it makes my skin. After the exfoliates rinse away, it leaves a delicious layer of coco and Shea butter to keep you extra smooth. Even my husband (the anti-product) uses it to freshen up his tattoo-covered arms. I give this product a 10!
*Black Orchid Distressed Denim with ankle zipper in Black: I'd just like to take a moment to thank Black Orchid for making the most rad pair of go-to jeans I've ever owned. These bad boys seem custom made for any shape or size, and give just the right amount of edge to any outfit. Me and my tush love them! Available at Mana Culture for $182
*Benefits Benetint in Rose: A girlfriend turned me on to this cheek & lip stain a few years ago and I haven't been without it since! Dab 3-4 drops on the apples of your cheeks and have a flirty flush that lasts all day. (Top it off with Benefits 'Watt's Up', you won't be sorry!)
*Burt's Bees Pomegranate lip balm: This is my addiction talking. A tube of this can be found in almost every coat pocket or bag that I have, and you probably wont catch me with out it on my lips! Simple, delicious, everyday hydration.
Mana girl Hailey's picks:
*Her vintage Turquoise ring given to her by her late Aunt. She wears it every day and loves that it was an heirloom from her family.
*Rag and Bone Army Jacket. Comfy and stylish all in one and goes with everything!
*Nars Jungle Red Lipstick and lip liner. Such a great color for any season and skin tone and goes with anything you wear!
*Lily Lambert's Pink Rose Caramel with Egyptian Sandalwood roll on perfume. Subtle, but soft enough to last the whole day. Available at Mana Culture for $48
*Her 5th favorite is her Record Collection. A fun way to listen to old and new music with friends.
Coming up with just 5 things was a daunting task for me, but here are my all-time favorites and must-haves right now that I can't live without.
*Caudalie Gentle Cleansing Milk face wash. I look forward to washing my face at night in the mornings with this. It's gentle and moisturizing at the same time leaving your skin feeling refreshed and cleansed. Available at Sephora for $28.
*I have crazy, thick, frizzy curly hair so my go-to product is "It's A 10 Leave-in Conditioner with Keratin." It gives my hair that extra boost of moisture that I always need and smells divine. Hoda from The Today Show was the one who turned me on to this product and I haven't looked back since! Any beauty store or Target carries it.
*Easy Bamboo Tops in cherry red and royal blue. I just discovered these a few weeks ago and I can't stop wearing them and buying them! They are soft and the perfect top for any outfit. I'm obsessed! Available at Mana Culture for $43 in different colors.
*Emergen-c packets. Super Orange flavor is my favorite. I take one every morning mixed with a cold glass of water. It keeps my immune system up and gives me an extra jolt in the morning. I get mine at Target in a box set for about $8.99 - so worth it!
*You will hardly ever see me without at least one Stone on a String around my neck. I have 4 at the moment and the amount keeps growing. I love these because they are delicate and simple and make a great layering piece. Plus, each stone has different meanings, which add a special quality when wearing it. Available at Mana Culture for $39.
