It’s almost Valentine’s Day! The day of love and romance and chocolate, and we could go into the capitalist hellscape this day has become, but I think the fact that people enjoy expressing their love for one another is something uplifting and heartwarming (especially in troubling times like these). Yet, no matter what your opinion is, when it comes to gifts, it’s always easy to run into trouble. . .so here’s a solution.

Before we begin, if you don’t take my Disney-obsessed word for it, feel free to check shopDisney’s Valentine’s Day Gift Guide yourself, but if you don’t even have time to browse, here are ten amazing, eye-catching, and heartfelt Disney gifts for the day of love that range from 100 and under.

1. Mickey and Minnie Mug Set — $27.99

There they are, the eternal soulmates, the couple forever stuck in the Honeymoon phase, right there on an adorable mug set, excitedly looking at one another (you know Mickey has a romantic picnic already planned). Personally, I think set gifts are always a great idea, because each person has something to remind them of one another and these mugs when placed together form a heart. Can it get any cuter? I don’t think it’s possible.

Although, if your lovebug doesn’t prefer Mickey and Minnie, than no problem. Disney has a Beauty and the Beast set.

2. Mickey and Minnie CRISLU Cuff — $100

This beautiful baby is the perfect accessory to any outfit—it’s simple, sleek, and finished in the oh, so famous rose gold color. Also, do you noticed how one side is Mickey and the other is Minnie? You’ve got the world’s greatest couple on one wrist.


3. Valentine’s Day Bangles — $44.95

Any of these gorgeous Alex and Ani bangles are just the icing on top of the Valentine’s Day cake (or cupcake or cookie, whatever you prefer). Now, Lovebird #1, make sure to get Lovebird #2’s favorite Disney couple if you’re picking this gift—all of them are stunning, but it’s the personal touch that adds the magic.

The photo will send you to Aurora and Philip’s bangle, but you can find all of these bracelets and many others on the shopDisney site.


4. Yoda Pin — $12.99

Any Star Wars fans out there? Well, if you’re reading this, can we agree that this might be the most adorable Valentine’s pin ever? From the colors, to Yoda’s pink robes (and his smile), and the “mine will you be” phrase, it just seems to scream “pick me, pick me, pick me!” at you.

Of course, if you’re not a big fan of Yoda, the do have a Leia and Han set. (Yeah, Disney always has your back).


4. Cinderella Coach Necklace — $114.95






Yes, this one is above 100, I gave out a little groan when I saw the price as well. But Cinderella’s carriage is one of the most iconic love story symbols and look at how dazzling this necklace is; the little diamond detailing really keeps dragging me back to it. If you’ve got a partner who is a huge Cinderella fan, this is the item for you.


5. Castle Earrings by Rebecca Hook — $75

A lot of the time, companies pump out shirt after shirt or trinket after trinket and nothing ever looks unique enough to purchase, but sometimes companies get merchandise exactly right and that’s what happened with these. They don’t scream “Valentine’s” but they’re the perfect gift for any Disney fan that you’re looking to make smile (and possibly cry). They sparkle, they’ve got two popular Disney symbols in one, and guess what. . .they’re rose gold!


6. Lady and the Tramp Heart Pin Set — $12.99


So we've got the heart shape, check. The vibrant colors, check. The greatest doggy duo ever, check. And you can separate them so each of you get a half? I'm sold.


7. Mickey and Minnie Sweethearts Plush Throw — $36.99




It seems the lovebirds were able to jump off their mugs and get to one another just in time to celebrate Valentine’s Day! With this throw blanket, you’ll have no problem cozying up to the one you love.

And if you like the design but you’re not to keen on the blanket, no worries. Disney has this super awesome baseball cap with an identical image, minus the floating hearts.


8. Beauty and the Beast Rose Pin — $9.99


Yes, another pin, but how can you deny the legendary enchanted rose? With elegant stained-“glass” detailing, it’s sure to mesmerize any Beauty and the Beast fan.


9. Snow White Besame Lip Gloss — $18.95


Makeup is always a little tricky, but this lip gloss is from the Snow White Bésame collection! Bésame worked hard to create the exact (and similar) colors that graced the face of Snow White, the very first princess! It just so happens that these shades match with Valentine’s Day colors (Coincidence? Probably, but I know we’re all screaming “I think not!” in our heads.)

This lipgloss would make a great gift for your partner or friend or sister, etc.


10. Cinderella Glass Slipper by Arribas — $44

And last but not least, oh yeah, it’s the actual glass slipper! It’s magical, it’s romantic, it makes you clutch your heart and sigh. If I dare say, this is most likely the most popular and well known princess symbol, and it’s definitely the perfect fit for any lovestruck Cinderella fan.

It’s personalizable and also comes in a bigger, medium size (this size will cost a little more, but hey, it’s a magical glass slipper, either way it’s a bargain).

Oh look, we’ve made it to the end. Now, if you fancy any of these for your partner or sibling or friend (or even yourself, sh, I won’t tell) make sure to choose Express Shipping so it can get here before Valentine’s Day. But, if you know for sure it’s not going to get here for Valentine’s Day, don’t panic!

This holiday isn’t about gifts, so in the meantime while you’re waiting, make sure to let your partner know that you care about them and love them. After all, in “That’s How You Know” from “Enchanted,” Giselle doesn’t sing about jewelry, she sings about love notes, flowers, and dancing. In the end, it’s the little things that count.

Why I Can't Support Jeffree Star

I used to idolize him, but his racism and misogyny have crossed the line.
59615

Like any other person obsessed with makeup, I follow many different makeup artists on YouTube and Instagram. I love watching their tutorials and reviews, all which leave me inspired to try new looks and teach me more about products that will up my makeup game. One of these beauty gurus that I used to follow is Jeffree Star, a singer/songwriter, model, and makeup artist who is probably best known for his popular makeup line, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, which features liquid lipsticks, lip scrubs, highlighters, and a new eyeshadow palette.

However, as of late, his cosmetic line isn’t the only thing making him a hot topic on social media; his extensive history of making racist comments has now become the subject of many YouTube videos by other vloggers and beauty gurus. One of the most disturbing incidents is a video he made ten years ago on MySpace. The video is supposed to be a satirical skit between him and a drag queen, who is in blackface. One of the disgusting comments made in the video is that he wants to throw battery acid on an African American woman to lighten her skin so it will match her foundation. Star also calls someone a “black b*tch” while his friend continues to pretend to be a stereotypical black woman. Even if the video was made ten years ago, he was still an adult at the time and should have known better than to make something so vile and racist. If he had been 15 years-old, that’s one thing. But he was at least 19 years-old at the time; there are no excuses.

TW: racism, racial slurs


Star has become infamous also for being a drama queen on social media, whether to be rude to fans complaining about his products or starting Twitter wars with other makeup artists. While most people know about his beef with Kylie Jenner over some defects with her liquid lipsticks, Star’s issues go far beyond just her. One feud that highlights his misogynistic and racist behavior is with MakeupShayla, another makeup artist. At an event they both attended, in his Snapchat story Star ranted that Shayla allegedly told another YouTouber that her face was disproportionate and to get lip fillers. Whether or not this was actually said in a rude manner, like he claims, is unknown. He then proceeded to rage about her being a c*nt and a h*e. Even though that comment had sent him in such a rage, Shayla said in her Snapchat story that he was all smiles when they ran into each other at the event.

On Twitter, the situation became even more intense. He called her out first for making the lip filler comment; if she had indeed said something rude like that, then confronting her about it is fine. However, he escalated things to a terrifying level. He threatened to beat her up several times, and when she criticized his fans for supporting someone who threatens violence against a woman, Star responded that she looks like man. I find it very ironic that he would claim that she was a bully, yet threaten her and hurl terrible insults at her. Shayla should not have made the rude comment about that woman needing lip fillers; however, she does not deserve to be threatened or insulted in this manner, especially since Star was too much of a coward to say anything to her face.

Moreover, despite his claims to be so against bullying, and to be such a supporter of female empowerment, he is friends with a bully. In one of his Snapchat stories, MannyMUA and the owner of Gerard Cosmetics made fun of a YouTuber who was reviewing the company’s products. In the last part of the Snapchats, the owner said that the reviewer was an ugly person. Manny later tried to apologize and say that the video cut off and that the owner was saying she had an ugly personality, but that’s not exactly better. Despite this incident, Jeffree and Manny are still the best of friends, and Manny was never beat up by Star for being rude. Moreover, it seems as though Star has a way of corrupting beauty gurus who become a part of his inner circle. When Manny was primarily friends with Patrick Starr, another makeup artist, he was kinder and he wasn’t rude. But once Star came into the picture, Manny became his carbon-copy: another gay boy acting like a stereotypical black woman and covering up his rudeness by calling it “sass” and “shade.” Plus, it is shocking to me that Manny, a person of color, would still adore Star despite his racist history. I feel guilty now for talking about him in my last piece about makeup double standards.

Stephanie Nicole, a makeup artist on YouTube, made a video reviewing a few of Star’s products. Then, once she’s finished the review, she then goes on to discuss Star’s racist and misogynistic tendencies, showing videos of his Snapchat rant against MakeupShayla, his disturbing skit, and other instances where he was rude to fans and problematic in general. She concludes that she refuses to support his company anymore. I agree with her completely. Just because he is a part of a minority group by being queer does not give him the right to be racist or misogynistic. You can watch the entire video down below:

I was extremely conflicted when I heard about all of this. In fact, I was almost heartbroken; I have admired Star for a long time because of how he breaks gender roles and goes against the gender binary. I also coveted his products, and was very ready to purchase his Skin Frost highlighters and some liquid lipsticks up until I found out that he’s a racist. I have some of his music on my iTunes because some of his tracks are fun for workouts, but now I feel guilty even though I just did not know. However, I do know that I will not be supporting Jeffree Star anymore, no matter how tempting his products are.

If you still want to buy his cosmetics, go ahead, I can’t stop you. I have no right to tell you how to spend your money. I don’t blame you; he produces some great makeup after all, even though he is a trashy person. However, if you bought his products before finding out about his problematic behavior, and now regret your purchases, I advise that next time you research a company before giving them your money. It’s difficult to enjoy a product when you know it’s produced by an unpleasant person. This experience has taught me a valuable lesson about being an informed consumer and not simply buying something because it has pretty packaging.
