Cheers to Friday, everyone! Can you believe we just have a little over two weeks until Christmas? We are so busy until then: tonight is my niece’s Christmas program – I’m so excited to see it! We have a party after the recital, my work Christmas party is next week, J’s dinner for his agents is Friday, Saturday is our annual Christmas Carol day, the week after is my annual girls’ Christmas dinner, then we’ll be going home for the holidays! And we’re trying to push out a huge release at work in the meantime. We’re also leaving the day after Christmas for Hilton Head and Savannah, so things are crazy! I’m trying to soak it all in and keep my house clean. 🙂
A few things I’m loving this week:
Zoya Magical Mystery Lips and Tips Quad: I picked up this Zoya holiday kit on a whim during a recent trip to Ulta. I’ve used Zoya in the past and forgot how great the quality was! These are the perfect shimmery colors for the holidays. I painted my nails last Thursday and they haven’t chipped! Bonus: it includes a lipstick as well! I haven’t used the lipstick yet but the color is a fun purple.
Christmas Potpourri: I did this last year and we decided to repeat it. Combine water, orange and lemon slices, cloves, cinnamon, and cranberries in a pan and simmer on the stove. Your entire house will smell like Christmas! One batch lasts a few days for us, but make sure to refill the water: I came home from work earlier this week and J had let the water burn out, destroying the pan!
FabFitFun Winter Box: I finally signed up for the FabFitFun subscription and received my first box this week! I cancelled all of my subscription boxes this year after too many disappointing samples and repeated products. While FabFitFun is pricier than Birchbox, et al, it’s quarterly and includes many full-sized, high-end products. I won’t spoil what was in my winter box, but I was pleasantly surprised! The value was over $250! If you’d like to try it, use this link for $10 off your first box!
Morning Glamour Silk Pillowcase: I am a face sleeper and it’s destroying my skin. I’ve tried sleeping on my back but I can’t train myself to do it! I debated buying a silk pillow case for a few months, and finally pulled the trigger after Pamela mentioned it. So far I’m loving it as I don’t wake up with lines on my face! My only regret is not purchasing the king-sized option – I’m kind of draping this over my pillow and think it’d work better if I had the proper size. I might go full diva and order a king-size and keep the standard for travel.
Tarte sale: Tarte is running a 30% off sale on their site. They’re quickly becoming one of my favorite brands and I’m ready to stock up! Their highly-reviewed concealer is still available, as well as their spectacular new Pro Glow palette, which I give all the hand praise emojis. Seriously, I like it better than the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit! Get over there quick!
How was your week? Any weekend plans? Enjoy your Friday!
