All I Want For Christmas...

Whew! I have finally realized just why the holidays seem to revolve around food. It's because we need all those extra calories to sustain us during the holiday shopping frenzy! Although Girly keeps trying to convince me that a nice bowl of homemade vegetable soup and an apple will give me the energy to try on and purchase a new pair of leather boots, a flirty little cocktail dress, a pair of designer jeans and most likely a great handbag as well. Although I beg to differ. In my vast experience as a consumer (of yummy confections) I have found that devouring a hot pretzel and an icy Diet Pepsi will easily give me the stamina to get those boots AND a pair of dressy pumps for work, the gorgeous cocktail dress as well as a new LBD for the office party and a snuggly new cashmere sweater as well. At which time it only makes sense to sit down with a Cinnabon and a hot cocoa (for fashion and budget recon as much as for sustenance of course) before moving right on to the designer jeans and hobo bag. And I have found that the combination of cinnamon and chocolate works in tandem to give me that little added boost to find and acquire a lovely new winter coat, a fabulous weekend bag, and a gorgeous necklace and bracelet combo. I even have enough energy left to take the time to search out a new signature fragrance! So I think I'll stick to my methods of pre-shopping marathon carbo loading thank-you-very-much!

Which is why I have a bowl of Chex Mix, a plate of gingerbread cookies, a mug of hot spiced cider and a bag of Hershey Peppermint Kisses arranged artfully on my desk as I double-check my list of the perfect holiday gifts for my friends and family.

Great Gifts for Her:

Sumo Lounge Bean Bag Chairs
  • Cashmere sweater. While nothing says I love you like a diamond, nothing says I love you enough to want you warm and stylish like a gorgeous cashmere sweater. So many gorgeous styles in every price range, your sure to find the perfect sweater for your mom, your sister or your best friend.
  • Personalized necklace. I love this idea because it lets the recipient know that you were thinking specifically of her when you got it! Personalize it with her favorite hobby or interest, or go with the classic initials.
  • Snuggly soft blanket. The ultimate in comfort and relaxation, there is nothing like curling up on the sofa with a good book and a toasty warm blankie on a cold winter's day. I snapped up a couple of these fabulously soft and snuggly cozy chic blankets at Target!
  • Lovely leather bag. It is my firm belief that each and every holiday should be celebrated with a new handbag. What better way to chronicle your stylish life? This season my bag of choice is this gorgeous vintage leather traveler tote.
  • The perfect toiletry bag. I love this bag because it has individual zip compartments to protect your clothes and suitcase from spills. It also zips open to lay flat if your suitcase is stuffed to the hilt! This is a great gift for the woman who travels on business or for pleasure.

Great Gifts for Him:

  • Cashmere Sweater. Wait, where have I heard that before? Oh well, what's good for the gander is good for the goose (or something like that). Pamper your guy with a luxuriously soft sweater this holiday season.
  • Google Chromecast. This device allows you to stream video from your tablet, laptop, or smartphone on to your TV. In order to Function it connects to the same Wi-Fi network that your portable device is using.
  • Nest Learning Thermostat. (I will forever be the favorite with my dad for this gift!) Do you actually know how to program a thermostat? I didn't think so. Well, the Nest Learning Thermostat keeps track of your habits, learns, and then eventually reacts to how you would during the day. It syncs to your Wi-Fi so you can control it from your portable device. That way you easily adjust it form any room in your house.
  • Real Man Jeans. Ladies, I have to admit it — there is nothing like a great guy in a pair of classic Levi's jeans. The ultimate in hot hunky style.

Fabulous Stocking Stuffers:

  • Lipsurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint from tarte. Introducing energy—the newest shade addition to the award-winning and best-selling franchise of LipSurgence™ lip tints. This skintuitive™ formula responds to your skin’s natural pH and energy, giving you a personalized tint that is truly your own younique shade of pink
  • Gotta love a great piece of arm candy! The epic bracelet from Twisted-silver. Funky style with Old World charm that will be the envy of all your fashionista friends.
  • Murad Soothing Skin & Lip Care . This lip treatment is infused with Vitamin E, Lanolin and Beta Hydroxy Acids to revitalize and protect dry, dehydrated lips by improving texture to restore suppleness.
  • Exquisite silk scarf. Nothing adds that final touch of style to an ensemble like a gorgeous silk scarf!
  • Bergamot & Jasmine Candle — Inspiring scented candle with a citrus top note of Bergamot and floral bouquet of Jasmine. The perfect scent to suffuse your home with a comforting ambiance.

Ryka — A Gift for the Fitness Guru

Ryka - Excel (African Violet/Deep Purple/Lime Shock) - Footwear 

Women require more than just a downsized version of a men’s athletic shoe, and Ryka understands that, which is why everything they create is designed by women.

I recently received a pair of Ryka Excel running shoes and I have been putting them through the paces the past few weeks. They are so incredibly light-weight that it hardly even feels like I am wearing shoes, yet they are very durable, providing the much needed support and traction that I love for trail running.

Ryka is the only footwear company managed, designed, and solely dedicated to creating performance women’s athletic shoes.

Renew the Body and Mind with

Le Couvent des Minimes Beneficial Oils

Two indulgent new ways to get the restorative benefits of botanical oils while enjoying the beloved fragrances of Le Couvent des Minimes. The Eau Aimable Beneficial Care Oil and Eau des Missions Beneficial Massage Oil heal the skin and rejuvenate mind.

Botanical oils have long been used in a myriad of healing treatments for the body and hair as well as for mental well-being. Remembering these time-honored uses, Le Couvent des Minimes combines five traditionally used curative oils with their popular Eau Aimable and Eau des Missions scents.

Eau Aimable—or the Botanical Cologne of Love—features Orange Blossom floral water which was distilled and used as healing waters in convents throughout the South of France. To honor this tradition of beauty and wellness, Le Couvent des Minimes Eau Aimable features an emblematic engraving of an angel as a symbol of the love and dedication of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary

Paying tribute to the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary and their selfless charitable work—in Madagascar, Indonesia, the Americas, and worldwide—the Botanical Cologne of the Missions tells the story of these historic journeys. To recall these exotic lands, Le Couvent des Minimes Eau des Missions uses Madagascar inspired Vanilla and exotic plants and features a timeless engraving of a vintage Java landscape.

New Year's Eve Look!

With New Years Eve right around the corner, everyone is gearing up for the fireworks, champagne, and parties.  Figuring out plans for the evening is always chaotic – knowing what products to use to get a glowing look should be easy and fun.  With the products below from Tammy Fender and Mally Beauty, you’ll ring in the New Year with a beautiful look.

Feeling like your face says, “I haven’t gotten enough sleep?”  The Tammy Fender Intensive Repair Balm is known as a “miracle crème.”  With ingredients such as chamomile, helichrysum, shea butter, sunflower seed oil, and marshmallow, the balm strengthens weakened capillaries and fades under eye circles, while also reducing tissue pain, redness of the skin, and skin discoloration.
If you’re looking to get a glow this winter skin without a tan, use a bronzer that is 1-2 shades darker than your natural skin tone.  After application, apply a pretty pink blush on the apples of your cheeks to add a pop of color and sweep a bit of highlighter on top of the cheekbones.  For these steps, all you need is the Mally Beauty Shimmer, Shape and Glow.
Finally, a sultry eye and lip are the perfect combination for a night on the town.  Start by applying the Mally Beauty Ultimate Performance Ink Liner and creating a slight wing tip at the corners of your eyes. To find the right rouge lip to match, try Mally Beauty’s Perfect Red Lip that comes in three shades: Cool Red, Neutral Red and Warm Red.
