One of my favorite months has drawn to a close. Who doesn’t love the holidays?! I fell hard for a LOT of things this December but I promise to keep it as brief as possible.
The holidays usually ensue a good amount of craziness. When that happens, it is so easy to only care about being comfortable while running around. That doesn’t mean you can’t be comfortable AND cute! Trendy athleisure pieces have been saving my butt lately. Lululemon, Zella and Lucy have taken over my wardrobe this month. Fast fashion retailers are taking note as well and creating athletic lines for a lower price point. With up to date stylized details I look more girl on the town than girl just leaving the gym. lovely and laid back? Yes please. Leggings and slip on sneakers are always a chic option. You also can’t go wrong in a bright zip up (just don’t forget the finger hole sleeves). You do not need to look like a mess to get functionality out of your outfit.
Covergirl “Ready, Set Gorgeous” Foundation
I probably shouldn’t be writing about this foundation because I unfortunately think it is getting discontinued. However, this item is too good not to talk about. It is the main product I have been wearing this month. This foundation has no added frills and just does exactly what it should. It gives the skin a satin finish with medium coverage that lasts all day. This is a great choice for makeup that needs to go from a day look to a night out. It dries down completely and doesn’t necessarily need to be set with powder, allowing you to apply your makeup even faster. I have a problem with foundation breaking up on my skin throughout the day but not with this one! When my makeup has to look good and I want to take the guesswork out of my routine, this is what I grab for. Currently this product is still sold on Covegirl.com and at Walmart. If you get the chance to snag this before it is gone (hopefully on sale), do it quick!
Packing can be a stressful process especially when going home for the holidays. You want to look your best and wear your favorite pieces. This may mean stuffing extra outfits in your suitcase at the last-minute if you constantly overpack like me. This time around, I really tried to plan out outfits before I left for my trip. This act ended up saving me a ton of room and time. There was a lot of bonus space in my suitcase for anything purchased during my vacation. Win win situation! I am all about multiple options for my day-to-day routine but having my outfits already picked ahead of time was a refreshing break. Anything that gets me out the door quicker on a vacation is a total plus in my book.
I hope your holiday season was as good as mine. What were the products you found delightful this December? Tell me down in the comment section, I would love to know!
