It’s that time of year again: red lips and dark nail polishes abound. Whether we mean to or not, most of us tend to get stuck in some holiday beauty ruts–but it’s easy to change that! This Christmas and New Year’s, go for a different kind of holiday fun (at least on your nails): soft pale glitters. And we’ve got the perfect ones from SpaRitual: vegan, subtle, and–when combined with SpaRitual’s new Unveil Peel-Off Basecoat–able to be removed more easily than any of your typical polishes! Just one layer of Unveil manages to lift those otherwise-intractable glitters from your nails without any nail polish remover (and without any need to rub your fingers raw).
Have you ever wanted to buy someone perfume for a gift but didn’t know if they would like what you picked out? This past Christmas my boyfriends mother had perfume on her list and I really wanted to get it for her, but I felt like it is more of a personable gift than I could pick out for her. I just knew I would get something that was something I liked and it may be too sweet, too musky, or to fruity for her.

What I Worry About
We all have them. What do you worry about? Don’t be shy. Do you have something that you worry about a lot? I am a worrier. I worry about family, paying the bills and many other things.
I have crocheted for over 20 years. I love it. And I always enjoy sinking my crochet hooks into a new pattern. One of the crochet and knit newsletters I subscribe to is from RedHeart.com. These Fur Top Holiday Stockings were featured in their recent 12 Weeks of Christmas series that was a part of that newsletter. If you’re into crochet or knit projects, their newsletter is a great place for inspiration and I highly recommend signing up to receive it. They don’t send a million emails. And some of those emails I trash if they don’t contain something I’m interested in. The ones I do keep get filed in an email folder so I can go peruse them easier, at my own leisure.
My husband bought me a juicer for my birthday — in March, oops! It’s out of the box and sitting there on the kitchen counter glaring at me every single day. I swear, it speaks to me, accusing me of gross neglect as I’ve only actually used it a few times since I received it.
I am always up for trying new hair products, and love trying the latest products on the market. The label.m Diamond Dust Shampoo and label.m Diamond Dust Conditioner is amazing. My hair sparkles and I feel like I am a little girl in a fairy tale land. This product makes my hair so shiny, soft and full of body that holds for days. I love that the label. m Diamond dust shampoo has a nice rich lather, and you don’t have to use much at all! It’s like a little luxury in a bottle.

I rarely eat baked goods and sweet treats. I try to limit the amount of both foods that I keep in the house. Every once I awhile, I do splurge!
