Bring Cheer To Your Holidays With Flurry Of Elegance Bouquet

I love flowers. Nature is beautiful. I love houseplants. I’ve only had fresh flowers in our home once when my son was born. They were a beautiful little bouquet. As a new homeowner, I am so excited to add the Teleflora’s Flurry Of Elegance Bouquet to our home. I love personalizing our space and adding beautiful and fun decor to our home. I’ve been making our house feel like home little by little.

I’m addicted to houseplants mainly because it’s a natural and beautiful way to bring nature indoors. My houseplants give me something to care for, watch grow and thrive. My very first houseplant was a miniature african violet. At the time I had no idea how to take care of it but it came in a wick watering container. Since then, I’ve added new houseplants to my collection! I have always loved houseplants.

A Whiter Smile Just In Time For The Holidays
Beauty Brite Disclosure

The holidays are one of my favorite times of the year. Being surrounded by the family you haven’t seen in a while is one of the greatest feelings. One thing I do not enjoy though is all the photos taken at these get-togethers. It always seems like the worst angles of me are taken in these shots and I instantly cringe. This season I am marking off one of my insecurities though and that’s with a whiter smile.

I also like mixing the neutrals and bold colors for a fun holiday look. I highly recommend using the Shaina B. Cosmetics Eye Crease Brush because it blends shadow evenly for a polished look. Finish the look with Shaina B. Miami PRO Lashes for a sexy and dramatic look.

This palette has an equal amount of shimmer and matte shadows, which makes it so versatile! The shadow blends easily and is highly pigmented.

For fall and the Christmas season, I enjoy wearing the Buffalo Plaid and Antler Earrings. Buffalo plaid is so popular now and the added little antler is the perfect compliment. From October through December, these earrings have been a great accessory because they’re so cute! They’re perfect for holiday dinners, bonfires, and Christmas parties.

The Leopard Print and Cross Earrings are one of my year-round favs! These are so sassy and girly, I just adore them! I proudly rock these at church, work, and even date nights!

For a bohemian look, the Maple Leaf Wood Earrings are a great accessory. These definitely attract attention because of the artistic and sophisticated look of them! In addition, the warm rust color is beautiful and pairs well with many of my black shirts and dresses.

In conclusion, I hope you’ve enjoyed some of these fun and unique gift ideas! They are trendy and should please any fashionista on your Christmas gift. Also, these options make a great present for yourself!

Our Top Five Tips for a Happy Holiday Season

Top Five Tips for a Happy Holiday Season
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Thanksgiving is officially here, which can only mean one thing. It’s the most stressful, I mean wonderful, time of year. Between travel, baking, parties, traffic, and shopping, the holidays can start to feel a little less than merry. To help you keep calm and carry on we’re sharing our top tips for a happy holiday season.

Happy Holiday Season Tip 1: Have Fun 

I know this tip seems obvious, but let’s face it, the holidays aren’t always fun. We often get so lost in the shuffle of prepping and consuming (and I’m not talking about all things chocolate and peppermint), that we forget what it’s all about; enjoying new and old traditions with the ones we love.

Happy Holiday Season - Have Fun

So this season, make fun the top task of your to-do list. Think about what are your favorite things to do during the holidays? Is it building a snowman with your kids? Meeting up with friends for some adult hot chocolate? Going to look at the lights and windows displays in your town? Watching every Hallmark holiday movie you can?

Tip 2: Get Organized & Get Planning

This happy holiday season tip is more on the practical side and involves to-do lists, wish lists and calendars. Before you attend one party or shop for one gift, take 20 minutes or so and get organized.

Break out that calendar and write down every party, event, deadline, etc. you and your family will be attending or completing over the next month. Then share it digitally or post it in a prominent place so everyone can see it.

Tip 2: Get Organized & Get Planning

Next, if you are planning a party, hosting family or have to do some holiday baking, make a list of what you need to do and when you need to do it. If others are involved in the process, share your lists and ask for help. Remember, it’s more fun when you do things together.

Finally, create a gift wish list. For instance, a few years ago, my family started a Hanukkah Wish List Google Doc. Each person has their own page where they can fill out their wish list for the season. It might not sound sexy, but I would much rather give someone what they want or need than try to be super creative and fail.

Tip 3: Break out the Yoga Mat
MySolMat Avocado

Now before you think this tip is all about not having that second helping of cookies, think again. Remember, this post is about having a happy holiday season. It’s not about judgment, so indulge how you see fit. Instead, this tip involves reducing holiday stress by breaking out the yoga mat for a workout or for meditation. Moving your body or calming your mind can really help you feel centered and calm during all the hustle of bustle.

I plan on using my new MySolMat, which the brand was kind enough to send me, to make my holiday season zen. What I love most about MySolMat, besides the fun avocado print, is the 6mm of soft cushioned support and the two no-slip textures.

It’s also very lightweight and portable. In fact, it comes with a detachable carry strap for easy storage and travel. Not to mention, the material is eco-friendly, anti-bacterial, and free of Latex, PVC & Chloride, which makes it allergy-free and the perfect gift for yourself or anyone on your list.

MySolMat Strap

My avocado print mat and I will be working through some Pilates moves to help me feel release holiday shopping muscle tension. I’m also planning on using it for some Yoga Nidra practice or meditation to help relieve some holiday stress and quiet my mind.

Tip 4: Make Lazy Sunday a Monday Or Thursday

Now, this tip should apply to the entire year, but it’s especially important during the holidays. If you want to wake up refreshed and ready for 2020, rest and relaxation are a must.

Happy Holiday Season - Tip 4 Lazy Sunday

Stay in those pj’s all day. In fact, I highly recommend doing it at least a couple of times over the next month. Have a family pj day.  Watch movies, listen to music, make some cookies, drink some hot chocolate, and just be.

I also highly recommend sleeping in as much as possible. If you don’t have somewhere to be, then forget about your alarm and wake up when you wake up. Or go to bed early. Sometimes it’s fun to put that to-do list away and climb into bed before that clock strikes 9:00. Read a good book, listen to a holiday podcast, or spend time cuddling with the one you love.

Tip 5: Make a Holiday PlayList

Our final tip has me feeling nostalgic for the days of the mixtape, or more commonly known as the playlist these days. Whatever you choose to call it, let it be all about creating joy and a happy holiday season. You can use iTunes, Spotify or Pandora to make the perfect playlist to accompany all of your holiday adventures.

For me, that always involves listening to “Last Christmas” by Wham and the numerous versions of “The Hanukkah Song” by Adam Sandler on repeat. Of course, I also have to watch the music videos of both songs. I can’t get enough of George Michael frolicking in the snow in all his 80s glory. Or Adam Sandler making the eight crazy nights of Hanukkah so very entertaining.  

We hope these five tips help make your holidays a lot more fun and a lot less stressful. And if you have any other tips please share them with us. We loved to know, how do you have a happy holiday season?

And don’t forget to grab yourself or someone on your holiday list a MySolMat. With ten fun prints to choose from, they’ll make this season and all seasons to come merry and bright.

Another holiday season is upon us, and the race to get it all done has begun. The one place where I personally struggle with, is shopping for all the men in my life. Seriously, how many neck-ties or grilling tools do they really need. Now, if you have it all together, this is where you shine. Yet, if you are anything like the rest of us, you will be aimlessly walking through the aisles of Walmart on Christmas Eve. To help put your mind at ease this holiday season, Gillette razors and their awesome line has you covered.
