Thanksgiving is almost here! I’m so excited I almost don’t know what to do with myself, especially since my family dinner is usually along the lines of Christmas Vacation meets August Osage County. It gets weird – but it’s supposed to right? Anyway, I often end up wearing some form of glorified loungewear to stuff my face, but this year I have a plan. Luckily, so many designers have blessed us with acceptable sweatpants and comfy sweaters this year that it’s so easy to look presentable while still basically wearing your pjs. Let the food coma begin.
one – a cute sweater with a slogan that’s sure to hide that food baby. two – wear these on the tip of your nose for across-the-table judgment. three – the best just fancy enough joggers. four- a satchel that’s large enough for those leftovers. five – a no-brainer, in case you have to make a run for it.
I’m a bit of a hand cream hoarder – I have two or three on the go at any given time, and I love to test new ones as often as I can. And like everyone else, my skin becomes a bit reptilian in the colder months. I don’t like to play favorites, but I had to share my most loved (and used) with you.
The Josie Maran Creamy Argan Oil is exactly as it sounds – it is a wonderfully hydrating treat for your skin. I use it not only on my hands, but on dry patches on my face, my lips, and on the ends of my hair. This is my second tube, and I’m obsessed.
The Grown Alchemist hand cream is one that I actually forgot I had. I was shopping my drawer stash (as you do), and found this little guy shivering in a dark corner waiting to be used. The vanilla orange scent is downright addictive, and it really does absorb into the skin and keep it moisturized for hours.
With talk of the first (and hopefully last) polar vortex on the way, it can only mean one thing – the start of gift guide season. I decided to get an early-ish start this year, starting with a few ideas for the gentlewomen in your life.
