Survival Kit: Holidays

We love the holidays. The twinkly lights, cheerful spirit, and gift giving make us all warm and tingly inside. But the pressure from a packed schedule, stretched gift budget, and Christmas music playing on repeat can also turn even the most jolly into the Grinch. Never fear, we have some foolproof ideas for getting through the holidays with your sanity intact.

The Office Party

Even if you love your coworkers (and we do!), that doesn’t mean you can go crazy. You still have to see them at work the next day! These essentials will keep you polished.

Thymes Body Lotion in Kimono Rose: Even though you see these folks more than your own family, you still want to look and smell nice. This rich lotion leaves skin soft and has floral notes of magnolia, peony, and rose extracts.
Showstoppers Fashion Tape: Keep all your bits and pieces under wraps with this fashion tape. You’ll look cute and avoid any embarrassment at the water cooler tomorrow.
EBOOST Orange Natural Energy Booster: Even if you don’t overdo it, chances are you’ll be tired at work the next day. Bounce back with these natural boosters.

The Black Tie Affair

If you’re lucky enough to be invited to a black tie affair, you’ll want to enjoy the evening, not worry about whether or not your hair or makeup is staying in place.

Jouer Mini Glisten Lip Gloss: Small enough to fit in the tiniest of clutches and moisturizing enough to keep lips in shape all night long.
Tatcha Aburatorigami Blotting Papers: The gold standard of blotting papers — literally, these are made with 24K gold leaf — Tatcha’s sheets are the chicest way to dab away oil.
Blow Out Hairspray: Mist over updo before you leave for the night and your hair will be up all night.

The New Year’s Eve Bash

New Year’s Eve is arguably the most hyped night of the entire year. Avoid a letdown with products that make you feel great in any situation.

LaROCCA Champagne and Shimmer Supreme Crème: It’s the one night that sparkly skin isn’t just acceptable; it’s practically a requirement. This crème is moisturizing and subtle.
Deborah Lippmann Get This Party Started Set: Did we mention sparkles were appropriate? Yes? A pretty, glittery manicure is a must.
L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil: Ring in the new year with shiny, frizz-free hair with a few drops of this rich hair oil.
