HOLIDAY SEASON PARTY LOOKS

I’ll admit, I don’t usually have many parties to attend during the Christmas season, and that probably has to do with my environment. I feel like I haven’t made it to adulthood yet, and adults are the ones who have the parties, right? While I try to navigate my “post-grad, pre-grown-up” life I will fake it until I make it - because that’s what I do best. Even though my friends and I live far from each other we found the perfect time to have a holiday party. Classy Christmas, meaning you have to dress up. I, of course, went too fancy, but as Oscar Wilde said, “you can never be overdressed or overeducated.” And since I would classify my education level as ‘under-qualified’ I should at least look good. Christmas doesn’t know how extra I can be.

I’ve put together some ideas for outfits and accessories that I think are perfect for the holidays. If your goal is to look like you’re going to a 1920’s gala then I got you covered. I am the queen of good outfit intentions but terrible at reading the room.

 
 
 

I hope you enjoy your holidays! I am ready to tackle the new year and excited about what’s to come.

ALL THE PRODUCTS I USE ON MY SKIN

Skincare is so so important, not just for your face, but for your whole body as well. I feel like I’m always on the hunt for the best possible products for my skin. It’s always a challenge, isn’t it? For a while I was convinced that my skin was allergic to aloe vera, but now I have a new moisturizer that is healing my skin with aloe in it. (HUH?!) As much as I don’t understand my skin, every time I find something that works I just want to take care of it even more.

Taking care of yourself and your skin only has benefits! Here is a list of products I use on my skin, and as always, everything I use is cruelty free.
