5 FUN ways to spice up the winter season

All right, friends. Let’s be honest. A part of the fun of the winter season is getting to change up what we wear, the recipes we make, and our makeup and skincare routine. It’s the fun kind of change that gets us out of our rut, right?  

Here are 5 things I can’t live without this winter:

Carhartt Beanie

One of the current trends I am totally digging is this grunge beanie look. I can always appreciate a good hat because it buys me more time before I need to wash my hair again and

this cute feminine beanie checks all the boxes for me: trendy, warm, and functional. 

One Stop Shop Skincare: Cleansing Balm

Want in on one of the secrets to avoiding dry skin this winter? With the colder/dryer days of winter I know if I am not on top of it, my skin can really take a hit. The Beautycounter Cleansing Balm is my go to strategy to avoid dry skin. I use it as a cleanser and an overnight moisture mask. This versatile product is a staple in my bathroom skincare collection.



Save $20 off your first Nuuly with this referral link. Party season is officially here and so is the inevitable question… What am I going to wear? I found Nuuly through a friend (aren’t all good things found through friends?) and it’s the perfect solution to the problem of not having anything to wear to your husband’s holiday work party or a girlfriend gift exchange. Nuuly is a monthly subscription where you can rent 6 items or more of your choice from brands like Anthropologie & Free People. The best part is, if you fall in love with an item you have the option to purchase it… otherwise you just send everything back at the end of the month!! 

False Lashes + Duo Glue

Almost as good as lash extensions but without the cost or commitment. You will see me wearing these to all my holiday festivities— including our family photos! I use this lash style on all my makeup clients (myself included) for the perfect lash shape and drama. This Lash style, the Ardell Demi Wispies are complementary to any eye shape and lid. For smaller eyes you can always cut down the strip to match the length of your top lash line. 

Joanna’s Rosemary Pomegranate Soda

Whether you have these ingredients on hand or need to create a quick Instacart order, Joanna’s Rosemary Pomegranate Soda is a crowd-pleaser that screams holiday cheer. Perfect mocktail as is, or you can take it up a notch and add your favorite vodka.

I mean, sure, none of these are going to change your life, but they WILL add a pep in your step on the cold winter mornings or when you’re looking for a fun drink to bring to a new party.

What’s on your list to bring some warmth and spirit this holiday season?
