My boyfriend and I exchanged Christmas presents last week, we always do it earlier than Christmas. I was so surprised when I opened mine to see the 3 piece HerStyler Hair straightener and curling kit! He knew I had been needing a new flat iron (mine is about 6 years old) and read reviews that this was a good one, it was also on Groupon which made the idea even better.
I had never heard of the brand before I opened it so I didn’t really know how it would be. I went online and read reviews of course, as well as some tutorials, the box didn’t include any instruction. The flat iron works like a charm. I read a lot of complaints that it got to hot but there is a heat setting so you can adjust that. I haven’t used the curler yet but looks fabulous! So flattered that he read reviews and picked this out for me, has anyone else used one before?
I would consider myself a casual dresser, meaning I love to wear a simple pair of skinny jeans and loose top. Chambrays have become a fashion staple in my closet, as well as leapord flats. You can’t go wrong with a simple black skinny jeans and thin belt either.
Since I don’t need to dress up for work, this is an outfit you would see me in on a typical day, during the week or on the weekend. It’s casual and most importantly, comfortable. This IS my go to outfit.
I have to admit – the holidays took a lot out of me. I don’t understand how such a joyous holiday can bring on so much stress. From buying gifts, making sweets and traveling, the stress builds for me. In a way I’m kind of glad when it’s over.
This year I had an amazing Christmas and to reward myself for the year I’m taking myself to my favorite spa in Huntington Beach for a much needed “me day”. I need to recharge my batteries, not to mention a good scrub on my face. Along with holiday stress, the Winter has terrorized my poor flaky skin. It’s time to rejuvenate myself in time for a new year!
Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas! I know I did and I’m sad to see it go. It’s always a bittersweet feeling – the day after Christmas. All the hard work has been done, goods all baked, and your belly still full. The stress is finally over and now it’s time to clean it all up for next year.
One thing is for sure, I will never get sick of watching my family members open their presents. It’s really fun when you completely surprise them with something they never thought they would be getting. Yesterday, my Dad was shocked that we got him AR-15 tactical accessories, I mean you should have seen him. He never thought my Mom and I would pick them out! His face was priceless and he is completely in love with what we got him. Santa also surprised me with an iPhone 5c! I’m absolutely in love with it, what did everyone else get?
Happy Christmas Eve everyone! The day has finally come, Santa comes tonight It’s a tradition on this day for my family and I to bake tons of cookies, and it’s not Christmas until I have red nails, I say. After we get our baking done I will be throwing on some Essie red label.
What is everyone else up to today? Christmas Eve is always a low key day for my family. We hang out at home together all day and then we all go to church in the evening. My Mom usually makes something tasty for dinner, like steaks on the grill, but with temps around -10 degrees, I think we will pass on the grilling outside. Hope everyone has a joyous holiday!
