Great Gifts: Limited Edition Essence of Beauty Holiday Body & Hand Cream.

I love seasonal scents, and the fine fragrance collection essence of beauty has a few limited edition holiday scents that are perfect for the season. Featuring fine ingredients, whimsical packaging and three new luxurious timely scents, these beauties are pretty perfect for the holidays.

Limited Edition Essence of Beauty Holiday Body & Hand Cream

The seasonal scents:

Sugar Frosted Mint - Sparkling scent features top notes of iced peppermint and spearmint with mid notes of warm milk, jasmine and a touch of spice, and base notes of creamy coconut, vanilla bean and warm milk.

Vanilla Wishes - Comforting fragrance features top notes of red plum, spun sugar and pomegranate, mid notes of vanilla bean and sweet toffee, and base notes of sultry amber and coconut milk.

Snowy Apple - Enchanting scent features top note of apple, orange and pineapple mid notes of apple, florals and pear, and base notes of osmanthus, peach and sweet vanilla.

The ultra rich Body & Hand Cream restores moisture to skin as it conditions it with ingredients including revitalizing passion flower seed and rice bran oil, nourishing Vitamin A and E and soothing Aloe Vera. It's super soothing to my skin.

Getting Healthy with Nutrisystem: Week 16.

16 weeks ago, I never thought that I would be sitting here experiencing the success that I have had with Nutrisystem. With the support of everyone there, my amazing friends and family, and the ongoing encouragement from you; I have been very successful.

Weight Loss Success

It wasn't easy at first, but I am on my way to meeting my weight loss goals. I am healthier and feeling great. In just 16 weeks, I have lost 26 pounds! I honestly never thought I would stick with the program as well as I have or have been as successful as I have been.

I would like to lose about 15 more pounds and though I will not be 100% on Nutrisystem, I do have a plan in place. I will continue to exercise and eat smaller portions. I am going to continue to drink a Nutrisystem protein shake daily and I will be stocking up on some of my favorite Nutrisystem bars that I have come to love and depend on. I will update you from time to time on my "Getting Healthy" progress. Wish me luck! I am determined to meet my goal.

Great Gifts: Too Faced All I Want For Christmas.

For their holiday collection, Too Faced partnered with award-winning designer, and one of my reality TV faves, Mary McDonald. Mary is from Bravo TV’s “Million Dollar Decorators” and she decorates with a style that fuses old world elegance with modern sensibility. With Too Faced's glamour and Mary's style, the “Joy to the Girls” holiday collection was created.

One of my favorites from the collection is this set called All I Want For Christmas. This is a makeup set of Too Faced makeup to create your very own holiday look or everyday look. I think it is perfect for traveling as it has everything you need for an easy makeup look. It's also easy to give because the shades are universal and it's got the lips, face and eyes covered. Plus it comes housed in a stylish teal and gold chevron cosmetics bag.
