When I was a kid, I was a really picky eater, and there was virtually nothing I hated more than a bowl of tomato soup. The sound of a hand-cranked can opener inching around the rim of a Campbell’s can was my version of nails on a chalkboard. And although I shed most of my weird food proclivities as I aged, I never got fully on board with tomato soup—until about a year ago.
As of Monday, I finished my Christmas shopping, but I always like to have a few extra pretty or delicious things on hand to bring with me when I’m running out the door to the holiday parties that pepper the next week of my calendar. If these small hostess gifts end up being both pretty and delicious—well, that’s even better.
We’re officially well into the month of December now, and that means the countdown to Christmas is at a mere 14 days away. Normally by this time, I’ve already trimmed my tree, finished my shopping and sent my packages on their merry way, but not this year. I don’t know what it is about 2017 (or maybe I do), but this time of year has been unusually busy and stressful.
Ever since I swore off clothes shopping for the year, I’ve gotten a bit more into beauty products (I had to funnel all that energy somewhere). So today, I’m giving you a peek inside my medicine cabinet so you can stock up on a few of my tried-and-true favorite products during the Sephora Beauty Insider Event.
