My Ready for the Holiday Party Essentials + Win The Body Shop Advent Calendar!

Before you scroll down and realize it, the giveaway for the advent calendar is open to Canada only. I do giveaways that are open internationally from time-to-time, so keep your eyes open for more of those on here and my social media! I do still share my ready for holiday party essentials below and I hope you'll stick around to see those and maybe share with me one or two of your own glam essentials for holiday parties in the comments!

More on the giveaway at the end of the post. But first, let's talk about a few of the things that I rely on to get myself ready for the influx of holiday parties and gatherings!

I tried to think of my essentials from skincare and onward. I always like to have a pamper session the night before a party to get in the zone. Do a proper skincare routine, paint the nails, give myself a pep talk about group survival because I am hugely an introvert...
  • Face mask - Nothing beats a face mask while in a bubble bath on a cold night.
  • Moisturizing shower cream - Because my dry skin comes out with a vengeance and I want my skin glowing like all of the lights.
  • Lip butter - To get my lips ready for whatever festive lip color I go with.
  • Hand and nail cream - To get prepped for that holiday manicure.
  • Red nail polish - Often my go-to nail color for the holidays.
  • Perfume - I like something that can last the night, but not overwhelm everyone in the room.
  • Shimmery eyeshadow - Shimmer. Glitter. Repeat.
You'll notice some of the products I featured above are from The Body Shop. I do not want to spoil what is inside the 24 Days of Beauty calendar, but I do know that you might find some variations of the products and/or scents that I featured above. Their holiday scents are always amazing, so you can guarantee some of those will be in there. I can't wait to see what is behind each door. If you want to win a The Body Shop Advent Calendar like mine, just follow my rules below and the steps on Rafflecopter!

And if you don't win, The Body Shop offers this version and three others at different price ranges. And this year, they have a Countdown to New Year one! As someone from the southern US, I didn't even know about or get my first advent calendar until I came to Canada so they still feel like a new tradition to me. As the weeks go, I'll be sharing the round-up of products as I usually do when I have a beauty calendar.

Aside from the daily beauty or skincare treat, each day also comes with a challenge to play along and use #PlayforPeace and #YuleBePrepared. The best part is that it is for a charity called International Alert that helps kids across the globe to be able to play!
