December 2021 Favorites

I'm still on 2021, but not for long! Not that I mind elongating the holiday season a little longer. I'm hoping to have a post up on Christmas and my top products of 2021 this week and next and that should round out the last of my 2021 posts. I don't know what 2022 holds, but as of right now, it feels much of the same from last year. We're safe and healthy, so I start this new year being grateful for that. I may have to search harder some days to find something to be grateful for, but there is always something.

My favorites last month were a bit low-key and not my typical holiday fare. No red lipstick, because my mask would cover it. No pretty eyeshadows, because I honestly never left the car and chose curbside delivery. Just the bare minimal to make me feel a little more human, but with as little effort as possible. Not complaining here, because I absolutely do not mind the little effort part. 😂

Blog of the Month for January 2022 - Hey Kerri

In October, Melanie from I'm Not a Beauty Guru was my featured blogger. You can read that post and see other past featured blogs under the "blog of the month" label! Being my blog of the month gets you a designated blog post, a sidebar button, and a mention on my Twitter account. The sidebar button stays up all month long. I don't believe in necessarily making bloggers pay for advertising and I'd much rather show you blogs that I really enjoy reading. And I hope you end up enjoying them too!

This month, I have chosen Kerri from Hey Kerri! No, the above statement is not a typo. In my kinda sorta absence from regular blogging since October, I haven't had a featured blog of the month. I have no plans to scrap this feature though, so we're starting off this new year right! Kerri has been an online friend for a good long time now (where does the time go?!) and I don't want to jinx it, but she's back to blogging this year! 😄 She's always fun to talk to and often has a handful of different topics she posts about. If you check out her blog, feel free to let her know I sent you!

Sephora Black Friday Sale 2021 Haul

I realize this post is late, but it took this long to get everything in my posession. Long story. I took advantage of a few of the Black Friday deals, one I can't show here because it is a Christmas present for my MIL. I remember back when Black Friday and Boxing Day deals were all $12-16, how times have changed. Usually there is a $15-20 off a $50 purchase around the beginning of December, but I haven't seen that make the rounds either. I wonder how good the Boxing Day/after Christmas deals will be.

November 2021 Favorites

It's December! Hellllooooo holidays! I've gotten a big chunk of our holiday shopping out of the way and now I'm focusing more on what to put on the menu. This year, my MIL has agreed to quarantine (as will we) for a few days prior to come celebrate and sleep over on Christmas Eve at our place. As stated in a prior post, we all have different comfort zones. It will be nice to have someone over, but to do it cautiously. I have the place fully decked out already and so begins the menu and activity planning!

For November, I found myself already whipping out more festive looks and outfits. Even if it was just to sit in the car while waiting on my Starbucks. My Christmas bag, face masks, sweaters, etc...they have already been in rotation the last few weeks. If it can be made festive, you better believe I will make it so! Haha!😄

Here are my favorites from November. I'd love to know what you have been using and loving! Have you started migrating to holiday looks and outfits or do you bother?

My 2021 Christmas List

It's that time of year again? Already?! I've contemplated doing gift guides this year after taking last year off from them. I think I'll refrain from doing them again, but I've already seen so many wonderful ones on other blogs. Gift guide posts do really well with traffic, but it just doesn't feel right this year. If it is something you want, I could gather a master list of ideas instead of themed posts/guides or link you to some of my favorite guides I've seen.

I thought I would keep up with the tradition of sharing a few things on my Christmas list and maybe that will also serve as some ideas for you. That's what I love about posts like these! I always find at least one thing that makes me go, "Wow! How did I not know about that?" or something in that nature. 😄 I find the older I get, the harder it is to come up with a Christmas list. I feel like they were novels written in seconds in my childhood. Now, of course I have a running wishlist of sorts, but it always feels different when putting it into gift terms. If that makes any sense...
