The idea that things slow down during holidays is pure myth. I’m not complaining – life is good, but between holiday shopping, work, work travels, friends and family I am spent. I consider it a major success that I finished all of my holiday shopping and have all but a handful of gifts wrapped. Though, it’s followed by the fact that I didn’t send holiday cards this year. I am really kicking myself for not getting my sh*t together. No one is harder on me than me. Next year, I vow to plan ahead and have them ordered by November 1.
But, let’s focus on the positive. All of my holiday shopping is done! One of my favorite finds (that I may have self-gifted already…oops) is La Bella Figura Holiday Essential Mini Set. The LBF ladies were at Dose Market a couple Sundays ago and I scooped this right up. The star of the set is the brand spanking new Travel Therapy Mood Booster as well as mini rollerballs of the Daily Elements Defense and Barbary Fig Renewal Serum which are so handy for travel. This mini deal was a fleeting one — not at all surprised to see it sold out already — but the Travel Therapy is sticking around, thankfully. It serves a purpose – calming you the eff down, but is an unbelievably sexy fragrance, too. The Blue Tansy essential oil has the most lovely aroma, especially when paired with Italian Blood Orange and Rose essential oils, and is the source of all that calming power. The oil is said to help release tension, anger and overwhelming feelings. Note: this is also a main ingredient in May Lindstrom’s Blue Cocoon. Perhaps this duo is how I’m surviving December?
