I'm so happy it's Christmastime, one of my favorite times of the year! However, I still can't wrap my head around the fact that this year is almost over. It just flew by so fast, it feels like Christmas from last year ended yesterday!
I'm very excited about this Christmas, especially once this semester of college ends and I can have three weeks off! I just cannot wait to go home to my family and dogs and to sit on the couch with a warm cup of hot chocolate while listening to classic Christmas tunes and watching the snow fall outside (that is if it will snow by then). December definitely is a favorite month of mine that includes some of my current favorite things in the market, whether it's something on my Christmas list, something I've already purchased, or something I still have my eye on. I hope so far you are having a wonderful December and these ten favorite things of mine might make it to your December favorites list as well!
1.) Starbucks Gingerbread Latte
Anytime of the year is great for Starbucks, but during the holiday season is perfect. I love the red cups, especially this year since they're specially designed by customers. I also love the Christmas drinks menu, and I would have to say my favorite one for this season is the gingerbread latte. At first I was unsure of how much I enjoyed it, but now I think it's such a perfect coffee for the holidays and one of my favorites of December.
Where To Buy: Starbucks
2.) Gingerbread Latte Body Scents
What can I say? I'm so obsessed with gingerbread latte! Bath & Body Works has created a new scent for lotion, body wash, perfumes, and hand soap that smells amazing and feels so good on the body. I currently have the hand soap for my college dorm bathroom, and it is top-notch!
Where To Buy: Bath and Body Works
3.) "Scrappy Little Nobody" by Anna Kendrick
One of the top choices on my Christmas wish list and a book that I am definitely going to read whether I receive it as a gift or not. I just love everything about Anna Kendrick, of course because everything about her is awesome. What makes her even more awesome is that she admits she's an awkward person (which we should all admire) and talks about her journey to get to where she is now, one of the biggest - and most adorable - Hollywood stars! I think it will definitely be a great read with a big boost of confidence, so thank you Anna!
Where To Buy: Barnes & Noble
4.) Espresso Scented Candle
What is a holiday season without candles?! This one may not be a specific holiday scent, but it still smells amazing. Whether you're a coffee lover or not, you will fall in love with the sweet and calming scent of this. It may also be the cheapest thing I have ever purchased from Anthropologie!
Where To Buy: Anthropologie
5.) Rideau Faux-Fur Scarf
Not as cheap as the candle, but it is still absolutely worth it and perfect for the winter season. When I got together with my family for Thanksgiving, I saw one of my cousins wearing a very similar scarf that looked super stylish, which made me want one for myself. Two days later, we went to Anthropologie for some shopping and we found a very similar scarf! I love the infinity design and the soft fur. It looks great with every outfit and is super cozy and warm when battling the bitter outdoor chills.
Where To Buy: Anthropologie
6.) Deer Casetify iPhone 7 Case
Maybe if I weren't so sassy, my spirit animal would be a deer! I really do love this phone case. I recently upgraded my phone, so now I have the 7 which meant I needed a new phone case. Anthropologie was the perfect place to go to because they have so many pretty and stiff cases. I saw the deer one and I could not turn it down, especially since there's a bearded man with his flying reindeer coming soon! I also love this case because I have a rose gold phone and the color combination is just very flattering.
Where To Buy: Anthropologie
7.) Smashbox Lip Stainer
I've already blogged about this lip product in my 10 October Favorites, but I couldn't resist blogging about it again. I'm absolutely in love with it, it's definitely my favorite lipstick at the moment. The dark burgundy color is perfect for winter and it looks beautiful with every skin tone. Plus, it dries up super fast after putting it on and it lasts for pretty much the entire day!
Where to Buy: Smashbox
8.) Butter London Red Nail Polish
You would be silly to think that red nail polish does not go well with the holiday season! I love Butter London nail polish, there are so many fun colors and they each have a great patent texture that dries quickly and does not chip so suddenly. Nothing makes Christmas spirit shine brighter than ruby red nails, like Rudolph's shiny red nose!
Where To Buy: Nordstrom
9.) Avocado & Oatmeal Facial Clay Mask
The bitter weather this season can be a risk factor for glowing and healthy skin, which gives us another excuse to use face masks! This is actually the first face mask product I have ever used, and I am loving it very much. I think my face has become more radiant and softer after using it. Plus, I love both avocados and oatmeal! It's important to spread the clay all over your face, and maybe even your neck if you have time. It dries up and tightens really fast, so it's best to leave it on for 10-20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water afterwards and get a radiant result.
Where To Buy: Ulta
10.) F**k Off, I'm Sleeping Eye Mask
I apologize for the inappropriate language, but I'm honestly kind of in love with this eye mask. It pretty much sums up how I feel when I'm trying to get some beauty sleep.
Where To Buy: Nasty Gal
