Holiday party outfit c/o Chico’s: red dangle earrings / black turtleneck / gold and black velvet ruana / gold and red statement necklace / velvet pants /

The holiday season is in full swing, and I know what I want from Santa! I also happen to know what my friends will want from him too 😉 Shopping for my friends is always fun. They are bold, athletic yet chic, adventurous, kind, and downright fabulous! I know I can find the perfect gifts for them at Chico’s!

Let’s face it, holiday shopping includes a ton of shopping for both ourselves and others. It’s hard to resist snapping up beautiful items we may need when we see them alongside something we know a friend or family member would love to receive. So, this holiday season, and every holiday season, I will shop for myself while I shop for gifts!

Holidays gifts for you and me

gifts ideas for her holiday gifts for myself

Holiday gifts for her from left: gold and black scarf (under $50!) / golden travel case (under $50!) / snowflake brooch (under $50!) / red reversible ruana (under $100!) /

I’m loving these travel cases for the holiday 2019 season. I have a few trips planned next year, and these cases would be ideal for keeping my suitcase organized. My friends love to travel too which means this travel case would be perfect for them; hopefully my BFF’s aren’t reading this-or they will guess what I am placing under the tree for them!

Jewelry is always a fabulous stand-by when it comes to gift-giving, and Chico’s has some amazing pieces to give this season. I am swooning over this snowflake brooch. It adds sparkle during the dreary winter season, and it’s also an easy way to spice up a coat or jacket. Love it!

One of my favorite items to give is a sweater. This ruana is really fun for the holiday season since it seems like a sweater, yet offers a sophisticated silhouette which can be dressed up or down. It also comes in a ton of colors; and it’s reversible! It will be the perfect gift.

Scarves are another stand-by gift. Everyone loves to receive a scarf! Many of us love to give ourselves scarves too! Haha one for me, one for you! I am obsessed with this sparkling and chic scarf from Chico’s. It will be under the tree for someone in family. Shhhh!! Don’t tell her! 😉

In addition to gifts, ‘tis the season for parties! This season I am attending events held inside homes. I love these velvet pants, and this chic velvet ruana for holiday house parties. They are really comfortable, yet chic and festive. Love that! The entire look is Chico’s, but I’m sure you guessed that already 😉

What gifts do you plan to give this holiday season? What are you hoping to find underneath the tree for yourself?

Have a fabulous holiday season!

XOXO

Chanel Holiday 2019 nail polish review

Chanel nail polish Holidays 2019

Chanel holiday 2019 nail polish collection from left: Chanel Richness nail polish / Chanel Deepness nail polish /

Chanel has gone dark for the holiday 2019 season! For the holidays 2019 season, Chanel has given us a deep, dark, almost vampy red hue named Chanel Richness. In addition to a dark holiday red, Chanel has continued on the black nail polish trend they embarked on for the autumn season, and they have given us Chanel Deepness nail polish.

Normally the holiday season gives us a cheery red hue, some sparkle, and party-ready colors. Not for the 2019 holiday season. Chanel has gone dark, and given us colors we need to add a sparkle top coat in order to turn into a party-ready hues. I highly recommend adding a sparkle top coat over these two colors, as we head into the holiday party season!

Without further ado, here are the two, dark hues Chanel has offered up for the holidays:

Black is the new black, and it needs to be on your nails. This is the current nail color trend of the moment, and Chanel has given us a version of black for the holiday season. Chanel Deepness nail polish is a dark, mysterious hue which looks fabulous in two coats of color, with one base coat and one top coat. This is a great, non-streaky formula which is long lasting, and 5-free. Love that!

Looking for a traditional red hue for the holiday season? Chanel has gone dark with their annual holiday red. Chanel Richness is a very dark red polish which was very well formulated. It goes on smoothly in two coats without streaking. I recommend using a base coat and a top coat to make it last over a week. Also love that this formula is 5-free! Yay!
