Girls Night In: Holiday Edition

Holiday Girls Night In Ideas with Olay Face Masks

I’m such a homebody at heart so it’s not uncommon (especially during the holidays) to find me snuggled up on the couch in my cozies, with a face mask on, sipping mama’s homemade hot chocolate (recipe here) and watching a good chick flick. I recently had the opportunity to try out Olay’s new launch of their clay stick face masks and I am so excited to share my favs. I like to use face masks just like the next girl, but I never know which ones to use or what the difference is between all of them. With so many on the market, it can be a little overwhelming am I right?!

I’ve also heard of the term “multi-masking” but felt a little too out of my element to give it a try it until recently. If you don’t know what “multi-masking” is, it is just what it sounds like: using multiple face masks at one time. The purpose of multi-masking is to target different facial needs since most of us don’t have the same type of skin or problem areas all over our face. While this Instagram famous beauty trend seems like playing Picasso on your face, it really is quite genius!

If you think about it, your T zone is usually oiliest which tends to cause clogged pores and breakouts. Because of this you want a mask that will target those stressed out areas, detox and reduce those pores, and leave your skin feeling nice and refreshed. Insert my favorite Olay Pore Detox clay stick Mask here! While I primarily use it on my forehead, I will also apply it on my nose and chin depending on how clogged my pores are in those areas. Personally, I saw the most noticeable results with this face mask being that I have oily, acne-prone skin and this mask left my skin feeling cleaner and softer than ever!

Moving onto the other areas of your face, your cheeks are normally going to be the dryer part of your face. They need hydration. Insert the Olay Glow Boost clay stick Mask here! Not only does this mask hydrate your skin, it leaves it with a natural looking glow. It brings new skin cells to life with micro-exfoliating white charcoal. This mask is very mild and is a good one to use all over on days that your skin feels a little dull.

Lastly, our skin always have those problem areas that just need a little extra TLC some days. Insert the Olay Fresh Reset clay stick Mask here! This mask is great just what it sounds like- a skin refresh. It is infused with anti-oxidant minerals to give your skin the extra loving that it needs. Lately my skin has been having horrible hormonal acne, so I will trade off between this mask and the Pore Detox.

The best part about these masks is that they are inexpensive and can be found at your local Walmart. With a low-price tag like that, you might as well try out all three. Why wear one mask when you could wear three at one time?! Another pus is that they are mess free You can apply the stick right onto your face without having to dirty your hands. This is actually better for your face as you are not getting dirt and bacteria from your hands onto your face.

If you do decide to have a girls night in complete with an Olay Stick mask or three, don’t forget that Hallmark Channel is already playing Christmas movies (eek!) and that mama’s homemade hot chocolate is just 4 ingredients. Talk about the perfect girls night in:)

*Thank you Olay for sponsoring this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.*

Friendsgiving: What to Wear, Tablescape Decor & Hostess Gifts

Friendsgiving Ideas

Britt // Lauren // Jess // Dede

Over the past couple of years Friendsgiving has become a major celebration. And let me just say it is 100% a celebration that I can get behind, especially when good food, goof friends and good wine come together! While Thanksgiving is usually reserved for the traditional family and close friends, Friendsgiving is celebrated before or after with friends you wouldn’t normally be able to spend Thanksgiving Day with. Long story short it’s just an excuse to stuff your face surrounded by the best company and I love every bit of it.

If you are wanting to try out any new recipes, get your holiday decor out early or just host a fun event for your friends, Friendsgiving is a great option! Since the host is already offering up their home, it is always nice to have a potluck dinner. This is always my favorite because I get to try everyone’s favorite, family traditional meals. My family is pretty much known for our corn casserole contributions every year, so that is always what I bring. It helps that it’s the easiest dish to make and is always a real crowd pleaser.

My girls and I had our first Friendsgiving of the season yesterday and with so many of you attending one yourselves, I wanted to share all of the details from what to wear, some decor inspiration and little things you can bring for the hostess to say thank you! Personally, when any type of buffet is involved you can find me in stretchy pants and an oversized sweater because your girl likes second… and thirds but even if you are anti leggings, I think you will find several cute outfit ideas below for Friendsgiving or Turkey Day!

You usually can’t go wrong contributing beer or a bottle of wine, but if you do want to bring your host a little something extra, here are some of my go to gift ideas!

  • Candle- Is there really any girl that doesn’t want to burn the Capri Blue candle 24/7? I have yet to meet one so this gift is always much appreciated.
  • Gifts for the home- Chances are whoever is hosting likes to entertain often, give them something that will come in handy for all of those parties!
  • Holiday Decor- Someone who likes to entertain often will never say no to more decor!
  • Game- If your group is the gaming type, bring something that will really get the party going like a fun board game.
