Can you believe Thanksgiving is just a week away? I don’t know where time goes! I’ve been busy working on holiday gift guides, shooting content and preparing for Sydne Summer product launches, one which drop today! The holidays are always the busiest time of year. And I’ll admit, I have felt a little worn down. I’ve been trying my best to prioritize self care amidst the insanity. It’s a work in progress but it’s so important. Reading at night definitely helps, so I included a new book I loved below, as well as a few more recent faves…
5 THINGS I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW
#1 holiday masks
I’m so excited to bring you new face masks for the holiday season! I went through thousands of rolls of upcylced fabric and finally decided on three colors for the season: a radiant red with subtle gold sparkle, a soothing forest green, and gold shimmer on black that is so perfect to dress up any look for the season.
I’ve been using the new Mary Kay TimeWise Replenishing Serum C+E daily and my skin has been feeling so much brighter! The serum combines two super antioxidants that not only help protect against premature skin aging, but also leave your skin firmer and brighter. I apply it after I wash my face and before putting on my face oil and sunscreen in the morning.
Meet my new dog park shoes! I’ve been slipping on these comfy slides every morning and night when I take the dogs out. They feel like slippers but have a sturdy small platform on bottom. So I don’t have to worry about my pants touching the ground if I’m wearing a longer lounge pant.
I’ve found myself drawn to books about strong women more than ever recently. The Boys Club is a fascinating look into corporate culture around the predominantly male world of Mergers and Acquisitions. The main character is a smart, driven female, who aims to find a balance between relationships and success. But as she grows in her career, she has to face challenges in a #metoo climate. After finishing the book, it encouraged me to take a good look at my own life, examining the true meaning of success.
I love this faux fur blanket so much that I just ordered it in another color! I originally got the blush one for my living room. And now I have the white one for my bedroom. It’s the softest blanket ever! It also looks super luxe draped on any piece of furniture.
