Holiday Moments That Make Life Beautiful (Giveaway)

I'm getting in gear for the upcoming holidays, and I cannot wait!! But the holidays can get kind of stressful, right? I like to think of the holiday moments that make life beautiful instead.

Making Memories

I live about 5 hours away from my family, which isn't too far, but I don't get to see them as often as I'd like. When the holidays come around, I insist on creating lots of memories with them, especially with my nieces and nephews. Whether we are playing games, baking some holiday goodies, or patiently watching them show me their latest tricks, I treasure them.


Red Lips

It just isn't the holidays for me without my signature red lips. It's like instant glamour for me. It feels like the icing on the cake to a holiday look. When I'm around my family, I'm usually very casual--hair in a bun, sweatpants, and no makeup. But when the holidays come around, I want to really dress up and feel festive.




 Holiday Nails

Another holiday moment is when I do my nails--I like to add a little sparkle. Some think nail art is tacky, but it seems to get a pass during the holidays. A gold glitter tree on an accent nail makes for a beautiful touch. And how fun and cute are these?


Holiday Hair

Earlier I mentioned my love for those holiday memories with family--did you know I have two sisters? I do. And once we all became adults, we became busy. It is really rare for me to be able to spend time as just the three of us without little ones around and responsibilities. But when we do around the holidays--it is always Beauty Shop time. We do each other's hair. It's so fun to see what we come up with for hairstyles and to be pampered too.

But having good hair begins with taking care of it. Take a look into my shower or my sisters’ shower, and you'll see Garnier® Whole Blends. Garnier has 6 formulas with shampoo, conditioner, and treatments, so there's something for everyone. They're paraben-free and are made of recyclable PET plastic with 30% Post-Consumer Recycled waste. I wouldn't let my family use just anything, and I can feel good about the choice of Garnier® Whole Blends for them. I've found my blend: COLOR CARE with cranberry and Argan Oil Extracts. I color my roots, and this system protects color and reveals radiance. In addition to the shampoo and conditioner, there's a Color Care Mask that I adore.

And those are just a few holiday moments that make life beautiful for me. I'd love to hear yours.

  42. I really love playing with glittery makeup during the holidays. I feel like it's the one time of the year that I can really go nutty with it and no one judges, because it's so festive!

    Isn't family time at the holidays priceless? My family just moved back to my town so I will get to have a family holiday for the first time in almost a decade (!!!!!) so I CAN'T WAIT to go nuts with decorating, cooking, etc. this year. I am so excited to be super festive this year and do all the holiday things I can!!

  45. I'm with you on a nice red lip for the holidays. I already have mine picked out. :)

    Me and the family usually spend the holidays at home. Just the 3 of us. We spend the day lounging, feasting, and opening gifts. But this year it looks like I'll be visiting my family back home on the East Coast. I haven't seen my sister and nieces in over 7 years! I'm not sure what we will do, but whatever it is it'll be fun.

  48. This is a great giveaway! And your pictures are very beautiful! So good that you can meet your family 5 hours far from you - it's quite a ride, but worth it! I used to think that nail art was tacky, but this year I am totally in love with it and using it a lot! I like Garnier products very much, by the way!
