A Cozy Girl's Christmas Guide

I feel like my blog might be becoming a "TikTok made me buy it" advert, but honestly...that app has influenced me so much in these past couple of months so I would be lying if I said most if not all were inspired by creators who have shared some of these products. However, the more and more I hear some of my friends loving and using them I just had to see what the hype was all about—and for any of you last minute Christmas shoppers looking for some ideas for someone who loves to be cozy, indulges themself in self care, well, I've got some inspo for ya! 

Stanley IceFlow Stainless Steel Tumbler- Okay okay, don't tell my mother I bought another emotional support water bottle, but I must say I am just in love with this Stanley cup. I've seen the massive ones with the large grips and the straws but this one with the handle is just so...handy! I also love the sip straw for easy access and I can close it so it doesn't spill when I'm at the gym or honestly taking it anywhere. It has also motivated me to drink more water because it's just so easy to sip and go. I love the variety of different colors but this one is just a classic and goes with anything! 

Olaplex Bond Maintenance Shampoo and Conditioner- My hair game in the winter is not on par with when I normally get it done in the spring/early summer so I was in need of some good repairing shampoo and conditioner. I've heard mixed reviews and advice on not using Olaplex every day, so I have used it sparingly and I have to say I've noticed a difference in shine and texture while using these. 

Sol de Janeiro Jet Set- If you wanna smell like a warm cookie then I recommend any or all of the Sol de Janeiro products. I am obsessed with the body spray and the Bum Bum cream and gel. They just leave me smelling so sweet and I wouldn't want it any other way. 

Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Oil- Lathering up is normally my regime for winter, but less is more! I have been loving this marula oil out of the Drunk Elephant travel size kit and feel like it has been really hydrating my face without being overbearing as the weather changes. I will sometimes layer it with a light moisturizer but other than that this has been my go-to nightly hydrating ritual! 
Pacifica Undereye Vitamin C Spot Serum Mask- I always forget to take care of my undereyes and because it is so dark out in the morning and in the afternoon, my body is responding heavily to the season...so is my mood. So, I've been trying out Vitamin C serums and this mask is perfect for early mornings or even midday when I just need a quick refresh of my face. I also throw these in the fridge! 

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask- My lightweight moisturizer as of late has been this one! After I put on my serums, I will swipe a layer of this mask to absorb and lock in all of the hydration into my face. I love the subtle scent and I feel like my skin just wakes up all glowy and bouncy in the morning. 

OPI Nail Polish in You Don't Know Jacques!- Brown is the color of the season. I've been seeing brown nails to and fro so I just had to pick up a shade and try it for myself! I am loving the warm hue on my nails...I just wish I liked the look of acrylics, but my bank account thanks me for it. 

As we gear up towards the holiday, I've been grounding myself in self-care, relaxing, and soaking up the end of 2022 by giving myself peace. Doing things for myself has made me a better version of myself for others and taking care of me has been a top priority. Give yourself some grace this season and dedicate some time to focus on YOU. Or give the gift of self-love to someone else this holiday!
