The furs are out! Faux fur that is. I bought this coat back in July and have been dying to wear it ever since. It makes for perfect finishing touch on a winter white ensemble. I paired this with a chenille sweater that is truly like wearing a soft throw around you and crisp white jeans. Let the layering begin!
As the weather gets a little cooler, I pull out the faux fur blankets and the velvet pillows, but my number one essential is a gorgeous candle to burn throughout the holidays. My current favorite is this one by LAFCO in Seville Spice/Town Home. The fragrance is described as : Warm and spicy with orange citrus notes: a mix of mandarin, clove, ginger cinnamon and nutmeg. It burns in a hand blown glass jar which is lovely on it's own, and it fills the air with perfect mix of sweet and spicy. What do you like to do to keep cozy during the Holidays?
SHOP the LOOK:
I have been a longtime fan of Caudalie, a french skincare brand that is free of parabens, mineral oils, sodium laurel sulfates and more. Last week, in the Sephora sale, I intended to pick up a replacement of my Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream and instead picked up the Caudalie Vine Body Luxury Set ($34). I am so glad I did because upon using, I have realized I may never be without these items again.
Caudalie Vine Body Butter: Besides the rich, buttery texture that sinks in without residue, is the divine non-offensive scent. It is a clean, soft orange-like scent, that is fresh and uplifting. It is 95 percent natural ingredients made with grape and shea butters. This moisturizer feels like it will work well in dryer, cooler months, but also as an after-sun in warmer weather.
Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream: This has been a favorite for years. I always have a tube next to my bed and in my travel bag. It offers intense hydration, but again, no residue or greasy film. I find it not only keeps my hands soft, it really moisturizes the skin around my nails, making cuticles less dry and flaky.
Caudalie Lip Conditioner: This was a new discovery and I have to admit I am hooked. This is an incredibly moisturizing and smoothing lip balm. It has the same light signature scent and the clean white packaging makes it a perfect product.
If you are new to the Caudalie brand, I highly suggest trying the Vine Luxury Body Set first to get a sampling of their products, you will be hooked!
