Christmas Shopping

I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas!
This past week I went to get my hair cut and now it feels so much shorter even though it’s still relatively long. We took off approximately three inches, so it’s a pretty big change for me even if it’s not that noticeable to others. My stylist was really sweet and also took the time to curl my hair after she was done cutting it. It’s things like that which cause me to love going to get my hair done!
After my appointment, my mom and I went to pick up the last of our Christmas gifts for friends and family. We went to Vera Bradley, Macy’s, Starbucks, and a few other stops.
Shorter and curly hair!

A Starbucks stop was in order, of course! I got one of my favorite holiday drinks, a gingerbread latte with skim milk and no whipped cream, yummy!

When we went to Macy’s I walked by Benefit, which is one of my all-time favorite makeup brands. The woman who was working showed me this cool new concept they’re doing so that you can test one of their perfumes in a cute and fun way. I absolutely loved it and wanted to share it with all of you as well. They now have these ribbon bracelets that they’ll spray one of their perfumes onto so you can try the scent without getting it totally stuck to you, you can also wear it more than one day this way. I tried the newest of their Crescent Row perfumes, Ring My Bella.
I went to the Benefit site and looked up the notes in Ring My Bella:
top notes – pink rose petals, soft lilly, summer daisy
middle notes – Egyptian jasmine, creamy peony
bottom notes – white patchouli, vanilla tincture, white musk

  • I get so nervous cutting my hair–I used to ask the hairdresser to "cut it long, please." But I love your hair! It's super cute and it definitely suits you. I actually love your whole outfit–I really want a Burberry scarf, so I'm super jealous of your vintage one 🙂
