It's almost Christmas time!!  You're done shopping, the presents are wrapped, the food is all planned out, but find you forgot one person on your list!!  It happens to us all, but to keep yourself from giving them a belated holiday gift, here's a cute, fun idea that that is inexpensive, cute and that anyone will love.

These are little hot chocolates in a bag.  (I don't have a creative name for them..haha).  All you need is to run to the grocery store for a few items and you're set!  You can pair this with a gift card, maybe some banana bread or something like that.  Or they are cute enough to give all by themselves!  :)

What You'll Need:
-1 can of hot chocolate (3 Tbs. in each bag)
-mini chocolate chips
-mini marshmallows
-some sort of red candy (I used cinnamon gummy bears that were $1/bag at target!)
-pretzel bags or cone-shaped bags (I found mine at Michaels)

Happy Holidays!!

Instead of always wearing dark nail colors during the holidays...I decided to switch it up.  I found the absoloute most gorgeous shade for winter.  


(Nevermind my index finger broke yesterday..booo)

Its a creamy/milky white color.  I was looking for a color that wasn't stark white.  I didn't want my nails to look like I got bored with a bottle of whiteout.  ;)

The thing with most neutral/light Essie takes a lot of coats to get it to full opacity.  This is 3 coats and it's still at about 80%.  Which is fine, because I like the smooth, milky effect it gives.

I absoloutly love this color and I'm planning on wearing it to a Christmas party next week with nude shoes, black/blue lace dress and I'm thinking gold toe nails!  

Happy Holidays to each of you! :)

I love ordering products from Eyes Lips Face for a few reasons...

1. They are inexpensive and they actually work!!  :)

2. They take awhile to ship out to California so by the time they get here, I forgot what I ordered and its like opening a christmas present!!

3. They always have crazy good deals on their already low, low prices.  I got this stuff from Black Friday where it was BOGO 50% off and free shipping if you spent over $15!  Awesome..  

All this was only $20-ish plus free shipping!
