Celebrate InStyle

Fall Lipstick Colors

We’re barely a few days into November, but I swear, holiday cheer is already in the air.  Never mind the fact that I literally witnessed someone putting up Christmas decorations the morning after Halloween.  It’s always on to the next, but it’s not like I can blame them.  There’s really no other season like the holiday season.

I also got jumpstart on the holidays at last week’s #CelebrateInStyle event, hosted at The Glass Houses in Chelsea. Thanks to the lovely teams at InStyle and Single Edition Media, I got to hang out with some of my favorite blogger loves, throw back a few glasses of pinot grigio by Flight Song and score a sneak peek into all things gorgeous and glittery for the season.  Not bad for a school night, am I right?

Bulova Gold Watches

The highlight of the evening was of course was getting the inside scoop from a few of my favorite brands and learning about a few new ones.  We talked shoe trends with the head of marketing for DSW, makeup tips with a beauty editor from InStyle and accessories with the creative director of Bulova.  I mean, if this winter white clutchthis bright cherry red lipstick or this crystal-encrusted timepiece doesn’t bring joy to the world, I’m not sure what else will.  I also met the team from Tagspire, which is a new social network for sharing and discovering inspiration with others … but more on that in a post to come!

Vegetarian Mini Tacos

The icing on the cake?  Getting to take home a few goodies from new-to-me brands like Beautiful Textures, Balsam Hill, Alassis Candles and Rap Protein Gummies.

So I want to know: what are you most excited about for this holiday season?  Spending time with your family? Exchanging Secret Santa gifts with friends?  Indulging in a decadent meal or two?  Pre- and post-holiday gift shopping for loved ones (or more likely, for yourself)?  Try all of the above, my friend.  Here’s to an amazing season to come!

  2. My favorite part about the holidays is gift giving! I love the look on my loved one’s faces when they open a gift picked especially for them.
