Holiday Hair Renewal

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Pantene at Walmart, but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.

Have you even started your holiday shopping yet? I'm just about done and couldn't be more pleased! This is probably the first time I've ever been able to complete it this early so now I can concentrate on the numerous fun holiday parties coming up.

Around Thanksgiving I trudge through my closet to pull out any holiday clothing items to make sure they're clean and pick out any accessory items I want to consider. I also make sure I'm in full stock of my basics for the month like stockings, shaving cream and makeup primer. Nothing worse than running out of something that's part of your routine as you're getting ready.

When it comes to styling your hair, you want to start your style with clean, hydrated hair by using Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner. This duo has a potent blend of Pro-V nutrients to clean my hair super gently and give it a boost of hydration. This Pantene duo makes it feel like my hair can handle anything from a hot blow dryer to cold winter air.

Right now, save big on the Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner Dual Pack at Walmart. Pick both up in stores for a limited time for just $9.88 – a $17 value! I picked these up quickly and easily during my weekly shopping trip so I could get home to start getting ready for the soirees.

I really do love getting dressed up for the holiday parties as I find it quite permissible, in fact, required, that one wear bigger than usual fashion pieces and at least one piece of larger-than-life bling. So this is the time of year I wear the huge cocktail rings and I have this black faux fur wrap that goes with everything. Both are a little over the top, which is thankfully completely ok this time of year.

What's your go-to piece for the seasonal parties? Do share in the comments!

Physicians Formula Brow Last Longwearing Brow Gel

I’ve been at a bit of a loss when it comes to keeping my brow hairs in place. I’ve been oscillating between a wax pencil from ASBH and something called Eye Brow Coat from Daiso. I have my father’s brows so crazy hairs that do their own thing sometimes so my brows getting “messy” is a thing.

Let’s file this post under, “I forgot I had this,” shall we? It’s PHYSICIANS FORMULA Brow Last Longwearing Brow Gel ($10.95 @, and it’s a, “longwearing, water-resistant (I think waterproof), transfer-proof, smudge-proof, budge-proof transformer with brown-enhancing ingredients.

Veil Cosmetics Automatte

Shiny is great when it comes to jewels and cars but no so much for the face. Do you carry a touch up powder in your purse? I do. I think most women who are into makeup do and it’s usually in the form of a pressed powder. Well that is all about to change. Introducing VEIL COSMETICS Automatte Mattifying Base & Touch-Up Makeup ($39 @

This is a colorless, powderless, weightless, anti-shine touch up balm will be all you need to tote with you in your purse for touch ups. To me, it’s a touch up powder without the powder combined with blotting paper without the paper! I remember Mally Beauty came out with something like this many years ago and I actually wrote about it back in 2010 here. Do you remember this one? So it’s not a totally new concept but I don’t think that one caught on and I think it should.
