Holiday Traditions: Christmas PJ’s

Holiday Traditions: Christmas PJ’s

Christmas Day OOTD!  Nothing I love more than a good holiday tradition, which is why Erica’s Fashion and Beauty and I are having a pajama party!  If your pj’s ever count as an OOTD Christmas Eve/Day is it, and with some really cute options from Avon this year there’s no reason not to refresh your lounge gear.

When we were little my brother and I planned our jammies for our favorite day and now I kinda still do that.  I have a stash of holiday jammies in red and green I pull out every year but when I saw this Winter Soft collection from Avon in soft shades I knew it was time to add something different to the collection.  I went for the Winter Soft Solid Knit PJ Pants in the soft lavender color.  I thought they would be something that I could wear year round with how soft and lightweight they are, but for the holiday’s I’ll pair them with an extra soft snowflake sweater and some new Avon slippers. Plus I just love the big satin bow tie!

I was so excited to see these Avon Winter Soft Memory Foam Bootie slippers in grey (also come in white and pink).  My Muk Luks died this year and I needed to replace, and these Avon booties did not disappoint!  The memory foam is so comfortable.  They were a little tight when you first put them on but once the foam shapes to your foot you’re golden!  I can not get over how comfy they are, they go from baking cookies to lounging watching Christmas movies on the couch, one of my favorite recent items, perfect for a chilly winter day.

These are a few of my favorite (Winter Soft) things…

The Winter Soft collection from Avon all starts with the seasonal favorite Winter Soft bath and body collection but this year also features a range of products in soft shades from these pj’s and slippers to this gorgeous blue necklace to stunning home goods, games, blankets and more!  They all beautifully pair together to create a really stunning gifts.  I think pairing the pj’s and slippers with a robe and bath and body set would be magical.  Or how about the beautiful throw blanket, 7-in1 Game board, and the set of mugs for a winter night in!  Either way I’m ready for my holiday traditions in my new Wintersoft pj’s!

“It’s Christmas morning and I’ve got to be honest, I did not wake up like this. LOL I did however feel comfy and cozy in my Avon pajamas! My sister, Sarah and I always spend Christmas Eve with our parents and have a family breakfast and gift exchange the next morning. No matter how old we get, Santa always brings us a new pair of pajamas. I’m wearing the Binge Watching version of Avon’s Joyful Beautiful Sleepshirt and Sarah is wearing Avon’s Joyful Beautiful Pajama Set in Tree Print. I’m really excited to give my family and friends Avon’s bath and body Senses and Skin So Soft gift boxes. Just add a bow or ribbon and they are ready to give!” – Erica’s Fashion and Beauty

Ghosts Of Christmas Past: San Francisco Ballet, Nutcracker

As I mentioned in my last post The Nutcracker is the a season tradition for me. Every 10 years the Sacramento Ballet does The Nutty Nutcracker a humorous take on the traditional story.  This year I’ll be attending the nutty version, let’s see how it holds up!

3.  25 Days Of Christmas on ABC Family

We have a few weeks to cram in all those favorite Christmas movies and ABC family’s 25 days of Christmas pretty much hits them all.  Here is there FULL listing of every movie they’ve got going on in the next 22 days.  See the list here.

4.  One For You, One For Me Rule.

Avon Bling Pave Watch ONLY $19.99

Avon Bling Pave Watch ONLY $19.99

Problem with Christmas shopping is it seems to be the time when you see all the stuff you’ve been searching for and on sale.  So the one for me one for you rule is just a necessary evil.  Like for me I’ve been looking for the right silver watch, well Avon has they Bling Pave Watch with Crystals By Swarvoski for only $19.99 (an $80 value!).  Soooo I shop a little for the family I add the watch for me.  Win.  Win!  You can score this deal too even if it’s not for you… (shop here).

5.  Christmas Cookies

Making Christmas cookies is the best tradition.  Brings back fond memories with my mom and brother… and when we had cookie making parties!  My favorite, and most time consuming, are the classic sugar cookies.  I use my Grandma Donnell’s recipe and to me they’re perfect.  Note:  If you want them soft use butter instead of crisco, if you want them a little harder (like my mom likes) use crisco instead of butter.  If you like them in the middle use half and half (which is what we usually do!)

Get Grandma Donnell’s Sugar Cookies Recipe here.

6.  Christmas Lights

On Christmas Eve we’d drive around after church to look at all the lights and that seriously was one of my favorite Christmas memories.  Now I still want to take the time and go be a looky loo at the lights, aka stalk peoples houses at night.

7.  It’s Red Lips Season

Avon Ultra Color Lipstick In Matte Ruby

Avon Ultra Color Lipstick In Matte Ruby

All the red lips you can handle!  Screw if you think you can pull of a red lip or not, just wear one!  I personally like a matte red lipstick like mark. Lipclick Matte ($11) in Siren or Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Matte Ruby (now only $5.99!!!).  If you want more of a sheen then try mark. All Butter Now in Fired Up ($11) it’s super moisturizing for winter lips!

8.  Wrapping Presents

Gift Wrapping Season!

Gift Wrapping Season!

Wrapping presents is my absolute favorite!  I’ll sit there and do it until my back is sore while a Christmas special is on tv!  My perfect night.  I also wrap for hire so you want me to do your gifts hit me up!

9.  Deck The Halls

Decking My Halls

Decking My Halls

Decorating for Christmas is the best way to spend a weekend.  (If you haven’t already)  Spend a few hours hunting for the perfect tree (or put up your fake one I don’t hate).  Then spend the rest of the day with some cider or hot chocolate and pulling out all your favorite decorations!  You need to save money anyways so stay home and deck the halls!

10.  Christmas Themed Manis!

mark. Nailed It Duo in Eggnog and Sugar Plum

mark. Nailed It Duo in Eggnog and Sugar Plum

Pretty much from here on out you have all the reason to have the jolliest Christmas mani’s!  From a classic red to full on holiday nail art, creating a festive mani is a little something you can do to bring some Christmas cheer.  I love the mark. Nailed It Duo for an unconventional look or for a classic red I like Avon Nailwear Pro Speed Dry in Red Red.  Add an accent nail in Avon Nailwear Pro in Golden Vision or top with one of Avon Dazzlers Top Coats!

11.  Christmas Music On Blast

Even though my iTunes seems to want to  play Christmas music all year long (seriously why does it always select Christmas music on shuffle!?), but those classic tunes are soothing, fun and festive!  Pandora’s Maria Carey Merry Christmas is the BEST!

 

12.  Holiday Soiree 

Hostessing and Holiday Parties!

Hostessing and Holiday Parties!

If you don’t have a holiday party to attend host one! It can be grand or just a few friends for drinks.  Either way it’s time to put on something special and socialize with friends and family!  Stay tuned for some holiday party ideas!

 

… and a partridge in a pear tree!
