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

Guys are always hard to shop for which is why I love gifting cologne.  Something they want but rarely go out and buy it for themselves.  My favorite from Avon is the Luck for him but the new Attraction is popular scent (3 piece set for $30) or pick up one of the other collection sets like Black Suede ($9.99 an oldie but a goodie) or Avon Instinct ($16.99).  Those bundle prices are unreal for men’s cologne!

Gift Guide: Things I Want To Buy Myself But End Up Gifting

The problem with this time of year is instead of shopping for my ever expanding Christmas list, I want to shop for myself!  I mean the deals are excellent and I always find things I never noticed before but I need!  What usually ends up happening is I buy the folks on my list things I would like!  It’s a win win situation… and maybe a dupe makes it into my shopping bag for myself too… ooopsies!  So let’s make a gift guide out of the things I want that are also great Christmas gifts for others!

 

1.  mark. Effortless Edge Sweatshirt in Black ($28).  

 

mark. Effortless Edge Sweatshirt $28

mark. Effortless Edge Sweatshirt $28

Ok, ok I know I already have it in beige (as seen here!), but I love it so much I want it in black too!  How cute would it be with some sequin leggings!?!

 

2.  Plaid Blanket Scarf

American Eagle Outfitters Plaid Blanket Scarf

American Eagle Outfitters Plaid Blanket Scarf

If you follow me on pinterest you’ll notice all my pins lately seem to include a holiday perfect plaid scarf!  Santa, take notes, I totally could use a plaid blanket scarf preferably in a red plaid.  This one from American Eagle seems to fit the bill considering my dream one from Express sold out… tear.

 

3.  Michael Kors Watch

Michael Kors Darci Watch

Michael Kors Darci Watch

A MK watch has been on my stalk list for years.  I think its about time I catch up with everyone else and get one!  I digress…, this would be a killer gift under anyone’s tree.  I’m loving the rose gold versions with red, holiday perfection!  (and a great way to wear traditional holiday colors!)

 

4.  mark. Eye Divine Soft Shimmer Shadow ($11)

mark. Eye Divine Shadows ($11)

mark. Eye Divine Shadows ($11)

These 3 heavenly shades are not only perfect for holiday in their cute packaging but also everyday colors that are wearable far past Christmas and New Years!  Stocking stuffers anyone!?

 

5.  mark. Glam Glimmer Clutch ($28)

mark. Glam Glimmer Clutch $28

mark. Glam Glimmer Clutch $28

I think a metallic clutch is pretty much a wardrobe staple, but this one also has a classic snakeskin pattern and a chain strap option!  Thinking this would be perfect for holiday outings, esp NYE, making it a great gift!  As a little gift-giving idea, wouldn’t it be great if this clutch was accompanied with some tickets!?  Ballet, concert or even just the movies!   And maybe a gift card to a favorite restaurant for a little diner and date night.

 

6.  mark. Go For A Ride Boots ($60)

mark. Go For A Ride Riding Boots

mark. Go For A Ride Riding Boots

Boots are always a winning gift idea!  Plus everyone likes to have a little something new they can wear Christmas Day.  A classic riding boot, in a go with everything brown, is a fool proof idea.  Maybe pair it with one of those plaid blanket scarfs.

 

7.  Kate Spade Agenda

Kate Spade Agenda

Kate Spade Agenda

These sell out like crazy so lucky you if you can grab one up.  This is both something functional and pretty to look at.  Kate Spade as such a great aesthetic making tasking way more fun.

 

8.  Candles… lots and lots of candles!

Avon Scented Candles $9.99

Avon Scented Candles $9.99

There are so many options but I haven’t met a person who doesn’t like getting a candle.  It sets the mood for a perfect winter night.  I love a good holiday spice scent like the Avon Holiday Spice Scented Candle ($9.99).  It’s a scent that works well for January too.  Really cute to package up a candle with this matches pinterest project.  I did it last year and it turned out great and super easy to do!

 

9.  Nail Polish 

mark. Nailed It $7

mark. Nailed It $7

Since I’m an adult and don’t get toys to play with on Christmas Day, I look forward to some nail polish in my stocking.  It gives me something to “play with.”  The mark. Nailed It Duo ($7) is again already packaged for the holiday and comes with 2 shades.  Sets are always better than a single.  Pair it with a nail file, base coat and/or top coat and a good hand cream like mark. Hand Cream ($6).  Could even go the extra mile and put it with a gift certificate to a nail salon.  Or if you’re looking for a good teacher/co-worker/etc gift putting some polish in a little bag with a note that reads “For Your Mistle Toes” is a cute idea!

 

10.  mark. Chain Reaction Necklace ($50)

mark. Chain Reaction Necklace $50

mark. Chain Reaction Necklace $50

Nothing says holidays like some major sparkle!  A full blinged out statement necklace will twinkle under those christmas lights and add that extra sparkle and fun.  It’s great as a gift because it’s not a necessity you typically buy for yourself but totally want!  And looks great with a LBD… if you’re looking for something to pair it with try the mark. Cross My Mind Dress ($42).

 

So, yea, basically I want to buy this all for myself so I’ll just buy it for all my well deserving friends and family.  Maybe Santa will deliver a few of these under my Christmas tree this year!
