My mother-in-law comes up with the best stocking stuffers - jewelry, gloves, socks, beauty products, the largest candy canes you've ever seen. The thing is a treasure trove! It makes me feel like a kid again.
There were a few awesome products and gifts I was given this year, and I wanted to share them with you so that you could stop whatever you're doing and rush out to buy these items. I mean it. Totally worth it. Take a half day of vacation. Make it happen. Just read the last one off the coffee cup sitting on my desk. Although, I would much rather have a coffee cup that encouraged me to take half days of vacation.
I'm a lover, believer, supporter of all things Bert's Bees, but after meeting this lip balm, my affections have wavered. It's minty, tingly feeling like Bert's, but it tastes amazing and supposedly freshens your breath since the balm uses peppermint oil. I think you can get this at Bath & Body Works. Buy it. Hide it. And don't leave it in your pocket and run it through the dryer. We've lost many a tube of Bert's this way.
I love these jeggings because they're thick and substantial feeling, and they don't make me feel like I'm walking around pantsless. Or worse, wearing pajama jeans. Now, for the record, I don't wear them with short shirts like the ones pictured above. I pair them with cardigans and longer blouses because, after all, jeggings may be comfortable, but they don't work miracles. If you think of them as leggings, then you'll probably feel they're a little pricey. But if you consider them jeans, they'll fall into an acceptable price range. It's all about perspective. And I'm a master at adjusting mine according to my wants.
Also, heed my warning, these leggings are definitely "inky." They rubbed blue dye onto my light tan leather car seats and now I can't get it off. And I'm also sitting on a towel. Any suggestions on how to remove blue jean dye from leather? Holler.
