practicing self-care during the holiday season

 ‘nourishing yourself in a way that helps you
blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable,
and you are worth the effort.’
— deborah day
 the holiday season is an incredibly busy
time (this is not news to anyone!).
working full-time, dedicating time to friends
and family, attending various holiday
parties and gatherings — this girl is busy.
i am sure the same is true for you, too!
with numerous work and personal functions
taking place this time of year, stress can be prominent.
however, taking time for yourself, while
allowing time for your body to decompress,
is important for your physical and emotional wellness.

disclosure: l’occitane usa gracioulsy gifted me the advent calendars pictured in this post.
as per usual, all opinions are my own!
one of my favorite ways to decompress?
skin and body care!
i greatly enjoy applying face masks,
rubbing on delicious-smelling body creams,
lip scrubs, and other oils, lotions, etc.
the act of applying these, and the spa-like scent,
elicits a calm-like feeling. light a candle, grab a
new book and cup of tea, and you are ready
for a stress-free evening.
l’occitane graciously gifted me two
advent calendars in preparation for the holidays.
both are filled with tiny (and adorable) skincare
goodies to sample throughout the month of december.
a few of the goodies you can find inside?
almond shower oil
almond supple skin oil
almond delicious hand cream
cherry blossom shimmery body lotion
divine cream
divine youth oil
shea butter hand cream
 shea butter lip balm
 and more!
