Friday's Fancies: Home for the Holidays

"Oh there's no place like home for the holidays..."  Never have truer words been spoken. 

Instead of getting all dolled up for the holidays with our Friday's Fancies crew (we're certain that they will represent well), we thought we'd keep it real with you guys and show you what we really plan on wearing this holiday. We're taking some time off from work (two weeks to be exact, but hey, who's counting...haha), enjoying all that the holidays have to offer and spending time with our loved ones. And what better way to spend a morning than cuddled up on the couch, snuggled up under a cozy blanket, sipping something warm to drink (or cold, if you're Jayme) and watching one of the best movies of all time. You know where to find us.  ;)

December Birchbox!

Birchbox is on a roll! We have been so happy with our last few boxes and this month's box did not disappoint. December's theme was called "All Wrapped Up" and you can see the box top in the first picture was designed to look like a present. We both got the same items and we are so excited to start trying them out. First impressions say that whoever added the mirror to the Model Co lip gloss is a genius!

Friday's Fancies: It's the Most Sparkly Time of the Year

This weeks Friday's Fancies was about some "serious sparkle" and we hope that we did {av} and you guys proud with our outfit choice. We had fun mixing textures and colors for this party ensemble and we even had a fictional story line going on in our heads while we created it. See, this is a fabulous single lady ("all the single ladies, all the single ladies"...please forgive our outburst) is heading out to a fabulous holiday party. Who knows what the night holds? Who knows who she might meet under the mistletoe? All we do know is that she will sparkle and shine in this outfit!

Beauty Battle: Montagne Jeunesse Passion Peel Off Masque

As we've mentioned in past Beauty Battles, the purpose of these videos is for each of us to try out the same product, then keep our opinions to ourselves until we can share our thoughts with each other while the camera is rolling. This battle is a little different as we are trying out the Montagne Jeunesse Passion Peel Off Face Masques at the same time in front of the camera and then letting you guys know exactly what we think. We literally started the video, let the masque set while watching TV and then came back on camera to show you our reactions.

Hope you can make it through all of our laughter...

Passion Peel Off Face Masque
Can be found at Ulta.
Have you guys tried these face masques? If you haven't well you obviously know now that we don't recommend them. We should have learned our lesson with the Biore strips! :-)  

Thanks for watching!!

December POTM

We love bringing you guys our Polish Of The Month posts. It's always so much fun showcasing a special polish or polishes (because sometimes two is better than one) every single month. There are just so many awesome polishes out there that they really do deserve their own post! So without further adieu, we bring you...

December Polish Of The Month

Mendi's Pick - Essie's Jag-u-are and Leading Lady
I'm not typically a red nail polish kind of girl, but around the holidays, I make an exception. I've been dying to use this Leading Lady red glitter, so I decided to pair it with a red base. Something about red finger nails just exudes the holiday spirit to me! But maybe I need to give red a chance more often throughout the year as well!!

Jayme's Pick - Essie's Beyond Cozy (Winter Collection)
This is the perfect holiday nail polish! It's a very fine gold glitter and had excellent coverage. Two coats was all that was needed. This polish screams the holiday season without being too much that you can't wear it everyday. Just gorgeous! And the best part for me and I do think it's a combo of the polish as well as two coats of my Orly Topcoat, but the above picture was taken 6 days after I painted my nails. 6 days!! And this manicure even survived a long weekend in NYC. I'm beyond impressed. This is a color that everyone needs in their collection. 

So now it's your turn...tell us what colors have been residing on your nails lately. Have your fingertips been in the holiday spirit too??

Holiday Ornament Swap

About a month ago we decided to participate in Dreaming of Dimples and Living in Yellow's Holiday Ornament Swap. We were each paired up with two amazing bloggers who we would send ornaments to and we'd also have another two bloggers who would send ornaments to us. (Fun, right?!?)  It was a wonderful way to meet some new blogger friends and we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them, which made shopping for their ornaments so much more personal!! Today is the link-up party, so it's finally time to share the details with you guys...

Jayme received her ornament from Jessah at Dreaming of Dimples:
Anyone who knows Jayme, knows that she loves anything that sparkles and the girl has a love affair with shoes and nail polish, so Jessah nailed it with her ornament and extra goodies!

Mendi received her ornament from Lori at A Crazy Walk on the Safe Side:
Lori and I chatted a few times over e-mail, so I slipped her a few hints that my tree "theme" is rustic outdoorsy chic (yes, I think I just made that a "style"). This gorgeous pinecone ornament will fit in perfectly with my red berry twigs and burlap garland.

If you want to see the ornaments that Jayme & I sent to our gift recipients, then you'll have to visit their blogs, so be sure to hop on over to see what Jenn from Perfectly Imperfect received from Jayme and what Sami from Sami's Shenanigans received from Mendi.

Jayme and her mom are spending the weekend in NYC doing lots of Christmas shopping and enjoying all of the holiday sights...


I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait to hear all about it!! 

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!
