Happy Holidays + Neutrogena Giveaway







From our small, and festively attired, family to yours - Happiest Holidays! I cannot believe that Christmas is approaching a week away! My favorite season disappearing before my eyes. Our tree is chock full of presents, all happily wrapped in plaids and golds and kraft paper, red ribbon and bows that the cat keeps gnawing on (likely out of fury about that costume session above). 

We have a few plans between us and some guests for Christmas - we're headed to the Nutcracker tomorrow night after work, one of my most cherished holiday traditions. I love to get dolled up and sip champagne and then watch the gorgeous ballerinas dance! Last year was our first year at the Portland Ballet and it didn't disappoint. This weekend also marks the start of Ben's winter break, so hopefully we'll get out and do something festive like visit Zoo Lights or take a drive to see the Christmas lights in Portland. I'm working through this next holiday week, with just Christmas day off, so I've been taking my lunch breaks to finish Christmas shopping around the city and then frantically wrapping at home. I'm entirely unsure of when I'm going to get a chance to bake some more cookies for guests or clean the house, but if the holidays aren't a time for stressful rushing around then I don't know what is!

Because I've got stocking stuffers and gifts galore on the brain, I have a bit of a late Christmas giveaway (consider it your pre-Christmas entry and post-Christmas win that'll get you set for the New Year in pretty make-up) from one of my awesome partners over the course of 2014 - Neutrogena! Neutrogena's been kind enough to offer you a giveaway of a few of my favorite things: their Tripe Repair Shampoo and Conditioner, Healthy Skin Foundation, Moisture Smooth Color Stick, MicroMist* (from Neutrogena's suncare collection) and Hand Cream. They're also throwing in a $50 Walmart gift card to the winner so that they can snag more Neutrogena favorites in store.

I've shared a bit about my Neutrogena beauty routine on the blog and things haven't changed in the last few months. I'm still a die hard fan of the  Moisture Smooth Color Sticks and have converted friends to using the easy-to-apply color sticks for everyday lip color. I've also been using the Healthy Skin Foundation for the past year or so and haven't been tempted to change my foundation! I've found it's the best color match for my skin and helps to also clear up any blemishes before they happen. I'd highly recommend it if you're looking for a new, functional foundation that boasts great color matching!

*The MicroMist is a no rub, hands-free aerosol spray that provides the results of a professional salon airbrush tan at home! Perfect for any wintry vacations you have to tropical spots!

Be sure to enter the easy giveaway below! It ends on Christmas Day and is open to all U.S. entrants! The randomly selected winner will be emailed by me and have 48 hours to claim their prize.
