Hello beautiful people! This past month's Sephora Play box was all about self-care before the holiday season. Well the holiday season came and went, but for me self-care is a daily/weekly thing. From lighting a candle, to buying a coffee, to making time to read 7 pages of a novel a night. I really did appreciate this month's Play Book with a section called, "In Defense of Staying in," with tips on the how to have a perfect night staying in. Nevertheless, this month's products were a good mix of hair, beauty, skincare, and fragrance. Fragrance is usually is my most missed item but it was a hit this month. Keep reading to hear this month's musings.

I'm surprisingly only a month behind on this Sephora Play review, but I've tried the hell out of these products and I'm excited to share my thoughts with you today. All of these products were new ones. Although I am familiar with all the brands some products were completely new for me to try!

I swear it was Thanksgiving and I blinked and the holiday season began. We're a week away from Xmas, 8 days away from Kwanzaa, and the last day of Hanukkah approaches us tomorrow night. I am quite a fan of the holiday season, and it had crossed my mind to do a gift guide, but I wasn't sure where to start. There are usually so many gift guides done by bloggers and influencers I thought this year I might take a rain check. If you remember I did a huge, curated gift guide (and New Year's guide) with Halls last December. However, one of my best friends encouraged me to do a gift guide this year and I thought I'd share a little one with some of my top picks to gift for the holiday season below.

Jewelry and I have had a long, complicated relationship. It started in 6th grade visiting my grandparents in New York for the summer when I'd stumble upon loads of discounted Claires earrings at tiny shops in Queens. Although my bartering skills strengthened, I collected more Mary-Kate and Ashley jewelry than I'd like to admit. And over the years I collected more and more eclectic jewelry with a slight fixation on Hello Kitty jewelry.
