The holidays focus on the idea of giving. We give gifts to the special people in our lives, we give money and toys to charity, and we even give our time to attend special events, such as our children’s holiday concerts; however, do we remember to give to the one person who remains with us our entire lives? OURSELVES! In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it is a good idea to pamper yourself. If you indulge in a few splurges, you will be infinitely more happy.
I hope you agree; we ladies deserve a little TLC! Check out the following four beauty splurges for the 2015 holidays.
Holiday Inspired Scented Lotions
Immerse yourself in the holiday spirit by purchasing a scented lotion. For instance, Bath and Body Works produces awesome body lotions with fragrances formulated to last all day. As their website proclaims, their brand of lotion “…contains more of what skin loves, leaving it feeling incredibly soft, smooth and nourished. Fortified with nutrient-rich ingredients like protective Vitamin E and conditioning Vitamin B5, our fast-absorbing, non-greasy formula delivers 16 hours of continuous moisture.”
New this year is the fragrance, Be Joyful. This playful holiday scent features a ” joyful blend of fizzy clementine, frosted jasmine & shimmering sugar.” Available for under $13 online, Be Joyful lotion will amp up your holiday spirit with something it unforgettable scent.

Dazzling Dusting Powder
Looking your best at a holiday party has never been easier. All you need to do is gift yourself with a dazzling dusting powder. Feel free to choose between silver or gold sparkles, depending on your personal taste. Charming Charlie offers a Gold Shimmer Dusting Powder for under $11 online. Spray on this luminous gold powder for the perfect finish to your party make-up. And don’t worry, it is non-oily, so it won’t cause a break out.

Soft Hands and Pretty Nails
A manicure works wonders to lift a woman’s spirits. Even if you can’t afford a salon manicure, you can give yourself an at home treatment. First, mix a batch of sugar hand scrub. Combine 1 tablespoon of hand soap with 1/3 cup sugar. Next, coat your hands with a small amount of olive oil. Finally, apply the sugar scrub, and work into the skin. The idea is to slough off dead skin cells. Rinse thoroughly, then finish with your favorite hand lotion.
Now that your hands feel luxuriously soft, complete this “gift” with a coat of red nail polish.
