With just four days left until Christmas, (insert meltdown) I partnered up with Hanes to share my Top 5 Tips to survive the holiday season!
5. Dress in Layers
This tip applies towards anyone + everyone, but especially in San Francisco. There is nothing like walking out of a warm + cozy heated home and into the cold without all the layers. I’m talking ALL the layers. In fact, I have been wearing a backpack in lieu of a purse just to house all of my layers!
From scarves to tights to gloves I need it all!
4. Wear sensible shoes
With a patented contoured footbed with superior arch and heel support, dual-density cushioning, a cool and breathable lining, lightweight materials, and flexibility that moves with you, The Harding boots from Naturalizer are a freakin’ dream! In addition to being really comfortable, the exposed silver zipper and stacked heel make these a VERY fashionable bootie option!
3. Take care of yourself
Don’t let the chaos of the holiday season get the best of you + let you forget about yourself! I have been (trying) to work in as many workouts this season with Basecamp. As painful as it is to get up at 6 am every morning, the crew at Basecamp makes it pretty darn easy and you are in and out in 45 minutes!
I also recently noticed that my vision was not what it used to be!
-Insert me messaging guys the WRONG names on Bumble!-
So, I partnered up with Jins in Union Square to get my vision right. The 20/20 team is NOW offering in-house vision exams at the JINS store. This exam takes less than 15 minutes and costs $40! After the exam, I selected these green frames and had prescription glasses made and fitted in another 30 minutes!
Bam! No more ‘Bumble Blunders’ for me!
2. Shop YOUR Closet
There is no need to go out and buy a new outfit for every holiday party this week! Almost everything from this look (except the Hanes), came from my closet from past seasons. In fact, I forgot I even owned the scarf + found it while cleaning out my closet, for my Poshmark closet.
Put your phone down + enjoy the holiday season! Instagram will still be there on the 26th + no one wants to see what you ate for Christmas dinner on Snapchat!
