6 Must Have Beauty Essentials…

As the holiday season is approaching, the more and more stress comes along with it – The shopping and crowds, back-to-back parties and the endless gifting. That’s why I’ve round up the essentials below that you will appreciate from head to toe!

AQUIS Waffle Luxe Hair Towel ($35.00 at AQUIS.com, Bloomingdales, Urban Outfitters and Sephora)
Waffle Luxe sounds like she might ‘go on a bit’. Indeed, with increased surface area from the layered fabric, Waffle Luxe loves thicker hair requiring more water wicking. Great for African and Asian hair. New generation Aquitex improves absorbency and comfort. Wraps and tucks easily leaving hands free while hair dries. Dries fast with less friction, to minimize frizz and damage.

Conair Velvet Touch Paddle Brush 
One of Conair’s best-selling brushes has added three new colors to its collection for an updated look — black, navy, and red, all with a striking gold accent. These number 1 selling brushes are something even the man in your life might be stealing from your bathroom. Made for everyday brushing of all hair lengths, the ball-tipped bristles won’t snag or pull, and are designed to prevent breakage when used on both wet and dry hair. The soft-touch handle makes for an easy, comfortable hold and the flexible cushion base makes brushing stress-free.

Scunci Glitter No-Slip Headwraps ($4.99 for set of 3 at Target.com)
scünci’s beloved no-slip-grip headwraps have been updated with a stylish glitter finish. They’re reversible, won’t damage or pull hair, and stay put while they shine.

DDF Nourishing Eye Cream ($39.00 at Ulta.com and DDFSkincare.com)
An ultra-rich, emollient eye cream that is easily absorbed into the skin. This non-greasy, anti-oxidant rich eye cream fights free radicals and helps restore moisture to the delicate eye area for a more youthful look. Ideal for all skin types including sensitive and blemish prone.

Lumene VALO Beauty Drops ($23.99 at Walgreens.com and Amazon.com)
Precious berries are the magic behind this enchanting beauty treatment. Antioxidant-rich Nordic cloudberry and lingonberry combine with vitamin C to brighten and nourish, giving a wonderful natural radiance. The velvety texture indulges skin for the duration of the 28-day treatment, for super-soft skin that looks glowing and beautifully invigorated. Give your skin a boost with the power of Arctic berries.

Lumene LAHDE Pure Arctic Miracle 3-in-1 Micellar Water ($7.99 at Walgreens.com and Amazon.com)

Proposing While Abroad

: Here’s What You Need to Know

As if going on a trip abroad isn’t exciting enough as it is, making a marriage proposal to the woman you love is an exceptional way to officially begin your lives together. If you are the type of person that is usually sensible and predictable, engaging while abroad will bring a real spark to your relationship. There are a few practicalities that you will need to consider to ensure that your creative proposal goes exactly the way you have planned it. Without question, the highlight of all marriage proposals lies in the selection of the engagement ring. You can go to ascotdiamonds.com to look at various styles and find your engagement ring of choice.

Choosing the Perfect Setting

Whether you’re planning to make your proposal while aboard a cruise ship or while trekking in the Himalayas, there’s going to be one cozy spot that just feels like the right setting to get on one knee. The good news is that you’ll have a lot of different places to choose from while abroad, but you won’t have much time for advance planning. You can opt to walk around with your engagement ring in the breast pocket of your coat, just waiting for the right moment or you can go off by yourself and attempt to scout out good locations in advance. Although it is great to want to make sure that your proposal is unique, don’t go crazy waiting for the stars to align, in hopes of a sign from the heavens that the mood is exactly right.

Keeping Valuables Safe While Traveling

Engagement rings are expensive, and the tiny ring boxes that they are held in can attract the wrong type of attention from professional thieves while abroad. Make sure that you make the proper declarations as you travel safely to different countries, but keep your engagement ring and other values for that matter out of plain sight. It would be very difficult, not to mention costly, to try to find a replacement engagement ring on the fly while you are in a foreign land. Use a travel safe to keep your engagement ring secure and use your street smarts to avoid potentially dangerous situations.

Making Your Proposal a Surprise

If you’re traveling abroad with your significant other, it’s going to be a real challenge keeping your proposal plans under wraps. Since you probably normally share everything together, you yourself might accidentally reveal the details of your plans with context clues, or even your body language. First and foremost, do whatever it takes to keep jewelry safely hidden while traveling. This might require you to be a little devious, but remember that you don’t want to spoil the surprise. If you can, ask the staff at your hotel to aid you in making your proposal so that you are able to fulfill your surprise plans.

Proposing while abroad is a lot like making a proposal at home – only a lot more complicated. You won’t really have too many places to tuck away the engagement ring safely, so you may want to propose during the first few days of your trip. This will allow you to relieve stress and enjoy the rest of your vacation with your bride to be.
