Countdown to Holiday! 24 Days of Tea & Mani and P&G 12 Days of Holiday | DAVIDsTea, Ciaté, CoverGirl

December 1, 2013

Happy December 1!

We're just getting so close to the Holidays now.  And here at The Office Chic HQ (i.e. my home), we've just opened the Day 1 windows of the DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea and Ciaté Mini Mani Month while listening to Kelly Clarkson's Baby It's Cold Outside ft Ronnie Dunn on 98.1 CHFI, listening to this channel a tradition for us every December!

And here's the mani:


P&G Beauty has challenged their #BeautyUnited Bloggers to a 12 Days of Challenge plus an opportunity for our readers to win some great prizes!  Today theme is Under the Mistletoe and we all know what that means — Lips! 

And here's a sneak peek to the giveaway:


On another note, I had my first Holiday party last night, it was so much fun!  Here's a little recap of last night makeup and hair:

I've done the same makeup as shown in my recent post on "How to Transition from Day to Night Makeup".  As for the hair, I've used the Rowenta Beauty Curl Active that was featured in my Holiday Gadget Gift Guide.  To prep my hair, I used Matrix Biolage Tamanu Oil Strengthening Treamtment and Heat Resist Iron Tamer.  To add texture, I used Redken Fashion Wave 07 and set the curls with Control Addict 28 High-Control hairspray.

Until next time,
