I was a little worried I would look like a disco ball exploded on me with a product called Crystal Confetti. But after my first use I was happy to say its just the right amount, it gives me a bit of a sparkly glow with just a hint of glitter.

The scent is very pretty its reminds me of Cherry Blossom and Amber Blush. And as you can see from the swatch below it just gives a hint of sparkle and would look great for any holiday party.

If you are starting your holiday shopping Bath and Body Works has so many great gifts from stocking stuffers to gift sets. My daughter just turned 10 and she and her friends all have one thing on their birthday and Christmas lists this year….Bath and Body Works!

I bought my daughter her first BBW product a few months ago and now the girls are all but obsessed. As you can see above my kids bathroom counter now looks like a Bath and Body works store post birthday. I love that I can go grab gifts for my daughters and her friends. And candles, soap and other great items for the grown up girls on my list.  At this point I probably need a punch card!

Create your own Dove Beauty Chain!

One thing you can count on finding in my house is Dove products. From my favorite Dove body washes to the super creamy Dove Beauty Bar we always have a stock on hand. I love how soft and moisturized it leaves my skin. My favorite part is it works on the littlest guy in my house with sensitive skin all the way to the biggest. A one size fits all cleanser it smells great and works even better.

Since 1957, Dove has been providing real women with real beauty benefits. With 1/4 moisturizing cream and mild cleansers, the Beauty Bar actually helps skin feel more firm and elastic compared to ordinary soap.
