December wish list

Ah, yes. December. The month of cold, blistery weather, quality Christmas movies on daytime TV, and cats unwillingly dressed up in deer antlers and knitted socks. The holidays are nearing and you are completely lost on what to get your Secret Santa at Mercy. Where do you turn? What do you do?  Don’t fret, darling. I’ve got you covered like butter on rye. Here is my wish list for the lovely month of December.

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm, $7.50 at

This lip balm is the PERFECT stocking stuffer for literally anyone. describes it as “an emollient balm that soothes and relieves dry, chapped, irritated lips.” With an SPF of 25 and 5 different flavors to choose from, your lips will thank you this winter.

Under Armour Women’s Graphic Pom Pom Beanie, $24.99 at Dick’s Sporting Goods

Beanies are a Winter staple, and this one is no exception. Whether it’s for a run, a football game, or for your best friend, this hat is super cute for any cold-weather occasion. Includes added pom for added fun.

Women’s SONOMA life + style Essential Turtleneck, $9.99 at Kohl’s

I love turtlenecks so much. Why? They keep my neck warm! They also made a comeback this year, who knew? Pair this with some high-waisted jeans or a patterned knee-length skirt and you’ll be the belle of the ball (or maybe just the Christmas party).

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Opal Glow On The Go, $20.00 at

With winter drying out and creating a dull effect on my skin, I need a bit of an “oomph” to bring its natural glow. This BECCA kit is perfect for that. The kit comes with a small compact of a golden, shimmer highlighter to sweep onto checks for an instant facelift. The kit also comes with a lip gloss-like case with a liquid highlighter to add emphasis to certain areas of the face. So cute that they come in travel sizes.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture – Sensitive Skin, $9.11 at Target

Neutrogena is one of the few face products that I trust because of their reputation of being dermatologist recommended. Massage a pump of this moisturizer on your face once you get out of the shower (or apply as needed) and it will keep your face looking fresh, new, and feeling soft all winter.
