Raves & Faves: DECEMBER

December came! I didn’t make nearly as many cookies as I was hoping…

ANYWAY. Here is my list of December loves.

1. Candy Cane Bliss soap by Bath and Body Works – it smells yummy and Christmas-y.

I thought this might feel “cold” and have a harsh peppermint scent. Instead, it’s creamy, sweet, vanilla-y with a hint of peppermint. Even the Hubs approved!

2. Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride tea.

I loved curling up in front of the twinkly Christmas tree with a steamy cup of tea after putting Amelie to sleep. Celestial Seasonings is a local company and I thought their holiday teas were an easy way to embrace some Christmas cheer, as well as being such festive filler for the gifts we gave.

3. A few summers ago, my Mom bought me The Buffy by Lush. It’s an exfoliating lotion bar that you smooth on in the shower. Just to be clear (because I found this a little confusing), it’s not a soap – it’s a lotion in a solid bar form. It’s nice for the winter so you don’t have to smear on loads of lotion after your shower:

Lush products are decadent (ie pricey) and this was no exception. I doubt I would ever buy this for myself but it’s such a treat! Do you have any favorites from Lush?

4. Obviously Amelie’s First Christmas had to make it in here; it wore us all out!

She was so super spoiled and I loved it!

5. And, I’ll leave you with this adorable commercial:

We aren’t even mid-way through January and I’ve already posted December Raves and Faves! Not too shabby, Candace! *pats self on back*

For your endless delight, Raves & Faves of yore: 2012, 2011, and 2010.
