Whew! It’s officially the holiday season and things are starting to get busy, busy, busy! Tis the season for lots of holiday parties, holiday outfits and holiday shopping! I always love getting a little extra dressed up for things during the holidays so sweaters with a little gold detailing, sparkly pumps or a little touch of fur are must haves for the perfect holiday outfit. The subtle gold details in the sweater makes this skirt & OTK boot outfit perfect for a low key festive outfit but I also love that it can be worn with some black distressed denim for a casual, festive outfit for everyday. The perfect wardrobe piece for girls on the go, dressed down for day, dressed up for night!
Another one of my holiday season must haves? Easy beauty routines & secrets! I know I don’t always have time to make sure the hair and makeup are perfect for all those holiday happenings and not to mention it can get exhausting & expensive making sure you’re looking perfect for every holiday event you go to. Luckily I’ve found a new Knoxville secret that I’m quite obsessed with. The Douglas J Aveda Institute. $16 blowouts, $24 makeup applications and $49 90 minute facials! Talk about a game changer. I’m always wishing I could justify a weekend facial after a few busy weeks (and maybe one too many nights of falling asleep with my makeup on) and even more so a blowout before an event, holiday party or heck, even a date! And at these prices there’s not too much justifying you have to do! All services at the Aveda Institute are performed by students yet all supervised by a professional. They all make sure you’re taken care of and you hardly feel like you’re in a learning setting.
For this holiday look, I was treated to a 90 minute facial, an amazing blowout and a full makeup application. While it’s definitely not a quick experience, it is a great way to have a little bit of time to relax, and not have to worry about getting yourself ready. So if any of you Knoxville ladies have a weekend event and need a little downtown “me” time before hand I highly suggest checking out the Douglas J Aveda Institute. I absolutely loved my experience and will definitely be going back!
