Seasonal Survival: 6 Things Busy Women Need to Simplify…

As your calendar fills up, your to-do lists grow and you start to feel completely overwhelmed, take some steps to simplify your life this season. Slow down, give in to things that make life a little easier and feel GOOD. After all, YOU deserve it!

Not sure where to start? Let us help!

1. DÉCOR TO YOUR DOOR

What’s the one thing many of us buy over the holidays to spruce up our home and dining table before friends and family come over? Flowers, of course!

This year, skip the hassle of shopping for your favorite blooms, then spending time cutting and arranging them. Instead, purchase some gorgeous faux flowers that ship straight to your door and last well after the holidays. (Hello, convenience!!)

2. LUX LOOK WITH BAKED-IN TIME SAVINGS!

Custom lash and brow services, a simplified beauty routine and time to relax with a lash nap…who wouldn’t want that during the holiday madness?!

Most women spend so much time focusing on what they can do for others over the holidays. This leaves them with–you guessed it—approximately zero time for themselves.

If there’s anything we know, it’s when you look and feel good, that extra confidence boost will completely transform your holiday gloom into holiday game. (Even with your in-laws staying at your house for a week…way to go, girl!)

Find a Lash Lounge near you and view the customizable services calling your name!

3. CONVENIENT CLEANING

Two words: robot vacuum! Sure, it could drive your four-legged friends a bit crazy, but it will keep you from sobbing into a dustpan! Why exert more energy than you have to to keep your house spic and span?

Do yourself a favor and get one of these genius gadgets ahead of the holiday hustle! (Bonus: Now Santa for sure won’t think a vacuum is a present! It’ll be your little gift to humanity.)

4. QUICK QUOTES

When the holidays get overwhelming, sometimes just the thing we need is an uplifting message or quote to give us that inner boost. Our go-to inspiration? Influential women in history! Words of wisdom and stories of strength from this book will inspire you all season long.

(Psst…and if you’re in need of a special gift for your best gal pals, this is it!)

5. MOUTHWATERING MENU…MINUS THE MESS!

Dreading all the cooking or not a fan of making certain dishes? We feel you! Make it super easy this year. Host a potluck or order those sides, desserts and sweet treats in!

A number of companies offer a variety of scrumptious gourmet dishes that can be delivered to your home (even in a rush) and are sure to please any palate…even the picky ones! You’ll spend less time in the kitchen and more laughing and making memories…which is what the holidays are all about!

6. HEY, ALEXA!

Whether you need a weather update or to ask for a recipe, want the convenience of tracking a package or adding items to your Amazon cart, Alexa is your “girl.”

Until you test out this virtual assistant, you won’t believe how much it can help you. Learn how it works and visit Amazon.com to purchase your new BFF!

If you’re not quite ready to take the plunge with Alexa, check out some other popular virtual assistants.


It’s no secret. We give so much of our time and ourselves over the holidays, which is why, large or small, be kind to yourself this season. Don’t just dream about making the holidays simpler this year…make it happen!

This is yet another costume idea that you can totally repurpose. But if you do have to purchase a couple things, chances are you already have most of these pieces in your closet. You will just need to grab a striped shirt, black skirt, suspenders, red (or black) heels and a red beret.
