My Holiday Favorites

Twist Me Pretty's Abby shows off her Holiday Favorites


I’ve been feeling so nostalgic lately: the Christmas music, the parties, the lights.  It really is the most wonderful time of the year!  Before the holiday season gets too crazy, I wanted to share a few things I’ve loved this year, as well as other gift ideas I’ve found while shopping.  Welcome to my Holiday Favorites!

Abby's Holiday Favorites displayed on a white dressing table. Check it out if you need inspiration this holiday season!

Abby loves Essie Nail Polish. Find out why at Twist Me Pretty.

Essie Nail Polishes.  Perfect to add to bigger gifts or to put with a kind note and batch of cookies.  You literally cannot go wrong with nail polish and Essie is always a favorite.

Abby wears a Biossance Detoxifier mask - a Holiday Favorite for sure! Twist Me Pretty.

You guys are familiar with these Detoxifier masks from Biossance by now, yes?  They’re my favorite masks and would make the perfect Christmas gift!  You mix two packets together and then use the brush that’s included in the set to paint the product all over a clean face.  Feels sooo crazy good.  When it dries, it becomes rubbery and you just peel it right off!  The mask gently removes toxins while cleansing the skin and purifying pores!  I’ve worked with Biossance a lot this year — because I love them — and they’ve generously given my readers a 20% off coupon code, LOVEABBY.  So now you have no excuse to give one my all-time favorites a try!!  You can buy the set of four here, or you can purchase them individually, perfect for stocking-stuffers!

Abby displays her mantra bands - inspirational holiday favorites at Twist Me Pretty.

Mantra bands.  These are my favorite little bracelets and I thought they’d make the perfect gift because they are semi-personalized.

Essie nail polish, Sephora lip kits, JK Rowling's latest novel... what could be better than Abby's holiday favorites?

Personalized watercolor portraits make perfect holiday gifts. Read about this and Abby's other holiday favorites at Twist Me Pretty!

I love our watercolor from Hyde The Wild Boar!  If you’re looking for a more meaningful and heartfelt present, this would be it.

You can't go wrong with jewelry this festive season! See Abby's holiday favourites at Twist Me Pretty.

Abby shows off her amazing collection of LipSense products. Holiday favorites of 2016 for sure. Find out more at Twist Me Pretty.You all know I’ve been obsessing over these long wear lipsticks.  If you’re unfamiliar with them, they’re amaaazing.  You can purchase a collection here (click “Lips” and then LipSense collections) and if you need help picking out the perfect shade, I’d love to help you!  I’ve put together a private Facebook page — just for my bestest of friends!! — where you can upload a picture of yourself so we can recommend a great color, or you can browse through what a specific color looks like on others.  Request to join here.  These would make great gifts for anyone who loves lipstick!

Too Faced's festive makeup kit definitely makes Abby's list of holiday favorites for 2016.
