Five on Friday: Five lazy-girl holiday survival musts

Friday, December 27, 2013

1. L'Oreal Youth Code BB Cream covers flaws, moisturizes, and provides SPF all in one product. It doesn't get any easier than that.

2. LUSH Santa Baby Lip Tint is super concentrated, but you can apply just a little for a sheer tint of colour or layer it on for a party look. It also works as a cheek tint too. (I have been using only three products on vacation this year: BB cream, this tint, and black mascara. So easy.)

3. Black leggings have been my holiday staple so far, as I refuse to wear "real pants" when I'm on vacation. I have been pairing them with tunics, sweater dresses, chambray shirts and today, an oversized plaid shirt. Comfort & joy.

4. If you need to bring cookies to a holiday party, try palmiers. They take TWO INGREDIENTS and are so easy to make, yet look fancy and taste wonderful. Tip: don't do the "speed defrost" option with your puff pastry, aka don't microwave it - that can wreck the dough. Patience, young ones. Here's the recipe.

5. Quesadillas are so easy and quick to whip up for dinner and a nice alternative when you're sick of turkey, gravy, and stuffing. I often just root through the fridge and throw in a bunch of cheese and random produce - avocados, peppers, mushrooms, anything goes - but if you're feeling slightly less lazy these grilled chicken and pineapple quesadillas from the Pioneer Woman are my favourites.

Hope you're having a merry and lazy holiday!
