What's up guys and gals?! Today I'm here to bring you my annual holiday blog in collaboration with Brea Mall and their parent company Simon! In a little change up from the usual, I was able to tour 3 stores AND give you babes a look at their killer holiday party. So, without further ado, let's call the reindeer and fly on ahead!
My first stop on the day's adventure was to MAC Cosmetics, who would also later be featured at the holiday party! MAC is the OG of makeup, the one everyone I knew saved up their money to buy. Their lipsticks are nothing short of legendary, and they made sure to put them at the forefront of their holiday collection this year! Each lipstick is enclosed in a limited edition glitter packaging, as are the holiday brush set and the holiday face palette, who's pans are pressed with stars! If there's a special person in your life who, like me, is full on obsessed with glitter and sparkles, these sets make a GREAT stocking stuffer!
Also, can we just talk about how GORGEOUS all the girls at the MAC store are?! Makeup on fleek, all day, every day!
Next up were my babes at Michael Kors, and I think you guys know by now how much I love this store and the amazing babes who work at it! Every time you walk in you're greeted with smiles! The clothes and bags this season are SO cool! I complain every year to anyone who will listen about the lack of color during the winter months, and it's like Michael Kors heard my pleas and then made this collection! Bright primary colors and stunning metallics paired with bold black and white logos create the ultimate winter vibe.
Here's a shot of me and some of the incredible babes who work at Michael Kors! My absolute FAVORITES!
The last of the stores I visited before the big party was Marciano! Much to my joy, Marciano was also bringing color into the new year! Vibrant teals and mustard yellows were paired with gold jewelry and sequins to ring in 2020 in style. This year's theme for most New Years parties will be the "Roaring 20s" in celebration of the new decade, so Marciano delivered with flapper aesthetics and bling! I fell so in love with the chain necklace you see me wearing in these shots that my mom (who happens to be my incredible photographer) bought it for me for my birthday, so expect to see it in a lot more of my posts! Thanks mom!
Who doesn't love a good party?! Every year I look forward to seeing all the wonderful people who make Brea Mall what it is, and this is where it happens! Some of the wonderful brands that took part in this year's party were Godiva, Lush, California Pizza Kitchen, Nordstrom's Cafe, Sephora, Michael Kors, Tatcha, Ben Bridges, T2 Tea, NYX, Swarovski, Aveda, Bare Minerals, MAC, and Kiehls!
Godiva was out in force promoting their latest holiday chocolate box which is SO luxurious! It's wrapping is embedded with Swarovski crystals!
Lush was making everyone custom bath bombs, and their stand made the whole mall smell AMAZING. All of the packaging you see was made of recycled materials so as to not waste
Sephora was offering makeup touch ups to all the influencers there, and showing off their huge range of products!
Tatcha was talking all about their amazing charity program which helps underprivileged girls in developing countries! Did you know that a part of the profit from EVERY Tatcha product goes to charity! As if they weren't one of my favorite brands already!
Ben Bridge had some truly breathtaking jewelry on display. No one knows how much girls love diamonds more than them!
Kiehls was also educating people about their charity event, which helps deliver meals every day to people in need!
To me, this event always signals the start of the holiday season, and I look forward to it every year! As always, I want to say a huge thank you to Brea Mall and all of the amazing brands and people I get to work with! I hope this blog has given you some ideas about holiday gifts and clued you in to some of the amazing things these brands do!
