What you need for a low key Christmas

christmas_ornament_from_pixabay_90c6453c-dba8-469c-83c3-4cea9773b5acI don’t know about where you live, but a lot of people are hyped about where to go and what to do to this Christmas day: movies, clubs, dates, lunch with friends, dinner parties, weddings, the list is long.

However, some others prefer a low key Christmas, just you, or you and the family, or close loved ones, putting your feet up and watching the latest season of Big Bang Theory or Ojukwu.

But while you ditch the mini sequined dress, stilettos, bright red lipstick or stylishly done hair for simple and cosy, light brushes of mascara can be among the comfort, simple and elegant beauty tools you may require.

Here’s my list of ‘your choice’ fashion items for a low key Christmas-

1. Sergio Rossi’s fluffy slippers dubbed “the perfect choice for a lazy weekend”. This is super comfy, beautiful and stylish and is on my list of what I want for Christmas. It’s cosy for a stay at home Christmas and it has such a soft and warm feel against your feet, that they will thank you.

From Maybelline to MAC to Kylie Cosmetics and Fenty Beauty, there was a lot to choose from. For this post, I chose Fenty Beauty’s Gloss Bomb lipstick in dusty pink shade as a go-to for lip simplicity.

On Instagram, I stumbled upon this golden yellow knitted cardigan that is simple and very cool. It is from Blanc Magazine’s Online December 2018 Issue photographed by @bagaak and styled by @katrinaasmaa.

7. Maxmara is fast becoming my go-to recommendation for comfort, style and luxury. This is the fashion brand’s pink Teddy Bear. This particular shot was featured in @grazia_it and photographed by @andrewyee_photo with styling by @michelebagnara.
