Jack Frost may be nipping at your nose, but that doesn’t mean your head has to be cold! Stay warm and stylish in an adorable knit beanie adorned with a big, fluffy pompom or two. Some trendy brands you’ll be seeing everywhere this season include Love Your Melon, a charity benefiting cancer patients, and CC, which has very affordable prices.

Is there anything better than your favorite makeup brand bundling their most popular products together in one special edition, holiday-themed package? Look out for exclusive, limited edition beauty products as well as “free gifts” that many stores give out with qualifying purchases during the holidays. This year, NYX even has a lip color advent calendar, so your beauty routine can get into the holiday spirit as well!

Remember tuning in to watch the 25 Days of Christmas on ABC Family (now Freeform) for all those musical Christmas specials? There’s nothing better than singing along to The Year Without a Santa Claus, Frosty the Snowman, and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer to get into the holiday spirit!

There’s just something about this time of year that makes wearing and using sparkly things suddenly more socially acceptable than normal. Anything with sequins or glitter just seems so festive!
