It’s the Most Wonderful (and Busy!) Time of the Year

Wow, what a month! I know I said last month was crazy, but I was W-R-O-N-G. After my quick trip to Tokyo last month, I jetted off to Shanghai for the first time (see my travel diary here!), then I met my CINCTeam in Arizona for the first ever CINCRetreat! Then before I knew it, it was Thanksgiving at home with the family. All the while, the team and I have been prepping for the 2nd annual 12 Days of CHRIS-elle! (It starts tomorrow!  Whos excited?)

As busy as I get and as hectic as my schedule can be, I love taking the time at the end of the month to look back and revisit some of my favorite outfits, favorite products and everything in-between! It’s a great way to recap and remember what actually happened while getting ready for the month ahead. 

So keep scrolling to see some of my beauty and fashion picks from the month of November!

P.S.  While taking a deep, deep breath every day, lately my mantra been: Im so thankful to be this busy to make sure I keep my chill during all of this holiday madness!  Dont forget to breathe during the holiday season.  It can get really overwhelming for everyone but lets not forget what its really all about!
