With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s time to start thinking about all the upcoming holiday parties and events! That calls for finding the right outfit, makeup, shoes, and of course, a hostess gift. Luckily, Brea Mall has all these party staples. To make your party shopping a breeze, I’m teaming up with the mall to share my favorite holiday party must-haves!
Holiday Makeup at Morphe
If you follow me on Instagram or YouTube, you’ve likely heard me talk about Morphe more times than I can count. I’m so impressed with the quality and affordability of their makeup products!
If you’re looking for new beauty products to up your holiday party makeup, stopping at Morphe at Brea Mall is a must. The James Charles palette is under $40 and offers a great color range that will allow you to create so many diverse looks. With 39 shadows, this palette is so worth it, especially considering the amazing quality of the shadows. Need new brushes to blend your eyeshadow? The Morphe x James Charles The Eye Brush Set is the way to go. It has every option you will need to create a beautiful holiday look.
For a little extra sparkle, don’t forget to check out the Eye Kandy glitters that Morphe offers. As for lip color, I recommend trying the Morphe Lip Kits. I love the Nude Pink Lip Trio and the Candy Red Lip Trio!
Holiday Party Outfit Ideas at H&M
If you’re looking for the perfect holiday party outfit, checking out H&M at Brea Mall is a must. While I tried on a number of items, I styled five outfits that I feel are perfect for any holiday party.
When I first saw the velvet green dress, I wasn’t sure I would like it, but once I tried it on, I LOVED it! It’s the perfect length and pairs beautifully with the green faux crocodile skin purse, also from H&M. Another great green option is the sequin short sleeve blouse, which I styled with black faux leather leggings.
If the party is more casual, pair the same leggings with a sweater like I did. If the party is more dressy, why not go all out with a silver sequin dress?! Also, I love the black dress with the gold dots on it (see top of blog post)! The oversized fit makes it very comfortable and you could totally wear it again for NYE! If it’s going to be a cold evening, you can’t go wrong with picking up a tan, faux fur jacket. I fell in love with the one featured below.
Holiday Heels at ALDO
No holiday outfit is complete without the perfect pair of shoes. Whether you’re looking for a classic pair of pumps, booties or something extra fun, ALDO has you covered!
While there are so many pairs to choose from, I selected five to share! You can never go wrong with a pair of patent red, pointed toe heels or a strappy black pair with rhinestone embellishments! Looking for booties? The black embellished ones featured below are so fun. I also love the leopard print, stiletto heel booties!
My favorite pair of shoes?! The sparkly cheetah print ones! They definitely make a statement, but I have no problem being even more “extra” than I already am during the holidays.
Pick Up a Holiday Hostess Gift at Sugarfina
Bringing a hostess gift to a holiday party is a must in my opinion. We all know how much work goes into hosting a party so why not show a little extra gratitude. One of my favorite spots at Brea Mall for picking up a hostess gift is Sugarfina! If you haven’t heard of Sugarfina, it is a luxury candy store offering gourmet, cocktail-inspired candies.
Not sure what to get? Pick up a Candy Bento Box! If there are certain candies that you know the hostess will love, you can design your own box. However, if you’re running low on time, grab a pre-designed Bento Box, such as the Aviation Gin 3-Piece Candy Bento Box. Another great option is to hand select a couple Candy Cubes. Since every Sugarfina purchase comes in a cute Sugarfina bag with tissue paper, this is another easy option.
Post-shopping Lunch at The Cheesecake Factory
After finding the perfect holiday outfit and hostess gift, I stopped by The Cheesecake Factory to grab a bite to eat. After starting the meal off with their irresistible bread, I tried a few different dishes. The Four Cheese Pasta was so delicious, per usual, and for some greens, I went with the Skinnylicious French Country Salad! Also, how good does the Bacon-Bacon Cheeseburger and mash potatoes look?! Everything was very yummy and the service was excellent!
