Good morning! I hope you have had a wonderful holiday so far. Mine has been great. I found myself mildly allergic to the computer after arriving at my parent’s house and I vowed to take a few days off from email, blogs, and Jess LC. It was definitely a good decision. I now have more energy and ideas for the company and blog in 2010.
Today I’d like to share my two favorite Christmas gifts. Ironically neither of the presents were actually wrapped or laying beneath the Christmas tree. Sure, I got a lot of great new gifts like these great lamps, but this vintage bag and cocktail ring were both meaningful and perfect for me. The Gucci was originally a gift to my mom from my grandma. Since I’ve never seen my mom wear it, I’m know she hasn’t used it in many years. And the same goes for the topaz ring. She has never worn this piece which was originally my other grandma’s 20th wedding anniversary present.
So what does this mean? It means that my two favorite gifts were actually my mom’s exfoliations! This is a perfect example of why it is good to exfoliate on a regular basis. These two items have been sitting around in my mom’s closet for decades. Now that she’s passed them on to me, they will have an entirely new life and purpose, suited exactly for the way I live.
So I challenge you to find something that you have lying around, unused/unneeded/or unloved and pass it on to someone who will put it on the top of their holiday list.
