Buon Natale

It keeps on getting colder in South Texas. With the sound of the cold wind, and the low temperatures, today was a joyful reminder that Christmas is just around the corner. Yes, people, the holiday
season is here! 

Last year, right around this time, my gifts were all wrapped up and under the three. This year, I have been taking my time getting everything ready. There are some days when the last thing you
want to do is rush. After all, our whole world moves at a fast pace, but what are we racing toward? Can we slow things down a bit in this perpetually rushed society? 

We often hear people say that there is not enough time in one day, and how they are super busy and stressed out. Can we just be like turtles? I read that the average life span of an American box turtle is 123 years. So, during this holiday season, why not try slow down and program our internal gears to go at a low speed? I’m sure our minds and bodies will be thankful for that.

Slowing down helps us be in the moment. It helps us take in the world around us! You can read more on how to stay Zen during this beautiful season in my next article that will be out right before Christmas on Thrive Global. Here is how I stay zen:

Now, switching gears, let me send a big “thank you” to Santa for coming early this year. Last night, our postman delivered a huge box. When I opened it, I found a beautiful Calvin Klein purse. It is very
classy and breathtaking up close! My husband Patrick loves to surprise me, and this year he did it again.

I know. I hear you! It’s not Christmas yet, but can a girl get an early Christmas gift from her husband? There are more gifts heading my way. I must have been good this year.

A soon as I have some free time, I will do a review on this cream. I love the way Claudio looks in these pictures.

Thank you for reading this post. Share below how you are managing to keep your stress level low during the holidays. 

I’m currently working on making my blog a community, a place where all of you ladies can share what’s on your minds. We all live on the same planet, and we all struggle with the same issues. So, here we go! Here is your chance to share your joy, disappointment, makeup tips, best places to shop online, how you overcame a recent obstacle, what makes you happy, and what drives you insane.

Also, as I have been mentioning, I’m planning on doing a giveaway. Be sure to leave a comment below in order to qualify for my giveaway. I will add more about the requirements later. For now, follow me on my open IG page at @ionunzia (I will check ;)) and comment on my latest blog post.
