Indulgent Beauty: Before Those Resolutions Kick-In

Before you begin all the requisite self-assesment, gym-membership-purchases, calorie restrictions, and spending freezes that the new year entails, allow yourself one last "hurrah" of self-indulgence. Below is a list of my top four ways to indulge before reality sets in (pick your poison):

1.) Eat: Barefoot Contessa's Panettone Bread Pudding. (Because you thought panettone could never be delicious, and Ina proved you wrong! This is the perfect midnight snack.

2.) Lounge: Pom Pom Slippers in Baby Blue from Aspinal of London. (You will feel as if you are walking on a cloud, and they keep your feet cozy).

3.) Drink: Egg Nog from the grocery store warmed up on the stove with vanilla bean (scraped from the pod) and a candy cane to stir it. Make sure that you add a generous splash of amaretto after heating.

4.) Beautify: Chanel Precision Sublimage Essential Regenerating Eye Cream. (It's the only one that really works, and the eyes are the first thing that reveal your age).

Happy New Year!!

Is the Chanel product mostly for puffiness, or does it reduce under-eye circles as well? I'm still searching for the perfect cure for my dark circles.

Though it does reduce moderate dark circles, for serious dark circles I would recommend Hylexin. It's the only product that really eradicates them.
