Weekend Roundup - Christmas Day, December 25

Can you believe it? It's Christmas! Even though we all have different ways of celebrating the holiday, and different reasons, we come together with friends and family today to remember our shared values of peace, love, and joy. May your holiday shine!

I hope Santa brought you some beauty goodies! He left some for me, including a fantabulous CREED candle! It's Cocktail de Pivoines, or "cocktail of peonies." It has top notes of Italian lemon and heart notes of peony, ylang ylang, and Indian jasmine. A sweet friend knew I really wanted it. It's going to smell good here during January. The scent permeates a room with flowers, even unlit.

We can't skip our Weekend Roundup, holiday or not! Our beauty blogging friends were busy this week, like Santa's elves, helping you find the best of the best. Check out our favorite features from the last week.

Three of us were smitten with Chanel's Ombres Perlées de Chanel for Spring 2011. Check out Café Makeup for Amy's review, The Beauty Look Book for Sabrina's review, and Best Things in Beauty for my review. Think we love it? Get a gift card for Christmas? This could be your purchase - treat yourself! We reviewed other products from Chanel's spring collection, so make sure to scroll for Chanel when you visit.

Kari found a makeup primer that can be used before or after your makeup application. Intrigued? Find out more about Dior's Crystal Nude Primer at Fab over Forty.

Want a golden glow for New Year's Eve? It's not too late to pick up Guerlain's L'Or Makeup Base. Find out why you need it from Gaia at The Non-Blonde. Her endorsement is as good as Oprah's!

Jennifer was hoping for a treat in her stocking: Philosophy's Hope in a Jar, recently featured in Oprah’s “Ultimate Favorite Things." Read Jennifer's review at BeautyXposé.

Benefit granted two Christmas wishes for Laurie: 1) they gave her an awesome spray tan, and 2) a new boxed blush, Bella Bamba! Benefit’s newest face powder brings something new to the Benefit line-up, with promises of a 3-D brightening effect. Read all about it at Product Girl.

Kelly proved she's game for anything at Gouldylox Reviews. Water Marbling isn't for everyone, but if you find yourself snowed in, it's a fun look to try.

Jane got in the Christmas spirit at Daly Beauty. Head over to find out what's ringing her bells for the holidays.

Find out why Debbi was knocked over by a Dior advertisement from 2007 - still airing, still alluring. When you visit DivaDebbi, let her know if you think Charlize Theron knocked it out of the park for Dior.

Was Santa good to you? Hope you enjoy your holiday!

A Creed candle? With Creed jasmine? *faints*

It sounds absolutely gorgeous! I have been a long time fan of the L'Artisan Parfumeur candles but somehow the Creed ones flew under my radar! What a perfect gift.
