You guys know I've been on a beauty and skincare kick. I shared a few of my favorite essentials here previously. Maybe it's the whole aging thing, but I'm eagerly trying new products to find what's best for my skin. When the cosmetics brand OROGOLD reached out, I jumped at the chance to try a few of their products. I've moisturized every day of my life since I was a pre-teen but have yet to find one that is a keeper. Until I find the one, I thought it would be good to test out the 24K Vitamin Booster Facial Serum for its brightening effects. I've been using it before moisturizing for a few days and notice a more dewey complexion and my skin feels more fresh! I'll test out the cleanser and mask and report back with my results. In the meantime, please share your beauty routines and musts. This girl and her face is needing some serious R&R.
Hey, hey, heyyyyyy. Hope your Thanksgiving was one for the books! Mine was filled to the brim with the best F's: food, family, and football. This year, in efforts of just living a littler lighter I promised to not be so much of a scrooge about buying gifts. I actually started my Christmas shopping back in August. When I say 'I', I actually mean my awesome sister who did the shopping for me. When it comes to gift giving I humbly admit defeat and gave her a budget to work with for all the little ones on my list. STRESS RELIEVED. So all that's left are little gifts for my favorites! And that can't be so bad, right? Especially when the sales are this good. Here's my round-up of Black Friday's best sales, including the ASOS black midi skirt pictured. If there's any style of skirt to invest in, it's the midi skirt. Hides all the bad stuff, embraces the good, and shows just enough skin. Paired with a simple top and a duster coat and you have yourself a polished holiday look. Happy shopping!

We've been publishing a slew of holiday content lately on The Everygirl. I can get a bit overwhelmed managing several freelance roles that I forget I should share some of my work here! For Thanksgiving, I was tasked with creating leftover ideas for the day after Thanksgiving. There's nothing more tiring than having to bounce right back into the kitchen, so I figured why not toss all the leftovers together for a quick ten minute turkey salad sandwich? All that's needed is a quick run to the market for alfalfa sprouts and pretzel buns and you're golden. Hope you enjoy this as much as my family do!
10-Minute Turkey Salad Sandwiches
1 lb. cooked and chopped turkey
1/2 c. dried cranberries
1/2 c. chopped pecans
3 tbsp. chopped parsley
1/2 c. good mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
4-6 mini pretzel buns, toasted
1. Toss all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until evenly combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
2. To assemble, cut pretzel buns in half and spread top layer with Dijon mustard. Scoop turkey salad on the lower bun and top with alfalfa sprouts. This recipe yields about 6-8 mini sandwiches.
