The Ultimate Holiday Party Survival Guide

With all the holiday rush and last minute shopping – a lot of us tend to forget about the upcoming festivities, events as well as celebrations. Not the date, but the preparation. We focus all our energy finding the right products, budget-friendly finds, as well as an outfit that we neglect our possible personal needs. We all know mishaps can happen. No one is ever “that” lucky!

To avoid such situation, I have rounded up my favorite tips for the ultimate holiday party survival guide. Ready to ace your holiday celebrations? Let’s get started then!

The Ultimate Holiday Party Survival Guide

1. Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant – with all the running around, we have to stay fresh and on point at all times! No one wants to hang with a funky smelling pal – even if you’re friends. Plus, we all know that first impression, always last! Dove dry spray antiperspirant goes on “instantly” dry and provides an amazing 48 hours of odor and wetness protection. To top that it also cares for our skin! My personal favorite is “clear tone” skin renew that helps restore skin to its natural tone.

Deodorant is a major key that plays a major role in every woman’s daily beauty and skincare routine. Making it a huge importance to use a product and brand that you can trust to stay fresh and totally confident throughout the festive holiday season. With Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant, you can simply #ShakeSprayGo and have the assurance that it can keep up with any on-the-go lifestyle. If you haven’t yet, I’m Inviting you to try Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant for yourself and experience the difference!

2. Safety Pin – trust me, this little tool is an instant life saver for any embarrassing moments. I’ve had instances where my zipper or fly ends up malfunctioning – can you imagine the disaster waiting to happen? I’ve gotten away luckily at a few times for having either a jacket over a faulty dress closure or a long top over a messed up jeans. Since then I never leave without at least a piece or two of safety pins inside my purse.

3. Blotting Oil – ditch the oily, messy shine away. The only thing that you would want to sparkle is your dress and your heels. Make your makeup stand out for the right reason – highlighter, contour, and coverage. Don’t be the gal who looks like an oily mess.

4. Nail File – I traveled near and far. Conquered quite a distance. You know what always happens? A disastrously broken nail. That’s right. Without a nail file in tow, I have no choice but to wait until I get home to fix the problem. Often than not I also end up scratching myself or pull a thread on my clothes. Never again.

5. Stain Remover – what can be more tragic than a stain that will ruin the rest of the night? So I’ve decided to pack a stain remover solution on a travel sized spray bottle. That way, no matter what happens I can be sure that everything will be alright. At the end of the day, I can eat, drink and be merry with no worries.

By following these pointers, you can be sure to survive the holidays without a fuss. Enjoy the holidays and when you get a chance, let me know what you think!

    I have been using Dove products for years and have always been VERY happy with them. I have sensitive skin and it’s the only brand that doesn’t irritate my skin.

    This is a great tip list! You don’t always think of having these things on hand until you need them. I will definitely keep this list in mind for my next Holiday Party!

  • Erin Nichols

    I would have never thought of a nail file or a safety pin, but you make excellent points. I can’t count the number of times I have been an hour or two away from home and broke a nail that left me with a sharp, witch finger. Great tips!

  • Tara Holland

    I love the idea of a dry spray being a quick way to help you get ready and out the door without leaving residue.

  • The Wandereuse

    This was such an amazing party survival guide! Go safety pins! I had one of these situations happen to me but luckily I was partying at a hotel so it was quite easy to find one, but now I always carry one with me just in case 🙂

    I love the Dove anti-perspirants! Their products are so gentle and don’t irritate my skin at all, whereas a lot of other skincare brands tend to irritate my eczema 🙂
