During the holidays, I feel like I am so stretched for time. My busy days get even busier and I find myself desperate to find a bit of extra time any way I can. Busy times like this I find myself pairing my daily beauty routine back to the basics. I turn to beauty products that can serve double duty and tend to look for things that are fast acting but effective. Most mornings my amazing husband starts the day with the kids by making breakfast and packing lunches. While he is busy downstairs starting the day, I am taking my shower and getting ready to great the day.

Appetizers are always hard for me especially around the holidays. All my favorite appetizers are either summer themed or they are hot which gets complicated if you have too many. When you have too many hot appetizers some will inevitably get cold while waiting for the others to be heated up.

I am constantly on my feet and on the go so I need comfortable and supportive shoes. As you know I also like style so these snakeskin sneakers from Vionic were calling my name. I had the pleasure of trying out some Vionic shoes a few years ago and was amazed at the supportive footbed they provide. Even knowing the brand I was skeptical these sneakers would have the same support. Upon looking at the style they did not look like they would have much support, they seemed to be a typical fashion sneaker with a flt footbed, I am happy to say I was wrong. The Vionic Torri Natural Snake Sneaker comes with a very supportive orthotic made with the Vionic  orthoheel technology that hugs and supports the foot. I can walk all day, carrying a kid, and feel amazing.
