Beauty Brains: “Sarah Bellum can’t wait for Santa to bring her the new small barrel InStyler (leopard print version) so she can start wearing her hair curly; The Right Brain is really excited to see if the new Colgate Optic White toothpaste will remove red wine stains from all those holiday cocktail parties; and the Left Brain will be looking at peer-reviewed scientific journals trying to find proof that Santa Claus doesn’t really exist. (What a Grinch!) Cheers! Right Brain” https://www.twitter.com/thebeautybrains
Siobhan O’Connor: “I’m going to split my time between Montreal, where I’m from, and Brooklyn, where I’ve lived for 10 years. Both are home to me, but I am especially excited to head up north for a few days. Montreal is always so cold and snowy around Christmas, which is just how I like it–and it’ll be great to see my parents, my brother, my sister in law and my two beautiful twin nieces. I also love New York when it empties out, so I’m excited to come back here for a few days, too!” https://www.twitter.com/NoDirtyLooks
Alexandra Spunt: We’re going to rest, eat, play in the snow, and hang with family and friends in our hometown of Montreal. Hopefully we’ll get to have a little quality time together too, since we’re usually on opposite coasts! https://www.twitter.com/@NoDirtyLooks
Vanessa Gualy: “I’ll be enjoying the holidays with all the good stuff in life- family, friends and delicious food!” (Co-Founder)https://www.twitter.com/nailinghwood
Tameka Linnell: Usually, we head out to Colorado to ski for the holidays, but this year we’ve decided to take a break from the hectic holiday travel and stay put in sunny South Florida. (not the worst place to spend the holiday…just ask the snow birds who flock down here from up north!)
My plans are pretty simple. I want to spend unadulterated time with my two beautiful kids and my amazing husband. I’m excited to slow down my pace and just relax and listen to the kids run around the house, go to the beach, go for bike rides without having to check my e-mail every minute or hop on a call. Lately, I’ve been going through cooking magazines dog-earring pages of great holiday recipes to make during the holiday break. I’m a working mom, so it’s fun to put the hat on of the mom in the kitchen cooking amazing meals. (I do cook most every night, but only meals that take 30 min, MAX!) This holiday season, I want my house to smell like my house did when I was a kid. Yummy aromas wafting from the kitchen. The smell of things roasting or cookies and cakes baking. I’m going to watch the Dora Explorer special on Sunday evening with my daughter who is completely enamored with Dora:-) I’m going to go to read 5 chapters to my son at night instead of the two that we usually only have time for because of the mad bedtime routine rush.
I’m also going to take time to do things for myself. Maybe get a massage AND a pedicure. I’m going to go paddle boarding with my husband. I’m going to go for a run at 10AM instead of 5:30AM. You get the point. This holiday season, I don’t just want to think about things that are important, I want to live out all those experiences with my loved ones. I’m excited to just slow down and re-connect and re-charge. Oh, and one last thing. My husband thinks I’m crazy, but I’m REALLY looking forward to taking more silly pics with my new instant camera:-) https://www.twitter.com/ItsJOON
Ruth Crilly: (New Year’s Eve) I shall be watching over Ted the kitten, I should think – he’s too small to leave alone so we will no doubt be warm and cosy by the fire! https://www.twitter.com/modelrecommends
Dr. Adrienne Denese: “I have a very important show on QVC right after Xmas on Dec 28th at 4am. Therefore I will not travel anywhere over the holidays to make sure that I do not catch a cold, do not catch the flu, etc. before this very important occasion. So I will be grounded in a way. I will be studying for the shows diligently over Xmas. It is not much fun but we all have to make sacrifices.” https://www.twitter.com/DrDenese
Ms. Furless, from Furless Makeup Brushes & Accessories, would like to wish everyone a very lovely Christmas! https://twitter.com/_FURLESS_
Melissa Croland: I will be spinning the dreidel and lighting Hanukkah candles with my wonderful boyfriend. After the Festival of Lights comes to an end, we will be heading to Fess Parker Winery to visit their tasting room, spa and a gallop around the vineyard on horseback New Year’s Day. I will definitely be ringing in 2012 wearing Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics! https://www.twitter.com/ybcosmetics
Indie Lee: “We are spending the holidays at home with our family and friends. We’ve hosted this for the past 8 years. It’s basically like a big open house. I come from a mix religious background, which is awesome and this year Hanukah and Christmas overlap. I’m excited to light the menorah at our holiday party with our family and friends. This year we decided not to spend that much time in the kitchen (OK I never really did) and we are continuing with the Hors d’oeuvres theme. Everyone loves and eats the apps and then never the big meal – so let’s just skip the big meal and eat all the fun stuff.
Gifts this year is also very cool…We all have enough stuff, so many people have nothing. So we are giving the gift of giving. We are buying gift cards for various denominations that the recipient can log on to the website and decide which charity they feel passionate about and can go to. It’s a win win. Brilliant! I feel so good about this choice.
My kids on the other hand have decided that rather then gifts this year, we are taking a family trip to Disney and Harry Potter world at Universal.” https://twitter.com/Indie_Lee

And I’ll be wearing my Winks at the holiday parties and on NYE at the beach!” https://www.twitter.com/GeorgieBeauty
Megan Allen: “I can’t wait to have a hot toddy by the fire with friends and family! That is after a full day of shopping, of course! My sister and I also have a tradition of delivering Santa gifts to a family in need on Christmas Eve, which is what it’s all about. That is always the highlight of our holiday.” https://www.twitter.com/GeorgieBeauty
N.K. (She’s so famous, she doesn’t need to give out any more info. than her initials!) I love to drive around with my 90 lb. puppy and check out those disconcertingly tasteful lights before parking on Montana Avenue in the tony neighbourhood of Brentwood and watch the theatrical tidings of streetside caroling. It’s going to be a quiet, contemplative holiday season set to some brassy, swinging holiday music as I gear up for some major changes in 2012. The revelry of solitude will be punctuated by mid morning jaunts to my local shelter, where I always hand out good tokens of cheer to spread the good karma forward https://www.twitter.com/beautyhuile
Kim Paschen: I am headed to Wisconsin to visit family for 5 days. I’ll also be going to the Packers-Bears football game on the eve of Christmas Day! http://www.twitter.com/LeapingBunny

Renee Lynn Smith: My plans for the holidays will be pretty calm. I will be focusing on the finer things in life. Catching up with friends and family and exploring the city that I live in. I love NYC this time of year. It has such a magical vibe. During the year my job is so hectic with all the traveling I do, that this is the time of year that I treasure the most. Its nice to be home, I definitely have plans to see the movie “My week with Marilyn”. Unfortunately I don’t have any New Year’s plans yet but I am definitely looking forward to the year a head. Bare Escentuals will be having one of our biggest skin care launches yet. In January we will be releasing our new Active Cell Renewal Serum. I can’t even begin to explain how amazing my skin felt after trying this. We will be having several events surrounding this launch in the beginning of January. Stay tuned! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Renee-Lynn-Smith-NYC-MAKE-UP-Artist/218363144859471
