Health & Beauty
Soothing & sweet
Pamper yourself with this range of bath and beauty products by Lollia, found at Classic Trends at Depot Square in Arlington. The soaps are $12.50, and the soap dish is $20.
Smooth the holiday stress right off your face with this rejuvenating, vitamin-enriched eye serum from Heather. Caffeine + vitamins A & C = an undereye miracle worker. Try it for $39.
Form meets function with this nifty and oh-so-handy FlipBelt from Breakaway Running. At $26, it holds everything you need (including your iPhone 6s) while exercising outdoors, and it even flips for comfort.
Pamper your skin
This eucalyptus and lavender sugar scrub is handmade inside the shop at beauty, brow and bridal boutique Gia Marina. Pick up a jar for $25 and let the pampering begin.
Home & Garden
This birdcage-style pendant light is like a breath of fresh air. Hang it in a sunroom to brighten up every morning … the cheery aqua color is fun and soothing all at once. Buy it for $225 at Celeste.
Count your blessings
January is the perfect time to reflect on the good things in your life. This inspirational piece by artist Kristi Hall is small in size (6-inch square) but large in heart. Find it for $45 at Palladio Interiors.
In the Pink
The color experts at Pantone picked the dual hues of Serenity and Rose Quartz as 2016’s color of the year, rightfully noting that today’s consumers are seeking “mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern-day stresses.” Bring soft, soothing rose tones into your home with this custom pillow ($215), vases ($145 each) or Designers Guild candle ($45) from Jolie Maison.
Take ’em anywhere
Planning a winter weekend cabin getaway with girlfriends? (If not, you really should.) Be sure to pack these sturdy and totally essential stainless steel martini glasses ($12.95 each) from Outdoors Inc.! Perfect for that cosmo around the campfire or snuggled up next to a cozy fireplace. A wine variety is available for $13.95.
And, finally, something yummy
These regionally produced jellies, salsas and more are canned just for S.Y. Wilson & Co., and at $10 a jar, they’re worth a try. Find classic and unique concoctions including corn relish, chow chow and the highly intriguing “frog jam.”
Fashion & Jewelry
Start 2016 in style by treating yourself to a fun and fashion-forward necklace from Kendra Scott Jewelry, which recently arrived in Germantown. Starting with the Jayce amulet and moving up, these layered beauties cost $120, $65 and $60, respectively.
Need a place to store the new jewelry you got for Christmas? Try this adorable bracelet and ring “nest” ($10) from, fittingly, The Pink Nest. While you’re at it, go ahead and snag the gold beaded bracelet, $32.
