How to Look and Feel Festive Every Day of the Season

Starting with Thanksgiving and leading all the way to New Year’s Day, I like to give an air of festivity to what I wear every single day.  I also like to wear Frankincense and Myrrh essential oil during the holiday season.  Why don’t you try adding holiday colors, bling and scents every day of the season?  It creates a joyful mood.
