The holiday season is officially here! Between work, family, shopping, and events, it’s easy to get overwhelmed during the holidays. Here are 5 of our favorite holiday must-have essentials. From self-care to beauty to style, we’ve got a little bit of everything. Oh, and did we mention they make great gifts, too?

1. Sorella Apothecary Serum

Cold weather, alcohol, and certain foods can take a toll on your skin this time of year. Boost your skincare regimen with a serum.

We love Sorella Apothecary’s collection of elixirs. Not sure which one to use? Just ask! Available at both La Belle Studio locations.

2. Blanket Scarf


We love shopping local, and Nicole J Boutique is one of our go-to-shopping spots! Owner Nicole Palmer and her staff make it feel like you’re shopping not only with a personal stylist, but your best friend!

NJB’s selection of blanket scarves are cozy and chic. They’re a great way to easily switch up your look (running from the office to your niece’s Christmas pageant). And they add a bit of flair to any ensemble. Choose from a variety of colors and patterns online and in-store.

3. Holiday Candles


Moderncity + Main’s Holiday Collection captures the essence of classic holiday scents. Get in a festive mood, or relax from a long stressful day by lighting one (or more) of these scrumptious candles.

The Holiday Collection includes Frosted Gingerbread, Caroling, Christmas Eve, Favorite Things, Oh Fudge, Mistletoe Magic, Winter Forest, Tree Farm, Deck the Halls, Sparkling Cranberry, and Santa’s Sleigh.

Can’t decide which one(s)? Grab a mix and match gift set.

4. Coffee Tumbler


For us, coffee is top of the list for self-care, especially during the hectic holidays. Sip your favorite caffeinated beverage in style with one of Starbucks adorable holiday tumblers. Available in several different colors and styles.

These tumblers are great for non-coffee drinkers, too. Simply swap coffee for water or your go-to drink. These make great gifts for teachers, best friends, Secret Santa, pretty much anyone on your list.

5. Eyeshadow Palette


Got your volume lashes? Now show off those lush lashes with a pop of color from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Eyeshadow Palette.

The collection features 14 different shades include metallics, neutrals, and cool-toned mattes. Mix and match eyeshadows for a variety of holiday party looks. And your eyes will be so pretty, no one will know you were up until midnight wrapping gifts.

5 Essential Summer Must-Haves

Memorial Day is right around the corner and that means so is summer!  We're sharing our TOP 5 MUST-HAVE PRODUCTS for the season. Our picks include summery candles, personal care, and even a dash of fashion.  

1. Moderncity + Main Candles

If you haven't discovered local Delaware gem Moderncity + Main yet, consider grabbing one of their natural soy candles to burn during the summer months. 

For a fruity summer vibe, you can't go wrong with Coconut Lime or Georgia Peach. Or go for the classic Sand + Surf for the ultimate beach candle.

Sizes include wax melts, 4 oz travel tins, and 9 oz glass jars. Shop online, or stop by La Belle Studio who also carries a select variety.

Not drinking enough water can make your skin appear dull and potentially increase oil production, resulting in breakouts. And in the summertime, you really need to stay on top of your water intake.

We love the 32 oz Bubba Water Mugs. They're available in a variety of colors and sizes, plus they're dishwasher-safe which makes cleaning them super easy. And since they're insulated to lock in cold, they're guaranteed to stay chill during the hottest of summer days. 

3. Davines Ol All in one milk

Davines Ol All in One Milk is legit magic in a bottle. It's one of our go-to products, especially for curly hair.  It not only controls frizz, it also adds shine and softness to your hair. 

No more worrying about summer humidity with this holy grail product in your beauty arsenal. 

4. Black Floppy Bow Hat

Protect your face from the sun with a chic Black Floppy Bow Hat from Nicole J Boutique in Middletown.

It will look adorable paired with sundresses and coverups, or outfits like this one.

Shopping Tip: Check out NJB Style Saturdays where owner Nicole will personally help you put together outfits. 

5. Coola Makeup Setting Spray With SPF 30 

Set and forget makeup meltdowns with Coola Makeup Setting Spray With SPF 30.

This spray sets makeup and protects the skin from harmful UV rays. It also soothes with cucumber and aloe vera extracts, plus uses hyaluronic acid to bind moisture to rehydrate skin. 

Like all products that incorporate skincare properties, be sure to do a skin patch test first to avoid any potential reactions. If you experience irritation, try Urban Decay's All Nighter, another fantastic makeup setting spray. Just be sure to still apply sunscreen on your face (and allover your body), too!
