I'm pretty tired this week, how about you? Over here at Marie Claire, we're in the home stretch of planning the cover shoot for our January digital issue (stay tuned, I promise it's a good one!), putting the finishing touches on our fave gift guides, and trying to plan ahead for the next few weeks so we can all take some much-needed time off.
My personal calendar has also been extra busy this past week thanks to so many hard-to-say-no-to invites for holiday get-togethers and festive celebrations. All that translates to wanting to melt into my couch by the end of this week in a cozy pair of sweats (may I recommend some fleecey soft joggers?) and talking to no one except my TV (are we watching And Just Like That, Y/N?). So my recs this week consistent of my self-care picks, stress-free gift buying guides, and a dream escape itinerary. December is a long (wonderful! merry! full of good cheer and family and friends!) slog. Take care of yourself now so you still have the energy to ring in 2022—even if it's from your couch! —Sally

It’s almost 2022, and we’re still dressing nicely exclusively from the waist up. While some people opt for a pair of black leggings to coordinate with their nicest Zoom-ready tops, I tend to go for a pair of sweatpants—but only if they’re lined with fleece. But it seems that a few of my most favorite pairs haven’t exactly been holding up so well due to the constant wear over the last 12 months. So, I rounded up a definitive list of all the best pairs of fleece-lined sweatpants that you can buy now and wear until you can step outside without needing 10 different layers once again.
Let’s face it: Holiday gift shopping can be a downright overwhelming pursuit. If the mere thought of figuring out the right gift for every person on your list—particularly those who are very hard to buy for—triggers heart palpitations, fear no more. Months of research went into putting together this year’s list of fail-safe gifts that work for everyone.

I was recently introduced to this natural skincare line, which features a range of products formulated from plant and mineral sources, and was instantly hooked. While I loved the gentle cleanser and rich face oil I tried, it was LINNÉ's newest product, the REVIVE eye emulsion, that had me immediately hitting add to cart. You can instantly feel the cooling, hydrating effects and see the brightening results, but it was how this product depuffed my under eye bags (always a problem for me, but especially during this time of year when I'm trying juggle end of year projects at work, extra social commitments, and new episodes of the Great British Bake Off: Holiday Editon) the next day that had me hooked.
