Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! xoxo- AB

Merry Christmas from ABDGood morning and happy Friday, friends!! It’s here!! Today is our last day in the studio for 2014 and it feels MAGICAL! Lucy and I will be handing out gifts, sipping homemade hot cocoa, and watching black and white Christmas movies… you know, all of the Elf-like activities!

Thank you to all of you for making this year such a fun one; we absolutely LOVE what we do around here, and get excited about our mission of making your day just a bit brighter… and let me tell you, 2015? It’s going to be BRIGHT!!! I hope you enjoy the holidays with your family and friends… we will be thinking of you!

Also, don’t worry! I know you were concerned about what to do with all that cash Santa will bring you… the ABD shop will be open for business over the next few weeks!

We won’t be shipping on December 24-25 or December 31-January 1 otherwise, business as usual!

Oh, and of course I’ll be posting adorable holiday photos over on our instagram, you are not going to miss that! We will see you on January 5th!

Merry Christmas, friends!

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  -Isaiah 9:6

ABD’s Fancy Friends: Olive + Piper

Today’s Fancy Friends post is all about this very sparkly necklace from Olive + Piper! First off, can we just talk about how most “fashion” jewelry feels like something you would find in the dollar bin at Target?! Seriously, most of the pretty sparkly stuff will just about fall apart if you look at it wrong, but not Olive + Piper. Color me impressed! This necklace they sent me is the real deal! It’s heavy and great quality… I loved it so much I wore it to Thanksgiving dinner and I might just break it out again on Christmas Eve! All I can say is, if you didn’t know about Olive + Piper before this post, you do now… and you are welcome! ;)

P.S. If you think we may be besties and we just haven’t met yet…feel free to shoot us an e-mail and fill us in on what we are missing!

Primping with ABD : The Holiday Lip

Okay, so for today’s “Primping with ABD” post, I wanted to share with you three of my favorite festive holiday lipsticks! I wear all of these all the time. I am one of those people who thinks that going to the grocery store is enough reason for a red lip, so if I were you I would get all three of these, because trust me… they will come in handy!!

1. Channel – Rouge Allure Gloss in 19Pirate (it has a glossy/lipstick feel and last all day with a color that is intense!)

2. M.A.C – Ruby Woo (it’s a mat red-orange lipstick and I LOVE it!!!)

3. Revlon- Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fuchsia Fusion (this is FUCHSIA, high intense color, and shiny… it’s perfect!)

What’s Your ABD? + Giveaway!

Whats your ABD Okay, so, a few weeks ago I had this idea while I was making myself a cup of coffee, and to be honest, it felt brilliant! I shared said idea with #iloveteamABD and they all agreed (obviously, I pay them to say that… but that’s besides the point!), so we got to work! While making that cup of coffee a few weeks ago I realized that I gravitate towards certain ABD products and I thought, maybe you guys do too! So I thought it would be fun to create a little “What’s Your ABD?” quiz (you know, like the ones in the magazines!) to find out what kind of ABD girl you are! Also, beacuse I’m all in the Christmas Spirit and everything, I thought it would be fun to give away a few “answers” to these quizzes!! So fun right?! I know.

Here’s what you have to do to take the quiz and enter the giveaway!!

1. Download and P-R-I-N-T the “What’s Your ABD” quiz HERE.

2. Fill out the quiz!

3. Instagram, Facebook, and (or) tweet your finished quiz using the hashtag —> #whatsyourABD

4. Cross your fingers and toes!!!

We will select a handful of winners and send them their ABD, so make it good friends!!
