The holidays are here and that means it’s time for feasting, gift giving, and holiday parties! And what better way to celebrate than with cocktails and goodies from our friends at Babbleboxx? This year we discovered an array of products (and gift ideas) from 23andMe, Algenist, Perfumania, Grande Lash, Tea Forte, Badgley Mischka, Sabon, Match.com, and more. Serving up tasty festive cocktails for the evening was Splash Mixers, Owl’s Brew, and Cinzano Prosecco while Edible Arrangements and MyMo Mochi kept the chocolate covered strawberries and ice cream coming.
Thank you for sponsoring this post, Babbleboxx!

Another one of our favorite beauty brands, Grande Cosmetics, was also in attendance. If you saw our previous coverage on Grande Cosmetics, you know we’re huge fans of their GrandeLASH-MD and GrandeBROW serums which both promote longer, thicker lashes and brows. These lash and brow serums were one of the first to market before everyone started doing growth serums and they actually work! Grande was also demonstrating their GrandeLIPS lip plumping glosses which are fantastic. You can shop all Grande products at www.grandecosmetics.com.
