Amid the crazy party schedule, year-end office wrap-up and endless gift lists to check off, it’s important to pencil in some “me” time. We’ve tapped members of Team Zoe to share how they’ll indulge this season. From a decadent dinner date to a relaxing evening at home with a good book, read on to see how 6 editors look after themselves during the busiest time of the year.
Decadent Dinner Date
"I love getting dressed up during the holidays for a decadent dinner. I usually go for an LBD with an interesting detail like lace or beading, monochromatic ankle booties, a swipe of red lip gloss and a spritz of Viva La Juicy perfume on my way out the door."
— Shannon Nash, Fashion & Beauty Editor
At-Home Spa Day
"One of my favorite things to do on a day off is treat myself to an at-home spa day. I love nothing more than throwing on a cozy robe, applying a face mask, soaking my feet and watching a chick flick with a glass of wine. Trust me, it's the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon."
—Stephanie Montes, Beauty Editor
Coffee Shop Date For One
"There's no better place to get some alone time than my favorite coffee shop. I love to sit back and people-watch, drink a huge cup of coffee and snap some holiday inspiration for my Instagram."
—Lauren Eggertsen, Editorial Assistant
Focus On Fitness
"I'm essentially glued to my laptop and iPhone 24/7, so one of the most indulgent things in the world is to disconnect for an hour or so while I work out. Whether it's yoga, boxing or a run around the reservoir, breaking a sweat helps me clear my head and turn the focus internally."
—Jaclyn Decell, Social Media Manager
Being A Book Worm
"Donning the coziest sweats I can find and curling up with a cup of tea and a good book (or Apple TV remote) under a blanket on the couch is my idea of heaven. Extra points if it's by the fire."
—Nicky Deam, Editorial Director
Friends & Food
"The perfect way to unwind from a busy week involves 2 main f’s: food and friends. A leisurely Saturday brunch filled with plenty of girl talk followed by a (potentially mimosa-fueled) shopping excursion is my kind of day."
—Kristi Mikesky, Fashion & Beauty Editor
