The Cheryl Shops holiday gift guide 2022

I almost started this post with "how is it time for the holidays already?" but as someone who loves this time of year, let me rephrase that: it's time for the holidays already! I am certainly feeling the spirit, especially since this year is (knock on wood) looking like it will be the first normal one since the you-know-what. I am really excited about everything I'm featuring this year, so without further ado, let's dive into my holiday gift guide for 2022! 

An honest review of Spanx ankle backseam skinny pants

Depending on who you ask, skinny pants are either dead or totally going strong; while I am definitely embracing the new loose fits, I still have skinnies in my regular rotation. Now that the weather is cooler, I've found myself wearing them even more often, because they just go so well with big, cozy sweaters (which definitely aren't going anywhere). And since I know you love my Spanx reviews, I decided to give the full honest review treatment to my most-worn pair of the bunch, the Spanx ankle backseam skinny pant. Spanx sent these pants to me for free, but as always, this post contains my 100% honest and unfiltered opinion. 

9 favorites from the Sephora sale (and what I'm buying)

 If you're thinking, "Wow, Cheryl, you're posting early this week," you are correct. And that's because the Sephora Beauty Insider sale has come early this year. Early access for Rouge started Friday, today is the lucky day for VIBs like me (yay!), and the remaining Beauty Insiders get to shop starting Thursday. Sephora Collection is 30% off for everyone, and the entire thing goes through Monday, 11/7. And while I'm no longer working for Sephora, I still have a bunch of new favorite products to tell you about, plus a few more that I'm planning to buy. Read on for my recommendations!
