When the holiday season is in full bloom, you'll feel it. Your social calendar is packed to the brim. Catching hands with your frenemy at a Christmas soiree (urgh) is inevitable, and reading online gift guides will be integrated as part of your weekend routine (yay!). While the spirit of the season is an invitation to be selfless, you can't forget the most important person in your life either. You.

We're taking a hint from Samantha Jones on this one. Just like how she intended to treat herself to a giant diamond ring, we're extending the same courtesy to you, because a stressful day at the office, an unpleasant breakup, a Tuesday, are fine reasons to pamper yourself over the weekend. Nip those post-weekend blues in the bud. The way we see it, nothing cures a case of the "blahs" quite like a luxurious facial or even a decorative makeup box.

TREAT #1: A DEEP CLEANSE
Given that the holidays, to us, include tons of champagne cocktails (then morning macchiatos to combat the aftermath of said cocktails), maintaining a healthy complexion isn't the smoothest task. Take some time over the weekend with this facial cleansing brush, as it is designed to minimise the appearance of blemishes while effectively addressing concerns related to ageing skin. There are four varieties to tailor to your skin type: normal, combination, oily and sensitive.

Available online.

TREAT #2: A FACIAL AT THE LA PRAIRIE FACIAL CABIN
Pamper your skin with La Prairie's Signature Skin Caviar Facial, and get access to their vanity table stocked with La Prairie's top makeup and skincare products. Sure, this will dent your wallet some, but it's well-worth the royalty treatment before the upcoming holiday stressors of increased workload and party hosting slap you in the face.   

Make an appointment at Takashimaya Shopping Centre.

TREAT #3: POP THE DIPTYQUE ADVENT CALENDAR 
Not feeling your most fab? You'd be surprised how far the little pleasures in life can take your mood. Diptyque's advent calendar brings in 25 iconic products in a fun discovery format to make every day a treat. Heck, open the one slated for tomorrow. And the one after that. And after that. And after that. We won't tell.

Available at Takashimaya Shopping Centre.

TREAT #4: DECORATE YOUR VANITY
Ever heard of that old saying, "Ask and you shall receive?" Les Merveilleuses Ladurée just upped the ante on that by offering up a dainty and whimsically designed makeup box. If you're anything like Monica Gellar and rearranging the contents of your drawer is a soothing activity to you, consider this to house your smorgasbord of makeup. 

Available at Takashimaya Shopping Centre.
