Holiday Tips from the Experts #PGFiestas

The holidays are upon us it's a wonderful time and it can be quite hectic this time of year. With rushing to gifts to get the house ready for family and freinds to come over. Especially getting everything decorated in time and having your holiday menu ready. Last month i had the pleasure of participating in a webinar with celebrity stylist Robert Verdi and home entertainment expert Katie Lee. They are both working with P&G to share some of their favorite products this holiday season with us. I got so many great tips and advice from them it was truly a great experience. 

Robert Verdi:

He is a leading lifestyle expert, celebrity stylist and television personality and the “goto” style guru for A-listers like Eva Longoria, Bethenny Frankel, Hugh Jackman, and Mariska Hargitay. Verdi is the sole style expert to bridge three major categories: fashion, entertaining and home design. I was so excited to listen to what he has to say about getting ready for the holidays on the P&G Holiday Webinar. Even though it was a short webnair he gave out so much information and i learned so much. Follow Robert on twitter at @RobertVerdi.

Some of Robert Verdi’s tips included:
The  main things he touched on is the basics you need in your wardrobe, he said the pieces you should always have is of course that Little black dress, a Sexy fitted tuxedo jacket which you can pair with a white shirt, heels, and a pair of jeans or if you prefer a pencil skirt. He also suggested to get items you can layer with other pieces like a white shirt it's an easy backdrop for everything. To be camera ready this holiday you should wear a bit of red it photographs very well! During the webinar i asked Robert how can you wear skinny jeans without looking weird. He actually said Petite and Tall girls who have curves wear skinny jeans best.  He let us know that frizzy hair is a by product of dry hair so P&G Herbal Essences Hello to Hydration would be perfect to quench your thirsty locks.
