Here's What Our Camille Rose Creative Team Is Thankful For

Happy Holidays, Rosettes!

With all the twinkling lights, glitzy holiday attire, glamorous home decorations, and trays of delicious food, we often relish in the festivities of the holidays and overlook the meaning – the gift of giving and thankfulness. This year, the Camille Rose team got to discuss among each other what they’re grateful for, what they enjoy the most, and of course – some of their favorite Camille Rose products to gift and receive! Check out what the team is thankful for, and how they will be spending this holiday season.

Keisha Pyzyznski, Graphic Designer
What are your thankful for this holiday season?
This holiday season I am thankful for my family, especially my two kids. My son is turning two years old, so he is starting to enjoy the celebrations.

What do you enjoy most about the season?
I always enjoy being with my family. My mom loves to cook, so Thanksgiving and Christmas are the holidays when she goes above and beyond. I’m looking forward to great food, great laughs, and great memories.

What CR goodies are a must during this season?
I'm all about skincare. The latest CR Face Seedless Skin and Light Affect is thee best cleanser and moisturizer I’ve ever used, hands down!

Jaleesa Howard, Social Media and Influencer Outreach Manager
What are you thankful for this holiday season?
The older I get, the holiday season becomes less about gifts and shopping. You tend to remember the reason for the season. I'm very thankful to be around my family and friends. I am grateful that everyone is in good health to continue making everlasting memories.

What do you enjoy the most about this season?
I enjoy baking cookies and other sweet treats. It's definitely one of my favorite parts of this season! I look forward to it every year. Also, having more time to try new recipes and experiment in the kitchen is fun.

What CR goodies are a must during this season?
Almond Jai Twisting Butter is my Holy Grail product especially for fall and winter! I love pairing it with Honey Hydrate from the Leave-In Collection for extra hydration. This combination gives me moisture for days!

Tanya Bellille, Marketing Product Lead
What are you thankful for this holiday season?
One word - Clarity! For the first time in a long time, my vision is the clearest it has ever been. It is easy to lose sight of your passions, goals, ambitions and values. As a creative, if I could give advice to anyone, it would be to remind yourself daily of what sets your soul on fire.

What do you enjoy most about this season?
EVERYTHING! My Christmas tree should have been up already, but I’m actually getting a live one this year and I haven’t seen “the one” as yet. I love the lights, the decorations, the way families and friends get together and cherish special moments. Everything (insert smiley face)

What CR goodies are a must during this season?
The whipped body butters are a must! These butters coat my skin in the most special way! I have a fear of ash, so TRUST ME I'm making sure my skin is lathered in these butters. Another favorite of mine is the Coconut Water Penetrating Treatment. It's my absolute favorite deep conditioner. Even though I’ve been a TWA maven for the past few months, deep conditioning is still a heavy part of my regimen and especially now that we are heading into our colder months in ATL.

Angela Stanley, Director of Marketing
What are you thankful for this holiday season?
I’m thankful for my family. I know it may sound cliché’, but my family brings so much joy in my life. They are supportive, loving, and a whole lot of fun. I realize each day how blessed and favored I am to have them, and I don’t take it for granted at all. They help me stay balanced and keep Godly order.

What do you enjoy the most about this season?
I enjoy the holiday food and shopping. I believe in retail therapy and this is the best excuse to do it even more so around this time (with no remorse or regrets)...And as for the food, I love the family dishes that made and the specialty food that sold in stores and coffee shops. Overall it’s just a season of joy.

What CR goodies are a must during this season?
Camille Rose goodies that are must this season is the decadent Cocoa Mélange Holiday gift set (sold exclusively at Target) (shameless plug), not just for others, but for myself (self -love and self-care). The body oil keeps your skin moisturized during the cold months and the deep condition is great for restoring my dry hair from the harsh cold, not to mention they smell delicious. Also, in our household we love Marcona Marnier candle and spray. The scent is warm and inviting, the perfect touch for some holiday cheer.

Bridget Anderson, Social Media Manager - Camille Rose Beauty
What are you thankful for this holiday season?
There are a number of things that I am thankful for this holiday season. I am blessed to wake up every morning with clean air to breathe and running water to bathe in. We take a lot of mundane things for granted, but reflecting on the things that I am blessed to have, like a roof over my head and a closet full of clothing to choose from makes me entirely grateful. I am eternally thankful for my family, their health, my wonderful friends and my loving partner, Keyonna. I am thankful for access to mental health therapy, my Spotify playlists that take me out of bad moods and get me through long commutes, and the convenience of Amazon prime lol.

What do you enjoy the most about this season?
My family! I live in a different state from my family, so having the ability to spend holidays with them is something that I constantly look forward to. We love to cook, throw on a holiday playlist of classics and sing and dance along (badly) to our favorite tunes. I have 4 nieces under the age of 10, with a 5th niece being born in April. There is never a dull day with them! I love to cut on their favorite Disney Channel Movies (Camp Rock and the Cheetah Girls) and watch them reenact the scenes. I also love the weather - I LOVE dressing up when it’s cold outside. I love soft sweaters, scarves, jackets and am currently working through a tough boot addiction.

What CR goodies are a must during this season?
For Hair: I love to utilize the LOC treatment (Leave In, Oil, Cream) in my hair during the winter months. I find that using more creamier products work in my benefit to ensure a long-lasting wash and go. I use the Coconut Water Leave In, Cocoa Nibs & Honey, Curlaide Moisture Butter and Curl Maker for my curls. The most amazing thing about Camille Rose Products is that my Wash & Go’s not only last forever, but my hair smells YUMMY!

For Skin: I love the FACE skincare line. I use Seedless Skin 2 times a week to buff away dull skin. I also enjoy the Flora Detox mask because it’s a clay mask, but doesn’t strip away all of your moisture like other clay masks on the market. The eye blossom jelly is my absolute favorite and I’ve noticed a difference in my dark circles. I also love the Camille Rose Turmeric Cleansing Bar for cleansing day and night in between my exfoliation.

Eartha Terrell, Camille’s Corner Editor and Content Manager
What are you thankful for this holiday season?
The holidays always give me time to reflect on my accomplishments and growth over the past year. I have a 4-year old son, Mali, who challenges me to “push the needle” and go above and beyond my wildest dreams. I’m tremendously thankful for his sweet self, his unconditional love, and being able to be a positive influence in his life. I’m thankful for my family, especially my partner and his father Willie and my mom, who help me out with Mali a great deal, which allows me to devote more energy into my practice and career. And lastly, I’m SO thankful for time off during the holidays. Because ya girl is Tired. Capital “T”.

What do you enjoy the most about this season?
I am working on buying a home, so I enjoy driving around the neighborhoods to see all the beautifully decorated homes. You’d think these families work for HGTV.

What CR goodies are a must during this season?
I love the Coconut Water Penetrating Hair Treatment because it makes mt hair smell like summer and feel like butter. I’m also a super fan of the FACE collection. It keeps my skin glowing and zit-free!

Janell Stephens, CEO and Master MIxtress
What are you thankful for this holiday season?
This year and every year, I’m forever thankful for my family, my Camille Rose team, customers, and Camille Rose supporters. I look back on my career and company, and never in my wildest dreams did I imagine being able to give back while doing something I absolutely love. Without my support group and Camille Rose employees, none of this would have been possible. None of it!

What do you enjoy the most about this season?
I love the holiday cheer, giving to the community through volunteering or donations, lighting up my neighborhood with home decorations, and hosting the holiday festivities! Nothing is more enjoyable than preparing a delicious and healthy meal for my loved ones, relaxing in the living room, and enjoying their company.

What CR goodies are a must during this season?
The Marcona Marnier Essence of Home Collection never gets old to me. I use the all-purpose cleaner in every room of my home, and I love lighting the candle in the evenings to wind down and relax. I also find it super relaxing to run a hot bubble bath and soak with the Organic Honey Bath Elixir. A little bit goes a long way!
