where did november go?

November 29, 2010

seriously, if anyone can tell me, i’d be *thrilled* to hear your answers! because i have no idea! 9 days until my first final! EEEEEEEEEK!!!!!!!

but the bright side is:

today is cyber monday!!!!!!!

personally, i’m extremely excited for it to hit 1 pm since urban decay seems to be putting their 15 year anniversary liner set on pre-sale today!

can you say, MUST HAVE?! and it looks from the photo there are some new or maybe exclusive liners in there! that’s all the news i’ve got for now folks, but i can’t wait for it!

stila is offering their warehouse sale ONLINE this year! be sure to check this one out addicts, there are some *amazing* deals over there – lip glazes for $5-6? YES PLEASE!

and one of my absolute VERY favorites, lime crime, created by my deere friend, doe, is having their biggest sale EVER with 40% off! check out the candy eye primer, i hear its divine 😉 i’ve featured lots of looks with her products, her colors are unique and pack a major punch!

and on a non-beauty related note, henri bendel is having a cyber monday sale! 30% off sitewide and free shipping!!!!

i am a total bendel girl and i would highly recommend their handbags – amazing quality and so cute! i definitely picked up a couple for myself 😉


for a full list of deals, check out karen & christine‘s blogs – they’re better on keeping up with everything than me 🙂

i hope that y’all had a wonderful thanksgiving spending times with friends, family and delicious holiday treats!

my family came to my house, which was nice, but a bit chaotic. i missed spending time in alabama 😦

…although i think hero was happy to have some other people around!

i caught her in bed with my brother!

happy cyber monday!



christmas comes…again!

January 13, 2010

since i couldn’t find my camera for like…hmm, two weeks, here’s a look into the past for my festive christmas eve look!

this year my friend kate’s family had their famous christmas eve party, complete with the best beef tenderloin you will ever enjoy!

since my dress itself was a holiday green, i decided i didn’t want to go too overboard with my makeup and chose a gunmetal eye with a plum lip.

i started with urban decay cream shadow in mushroom. the UD cream shadows are hands down the best i have ever tried! they don’t smudge or smear and layer beautifully!

i then applied the darker gunmetal shade from kat von d’s true romance palette in metal orchestra to the crease and the white shade to my browbone and blended it all with my MAC 217 fluffy brush. i finished with urban decay’s 24/7 liner in gunmetal and a coat of diorshow in blackout. quick, beautiful and easy!

for lips i lined my lips with a clear lip liner (i used benefit d’finer d’liner) and filled in with MAC on display lipglass, plum with a yellow pearl! it was released in august with the makeup art cosmetics line but i recently was able to hunt one down at the belk in montgomery, al, so you never know if you can still find one!

i hope everyone had amazing holidays!
