DIAMONDS AND PEARLS

It feels like it has been a long time since I have posted. I am just catching up after all of the holiday season,and this was originally intended to be a Valentine's Day post,but I never made the deadline.

Some of my favorite little accessories are the ones that go with just about everything from casual to career wear.

 These Honora Pearl earrings are just the thing for a casual brunch out on a Sunday,perfect for the nine to fiver,or for a night out on the town with your sweetie.


Shown here, are two perfect styles,a diamond and pearl drop earring featuring freshwater cultured pearls and 10K yellow gold,and something fun, red freshwater pearl earring studs. These are the perfect size,not too overwhelming!

Did you know that Honora carries pearls in just about any color you want? It's true! Blue,Gold,Green,you name it,even lovely lavender pearls. Check them out online at https://www.honora.com/  (right now,their website is being updated,but please check back)



Until next time~

"CHARMED,I'M SURE"

One of my absolute favorite places to shop for accessories is a wonderful boutique called Charming Charlie.

It is hard to walk in and not walk out with a bagful or two of handbags,scarves,watches and you name it!

Their prices cant be beat,and often they have bogo sales that will allow us budget conscious gals to "splurge" a little.

I always find just the right accessory whenever I stop by,and I always feel good knowing that I didn't overspend.

PAMPERING PLUS PROTECTION

Whenever the colder temperatures come around, the first thing to show dryness and irritation is my hands.

I was recently asked to review a product from Ahava for Beautystat,and was very happy to receive this hand cream.

Ahava Time To Smooth is a must for anyone wanting to improve the look of their hands,as well as protect from sun damage.

I was pleasantly surprised by how well it worked.

I applied right before bed each night for a week,and while a little goes a long way,it really did improve the way my hands looked in the morning.

The moisture stays with you,my hands felt a little less tight,and I find myself reaching for it,rather than my usual lotion instead.

There really isn't too much of a fragrance,but that works for me. 
Overall, I was satisfied and would purchase this on my own again. ($32)

"GAME CHANGERS"


Last night at the Bellevue Square Microsoft store,there was an event to remember.


Luke Willson (#82) and Jermaine Kearse (#15) of the Seattle Seahawks came out to play Madden 17 for charity and to introduce the new Surface Pro 4 NFL Special Edition Type Cover. Of course, that cover was a Seahawks edition for our neck of the woods.


The competition got fierce,but Luke was the winner in the end,with $5,000 going towards the 12 North Sports. Afterwards,there was a special meet and greet for those lucky enough to be among the first 100 fans in line,and everyone received autographed photos of both players courtesy of Microsoft.!

A "Hair-raising" Experience

Some of my favorite beauty and hair care products do not necessarily sport a designer label.

I have tried most of the styling aids from the famous lines, but have found that most dry out my hair or really do not perform well at all.


I have had alot of success with the Ion line from Sally Beauty,and am happy to say that these two products have kept my hair soft,shiny,and styled all day,without making it feel like straw or an oil slick the next day.
 What's even better is the price is  about half the cost of what you would pay at a salon or beauty store. 



Shown here: Ion Finishing Spray (Volumizing)and Illuminating Pomade.


For more information on these styling products and more,log on to http://www.sallybeauty.com/hair/Hair,default,sc.html?prefn1=brand&prefv1=ION


Until next time~

IT'S ABOUT "TIME"

I finally managed to get my hands on the brand new Urban Decay "Alice,Through The Looking Glass"palette.($60.00 at ULTA)

I wanted to wait until I actually saw the movie,so that I could get a better perspective of the elements included in the set and I am really glad that I did.

For those of you that dont know, all of the familiar characters are there,and Alice meets up with her dear friend "Hatter" for another courageous adventure.This time though, the sequel was actually better than the first,and had more heart. It was more about love,family and best friends forever. Oh, and forgiveness.. It was a feel good movie and I walked out of the theater with a smile on my face.



The shades in the Urban Decay palette arent pieces of a mirror at all, they are from Alice's tunic that she wore in the film. The lipstick shades are named after the "stars" and of course the beautiful butterfly that appears when you open the box is reminiscent of Absolem,who was a caterpillar in the first film..(get the "time" theme?)and yes, time changes us all.


Alice shades 
Looking Glass (pale pink demi-matte)
Reflection (soft peach matte)
Dormouse (warm brown matte w/floating gold micro-sparkle)
Metamorphosis (vibrant periwinkle blue w/micro-sparkle)
 
Mad Hatter shades include:

Hatter (vibrant green w/tonal micro-sparkle)
Gone Mad (aubergine w/pink iridescent pearl)
Paradox (vibrant orange w/gold pearl)
(saturated blue-pink w/silver micro-shimmer)
 
Mirana shades include:

Lily (opal pink pearl)
Duchess (peach w/pink shift and micro-sparkle)
Kingdom (copper-bronze pearl)
Chessboard (medium brown matte)
 
Iracebeth shades include:

Heads Will Roll (vibrant turquoise w/gold micro-sparkle)
Bandersnatch (deep teal matte)
Salazen Grum (metallic crimson)
Royal Flush (pale beige shimmer)
 

Time shades include:

Time (black-navy satin w/soft iridescent micro-sparkle)
Dream On (metallic purple-silver)
Chronosphere (metallic deep bronze)
Mirror (gray-taupe satin)



The lipstick shades are also creative and whimsical. My favorite being Alice,a soft sheer apricot shade. There's Mad Hatter,Time,Mirana,and Iracebeth.
Urban Decay does a wonderful job on creating shades for fair skinned people. I was not able to purchase all of the shades as they were sold out pretty quickly, but I did get to swatch both Alice and Time. ($18.00 at ULTA)


Until next time~
