YOU'RE MAKING ME BLUSH!


I can hardly believe it is December! What happened to October and November?

The holidays are upon us,and so are all of the sparkling holiday collections.

One of my favorites is from Tarte (who is known for their Amazonian Clay products) This year they have outdone themselves with quite a few specialized sets.

This sweet little collection houses 4 Christmas exclusives to give you a pop of color for those posh parties. Grab this for a stocking stuffer or for a special treat for yourself.
It's at Ulta for $35,and is part of the HOLIDAZE Limited Edition 2015 Collection.

Featured shades:
    Ecstatic (matte nude melon)
    Epic (matte poppy pink)
    Embellish (shimmer plum rose)
    Entertain (shimmer rosy pink)


 Ecstatic and Epic
My daily pick is Ecstatic,which gives me a lovely,peachy glow! Each is long-wearing,and perfect for on the go touch ups,just toss in your bag.

Embellish and Entertain 

Until next time~

SIMPLY ENCHANTING

M.A.C's "Enchanted Eve" - Copper Eye & Lip Bag (Limited Edition) (Nordstrom Exclusive) is now available in stores and online.






It is gorgeous! I am so happy that I decided to splurge on this set. The colors are perfect and so wearable either for day or night.
The packaging is so luxurious,I feel like a princess just carrying them all inside of the beautiful little clutch.

This is Holiday style to the max.

Set includes:

- Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow in Copperluxe.

- Technakohl Liner in Photogravure

- Lipstick in The Right Note

- Lipglass in Rocket to the Moon


This collection is an $88.50 value for $59.50,and it is very much worth the price!
My local Nordstrom is at Bellevue Square, and I was very pleasantly surprised to find that they were very well stocked on all of the collection. Hurry though,as with the Holiday season approaching,that might not be the case for long!

Until next time~

"WINNING" LOOKS

I know that Bellevue Fashion Week was last month,but I cant help gushing over these beautiful dresses by Independent Designer Runway winner Phuong M. Nguyen of Dream Dresses!


There have been quite a few photos displayed recently,but I wanted to show these dresses from a different angle so that you can see the details of each crystal bead,sequin and stitch,as well as how the dress flows.

These heavenly creations are truly a work of art.


It's really hard to see the craftsmanship that goes into each dress up close when it is floating down the runway on a model,so I am very glad that these dresses are on display at The Bellevue Collection Center Court.

Following,are a few of my favorites, along with a dress that took my breath away.

Exquisite beading
The corset and lace on this dress is divine

You can see more at http://www.dreamdressesbypmn.com/collections/red-carpet-gowns/products/sexy-tulle-beige-gown-with-all-over-red-embroidery-pb090

Life is but a "dream"

Until next time~

"PUMPED UP"

It's not very often that a girl gets the chance to get a personal recommendation from one of her favorite beauty and hair care teams,but that's exactly what happened.

I am a huge fan of the show Project Runway (yes, THE Project Runway,on Lifetime TV) and I love tweeting along with the Sally Beauty team,Mary Kay makeup artists and the show. I have even tweeted with some of my favorite designers on the show this season.

Thursday night,Sally Beauty and the wonderful Gregory Patterson (@GO Peterson) invited viewers to a Truth or Dare game about our hair. I shared that my hair woes were flat, non voluminous locks. In reply, I got a personal recommendation to try their brand of Volume Building Shampoo : "FaLL3nAng3L79 Voluminous hair starts in the shower! Try this #ProjectRunway 'IN' product: http://bit.ly/1Lqicaf  #SBrunway" and my tweet to them was favorited by the brand ambassador himself.

So,being the beauty gal that I am,I hopped over to my nearest Sally Beauty and found not only the shampoo,but a whole line of products made just for me! They are safe for color treated hair and made to pump up that volume!
 Better yet? most products are under $10.00 and I got a huge savings by applying for the Sally Beauty Club Card ($5.00 for one year) and you get a $5.00 off coupon next time around, so you can be sure, I will be going back to try out the other products like the root boost spray and the finishing spray! 

Shown here: Ion Volumizing Shampoo ($6.49),Ion Volumizing Conditioner ($7.29) and Ion Volume Builder ($7.29)
I decided to try these out this morning and the results were like night and day!

Before (unstyled hair) Pardon the low key makeup
 My stick straight hair was soft and full after blow drying.
When styling,my hair felt thicker somehow,and what blew me away was that even after covering up with a hood due to a Seattle downpour, my hair style held up and didn't go flat,my hair still felt soft and wonderful.
After (using a curling iron,and just a touch of hair spray)
 Its been 12 hours and my hair looks just as good!

Until next time~
