Brightspots in my Day... (Look what I won!)

Hello Glamour Dolls,

I am back in stride, my vacation was relaxing and I caught up on a lot of rest and just enjoyed some of the simple things in life.

Before I left, I won an awesome giveaway by Donna at Lovin' All Things Fab! Donna is always busy but still has time for one of her She inspires me because her makeup (FOTD's) always looks fierce no matter what's happening!

She has that sincere, down to earth personality that you can relate with... when you get the chance, visit her blog and You Tube channel.

Check out the goods!


I don't know how long I've been wanting to try Sugarpill's eyeshadows but it's been a very long time, I was so happy to see this in my's a matte black shadow.


Both palettes are new to the Wild and Wild collection, I'm a big fan of Wet n Wild and I really wanted to pick up a few more of their items but haven't been able to, so; I was uberexcited about these palettes-especially since the colors are perfect for every day wear.

Walking on Eggshells palette

Silent Treatment palette


I still can't believe I won it... the Urban Decay Naked palette!!! This palette needs no introduction, it's been all the rave since it first came out and people are still going crazy over it. It's neutrals turned up a notch! I can't wait to see what looks I'll come up with using it.

I'm really, really excited about everything! I've been on a makeup hiatus for a while and haven't bought any in a few months... everything couldn't have came at a more perfect time :-). Thanks again, Donna, for the makeup goods!

Do you have any of these items in your collection? If so, what do you think?

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face 101 :DC Makeup Class (Recap)!

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face makeup class. I met Alexandra the first time at The NYC Makeup show last May; before then I had been following her work since an interview she did on Erin Bailey's (Scandalous Beauty) beauty blog.

Alex is a beautiful and amazingly talented freelance makeup artist who currently lives in Atlanta. She worked for Mac for a while and now she's professionally freelancing on her own. She has all kinds of clients from your every day women to celebrity clients. She has done makeup for cast members from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and also Real Housewives of Atlanta TV shows. I've always admired her flawless face makeup, especially the way she sculpts and contours or as she would say "snatched up your face."

Alex has been hosting makeup shows in several states and she made her way to DC this past Sunday, I couldn't wait (I registered back in February)! I loved the class so much, I r…
