My Latest Fashion Addiction...Clutches!!!

It's been a while since I've done a fashion post. Since the Spring, I have been going clutch crazy. I just love them... a few clutches (at least 1 black and 1 white ) are a part of my top 10 wardrobe essentials. A good clutch can add that extra chic and glamour to any outfit, especially when it matches your outfit or your shoes!

They especially come in handy when you're going out, I don't like to carry big handbags and purses at night.. I find that clutches are easy to carry and surprisingly, they can carry a lot of your essentials for a night out.

I prefer the envelope style clutches, I've been collecting them from all over. Right now, I'm searching for a blue and red envelope style clutch. Here is my current collection.

Copper Sparkle LOTD

One of the makeup trends for this winter season is metallic eyes and red lips. I voted in my poll on the top right side of my blog, that I was going to try both trends (metallic eyes and red lips). This look is starring the beautiful frost copper sparkle pigment. Since the pigment is very sparkly and has copper flecks in it, I kept the browbone and crease area very neutral and subdued. Here's the look.






PRODUCTS USED

Eyes

-Elf brow kit in medium
-Urban Decay primer potion
-Mac Copper Sparkle pigment on lid
-Mac Texture e/s in crease
-Mac Studio Finish concealer NC45 as highlight

Will you try the metallic eye…

Adore Me Lingerie Reveal + Review

Hey, Glamour Dolls!


A few posts ago, I did a introductory post on Adore Me lingerie. I was sent a beautiful set of lingerie of my choice for consideration. If you're interested in learning more about my experience with Adore Me, keep reading!







Online Presence

As mentioned in my previous Adore Me post, when you view their website- it prompts you to create an account and then you're prompted to take a quick quiz on your style and lingerie options. I found the website efficient and easy to navigate. I loved taking the quiz, it's always fun to find out what styles you like the most.

After the quiz is taken, you're sent an email notifying you that your showroom is ready. It took maybe a few hours for me to receive this email, your showroom lists all of the possible lingerie choices that you may like, which are based on your selections from your quiz.



Lingerie Choices




This is when I really fell in love with Adore Me, when you think of lingerie-immediately bras and underwear co…

WET N WILD EYESHADOW PALETTES



Every year I've been loving Wet n Wild palette's more and more... the pigmentation, color choices and the prices won me over! I use these palettes when I want a quick look and don't want to think about what colors to put together. They make some of the best mattes shadows. I really don't have to go in to much detail about these palettes, everyone should know how fabulous they are by now! I own 10 of their palettes. I must say one of the beauty highlights of my year was when I found the limited edition I heart Matte palette at Walgreens, you wo…

Since I'm a BzzAgent, I was sent some exclusive products from the Burt's Bees line for my consideration. I was sent the Sensitive Skin Facial Cleanser and the Sensitive Daily Moisturizing Cream.

Mosiac Effects NOTD (Nails of the Day)

By now, I'm sure everyone is familar with the Crackle craze, there have been plenty of other dupes like Crackle including the Shatter and now, I fell in love with another dupe by Avon... it's the Mosiac Effects polish.

I bought it from my Avon rep, it was on sale for $3.99 but the regular price is $6.00 ( a few dollars cheaper than crackle). You apply it the same as Crackle, you pick a base color, let it dry and apply a coat of the mosiac top coat to your nails and then watch it transform. I love watching the designs form :-) I apply a clear top coat and then I'm done.


I get gel overlays over my own nails and I took it to the shop and let the nail technician use it and this is how it came out looking. I've used it on my toe nails, but; it doesn't come out as well, it applies really thick for some reason.

If you're looking for an inexpensive version of Crackle, the Mosiac Effects is worth a shot, the only down side is that it only comes in one color, black. It c…
