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…

Mac Face and Body Foundation Review

One of my most used foundations is the Mac Face and Body liquid foundation. I've been promising a  review on it, so here it is.

Product Claims
"A water-based, water-resistant foundation that provides long-lasting, natural coverage for face and/or body. Ideal for all skin types. Face and Body Foundation provides sheer, natural looking coverage in an easy to blend, water-resistant formula. The long-lasting formula is available in a wide range of colours and contains several emollients to help moisturize and condition the skin. It delivers professional looking results that meet the exacting standards of beauty photography and is ideal for perfecting the face and body."

-Price is $32.50 retail and about $19 if you're a Mac pro card member (That could be a con based on your finances).
-For the price you pay it gives you a lot of foundation. It's in a 4 fl oz bottle.
-Because it's water based it doesn't feel heavy, it feels very light on the face.

Black Opal: True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation Review

As of late, I've have been loving this foundation. I have gotten a tan, and this prompted me to buy a new foundation matching my new shade. The color that I bought is Truly Topaz and probably in the Fall/Winter I will be back to my Heavenly Honey shade. I've used Black Opal foundations before, and I figured I would give this new one a try. Read on for my thoughts.


"Keep them guessing with picture poreless skin. This lightweight, oil-free liquid foundation seamlessly blends to provide flawless coverage with a high definition finish. Exclusive poreless technology helps minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, controls excess oil and renews skin natural radiance. Oil, fragrance and paraben-free formula. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive."


-Inexpensive, it's $10.95 online and retails anywhere between $12-$13 in stores.
-Light to medium coverage, this is a pro for those who have relatively clear skin.
-The coverage is buildable.
