One of my favorite looks for the holiday party season is golden eyeshadow and nail polish. Glimmer and shimmer puts me right in the holiday spirit and my skin tone is more flattering with gold tones rather than silver. If silver works on you- go for it! Silver shadow looks stunning with a red lip.
I did some research to get ready for the upcoming holiday parties. Here’s my picks from high end to drugstore:
Gold High Pigment Eyeshadows
NARS “Goldfinger” Shimmer Eyeshadow
Maybelline 24 HR Color Tattoo Metal in “Gold Rush”
Check out this great tutorial for gold eyeshadow with bold black eyeliner:
Face & Body Illuminators
NUXE Paris Multi-Usage Dry Oil Golden Shimmer
Olay Quench Daily Lotion Plus Shimmer
Butter London in “West End Wonderland”
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in “Game Of Chromes”. These are my new at-home polishes! They really last for close to 2 weeks w/o chipping.
Take some time to get your sparkle & fancy on this holiday.
Oo La La..
Fa La La La La!
SOS to the rescue. Here’s a few tips to carry you into the weekend. What are your plans this weekend? Take some time to pamper YOU and start sloughing off the winter heaviness.
Getting a mani/pedi this weekend? Try one of these hot colors from OPI’s new Spring 2014 Brazil Collection. Peacock teal blue is one of my fave colors so I’m going to grab that AMAZON AMAZEOFF for sure.
No time for a pedi and your feet not quite sandal worthy yet? I love neutral low-heeled booties with sundresses & skirts! You can take a dated sundress and make it look modern simply by adding a cool bootie.
I took advantage of a technical difficulty yesterday to share this candid, but heartfelt message.
How are you going to STRUT IT this weekend?
Wishing you a beautiful weekend full of sleeping in, belly laughs and moments with those you adore.
P.S. Tomorrow, March 22nd is the Just Fabulous Event with Jessica Youngblood!

Hi Little Lover!
How was your weekend? Can you believe it’s already that time again? Yes, here are your Sunday Evening Affirmations! Every week seems to be flying by. That’s a good reason to take some time to pause and regroup every weekend. Now- this evening let’s all set our intention on having a successful week ahead before we ever see Monday morning’s sunrise:
- Look in the mirror and say “I love you ____” (insert your name) at least 3 times.
- Plan a playdate with a genuine, like-minded girlfriend.
- Not skip a healthy breakfast even if it’s a protein shake on the go.
- Feed my faith and starve my fear.
- Stop taking myself so seriously.
- Try a new nail polish or lipgloss color.
- Stop making excuses and move my butt and get some exercise.
- Use my voice.
- Not compare myself to others.
- Allow myself a cheat day to indulge in something yummy.
- Always stay in peace because it gives me power.
I would love to hear some affirmations you may have! Please comment and share your love and brilliance with the rest of us.
As we wind down from the hoopla and fun of the summer swag bag giveaways, I want to thank all the sponsors once again and encourage all of you who won these great products to give us all feedback by posting on the Facebook page and letting us all know how you liked everything. I love doing some kind of at-home facial on Sundays and did a Beauty Sprinkles yogurt mask this morning and loved it!

I HEART SPRING and have checked out a bunch of Spring 2011 magazines and give you my two-cents on the top looks..and the ones to skip! First thing, it is all about BOLD COLOR this Spring. Wear a beautiful tangerine orange top. Guaranteed to make you feel powerful! There is also muted blushes, head-to-toe white, liquid metallics and the city safari look. Girls, it is time to channel your inner Charlie’s Angels this season! Tie in accents of that RETRO 70’s look…MY ALL TIME FAV!
I also added a BONUS WEBISODE…a quick rundown of the Spring 2011 Accessories.
Remember this is a great time to spruce things up, clear the clutter, try a new nail polish color or new haircolor, get a facial, get a spray tan and shed the winter blah’s!
