louboutin for the holidays

There is nothing like the look and comfort of Christian Louboutin shoes! These are simply adorable to wear with your party outfit this holiday. They will look fabulous with an all black outfit, accented with a leopard print or fuchsia pashmina. These truly are a festival for your feet!

Add a little "Prep" in your step this holiday with this gorgeous Lilly Pulitzer pink and green Lee cardigan sweater. I am holding out hope that someone will love me enough to buy one for me too!

ruby woo

The holidays are upon us & now is the time that I roll all of my red outfits out of the closets. Although Hanukkah is traditionally a blue & white holiday, RED seems to be the universal holiday color. This includes MAC's Ruby Woo red lipstick. This is my favorite shade of red lipstick and I wear it often in the winter. The trick to wearing this shade (which looks great on all skin tones!) is to wear very little eye make-up. I often adhere to the old rule of thumb: heavier eye makeup with sheer glossy lips; or accentuate your pout with just a coating of mascara on your eyes. Rarely, do I ever put a strong emphasis on both the eyes and the mouth, unless it is for a modeling shoot. For the holidays, I will put on some Ruby Woo, brush on just a light touch of gold, shimmery shadow and a coat of mascara. The entire application should take less than 10 minutes and you will look like a full-on glamor gal!

henri bendel surprise-

We made a trip into one of my favorite shops, henri bendel, for a little surprise. Unfortunately, I cannot say what we bought or who the gift is for, because it would ruin the holiday surprise. After the holiday, I will certainly post a photo of the gift and what the recipient looks like when the present is opened!
