Merry Christmas One and All !

Happy Holidays! & Merry Christmas Eve Everyone!



I hope that all of you have started your holiday season off right this weekend, and are enjoying good times with your family and friends.

This will be my second Christmas since joining the beauty community, and I just wanted to take this opportunity to say "Thank You!" to all of you who have made these 2 years so absolutely wonderful!

I very much enjoy the world of beauty and fashion; but the people I have come to know along the way have only made this experience that much sweeter! I truly love and appreciate each and every one of you amazing women and men. Your support and kindness have opened my eyes and my heart! So, Thank You!

I am excited to be back after the holidays with new videos for you all to enjoy! If you wouldnt mind, please comment below and let me know if you would be interested in seeing a Christmas Haul video?

I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas! & good tidings in the New Year!

DONT meet me under the mistletoe! UNTIL ...

 ... you watch this Oral Hygiene Routine video !
The only thing less attractive on Christmas than fruit cake, is STANK breath.
So save yourself and your loved ones the smell and the embarrassment, and invest in a Orabrush today!



The Orabrush's back story is particularly interesting to me because I am a Youtube Beauty Guru, and this product was the first ever to go from nothing to national retail using Youtube alone!
My experience with the Orabrush and its corresponding tongue foam is outlined in my oral hygiene review video above, but I can tell you this right now---> it will be life changing.
Once you use this little device to scrape years of gunk off your tongue, you will never, and I mean NEVER EVER go without your Orabrush again.
This Christmas Season, 1000 Walmarts will be offering a FREE tongue foam with the purchase of any Orabrush!
If your Walmart is not offering complimentary tongue foam with purchase, just take a picture of your Orabrush in its original packaging and visit this link to receive your Free tongue foam!

Here's to lots of big kisses under the mistletoe!!! :)

URBAN DECAY NAKED 2 PALETTE ?!?!

So after much speculation in the beauty blogosphere...... its official folks!
Urban Decay WILL be releasing a Naked vol. 2 Palette this year! :) In fact, the launch is scheduled for the day after tomorrow! Thursday, December 1 2011.
Just in time for the holidays, no doubt ;)
UD has confirmed on both their website and their facebook page that a new NAKED product will be announced by email on Dec 1, so make sure that you visit, http://www.urbandecay.com to sign up for emails so that you will be among the first in the know.
After some Google-ing, I came across these photos that are believed to be "a first glimpse" at the inside of the Naked 2 Palette. Now, I by no means am claiming these pictures are legitimate.. However, the palette pictured  looks strikingly similar to the one shown on UD's FB page today as a "sneak peek."
See for yourself, and let me know what you think! (** EDIT: PALETTE IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR SALE ON  THE UD WEBSITE. THESE PICTURES ARE ACCURATE AND LEGITIMATE**)


The Original Urban Decay Naked Palette



Urban Decay Naked 2 (exterior packaging)




Urban Decay Naked 2 (interior)


Colors Included in the New UD Naked 2 Palette: Foxy, Half Baked, Bootycall, Chopper, Tease, Snakebite, Suspect, Pistol, Verve, YDK, Busted, Blackout



Urban Decay Naked Original (bottom) 
vs.
Urban Decay Naked 2 (top)





Urban Decay's "Sneak Peek" photo from their Facebook Page



As you can see, UD's Naked 2 palette looks to have a new array of netural colors to choose from and  snazzy metal,  holiday-esque packaging.  It also appears to come with a mini lip junkie and possibly a brush included rather than a 24/7 eyeliner and primer potion which UD opted for with their original Naked palette.

What do YOU think of the Naked vol. 2 Palette? Will you be purchasing?
I personally think I might be tempted ;) I own the UD Naked original and use the palette regularly. I sure do love my neutrals! This new NAKED appears to have a greater variety of lighter, champagne, shimmery colors- which are my personal favorite, so I will probably be splurging on the NAKED 2 when it releases on December 1st! :)

Fall 2011 Boot Trends!

Happy Fall Beauties!


Cooler, crisp weather is finally here! & One of the many things I look forward to this time of year is BOOTS.
Boots.....
and then some more, 
Boots!


I am absolutely loving Fall 2011's boot trends and am excited to share some of my amazing online finds with you!


My absolute FAVORITE trend for this year is the lace-up boot/bootie.
   The look of these boots is reminiscent of something from the Colonial period; a time in history that I've always been enamored with. 
        Lace-up boots have both a masculine and feminine appeal.  While still edgy grunge, they also tend to convey a look of romantic vintage; a popular trend that has carried throughout the seasons this 2011.


Other popular Styles & Trends this fall include... oxfords, buckles, shearling accents, rich bright hues, elegant spikes and platforms!


Here are a few of my Absolute Favorites:
