Her look is for NYE but you can wear this for any other cocktail party, dinner party... 
These are all accessories you should have in your wardrobes anyway!
sassy pumps, a great jacket, over the top earrings, lipstick, and a clutch!
I created two looks:

Something just happened to me overnight..
All my life I had oily skin, then pouf it was gone and now it is DRY!!!
My lips too, they are shrinking before my eyes.
At least my vision is going too so maybe I won't even notice much longer (hehehe).
So when Youngblood offered to send me some of their mineral beauty products.. I was all over that ;)

Ladies, Their moisturizing tint rocks! It is my new favorite beauty product!
It is a tinted moisturizer so it gives you light coverage to even out your skin,
but the thing I love so much is it gives you a little glow too!
Makes me look more fresh faced. 
I actually had a friend comment about it yesterday...
Of course, I told her it was my natural beauty, and she had just forgotten since she hadn't seen me for awhile ;) (hehehe)

Now on to the gloss. It gives you the lip plumping effect with out the stingy filling.
I am using the champagne color (did someone say champagne??).
It is a gorgeous neutral that would probably work on most skin tones.
I need all the plumping I can get (naturally)! No injections for this girl.

Lastly they send me a intense color eyeliner.
I haven't worn this much yet, but the pigment is great and color doesn't wear off easily, which is very important with eyeliners. Nothing is worse then a smudgy eyeliner, ugh. 

I'd check them out, if you are in the market for mineral make-up,
especially the Mineral Radiance Moisturizing Tint!

Sunday's Cool

Anna at IHOD is one of my favorite bloggers. 
She is darling and so very talented! 
I thought today's "Sunday's Cool" would help you all get ready for Christmas parties or even New Years Eve!
She transformed a simple Hobby Lobby clutch into a sparkly eye catching number you'll be proud to own!

Sprinkles and/or edible glitter (we like to mix them together!)

In a food processor combine strawberries, Vanilla Simple Syrup and lemon juice. Blend until smooth. Prepare garnish by melting white chocolate and dipping rim of champagne glasses into it. Then dip glasses into a plate of sprinkles and/or edible glitter.  Add 1 ounce of strawberry mixture to each champagne glass and top off with champagne!

Vanilla Simple Syrup

½ cup sugar
