  • BFTE Cosmetics + Look - January 18th, 2012
  • I recently had the opportunity to try out several mineral eye shadows from Beauty From The Earth. Crystal, President of BFTE Cosmetics, sent me this 16-piece sample set that comes with a tin case. Each sample comes with 0.5g of product. These samples actually last quite a while if you like to experiment with different color combinations like I do. :) Check out the swatches and a makeup look using 5 of these colors!

  • Fashion Friday: Episode 96 - January 13th, 2012
  • My fiancĂ© surprised me with the ultimate birthday (and Christmas) present — one of the most timeless purses of all time! He picked out this Chanel Classic Flap Bag in black lambskin with silver hardware. This purse is also known as the 2.55 bag, the number referring to February 1955 when Coco Chanel designed the initial version of this handbag. I know that this bag was a big purchase (and an even bigger surprise!), but it’s definitely a classic purse that will always be in style. <3

  • Make Up For Ever Wild & Chic Eye Shadow Palette Look - January 11th, 2012
  • This makeup look uses 3 of the 6 eye shadows that come in the Make Up For Ever Wild & Chic Eye Shadow Palette (see my review here). This palette is sold exclusively at Sephora inside JCPenny stores for $39.00, but each of these eye shadows are permanent and can be purchased individually for $18.00 each. This neutral eye shadow has been a go-to look for me over the busy holidays (I wore it many times with different lipsticks)!

  • Make Up For Ever Wild & Chic Eye Shadow Palette - January 9th, 2012
  • On my way home from Los Angeles, I had a few hours to kill before my flight so I looked up the closest Sephora store to do some shopping. :) I ended up at a Sephora inside JCPenney store and came across this Make Up For Ever Wild & Chic Eye Shadow Palette that’s sold exclusively at these locations. This palette comes with 6 pretty eye shadows and a travel-size Aqua Eyes in “Mat Black 0L”. This palette is a great way to get a variety of permanent shades without spending a lot!
