Holiday Ideas to Drool Over!!

As of lately, I have been running back and forth like a crazy person for the last couple of weeks doing some christmas shopping, and going to all kinds of holiday parties. When it came down to the time of my first holiday party that I was to attend, it dawned on me that I didn't have a dress, and was completely unprepared. Go figure! So, I went back through several websites for items that I have been drooling over for some time, and decided to just go ahead and buy some things to wear to the parties.

Well, the parties were smashing but since I didn't have my camera at the time, I will have to give you all a little teaser to help fuel your own ideas for the holidays!

Make-up for the Holidays

It has become that time of the season again when we all are buying wonderful holiday gifts for our loved ones, putting up the Christmas tree and decorating it, hanging the stockings over the fireplace, and drinking hot cocoa. So, what better of time to feast your eyes on one of my favorite things...make-up!

Now I have been a big fan of the delightfully tattooed Kat Von D for several years now. I have watched her over her course on different tv series, bought her books, and when she came out with her own make-up line for Sephora... I just had to give in a try it! I, of course, was pleasently surprised by the quality, and when her new collection came out...I bought it!

Adora means beloved one in Latin! And what could be a better name for a collection then that? The True Romance Eyeshadow Palette $34 is a limited edition (so if you like it, buy it fast!) palette of 8 richly pigmented eyeshadow shades. Adora fuses both love and fury-one side has an assortment of frosty whites and silver, the other includes a range of sexy black and maroon shades, giving a perfect spectrum of shades that bring an edgy-glam creativity to your make-up.

The painted love lipstick $18 takes Kat's signature lip color, a sophisticated red, and expands it into a range of smoldering shades, from crimson to blood red. It comes housed in a deluxe tube with a clear Lucite bottom that shows off the color inside, and the cap is stenciled with silver roses on matte black—inspired by Kat's favorite tattoo. My favorites being-Backstage Bambi (hot pink), Hellbent (blood red), Stiletto (orange red), Underage red (bright crimson), and Lolita (dusty rose).
