{From The Archives} I’m Going Naked 2…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on October 9, 2012 at 7:53 am

This is an article I posted back in February 2012 {now slightly revised}; I decided to repost, because I thought these colours would be gorgeous for autumn, and also, at the time of writing, my blog was only a month old 🙂

No I’m not going that naked!! But Naked 2 by Urban Decay. It’s one of the best and hottest eyeshadow palettes… EVER!  This has been the most anticipated sequel to the original Naked Palette, the stores could barely keep it on the shelves, when the original came out, and can you believe there was a waitlist for this one!

With the Naked palettes you can literally create hundreds of beautiful eyeshadow combinations, you can mix them, use each on its own, do whatever your creative heart desires.  Well I’ve finally got mine and I’m very happy. If you’re anything like me, treating yourself is always a happy occasion, worthy of a celebration.

The original Naked consisted of 12 neutral shades which included colours to create the smokey eye look.  The new palette consists of 12 Taupes and what they are calling “Greige” neutrals. I also love the names of the colours, Booty Call, Tease, Suspect, you get the drift.  Urban Decay has done it again!  Beautiful colours and  beautiful packaging; this set would also make a chic holiday gift.  $50.00 at Urban Decay, Sephora {click links to shop}, and other stores. Go get yours!!

A Colourful Wednesday…

In Daily Musings on September 12, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Happy Wednesday Dahhlings!  We’re half way there, speeding towards the weekend; so to help you along, I’m sending some cheerful colour into your life.

I Found this gorgeous shot on Pinterest and had to post it for you.  I felt the colours were amazing with her exotic almond shaped eyes, and decided that all this sparkle, was just the thing to perk you up, and help you through the next 2 days. WE’RE NEARLY THERE!

I need your help; can anyone think of another term for Wednesday instead of “hump day“?  I really dislike that term!  Isn’t there something more fun and a little more chic we could use?

Seeing Red…

In Daily Musings on July 11, 2012 at 9:14 am

I love this red dress. This is exactly how I would style it…Simple! This photo reminds me of walking down 5th Avenue in NY {which it probably is} ~ How I miss NY!!

 Red is one of my all time favourites when it comes to colour. Red is hot, and I mean in a sexy way, Red is passion, red is confidence! Red says, I know who I am, do you? Red nails, red lips, red shoes; a slip of a red dress, there’s just something defiant and elegant about the colour of love.  Here’s my collage of seeing red… Here goes!

My Closet Door

In Daily Musings on January 6, 2012 at 9:20 am

I’ve decided to paint my closet door. I love this colour, I know you can’t see much of it but it’s beautiful. The colour is a blue/green, I’m going to Home Depot to see if they can match for me.  One of my other projects for 2012 is to get my closet to look just like this on the inside!!

Beautiful colour.
