Warm Beauty

Happy Thursday!  Sharing some of my favorite beauty products today.  Simple, yet beautiful make-up for a warm glow and a pop of red on the lips.   What are some of your favorite beauty products?   Let me know!

New Year, New Lipcolor


Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Now that we’re halfway through the first month of the new year (anyone still putting away the last bits of holiday decor?), I thought I would perk up my lip color arsenal and refresh my stash with some new additions.  Since I have a several after-work events to attend this week, I can’t wait to sport these new colors and share with you!

In the spirit of trying new things, I picked up a range of colors this weekend:

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Pastel

Bite Beauty Pencil in Cranberry

MAC Lipstick in Up the Amp

MAC Lip Pencil in Magenta

NARS Lipstick in Funny Face

Have a great week!

Big Red




These are some photos from holiday shopping earlier this week.  As you can tell from my happy smiles and the bounce in my step, I’ve caught the “holiday cheer” bug!  I just love this time of year.  Everything is festive and I do enjoy the busy shopping experience — just a great feeling to find the right gift for the right person.

I’m counting down the days until we leave for LA.  We’ll be there all next week to see family and friends for Christmas.  LA is always a fun trip…our home away from home.

Punch up with Metallics


Ever since I saw this photo, I have been hooked on getting a pair of silver metallic pumps.  Metallics are right on trend, especially as an accessory to punch up an outfit.  Don’t get me wrong, I love tone-on-tone dressing as in the photo above, but the shoe just finishes this ensemble perfectly.  Here are some options:
