Sunday Link Love, Volume #078


I know this is kind of… after-the-fact, but this is SUCH an awesome idea for beauty enthusiasts!!

Happy Sunday!

To those who celebrate, Merry Christmas! We don’t celebrate religiously, but we do celebrate it as a family holiday–a time to come together, enjoy each other’s companies, and exchange gifts. The older I get, the more practical (and domestic) my wish list becomes! I ended up with a few coveted items from Le Creuset (thank goodness for outlets!) in my favorite shade, Caribbean Blue. I’ve always watched and re-watched one of my favorite holiday movies, which is aptly named The Holiday; Kate Winslet and Jack Black make my heart melt in it. Not really a Christmas classic but one I always return to. With my family, we always watch Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story 🙂 I hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend and sharing it with loved ones!

What We’re Wearing, Vol. 047

What We’re Wearing, Vol. 047

My Christmas-themed look, which I wore today, actually! 🙂  I used NARS Smudgeproof as my eyeshadow base, and then I applied Inglot #418 on the lower third of lid, Inglot #430 on the middle of the lid (and just above the crease), Inglot #450 above the crease, Burberry Trench on brow bone to highlight, Bobbi Brown Bronze on lower lash line with Inglot #430 smudged below.  I patted on Illamasqua Seduce Cream Blush on cheeks softly.  I mixed Hourglass Imagine Extreme Sheen Lipgloss and Giorgio Armani #602 Gloss d’Armani on lips.

What was your favorite look you wore this week?

It doesn’t impact it either way – I won’t not buy a product because a particular celebrity has endorsed it, but I also won’t buy a product because a celebrity says it’s great. I don’t blame a brand for cashing in on a celebrity’s audience/reach, but I really don’t follow celebrities, so I don’t identify with any of them and want to buy products they like/endorse.
