Here are just a few things out of many that I’m incredibly thankful for that I thought I would share with you all.

  • Friends & Family who support my dreams and goals; who push me when I want to give up; who love me even when I do.
  • A boyfriend who understands me in ways even I don’t understand myself; who keeps me from going crazy by doing all of the back-end work for Temptalia; who loves me as flawed as I am.
  • Readers who give me reasons upon reasons to keep blogging.  This blog could not exist without such a dedicated and enthusiastic reader base!  Your participation and support are vital to our success.
  • Blogging because it gives me a creative outlet and keeps me writing everyday.
  • Mellan for all of his crazy antics and puppy behavior–he keeps me young and teaches me not to be so serious.
  • Beauty brands for their support in helping provide Temptalia readers with the latest products and news, not to mention their product donations for contests and giveaways!

Thank you! Happy Thanksgiving!

I have some very exciting news to share with you all! It’s a project that has been in the works since January: Beyond Beauty: Look Compilation. A few readers have flattered me enormously by going through my looks and printing some of their favorites out, and I had several suggest making an e-book/book of my looks available. I’m so pleased to be able to say you can now order your very own copy of Beyond Beauty: Look Compilation.

It features a compilation of looks from the past two years. It does not feature every look, but it features the looks I feel were my best work as well as a good variety of different types of looks. Each look features an individualized tip, plus an area for you to write in your own notes/comments. The book is 100 pages in length, with just over forty different looks featured in it. All of the pages are 100% full color, and the pages are 8×11″ in size.

It is available in three versions through Lulu.com:

Hardcover ($49.95)

Paperback ($34.95)

e-Book ($9.95)*
