Love Package From Lisa & Purllin Knits!

As the holidays are passing by, the weather isn't getting any warmer! So a few weeks ago, I had asked my good friend Lisa to knit me a scarf as I've seen her knitting blog before and was very impressed with her work! I even sent her some goodies as a thank you which you can see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCNjEc4Zqhc

I had asked for a red big knit scarf that will be great to layer underneath jackets and for warmth! Along with the knit, she was so lovely to send me some goodies as well! I did another open package video to share with you guys :)

 The make up goodies she sent me! <3 She loves masks and samples/mini products as much as I do :)

Thank you SO much Lisa! I love everything and the scarf especially! I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to knit me such a pretty and warm scarf!!! <3

She also has a blog/youtube so please check out/follow Lisa if you aren't already!

And if you would like to learn how to knit, she also has a blog/youtube as well!

Remember to keep warm, and layer up! Scarves are my fav pieces to accessorize and play up an outfit - it's a plus that it also keeps you warm! :)


TUTORIAL: New Years Smokey Eyes

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and now the New Year is just around the corner! Most tutorials will be all about glitter & fun but let's face the facts: it's messy as heck! So I opted out for a smokey eye with a bit of a twist against the classic black and silver smokey eye.

Here is another option, with a bit of glitter, a bit of black, and a whole lot of hot SMOKE! Glitter is fun, but a smokey eye is a classic!

I also want to share/review some brushes that I am absolutely loving so I will try my best to also film that... it's just been a busy month!!!

Cydia aka Cydangie sent me a little love package. I had originally posted a video on it but it was too out of sync so I kept it on private. But here is a picture of what was inside the package! Once again, thank you SO much Cydia!!!

TUTORIAL: Easy Gold Eyes & Traditional Red Lips [Holiday Look #3]

I've been wanting to get this tutorial up for so long because this is my personal favourite look to do for the holidays! A simple gold eye and a classic RED LIP!

Urban Decay Naked Palette: "Naked" & "Buck" mixed together into crease / "Half Baked" on lids
MAC "Woodwinked" on outer corner
MAC "Ricepaper" on inner corner (w/ NYX Jumbo Pencil "Milk" as a base) and on the browbone
K-Palette 1Day Tattoo Eyeliner Pen
Andrea Lashes #33


Foundation: Maybelline SuperStay "Nude"
