Have you guys picked your 🎄yet?⠀
Все уже прикупили елки? В Нью Йорке елочные развалы буквально на каждом повороте, и обойдётся вам зелёная шестифутовая красотка от $55 до $85 в зависимости от района. ⠀
Американцы обычно ставят ель в первых числах декабря и выбрасывают 26 числа, сразу после Рождества. Я уже говорила, что это отличный вариант для тех, кто хочет сэкономить - забрать одну из выброшенных 🎄 себе и поставить к новому году.⠀
У меня в этом году не будет дерева ибо ковры, а (как и большинству ньюйоркцев) искусственную мне негде хранить 😆 ⠀

Does anyone else feel like it’s still October or just me? 🙋🏻♀️ // Enjoy this cute Christmas ready family 🎄❤️
Despite the scowl, I’m pretty darn HAPPY about my personalised @mickyinthevan
t-shirt! (They also now have kids sizes to jump over to their website to order yours and your minis!) -
Eyelash alert 🚨! Eyebrow alert 🚨! LOVE LOVE LOVE the lash and eyebrow growth I’ve had since using this.
This stuff is incredible and I’ve gotten STRANGERS (of course we then became friends and they signed up to buy it) stop me and say how long my lashes are.
I use the eye wonder morning and night on my top and bottom lashes and eyebrows and I also add a drop of our magic golden oil 🦄 to my mascara 😍😍😍.
Here’s why I chose THIS one:.
⠀ ✅ Absolutely NO animal testing whatsoever. They are leaping bunny 🐰 certified which means they do not test in any phase of production. ⠀ ✅ Paraben and phthalate FREE and free from over 1300 toxic chemicals that are BANNED in Europe but NOT here. ⠀ ✅ 30 day money 💰 back guarantee (pssst... this is a BILLION dollar company with a money back guarantee and a less than 1% return rate .... I would say they are onto something).
⠀ ✅ Cost! So I am a firm believer that I have no problem paying more for QUALITY. I want a product that works AND checks all the boxes.... this product is actually significantly lower priced than some other brands and works better IMHO + you’re not placing gross 💀 toxins into your eyeball 👁 or torturing animals.
Send me a PM or drop a ❤️ in the comments if great lashes and brows are on your 🎄list!
Makes a great 🎁 as well.
As much as I loved Thea as a baby, I love her so much more today. I’ve wanted one of these for so long, but I’m glad I waited. Now I can look back and remember her little curls, how she loves to dance to whoever is dancing on TV, the way she wakes me up at 5:30 am with singing into her (very loud) Frozen microphone on the baby monitor. How (Praise Jesus) she still lets me put a bow in and do her hair, and how she is big but yet still fits on my lap. I’m hoping this little ornament (and silhouette) will help freeze all of these memories for me because I can’t freeze her. And it’s also next to her tiny hand print from last year😭 #cuethetears #babiesdontkeep

I feel like I’m a holiday too late 🎃
Professional window shopper.
Gingerbread with royal icing. I think this is officially a holiday tradition for me now! I prefer mine very gingery and sharp, and often paired with coffee.
It’s been a whirlwind of a couple of weeks, wrapping up clients and prepping for January. There is still more work to be done, but today I got to take a break to come out of work mode and go into social mode for two fun holiday parties.
The first was an intention crafting workshop with @heidi__stevens
at Heidi’s beautiful home. I’m always inspired when I go there and to be in room full of women I admire making vision boards for 2019 was so fulfilling.
And now I’m off to @iansheppard
’s work holiday party. But first, a stop at @nordstrom
to finalize my outfit details for the evening. 😬
Half birthdays call for celebratory gingerbread cookies. Two and a half just like that.
You just can’t find a better color palette. Give me all the shades of blue and all the farmer markets!
I wasn't much of a blush person but, over the past couple of months, I've been really enjoying using blushes. Here are a few faves:
Mac has a really cool shade range when it comes to blushes and 'Raizin' is such a unique shade - a burgundy brown. Another high end fave is my Inglot blush - the formula is so soft and smooth and it adds a natural flush of colour to the skin. Nyx is my fave brand for affordable blushes. I've raved about their HD Blushes on numerous occasions but their ombre blushes are amazing too (yet so underrated). They're smooth, creamy and they add a flush of colour and illumination to the cheeks. Also, the ombre range has a few unique shades - like this mauve one!
I'm quite hesitant to use shimmery blushes but the Ofra Blush/Bronzer Format is pretty nice - the shimmer adds a glow to the skin without being glittery or chunky. A new fave is the Glossier Cloud Paint in 'Storm' - I cannot rave about it enough! The unique gel-cream formula makes this liquid blush so easy to apply and blend.

Is the Wet 'n Wild Photofocus Eyeshadow Primer a dupe for the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion?
If you've been reading my reviews for a while, you'd know that the WnW Photofocus Eyeshadow Primer is my holy grail because it's the only eye primer that combats my oily eyelids and keeps eyeshadow in place (for the entire day). The UD Primer Potion was a freebie with a recent UD order and, because the WnW primer is supposedly a dupe for the UD one, I thought I'd put them both to the test and see if there are similarities and differences between the two.
The UD Primer Potion is creamier and blends out more easily on the lid. However, it is not as tacky as the WnW primer - this makes it easier for matte eyeshadows to blend on top of it but not as easy for shimmer eyeshadows to adhere to the lid. In terms of lasting power, WnW wins for this category. On my oily lids, the UD Primer Potion does keep my eyeshadow in place for a good couple of hours but the WnW Photofocus Primer ensures that the eyeshadows do not lose their vibrancy/intensity and that they are in place until I remove my makeup.
All in all, I prefer the WnW Photofocus Primer but the UD Primer Potion is much easier to work with. But if you have dry eyelids or do not like tacky eye primers, then the UD one will be a better option. Keep in mind that the WnW primer is one third the price of the UD one. Fave eyeshadow primer?

*Lush's Mask of Magnaminty - fave mask of all time. Will definitely repurchase.
*Son & Park Beauty Water - great toner but I'm not blown away by it. I probably won't repurchase.
*Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Cooling Masque - this worked wonders on my acne and I absolutely loved it. But it's apparently discontinued and I'm so disappointed 😭.
*Dermalogica Clear Start Hydrating Lotion - a good, light, hydrating moisturiser. It kept my skin moisturised and semi-hydrated but it didn't really help with acne. Repurchase? Nah.
*Mimi Botanicals Moisturising Skin Tonic - love this! It's a great facial mist and toner that refreshes the skin and adds some moisture. Repurchase? Yes!
