Baby, it’s cold outside..
It’s that time of the year when the cold weather apparel comes out and the glitz and glam side of makeup can be seen everywhere. I threw together this look that’s perfect for a daytime holiday party – or you know – going to the grocery store. With a bit of of a deeper brown in the outer-v of the eye and a darker shade on the lower lash line, this could be taken right in to evening. I also decided to sport the new Gorjana Taner Toggle Lariat from this seasons FabFitFun box! Instead of looping it once, I decided to wear it as a choker. I like it a lot!
My list of products used are as follows:
- Aveeno Clear Complexion Moisturizer
- Maybelline Baby Skin Primer
- Loreal Infallible Pro-Glo Foundation
- NYX Cosmetics Dark Circle Concealer
- Maybelline Master Conceal
- ABH Contour Palette
- Too Faced Brow Envy Palette
- Lorac Unzipped Cheek Palette
- MAC Ruby Woo Matte Lipstick
- The Balm – Mary Lou Manizer
- Coty Airspun Translucent Powder
- Morphe 350 Palette (several shades to create the eyelook)
- Butter London Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara (from FabFitFun box and I *love* it!)
- Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
In case you’re wondering I curled my hair using my Bed Head Curlipops 1″ Styling Wand. This is only my third time using it and I absolutely love how the curls come out on my short hair. I’d suggest purchasing this wand on Amazon if you’re interested because Ulta’s website currently has it for $29.99 as opposed to Amazon’s $17.99 (when I got it it was just $14.99!)
Also – I got my sweater at Marshalls a couple of years ago. If I remember correctly it was $19.99 and I got it in a 1X. I’ve decided that I don’t have enough of these chunky cozy sweaters in my life and may need to purchase more before the season is up!
I hope you all liked this holiday look! Let me know what your go-to looks are during the holidays including makeup, hair styles and clothing!
Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette
There are few product releases that are a same-day buy for me. I can guarantee that this palette will be one of them.
I’ve been lusting after this palette since I first heard about it a few months back.
This launches on March 17th and you can buy it at Sephora for $49.00.
Summer Yum, Candied Peach, and Just Peachy are my favorite shades out of this palette by just viewing photos online.
These shades are warm and housed in a very familiar metal tin with magnetic closure – Very typical Too Faced fashion which I actually love. There’s a very nice mix of matte shades and shimmer shades.
Too Faced comes out with some of the cutest packaging I think I’ve ever seen and this one does not disappoint.
Guys, it smells like freaking peaches. If that’s not reason enough to pick up this beauty for summer, then I don’t know what is.
Next Thursday I’m going away with my boyfriend for a couple of days for my birthday. We chose Newport, Rhode Island at a cute historic inn. I am crossing my fingers that shipping is fast so I can bring this with me!
Will you guys be picking this up when it releases? Let me know in the comments!

It’s 9:08 p.m on a Friday night. If I was 24 again I’d still be an hour away from heading out the door for a night of bar hopping with my girlfriends.
I’ll be 31 in three weeks. It’s now 9:11 p.m. I don’t know why it took me three – 9:12 p.m – four minutes to type what I’ve typed so far. I really need to get better at this blogging thing! Friday nights for 30 year old Nikki means a glass *cough* bottle *cough* of Chardonnay, a Modern Family marathon and diving into my latest and greatest haul!

Morning, everyone! I don’t have anything specific to blog about this morning. I just felt like writing. The boyfriend is currently occupied with Destiny (for those ladies that have no idea what that is, I congratulate you in life.) Just kidding. It’s a video game and he enjoys it. I enjoy it when he’s happy so, kind of win win? Continue reading
It is an incredibly dreary day here in New England. I’ve got my hot mug of coffee in hand and two throw blankets draped over my legs.

Read on to find swatches, release dates, links to buy, a YouTube tutorial, photos and my personal opinion! Continue reading
