All We Want For Christmas - Gift Ideas For Her - Top Of The Range

Tuesday, November 29, 2011







This palette has such a huge hype in the youtube community but it is true that their blushes are amazing! Available at Sephora on store and online.

This is the perfect set for work and for those who travel, this palette has very elegant and classic colors and has three brushes. I am in love! Available at Sephora on store and online.

Laura Mercier The Book of Nudes ($60).  
This palette is luxurious and always well-coordinated for elegant women. This is a beautiful everyday palette. Available at Sephora on store and online.

Again, Laura Mercier did a great job with their new palette because all the colors are wearable and well-coordinated...Santa Claus will have to work hard with me... Available at Sephora on store and online.

This gift is the most expensive of my makeup list but I this cleansing tool looks so great. I already have this type of product but this one is electric and handier because you don't have to buy batteries every month like minde. Available at Sephora on store and online.

All We Want For Christmas - Gift Ideas For Her - Middle Range







This is a huge set of nail polishes. This is the perfect occasion to have all the colors you want to wear during a whole year in once. (This one is for me...) Available at Sephora on store and online.

Again, this is a complete set for those who want to begin, this set has a large range of colors and these are gorgeous. Available at Sephora on store and online.

Nars is well known for its quality and the pigmentation of their product...that's why this combination set will be mine too...Available at Sephora on store and online.

I am a huge fan of Bare Minerals mineral foundation but I have never tried out their eyeshadow because I am quite afraid about fall outs but these new eyeshadow looks great and all colors of this palette match my tastes. Will probably buy that one day :) Available at Sephora on store and online.

I like Lancome products, so no need to say more about that. Available at Sephora on store and online.

This is so cute right but pretty expensive. Available at Sephora on store and online.

All We Want For Christmas! Gift Ideas For Her - Low Budget

Hi Everyone,

Now that Thanksgiving is gone, Christmas is already everywhere. I already saw Santa Claus at the mall two weeks ago...surprising knowing that where I live, the temperatures are still quite high, 75 degres somedays, which is pretty nice because I hate cold temperatures and winter in general, apart for Christmas which is my favorite event of the year. 

Christmas is such a great thing in my family. I cherish this moment because this is also a special day, the one where you can share a delicious meal with everyone you love and this is also a good occasion to share and show your love with a small gift for low budgets or some fancier for those who can afford it.

This first post is dedicated to make-up and for women from teenage girls to mature women. Some of these treats  will probably be on my Christmas wish list too...I hope my husband will take a look on my blog!

I will make other Christmas gifts ideas list for people who don't have too much inspiration. Next one will be a middle range list, after that, we will have a top of the range list then some more related with fashion and accessories and the last one will talk about men's gifts.





I am in love this these colors. As you already know I love everything purple and this set is the perfect combination because it goes for every style. We have soft colors, intense deep purple and even some glitters for party time! Available at Sephora on store and online.

This mascara has a cute wand and these glitters are so pretty. I thing this is a good buy especially for new year's eve. Available at Sephora on store and online.

This color stick is the alternative to Nars orgasm and it contains argan oil, which is very moisturising, good thing for winter season to protect your skin from the cold and this is a fresh color for the rest of the year which is very natural. This is a beautiful pink color and it it way cheaper! Available at Sephora on store and online.

I already bought this tiny set, it is the size of a credit card. I think it is perfect for traveling and it contains all the colors you need, purple, gray, green, black. If you like gel eyeliner as I do, this is a bargain! Available at Sephora on store and online.

As I already said, winter is harsh for some of us and a good hand and foot cream is a must. I love L'occitane products in general because everything in here is made with natural products and it is a French brand too :) Available at Sephora on store and online.

If you follow me, you know that I love cream eyeshadow especially creaseless creamshadow because it doesn't smudge and this is perfect for monolid girls. Available at Sephora on store and online.

Sally Hansen Salon Effect - Lace Nails Tutorial - Video

Sally Hansen Salon Effect, Lace Nails Tutorial and Review

Sunday, November 27, 2011



Hi Guys,

This is a product I've never used before because I was quite skeptical about the strips concept. How it works? Does it really last 10 days? And what about the cost? Is it easy to apply? 
I had so many questions and now everything is resolved...



These strips are quite expensive, sometimes $9 at Drugstore.com or Ulta for a one shot polish, this is a quite bad point but I found a solution to use it twice. If you want to know how, you can watch the video where I apply the strips.



In this little box you can find all these items: 1 file, a wooden stick, 2 sets of strips and instructions.



This is pretty easy to apply. You just have to make sure to place the stickers in the middle of the nails, press strongly to create a strong bond between the nail and the sticker and adjust it really carefully along the cuticule line. Everything is well explain, so don't be worry! And you can remove the strips with a regular nail polish remover.



I only used one set to make my ten fingers. As each strip is very long, you can use the other side to make another nail. Just make sure not to touch the "sticky" with your finger. Stick it on the backing paper. Again, watch the video, it is easier to understand :S 

To finish off the nails, I applied an acrylic top coat because I like the glossy finish and it protects your strips from chipping and it will last longer.

It is supposed to last 10 days...I am today on my 5th day and it is still strongly attached. I will tell you if it last as long.

The application of my first try is not perfect but well...I'll be better next time with my second set!


The verdict is simple, I like this concept and even if these strips have some patterns, I don't think it is too girly. It is still wearable and elegant.

Ok it is still quite expensive but it can be a good alternative to pop up your look and it is a pretty accessory for some special occasions because you can find tens of different patterns. Some have flowers, some have glitters and even plain colors.
I also think it is nice just to try out something new...Ah, I am such a weak girl!



What do you think? Have you already tried this product? What is your favorite one? 




♡Overall: 
♡♡♡♡/5

♡Pros: 

+ Lots of choice
+ This pattern is wearable and elegant ( to my mind :))
+ Easy to apply
+ Spice up your look
+ Nice for special occasions

♡Cons: 

- Expensive for one single use or two
- Strange white line on the pattern




Great Announcement and Special Thanks
