National Lipstick Day

Hello Fabulous People!

National Lipstick Day!?! Yes, there is a National Day for just about everything! But I gotta say, it gives me an excuse to talk about one of my favorite things, MAKEUP! Sharing with you just a couple of my favorites....

I am obsessed with Esme Minerals Lipstick! So many lovely colors! Two of my favorites are Rosita & Flambe. The Rosita is part of her Lip Tint collection, and I love the gold undertones. I wear this almost daily, as it softens & conditions my lips. So silky! 

The Flambe is part of her new, more vibrant collection, and it is a wonderful bright coral color. It is quickly becoming my new favorite, for when I want a kick of color. Another plus, she uses all natural ingredients, so your lips feel great while wearing it, and for hours after! Gotta love & support small business. Love, love, love Esme Mineral Makeup! Keep up the good work! 

Now let's talk about NARS. I recently picked up my new favorite Red Lip Pencil at Sephora. If you are into the Classic Red Lip, the "vintage pout", you just gotta try the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella! This pencil is awesome! I was truly impressed with how creamy and silky this felt. Not your typical dry pencil! And this stayed vibrant for most of the day! Great job NARS! A perfect addition to my vintage wardrobe!

I would love to hear about any of your favorite lipsticks, please feel free to share! Happy National Lipstick Day!

Travel Deals

Hello Fabulous People!

So as I was making plans for vacation, I noticed some really great travel deals! So of course, I just have to share them with you!

So when planning a trip, I have a few favorite sites that I like to research & compare. Kayak is nice because you can compare several of the discount sites, against theirs. I have found some of the best prices on airline tickets there. With summer sales, you can't beat some of the offers on Southwest. Check out their National Sale on One-Way Tickets, some as low as $63!

Now, I have to say that Groupon has some really great travel deals. For instance, check out the screaming deal on a trip to the Fiji Islands & Nadi. This package includes a 5 Night Vacation, AND Cruise, AND airfare from LAX! What??

DIY Repurposed Earrings Tutorial

Hello Fabulous People,

One of the things I enjoy most, is repurposing old junk items into new found treasures! Not only is reusing/recycling great for the environment, but it also means you can create some unique, one-of-a-kind, pieces of art!

For this project, the supplies I had on hand were given to me by a friend. I helped her with an estate sale, so she gave me several bags of leather and vinyl scraps, and a bunch of broken jewelry. Knowing that I love to craft, she figured I could turn them into something great! Honestly, I have had the items for a couple of years, they got put in a box with the rest of my crafts, and I just unearthed them this week! Excited and full of inspiration, I started creating earrings and cuffs. So, in this tutorial, I am going to show you how to create four pairs of fab earrings, with mostly repurposed supplies.
