A Few Holiday Obsessions...

Give Me More Lip 
Darlings, can we just stare and drool at this for a second. Ok now snap out of it. So many lippies just 2 lips! I picked up part of my Sephora haul and boy am I one happy gal! The packaging as well as the contents look so fun and the lipstick addict in me can’t wait to play with all 17 different lipsticks, lip glosses, lip balms, tars, lip creams and a lip liner. Many different brands in cute lil minis. Mini is such a huge buzzword this season, from bags to clothes to makeup. What a great idea.  I am in lipstick heaven!

This is the best time of the year for makeup lovers to add tons of products including gift sets and limited editions to their arsenals. 
This set includes four products each in reds, berries, nudes and pinks. From left to right —
1.Sephora Rouge Infusion 10 hr lip ink
2. Makeup Forever waterproof lip liner pencil
3.Tarte lip surgence  lip tint in Moody
4.Fresh Sugar Berry tinted lip treatment
5. Kat Von D Everlasting liquid lipstick in Outlaw
6.Tarte LipSurgence power pigment in Flush
7.Stila all day vinyl lip gloss in Nude
8.Bite Beauty luminous creme lipstick in Palomino
9.Benefit Posie Balm hydrating tinted lip balm
10.Too Faced La Creme color drenched lip cream in Naked Dolly
11.Bare Minerals Mini Marvelous Moxie lipstick in Speak Your Mind
12.Laura Mercier lip glaze in blush
13.Buxom mini full bodied lipstick in Menace
14.Too Faced melted liquified longwear lipstick in Fuchsia
15. Laura Mercier smooth creme lip color in  Red Armour
16.Hourglass opaque rouge lipstick in Icon
17.Black Dahlia Lip Tar by Obsessive compulsive cosmetics (laying)

Amazing colors all of them! Such great value for the money at $59 and will make a great gift for that lipstick lover friend. The best part is you get to try a variety of products from different lines. Can’t think of a lot of things better.

 Are you picking up any holiday sets this year? Which ones. 

Chocolate Of Course...

Who doesn't like a good chocolate? Not a lot of people for sure. Eyes closed, savoring every chocolatey bite. I only know one such person and that would be my second son. They just never appealed to him since he was a baby, weird stuff. 
Luxurious hand made chocolates, macaroons and more with a commitment to perfection and excellence, that is Forrey and Galland, a Dubai based chocolatier. Each edible piece of art is made to perfection and is a true delicacy. Awarded the coveted title 'Best Luxury Chocolates' by Gulf Connoisseur not once but twice, this company takes the business of producing the haute couture of French chocolate in Dubai very seriously. So if feeding your sweet tooth is top on your list as it is on mine, think Forrey and Galland. By the way they are now available at Harrods London. Yes, I covet these sweets, so exclusive! I can almost hear you going oooh ahhhh. Did I just call you out? Don’t feel bad, I am ooohing and ahhhhing too, :).

Makeup Makeup And More Makeup...

If you have an insatiable appetite for makeup, and the beautifully displayed 'Give Me More Lip' above just didn't make the cut for you, I say head on over to cosmetics counters at your local mall and while supplies last grab one or a couple holiday sets. Most brands have specially packaged holiday sets that include their popular items as well as limited editions products. Lovely cases with sparkles in tune with the season are sure to put smiles on your face. Featured above are a couple from Mac Cosmetics, sold out in most stores. I was lucky to get my hot lil hands on some. Totally doing my happy dance right now.


Clive Christian No 1. women’s pure perfume spray.
In terms of scents it truly doesn’t get any better than this. Associated with Aphrodite the goddess of love and beauty, this fragrance comes in a luxurious bottle and smells good enough to eat. At 865$ for 1.7oz, a dab goes a very long way. A sniff would convince you. So go sniff and treat yourself to a bottle and you’ll see that this bad boy is in a class of its own. The ultimate fragrance, definitely on my list. Buyer’s remorse who???

I am a huge fan of arm candy pops! Tho a minimalist when it comes to jewelry, the blogger arm party detail is slowly catching on with me. I admire the arm parties going on on others' arms and right now I am loving a few pieces. What better time of the year than now to get some and gift some. I love that you can stack on different colors, widths, brands and still look so chic. There's no right or wrong way to pull off this trend. Definitely a great stocking stuffer.  Here are a few I am loving right now. Stack them up for a chic pop of color to any ensemble. Bracelets are all the craze now and you can't go wrong with them.

 Carolina Bucci twister set of 3 rose gold plated bracelets priced at 765$ come in different colors and are such a lovely sight to behold.

 I fell in love with this Alexander McQueen double skull hinged bracelet in black until I saw the white and how I love it. Going for 495$, this would make yet another great stocking stuffer.

I am constantly editing my list but these guys seem to be etched in ink so far, lol. What's on  your list?
