Hiatus

I am sorry for the lack of posts for the month of December. It's been hectic! I'm so thankful to all of you who have stuck with me (over 8000 readers post-hiatus!) I'll be better, I promise!

I'm sure many of you are doing last minute shopping, it's the worst! Though- when you're able to find something that catches your eye...it's almost worthwhile to wait the long lines.

I went to a Dynamite store and grabbed a couple lovely pieces for upcoming parties! I nabbed this Metallic Tube Tunic

Great dress for a holiday party, or night out! Extremely comfortable and fits true to size. 
Currently on sale for $22.00. For a holiday party, I would pair this with a pair of black tights, The Jeffrey Campbell El Carmen Platform Sandal , The Michael Kors Gia Ostritch Embossed Clutch in neon pink, cinnamon, or black, and a coat, black cardigan, or blazer to keep you warm on a chilly night. 

I also found this black dress. It's so comfortable and elegant. Pair it with a bold red lip, black heels, and you're good to go!

  

Wishing everyone a happy holidays!

Gift Guide: Garage December 2011

I really love Garage's clothing for the holidays and their vision as a company. I recommend everyone to consider some of these items for themselves or for loved ones this holiday! 


I also notice on their website that for a limited time they are offering a $25 cash card with every $75 spent online or in stores. 


4 Things to Love...


1. Garage's huge selection of plaid 



Most of their plaid shirts are 97% Cotton and 3% Spandex. Some are 100% Cotton. Extremely comfortable and all are great for layering or as a statement piece on its own. Looks great with jeans. 

2. Garage's comfortable and trendy stripe tops

# 62-1694 Camelia Red/ Midnight Navy


# 62-1694 Camelia Red/ Midnight Navy $19.90
Adorable 'Can it be tee'. I love the color of the Camilia red and Navy together. The sleeves are elbow length dolman sleeves and the material is so soft. Perfect for a cold day sipping hot chocolate by the fire place! 


# 62-1073S Grey/Yellow 
# 62-1073S  Blue Jeans/Fire 
# 62-1073S Navy/White



# 62-1073S 52% Pima Cotton 48% Modal $ 24.90
Perfect shirt for the holidays. This style is so incredibly comfortable and the fit is great. It has a relaxed cut and can even be used for working out or staying at home. It looks fantastic paired with jeans. Extremely comfortable and soft. Sizes xs - l. 


3. Garage's cute and romantic floral patterns


# 62-1325P Light Grey Mix/ Sweet Cream

# 62-1325P 52% Cotton 48% Polyester $24.90
I like how Garage manages to incorporate florals in their collections. Their florals are cute and make great patterns over jeans, skirts or leggings. I think that this particular Light Grey Mix would look fantastic over a darker jean or jegging. The top has a 3/4 rolled up sleeves incorporated in the design which is a nice detail to the look. The bottom of the top is not a straight cut, it slightly gets longer towards the middle. Also makes a great layering item.

4. Garage's basics



# 62-1621 - Black Melange $18.90


# 62-1621100% Cotton XS- L $18.90]
Items that are Classic with a twist are something I can never resist. Garage's Embellished Bow Tank is just that. There's always something special about a design that has a different detail in it on a classic piece. This tank is comfortable and of a stretchy material. I really like how the beading is subtle and spaced out in a way that the whole thing isn't beaded - rather, this top has subtle embellishments. From far away, you can tell that this is not a simple black tank. The style has a racerback fit, and the bow on the right side is lacy and 
elegant. Highly recommend this tank, it can be dressed up or casual.  

Garage's huge selection of fantastic finds will make great gifts for yourself or loved ones! You can shop with them online or visit one of their stores.

Lush Pow Wow Lip Scrub+ Latte Lip Tint

Pow Wow Lip Scrub c/o Lush
$8.95
25g
This has to be my favorite lip product of the season! This is my #1 Lip Product to recommend as a gift for yourself of a loved one for the holidays. The color is so festive and fun.
I always find during the winter I find my lips getting more dry and chapped. This takes care of that problem and is fun at the same time.
"This bright green scrub has organic jojoba oil and organic rose hip oil to moisturize and soothe sore, chapped lips. " ... "caffeine powder, known for its stimulating properties, to keep you alert and ready for action! " 
The scent is so delicious, and the exfoliating qualities are terrific. I really like the idea of it being popping candy as well - it makes me want to use this all the time. What more can you ask for from a product that is healthy, gives great results, and is fun in applying? It smells and tastes great! 


(There is also a great video below the link that tells you more about the product!) 

To accompany that product The Latte Lip Scrub is fantastic after the Pow Wow Lip Scrub
Latte Lip Tint
$6.95
10 g
A really great product, and terrific size for any occasion. I really like this size because it can fit in a small clutch on a night out. The smell is scrumptious and the tint is suitable for everyone. The application is easy and there is no mess. I often find that some lip product are sticky, but this slides on great and leaves nothing on your fingers. 
"Powdered coffee, icing sugar and vanilla give this tint a creamy, latte flavor to compliment the colour"
It gives a touch of shine and is great for a more modest look or a reapplication during the night. 
I highly recommend these products from Lush.
