News! Well, not news actually since you have probably noticed that I haven’t been posting much lately. I tweeted the other day that I had some great material and lovely inspiration but l –l <—–that much ambition. It’s true that I’ve been incredibly busy at work, plenty of personal commitments and the weather has been super unseasonably wonderful. I think I’m also suffering the effects vacation-itis. Yes, if you’ve been following me on Twitter you know that I am leaving this week for my favorite place in the whole world (so far)…New Orleans. From now until whenever I am back and ready to post again you won’t be seeing much from me (at least on my blog). I do, however, have a lovely guest blogger coming in next week that many of you know, but some of you may not. She’s got some exciting things to share with you so look forward to that.

I said “acquisitions” didn’t I? Well then…here is a preview of some of the things I’ve got going right now :)

My first try of Paul & Joe

The legendary Lancôme Erika F…does it live up to the hype??? I also have a few other Lancôme goodies to share with you…some exciting things for eyes! :)

NARS & MAC!! Was lucky to have found the Mega Metal Shadows at my local CCO recently..Unflappable is finally mine! :)

Speaking of finally mine…I did manage to get my hands on my long coveted Estée Lauder Modern Mercury Gelee…and a few other more recently lusted after items.

Hair tutorial? Going to try and get one done for this 5 minute hair! (bare-faced! I have eye and lip products on but NOTHING on my skin…feels good too!). We’ve gotten a new video camera so I *might* even attempt to make this into a video!

We always save the best for last don’t we? Some new Burberry items! You can find my other Burberry posts by clicking here, here, here and here. Oh, and here. If you can’t tell, I’m *kind of* obsessed with the brand. :) And that lipstick? Yeah, that was FREE. Yes, I mean $0.00!! I announced on Twitter two weeks ago that Burberry was doing a GWP (Gift With Purchase) at Nordstrom and did they deliver! Bummed you missed out? Make sure to follow me on Twitter because that’s where I announce this super-important-limited-time-offer stuff. ;) That’s Gold Trench, Almond and Tangerine for those wondering. The lipstick? Well, you’ll soon find out.

I also have some great color-themes, another history of makeup lesson, some skincare, Dior and Chanel reviews and maybe even a MAC palettes post coming soon, but for now I bid you Adieu, Adios and all those other fare-thee-well vibes…I’m off to go eat.  :)

    I love your hair like that! And how did you manage to get your hands on Modern Mercury?! So jealous :) Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the NARS TM!

  4. Michelle says:

    The paul&joe items look so charming! it’s the first time i’m hearing about this makeup brand!

  5. Ok wow, so much to say here I don’t even know where to start. First of all, so I make sure not to forget, hope you have a fabulous time in New Orleans! Also, am looking forward to your hair tutorial and reviews of all those yummy looking makeup products. Ok, not yummy per se, I think I got sidetracked by that menu in the last picture o.O

    And Erika F! Can’t believe you got your hands on that one. Part of me hopes it lives up to the hype because it’s practically a legend in my mind, and the other part is hoping it’s terrible because I’ve long since given up chasing after it. But you know, the part that hopes it’s good is outweighing the other part, because I wouldn’t want you to have tracked that down only to find it’s bad!

  13. Andrea says:

    In that very last Burberry link you posted, in the photo at the bottom, are you also wearing the blush and eyeshadow shades you swatched above?

    • Danielle says:

      I’m SO sorry for the late response- The eyeshadow is Illamasqua’s pigment in Furore but I’m wearing the lipstick and Blush in the photo. :)
