The Winter Palace

New York City is the place to be around this time of year. My favorite part are the window displays. This year, Saks Fifth Avenue had displays of the six icy wonders of the world and the seventh being the Winter Palace building at Saks Fifth Avenue in lights above the face of the building.

  1. The Winter Palace at Saks Fifth Avenue
  2. The Great Barrier Reef
  3. The Icy Eiffel Tower
  4. The Sub-Zero Sphinx
  5. The Frosty Taj Mahal
  6. The Great Wintry Wall of China
  7. The Ice-Cold Colosseum

Each display portrayed some kind of icon in this generation. I love the Marchesa Bridal and all the details that went into each window. Don’t miss out on the light show at Saks if you’re there!

Keep on sparkling, xo!

Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday loves! I’ve been into a lot of lip products and lately, I’ve been into glosses. I was on the hunt for the longest time for the perfect nude shade for my skin tone and I finally found a few favorites. My savior for the winter is EOS lip balm and also Maybelline’s baby lips. Although, I do prefer the EOS balm rather than the baby lips just because I feel that it’s more moist and smooth to apply. I usually apply my EOS as a base before I apply anything on my lips. 10937666_10152540928881817_2030445843_n

As for the glosses, my two current favorites are Snow Pink by Revlon and MAC’s Mineralize Glass Modest. If you’re looking for a sheer gloss with a tiny bit of sparkle and shine, I recommend Snow Pink! I try to stay away from glitter and sparkle on my lips so when I discovered Snow Pink, I fell in love. The modest is more of a heavy, nude gloss with shine. It’s nothing too crazy but I love it for a nude shade that matches my skin tone.

What are your favorites this season?

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! Keep on sparkling, xo!

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow..

As the snow is falling, I’m wrapped under a blanket with a nice cup of hot chocolate and it is definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas! As crazy as it sounds, winter is one of my favorite seasons. I love dressing up in layers and wearing scarfs and boots. Getting ready for the holiday parties is the best part! Here’s a dress I absolutely adore for the holidays!

This past week the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show finally aired! I can’t wait to upload my favorites from that night but Snow Angels was definitely my favorite segment. It left me speechless!

‘Tis the Season. Keep on sparkling! Xo
