I really love a classic smokey eye that is bold but not over-the-top. Like a red lip, the smokey eye just elevates a look and adds major glamour points. I am always in search of a great eye shadow palette and if you are like me, you would love the Urban Decay Vices Palette available for 500 perk points at Sephora. While the box claims that it is an exclusive set of their coveted Vice palettes, I see it as a travel size of the Urban Decay Naked Smokey. This little sample kit is packed with smokey goodness and features three of Urban Decays' most popular items. So run to Sephora now before this gift is gone and try out a velvety statement eye to end the year in a smoking hot way.
One of those events you will probably attend the most this holiday season will probably be the cocktail party! Ranging anywhere from a swanky society soiree, work function at a fancy restaurant or even a low-key gathering at a friend’s house (1), cocktail hour will definitely take up most of your December schedule. Wherever such a party is held, dressing for an occasion that really has no dress code can be difficult. For the most part, we can assume that these types of events are “dressy casual” where you should dress up a bit from the usual. To negate the event that you may be dramatically over or under dressed (2), I suggest the classic LBD or Little Black Dress but spiced up with a little green to achieve just the right amount of envy from the crowd.
Searching for the perfect gift this holiday season? Look no further, may I suggest gifting your loved ones with a brand new phone. You cannot go wrong with a phone because it is something that everyone can use and will need! It is both luxurious and practical and will show that you are not only a pragmatic gifter but also a smart one. A special present that can do no wrong, surprise him or her with a dazzling iPhone 6s in Rose Gold under the tree this year.

Perfect for an office party, this look will aptly surround you with the right attention and let you sparkle brightly through the night.
Today I want to share with you a beautiful look by the lake featuring the classic plaid. My love affair with plaid has been long and deep - it has been my go-to print for as long as I can remember. From 90's grunge Nirvana to a casual weekend staple, plaid is "the ultimate style chameleon" (1). Not confined to any single group, aesthetic, or era, plaid comes in endless varieties that make this style timeless yet trendy. A print that keeps us coming back for more each season (2), it reinvents itself time and time again to earn a place deep in our hearts.
