I adore the golden bronze and plum red shades! It’s quite unique and very festive, so fitting for an updated holiday look. The taupe and light pink shades are very easy colors to play with for simpler everyday makeup, so this palette can actually take you all the way to Spring. So when you think about it, it’s worth the splurge.
The packaging and the gorgeous quilted double C stamp. Love.
Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick in No. 39 La Somptueuse.
It’s exactly what is says it is. Velvety. This deep wine red shade is beautiful. It’s the sweeter, less vampy sister of L’impatiente ( which made me look like a corpse). But hey, more power to all those who can carry black red lipsticks, because I can’t!
Chanel Le Vernis in 637 Malice.
In my opinion, this is the star of this Holiday collection. I cannot get enough of this nail color! It’s the most elegant burgundy hue with bits of shimmer. I do keep a small collection of Chanel polishes and I have to say, this has got to be the winner! I’m seriously considering buying two more bottles!
'Tis the season when the temperature finally drops. Loving it.

With two cups of Nespresso Roma in our sweaters, (me in heels) and Bossa Nova music playing in the background, we talked about our year.
That makes for a perfect Thanksgiving dinner for two.
My husband and I celebrate Thanksgiving every year together ( relative to which timezone we are in). Just the two of us. Over the last ten years it has become a very important occasion to us. I find so much love in giving thanks together over a meal in your own home.
I have so much to be thankful for. It’s been almost a year since I randomly decided to start this blog simply because I love experimenting with my camera. And here we are.
I am so grateful for this journey.
Thank you for reading. I appreciate it more than you’ll ever know.
