january faves by beautyparler on Polyvore.
This month my favourites are a few oldies revisited, a few newbies like the SKII Facial Treatment Essence (with a detailed review to follow shortly), Burt's Bees Super Shiny lipgloss and Burt's Bees Daily Cleanser, and Yves Rocher Fatigue Cleanser. My ultimate shampoo (one of my faveourites of all time) is Garnier Ultra Suave Shampoo with Henna & blackberry vinegar (multiple repurchase but not sold in North America) and the Ultra Suave conditioner is a newbie (review of both to follow). Lots of cleansers! But they all serve their purpose, either as my morning (Burt's Bees) or evening cleanser (Yves Rocher) and one as a makeup-remover (FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil).
Crest Expression toothpaste in Cinnamon
Nars Lovejoy blush (an old fave)
Any beauty favourites for the month of January?

“It’s refreshing to see a respected but relatively low-profile actress like Emmanuelle top the Top 99, while many of the tabloid regulars didn’t even make it,” comments James Bassil, editor-in-chief of AskMen.com. “To me, this outcome really reflects what is unique about our annual list: that it is a real indicator of the kind of women that men want, rather than simply those ones that we are continuously exposed to.”Chriqui who is first generation Canadian, her parents are originally from Morocco, is from Montreal. She is best known for her role in Entourage.
The top 10 of the 99 Most Desirable Women are;
Anyone else notice, that except for Miller, brunettes top the list!

I'll admit I'm more excited to see the Sex and the City 2 movie for its fashion, anyone else? Although I have a feeling I'll like this part better than the first movie. Did anyone else notice the cupcakes & Carrie in a catering/waitress uniform? Hmm maybe event planning or catering business. Discuss!

Have you purchased any items on sale lately? Any really good deals?
NewYear'sEveLook by beautyparler featuring French Connection
Bonjour! And welcome to 2010, hope you all had a great New Year's Eve and are looking forward to 2010! I haven't created any New Year resolutions and not sure if I will as I like to think that they can be created anytime throughout the year. But, I have a few goals that I'm sorting out... First, I'd like to thank you all for visiting and supporting my blog and welcome new readers as well:) Second, I'd love to know what you would like to read/view more of on my blog. So please leave me suggestions! Above is my look from New Year's Eve...the FCUK outfit is the exact jumpsuit I wore and the accessories are similar as I couldn't find exact items on the net. As for makeup, I finally purchased the Chanel ProLumiere (so far loving it, review to follow soon), also used Lise Watier glitter (awesome glitter in a gel-base that goes on smoothly over black liner), and my sweetheart bought me Dior Show mascara (review to follow).
What did everyone else wear on NYE? Any New Year's resolutions? Do share!
