Peach Gelato

•••
I used to go to a great italian restaurant (Tuscany in Oakbrook) when I was in Chicago and they had the best peach gelato that I've ever tasted. They'd make it and serve it inside a frozen peach. Yum. I guess I'm thinking about gelato because it's been cold here in Tampa! When I say cold, it's been 45 or so on my drive to work. That's cold for me! That's one[...]

Lit from Within

•••
The products used in this look all have one thing in common to me... they have a lit from within glow about them. The eye shadow I used in this look is TheBalm's Jet-Setting Jennifer, which is a pale gold that I think really glows. Evil Shades Heartstopper is a metallic hot pink, which I love. MAC Trace Gold blush gives me a bit of a healthy glow to my cheek[...]

Honeyed Absinthe

I even included a shot of my outfit :) Care to share what you got for Christmas? Ray and Dave bought me a Canon Rebel eos t31 600d. I get to learn about the wonderful wor[...]

Beauty Blog Advent Calendar - Hot Cocoa Cookies

I saw this recipe online for Snackurday Hot Cocoa Cookies and thought it would be a nice change from my typical red velvet chocolate chip cookies. Ray and I ended up making these together, and really, they spurred me on to experiment and make the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Ingredients: 1 cup fleischmann's olive oil spread with sea salt [...]
