Ah, New Years Eve time. The time when hopeful resolutions are made and excitement for what is to come is at its peak. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it most importantly is the time when you can wear a sparkly dress and dance your face off! There were a million dresses I found when creating this post, that I would love to own. You can't sit at home in a fancy dress year round, can you? Or can  you...

Topshop's gorgeous limited edition dress!

HGTV Celebrity Holiday Homes

HGTV has this holiday special every year where 3 designers go to 3 different celebrity homes and decorate for the holidays. The interior designers are working with some high priced homes obviously. Best of all, they don't seem to have a budget, so the designs are just phenomenal.

Christmas MUST-HAVES:

Christmas time is upon us. Come fall, I look so forward to this time of year. The decorations, the food, Christmas shopping, and the cold weather. I absolutely love it all. I'm not going to lie though, once Christmas gets here, I'm ready for it to go ahead and get behind us. It can be stressful picking out presents for people, not to mention the hustle and bustle of the stores and what not. Still, my love for a comfy holiday season never wavers.

Today is Christmas Eve! We already celebrated due to the fact our family is spread out and couldn't all be in one place on Christmas Day. To those who have not celebrated yet, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

The Ultimate Foundation Showdown

"Searching for a boy in high school is as useless as searching for meaning in a Pauly Shore movie."  - Clueless
Well, that is how I feel when searching for the perfect foundation. I've tried so many and the quest continues. The NYX HD Studio Powder Foundation in Natural I got a couple of weeks ago from Ulta, turned out to not be a good color fit.

So, then I decided to try the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation. Kat's foundation is very thick and definitely full coverage. However, I think the fact that it is so thick, it clogged my pores and caused me to break out. I don't know if maybe it's because my skin is so sensitive or that it really is because the foundation is so thick and my skin just couldn't breathe. I think for most days I should wear a lighter coverage foundation, and if there is an event or night out, the full coverage foundation is the way to go.

Since returning the Kat Von D foundation, I decided to stick with the tried and true CoverGirl Ultimate Finish liquid powder foundation. I've used it before and really liked it, so I decided to just stick with what I know!

Neiman Marcus Meets Target Meets Me

Neiman Marcus/Target: More than 50 gorgeous gifts

I finally made it to Target to check out the Neiman Marcus & Target collab.  I did see two cute tops that I'm going to be keeping my eye on for when they,  hopefully, go on sale.

Lela Rose top $69.99

Rag and Bone cardigan $69.99

The Alice and Olivia bike is quite the eye catcher! It's also going for almost $500.

I love the Robert Rodriquez dress. Must find a place to wear it to.
These are Marchesa little girl dresses. I'd totally buy these if they were in my size.

Strawberry Margarita

This is the nail salon I tried Sunday. They had a gorgeous hall with the most perfect looking Christmas tree at the end. The ceiling had a pretty realistic looking sky painted on it. Lovely columns, separated the manicure and pedicure section. My color change still only cost $7!

I've been wearing dark polish lately but decided to take things down a notch this time.
