Since I cannot see my earrings it is time for a haircut!  And though my stylist keeps my appts ready for a year sometimes I get antsy & have to go in early.

This time of year encourages me to organize - which after the holidays is desperately needed.  To be honest, I have not unpacked several of my beauty purchases (darn those Ulta & Sephora sales!!
I have this corner armoire in my dressing room which is not completely full - so I need to organize it so more 'stuff' fits inside!
I am not sure I look forward to this task - but make me do it anyway!!!

I had to have Laura Mercier Matte to Metal Holiday Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection - these are 6 eye color sticks that go on smoothly and have super staying power - which will be perfect for the heat we endure here in the South during the summer.
   
Rose Gold - Amethyst - Khaki  

                           (From top)         Sugar Frost - Aubergine - Ganache
This set has sold out in some places so I am thrilled I ordered these during the holiday sales.  I will probably mostly use these for the eye crease accent which will last longer than powder.  I won't use all of these but that's ok.

I am still in love with the Color(s) of the year ~ Rose Quartz & Serenity :

How beautiful is the new blush from Tarte - "Celebrated"
This is a lovely nod to Pantone's Color of the Year - it's a soft pink nude that is definitely coming home with me and I am not much of a blush person!  This color will be useful all year long especially for fair skin, as you can build it up.

 If you enjoy cross stitch look at my other blog, http://mimisprimroselane.blogspot.com
as I am downsizing and if you are a collector there are great charts & linens for sale.  I miss stitching and rarely pick up a needle any longer because the migraines are just too consuming.  I want my pretties to go to good homes.

Pink isn't just a color ~ it's an attitude!
