This is my Christmas Wish List for all things glittery. Too Faced Sweet Dreams has four collections to choose from. The graphics on the pallettes are so beautiful with swans, white peacocks, pink bunnies and butterflies accented in glitter. The three travel size eyemakeup brushes come in a little metal tube that looks like Laduree designed it. I'm a sucker for packaging but Too Faced is also a very decent product and I enjoy their shadows as much as the more expensive brands. The last three photos are from Trina Tarintino's collection at Sephora, pink shimmer dust that poofs on like a perfume and her pearl glow primer to wear under your makeup are the top of my list for the holidays.

Woke up this morning wishing I could have coffee and a croissant at a cafe in Paris. Really, morning is my favorite part of the day. Especially when you have nothing in particular to do. You can just sit quietly, watching wealthy people walk their dog with their "man" servant behind them waiting to scoop the poopies when it should be necessary. French aren't normally into picking up after their pups, but I did witness a manservant doing just that. Along with people walking briskly to catch the Metro or riding their bike with little baskets on the front, trying to get to work on time. The flow of Parisiennes provide a steady stream of entertainment and curiosity. Where do they work? How do they live? And why do they get to drink rose flavored Elixia Lemonade at Fouchons whenever they want and we don't? Paris fascinates me. Especially standing in the baguette aisle at the grocer and watching them handle the crust of each loaf, pulling it close to their ear, yes, with their bare hands, in order to listen for that perfect crunch. I once watched someone pick up five different loaves until they "heard" the perfect one.
Holidays are around the corner. The shops are already starting to display Christmas decor. Here is my dream collection of handbags that I wish I could carry with me to holiday parties.
From top to bottom: Valentino Crystal Feather Clutch, Mary Norton Pink Ostrich Clutch, Valentino Silver Bow Clutch, Christian Louboutin Pink Satin Bow Clutch, Franchi Gold Metalic Cluch, Christian Louboutin Rabbit Fur and pictured last is Prada Pink Fox Fur Clutch.
