Glitter & Garlands: Holiday Accessories

If you celebrate Christmas, maybe you add tinsel to your tree to mimic the way moonlight twinkles on the snow outside. It’s fun to add “tinsel” to yourself during the holiday season as well.
I am planning to wear a beaded mesh scarf (from Monroe & Main) to our Christmas Eve party.
The glittering strands of silver beads add a hint of exotic sparkle to the woven macramé scarf.
I don’t usually paint my fingernails in anything beyond a basic pink, but I might try nail art with some rhinestones this year.
I also am impressed when women can pull off a punch of vivid color on their eyes. Cover Girl’s flashy Flamed Out eye shadow pots look fun!
How do you add sparkle or glitter to your holiday look?


Kiss® Ever PRO Lashes Starter Kit

For my latest review, I tested the Kiss® Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit. Each kit includes one pair of eyelashes, one adhesive,and one PRO lash applicator. I had actually never tried applying eyelashes before, so I was a true novice. The directions on the package were simple to follow. You can also see a demo at if you want more tips for “flawless application.”
I wore the lashes to an evening party and felt especially glamorous! The lashes–made from 100% human hair–are a fun way to enhance your natural beauty.

Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit retails for $4.99 and is available at Walgreens stores nationwide.

Kiss Nail Dress

As part of my participation in the Influenster community

I received the fabulous “Love VoxBox
You can see my Pinterest board of the contents at:

and read my previous post about the box (see blog archives in sidebar)…

One of the items was a new fashion accessory:
Kiss Nail Dress —the ultimate in nail fashion!
Kiss Nail Dress is a sticker; it is applied in a similar fashion to polish strips.
These nail stickers are easy to use and meant to last up to 10 days.
The good thing is that you can put them on in minutes and take them off in seconds without remover. The stickers fit all nails – tips and toes.
They come in lots of exciting colors & patterns. Some even have 3-dimensional jewels or glittery designs that make them unique, and you can mix-and-match if you’re brave!

I received the sample in a primal leopard print “Sexy” design.
I usually paint my toes but not my hands, so it was fun using these and getting lots of compliments on my exotic kitty nails!
These nail stickers would look fantastic with a leopard print dress (like this one from Karen Kane)

or a leopard print shoulder clutch like the Keegan quilted shoulder clutch found here:
