On Thursday night I went to the Christmas party for Social Diary, an industry website for media and events. Every year it has an awesome dress-up theme and this year it was Wedding Of The Year. You could come as anything related to weddings or marriage. I had sent my RSVP to attend long before I became sick but when it came to the day I wasn’t feeling too well. I was determined to still go because being a full-time blogger means I work alone in my home …. there is no other Christmas party for me!

Coming up with a costume last minute was not ideal. The only thing wedding related I had was my two bridesmaid dresses from the weddings I attended earlier this year. I decided I would go as a trashy bridesmaid (or in Australian terms, a bogan bridesmaid). I am not a makeup artist by any means so I had no idea how I was going to make myself trashy, but after looking up some Google images I felt I had an idea of what to do.

I decided on my pink one-shoulder maxi bridesmaid dress with knee-high black boots and chunky heart shaped plastic rings. I took a packet of gum with me to chew loudly and I borrowed a packet of cigarettes from a friend and put them in my shoulder strap. Now I am going to share how I completed my trashy bridesmaid look with makeup, hair and nails.

The happiest time of the year is here!!! No, I don’t mean Christmas (duh, it is July). I mean the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

AND you get a chance at buying next seasons fashion and beauty releases early. AND a whole bunch of beauty brands make EXCLUSIVE products just for this sale.

After tempting you yesterdays with the newest collections from M.A.C Cosmetics, I want to focus a little more on the one that has left me daydreaming, Glitter & Ice.

The first thing that really stood out to me about this collection is the obvious White packaging. I think it looks superb and plays into the collections winter theme perfectly.

Today I am showing you two of the Mineralize Eyeshadows and one of the new Dazzleglass releases.

See the entire Glitter & Ice Collection

Mineralize Eyeshadow

AU $42 / US $19.50 from November 2011

Sad confession, I have never owned a M.A.C Cosmetics Mineralize eyeshadow before. I have wanted one for as long as I can remember, but my luck at finding the colours I want hasn’t been great. Actually, it hasn’t happened at all. I am always too late to the party!

It may only be October but we all know Christmas will sneak up on us, like it does every year. In the beauty world, all the christmas gift sets start to appear late October, so you will start to see a lot of online and print talking about the new releases. Personally, I wanted to share these images with you as soon as I saw them. So excited!!

First up, I am going to show you M.A.C Cosmetics because it is the brand I have most recently fallen in love with. Yes, I am one of those sad people who are now addicted to M.A.C. BUT, if you really knew me, you would know that eventually I will become addicted to any beauty brand. It is a sickness.

Anyway … on with the show. First up we have Glitter & Ice. Pop over to today’s other posts for Ice Parade and the Dazzlesphere! collections.

I will share with you individual images and more details very soon. For now, enjoy this snippet.
