Any excuse for glitter!

23 Dec

Hi Glamourites,

Hope everyone is finishing up their last minute Christmas shopping and errands….I know I still have a few little gifts to still buy! With all the many holiday parties happening you have many opportunities to get creative and experiment with make-up techniques. Hope these are inspiring to you and you play up the glam this Christmas   xx Glamour Planner

Pair a bold {festive} red lip with a clean silver eyeshadow and black eyeliner. It’ll look like you just walked off the red carpet!HolidaysMakeUp5I am in love with these eye make-up, the shading from silver, gold, bronze and brown. Totally EYE catching!

This look gives the idea of being natural but accenting on facial features, stunningly beautiful. HolidaysMakeUp4

If you want to spend some extra time and get really detailed you can buy jewels and the proper eyelash glue to add to your sparkly touches! HolidaysMakeUp2

Holiday DECOR

Hi Glamouirtes!

Hope everyone is getting prepared for Christmas…now only 6 days away!! Here are some of my favourite holiday decorating inspirations to add some festive cheer to your house. Transforming your home with those cozy touches completes Christmas for me; it brings joy and some sparkle and you can’t help but just smile! Let me know what some of your decor traditions are this time of year  xx Glamour Planner

Poinsettias, poinsettias, poinsettias! The most festive and bright floral plant can create an instantly more dramatic entrance way. These seasonal plants can also been placed around the house for a pop of colour.holidaydecor2

Christmas bulbs are not just for the tree….you can use a thick white string and hang them from your ceiling or chandelier or, as shown here, hang them from in clusters using ribbon. holidaydecor4

Garland or fresh leaf branches from the outdoors make a beautiful display on your mantle, counter, or as part of a table centrepiece. Grab some pine cones, berries or interesting things you may find to add colour and a festive flair.

Taking a wreath {doesn’t necessarily have to be red} add a leather belt or fabric around for a look-a-like Santa belt! Cute for a front door entrance.

A fun and easy way to create centrepieces or decorations is by putting bulbs, beads, cranberries, or any other objects into a vase!holidaydecor6

Another vase centrepiece example – a gold/silver theme. holidaydecor5

Apologies

17 Dec

Hello Glamourites!

First, a big apology for my delay and absence in posting anything the last little while, I was completely taken over by school recently with final projects and exams. It is now Christmas holidays and I will finally have time to relax and spend more time on the blog! Here are a few topics I will be touching on this week to prep for Christmas and this festive season.     xx Glamour Planner

Baking! It’s not the holidays unless you have sugary, sweet, tasty treats to snack on. These Gingerbread doughnuts are ones I will be trying shortly. More recipe suggestions to come!
