Last Minute Shopping: Tarte's Vanity Palette

Do you have all your holiday shopping done? Not me! The weather in these parts has made me afraid to drive so I decided to order everything online this year. I like instant gratification so I normally do my shopping the old fashioned way but this year that’s the way it has to be. One thing I’m ordering for the holidays is this Tarte Limited Edition Vanity Palette.

Tarte Limited Edition Vanity Palette

Tarte’s new Vanity palette may look like last year’s We Wish You Wealth palette but this one is much better. I don’t know about you but I barely touch that back part of the palette. This palette is new and improved and you’re bound to use every part of it. It’s got the same gorgeous faux finish as the Purse Your Lips Lipgloss Clutch and the same number of eyeshadows and lipglosses as last year. What’s different in this palette is the addition of a bronzer, highlighter and 4 blushes. I love the change in this palette, it makes it a much more usable.

Wouldn’t it be great if all you need to grab to do your makeup was one piece? Tarte’s Vanity palette helps you do just that. This is going to be perfect for my Secret Santa gift :)

It's Official, I'm Obsessed with Twilight

I swear, I have good intentions when I say things here… I really, really do. I intend to do the things I say but then life gets in the way. :) Something happened over Thanksgiving weekend though, I got some news that was a little unpleasant so I decided to distract myself and my distraction was reading Twilight. Oh my god, this one hell of a distraction!

Twilight: Edward's Crooked SmileI’m normally a slow reader but since that weekend, I’ve spent all of my free time reading the series. I’m a little more than halfway through Breaking Dawn now and all I can think about at work is going home to read! I think it’s safe to say I’m officially obsessed with Twilight now. I’ve put the books aside long enough to see the movie a few times, browse some websites and begin obsessing over Robert Pattinson. I think I only like him in character though. I mean, how could you not? Look at this smile… After I’m done reading Breaking Dawn, I’m moving on to Midnight Sun but that’s not that long in comparison. ;)

So the moral of this story is things will be back to normal here very soon. So bear with me, ok? :) Things will get back to normal soon and we’ll be resuming the rest of the giveaways on Monday, now extending into January to make up for the delay this new obsession has caused. Anyone else obsessed with Twilight? Let’s obsess together. :)
