Holiday Dress-Up

This year I have two extra events to attend than I normally do so I’ve been trying to plan ahead in terms of outfits I’d like to wear.  Two family Christmas parties, a brunch meetup, and a business dinner.  Another issue is that New York is awfully cold this time of year.  My inspiration began with a cute crewneck sweater with an unexpected type of skirt pairing.  The office holiday party is more formal so I went with another option.  See photos for what I came up with after shopping my closet.

My London Cosmetic Haul

Before venturing to the United Kingdom, I fantasized about what cosmetic brands I wanted to buy.  Besides learning about a country or culture through its food & drink, I learn via its cosmetics.  The obvious choices were brands that were not readily available in the U.S.  I had narrowed the list down to Sleek, Gosh, Me Me Me, and Barry M.

It was off to London’s shopping district!  First stop, Boots =)  I ended up buying a cute owl necklace and hair scrunchy; surprising not one makeup item.  A few Boots associates were kind enough to point me to the right direction.  It was really SuperDrug that I wanted.  The next morning I happily trotted into Holborn’s SuperDrug and shopped to my heart’s content.  This was what I bought…
