Today, I'm happy to present Mont Bleu*, a Czech company dedicated to delivering just the right gift for every female who seems to have everything.

Choco w/ Raspberry Filling NAILS

Salut mes amis!! Today's nail post is all about chocolate and raspberries i. e. brown and pink -- one of my favorite color combos.

Simply Living!!

Hello old friends and new!! Today's post is a personal update of my life and whereabouts during the last month or so. You might have noticed that my beauty posts have been less frequent than usual and this is simply due to the precedence of my personal happenings that are outside of my blogging world. This month has been dense, but fast-paced: I've hosted friends from Paris, went out-of-state, worked on makeup for several weddings and even blogged a little... :)) I won't go into all the details, but I will show you some snippets from my travels!! Last week, I was away in Pennsylvania, accompanying LeeLee (my beau) on his work-related affairs. Due to the nature of his business, we often spend a lot of time in PA, so whenever we get a moment to escape, we like to explore our surroundings. In the pic above, I'm joyfully taking in the fresh country air aboard an old Amish wagon in Lancaster. Visiting the Amish in Lancaster County, PA was one of my favorite experiences in a long time, and today I'm sharing some of its picturesque beauty.

So, hop on the wagon and come along!
