Pink and Gold Wedding Fabric Garland


My wedding colors are Pink and Gold and I am just crazy about these DIY fabric garlands. They are so easy and inexpensive to make. I think this will look nice in the barn at the reception or behind us as a backdrop at the ceremony.  (Ferdinand really likes it too.)


Here I have 4 different fabrics of different types and colors. There is a pink chiffon, a gold lame, a cream lining, and a glitter gold and ivory chiffon. I used natural twine as my support and I really like how that came out.

Pink Lips and Blue Nails – woo!


It is almost March and I am in SPRING mode 🙂 Had to stop at the store on my way home from work this Friday afternoon to pick up a hot new lipstick in Flamingo Pink from L’Oreal, along with their Pink lipliner. Before I could leave, I HAD to pick up this hot pastel nail polish from Essie called Bikini So Teeny. I love them both together! Especially with my spring floral sweater. 🙂

Hello fellow make-up junkies! I want to pick up a translucent powder as I have switched to a liquid foundation but want that setting power. I could use some feedback.

Thanks!! PinkPiper

Fe-Blog-Uary Day 15 – Highlighter Smackdown

A great highlighter test! As much as I love Benefit, their highlighter shows up dark orange on my fare skin in certain lights so I cannot use it. Does anyone have a favorite highlighter they would like to share?


When it comes to highlighters, I am not seen without it these days! It’s a life saver during the winter when your skin looks full and dry and you need a pick-me-up on your face so that you don’t look like you’re drying up rapido!


However, is it worth getting a high end highlighter when there are so many other alternatives in the drug store? Let’s take a look at two of of my favourite highlighters which I use alternatively everyday to see which one comes out on top!


Sleek Contour Kit in ‘Medium’ £6.49 (0.48oz)
When I first bought this product from Sleek, I got it for the brown powder for contouring however, I’ve since ditched the other side and have completely fallen in love with the highlighter that comes with it! An amazing goldy-nude powder highlighter which is so buttery and smooth to apply, that it makes your…

The Hats of Downton Abbey, Series 4

A great blog entry about the hats of Downton! Love the 20s, don’t you?


We’re over halfway through the fourth series here in the states, and you know what that means? It’s time for our next installment of my ongoing series “The Hats of Downton Abbey.” (Original here, men’s hats here, season three here.)

We’re thoroughly into the 1920s now, and the hats are morphing to match.


Yup. Hats are out in the Jazz age. Not to say women aren’t wearing them to go out–they are. But the new big thing is the headband.
