here ye here ye

have you ever tinsel'd a tree?

i was state tinsel champion back in 1956. 

it's not particularly fun, nor is it particularly fun to pick up rogue strands of tinsel every day, but it sure is beautiful. 

my cats are less than impressed which is surprising but a welcome relief. 

do you tinsel?


coconut cream pie french toast you say? christmas morning you say? 


 the perfect christmas dinner: porcini rubbed rib roast with horseradish cream. 


this eyeshadow stick is all that and a bag of coconut cream pie french toast. 

you have to be a bit heavy handed with it but once you build up the color it's awesome. 

it doesn't smudge or gunk or settle into the crease which is what makes it so awesome. 

 this stuff stays put until you wash it off.

perfect NYE eye makeup. just curl those lashes and add a healthy dose of mascara and your eyes are done.

i have it in au revoir (shown) a soft, pewter shimmer.

i want them all but next in line will be three shakes, a milk chocolate shimmer.  


it's time. which do i choose?

this article enlightened me a little.

i'm leaning 13" macbook pro with retina display.
