With a unique clutch case and a large mirror on one side included, this palette is ideal for holiday party touch-ups or gift giving.  

Here is a photo of me wearing some of the colors:
On my eyes are a dark beige in the crease followed by a dark brown in the transition and a sparkly copper on the lids. The rest of my products coordinate with the eye. 

Below are swatches of the eye shadows in the palette:  

You can see how pigmented almost all of them are. A couple of them are lighter in pigment but are heavy on sparkle. I would use those over the more pigmented eye shadows. Or use as a light wash on the lids or under the brow.

Urban Decay Vice Metal Meets Matte Lipstick Palette
$35.00

Are you a Vice Lipstick junkie like myself? Then hang on, this year Urban Decay has a new and even more gorgeous limited-edition palette of Vice Lipstick that is metallic and matte together. This palette will take you from nighttime to the next morning easily. It features 12 addictive shades from the massive lipstick collection and six of them are new! You get dark, sultry hues to fail safe neutrals and bold brights. The shades are all organized by finish and color family, metallized shades are on the top row and the coordinating matte shades are on the bottom row. Start with a metallized shade for your night out. Then, when that night rolls into the next morning and you did not made it back home, channel your alter ego by switching to the corresponding matte shade for daytime and roll into work looking hot. This palette contains new shades like Spark (bright red with tonal shimmer), Banger (deep oxblood), and Shallow (lavender). It also contains cult-favorite shades like Big Bang (bright pink sparkle) and Backtalk (mauve-nude pink), this palette has all your needs covered.

What is great is this is perfect for travel too. It includes a retractable lip brush.  This super-sleek palette was made to experiment with. Engineered with real life in mind, the palette makes it super easy to apply lipstick on the go. They have designed the wells with a special stair-step effect that is perfect for wiping any excess lipstick off of the brush, thus keeping the lipstick in the compartment and not all over the palette. When you are done applying, flip the attached cover on top of the lipstick wells to keep the shades protected and the compact free of any mess. The palette is practical and beautiful. People will ooh and ah over it when you pull it out of your makeup bag. The luxurious case has a deep purple lid with a metallized gunmetal base. 

In this palette is the exact Vice Lipstick formula that you expect, know and love. Urban Decay's proprietary Pigment Infusion System™  gives each shade its super-creamy texture, rich payoff and superior color dispersion. The Yummy Butter Blend comforts, hydrates and enhances, leaving lips soft and conditioned, never dry. 

The shades included in this palette are:
  • BANGER (Metallized): deep oxblood
  • AMULET (Metallized): metallic brick rose
  • FAST TALK (Metallized): mauve-nude pink
  • BIG BANG (Metallized): bright pink sparkle
  • MAD (Metallized): bright purple shimmer
  • SPARK (Metallized): bright red w/tonal shimmer
  • CSB (Comfort Matte): dark berry

  • BACKTALK (Comfort Matte): mauve-nude pink

My favorite shades are Amulet, Shallow, Mad, and Banger. Oh who am I kidding. I love the whole palette!

Below are swatches of the shades. I went from top to bottom together to show how closely each of the metallized and matte shades closely resemble each other, it's hard to see the metallic sparkle in the swatches:
(above, left to right: Banger, CSB, Amulet, Tame, Fast Talk, Backtalk, Big Bang, Double Team, Mad, Shallow, Spark and 714)

Holiday Gift Guide: J.T. Spencer Gifts #HolidayGiftGuide #JTSpencerGifts

(product photos courtesy of www.jtspencer.com)

J.T. Spencer is a finer purveyor of embroidered belts and other accessories from Richmond, Virginia. This business is well known for their quality and craftsmanship. I asked to have them in my Holiday Gift Guide because of this. They began with a dream of manufacturing high quality custom logo belts here in the United States that could be sold at high end golf and country clubs. The Original Embroidered Belt hit the market and quickly began to gain momentum with pro shops all across the country.  After establishing a strong foothold in the golf market J.T. Spencer forged a partnership with Peter Millar who made the company an official licensee of their brand and greatly expanded their customer base in the golf business domestically and abroad.  


In the many years that have passed since the beginning of the business, J.T. Spencer has expanded into a myriad of other industries.  Their custom business has grown to include yacht and athletic clubs, schools, companies and a variety of other affinity groups that want to show pride in their organization. Their items can be found at some of the finest universities and colleges all across America. With designs that cover everything from the time-honored American Flag to the quirky Beer Pong they make every effort to offer motifs on timeless and classically styled products that appeal to everyone.   

  










I have two gifts today that I want to share with you. The first gift is an old fashioned flask. The second is an embroidered key fob. 

This is a 6 oz. stainless steel flask with waxed canvas and full grain leather wrap permanently fixed around the flask. It is decorated with an embroidered green shamrock on the canvas. The flask fits perfectly into a pocket or a purse. Yes, you can be stylish and hold your vodka, gin or any other alcohol and keep it on the sly with a flask in your pocket or purse. Great to warm yourself up on cold days sitting at the soccer match.

This would make a great gift for just about anyone over 21 who likes to have a nip now and then. And hey, who doesn't?

Key Fob is $20.00, Monogramming is $18.00
Give your key ring a splash of color with one of J.T. Spencer's Key Fobs. They measure 3 inches long and are a perfect fit for pockets and purses. The fob is made of heavy brass and thick canvas and comes embroidered with a picture of an item. This one is a Labrador Retriever in black. To have your initials monogrammed is an extra $18.00.

SEPHORA: Service Has Gone Downhill..

I am hopping mad. On November 17, 2017 I placed an order with SEPHORA. I was never told there would be a delay. I kept waiting for my order to ship. Then I see that orders were being delayed due to an excessive volume of orders.

On November 27, 2017 I still had not received my order so I called and received a message saying they had too many calls, please call back later and they hung up on me. I mentioned on Facebook that I was having problems and was told by a friend that she too was having problems with an order. 

The next day I called back and finally reached someone.  I was told that I would not receive my order until, get this, December 5, 2017. That is 19 days past the day that I placed the order. 19 days. I honestly don’t think I ever want to place an order with SEPHORA ever again. I can get almost everything I want at other outlets. The only thing is that I was ordering some items I could not get elsewhere. I’m very, very frustrated with them and feel this is WAY too long for an online order in 2017!!!!

Don’t you? If you are also having problems with www.sephora.com, please let me know. 
Thank you.
Happy Holidays!

Holiday Gift Guide: Khortytsa Vodka #HolidayGiftGuide #KhortytsaVodka #KhorPlatinum #KhorHotHoneyPepper

(product photo courtesy of www.khor.com)



I was sent two kinds of Khortytsa Vodka to try for my Holiday Gift Guide. It is also called Khor Vodka. First, let me say that I absolutely love Vodka. It is my favorite alcoholic beverage. I could drink any flavor of it and just plain vodka will do in a pinch. I was sent Khortytsa Vodka, which comes from Ukraine. I was sent two kinds to try, Platinum and Hot Honey Pepper

Khor Platinum Vodka is made from durum wheat and corn. This is one of the few vodkas that uses the latest technology of platinum filtration and a unique system of special birch and alder-tree charcoal filters. Platinum filtration is a state of the art process that gives this vodka a clean, balanced, and soft finish. Thanks to an optimal balance of all ingredients this vodka is perfect for making cocktails. I made two cocktails with this vodka. Below I will give you the recipes. Award winning Khor Platinum is among the top three vodka brands in the world. It is five times distilled. This vodka is made from water sourced from artesian wells and undergoes a multi-layered filtration process using natural mineral filters made of organic schungite, alder tree charcoal filters and quartz sand. Khor Vodka Platinum is also one of the few vodkas in the world to under go an additonal platinum filtration process which lends to a soft and balanced finish. This vodka is perfectly smooth to be enjoyed neat or in a cocktail. 

Mrs. Palmer Cocktail
  • 2 oz. Khortytsa Platinum
  • 2 oz. Lemonade
  • 2 oz. Black Ice Tea
  • 2 Dash Lavender Bitters (I substituted regular bitters)
  • Collins glass
  • Build cocktail in glass and stir
  • Garnish with lemon wheel and lavender flower if you have it
Cranberry-Fuzzy Navel
  • 2 oz. Khortytsa Platinum
  • 20z. orange juice
  • 2 oz. cranberry juice
  • Stir in large tumbler and drink!
I loved the mix of the orange and cranberry, which is particularly good for the holiday season. 

Khor Hot Honey Pepper is Ukraine’s first vodka with whole peppercorns in the bottle. It unlocks the flavoring of red pepper perfectly, revealing the natural richness of flavors. Made for those who like to add some spice to life. The vodka is a bright, golden amber hue, complimented by red Indian Cayenne pepper and balanced with a touch of Clover Honey, resulting in a soft, silky entry with notes of spice, emphasized with hints of Cola Nut on the finish. In the end, it does not come out to be too spicy. I tried it neat, to see how spicy it was and I could handle it well (and I am a wuss when it comes to spice). I also made a cocktail with this that tasted delicious. 

Khor Bloody Mary
  • 2 oz. Khortytsa Hot Honey Pepper Vodka
  • 4 oz. tomato juice
  • 2 dashes of Tabasco Sauce
  • 2 tsp. prepared horseradish
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 pinch celery salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch Smoked Paprika
  • 1 Lemon wedge
  • 1 Lime wedge
  • Celery salt
  • Garnish 1 Celery Stalk and Lime Wedge
  • Glass Pint
Pour some celery salt onto a small plate. Rub the juicy side of the lemon or lime wedge along the lip of the pint glass. Roll the outer edge of the glass in celery salt until fully coated. Fill with ice and set aside, Squeeze the lemon and lime wedges in to a shaker and drop them in, Add the remaining ingredients and fill with ice. Shake gently and strain into the prepared glass, Garnish with a celery stalk and add a lime wedge. 

I guarantee that for the over 21 crowd, this will be a huge hit as a gift. Why not give vodka as a gift? I would love a gift of vodka!!!!!

Khor Platinum and Hot Honey Pepper Vodkas are available at any liquor store.

Happy Holidays!
