I've been feeling a bit strained from work lately, so there are days when I just am not really creative with my outfits. I wore this a few days ago when I wasn't really feeling like getting out of bed and trading my bunny slippers for heels. I opted for these cushy velvet flats instead.

I was really glad, though, that this beautiful French-themed makeup palette and gorgeous Eiffel Tower necklace came in the mail for me! I won this lovely duet from Gayle from the blog Gayle's Wishlist. Check it out! She does a lot of posts on beauty products :)

Thanks, Gayle! I can't wait to play with these fabulous goodies!

  3. Awww You're so silly. I was sitting there thinking "Goodness. She looks so feminine, springy, and dream like" and you're all "Yeah - not feeling creative today!" waaa waaa waaaaah. Well, at least if this is you being boring, you're still pretty. ;) The things you won look like they'll be tons of fun to use!

  9. The palette is so pretty! I love all the purples and blues. Are purple and blue "French" colors? If so, maybe I know where I belong now!
