2015 Pantone Color of the Year Released

2015 pantone color of the year

Information on the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year has been released! The 2015 Pantone Color of the Year shade is entitled Marsala. It’s a red-brown wine which will make for a lovely palette come Fall 2015 as it’s warm, very inviting, and will make a delicious lipstick shade for warm loving red girls and guys.

At this point most are thinking of how wonderful the shade will look against the back drop of Fall fashions in a range of metallic earthy tones. Personally, I’m thinking of lipstick in this color even a warm reddish brown blush or eyeshadow so my focus is on what sort of makeup trends we’ll see with the introduction of this shade. Although the color of the year it seems like a beautiful Fall shade so I look forward to see what Fall 2015 brings in this shade and who knows it might just dominate Summer 2015 Makeup Collections as well.

I’m also very curious if Sephora will launch a new Pantone Color of the Collection celebrating Marsala! One can hope so as it truly is a gorgeous color.

What do you think of the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year?

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas with this Candle!

Say “holly” and “jolly” in the same sentence and I instantly think of Burl Ives immortalized as a little plump clay snowman wishing me a Holly Jolly Christmas!

Now I can live that happy feeling of having a Holly Jolly Christmas with this new Bath & Body Works Candle!

Bath & Body Works Holly Jolly Christmas Candle is a blend of bright mandarin, red pomegranate and fresh balsam. This wasn’t originally available during the initial Bath & Body Works Holiday 2014 Candle but it is now!

Christmas Is Coming


Happy Thanksgiving!


As the Holidays near I always become particularly reflective about life, the universe, and everything. I’m thankful every morning when I wake up and I’m able to start a brand new day. I don’t need one day of the year to be thankful for all I have however, Thanksgiving is a nice reminder to remember what I am most grateful for!

Life, friends, family, all of you, are just some of the things I’m grateful for!

Thank you for being part of my journey through life and spending some of your precious time with me daily!

May you have a wonderful, safe, happy, healthy Thanksgiving!

And remember to be grateful for everything you have EVERYDAY not just on Thanksgiving.
