QVC Giveaway featuring the Clarisonic Mia!

Congrats Pramudita for winning this giveaway!


Non beauty babblings and a giveaway ahead…!

Today we took the ferry to the Royal Naval Dockyard to take advantage of endless amounts of Rum Cake samples at the Bermuda Rum Cake Company. Basically you can sit around and taste test every flavor under the sun while getting a slight buzz on from the rum soaked cake. They have any flavor you can think up including traditional, chocolate, or my favorite Swizzle (brace yourself as Swizzle is probably the worst offender when it comes to tasting the alcohol in the cake). One year I visited and had shipped back Rum Cakes to family and friends and they FREAKING NEVER ARRIVED! Needless to say the cake company really was nice about it and I ended up with more cake than I knew what to do with. I ended throwing a taster party with it all, fun was had by all that night.

The real reason I wanted to visit the dockyard today though is to see Flaming Damon aka Damon Simons who creates blown glass frogs, ladybugs, and other bits and bobs using a propane burner. Oh yeah and there happens to be a killer pharmacy right next to the Clocktower Mall which has a plenty of British goodies to indulge in. We’ll also be swimming with the dolphins at Dolphin Quest as well. It’s one of my favorite places in Bermuda and it never really gets old no matter how many times you visit and do it. It’s just magical!

The west end is kinda smallish when you’re comparing it to Hamilton and St George’s but there is still plenty to do and see.

Anyway…I typically don’t do these types of personal posts so on with the BEAUTY! That’s why you come here after all :)

To celebrate the QVC Customer Choice Beauty Awards I’m having a giveaway featuring three of my favorite products from the 36 different categories. You can vote for all your very favorite beauty products today through August 24th and winners will be announced on October 17th!

I see PLENTY of my own favorites like Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment, Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof SmolderEYES Liners, WEN Conditioner, and of course, no list would be complete WITHOUT my very favorite product of all time, It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer.

Jason Wu for Lancome for Fall 2013


The delightful Jason Wu for Lancome Collection is available now if you’d to indulge. These aren’t my shades of choice but I think it might take a few dozens hands to keep me from indulging as my love for Jason Wu is quite massive.

Take a look!


Topshop Sheer Lipstick for Fall 2013

Topshop Sheer Lipstick

TopShop Sheer Lipstick if you want you can come home with me tonight. We’ll have dinner, catch up on a little Teen Wolf, and have romantic time together after.

That is if you aren’t too busy and don’t mind my cooking, I burn boiling water after all.

If not I’ll head over to Nordstrom or my nearest Topshop store and pick you up and force you home with me because I must have you for my very own.

Topshop’s new Sheer Lipsticks are available in two shades, Lolly, and Swirl, each offering a moisturizing hint of tint for lips!

Ouch on the $16 price tag for a sheer lippie but knowing Topshop they’ll be wonderful!

Do want.
