True Inspiration:: Ilona Royce Smithkin

I was searching the internet for feather eyelashes...don't ask me why? Just love fashion forward looks. :0) And I came across this wonderful video! As a long time dream as a fashion designer, she is so inspiring. She seems to have so much knowledge. Especially since she is 90! She has a great outlook on life. I especially love how she wears her eyelashes and how she says she has a good relationship with her eyelashes and body. She is such a lovely person! She is my new hero. I love people who inspire and people who dare to be different. It make life worth it. :0)

While searching Ilona, I found another video of "How You Don't Have To Be Perfect!." I guess the quotes are true..."the older the wiser" or "Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." ~Mark Twain

Happy Friday! Cheers!

Today MAC released the Miss Piggy Collection. Miss Piggy's collection has three items...

Known for her bedazzling blue eyes, silky blond hair & sensationally shapely measurements, Miss Piggy was kind enough to collaborate with M·A·C.

36 Lash
Originally launched as Sultress Lashes. Full lash, creates a naturally dramatic look. M·A·C Lashes are handmade to exact specifications. Gives you Miss Piggy's full lashes for that dramatic look.

Penultimate Eye Liner
A liquid pen-style liner that provides the ultimate precise, bold line in a rich, deep carbon black shade. Would you wear eyeliner like Miss Piggy?

Love Miss Piggy for her uniqueness in this picture, -Marie

On My Wish List:

I have been looking for "shear" necklaces for awhile. And now the looking is over because I am set on this new necklace from Tarina Tarantino!

This is on my wish list for sure....Maybe when the time gets closer I'll post my Christmas wish list. :0) (Every year after Halloween it seems as if retail is blocking Thanksgiving out and just jumping to Christmas! I find it kinda sad since I love spending time with Family and eating pumpkin pie. :0)Right after Halloween you hear all the Christmas music and Christmas decorations. Do you feel like Christmas is coming earlier and earlier every year???)

H&M Versace Collection:

H&M (Hennes & Mauritz) is a Swedish retail clothing company known for their fast fashion clothing for Women, Men and Children clothing. The company started in 1947 by Erling Persson in Västerås, Sweden. At the time it only sold women clothing and was called Hennes, Swedish for "hers". H&M is known for their fashion forward designs and affordability. They are also know as a company that collaborates with high end designers. Throughout the years they have teamed up with many designers.

H&M's newest team-up is with Versace. And let me say they have some great items. Here are a few that stuck out to me. Some of these designs remind me of Custo Barcelona. Very vibrant colors and very unique patterns. But you know it's Versace by it's unique design.

Here are some of H&M's team-ups:

In 2004- Karl Lagerfeld. The press reported large crowds and that the initial inventories in the larger cities were sold out within an hour!
In 2005- Stella McCartney
In 2006- Viktor & Rolf (Love Flower Bomb by Viktor & Rolf :0))
In 2007- Madonna, Roberto Cavalli, Kylie Minogue
In 2008- Comme des Garçons
In 2009- Matthew Williamson, Jimmy Choo
In 2010- Lanvin

Violent Lips

Remember those amazing but tacky tattoo transfers that most of us used to wear as kids???
Growing up I had tons of My little pony tattoo's in my collection.
Well, transfers are making a comeback in the beauty world but in very different way. Firstly it was nail transfers, then it was eye shadow designs. Well they can both step aside to make way for lip transfers. Recentely seen on many celebrities.
Violent Lip who have pioneered the innovative new creations, were only available in the US and via their website. But now you can get them at Sephora! Usually costing $14.95 for three applications. These are definetly a head turner. They look so unique! My favorite is the leopard design. I know I know...crazy!...I just love craziness. :0)

The Best Foundation Video...Ever!

Probably The Best Foundation Video Ever! Dermablend

This is probably an old video but for those who have not seen it, it's a must see.
Rick Genest, also know as Zombie Boy, he was also on the Lady Gaga Born this Way video. Rick has tattoos that were covered with Dermablend and they did a great job...he's skin looks flawless and it looks amazing! The video starts with
"How do you judge a book?" I think it makes you think of how people would persevere him on the streets. After watching the video I feel I can see the great person he may be. I am definetly wanting to try this Dermablend, and I am now a fan of Rick Genest!

Check out the behind the scenes, it is a great video too!
