New Work: Magdalena Gmyr S/S 2013 Look Book!

Brides if you’re shopping for your dream wedding dress, you MUST check out bridal designer Magdalena Gmyr’s S/S 2013 collection! Her dresses all have stunning details and intricate work. I had the pleasure of doing makeup for her look book back in November and excited to show you some of the collection. The crew and I actually witnessed Magdalena making a beautiful wedding dress on the spot! It was an awe-inspiring moment. There was much excitement when she finished it and it was ready to shoot!

Some serious eye candy here, but be sure to view the full collection here.

Can you tell this dress was made on location? How stunning is the Elizabeth??

Event: L’Oreal Luxe Beauty Blogger Holiday Party

I’m really lucky to know so many wonderful people in the beauty world. When I entered the beauty blogging world almost 6 years ago, I didn’t know what it would mean for my life. I’m very thankful that I get to test out products for free, blog about them, and get invited to swanky events. I have a healthy addiction to products, but that’s not why I blog. I really do love to write and connect with other beauty fanatics.

What do you get when you put a group of beauty bloggers in one room? A bunch of lushes who pose endlessly in front of a camera, hilarious photos, and giddy excitement and squeals over products. PR powerhouses and sweeties, Isabelle and Kristina, hosted a beauty blogger holiday party on behalf of L’Oreal’s Luxe brands like YSL, Giorgio Armani, Shu Uemura, Biotherm, and Victor & Rolf. This event was the first time in almost 2 years that I’ve attended one. I made a point to make it out for this one because Isabelle and Kristina have been amazing and I finally wanted to put faces to their lovely names! Plus, I got to hang out with some of my favourite beauty bloggers and friends some I haven’t seen in years!

Reviews to come of the amazing products that we received – all I can say is that these holiday collections are a must-have. It was some serious swag! I’m so forever grateful!! Check out pictures from the party courtesy of L’Oreal and my Crackberry. Thanks again for one of the most fun events I’ve been to!
