Looking for a Holiday Collection?? Check Out This Video Review

While at the mall the other day, I stopped by The Body Shop in my local mall in Denver to see what they had for the Holidays. I know that the company has been focusing more on makeup. I have had some of the past eye shadow palettes. For the most part, I like the shadows that they offer. This year, I was pleasantly surprised to see a beautiful plum palette for the Holidays.

As soon as I saw it, I could resist and had to try the shadows on myself. I went to the mall with no eye shadow with hope of finding a fun new palette. Let’s just say, Mission Accomplish!

Here is what I like:
I like the color and texture range of the eye shadows. There is a smokey plum palette and a more natural bronze palette.
I like that each eyeshadow palette can be used for a natural eye shadow loo or a more dramatic smokey look.
I like the packaging of the highlight shimmer for the face!


Cocktail Hour with Pretty Bride Shop- Warm Winter Punch

Today I want to highlight a great punch for the Holiday season! That’s right it’s that time again folks. I found this yummy recipe for a non alcoholic punch, however you could probably add some vodka if you wanted to liven it up a bit. As a nonalcoholic punch, this is a great option to provide for the designated drivers or mommy to be’s that may be at your holiday celebrations this season. This punch is a delicious drink  for Thanksgiving or  Christmas. So, with out further ado, let’s take a look at what we will need to make this warm winter punch.

1. 5 Cinnamon Sticks

2. A pinch of Nutmeg (about 1/2 tsp)

3. 6 oz of Lemonade

4.12 oz can of frozen Cranberry juice

5.12 oz can of frozen apple juice

6.A pinch of whole cloves

7. Fresh Cranberries

8. 1/2 cup to 1 cup of sugar (optional)

9.9-10 cups of water

Put all of the ingredients into a medium to large pot on the stove. Let the mixture boil, and then cover the pot with a lid. Once punch is brought to a boil, lower the heat and let simmer for about 15 min. Serve warm and enjoy, Cheers!
