Where has the time flown?! Somehow I thought for sure I would have some down time during this holiday break, to catch up on reading… work (of course) and just hang out, turns out this whole adulthood thing puts a real damper on fun related activities. I guess it helps when you love your job and half the time it doesn’t even feel like work, which in and of itself is the biggest adulthood hack of all time, take note! I wanted my last post of 2016 to be special and [accidentally] my plan worked. We got a very rare opportunity to snoop around the guardian towers, here in Calgary, to first, host my annual clothing sale (sign up for the newsletter for all the up-to-date info), and then to shoot a few of our holiday posts. All I can say is EPIC! If you happen to end up living here, you have the front row seat to the best shows in town, the Calgary Tower to the West and the Stampede grounds (10 days of fireworks anyone?) to the South! I was saving a very special look for the beautiful new L’Absolu Rouge by Lancôme. The new lipstick comes in 31 rich shades that deeply replenish, soften and moisturize your lips. It’s very true in fact that the entire time I was wearing the color (mine was 132 Caprice and it coincidentally matched the Calgary Tower perfectly!), I didn’t have to re-apply nor add any additional hydration to my lips. With a pure red like this it’s actually quite the feat, considering I have smaller lips and can use all the hydration I can get. I love the sleek new design of the packaging and the click opening system make it feel like a James Bond gadget more than any makeup i’ve ever seen. Vitamin E safeguards your lips against environmental damage and the Moisture Locker Complex helps to keep moisture exactly where it’s most needed. In case your weekend plans consist of ringing in the New Year with a bang, you’re going to want to treat yourself to one of these for the night. We all love putting in that extra special effort after all, and if there was ever time to wear red lipstick, Saturday is your day! Very Bond girl indeed! I’m just happy to be home for long enough to spend time with my family and friends, gold pumps, red lips and the whole nine yards! I hope you all have a fun and safe New Year’s Eve! I’m excited to see what new adventures await us in 2017! Here is to new beginnings, fresh starts, family and friends and most importantly to loving life! xoxo

      Thank you so much, we got really lucky with this one, from the dress to the location and even the weather. I mean, who would have thought that we were going to be able to shoot this in the middle of December in Calgary! Whoever says it gets cold here during winter has never been here during a Chinook 😀

      re: dress thank you I bought it so long ago and finally found a reason to wear it!

    • Ania says:

      Thank you, it was a great buy, I didn’t really have occasions to wear it until finally the perfect moment came, sometimes it’s really worth the wait 🙂 Another reason to think twice before getting rid of anything too quickly
