Chic Couture-December Beauty Boxes

Wow! Friday before Christmas!! 
Are you still needing gifts? Especially for someone who loves beauty products?
Then get them a beauty subscription!
Here's my December beauty boxes...


Since I skipped Julep for November I got a few extras this month and used some of my Jules!
I stuck with Classic With a Twist which had Jillian (eggplant) and Mia (greenish silver metallic) and their new Sweep Neutrals Palette. Then I got a special set called Party Dress Duo and Cara (cranberry frost).
Plus the hair ties! I've only tried Cara, which was great!


I liked this box.  I haven't tried all the items yet, but I felt like this was a good mix of products for me. 
What I got:
Eslor Skincare System
Number 4 Non-Aerosol Hairspray
BeeKind Body Lotion
Secret Agent Beauty Secret Lip Affair Nourishing & Plumping Lipgloss
Emily's Chocolates Chocolate Covered Fortune Cookies
DigiMate
(DigiMate is a screen cleaner for your cell phone! You stick it on the back of your phone so you have it with you at all times.  Seems cool!)


And finally my Glambag!! I have used most of this, all but the lashes and polish. I'm so thankful to have not gotten red lip products! I reviewed my last products and it made a difference!
And actually like the neutral shades I got!
What I got:
Pop Sugar Barely There shadows *gotta use a primer which these!
Starrily BzzBzz polish
Be a Bombshell One Stick
J.Cat lip pencil
Ardell Demi lashes
Black makeup bag

Chic Couture-Beauty Gift Picks

Happy Friday!
Who's got their Christmas shopping done yet? Not me!
I rounded up some beauty gift ideas and a few of them might be on my wishlist! 


 This just came out and oh my! 
The Naked and Naked 2 palettes are good so I don't think you could go wrong here! 

Juicy is one of my favorite fragrances....any of them really so a sampling of all is perfect!
I just think you can never go wrong with fragrance!

I waited for this color to be back in stock so I could add it to my December box! It's a Cranberry Frost that's bright and fun for Christmas! (Or any time!)

I think this rose-gold shade is just lovely! Besides, who wouldn't want to be a Rockateur?

This smells divine!! And getting a fragrance, lotion and lip tint for the price is awesome! You almost could get one for yourself too!
Did you know: This brand is sold at Target, not just online!

Hoped these picks helped out with your shopping list!
Have a happy day!

Easy Frame Makeover


Can you believe that it might be about 10 years that I've had this snowman Christmas poster? And that I'm just now framing it!!?  In my defense it is not a common size!....11x17 to be exact.  ( I say not common because I found the frame under the 'miscellaneous sizes' section at Hobby Lobby.com!) I never could decide what kind of frame I wanted or if I wanted to try and do a crafty type frame. So a quick frame it was.  And then maybe next year I'd paint it.  Well then I had a thought! (I know a little dangerous!☺)
Glitter tape!
Thanks Target $1 Spot!!


Before......


and after in about 5 minutes!!...


So easy!
Now....I need to see what else needs a little sparkle!
Happy Thursday lovelies!!

{Freebie} Christmas Lockscreens


Yes I have been at it again.  I've changed my phone 'theme' to Christmas! I must say it's really fun to change it up! Once I figured out that it's easy to do in PicMonkey there was no need to search for themes in the Play Store or even to buy one! And there's a nifty app called CocoPPa that you use to fancy up your icons. It's free so with it and PicMonkey I can be my own theme maker!
Here's my home screen so you can get an idea of what CocoPPa does....


Fun huh? I actually am kinda diggin' the pink deer lock screen I made to share with you but it does take a little bit of time to sit and change your icons! And I'd have to have pink icons so.......
On to the freebies!!
I've made the four featured above plus I'll share my Merry & Bright one too!  Just right click and save and email it to yourself and then save to your phone.  Or if you're on your phone just long press and save!
And these are for Android-Samsung S3 but I'd be happy to make you the size you need! Just leave me a comment below!







Enjoy!!
Happy Thursday!
