December IPSY!!

Another month another IPSY!! 

I am LOVING Ipsy! 
The black studded bag! omg it is beautiful I love it!
 The One Stick by Be a Bombshell in Flustered is an all-in-one multiple stick with a smooth texture. Can be apply to eyelids, cheeks or lips for the perfect pop of color anywhere! I like this I think it makes a great blush it blends well and I probobly wont use it as an eyeshadow but be a bombshell has lots of great colors!

 Extra Creamy Round Lipstick by NYX in Apollo is a classic lipstick for all occasions that has a mineral-based emollient formula, beautiful velvet texture, saturated color, and resists wear and smudging. I love the color and although I think it's not my shade I still love it :) it's a nice bronzy color and feels great on my lips.

 Bright Up Your Life  by POP in Smokin Hot this palette of smoky hues adds definition & intensity to lids, creating a broad range of shadow looks that complement all eye colours. From brightening bare to sultry smoke, these hues blend smoothly onto the lid, adding a veil of silky luster.

 Nail Polish by Starrily in Buzz Buzz features a combo of yellow and black glitters in a clear base. No dibutyl phthalate, toluene, camphor or formaldehyde. Vegan and Cruelty free. For best results, use as a topcoat.

And Lastly we have
Modlash Strip Lashes by Andrea in 33 Black  lashes are the perfect compliment to your natural beauty. Strip Lashes are lightweight, easy to apply, and comfortable to wear. Each strip lash is meticulously handmade with 100% sterilized human hair for perfect uniformity. (which I find interesting) Kit includes one pair of Mod Lashes and a small Andrea LashGrip Adhesive. 

If you don't have IPSY you should definitely get it for only $10 a month you get a glam bag with goodies every month!!  I think that's a steal!

well till another day my dear's Sweet sleep

Happy Thanksgiving my loves!

Well hello my loves,

Thanksgiving was great! I hope you all had a great turkey day and spent it with your loved ones.

I got to spend my thanksgiving with my Wonderful girlfriend Star and our little house family here in Colorado :)  It was nice.

Star made her famous cranberry glazed turkey breasts which were amazing and totally worth ditching the whole turkey and just getting the breasts :)   She took pictures and told me I was welcome to share it with you all :) so here we go!

Cranberry Glazed Turkey Breasts

For the Turkey you will need:

  • 1 (6pound) whole turkey breast or 6 individual cut breasts
  • 1 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 tbs creole Seasoning ( recipe below)
For your Brine you will need:

  • 3/4 Gallons water
  • 2 cups white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup kosher salt 
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup chopped ginger
  • 1 tbs black peppercorns
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme

Combine all of the brining liquid ingredients in a large non-reactive container (a stockpot works well for this) and stir to dissolve the salt and sugar. Rinse the turkey well under cold running water. Place the turkey in the brine, cover, and refrigerate, turning occasionally, for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours.

When you take the Turkey breasts out of the brine just drain the brine and remove all sprigs and peppercorns from turkey and place on a foiled baking sheet.

Roast in the oven, tented with foil at 350F for about 18-20 minutes per pound......and when you remove it from the oven, remember to let it "rest" for about 10 - 15 minutes before you carve it. This is a process know as "carry over cooking".

 Then you top your turkey breasts with your creole seasoning

For your creole seasoning you will need:

  • 2 tbs salt
  • 2 tbs garlic powder
  • 1 tbs black pepper
  • 1tbs onion powder
  • 1 tbs cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbs dried oregano
  • 1 tbs dried thyme
Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
(you wont need all the seasoning so you can save the rest in a zip lock bag for later)

For your Cranberry Glaze you will need:

  • 1 (12-oz) bag fresh cranberries
  • 1/3 cup chopped ginger
  • 2 tbs orange zest
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup orange-flavored liqueur (recommended: Grande Marnier)

 Boil all ingredients in a large pot, (you can hear the Cranberry's popping I liked this part) for about 10-15mins. Till all the berries are pretty much popped.
 We used a flour sifter to strain our cranberry glaze.
(I saved the cranberry stuff from inside the strainer to make a jam.)
place the cranberry glaze in the fridge so it can cool while your turkey is still cooking. 

When your turkey is done 'resting' carve it and plate it. Then place the glaze over your carved turkey!
And Enjoy!

For some after turkey and a whole bottle of wine fun I decided it would be fun to put eyebrows on the pups lol Enjoy!

Hope you try this amazing recipe and if you do tell me what you think :)  

Christmas is coming ya'll Get ready!!!!   I am so ready for December <3

Happy holiday's loves!

IPSY is here!!!  :)  I absolutely loved everything I got this month! :) 
Let me tell you a little about my November Glam bag! 

So first on my list was this Gorgeous Red lip crayon by Bombshell Cosmetics in Hot Damn
It's a Bright red color and has a very smooth texture. I Love it!  
 Apply to top and bottom lips for full coverage. For sheer coverage, apply to lower lip only and blot lips together. For more color, apply several coats until you receive desired results.
Bombshell Cosmetics gives you a Tip on how to make your lips appear fuller: Start applying lip crayon in the middle of your mouth and blend outward, stopping just short of the edge to prevent bleeding and make lips appear fuller.

We Have a Gem eye pencil By Starlooks in Topaz
 It has a magnificent metallic finish and is so versatile, soft, and creamy that it can be used as a liner or eyeshadow base! It has a gorgeous, micro-glitter finish.

 Lip gallery creamy color sheer lipstick in Showstopper
A fresh tint of just right color for a dreamy pout. Lightweight, creamy texture with sheer, buildable color quality. Silky shine finish and conditioning comfort.
em tip: this is the perfect, buildable lip color for those who want a sheer tint!

Hydrating, silky-smooth & long-wearing, it also protects against free radicals. Contains Vitamin E to protect the skin and mica, which provides dense natural pigment. I love this Bronzer it is the perfect shade!
