Gingergread Houses: Smells Like Tradtion To Me!

Yesterday I came by my boyfriends house and baked a gingerbread house with my mother-in-law and madrina, Lidia.  We both created the gingerbread mix together, then constructed our own houses.  Lidia made a very cute gingerbread barn while I decided to create the forever traditional, small, but cute gingerbread cottage!  I tried to be creative with my patterned roof of sweet-tarts and various candies around the cottage, while Lidia let me use some Pig shaped gummy candy she was using for her barn.  I forgot to bake a door for my cottage, so I improvised with two pieces of Starburst and icing! The "L & L" stands for Lauren (me), and Luis-Enrique (my boyfriend).  Creating Gingerbread houses is a tradition that I have been doing with my madrina before every Christmas, and it is something that I look forward to being that I feel like I don't get to spend as much time with her as I like to with my busy schedule.  I can't wait until I graduate so that can all change!  'Tis the season to relax, and enjoy one anothers company! I hope you enjoy the heavy post of pictures to follow, and Have a Merry Christmas!  *Sylvia of Eye of The Tiger Photography also created a great castle with our mama-in-law, which can be seen here.

Sale Alert: Twilight Beauty!

I have already written a post mentioning Twilight Beauty and how much I wanted stuff from the collections here.  I urge anyone who loves Beauty + Twilight to take advantage of this offer before time runs out!


I have already taken advantage of the offer myself! I just purchased the "Bella Beauty Set", pictured below:

I am so happy to be getting that--but so upset because I left my cart open, went to pick up some laundry, and by the time I came back--the "Volturi Beauty Set" was "Temporarily Sold Out"! =(

Once that baby is back from being sold out--I'm totally getting on that! Look at the colors...and the packaging...LOVE IT!

Rest In Peace Brittany Murphy

I cannot believe this...

Actress Brittany Murphy, who's breakout role was in the 1995 film "Clueless", past away early this morning after going into full cardiac arrest and could not be revived.  She was 32 years old.
Read the following articles that confirm her passing for more information. 
The Daily News

My heart goes out to Brittany's husband and family during this hard time.  From my understanding, Brittany had struggles with her weight in the past, and it would break my heart even more if those past health complications had anything to due with the circumstances of her passing.  I truly loved her, and thought she was a funny and endearing actress.  She was taken too soon from this world.

R.I.P. Brittany! How I remember my favorite, down to earth character from "Clueless":

I even found my original movie soundtrack cassette, wasn't she adorable then? Rest In Peace <3

Modeling for Christopher Drummond Beauty!

I met my friend Christopher Drummond about a year ago at a Meet-Up which took place at the Pro Mac Store in N.Y.C.  He is an amazing Makeup Artist who has his own line Christopher Drummond Beauty, which has been featured in numerous publications such as Elle Magazine.  Fashion designer Jillian Lewis, a finalist on season four of ‘Project Runway’, debuted her chic Spring-Summer 2010 Collection at New York Fashion Week, and selected Christopher Drummond Beauty’s fresh-faced makeup approach to go along with her fresh new collection.  I have been given the opportunity and privilege to be a model for a Jennifer Lopez inspired look he wanted to create. [picture-heavy]

The Inspiration Photo Chris used for my look:

What Christopher Drummond Beauty is all about!
Christopher Drummond created luxurious makeup for those who desire 100% natural, organic-based cosmetic products that are the highest cosmetic-grade quality. Our products are made exclusively from healthy ingredients and contain natural antioxidants, such as Acai, green tea, calming botanicals, balancing essential oils, and anti-inflammatory soy isoflavones, which help firm your skin while protecting it against sun damage.
Our skincare line does not contain titanium dioxide or bismuth oxychloride, two known irritants.
I went to his studio, where he films all of his You Tube videos.  Chris was so sweet to answer some of my beauty questions, and will be sending me some products from his line to try out as well!  I will definitely be doing an honest review on the products soon!

Here is all of the footage from my day as a model for Christopher Drummond Beauty!  Please check out Christopher Drummonds work and line at: http://www.christopherdrummond.com
