naked heat palette review


November Wrap UP

30 days here, 30 days gone.  The Houston Astros won the World Series for the first time in franchise history. Go ‘Stros!  Thanksgiving was held at my house this year (I survived).  And just like Elvis, November has officially left the building.


Let’s not even beat around the bush, I’m straight up obsessed with the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette.  Find out exactly why it’s my favorite Naked palette, what I don’t like about the palette but I can “live with” and see swatches of all the shades here.


Dear Fall Weather,

Where are you?


All of Southern Texas

Patiently waiting to wear any and everything Fall/winter, but this unseasonably hot weather won’t let me be great.  For my souther people, we have transitioning our summer wardrobe into Fall down to an art.  On the plus side, Houston still has some UH-MAZING patio weather.  Cheers!

Eating & Drinking:

Sooooo, I’m not a huge fan of Thanksgiving turkey and dinner. Never have been.  As a kid, I came strictly for the sides dishes.  As an adult, I come for the sides and the wine.  Looking for a wine gift to bring to your next holiday party or dinner?  Check out which wines I’m currently drinking and gifting this season.


OMG!  Have ya’ll listened to the podcast Death, Sex & Money ?  If not, here’s your invitation.  Make sure to check out the story of “Alice” in the episode titled, “Why I Steal.”


Working from home has it’s perks.  One thing I tend to do A LOT of is watch tv (ie. Netflix) while I work.  In most cases, it’s more like background noise.  Here’s the Cliffnotes version . . .

Pretty Little Liars – is pretty much ridiculous.  How many “A’s” can there be?  People dying only to return as a mentally deranged twin sister, Scooby-Doo style latex facemarks and other absurdities. I can’t.

Sense8 – The 2017 version of the defunct NBC show, Heroes.  I’m hooked.

American Horror Story:  Cultthis anthology started off really really slow and I almost bailed.  Until . . .

Lion – (the movie . . . WOW!!!)  Sunny Pawar plays young Saroo and he easily steals the show.  100% adorbs.  Easily one of the BEST movies I’ve seen in a long time.  Speaking of awesome movies  . . .

Thor:  Ragnarok – was hilarious and that’s all I’m going to say other than, “Go see it!”
