This week I'm obsessed with... Chamilia Love You To Death Skull Charm!

Seeing as it's almost Halloween, this is the one time of the year that my love for all things skull-like doesn't seem so macabre. When you throw in heart shaped eyes and nose along with sparkle, anyone has to admit that creepy becomes adorable - as it does with:

Chamilia by Swarovski Group Love You To Death Skull Charm - $45 - .925 sterling silver with Swarovski crystal accents.

Or if you're more of an earring girl, you can pick those up for $40!

Ceramic Glaze Holiday Bling Collection - with swatches!

Ceramic Glaze Holiday Bling Collection - $10.99 -a collection of bold jewel tones that were carefully selected to nail the holiday party look. Holiday Bling features 3 best-selling shades; Santorini Blue, Hong Kong Diva and Sexy Stiletto and 4 new shades; O Holly Night, 24 Karat, Sugar Plum Sparkle, and Ruby Bling. 

I love the bright colours and sparkle which I think holiday polish should be all about - the blue polish took 3 coats to cover but all of the sparkle polishes just took 2 - just ignore the little nail, I think the angle of the shot is making it look like I forgot the 2nd coat!

Mascara Monday - GOSH Double Precision Mascara

GOSH Double Precision Mascara - $17 - with a two-brush wonder tool to get long, luscious lashes with serious definition.
One side has a large brush that adds extreme volume to the upper lashes.
While the other side has a small brush that allows for individual definition to the lower lashes.
As an extra bonus, along with the promised volume, it adds a bit of curl as well - I do find it a little bit clumpy so with normal use, I would be sure to run an eyelash comb through my lashes after applying.

Available exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart.
