Ladies Night: Neutral Purple Eye Makeup Look

Last Saturday was our monthly Ladies Night gathering. I've been trying to keep it up with making sure we have something every month so we stay in touch and have a fun night regularly. We went out to eat and have drinks at Gordon Biersch. I had never been there before but it was pretty good. The night was a lot of fun other than having a guy projectile barf right by our table. *shudders* I had to think happy thoughts and not allow myself to breathe through my nose for a bit!
This is the look I did for the night.

Outfit/OOTD: Comfy Purple Dress, Black Tights and Boots

Today I had lunch with some good friends. We went to a Chinese buffet which was pretty good. I had not had Chinese in years so I wasn't sure how I would like it. The food selection was huge so there was a lot to choose from. It was yummy! This is what I wore.

Review/Swatches: Aromaleigh's Sol Invictus - Holiday 2014 Eyeshadow Collection

Swatch time! Here we have Aromaleigh's Sol Invictus - Holiday 2014 eyeshadow collection!


http://www.aromaleighcosmetics.com/product-category/eyes/le-eyes/sol-invictus-holiday-2014/

From Aromaleigh's site:
"Saturnalia was a festival of light leading to the winter solstice, with the abundant presence of candles symbolizing the quest for knowledge and truth. Most people find the word Saturnalia to be synonymous with drunken celebration, but there was so much more to this ancient festival! The renewal of light and the coming of the new year was celebrated at the Dies Natalis of Sol Invictus, the “Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun,” on December 25. Roman mythology of the Golden Age of Saturn’s reign differed from the Greek tradition. Saturn arrived in Italy “dethroned and fugitive”, but brought agriculture and civilization and became a king. As the Augustan poet Vergil described it, “he gathered together the unruly race” of fauns and nymphs “scattered over mountain heights, and gave them laws. Under his reign were the golden ages men tell of: in such perfect peace he ruled the nations.”"
