Welcome the new: have a beautiful 2011!

A new year is upon us soon and have you got your goals all set? Well, one of my beauty goals in 2011 is to move on to use more natural and organic makeup as I’ve not been able to do so this year. So if you’ve got any good recommendations, do keep me posted k? Anyway, I’ve been so busy that I haven’t got time to change my nail colors yet! So let me leave you with three of my favorite entries this year to enjoy:

Lessons from fairy tales:beauty beyond skin deep.

Recommended products for the fairy tale beauties.

Nostalgic beauty products of yesteryear

And for my local readers, the Lenovo What’s Your Idea Of Fun Finale Giveaway closes in a day.  So don’t shy away with your pictures all right?

Happy New Year to all and come back for some more great giveaways in January! Cheers!

    Happy New Year Sesame! I’m actualy on the way to Sephora Ion to get Nvey Eco blusher now, cos I discovered I’m getting allergies everytime after using body shop’s lip n cheek stain. I loved that effect, but hate those allergies! Am using their compact powder now, easy to use, good coverage. :)

      I kept looking at Nvey Eco but it’s a cream foundation and I’m not so comfortable with the idea. Maybe I’ll give it a try eventually. I’ve tried their lipstick and quite like it though.

    Happy new year :) !!

    I have a nice, natural, perhaps certified organic (cannot remember) make up range that I can recommend and love. You have probably already discovered it, but it’s called Inika. I use their mineral make up, and it has never clogged my pores, and has a really nice coverage. I often get comments on my make up, all thanks to Inika.

    Hello Sesame:

    I agree with your website and commend you. I am also doing what ever I can to notify individuals about the harmful ingredients in our skin care, shampoos, cosmetics here in North America. I am doing this by using Arbonne International products as it is a certified Vegan Company and doesn’t test on animals. I love these products so much I recently became an independent consultant with Arbonne. In my opinion they have the best Anti-aging products out there!!! Oh and the Baby products my children just love them!!

    Anyway, I wish you a Happy New!

    Amy :)

      Happy New Year Amy! I’ve come across Arbonne as a brand but never tried their products. We don’t have it here.
