Gratitude is gorgeous.


Beautiful: Feelings of gratitude are beautiful. Since the site launched 10 days ago, we have received a little over 2,000 page views according to Google Analytics! I am so grateful to everyone that has emailed me well wishes, texted "love it", kindly mentioned us on a blog post, "liked" us on Facebook, connected with me on LinkedIn, viewed our Pinterest page, read our Tweets, and visited the website and the blog.  It means so much to me and I wanted to thank you. Thank you!

Gorgeous: I love Thanksgiving! It's a time to eat, drink wine, be in presence of good company, and take some time to be thankful for all our blessings. As we get ready for our fete, I thought it would be fun to share some top picks for gorgeous berry lipstick. Berry is just enough color pop to add to your Thanksgiving makeup look. In my opinion, berry looks good on every skintone and is a bit more understated than red. Absolutely gorgeous!

Makeup: Berry Thankful: Top 5 Picks for Berry Lip Color

1. Guerlain Automatique Hydrating Lip Shine #265 Pao Rosa...$35. Details: Super hydrating sheer lip color that has pearly particiles to help create amazing shine. Love the luxurious packaging. My favorite pick. Gorgeous! (image saks.com)

2. Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Blackberry...$24. Details: Ultra creamy, semi-matte, and true to color. This deep berry looks good on light to deep skintone. Pretty daring and fabulous! (image nordstrom.com)

3. MAC Frost Lipcolor in Odyssey...$14.50. Details: MAC staple that has a frost, opaque, berry-wine sheen. It is not too dark but has just enough color pop! Works on cool and warm skin tones. Don't let the word frost scare you, it's very pretty! (image mac.com)

4.YSL Rouge Volupte Lip Color in #12 Forbidden Burgundy...$34. Details: If you have never tried a YSL lip color, promise me you will! They go on so smooth and smell amazing (kind of like peach)! This lip color is bold and will get noticed. Love! (image nordstrom.com)

5. Clinique High Impact Lip Colour in After Party...$15. Details: Luscious. mositure-rich lip color that lasts.  This lipstick is sweat- and humidity- resistant and has an SPF 15. I would describe the color as a brownish-berry with a gold sheen. A little dratmatic but not vampy at all! You could totally pull it off! (image sephora.com)

Inslee by Design - In the Kitchen Stationary (green dress illustration above)...$35 for box of 10. Order at www.inslee.net. Adorable!

Do something lovely: Whatever your plans are this Thanksgiving, I hope you are in good company! Wouldn't it be nice to give the hostess a lovely gift this year like the In the Kitchen stationary from Inslee by Design? I'm sure any small gesture to show gratitude for all the hard work that goes in to preparing a feast would be kindly appreciated!

Speical thanks in advanced to Maureen for being the hostess with the mostess this year and having Thanksgiving dinner for my family. I am grateful for all the thought and love you have put into making this year's Thanksgiving extra special. I'll be there with bells on wearing my berry colored lipstick!
