The Glamorous Elizabeth Taylor/ Plus Makeup & Hair Tutorials

Elizabeth Taylor was and will be remembered as one of Hollywood's most talented and glamorous stars. Yes, men and women alike have admired her natural beauty through out the years. And one of her most unique features that she had were definitely her stunning violet eyes!

Just the other day when I picked up a People Magazine I stopped at a picture of her and noticed her piercing violet eye color. I pointed it out to my husband and thought for sure that someone must have photoshopped that picture. But then my husband responded, "no that was really her eye color."

I knew that Elizabeth had violet eyes. But I had no idea that they were a deep violet color. When I saw her picture it was as if I was looking at an amethyst stone color eyes on a porcelain doll! I was totally taken back. No wonder she was mesmerizing!

Part of her other glamorous signature look were her thick dark eyebrows, her natural beauty mark, and her short wavy black hair. While many at the time prefer the blonde look, this gal proved that brunettes can also have some fun.

In addition to her natural beauty Elizabeth was also known for her sophisticated accessories. They say that diamonds are a girls best friend. And Elizabeth definitely had many, many best friends. She loved gemstones since she was a young girl. They say that her jewelry are worth  $150 million. Once in an interview she told Barbara Walters, "The beauty, the perfection, God's workmanship. They're all from the ground."

It is interesting to note though that out of all her jewelry collection Elizabeth only purchased a few, because most were given as presents to her from the men in her life, which kind of reminded me of Cleopatra.

Oscar Wilde once said, "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life." I think that that was the case in the life of the glamorous Elizabeth Taylor.

What is Inside Wonder Woman's Purse?

No matter how busy Wonder Woman was she always made sure not to leave home without it. No, I am not talking about her bullet-deflecting bracelets. No and it's not her golden lasso that makes folks say the truth.  I am talking about her one and only super lipstick. How else do you think she got her super powers? Well, okay so it wasn't the lipstick itself that made her strong, but it sure made her feel perkier and prettier.

In January this year Warner Bros. Consumer Products announced that DC Comics' iconic heroine Wonder Woman will team up with MAC Cosmetics to create a Wonder Woman makeup collection that will be available by Spring. Well guess what a whole Wonder Woman makeup line is here!

We are especially excited about the lipsticks! With it's rich classy colors and signature Wonder Woman case is no wonder that these beauties have been flying off the shelves!

Here are our three favorites Wonder Woman Lipsticks:

Russian Red



Aren't these lipsticks fantastic? It would sure make any girl feel super pretty!

Oh and by the way if you would like to see Woman Woman in action there are actually full episodes from the T.V. show here: TheWB.

Now no one can beat that!

Victorian Fashion at Plasticland!

I recently visited Plasticland to see what new things they have. And the first thing that I noticed was their new whimsical website design, which I totally love! In addition to that they have added new Victorian items that are totally cute!

For those that know me know that I not only love the 20's- 60's decades. But I also happened to be fascinated with the Victorian era. As a matter of fast that era inspired me to write my novel Victoria Lee Jones and The Valedictorians Secret Society.

So as I am writing my novel I always think what my characters would be wearing in any particular scene. What would Victoria Lee Jones be wearing when she travels back in time? Well she would wear:

A Victorian inspired blouse key print style with it's high ruffled neckline and puffed sleeve.

A Wool Victorian bowler hat.

A Black and white hounds tooth heeled booties.

And an Antique inspired pocket watch pendant necklace.

I think that it always important for a girl to keep track of time especially when she is traveling to a place where she haven't been before.

Well like Madame Carlton always says: "Taking risks is the spice of life."
