    i finished my mum's Christmas gift... (lace stole)

    my mum never wears stoles/shawls. a few years ago i made her a lace pair of gloves in a very similar colour, so when i saw this yarn i *had* to make something for her out of it. i picked a stole pattern, so she can use it as more of a scarf than an actual shawl. here it is in progress...

    lipstick like High Top without the glitter?

    i LOVE MAC's Fafi High Top lipstick! i love the sparkles and the purple! but... the glitter just isn't always appropriate. i often find myself wishing i could just take the glitter out and leave everything else exactly as it is. do any of you have any recs for a MAC lipstick very similar...
