Red Hot Holiday Party Dress - eShakti

This past weekend I attended a holiday party I organized for the department, and it was a little stressful! We had to order a lot of beer and food for the grad students, which coordinating was interesting, but ended up being a success! The next night a friend was hosting a cocktail holiday party at her apartment, and I decided to wear this red hot dress I got from eShakti.com! I was amazed at how beautiful it was and how perfectly it fit!

Natural Green Contact Lenses - Spooky Eyes sample

I have always wanted blue or green eyes. My grandmother has these bright blue eyes and her father had blue eyes but somehow I have inherited big brown eyes. I love my brown eyes but I have always wondered what I would look like with lighter eyes. I have been trying to get my hands on some colored contact lenses but couldn't figure out how to get them without spending a fortune at the optometrist, and after getting my eyes checked and being told I have 20/20 vision, I was advised against getting contact lenses since I didn't need them. 

Lucky for me, I am a part of the eTailPR blogger network, and I was able to get my hands on a sample of natural green contact lenses from Spooky Eyes, who generously sent me a pair to test out! I was super excited to finally receive my samples in the color "Natural Green Yellow Fusion."

I received the package and here are the details:

  • Included: One pair of soft, non-vision altering contact lenses.
  • Retail Price: $27.95 - on sale for 23.95! plus free shipping

Anniversary outfit - Special occasion casual dress!

It has been raining the last couple of days here in LA (finally!), but last week was really nice. I had my anniversary with the boyfriend and we had a casual date night out with dinner and a movie, it was quite nice! Here is what I wore, a really cute, comfy sundress that I bought in Hawaii! I fell in love with the high-lo look of this dress, and how flow-y it is! The color is one of my favorites, and I used black accent pieces that I have blogged about before (the purse, the sandals).
I have been meaning to post about this outfit all week but have been swamped with work!

What do you think of this look? What would you wear to a casual date?
