Ushering In 2013 With Style…

… and a FOTD! Perhaps the very first one on beaute fabuleuse as well, even?

Now I was very excited when Lily of ChloeAsh Tweeted asking if any bloggers would love to join her and her lovely Femme Boulevard group as guests ushering in the year 2013 with style by doing a themed look (As Femme Boulevard always does every month- themed looks I mean)… and without a second thought I jumped at the offer…

The theme? Shiny/metallic lids and bold/vampy lips.

Merry Christmas + Updates!

Hello!

So very sorry for the longer-than-usual hiatus, that caused me to even miss the 1st anniversary of beaute fabuleuse on the 11th November! But a lot of things have been happening, so I guess it was inevitable :( I promise I definitely won’t forget beaute fabuleuse‘s 2nd anniversary next year, though ;) I’m still actually still quite considerably swamped as I write this, but I have to at least give some updates now do I? :P I feel really bad for neglecting to post for so long!

Anyway, first things first- a very Merry Christmas, season’s greetings and happy holidays, and here’s to a fabulous year ahead! I’m pretty sure mine will be great and I hope yours will be too ;)

So, now… let me put you up to speed on the happenings as of late right after the jump! Kind of wordy and picture-intensive though because there’s just so much I want to update :)
