Currently Loving . . .


After I filmed, edited my November favs my iMovie crashed and I lost all of the footage! I was furious but now I will be investing in an external hard drive to prevent it from happening again. I gave up on trying to re-filming everything but still wanted to share some items I’ve been loving and currently using. *Last year I skipped December favorites and did my top 13 products of 2013, this year will be my top 14 products of 2014 so keep an eye out for that!


I adore my Vianel VC Wallet along with my new blush Jouer makeup bag


Nars Tran Bleu lip pencil has been on my lips for quite some now, it’s such a pretty matte wine shade. The Burberry Gold palette has the perfect blend of warm and cool shades that balance each other very nicely. Burberry’s Oxblood nail polish is a rich vamp nail shade that has a gorgeous cream finish. My Burberry perfume is such a fresh scent and how cute is this dinky sample bottle? A rediscovery but I forgot how amazing Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet looks on the skin. I’ve been all about gold simple accessories and love my vintage choker. I pair the choker with a bar necklace from E & E Project along with some gold stacking rings from Homegrown Silver & Stone. My new Daniel Wellington watch is another addition to my collection, you can receive 15%off your very own watch by using the code “holiday-lipstickwithsomesunshine”. I’ve been piling on layers of the By Terry Baume De Rose, this is going to be a big problem once I run out!


Surprisingly all these items fit in the Jouer makeup bag, it opens up very widely and is coated in a suede material on the inside.

    • Thank you dear! You’re too kind xoxo

    You should do a blog all about brushes. This is an area in which I struggle and I feel that you and I have a similar approach when it comes to makeup. I wanna know what I should invest in, rather than what is a good buy at the drugstore. So far I have not been impressed with drugstore brushes because I am extremely picky ( though I do like real techniques). I would love your opinion.

    • I’ll add it to the list dear! I have all types of brushes so it should be a fun post to do. I’m obsessed with the real techniques brushes too!

  • Julie Hoang

    The makeup bag looks gorgeous, I got a coach one last winter & it’s such a good size too!

    • Thanks dear! You really can’t go wrong with this bag and the price is even better!

  • Tessa

    These area all such great choices – I really want to try that Nars pencil! And the Burberry nail polish is such a gorgeous colour 🙂

    Tessa / Bramble & Thorn

    • Thank you dear! It’s such an awesome color, it almost feels like a nude in a way in the sense that I can walk out and feel put together while the rest of my face is really plain and simple! The Burberry polish is to die for too!

  • Jennifer

    love the chanel foundation, they dont seem to be able to go wrong!


    • I love their bases too!

  • DreamInLace

    I can’t help but notice what a monochromatic look your favorites have. Surely this is not on accident? haha You clearly have a love of all things monochrome and very cool that you’ve found products you love to match it. I’ve been really meaning to try that newer chanel foundation. It sounds great!


    • Yes lol, I have a bit of a problem when it comes to monochrome! It’s such an awesome light base, you should pick up a sample to try it out!

  • mirjam

    in love with this vianel wallet <3
    bisou, mirjam

    • You and me both! I’ll have it for ages because it’s such good quality, very happy with it!

  • Vanessa Buttino

    Ack! You’re the second person I heard from today who said they lost their video footage! That must be the worst feeling ever … akin to running out of potato chips or ice cream, I think. Am I right? Can’t wait to see what your top picks are for 2014! x

    • It was freakin horrible so I just did the tutorial instead! Very relatable to chips and ice cream xoxo

  • Mandy

    I have been eyeing up the Burberry perfume ever since it launched but I have yet to smell it..I have a feeling I will ‘need’ it once I do!


    • You must! It smells amazing and I know they’re monogramming bottles too if you pick one up!

  • Vicky (blush and simplicity)

    Great picks! I should start using the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation again. I loved it when I first got it, then started wearing another foundation that I really like.

    blush and simplicity

    • Thanks love! That’s exactly what I did, I get so caught up in testing out other foundations but I was good and caught myself! I always try to come back to old foundations

  • Sarah

    Your photos are always so stunning!

    and beauty or something.
