Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

Every Thanksgiving hostess has his or her moments of anxiety. Hell, I've been making holiday dinners and hosting dinner parties for a decade, and I still get a little nervous when it come to roasting the perfect turkey. That combined with kids, houseguests, and having to make an endless supply of side dishes all timed in perfect harmony...it's a lot for one person. Hopefully by the time you've read this post, I will have answered any of your looming questions, but if there is still anything you are concerned about, please leave a comment at the end of the post, and I'll be sure to answer.

1. What if I overcook the turkey, and the breast meat is dry? Slice it thin and soak it in warm chicken or turkey stock.
2. How do I get the skin beautiful golden brown? Lots of butter! Separate the skin and push butter directly over the meat then spread more butter over the outside of the skin. Also cover just the breast of th…

L'BRI PURE n' NATURAL Beauty Picks


I'm so happy to share this brand with you guys! I can honestly say that I've loved each and every L'BRI PURE n' NATURAL product I've tried. I'm completely sold on the brand as a whole, that I would order anything from them with full confidence, so I feel very comfortable telling you that you can too. This is not an affiliate brand for me, so I get nothing out of telling you guys to buy L'BRI, so believe me when I say you should absolutely try their amazing beauty products! That being said, let me tell you all about the particular products I've been trying.

First, my very favorite, is the L'BRI lipstick in Sugarplum. It's what I'm wearing in my recent Beauty Edit video, and on top of the beautiful color, the formula is so moisturizing. With ingredients like shea butter, jojobo oil, grapeseed oil, and Vitamin E oil; it's no surprise this lipstick does such a good job at moisturizing. It also contains aloe, an ingredient found in all of the L'BRI skin care and body care products.




You can see in the pictures above that it's a very wearable red with a beautiful hint of shimmer!

The Volumizing Mascara and Velvet-Touch Eye Liner in Black Shimmer have become favorites as well. I have severe eye allergies, and since I started using the L'BRI eyeliner and mascara, I haven't had itchy eyes after putting on makeup. I love the retractable eyeliner. It goes on smoothly and has a beautiful shimmer. The mascara is very volumizing and lengthening as well.

In addition to these other makeup products, L'BRI was kind enough to let me create my own fall makeup palette, starting with the Go Dazzle Compact. With this compact, I was able to pick four long lasting powder eye shadow colors, a powder blush, and a dual finish powder.



L'BRI has so many beautiful eye shadow colors to pick from; including matte, pearl, and high pearl finishes. The ones I chose that are the High Pearl Eye Shadow in Pink Champagne, Pearl Eye Shadow in Creme GlowMatte Eye Shadow in Plum, and the Pearl Eye Shadow in Mocha. The shimmer on the High Pearl formula is so gorgeous, and the colors in the matte and pearl finishes are very buildable and blend together so well. I will be happily putting together a tutorial for you guys using this beautiful palette!

Also pictured in this palette is the Believable Finish Blush in Rose Sand and Perfect Finish Dual Action powder in Antique Beige. The blush is a beautiful rose color that works perfectly with my cool undertones. And though I picked it for this fall palette, I can see myself wearing it for spring as well.

The Perfect Finish Powder is aptly named. It gives very good coverage and creates the perfect matte effect, while also giving a very soft and natural-looking finish.


Last but not least, I have to mention the L'BRI PURE n' NATURAL shampoo and conditioner. Just like their skincare, the hair care products at L'BRI contain healing aloe as the first ingredient. I love how it is free of sodium lauryl sulfate.

There are a lot of "moisturizing" hair care products out there which claim to contain all sorts of beneficial oils and botanicals, but a lot of them also contain sodium lauryl sulfate as the number one ingredient. Did you know that this particular ingredient causes dryness? Not cool, right? Go with L'BRI for a more affordable moisturizing hair care system. Not only did it moisturize my hair, but it made it sleek and shiny as well. And by the way, it smells great too...a nice fresh scent!
