new year's eve beauty: dramatic makeup

Greet the new year with a fresh face by pumping up the drama on your new year's makeup.

Try a dramatic smokey eye made festive with glitter eyeshadow. Pick a swoon-worthy shade and back it up with smudge-proof mascara and waterproof eyeliner to keep your eyes flashing into the wee hours! Tip: keep your lips neutral to balance the look.

Not in the mood for a moody eye? Go bold with your lips to ring in the new year by making your mark. Try a bright colour like vibrant fuschia to make the most of your statement smooch. Tip: prep your pout with a lip scrub to make sure your colour goes on evenly and prime your lips to make it last.

blossom's fabulous friends {Anna with Love}

We are so excited for the lovely Anna Tsoulogiannis from 'Anna with Love' who has just re-launched her online fine art photography store. Blossom was first introduced to Anna on instagram and was so impressed with her photography talent that Shauna {blossom's equally fabulous owner} chose Anna to do Blossom Lounge's 2012 winter lookbook. Anna is such a genuine talent and we wish her huge success in her new endeavor! Here's a sneak peek!

Anna is a Toronto based portrait, still life & lifestyle photographer and we know
you'll love Anna's new prints as much as we do!

{holiday tunes} she & him

We're looking forward to Toronto's Christmas Market in Distillery District that kicks off tomorrow! Be sure to visit us at our new location: 24 Tank House LaneIn the mean time, get in to the holiday spirit with a cover of "Baby,  It's Cold Outside" by Zooey Deschanel's band,  She and Him!

The secret to the perfect hostess gift is neutral and sophisticated. 
Here are a few of our favourite hostess gifts to give this holiday season. 

1. Lollia Calm Candle : We chose this candle for two reasons. The first, because there's a lot that comes with a name. Calm is the first thing a hostess wants to feel once everyone leaves their home. Secondly, like the other Lollia candles, their scents are mild and have a subtle fragrance that will fill and warm the room. Ok... and one more reason. The design makes it virtually impossible for someone to not find the perfect place for it in their home. 

2. Mor Candied Vanilla Almond : Bar soaps add that touch of elegance to any bathroom. This Mor soap is both stunning in and out of it's packaging. Infused with the scent of candied vanilla almond, it's the perfectly soft fragrance to have in your home. 

3. William Sonoma Cupcake Mix : Why? Because who doesn't like cupcakes .... but seriously. It takes the ordinary boxed cake mix out of the box and into a ... can ... but in a big way. It has great packaging and comes in flavours that go beyond the traditional chocolate and vanilla. ** Also a great DIY alternative to the usual layered hot chocolate in a jar **

4. Teavana 12 Holidays of Teas : Love these tea sets because they offer a variety of flavours and are great conversation starters. It also avoids the worry of choosing a tea that the hostess might not like... now she has plenty to choose from. 

5. Swarovski 2012 Tree Ornament : If diamonds are a girl's best friend ... crystals are like a girl's best friend's sister. Looks the same but without the commitment. This ornament is the perfect addition for anyone's tree and will be a reminder of your friendship every holiday season. 

6. Kai Linen Spray : Again, a subtly soft fragrance that won't damage delicates or offend any noses.
