Things around here are super busy with last minute holiday orders {we are shipping right through the holidays} but I wanted to wish you a very merry Christmas and leave you with some holiday kisses {a smattering of my favorite colors of the past year}. This is probably going to be my last post on Trust Your Style until after Christmas, but I will be posting over on Magical Mined, so make sure to stop by!

Speaking of magical, the sunsets have been extra beautiful lately. I took this photo hiking above Boat Canyon in Laguna this past weekend, and as you can see Laguna Shimmer and our Magical Mined Nail Color trio names are not just a figment of my imagination. Erika over at Cat Eyes and Skinny Jeans wrote the best description of the nuances of our shimmering nail colors that I have read to date!

Before I sign off, I also want to thank the many bloggers who included our handbags, polish and jewels in their roundups! Such a treat to be included in these lovely holiday wish lists! I feel like Christmas came early this year!

xoxo:

exPresso included our Thalia Shopper in her delectable Weekly Gems and the Salt Creek Mini-Wallet in her Christmas Gift Guide; Fashioned by Love included our Diamond Drop Star earrings in her chic black Christmas roundup; Design Addict Mom matched our bags to all sorts of lovely rooms; Madison at Fashion Tales scooped up our Salt Creek Mini-Wallet and Diamond Drop earrings in her Holiday Style Guide; Rolala Loves featured our Nail Bliss Trio in her Beauty Enthusiasts holiday round-up; Chic n Cheap Living featured our Laguna Winter Surf Nail Trio in her Holiday Gift Guide and The Dainty Dolly House featured our Diamond Drop earrings and Laguna Winter Surf Trio in her Holiday Wish List. Last but not least, Georgette Magazine surprised us by including our Scandalous Lover Mini-Crossbody in their Christmas Gift Guide!

I also wanted to give a special thank you to Lucky Magazine, Georgette Magazine and Shomara Roosblat from Vogue Italia for the lovely features this month!

Merry Christmas! Hope Santa is good to you this year!

I can see that her arms are so thin. This is a fascinating painting. The white floral dress is so pretty. Your drawings that you share in IG Mary Jo are amazing.

This has always been one of my favorite paintings – it’s so serene and peaceful. I love the set you created inspired from it – especially the nifty makeup subsection!

I love the back stories you always provide for the art work you feature Mary Jo. They’re always so fascinating! I should really look into a silk pillowcase 🙂

What a lovely painting and an equally lovely story behind it.
Nice post.

Hi! Glad you’re back! Thanks for popping by today to let me know! I have seen that painting (well, reproductions) and I never knew the backstory. Amazing. You can feel her determination come off the canvas!

Never seen this painting before… such a touching story behind!
Thanks for the cosmetics tips too! Btw, I’ve never used an eye-liner as a pencil yet.. just wonder if it dries up quickly?
take care!

For the Figment Art Festival, one of my friends participated in an “Art Comes to Life” piece, and she posed as this painting! Funny enough, I recently visited this at the MoMa – such beautiful work.

Wow I never knew the story behind this painting. But I remember this painting as a kid and how haunting it was. Yes so many people in our society think they have problems but they don’t, they just have issues. Thanks for the info!

I only remembered this painting after looking at it for a while. I never noticed details like the thin arms and the individual blades of grass before. She really is so strong and the pillow cases also exude quiet elegance too!
