The Beauty Spotlight Team’s Happy New Year Round-Up!


(Muffin has a clear preference for TINY boxes. I honestly didn’t think she could possibly fit into this one!)

Hey everyone,

Can you believe the first week of 2014 is over? How was yours? I’ve had a great break, but now I can’t wait to get back to work! The site will be down for maybe a day on Monday. It is finally getting a face lift! I hope you’re looking forward to the new layout as much as I am!

Now onto the first round of the Beauty Spotlight Team round-up of 2014: 

Cindy from Prime Beauty is head-over-stilettos with a fabulous new foundation. SENNA’s Lasting Illusion Foundation has a satin finish perfect for the over 40 woman.

Carrie from eyeliner on a cat has chosen her favorite perfumes of 2013… you know you want to see what’s on her list!

There is no question that Helen from Lola’s Secret Beauty Blog hasn’t the ability to resist exquisite luxury face oils, but sometimes one comes along that is so extraordinary that she has to shout about it from the rooftop! Such is the case with Aftelier Perfumes glorious new Ylang Face Elixir!

When a company’s name is Your Best Face aka YBF you know that they have a great line of skincare. Beauty Info Zone wants you to know about two of their newest and greatest products plus they have an an international giveaway for you to enter and a coupon code to share.

    Happy new year!!
    Your cat is so sute!!! :)
    Curious about the new lay out, keep us posted! x

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Happy new year, Petra! I’ll work as fast as I can, so hopefully the site only has to be down for a day or less!

  • Catherine

    AHHH MUFFIN ::so much cuddles::

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Teehee it’s so funny how happy she is in that teeny tiny box!

  • jenn @Abeautifulzen

    yay for a new layout! i really want to re-do my banner but can’t think of a good tag line….thats the only thing holding me up and finding someone to do it for not too many $$$s…

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jenn, yeah I’ve been thinking the most difficult part about having a blog is trying to come up with what to put on that “about” page LOL Header/banner isn’t very expensive to design though. Also, Blogger layout already costs about a third of a WordPress one, so that’s good news for you!

  • expatmuaddict

    Cant wait to see your new layout yey! Off to read some of these posts-especially about the pale foundation!! xx

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Stacey, yeah Kate has a nice collection there! I hope you’ll find something interesting :)

  • beautiesatwork

    cats and their boxes 😀 I stil don’t get why they do that

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I think cramped space makes them feel safe? I know children like boxes, too! A friend posted this photo on Facebook a while ago. She bought her kid (cutest little girl you’ll ever see) am indoor slide, but the kid was way more interested in the box the slide came in!

  • birtegovarts

    I also have a cat named Muffin! Cuteness overload ;-).

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Eee how does he/she look???

      • birtegovarts

        He’s grey and chubby. You can see pictures in my Instagram-post of december!

        • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Awww I just found it! He’s adorable! <3

  • Sofia

    Well Muffin does fit in there 😉 So cute!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha the smaller the box the more obsessed she is!

      • Sofia

        Ah I caught you! I wanted to see if you had a new post this morning and something made me think you were doing a makeover. I LOVE IT!!!

        • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Yay, I’m glad to hear you like it, Sofia! I wanted something very clean and simple this time 😉

  • Shari

    Totally off-topic but I love the new layout, Sunny!!! :-) YAY!!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Shari! I wanted something simple and minimal 😉

  • Guest

    Your layout is so similar to
    Copy much?

  • Kiss & Make-up

    Your lay-out changed! And I love it! Nice job, Sunny!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Melissa!

  • xLoveHappyx

    I might have to check out that Amazeballs post LOL Happy New Year and I wish my cat would do cute things like that…

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha aww I’m sure it does! Bring home a small box and see what happens 😉

  • Icaria

    Hey mom does this make me look fat? LOL Muffin is too cute for words!!!

    Looove the new layout! xx :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha Muffin actually weighs 4.5 kilos so she is by no means a small girl, but you really don’t see it because her body is SO long! My vet predicted she’d be pretty big when she was a kitten. She was actually tiny all the way till she was one, but between one and two she stretched out length-wise!

      Thanks, Helene! Regular posting resumes tomorrow!

  • Natalie

    These lists are so great. I leave being able to get a list of good posts.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Yup I love sitting down to a good bunch of posts on Sunday morning 😉

  • Emi at Project Swatch

    Muffin could not be any cuter!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Emi! For once she’s not looking at me with this “you stink” face 😉
