I didn't get the chance to post this on Christmas Eve, but here's the Happy Holidays edition of the Top 20 IFB members' posts from last week, including mine on SHOWstudio's Design_download. Enjoy!
The Happy Holidays Edition
Edited by Retrochick
Well, I suppose I shall start this week's Links à la Mode with this:
It’s Christmas Eve and I’m sure visions of sugar plums are dancing in everyone’s heads as they trim the tree and sip mulled wine in preparation for tomorrow's frivolities. All too soon it’ll all be over and brain power sapped from too many TV Christmas Specials, you’ll be wanting some mental sustenance, and that’s where we come in.
Essentially that’s a long winded way of me saying that what follows are some lovely links to keep you busy over the Christmas period.
M.I.S.S and JeweleryWhore have D.I.Y ideas to keep your mind and body occupied, ID Style and Little Miss Make Up show you how to ramp up the glamour in your make up bag, whilst Daily Diva Dish and The Working Wardrobe will help you plan what to wear for New Years Eve and that dreaded day you return to work.
If you run out of entertainment here then you should always check out the full Links à la Mode thread for more yummy fashion goodness.
I hope you all have a fantastic holiday and that Santa brings you everything you asked for!
