Urban Decay has created an epic sequel to it's best selling Naked Palette with this brand new beauty-must-have eyeshadow palette perfect for the die-hard makeup lover. This highly anticipated new eyeshadow palette features a sleek art school inspired champagne coloured metal case along with a Good Karma shadow/crease brush exclusive to this kit. Featuring five brand new shades like snakebite and YDK, sexy shimmery neutrals and 3 matte blending shades including a matte black called black out. As if that wasn't enough Urban Decay also included a travel sized Lip Gloss Junkie in Naked.  Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette is the hottest makeup must-have this Christmas. But beware it has the power to turn any housewife from a boring betty to a sexy starlet in the blink of an eye.

For the Desperate Housewife...  who maybe a little diet ditzy we love the New York Times Best Seller Skinny Bitch. This book is a no-nonsense tough-love guide for savvy girls who want to stop eating crap and start looking fabulous! Written by modelling agent Rory Freedman and model turned nutritionist Kim Barnouin. The president of PETA Ingrid Newkirk says "Skinny Bitch combines a 'take no prisoners' attitude with cogent analysis and scientific proof to make an engaging, wickedly irreverent, and iron-clad case for eating healthfully. If I had it in my power, I'd provide a free copy to every young woman in the developed world; we could then become, instead of the fattest next generation in history, the healthiest." This book will motivate her to start the new year on a Skinny Bitch mission to become a skinny sexy housewife... And everyone knows that a happy wife equals a happy life!
