Introducing my new YouTube Channel - FromSassiWhoLivedIt

I have been working on a new YouTube channel for the past few weeks.

I originally wanted to have one channel only, and mix it up a little - travel, food, beauty, handbags... just a little bit of everything.  

Unfortunately, this is not working well.  It seems that few people are interested in seeing a variety of videos like this.  So I finally gave in, and from now on I will have a beauty channel The Sassi Wench which will include videos on topics like makeup, handbags and hauls.  To get an idea of these kinds of videos, click on the video below:

My new channel, however, will include videos on travel, day in the life vlogs, decorating, shopping, food and restaurants, doll collecting, animals, and anything else I feel like doing!  You can check it out here:

I hope you enjoy it!

Black and White Theme Birthday Party

Last weekend we attended a black and white themed birthday party.  I had seen this on TV, but I had never attended one before.  The effect was beautiful, although someone did say it looked like a funeral, Lol!  

But in fact everyone looked very elegant, and later on in the evening when someone donned a pink sweatshirt, the shock of pink in a sea of black was quite startling.

In my video, linked above, I filmed the birthday cake and the food, which was a finger buffet with assorted dips and Crudités. 
A black and white theme birthday party!
The white of the cake was fondant.  If someone suffers from allergies, paper flowers are a great alternative to real flowers.

A black "ribbon" topped the cake.
Dark chocolate cupcakes, and lemon vanilla cupcakes.
Black and White candles.
American's love balloons at parties.
Dark Chocolate and Milk Chocolate.
And to end the evening... a  little Ménage à Trois.

March 2011 Birchbox: Upgrade

Hello ladies!

It's my first post in about two weeks - I'm slowly recovering from a nasty bout of the flu, and you can hear this in my voice in my video - sorry!  But at least I got my voice back!

I'm also behind on responding to comments on my blog and my videos, but I'll get there, I promise!

This month, I didn't get any cosmetics in my Birchbox (cosmetics are my favorite!), but I did get some interesting things, especially the Marvis Classic Mint Toothpaste which is made in Italy.  I'll try it out and let you know if I like it.

The Upgrade Birchbox includes:
Blow - Thickening Mist
Marvis - Classic Mint Toothpaste
Pangea Organics - Lip Balm
Pangea Organics - Egyptian Geranium Scrub
Pomega5 - Daily Revitalizing Conentrate
Birchbox Treat - Brow Brush

The March 2011 Birch Box.
Birchbox Theme for March 2011: Upgrade.
This Birchbox does not contain any cosmetics.
Blow Thickening Mist - it's a lightweight, volumizing spray.
An extra item was included this month - Pangea Organics Egyptian Geranium Scrub!
I'm thrilled with this Birchbox!
