TRISH MCEVOY 2014 Holiday

During December I attended two Trish McEvoy events at the nearby Nordstrom store (I purchased two new products at each), and received a lovely set of Trish cosmetics from my husband for Chistmas – I am combining all these items for this blog. The cosmetics department had a beauty event the first of the month […]
