Memorial Day weekend, a new dress and patriotic nails!

For me, and my group of friends, this means the start of summer. It’s the beginning of the warmer weather, beach, pool, BBQ, picnics, etc.

Although, it’s a joyous time where millions of Americans are getting together to enjoy the weather, friends, family and food, it’s also a time to remember what this country stands for. Please take some time this weekend to remember the lives lost representing our country, the families of these fallen soldiers, and the young men and women still out there, enlisting and fighting.  ❤ Thank you for all you do.  Continue reading

Gel manicures, Lane Bryant, M.A.C Viva Glam 1 lipstick and loving myself.

Guys. Red lipstick. Omg. Why have I been so frightened to embark on this wonderful and glorious shade?

I got my Mac Viva Glam 1 lipstick in the mail and I am absolutely head over heals in love with it. It’s perfect for my skin tone. Not too light. Not too dark. It’s a gorgeous and classic brick red with just the right amount of pigmentation. The one and only downside with the product is the dryness. If you don’t like dry lips (who does?) put a light coat of your favorite lip balm underneath. I personally use EOS in melon flavor and it works great. If you’d rather top off your matte lip shade with a lip gloss for a more fierce look, do it up! I, unfortunately, do not have a photo to share but the next time I get dolled up with that beastly color, I’ll be sure to take a few snapshots! 😉  Continue reading

Hide & Go Chic nail polish review and swatch! ..And some other things!

Let me start off this post with saying that nothing has been going my way today. It’s frigid and windy here in Connecticut. It’s cold inside because it’s a drafty building and according to maintenance the heat cannot keep up with the wind.  Apparently the purge valve in our unit needs to be replaced as soon as possible or we will be dealing with one hell of a mess in the bedroom. I was advised about a half hour ago that the water was shut off due to a pipe burst of some sort in a different unit. I’m hoping by the end of this entry it will be turned back on. Argh! I feel like it’s been one thing after another. Anyway, first world problems, right? Onward and beyond!  Continue reading

Maybelline Holographic Color Show in Lavender Luster swatch!

Maybelline Holographic Color Show in Lavender Luster

Just wanted to post a quick photo of a new nail polish I bought about a week ago. I scored a Maybelline Holographic Color Show in Lavender Luster for just $0.88 at Target. I love, love, love this new polish of mine. It goes on extremely smoothly, the formula doesn’t clump and it’s not watery. It’s a versatile polish that can be used day or night. I love them so much that I’m hoping my Target has a few more lying around somewhere. The regular price on these polishes are $3.99 so if you see them at the store at a discounted price, I suggest you grab them before they are gone! A good friend of mine scored two of these beauties for $1.49 each which is still an amazing price. Always, always, always scour your Target clearance sections for hidden finds! Can’t wait to go again and see what other treasures I can dig up!

Essie – Find Me An Oasis

Just wanted to throw up a picture and nail polish review. I just got this polish last Saturday and I absolutely LOVE it. I wasn’t sure at first because it was a bit streaky. I had to do three coats. Some nails required four because of the amount of polish on the brush. It’s a bit difficult to tell by the picture but it’s a nice powdery blue. Light colors often look odd on my skin but this is definitely a keeper! I thought the snow covered ground was a nice background 😉  Continue reading
