You know the old saying that when you love something, you should set it free? Well, I’m no fool. When I find something I adore and can’t live without, I don’t part with it. I get the hook up for my friends, so they can share my joy.
This week, I’m partnering with Nailene and giving THREE lucky ladies the opportunity to try (and fall in love with) SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish, which I raved about last week. Side note: it’s been a week and my mani looks exactly the same as day 1 – no chips and still high watt shine. (more…)
You know I love a good giveaway and I know you love ‘em too – which is why I wanted to share this too-good-to-miss contest that ends tomorrow. Perhaps, one of my girls can get seriously spoiled pretty.

Next week, LUSH launches its first color collection, Emotional Brilliance.
This line consists of 13 liquid lip colors ($22.95), 11 liquid eyeliners ($22.95) and 6 cream eyeshadows ($22.95) and is less about wearing makeup that’s in-season or on-trend and more about wearing colors that shape your mood. (more…)
You know that…
OMFG, I can’t live without it!
How did I ever survive before this?
This is the answer to my prayers!
Was someone reading my mind?
Why didn’t I think of this?
Where do I get more?
…feeling you got the first time you tried Moroccanoil? Well, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you need to go read this post and then get yourself a bottle. But if you’re familiar with the miracle elixir that is Moroccanoil, you’re going to love my latest discoveries.
So a few weeks ago, a surprise package from the Moroccanoil geniuses showed up on my doorstep. Waiting for me inside was their new bath and body collection, which includes Body Buff, Intense Hydrating Treatment, Hand Cream, Cleansing Bar and Body Souffle.
I must admit, even though I’ve been a Moroccanoil nut since 2008 (I own almost every single hair product), it never occurred to me that they would or should venture into body care. Their products are so amazing and transformative for hair that I figured they’d just concentrate on that. But if they limited themselves to my myopic thinking, the world would be missing out on some seriously Holy Grail body products. (more…)
As a busy mom who loves the look of fresh nail polish, but has neither the time for regular salon visits nor the time to invest in an at-home mani, I was very excited by the idea of a DIY gel manicure kit. So when Nailene offered me their SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Starter Kit to try, I jumped at the opportunity.
Yesterday, I tested the system – with gorgeous results. In less time than it typically takes for me to paint my nails and wait for them to dry, I gave myself a SensatioNail manicure and pedicure with mirror-like shine that promises to last 2 weeks with no chipping. (more…)
NARS introduces the Foreplay Cheek Palette, created exclusively for Sephora.
Inspired by NARS best-selling blush, Foreplay is Orgasm deconstructed. This palette includes a matte peach, a matte pink and highlighting gold to create your own signature Orgasm glow. (more…)
Designer Prabal Gurung collaborated with Sally Hansen to create three nail polish colors this spring, and Purple Posy was one of them. This color is a violet creme color, and it is unlike anything I have seen around. I had to have it!
I must admit that I was skeptical, because Sally Hansen products don’t always have the best staying power. I took a risk because it is a fresh color, and I adore Prabal Gurung’s designs – he can do no wrong! (more…)
The much anticipated Old Navy $1 Flip Flop One Day Sale is finally here!
This Saturday, June 30th, all Old Navy stores across the country will be hosting the annual $1 Flip Flop promotion. (more…)
A few weeks ago Bite Beauty sent over two of their new Lush Lip Tints for me to try. They have a bunch of colors that look cute – I got cherry and black currant and I really like both. They are lightly scented, and go on really smooth. They’re hydrating but not super slick or sticky like some glosses can be. The formula also has some staying power, which was nice. And the shades are flattering and not too bright. (more…)
A few weeks ago, I posted a pic of this Max & Cleo dress I was planning to wear to a wedding and solicited your advice for complementary shoes. The resounding consensus was that I should jazz it up with a pair of colorful kicks. But while I loved many of your shoe recommendations, my wide, flat feet started to hurt just looking at those stilettos. So I decided to use your suggestions as style inspiration and search for similar heels in a less intimidating height. Unfortunately, 99.9% of the cute heels out there are too narrow for my Flintstone feet, not to mention ridiculously sky high. Seriously, how women can stand in these things, let alone stroll? Inquiring minds want to know.
I went to Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, DSW, Lord & Taylor and Bloomingdale’s – and came up with nada. I was this close to switching the dress – all because I couldn’t find appropriate shoes – until I happened upon the Sofft Ramona II Pump. (more…)
