Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What’s On My Wish List

Posted on by daneen in Fashion, Featured, Nail Polish, Nails, Sale, Shoes | 1 Comment

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today and here’s what’s on my wish list:

bebe Mixed Media Trench Coat Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Whats On My Wish Listbebe Mixed Media Trench Coat, $119 (after sale: $198)
When I received the Anniversary Sale catalog a few weeks back and spied this trench, it was love at first sight. The faux-leather sleeves are FIERCE and I can’t resist an asymmetrical zipper, so if this ends up fitting (sadly, it doesn’t come in Petite sizes), I’m bringing this bad girl home.

DV by Dolce Vita Folly Bootie Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Whats On My Wish ListDV by Dolce Vita ‘Folly’ Bootie, $66.90 (after sale: $99.95)
Again…another love-at-first-glance situation (it was also in the catalog). Give me a haircalf bootie in an animal print with an exposed zipper and I’m a happy gal. I don’t really need this boot, but I want it. Truly, madly, deeply.

Hue Denim Leggings Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Whats On My Wish ListHue Denim Leggings, $25.90 (after sale: $39)
Come fall and winter, I live in leggings – and Hue makes some of the highest quality, affordable and fashion forward styles. I already own two pairs of these leggings and I love them (my mom and sister own pairs too). What makes them a must-have is how they suck you in and make your legs and butt look firm and toned. It’s like a denim legging pair of Spanx. Speaking of Spanx… CONTINUE READING

Polished: OPI Thanks a Windmillion

OPI Thanks a Windmillion Nail Polish 1024x682 Polished: OPI Thanks a Windmillion

I’m not very good at subtle nail polish. I never get a french manicure – too stuffy for me – and I never really got into the habit of using pale pink or nude polish. My nails are either bare, sporting a coat of clear polish, or covered in a great color. I think of nail polish as an accessory – why be boring?!

My allegiance to bright polishes was swayed when I tried Thanks a Windmillion from OPI’s Holland collection. This pale sage green is gorgeous, and looks extra interesting when paired with a matte top coat. I wore this religiously all spring, and am looking forward to bringing it back in the fall to contrast all of my go-to dark colors.

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. CONTINUE READING

SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Starter Kit Review

sensationail invincible gel polish starter kit SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Starter Kit ReviewAs 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. CONTINUE READING

Polished: Purple Posy by Sally Hansen

sally hansen Prabal Gurung nail polish Polished: Purple Posy by Sally HansenDesigner 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! CONTINUE READING

Nicole by OPI: Kourt Is Red-y For A Pedi

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Featured, Kim Kardashian, Nail Polish, Nails | 3 Comments

nicole by opi kourt is red y for a pedi Nicole by OPI: Kourt Is Red y For A PediI am absolutely obsessed with Nicole by OPI’s Kourt is Red-y For A Pedi - from the Kardashian Kolors collection. I typically gravitate towards edgy shades, but I’ve been seeing a lot of celebs sporting orange-y red manicures and I couldn’t help but hop on the bandwagon. So I reached into the recesses of my nail polish collection and unearthed this gem, which OPI sent me for review last year (better late than never, right?). CONTINUE READING
