Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I 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.

sensationail gel nail polish heirloom lilac 516x1024 SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Giveaway!

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 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

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

Memorial Day Mani: Essie Mochacino

Posted on by daneen in Featured, Nail Polish, Nails | Leave a comment

essie mochacino Memorial Day Mani: Essie MochacinoPeep my polish. It’s Essie Mochacino, which is described as “a perky gray with shimmer.” It reminds me of Mama Spoiled Pretty’s favorite shade, Essie Chinchilly – except warmer and sparkly. I bought it at CVS during a recent beauty haul (more on that later). I think I’ve found a new fave. What do you think?
