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.

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.

moroccanoil body collection Moroccanoil Body CollectionYou 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. CONTINUE READING

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
