Dream Polish

I never really understood why some beauty companies would charge $25 or more for a nail polish. I mean, sure some nail polish is more high quality then others but can a little bottle of nail polish really be worth that high of a price point?

To answer my own question... YES... nail polish can definitly be worth it!

I recently tried new Estee Lauder Pure Color Nail Laquer in Fuschia Flame. It goes on like a dream! Seriously, I've never enjoyed putting on a nail polish as much as I loved applying this one. It goes on perfectly, makes you feel like a professional manicurest. It comes in a variety of fun shades. This one in particular shows up more on the red side then the pink/purple side.

Have you tried higher priced nail polish? Was it worth it?

So Psyched about Sew Psyched!

I'm sporting Essie nail polish in "Sew Psyched" today. A fabulous army green colour that I'm loving for Spring! It goes on perfectly with two coats and hasn't chipped once in 24 hours which we all know is a feat in itself.
Sorry about the poor quality picture. The phone on my camera isn't the greatest!
Tried this colour yet? Want to?

Wake Up Sleepy Head

Because sometimes early mornings are such a drag and because sometimes putting on makeup can feel cakey instead of light and refreshing.... New Almay Wake Up Hydrating Makeup is a nice new addition to my morning routine. I'll admit, the way this powder feels when you put it on takes a little getting used to. It feels damp compared to other loose powders but after I applied it a couple of times I started to really like it. It feels like it actually sticks to your face which in return will create better coverage. It also does have a great "wake me up" feel to it since it feels so refreshing. I'm liking this new spin on powder. How about you?

Kiss Me I'm (part) Irish

It's St. Patrick's day and in the name of St. Patricks day beauty I have decorated my nails in what I believe to be the best possible nail polish to wear on this day.
SpaRitual in "Earth Matters."
This picture doesn't show the true brightness of this shade, but trust me, it's over the top Irish perfection.... and although today is probably the only day of the year I would ever consider wearing this colour, I am thoroughly enjoying it every time I glance down at my nails.

I'm a Dressaholic.... I know for some girls it's shoes... for others it's purses... for me it's 100% dresses. When I'm looking for shoes, purses or any other item I'm cautious, I search for a good deal, I'm picky. But when I find a dress I love all bets are off. Rational thinking out the door. I have to have!!!

I discovered this site and I can't express my delight over the dress options this site has to offer. No matter the occasion, no matter your style, this site will have a dress for EVERYONE. There are so many adorable things to choose from.

I'm swooning over these little numbers:



OvaThe Shoulda

Cloudy Day

Ivory Dream

Mad Men

Designer Inspired

I fell in love with Kate Hudsons Marc Jacobs Resort 2011 Collection dress on the cover of Elle in November. This site has a knockoff which is also very cute!

A couple of the items are out of stock but you can sign up on the website to be notified when they are back in stock!

Currently trying to control my online shopping urge.

Wish me luck!

Craving The Heat?

I hate to talk about the weather. I feel like its a very overly common topic of conversation lately... around March when we are all terribly sick of winter and dying for the first signs of Spring. Well here you go:

If you liked Beyonce Heat you will LOVE Beyonce Heat Rush. They have similarities but Heat Rush is a more fresh, light, sweet, tropical version of the two. You can really smell the delicious blood orange notes and sticking with the trend of how popular the colour orange is right now (with everything from lipstick to clothes) the bottle makes a great display item. Need to find a dress the same colour as the one Beyonce is wearing in this ad!
