Nails of the Week : Favorite Nude Polish!


Hey, everyone!  Here's Nails of the Week, featuring my favorite nude polish of all-time.  I love writing these nail posts and figured I was long overdue!  I kept things pretty simple... my favorite nail looks always are :)


For this manicure, I started with OPI Barefoot in Barcelona which is definitely the sole reason for this post.  I never thought my fair skin would suit nude polish, but that was until I found this gem.  Two coats were more than enough to create an opaque wash of color.  It's the perfect nude... not too light or yellow-based and very flattering.

Then to top it off, I sealed the darling nude with my most used top coat.  Essie Gel Setter Top Coat has been a long time love.  It leaves my nails protected with a nice shine.

4 Days Later... no chipping whatsoever! Such a great polish :)
Those are my nails of the week!  What's your current mani?  Let me know below :)

I hope you enjoyed!  Feel free to follow my site for future posts.  As always, thanks for stopping by :)  Have a great day and talk with you soon!

Lots of Love,

Tea Tuesday September - TAZO Green Ginger Tea Review


Hey guys!  I can't believe we're already in September and it's time for our monthly tea review!  Tea Tuesday is my longest running series and I love sharing new teas :)

For September I chose TAZO Green Ginger Tea.  Green tea is one of my favorite types of teas and I love the hint of ginger and lemon.  This isn't a tea I drink daily, but it's perfect when you're feeling under the weather.

TAZO describes "this bright green tea blend has a kick from ginger & a sweet note of pear".  I can't say I can taste any pear, but there's a subtle sweet flavor that pairs well with a spoonful of honey.  

Like I said, I prefer to drink this tea when I'm sick since ginger is known for calming an upset stomach and can help with any bloating.  Plus, honey added to any tea soothes a sore throat.  This is a must-have during cold season!


SIPPING DETAILS

Ingredients: Green Teas, Natural Flavors, Ginger and Lemongrass
Steep Time: 3 minutes


I really enjoyed September's tea and I hope you give it a go!  What are some of your favorites?

LOVE FOR 5 - August's Favorites 2017


Hey, everyone!  The end of August is among us and it's time to round up my favorites!  This month my LOVE FOR 5 is dedicated to all beauty products, including some long time obsessions.  I hope you enjoy!  Let's hop in :)

MAC Heroine (left) & YSL Crushed Orange (right)
MAC's Heroine is the most gorgeous purple lipstick I've found.  It's the perfect shade of purple and I love the matte formula!  It's long wearing and not over drying on the lips... thank goodness!

2.  YSL Volupté Tint-In-Oil in Crushed Orange
The second lip favorite goes to this beauty... my most beloved lip oil from YSL.  This is so comfortable, gives nice wash of color and even leaves a beautiful watermelon tint that lasts for hours on the lips.  This doesn't leave my purse!  Now I want more!

This is my holy grail for all the right reasons!  It's everything you wish for.. it lengths, lifts and adds amazing volume to each lash.  I don't even use an eyelash curler!

Here's one of the best masks in my collection.  I've tried many overnight masks and this is THE BEST.  It smells amazing and works wonders for dry skin!

I love all Hempz body lotions and this new limited edition verison is no exception!  The zesty scent is perfect for summer and I love the moisturizing and non-greasy formula.  It's been my most used lotion all season!

There are my August Favorites!  What are some of yours?  Let me know in the comments!
