GLOWING Skin...And How To Get It (Pt. 2)

All right that winter is officially here with its gloomy, overcast days, chill winds whistling through empty branches and shortened daylight hours, we probably need to use some type of product to add a little "spark" to our complexion!  Hopefully you all read part 1 of this article; if not, click on this LINK to find out how to jumpstart the process.  In this installment, I'll show you some of the products that I have used to help impart that coveted healthy glow...

Well, I finally admit it...I'm having a love affair... with Pure Ice nail polishes!  Today's installment is entitled Love, a really beautiful creamy-textured lacquer.

Hello my Lovely People:  you all know the saying.  "...may break my bones but names (or words) will never hurt me".  *BULL CRAP*!  Words that roll so trippingly off the tongue of one person can, in fact, deeply wound another.

As some of you may have guessed, I suffer from time to time with depressive episodes.  Not the short 'n sweet, couple of days kind of depressive mood; I'm talking about the long, lingering, black-hole type of mood that lasts anywhere from a few weeks to a few months or longer.

PINK (Mani) WEDNESDAY: Casting Call by Wet 'N Wild

Hello everyone!  It's another PINK Wednesday and I've got a very affordable, very nice polish for you today.  It's Casting Call by Wet 'N Wild.  A mid-toned, victorian pink this polish was a nice surprise for me.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Covergirl Blast Flipstick

So Lovelies, have any of you tried the new Covergirl Blast Flipsticks yet?  This new, double ended lipcolor is the latest in the "Blast" family.  There are 13 shades in the line and I've purchased three of them:   (from top to bottom) 815 Flashy (plum w/pink shimmer), 830 Tease (dark-ish orange toned red w/light golden-peachy shimmer), and 855 Minx (bronze w/light copper shimmer).

Good Morning my lovely readers!  Since I haven't done a FOTD for quite awhile I decided to get out the most basic of colors (black and white) and play!  I had no particular destination in mind, I just wanted to see what I could come up with.

Hey Lovelies!  It's another Monday and I thought it would be a good idea to post another entry into the "For A Beautiful Makeup..." series.  Today's article is all about how to get that "glowing" skin look.

PRODUCT REVIEW: Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo Creme Eyeshadow

Hello my Lovelies and a happy day to you all!  Today I will be reviewing a new product just released by Maybelline called the 24HR Color Tattoo.  This is a creme eyeshadow product, similar to the MAC Paint Pot. There are ten shades in the collection; I have six of them:   top row (L to R) 20 Painted Purple, 30 Pomegranate Punk and 05 Too Cool.  Bottom row (L to R):  40 Tenacious Teal, 15 Audacious Asphalt,  15 Tough As Taupe.

ACCESSORIES: A Few of My Favorite Things!

Hello once again, my Lovelies!  Hope you're all having a great Monday.  Today's post is going to be about accessories--I have a YouTube subscriber by the name of Ginikkie that asked me about my jewelry accessories:  where I get them, how to wear them and such.  I was originally going to post a video in response to her query, but since I am currently having some issues with my vid-cam software (GGGRRRR!) I thought I would answer her questions here.

PINK (Mani) WEDNESDAY: First Love by Pure Ice

Good evening my Lovelies!  I'm a little late in getting this post off, as I've been endeavoring to add some new things to my blog; unfortunately, one thing worked and one thing didn't work and I've spent the better part of the day trying to finesse the thing that didn't work--to no avail (darn it!)

Happy New Year to all of you!  I have definitely missed you all so much and as I write this first post of 2012, I pray that all of you are well and happy.  I feel compelled to write this  blog to sort of explain where I've been for the past several  months.
