Image
**Press Samples**
Finishing up this magnificent collection is 6 more beauties that are in the Party Girls collection. You will find that so many of these colors are perfect for both everyday work AND that after work party. Join in me in checking out the last 6 loves of Party Girls!
KELSEY
Ummm hey bubblegum pink. Kelsey is a gorgeous, muted pink that fits into any holiday collection. I love the brightness of this color and how it doesn't lean purple!
I really like that Zoya included this in their holiday collection. A bright color is much needed for any holiday manicure.

LANDON
Zoya describes this as a deep aubergine cream. I love this color! I am a purple lover and this shade is perfect! Its almost like a lighter, redder plum. Eggplant would be the best match of a real world object I can describe an aubergine color.
I would use this pretty color pretty much all winter long through all my parties, too! I love the purple shade and I love how perfect it looks with my skin tone.

Sephora Play! November Box

Image
**Bought It**
I literally fall in love with Sephora each time I get my box. I immediately want to www.sephora.com and buy all the things. So, marketing team... props to you! This months box is pretty great and I can't wait to share with you what I thought. Survival of the Chillest is the theme! Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum This is a ultra hydrating serum with grape water concentrated to bring back the moisture you need in your skin. I have used this a couple of time with my nighttime routine and I have noticed a difference. I have made an effort to add an extra hydrating factor into my skin routine in the winter because dry skin for me = breakouts. Vinosource S.O.S. can be used morning and night, too. I do like this product, but I am still on the fence about purchasing a full size because I am a derma e lover.  Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara I actually loooooove this mascara! If you have ever read any of my other mascara posts, you will know …

Plums the Word... Says Sally Hansen!

**Press Samples**
I am so glad to get into the vamp season! Sally Hansen is showing off some of their vampiest shades with Plums the Word collection. I am showing off one of the Sally Hansen gel polishes and one of the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure colors.  Society Ruler This is a rich burgundy creme that just screams sweater weather! I love the Complete Salon Manicure collection because they usually are one coaters and their brushes are just perfect.  I have been wearing this one to work to help ring in all this cold weather we have been getting. I love the way it looks on my skin tone. I think this color looks great on anyone. It's so versatile. 
V-Amplified This beauty from Sally Hansen gel is a rich maroon. It is super close to its Salon Manicure sister above, but it's the gel form.  If you haven't tried any of the Miracle Gel polishes from Sally Hansen, you should. There are so many colors to pick from and they are complete in two each steps. Step 1 is the color…

If you missed my awesome time at the Grand Opening of the Soft Surroundings store in Ross Park Mall, then you have to check this out. I fell in love with just about all things Soft Surroundings. From their clothing to their accessories to their makeup. With the holidays fast approaching, it's the perfect time to start planning out your stocking stuffers, family, friends and teacher gifts.

They have such luxurious items that will make all your gift receipts feel extra special.    I have two fragrances to share with you. Each one has it's own unique scent for that special person. They make perfect stocking stuffers! Aya Blu comes in a convenient rollerball that you can just throw in your purse for easy application throughout the day. There are notes of persian lime, purple orchid, Italian white truffle, spicy wild ginger and Madagascar vanilla. The fini…

Sephora Play! October Box

**Bought It**
Let's face it, I am never going to get my Play! Boxes out on time. I mean, I am just showing off my October one, and it's almost the end of November. So, I think from now on, I am going to share with you what I loved and what I didn't love so much from my box since I am able to actually use them. This months box was called Complexion Companions.  Urban Decay Quick Fix  Urban Decay Quick Fix is one of my favorite quick primers. I have used it in conjunction with a primer, but I have also used it on it's own. I think it woks on it's own just as good. It you are in a pinch with time, this is perfect to help complete your look without skipping your prime.  dr. brandt PoreDermabrasion Anything from dr. brandt has always been an A+ for my skin. This is unique because you use it as you would a cleanser. Wet your face, lather gently, wait a couple minutes and then rinse. I haven't been able to see any effects from this, but I do like the way my skin feels …
