Skinfix While YOU Sleep!

Image
**Press Sample**
I have had the pleasure of showing off some really great items from Skinfix lately and I am sooo happy to show off something that I have come to fall in love with. This newest item has become a regular in my nightly routine.  With the crazy dryness of the winter, my skin acts up. It gets so mad at me that it breaks out. The Calm and Repair Sleeping Mask brings back the moisture that I need plus it helps reduce the redness that I have going on.  There are four key ingredients in the Calm and Repair Sleeping Mask.  1. Green Tea Extract- this provides an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and healing properties. This has been helping with my scarring- big time!   2. Manuka Honey Extract- Honey actually helps to heal and pull out any infections or disorders of the skin. It also helps to smooth any rough areas.  3. Micro Hyaluronic Acid-  The micro part of this stumped me too. Skinfix says that hyalunirc acid is often too large to cross the skin barrier to actually work. The mic…

Zoya Party Girls!! Winter/ Holiday Collection- Part 1

**Press Samples**
Ohhhhh yes! That is what I said when I opened the box for the Party Girls collection from Zoya. The new Winter/Holiday collection features some really great colors to last you all winter long. I have half of them here to share with you today!  Nadia Nadia is a sparking "ginger" gold metallic. I love this on it's own, but it can be used as a topper if you are looking to put a little sparkle in your weekday mani. 
Fallon Zoya describes this as a pearly, mid tone, violet, magenta. For me, it really leaned on the pinky side but in the sunlight, that pearl came through and so did that magenta. 
Ming Ok, Every Winter collection needs that sassy red in it. This is that bright, scarlet red that just brings the sexy! I loooooved this color on my skin tone. It didn't lean too purple and it just look so elegant. 
Sheri Sheri is the darker version of red with the more garnet red in the collection. I love this just as much as the sexy red, but for me it's a lit…

Soft Surroundings Grand Opening at Ross Park Mall

**Press Coverage**
Ok so a couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being invited to an attending the Grand Opening of the NEW Soft Surroundings store in the Ross Park Mall in Pittsburgh!  I have never shopped at Soft Surroundings and I was so excited to be able to see their items up close and in person! You know when you shop things online? It's just not the same as when you get to see them in person. You get to feel, smell and actually see what items looked like in person.  I had such blast! Between the champagne, snacks and coupons, I had such a great time looking at all of the great items in store! I snuck in a few pictures for you guys so you can see what I got to experience. Coming up in the next couple of weeks, I will have a great gift guide exclusively from Soft Surroundings and a New Year, New You featuring some great clothing items!! If you don't already know, the Soft Surrounding mantra is to make us customers be good to ourselves and feel special every second o…

Sally Hansen has some Fall Shades and they ROCK!

**Press Samples**
Salon Manicure collection from Sally Hansen happens to be the owner of my all time favorite brushes. They make for the perfect application with out gooping or having to apply 10 different layers. I love that the bristles are thick and soft. Sally Hansen sent me two shades that are perfect for this upcoming fall weather! Sally Hansen's Fall Collection is a limited edition of 6 colors that are perfection for that sweater weather!  Lan-turn Up Sally Hansen describes this as a molten metallic chrome. I loooove this hybrid of gold, bronze flecked with shimmer. Metallics are still my go to when I am looking for a little sass in my world, especially those leaning gold.  Lan-turn Up wears softly. It doesn't have that abrasiveness of a traditional metallic. I actually have worn this several times and it's the perfect match for those big, oversized sweaters, cuffed jeans and booties. 
Tagine Supreme I am totally in love with this color! I am soooo not a bright red p…

Yes, Part Duex of the Sophisticates Collection from Zoya

**Press Samples**
I am finally getting to show you the second part of the mega Sophisticates Collection from Zoya! Part one was filled with dusty colors that we all lust after for this fall! If you missed it, you can check it out right here!  This collection will yield that same theme.... gorgeousness!!! McKenna McKenna is described by Zoya as being a soft almond with with a refined pearl. I seem to be missing that iridescent that is shown on the Zoya website, but maybe it's a lighting thing? I am ok with the soft almond on it's own, because everyone needs an array of nude shades in their collection, but I wish it would have had the shimmer in it; now that I am seeing the picture online.  
Mona This is a perfect example of lighting and what the same color looks like in different light settings. I was going to retake these pictures, but I thought it was so important since I have been seeing such different swatches of these colors especially on the website. Zoya describes this as…
