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. Soft Surroundings happens to have some of the perfect gift items and you can even shop by dollar increments. 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 …

Skinfix While YOU Sleep!

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…

**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…
