September Obsessions  — September 29, 2016

September Obsessions 


Hey! Here’s what I’ve been obsessing over all September long!

The grossest/amazingest skincare item I used this month: Holika Holika Pig Nose Clear Blackhead 3 Step Kit. Works great. Pulls garbage out of you nose that you didn’t even know was in there. 


The nail color I got soooo many compliments on: Essie nail polish in Playing Koi


The Lip Color I Wore So Much I Forgot What My Lips Looked Like: Violet Voss Liquid Lipstick in Flirt


The Lashes I Fell In Love With All Over Again: Ardell Wispies


The Magical “Make Your Skin Look Better Than Ot Really Does” Powder: Ben Nye Pretty Pink Translucent Powder 


The Disgusting Thing I Ended Up Loving: Jean Pierre Happy Feet Exfoliating Foot Mask


The Food I Could Eat My Body Weight Of: Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Spice Donut 


The Drink I Spent Waaaaayyyyy Too Much Money On: Starbucks Iced Pumpkin Spice Lattes

The Face of the Day I Loved Most: This

Violet Voss Holy Grail Glitter look


The Mani Monday I Liked Best: This simple flower one. 


The Cutest Moment: Aidan’s first day of second grade. (Isn’t he the cutest?)


My Favorite New Show: The Good Place


My Favorite Returning Show: Scream Queens 

The Song I’ve Had On Repeat: Mean What I Mean by AlumaGeorge, Leikeli47 and Dreezy. Also check out I Remember by AlunaGeorge.

Mani Monday: Wet n Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel Review — September 26, 2016

Mani Monday: Wet n Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel Review


I picked this up recently at Five Below and wondered if it really works. I figured I’d document my journey and share it with you. 

Day 1: not a perfect polish job, and formula isn’t perfect, but it’ll do. 

Day 2: Looks pretty much the same. I did spill another color of polish on my pinky at work, but I just left it , as opposed to compromising this experiment 

Day 3: Still looking pretty good. Usually by now my mani is pretty decimated. 

Day 4: at this point I’m pleasantly surprised. Still looking pretty good. 

Day 5: getting some chips at the edges. 

Day 6: chips are growing. 


Day 7: And o can’t stand it any more. It’s cpretty Minh off too much. I’d guess this lasted 7 days with wear and tear of usually see in 2-3 days. 

I’ll see you tomorrow with my September Haul post!

Mani Monday — September 19, 2016

Mani Monday


Happy Mani Monday! Today I’ve brought you a little pictorial of how to get these super cute floral nails!


First, I started with a base coat of Sally Hansen Hard As Wraps Hardener. 


Next, I did two coats of Essie Nail Lacquer in Peach Daiquiri. 


I then used a dotting tool to place a tiny dot of Bonita Nail Polish in 1AM on the corner of my ring finger nail. 


I then used a small nail art brush to add some petals around the dot, with Ciate Nail Polish in Loop the Loop. 


Finally, I topped it all off with a coat of CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat! 

And that’s all for today! I’ll see you tomorrow!
