Spoiled Essie and Loreal nail look !

I spotted this gorgeous glitter Spoiled nail polish at Cvs a few weeks ago. It is in the color Jewelry Heist. It has this pretty rose gold color to it. Which is why I bought it. So I decided to pair it with my Loreal Grey Expectations #360, then the base coat under the glitter was Essie Ballet slippers.

Only con to the spoiled glitter polish was that it literally took 6 coats to achieve the look. Its a very sheer polish. So in order for you to get the true color from the bottle you have to put on a lot of coats. So I'm sure it will be hard to take off. If you only do 1 finger per hand I think it will be ok. This is the look I got.

What I like is that even though I had to do about 6 coats for the glitter polish, the nail polish feels smooth. Not gritty. Big plus. Hope you enjoy. Click the picure for the large view. I had to upload to photobucket since my storage on blogger is full LOL!

How to remove foundation off makeup brushes

So I have been trying to find ways to get my revlon colorstay off my makeup brush. I have tried just shampoo, dawn dish soap... and nothing gets the foundation off all the way..

Well I finally figured it out! sweet. So This is all you need.

1) 91% alcohol which you can buy anywhere
2) empty old container to pour the alcohol in

Then all you do is add about 1-2 inches of alcohol to the container, then start to dip your makeup brush in the solution. Swirl the brush around to get the middle of the bristles wet. Then once the container is full of icky foundation lol just rinse the container out..and rinse the brush.
Then put your brush under warm water to rinse it off. Make sure to rinse your brush off holding the bristles down, so that water does not get into the end of the brush. Where the handle will start to weaken then fall off. I did this before and had to glue the handle back on. Whoops.

Repeat the process until the brush is all clean.

 They are now nice and clean. I attached my video on how to do it.

Christmas! Picture heavy

I love Christmas. It is the one time of the year that I automatically get in a very happy mood. The Christmas music, the pretty decorations, the wonderful home cooked meals. Its an amazing time of the year. My husband loves it just as much as I do.

This year will be so much fun. Lexi is 2 now, so Christmas is going to be very special. I cant wait to see her open all of her own presents. Tyler is 10 and he is just as excited as we are, to have Christmas time arrive. LOL of course he is excited for present time as well.

We now have been in our new house for 6 months. It was such a change to decorate the house, going from a 1600 sq foot home into a 5000sq foot. Lots more to decorate, but I got it all figured out.

I forgot to post my Christmas pics after I put them up. Rob and I always put up our Christmas stuff Nov 1st. That is his birthday, and its the one gift I can always give to him. It always makes him happy and its a tradition we have been doing for many years.

Here are some pics enjoy :)

Goody Spin Pin

I got this product in my Influenster Vox Box. I have seen these everywhere and always wondered how they worked. So Im glad I got these. They are simple to use.

All I did was make a low bun, then I took 1 pin and twisted it into the top of the bun and the bottom of the bun.
I thought it would tangle when I twisted it back out, but it never did. I tried it out a few times, and each time it never tangled. Much easier to use then sticking 10 boopy pins all over the bun. lol.

Awesome product to add to your hair accessories.

Not your Mothers Smooth moves

I Got this amazing product in my Infuenster Vox Box. Im always looking for new product to help control my frizzy hair. I don't have smooth shiny hair Naturally. Maybe when I was a kid I did lol. But not anymore.

The 1st thing I noticed with this cream is how amazing it smells. Coconut! Yummy. I swear every time I use it Im reminded of summer and a beach!
Its not a thick cream, it is more of a thin consistency. It smooths my frizz and makes my hair look great!This is not expensive either. Its a great product and would love to try more of the line out.

Kiss fake eyelashes

I love fake eyelashes, they always make me feel very glamed up! I do not wear them daily, I only wear them when I go out on a date with the hubby or when I go out with friends.

I always wear the E.L.F lashes or the Ardell lashes, and now that I have tried the Kiss lashes Im going to be wearing these a lot more!

The kit was simple to use, and the lashes are wonderful quality. I forgot to take a pic the night I wore them though :( but they are wonderful! go get them.

Nyc Individual Eye color palette

I love finding new eyeshadow palettes. When I got my Vox box from Influentster I was excited to try this out.
The color payoff is amazing! it is very inexpensive and it is just as good as other eyeshadows that go for $15-20 per shadow.

The eyeshadow blends very well and you can create any look you want. Simple looks or more smokey looks. I will forsure be trying out the other colors in the line.

Bath and Body works Pumpkin cupcake

I love the fall, there are so many wonderful things about the fall. The gorgeous autumn colors, the cool crisp air. Wearing comfy sweaters and of course thanksgiving :)

I also love to burn fall candles.

I got this Bath and body works Pumpkin cupcake candle in my influenster vox box. I burned it right away. The smell was amazing! This was a mini candle, but it sure packed a good punch lol. Smells wonderful. This will be a candle I plan to burn every fall. It is not an overwhelming cupcake smell at all. Its is very pleasant.

I also got a $10 coupon for the 3 wick candles. I unfortunately did not get to use it in time :( bummer.

I did receive these products free for testing purposes. These are my personal opinions.
