Welcome Back!

Hi Everyone!


 I am back, after taking a three year break to go back to work, have another baby, and go back to school. Amongst all of this chaos I have felt a need to have something simply for myself; an outlet where I can share all my loves, interests, and passions.

This blog used to be a great fondness of mine and I felt a nagging need to continue on with something that used to bring me such a sense of delight. So here I find myself writing my first post in what seems like forever!! 

As my life has changed and evolved I hope that this blog will as well. Rather than just blogging about beauty and fashion I would like to open up and discuss lifestyle, what I've been reading and listening to, health and delicious recipes! Of course I will still share my love of makeup and clothing as well!

I would love to know what you guys have been up to and what topics you would enjoy reading about! Love you all!

Style Spotlight: Rachel Bilson ❤

Hello my loves
I forgot how much I love doing Style Spotlights! I get so much inspiration from other ladies style! I was watching The Bling Ring last night and it totally reminded me of how much I love Rachel Billson's style!  Some girls evolve their style overtime but I feel like Rachel Bilson is someone who has always had a very simple, crisp, and girly look!

This girl sure loves her neutrals! She adds her own feminine touches that make it so
chic, I just love it! She seems to be on point with trends without being to trendy. Of course you suspect someone who has a shoe company would be fashionable, but in Hollywood that is not always the case!
Do you love Rachel's style?

OPI Pedal Faster Suzi❤

Hello my loves
Hope you all are enjoying your week so far! Although the days are longer they seem to be going by SO much faster! Does anybody else feel like summer always flies by? Or is it just me? Anyways, today I wanted to share one of OPI loves (it's hard to find an OPI I don't love!)
                                                            Pedal Faster Suzi

Every girl needs a baby pink sparkly polish and this one is great! It is a bit sheer so if you do have longer nails you can see through your tips. If that bothers you you can always put a base coat of pink or white. The formula on this is perfect. Because it is a sheer color you need three thin coats, but if you use a base coat two is perfect! I am obsessed with this nail polish and would recommend it to anyone!

                                                     Would I Re-purchase? Absolutely!
                                                              Price: $8-10 at most Salons

Weekly Update ❤

Hello my loves ❤
I have been absent a lot lately like I mentioned in my last post. I thought it would be good to do a little update of what I've been up to!

I could organize my nail polish over and over again,
I just love it!
                        I picked up a couple new ScentSationals wax cubes from Wal Mart.
                 I chose Red Velvet Cupcake and Tropical Fiesta! I love to use these during
                     the day & then burn candles at night. I love my house to smell all day long!
                       My mom and sister surprised me with Prada Candy for me for mothers day!
                                                     They are way to sweet to me!
                                 I have been obsessed with eggs for breakfast lately;
                    on bagels, hard boiled, with salsa, etc. Any way, I just love them!
                                       I am currently reading The Wives of Bath.
                   Grant and the kids got me this beautiful flower basket for Mothers day!
                                                                     Mothers day :)
                                                  My babes hanging out together!
                                                 More organizing of all this craziness!
                                  My goal is for the house to be completely organized
                                 by the time I go back to work. So far it is going slow :(
        I received a new VoxBox with these Impress nails find my review of them here
                                                                  more organizing.....
                                 I made this Pinterest project for my mom for mothers day!
                             I wish the writing turned out nicer. Other then that I am very pleased!

                                      Have a great day :)

BroadWay ImPress Press on Nails Review❤

Hello my loves
Sorry I have been absent lately, I have had back to back family visiting for the last couple weeks. So needless to say things have been a little hectic! Anyways last week I received a VoxBox from Influester that had not one but two packs of Broadway Impress Press on nails! I was pretty excited because these designs I actually liked! That's about as far as my liking went for just a warning this will not be a 'good' review if that is what your looking for...

I received two packs of Impress nails
The pack on the left is from their new Villains Collection, this one is Maleficent.
The pack on the right is a pretty pink nail with black, white, and silvery blue details.
                                                  The design on these are very pretty!
                                   They look glossy and as nice as if you got gel nails.
                                                 They also don't chip which is a plus!
The first problem I have with these is how darn short they are! These are ridiculously short. I mean I do not have long nails by any means but even when I filed down my nails
they were still poking out. I had to force my self to file them in the first place
and was not about to make them any shorter. 
Even though these were short they did not fit my nails in width. You could see
my nails a great deal on both sides.
When I first saw these I laughed because it reminded me of when I was in high school
and we would all get the glue on nails, those were terrible! And they never stayed on for
more then a day. These stayed on for three, none fell off on the third day
but when I ran my fingers through my hair my hair kept getting caught under the nails
to a point that it would rip out my hair.
You could also see that the tips were beginning to lift. I am sure one
of them would have lifted by the next day.
These looked bulky and felt bulky overall not a win for me!
Have you tried Impress nails?
What was your experience with them?
Please Note* This product was sent to me for Review. All opinions are from my own experience.

China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On ❤

Hello my loves
                   Sorry I have been so absent lately I have been very lazy! Yes I admit it!
             So I will just get right into this nail polish because I have a lot to say about this!
I picked up Keep Calm, Paint on last year when it came out. I absolutely love the color of it (creams with fine glitter are my favorite!) I love how light this mint is it really reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream! My love for the color is probably the only reason I put up with the formula of this because man oh man it is bad!

When I first bought this the formula was on the thicker side, workable bought noticeably thick. I went to use it again this winter and it was beyond thick! You could not even it out and it would not dry because it was so thick and goopy! Yuck! I am hoping that nail polish thinner will fix this but I am quiet disappointed! This bottle is practically full and usually nail polish thickens when it gets low or has been left open! I really expected more from China Glaze! Oh well....
                                                        Would I Re-purchase? Probably not!
                                                            Price: $6 at Sally Beauty Supply
 Do you own Keep Calm, Paint On? Did you have better luck?
