Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone has a safe and Merry Christmas!  I wanted to share with you with one of my favorite Christmas songs "Someday at Christmas" by Jack Johnson.  I love some Jack Johnson but that is an entire  different Blog topic:)  Enjoy!    

 
What is your favorite Christmas song?

Essie Nail Polish......Chinchilly!

I thought I would do a quick post about my current favorite nail polish.  I am so obsessed with Taupes and Greys and blogged about this particular nail polish in a previous post  On The Hunt.  Essie Chinchilly is a sleek granite grey from the Essie Fall 09 Collection Cuddle with Color and is still available for purchase.  I bought mine at Ulta of course.  Neutrals are sophisticated and and perfect for winter.        


For best results:  Apply two coats and a clear top coat.  My favorite dry fast top coat is Seche Vite.  

What do you think of this color?  What is your favorite nail polish this season?

Product Rave!

My hairdresser used this delicious smelling leave in conditioner in my hair.  So, of course I wanted to know exactly what it was and the brand.  It was KMS California Moistrepair leave-in conditioner.  I found this at Ulta and immediately purchased it.   

I'm always trying new leave in conditioners because I am obsessed with them.  I think it is important to use this in your hair especially if you blow dry and flat iron your hair as often as I do.  The first thing that draws me in is the smell.  It is infused with vanilla and aloe. Yum! It leaves my hair super soft and fresh.  Even towards the end of night, I get compliments of my hair smelling so good.  It also makes my hair super soft and silky.  The cost is around $16.00 but last forever.  It will take me a long time to get through the bottle.

Pink Friday!

I am so obsessed with Nicki Minaj right now.  She recently designed a lipstick for MAC called Pink Friday!  The drama of getting this lipstick was crazy!  Pink Friday was available online at midnight for four Fridays ONLY.  I decided I really wanted this after seeing it on Nicki during a documentary on MTV called "My Time Now".  I have her song Romans Revenge stuck in my head.  Maybe I'm crazy.  However, I did get lucky and score this baby even though the Mac website kept freezing up!

Love her look!
