Quick! What Should I Buy? Holiday Gift Guide 2014: The Girl Talk Chronicles E-Book on!

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Hey Everyone!!

I have a great gift suggestion for my book lovers, collectors and tablet readers. The Girl Talk Chronicles: Advice on How To Manage Love, Lust, & Situations is a great gift and nice quick read for the 20-something in your life that is struggling with love and life. Or that 40-something that's still stuck in her 20-something ways and wondering why things haven't changed in love in a two decades. Both ladies could use this e-book sent directly to their Kindle or Kindle App! Check out what the author, Ariel C. Williams says about her book:

Chronicles was written to dispel the myth of being 'single and lonely' by sharing real life experiences of relationships (and situationships) gone wrong! It's hilarious, relatable, and penetrates your conscious in a way that makes you unapologetically put you first. It's laced with Girl Talk Gospels, Lessons Learned & Chronicle Questions that have been said to make one "reevaluate" their actions when it comes to love. You can find this book in the self-help section, but still be able to read aloud with your girlfriends on a comfy couch. The best part is that it's $2.99 for a limited time and can be downloaded to the device of your choice in 60 seconds! 

I agree totally with Ariel, it was a fun read, filled with the stories, I could totally relate to, especially in my 20s, pre-kids.

Slide through and download your book to your Kindle or your Kindle App HERE for ONLY $2.99. Then, send all your girlfriends one and plus that 40 year old co-worker.:) All the girls deserve a piece of the Chronicles!

Disclosure: I was not compensated for the review and received a loaned copy of the book to read. All opinions are my own and honest.

Review & Swatches: Colour Pop Cosmetics Lippie Stix......

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Disclosure: I purchase all these items on my own.

Hey Everyone!!

I placed an order with Colour Pop Cosmetics on Thanksgiving. After watching a zillion hauls and swatches on the brand and I wasn't impressed. It wasn't until I saw a IG photo of vlogger/blogger Ellarie wearing the shade Ellarie, I was sold. 

 I picked only four colours of the Lippie Stix, just to feel them out: Grind, Dalia, Ellarie, and Brink.
 Grind, Dalia, Ellarie, and Brink
Top Row: Ellarie and Dalia
Bottom Row: Grind and Brink


Quality- great coverage, one layer of color did the trick, they go on like a satin lipstick but have a dry down quality that turns them matte. They last ok, not through eating and drinking though, but I didn't expect them to.

Color- I love all the colors except Brink. It just doesn't flatter my complexion. Grind is a MAC Heroine dupe.  Check it out below.....

Left: MAC Heroine  Right: Colour Pop Grind. Grind maybe slightly darker but you be the judge.


I will be getting a couple (3 or 4 more colors) and the next order will be some their shadows to try too!


My shipping took about a week in a half, about 6 business days. I did order on Thanksgiving night. I also wasn't sent a shipping notice for 4 business days. So, be mindful if you order, your goodies may not come as fast because of the popularity of the brand now and the holidays. I was told that by a CS agent from Colour Pop in a email. :)

Pin Of The Week: The 5 Piece French Wardrobe Basics List.....

Tuesday, December 09, 2014

Hey Everyone!

I've always been obsessed with the basics of a wardrobe list starting with the Color Me Beautiful book I used to check out all the time at the local library when I was little girl. It wasn't until I worked for Ann Taylor in the early 2000s that a lot of the pieces on this list made perfect sense! I was in my  20s and had tons of throw away, trendy, HOOCHIE MAMA clothes and I was working at the store that I was sell a $400 black suit several times a week! Plus, I had to tone it WAYYYY down to dress for work. Buying the basics like a black cardigan, a black blazer, a white button up, black pumps then mixing and matching with accessories and some of leftover clothes really help me pull it together day after day.

After I became a mommy, my lifestyle and my job situation changed drastically and I found myself with actually very little clothing. Me, the "fashion diva" with very little clothing. But, I worked at two places that I wore an uniform and I was at home a lot with the boys, what did I need with a new pair of black stilettos for? Now it's time to build the basics back up, not for anyone else, but for ME. It's sort of difficult to shop for me, that damn mommy guilt.But if I don't look good, I don't feel good and a bad feeling mommy is not a conducive mommy! lol!

I'm like the guy who never leaves Starbucks, just drinking coffee refills all day and using the Free WiFi, over there.:) I'm holding down the fort!

A Fresh Coat of Polish: Rimmel Pro in Balmy Blue.....

Hey Everyone!!

I wore another one the Rimmel Pro polishes in Balmy Blue last week. I can safely say that the formula and quality of those polishes are some of the best in the drugstore. The quality is OPI quality and I'm so serious about that. OPI polish loves my nails but not my pockets. I still have several old OPIs because I've only wore a $8 polish once and I refuse to throw it away.

But at $3, I must go and get a couple more Rimmel Pro colors. But trust, I'll be wearing a $3 polish more than once. The principle is the same for me.
