L’Occitane, Molton Brown, The Body Shop, Sol De Janeiro Hand Creams

One thing we can all agree upon is that we use our hands for just about everything but we do not shower them with the love and care that they need. Our hands are overworked, up against the elements, exposed to the sun, cold, dirt, chemicals etc. Hands are one of the hardest working body parts and we neglect them immensely. L'Occitane, Molton Brown, The Body Shop, Sol De Janeiro hand creams work for me.

Luckily for us there are plenty of skin nourishing, moisturizing, skin-softening hand creams in the market today. When used regularly hand creams help in keeping …

NARS Madly Blush

Nars Madly- My Most Loved Blush Review

I personally feel that the blush sometimes gets mothballed as a non consequential, minor component of our makeup routine, compared to the more predominant lipsticks and eyeshadows. But blush has been around for centuries. Ancient civilizations use dyes mixed with fat, mulberries, beet juice, crushed strawberries, flower petal extracts to get that healthy flush of color. Cosmetics also had dangerous levels of cancer causing lead in them. Over the years things have changed and now we have the power of science behind us and we are changing for the better. Now back to NARS Madly blush.

Wet N Wild Nude Awakening Palette

Wet n Wild Coloricon Nude Awakening Palette Review

I love a good, neutral eyeshadow palette. Who doesn’t? Today we will review the Wet n Wild Coloricon 10 eyeshadow palette in Nude Awakening. Oh, the thrill of finding a bargain, and if it works well, then it's a total win win situation. When this palette first came out, I was not tempted to buy it, as I thought I had many other neutral palettes. But as they say you can never have too many neutral shades of makeup. So on one trip to Target I gave in and picked it up.

Holiday Red Lipsticks

Holiday Red Lips with Hourglass, NARS, MAC and Tom Ford Lipsticks

A fun fact for you. Hewlett-Packard’s (also known as HP) name was decided in a coin toss in 1939. The name was always going to be a hyphenation of the two founders' last names, so in order to decide between Hewlett-Packard and Packard-Hewlett, they flipped a coin. I wish I could decide between colors by flipping a coin. Red or Nude… umm flip a coin!

Today I have some similar looking red lipsticks for you. But to a self proclaimed beauty addict, these have subtle differences and that to me justifies my purchases. To type the word similar looking here …

Fenty Beauty Items Review

Are you wearing makeup during quarantine? Our situation has changed so much in the past few months. From getting ready for work every morning, we went to Google classrooms and google meets, zoom calls etc. Did your makeup routine change? Mine did, definitely! I used to love my morning routine and these days things have changed a lot. On days that I have to look presentable a bit of concealer, a mattifying powder, mascara and lip balm always do the trick. As for me, I am not doing foundation much, paying more attention to skincare etc. Let me know in …

Beauty Backups

Imagine you find the perfect lipstick or blush or a skin care item and then it gets discontinued! That is disappointing…right?

Beauty Backups

This has happened to me a couple of times. And I bet it has happened to countless other beauty lovers all over the world. I have on occasion bought backups of my favorite makeup product and if I remember correctly, one time a body wash.

I have purchased a backup of my most loved blush which is, NARS Madly, because my current one is getting over. This will not happen any time soon. And there was a rumor …

Happy Thanksgiving!

Most of us look forward to Thanksgiving for delicious food, family time and the feeling of celebration that comes along with it. Instead of sensible portion sizes, we indulge in loading everything onto the same plate, in enormous quantities. Believe me I am all for that extra piece of pie! Happy Thanksgiving people!

Thanksgiving Day is a time to celebrate our loved ones, who make everything else rewarding. Along with all the excitement around this time of the year, we also spoke to the kids about the history of Thanksgiving.

I love planning the menu. Believe me when I say, …

What do you think about Nail Art?

Do you like it, love it, or think it’s tacky? I fall somewhere in between. Sometimes I like it and sometimes I don't. I like simple designs, or maybe a nail sticker on an accent nail. That does not take much effort but gives your look a unique creative twist.

Most of the time I will apply some glitter top coat, or a confetti top coat and that's my nail art. On my nails Essie nail polish in Bahama Mama and Essie Top Coat. I got these beautiful nail art tapes on Amazon.
