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

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.

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.

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.

Fall Nail Colors

Fall Nail Colors

I love nail polish. Though the title says Fall nail colors, I wear any nail color that calls out to me. What I mean is I do not keep certain colors for specific seasons. I wear red during the Holiday season and also enjoy wearing it whenever I feel like irrespective of it being the Holidays or not. That being said, I definitely can relate to wearing some bright or pastel colors during summer and darker shades during fall & winter.

For today's post I have 5 nail colors that I am into these days. A few from Essie, my …
