We all dream of meeting The One.  That special someone that you don't know how you ever lived without.  While I'm still waiting to meet the man version of The One, I have found The One thing for my hair that I can not live without. And that is, drumroll... A mini flat iron. Yep.  It's a teeny ...

Concealer Trick: Spotlight Post

This concealer trick is one of my favorites.  It's totally brightened up the look of my face.  If you have dark circles you'll love this trick.  I use it everyday, but find it's especially helpful after a late night.  Considering Netflix released all of season 2 of "Orange Is The New Black" at once, it's ...

Sinful Colors Nail Polish Gel Tech Formula vs. Professional Formula

Okay let's overlook the fact that this was a very slap-dash-rachet polish job and rejoice in the fact that I accidentally bought the gel tech polish in the same shade that I already had in the Sinful Colors original "Professional" line.  This happy accident allowed me to really see the formulas side by side and ...

Julep Plie Wand: What The What?

Plie Wand.  You are probably saying to yourself, " What the what?" right now.  And that would be me when I first saw this thing. WHAT THE HECK IT IS:  Julep created this "plie" wand that attaches to the cap of their polishes.  You do have to use a Julep polish with it, unless you use ...
