Sinful Colors - Prosecco

Um, hi guys!  Sorry for my long absence.  I've been a bit busy.  If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen I had my daughter, so not much time for anything at the moment!  I don't have much time for nails, which means I'm stuck with the same color for days, *gasp* the horror!  I also don't care for them AT ALL, besides a bit of filing.  Moisturizing?  Forget about it!  I'm washing my hands too much!

I was able to get out of the house unaccompanied the other day, and was able to do some polish shopping.  I was able to find the much sought after Prosecco, along with the NYC Crystal Couture collection.  I can't guarantee that you will see those anytime soon, so sorry!

Ahh, Prosecco, you are a gorgeous, gorgeous polish!  A lovely nude with lots of gold shimmer.  This looks like a dupe of one of my absolute favorite polishes Essence Irreplaceable (I apologize that that is the only swatch I have of that polish....).

Ahh, the cuticles!

And because I've been waring it for a few days, I added a matte TC to it to spice it up a bit.  As you can see, it's wearing really well, but I do prefer it shiny.

I'm so glad I was able to find this one.  It's a must have for those shimmer lovers (even more so for those golden shimmer lovers like me!), so snatch it up if you can!  And if you don't like it, I'm sure you will find a polish lover that will take it off your hands!

We'll see if I post more.  I have tons of pics from MONTHS ago that still need to be posted!  And if you would like to see more pics of my adorable daughter, make sure to follow me on Instagram.

June POPSUGAR Must Have Box

Hey guys, I have an awesome subscription box to show you today.  This is the June edition of the POPSUGAR Must Have Box.  They are a bit on the pricey side compared to other subscription boxes, priced at $39.95, but they include all full sized products that well make up for the price.

June POPSUGAR Must Have Box

This is an awesome box!  Completely reminds me of a day at the beach.  We have the beach towel, the summer reading, snack, after sun lotion, hair ties and the wet wipes!  Very cool!

The One and Only by Emily Giffin

This is not a book I would normally read, but I'll try it.  I'll have some free time in the next few months after the baby is born, and I need some new books!

You Smell Lemon Wet Wipes

I LOOOOOVVVVVE these!  They're ultra thick, with just the right amount of moistness (that's what she said, giggity, giggity....sorry, couldn't help it!).  They have a very, very mild lemon scent.  They make your hands super soft (must be the aloe).  I'm going to keep a few of these in my truck and purse, these are GREAT for on the go.  I'm definitely going to repurchase these!

Lollies Basics Hair Ties

These are so freaking cute!  They don't work for my hair (I have very thick and heavy hair), so I've actually used these as bracelets!

Sachajuan Body Lotion in Shiny Citrus

This is a lovely summertime lotion.  The scent is very mild, and I would call it citrus with a little floral scent in there ( I just read the back of the label and it totes a "fresh citrus and jasmine" scent, that's why I'm smelling floral!).  It's a very light lotion which makes it great for summer.  It's not greasy, and works in quick.  AND it makes my skin soft.  It also has anti-ageing and anti-irritant properties as well which would make it a great for after a long day in the sun.

Turkish-T Towel

This towel is huge.  It can be used as a beach towel.  If you've ever been to Seattle, you know we don't have beaches where you can use a beach towel.  We have rock beaches....nobody wants to spend time on the ground when you're sitting on a bunch of rocks (we do have a few sand beaches, but the sand is really dirty, yuck!)!  Anyways, I could see using this as a picnic blanket, but it is a bit on the thin side.  I could see using this as an over sized scarf.  It says you can use it as a wrap as well.  If I ever make it to Hawaii, maybe I'll get a chance to use this! : )

One Potato Two Potato Kettle Chips

Mmm, these chips were so good!  They taste like Tim's Cascade Luau BBQ, which I have a weakness for!

Native Union $15 gift voucher

Native Union has a bunch of cool gadgets for your iPad or iPhone.  Along with portable speakers, power cables, etc.  I don't own ether, so I'm not sure that I will use this.

They really know how make an awesome theme box!  If you would like to purchase your own POPSUGAR Must Have box, you can do so by clicking here.

**POPSUGAR provided me with a complimentary POPSUGAR Must Have box.  The opinions I have shared about the box are my own and POPSUGAR did not tell me what to say or how to say it.

Dance Legend - The Knight

Hi friends!  Hope you guys are doing well!  I've actually been feeling well, except now I have this crazy pelvic pain.  I'll take it though, cause I feel a little better overall.  But crap, it's just one thing after another!  As much as I don't want to be pregnant, I want this to slow the eff down!  We are not at all prepared!  My guy, as much as I love him, is driving me crazy!  The room that we have set aside for the baby, is full of workout equipment and boxes.  And well, I can't move them.  First it's "well I can't move it till I clean the garage", then it's "I need a shelf in the garage so I can move the boxes there", then it's "I can't move it till I get a shed to move the garden equipment out of the garage" and this weekend it was "I need a hand truck to move the boxes and stuff".  Ugg!!  So we got the hand truck this weekend, so we'll see what happens this weekend!  I just want to get the nursery done!! : )

I've wanted this polish since I saw it on Deborah's blog back in Feb.  I literally ordered it the moment I got done reading the post.  And it only took THREE MONTHS to get to me!  No joke!  I will never order from Russia again!  Had I known that Llarowe would carry it, I would have bought it from there.  It really makes me wish I bought two bottles!  As it seems to be sold out both from Llarowe and Dance Legend, and it was a limited edition.  So sorry!

This is honestly the most unbelievable multichrome I have ever seen.  It's copper, steel gray, olive, steely blue....I'm sure there are other colors I left out.  But it's just amazing!

If you can find this, DO.NOT.HESITATE!  Buy it right away!  And I'm sorry for showing it to you, when it's so HTF!  Sorry, sorry!!

The Lady Varnishes - Dwimorberg

 Hi friends!  Hope you're enjoying your long weekend.  I always have a long weekend as I get Sun, Mon and Tues off, so Mon holiday's are never an extra day off for me.  Oh well!

I have another Lady Varnishes polish to show you.  After I wore Erebor, I immediately went out and bought three other polishes from the There and Back Again collection.  This one stood out to me the most.  This one is Dwimorberg.

Dwimorberg was part of the White Mountains that we found the Army of the Dead from Return of the King.  And this color completely reminds me of the Army of the Dead.

I can't even begin to describe the color.  It's obviously green.  But it flashes pink, emerald and gray.  It's absolutely stunning.  I couldn't capture the gray or pink in any of my pics, but check out the listing as the blogger does a much better job of capturing this color.

This whole collection dries matte, but hot damn if it isn't absolutely gorgeous with topcoat!  I couldn't NOT put it on!

I have two more colors from this collection to show you (once I finally wear them of course), so be on the lookout for those!

Have a great day!

The Lady Varnishes - Erebor

Hi friends!  I expect there will be more, but I hope to get some post's scheduled here soon.  I've run into unexpected complications with my pregnancy so I haven't wanted to do much of anything, let alone blog. But I was excited to show you guys this polish, so here I am!

I received this polish in the mail early this week, and boy was it a lovely surprise!  The Lady Varnishes just might be my favorite indie, and owner Kristen is super nice to work with.

She sent me this polish in Erebor, and YES, it's collection based off the regions of Middle Earth!  Que geeky Tolkien freakout moment for me! lol!

Anyways, Erebor (which is named after the Lonely Mountain, of the Hobbit fame) is a unique polish that I can't quite describe.  It's a grayed out mauve-ish base with lots of shimmer.  The base shifts a little from the mauve to a more red-ish pink.  There's pink and green shimmer, with larger silver flecks throughout.  It also dries matte, but I liked it better with topcoat, so that's what you see here.

You will be seeing more from this collection from me, as I jumped on Etsy right away to purchase more from Kristen.  Hopefully I can show you guys those soon.  

The Lady Varnishes can be purchased through Etsy, she makes all sorts of collections from movies, books, TV shows that inspire her.  Lots of them for nerdy people like me!  So please check her polishes out!
