Pink Beauty Products that I *Heart*



Happy Valentine's Day to all! I hope everyone has a day filled with candy hearts, ping & red & LOVE :) Oh, and fun beauty products!Outrageously Delicious Hard Candy Flavored Body Powder
The best part about these shimmers is that they are flavored...they actually taste good! They leave a soft shimmer on your body with just a few sweeps. All shimmers seem to be the same, even though they are tinted different colors in the containers. Honey, Cocoa, Pink Sugar & Marshmallow - all produce a light shimmer, perfect for your neck, chest and shoulders.
You can find these at Walmart for $6.27 a pop!


AVON Glazewear Lip Gloss
This is a great gloss. Goes on smooth and stays on for a long time. I love it in Iced Pink (second one from the left in picture). It's super girly pink, with a hint of frost. You can buy these from your local AVON representative or order online at avon.com. They are on sale for $2.99 right now (normally $6.)!!
All your beauty products need a place to belong, and that place should be stylish. Check out these personalized cosmetic bags by Simply-Bags.com. Perfect for organizing your cosmetics/jewelry at home, and perfect for traveling. The best part, you can personalize them, with your name or initials. These make wonderful gifts, specifically I'm thinking for bridesmaid gifts!I know this product is purple, but it's so good I have to include it. Dark Kiss by Bath and Body Work is my new favorite scent. It's vanilla-berry scented, and stronger than most of their (not in a bad way). The Shea Cashmere Hand Cream is amazing. A little on their pricier side, so wait for it to go on sale before splurging.

Sinful Colors 'Pretty In Pink' Collection


Pink or red? Your only options for Valentine's Day colors :)

Check out Sinful Colors 'Pretty in Pink' Collection. Beautiful shades of pinks...and majorly affordable! You can find Sinful Colors nail polish in drugstores (in and outside of the US), and at the affordable price of $1.99! I'm wearing Soul Mate in my pictures, with a base coat, 2 color coats, and fast drying top coat. The nail polish went on really smooth. This color specifically would look awesome with a tan (fake tan, that is!).Here is a breakdown of the colors in the collection:
Pink Forever - Bazooka meets Bam-Bam to equal beautiful
Beautiful Girl - Classic ballerina with a flirty finish
Glass Pink - Sheer, shiny, shimmer-happy bliss
Boom Boom - Magenta-infused pink, which pops on toes and tips alike
Scandal - No-nonsense neon, slick and sensational
Soul Mate (pictured) - Muted peachy pink with a melon twist

On a separate note, check out this awesome ring I got from Forever 21. It's a double ring, so it fits around my ring finger and middle finger. I get so many compliments on a $6 ring!

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas - Part 1

Need some ideas for fun Valentine's Day gift ideas for friends? Or girlfriends (boys - I'm talking to you!)? Here are some great products and sales:


The best part about Valentine's Day is giving and receiving Valentine's Day cards! I'm loving Bonnie Marcus Collection cards, especially this one. Be unique this year and buy cards no one else will have! The best part: a portion of the proceeds from the sale of her products, will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and other organizations promoting breast cancer awareness.Bath & Body Works is really promoting Valentine's Day this year, they have tons of heart-themed items. I fell in love with these PocketBac anti-bacterial gels. There are 5 different 'love' themed ones, and right now they are $5 for 5. I bought them for my coworkers!

Super Bowl Sunday Manicure


Not into the Super Bowl? You're not alone. I'll be 'half' watching the game with friends, mainly tuning into commercials and the half time show. If you'll be partially tuning in, why don't you multitask and take care of your tips. Give yourself a fun DIY mani! Maybe paint them your team's colors? Mine would be black and yellow for tomorrow's game (Go Steelers!).




Manicure tips:
1) Remove old nail polish completely
2) File those nails! I like to keep them square, personally. A trick my friend Tina told me is to make sure you don't 'saw' them, going back and forth with the file, instead, file just one way, for example, right to left, it's better for the nail.
3) Buff'em! I like the 3 way buffer from Sally Beauty by Tropical Shine and the Lil' Whistler, which is easy to use because of it's shape.
4) Apply cuticle oil (I love Handbag Holiday and CND Solar Oil) and then soak the nails in warm, soapy water. Make sure to use a fun scented soap, dime size amount of your favorite body wash :)
5) Dry of your hands and push back cuticles gently with an orange wood stick or cuticle stick
6) Wash off cuticle oil (nail polish does not go over cuticle oil well) and make sure to lightly scrub over nails. You can use an exfoliater as well, to remove dead skin cells. Try Reversital as an exfoliater, helps hands look younger. Also works on elbows and removing self tanning mistakes :)
7) Base coat time, try Poshe 4-in-1 Treatment Base Coat
8) 1-2 coats of color (usually 2, unless you're using Avon, which goes on really well with just one). Make sure to wait at least 4-5 minutes in between coats, or else your nails will remain really sticky. Pictured to the right is Spa Ritual in Enlightened.
9) Top coat - I like Barielle's No-Chip Speed Dry
10) Now don't touch anything for 30 minutes! Well, maybe a small little Super Bowl snack, but be careful not to smudge'em!

A really good manicure kit that contains everything you need for a salon equivalent DIY is Ms. Manicure's Handy Dandy Mani contains everything you'll need to make your tips pretty.
