Feeling Bold and Blue with #EddieFunkhouser and #CoverFX

Some products provided for review, some purchased by me.  All opinions are my own.

 Hello, Fireflies!

One of my little goals for my blog this year is to practice more with makeup, and incorporate more makeup looks.  Yesterday, I pulled out my Eddie Funkhouser Hyperreal Color Palette Girls On Film, and built a look around that.

Sunday Stamping - Frozen Snowflakes

Hello, Fireflies!

Today's Adventures in Stamping challenge was to stamp over blue.  One of my fave blue polishes, Lilypad Lacquer Sherbet, has been sitting on my desk waiting for me to use it again, so I decided to use it as a base for some stylized snowflakes and flakies!

Blue and Purple Quatrefoil Wallpaper

Hello, Fireflies!

I'm working on my third 'wallpaper' pattern for the NCC challenge this month.  I've seen a few nail artists do different versions of this Quatrefoil pattern, and I thought it would make a neat pattern to try as wallpaper.

I started with Azature Blue, an unbelievably sparkly, gorgeous medium bright blue.

Bringing My Skin Back To Life with Kleem Intensive Rejuvinating Vitamin C Serum

Product provided for review.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

With all this cold weather, even here in Florida, even my oily skin is feeling a little drab and dull.  Rich moisturizers just tend to make me break out, so I look for serums to get extra nutrients into my skin.  My favorite skin-brightening ingredient is Vitamin C, which is a big part of this Intensive Rejuvenating Serum by Kleem Organics.

Gone in Sixty Seconds - A Guest Post from Nicki Zevola of FutureDerm - and a Giveaway!

This is a guest post from Nicki Zevola of FutureDerm.com, a blog dedicated to the science of beauty.

Typically, I'm a fan of the slow-and-steady approach to getting things done. When I started running again, I started at 4.0 mph (yes, I realize that is pretty much walking), and increased 0.25 mph each run until I got back up to speed, so to speak, at 6.5 mph. When I started dieting, I cut 200 calories per week, rather than going through the whole "yes I'm juice fasting and don't speak to me" thing for a few days.

When it comes to wrinkles, I'm typically an advocate of the slow-and-steady approach as well: Steady use of ingredients like retinol, vitamins C and E, other antioxidants, peptides, amino acids, and sunscreen lead to consistent results over time.  But then a product like the Gone in Sixty Seconds Instant Wrinkle Eraser ($19.95, AminoGenesis.com) comes along. With ingredients like sodium silicate and magnesium aluminum silicate, this wrinkle eraser is tops for instantly erasing the look of fine lines and wrinkles and providing the temporary look of a little bit of a "lift." It lasts for one day, and leaves no residue. For more on the ingredients and my personal opinions (and to enter the giveaway), read on!

Neocell - The Tastiest Biotin Ever!

Product provided for review.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

Maybe you've heard my vitamin horror story before.  I used to take a lot of them.. now, not so much.  I know that Biotin is a great vitamin to take for healthier nails, hair, and even skin, and I've found a way that I can enjoy taking it!

The Clean I Didn't Expect With Michael Todd True Organics Soniclear!

Product provided for review.  All opinions are my own.

Hello, Fireflies!

Before I get started, you should know that I am an idiot.  In the picture above, the Soniclear is facing the wrong way in the charger.  Just thought I should get that out of the way.  If you buy this machine, TURN IT AROUND in the charger.

Luckily, it arrived fully charged, and a charge can last 30-40 uses, so I wasn't kept from using it.  And, use it I did.  It's like nothing else I've tried!
