Shop til you can't STOP~!

People it's that time of year again~! And I LOVE it! BARNEY'S is having their amazing Warehouse sale which started today and will end on Monday, September 1st! This is never an event to be missed. My personal strategy is to go closer to the end of sale as the prices are slashed from the first couple weeks AND they usually roll out more items to choose from!

I just wish the beauty counter participated in this fete :(. Then I would REALLY rack up. Well kids, have a great time finding spectacular fashions that will compliment that perfect manicure and pedicure - check for peep-toe Loubs and Chloe shoes to go with the fun purple shades of the season.

P is for On the Pulse!

Today I received ZOYA's new Fall 2008 collection Pulse and cannot wait to try~! Though the image doesn't show (I know I took it with my camera phone-I'll start uploading from my digicam soon), the polishes are vibrant metallic colors with subtle sparkles that should look fantastic on the well nailed this season.

I'll try them out this weekend and post real, clear images of how the colors appear and give my opinion on the BUST and the MUST! The collection consist of six shades from Rasperry Wine, so wisely named Rihana :), to Blackberry Plum Sloane that should carry you through winter without a chip! For non-metallic lovers check out for the second Fall 2008 collection Vibe- the cream based enamel line.

You Know You're a Beauty Junkie When...

....As soon as you arrive home you check your mailbox for Sephora's Fall beauty issue~! I arrived home this evening and opened my mailbox to retrieve my Sephora Fall beauty issue-as I knew it would be there waiting for me ;). I am always excited about the new looks and product options they provide and gosh darn-it Sephora is my FAVORITE place on earth - well one of them.

I LOVE the fact that I can consider myself a Beauty Insider because Sephora said I am~! To my hearts desire, as I flipped through the Fall issue just 5 pages in, was this page on Sephora and OPI's new nail enamel line! The collection includes 54, yes I blinked twice as well, 54 shades. 6 new shades for Fall range from bold Beige to winey-Red. I can't wait to get my hands on the collection and try it out for you all. Product review soon to follow~!

...You dash to the beauty wall at drugstores. My second love affair is with the drugstores around the city, namely CVS. Without fail everytime I walk into CVS or any drugstore for that matter I sashay directly to the beauty wall to check out any new or old beauty offerings. Yesterday I had to pry myself away from purchasing, for the second time, 2 OPI polishes from last season, Black Onyx and Russian Navy (maybe i'll purchase them next week). I love the colors and they are still very relevant for the Fall season!

...You believe that your nail polish is an accessory to your look. I believe this WHOLE-HEARTEDLY. I mean there are often times when you may feel like your entire look is not complete if your nails are bare or chipped or just not the right color. Color accessorizes our outfits. It adds that final touch to the overall look we are aiming so high to achieve.
I believe all women should consider nail color to be a part of their entire look - not just the bag and the shoes. I want to hear "I love your nail color" just as much as I love to hear "What a great bag!" Beauty is the ULTIMATE accessory and nail color should be number 1.

Nail-spiration Rih Rih

So my favorite person in the WORLD ok ok I am exagerrating, but I do have a soft spot for my fellow Bajan Princess - Ms. Rihanna~! Yes people do not hate, Ms. Thang is poppin and has it going on. In her latest trendsetting fashion spread in ESSENCE magazine, Rih Rih rocks some hot attire as well as funky Metallic nail colors by China Glaze that will keep us all feeling and partying like Rock Stars this fall. My fav is the Metallic Silver. Throughout the spread Rih sports a serious array of colors from gold to shocking silver. Not to mention that I am really digging her look with the yellow plaid dress - the grey Moschino hat definitely adds some flavor! She also wears a really nice shiny brown in the spread. I mean you can't really get flyer than her right now. You just CAN'T~!

Speaking of China Glaze they have launched their Fall color collection Rodeo Diva consisting of 12 deeply hued shades that will keep us all coming back for more. Once I try Lasso My Heart, i'll be sure to post a picture for you all to see how lovely the shade really is. Check out for more info on the collection.

With the opulence of Fall right around the corner, it's time to start thinking about how to accessorize and complete your fashion looks with nail colors that compliment your flavor and style. OPI, one of my FAVORITES, has just launched its collection of Fall/Winter colors La Collection de France. The colors are so rich and heavily pigmented that I cannot wait to try them all! Deep purples-the "IN" color for Fall-and saucy reds make up the bulk of the offerings. Posted here are my top 5 picks:

  1. Bastille My Heart
  2. I'm Fondue of You
  3. A Oui Bit of Red
  4. We'll Always Have Paris
  5. Eiffel for This Color - gotta LOVE this name

I can't wait to get my hands on this set! If the above aren't enough for you to screech with joy, there are seven other colors to fulfill your hearts desire. Check out for the rest of the collection! I'll be on a hunt to bring you more of what's hot for Fall. Enjoy :~)

Last Dog Days of Summer

In an effort to not let summer drift away sooo fast, take one of these fun colors from Rescue Beauty Lounge's pre-fall collection to your next mani/pedi trip and hold on to the days of fun in the sun. With an ode to one of our favorite cartoon shows, Spongebob Square pants, Star fish patrick will definitely enjoy the time on-land! Star fish looks great on already tanned skin and provides a continuous 'glow' for those of us loosing that sun-kissed touch :(

It's Been Too Long

So I apologize for the time duration between my first posts and this one, but I promise that this will not happen again. There is so much to tell and so little time! I HAVE to make this a priority. I mean you need your news, tips, tricks and everything else it takes to keep yourself looking FAB. So before I go into new news, I wanted to provide you all with the products I use to go along with the tips I provided you eons ago! Yea I know its a while back, but cut me slack!

I'm sure everyone knows how important it is to keep a nail file in your handbag, but a 4-point file/buffer is the ultimate necessity. You can do it all with this one, even out the rough edges, buff and shine the nail bed, and smooth out ridges. I purchased this at Walgreens for 99 cents people, 9-9 cents! Studio B product line.

Fantastic quick dry top coat that actually really does dry your nails fast! I have tried other brands and let me tell you this is by far the best! And unlike some other quick dry top coaters this one actually does have the "shine" element to it so nails are not dull. You can find this at any beauty supply store.

This cuticle groomer is pretty much the same exact one that salon professionals use. It's compact and you can carry it around in your make-up bag. I get this from any drug store that sells Sally Hansen and I even bring it with me on my weekly trips to Nails & More.

One of my favorite products and brands might I add; it leaves the skin around your nails feeling sultry smooth and your cuticles picture perfect AND the subtle shea butter scent isn't bad either. You can find this at any L'Occitane location or online.
