Winterize your nails with julep

As winter rolls in your nails and hands tend to get dry and nails brittle . So its time to prep your nails for winter . Here are some tips to try at home.
First lets start with moisturizing your hands .
A favorite of mine is L occitane shea butter since its not highly scented which I'm not fond of and works really well . 
Don't forget your feet! 
Juleps mint condition foot cream is a favorite of mine i put it on at night with socks and wake up with soft feet.

Next work on your cuticles which seem to go a bit wonky with the cold dry weather . Try using juleps vanish cuticle softener and remover .


Now that your hands are soft and cleaned up lets move on to the best bit colors!
You can never have enough red this julep color anisa doubles for winter and holiday parties


As I'm sure you have figured out i love purple and its also a color that works any time of the year. this color is alex 

Can you say frozen inspired aretha is perfect for winter wonderland nails!

Last but not least beatrix would love amazing layered on top of black for a nice dark winter look .

My birthday trip to California , lots of pics!

Hello! Okay so first I'd like to say sorry I've been a terrible blogger , its been months since i posted. I've been so busy with work and also I've got super into snail mail which I've  been doing for years now but i took on a lot more pals.
So onto the trip! In September I took the only real long vacation that I've had in years as a birthday gift to myself. It was really an amazing trip , the first trip in awhile i could completely not think about work for awhile and really relax. 

I went to southern California since i had gone to school out there and i think it stuck with me more then northern California . I ended up staying in Pasadena which i had actually never been to before. Aside from being far away from a lot of the places i wanted to go its really the perfect quiet kind of area for a trip. After months of yelping hotels i finally decided to stay at the Langham Huntington hotel. I'm so glad I did, I really can only think of one bad thing the whole time at this place and that was the $27 a day parking which there are no other options to lol. I can't even begin to describe how stunningly beautiful this hotel is . Also every single employee there was so kind and helpful which you think would be a given in any service industry but isn't always true lol. I even got an amazing room upgrade when i go back again I will definitely be staying there again . So first are the hotel pics so you can see a little of its beauty .


 This was my favorite spot the middle garden fountain area so pretty!


So on my actual birthday i took a trip down to my old area long beach to check out the aquarium and what used to be my favorite shoreline village.
You cant beat this view , it was the perfect sunny day.

So i had a bit of a dilemma of deciding to go to Disneyland or not , i decided it wasn't worth the $100 to go when i get to go to the much bigger Disney world when i visit my dad in Florida so instead chose just to go to downtown Disney. It ended up being my favorite night of the trip it was perfect i got the ambiance of Disney and the shopping and i discovered the amazing wonderground studios below!

Lastly I finally got to go to my favorite store in LA , Pinup Girl Clothing. I've been an online customer for years but have never got to visit their only real store it was so fun . I also picked up this yellow floral dress and saw one of their beautiful models that happened to be working there that day.

Spooky Eyes review

Awhile back i signed up for the blogger network , and i was finally excepted for one of the campaigns . I was so excited to find out that it was the colored contacts website spooky eyes .

Look zombie eyes! how fun . Sorry for the side track there but there are so many fun lenses to choose from and just in time for Halloween coming up next month .

I got to choose from the naturals collection and I was sent the natural violet circle lenses found here. These are super fun and i love that they match my hair and I feel like I resemble a cartoon character . 

 
They look blue in the photos but my camera seems to always do that with violet things .
The best part about spooky eyes contacts is they cover my very dark brown eyes with not much showing through . They aren't prescription so if you normally wear contacts you have to take that into mind . But I have a pair of glasses so I can wear them if I want to wear these out .  I really loved the way these looked on me , so very fun looking . The only negative i really have to say is that they were kind of uncomfortable . This could be due to the fact I've never worn these type of contacts and the last time i wore regular colored contacts were years ago . Also my eyes are quite sensitive. Overall when I need fun contacts I will be going back to spooky eyes


Of course I'm already eyeing a two pairs I would love to get my hands on and surprise surprise one of them are the vampire lenses lol . Check these out .


Lets also not forgot the black out contacts I've always wanted these!

I could sit here all day matching up contacts on this site to movie characters but I won't do that to you guys lol  These are all FDA approved so no worrying about getting shady contacts your afraid to put in your eyes .

So which pair would you pick?

I was provided with a free pair of contacts for this review but in now way did it affect my opinion all statements are my honest thoughts

Vox Box review

So awhile ago i signed up for influenster and I've already gotten to try two boxes! If you want to sign up leave your email and i will send you an invite . Okay back to the box!

So i took a survey and i got matched for the vow box , even though I'm not engaged or getting married its still items i can use so i was super excited to get all this stuff!


The only thing i didn't review was the olay because i have super sensative skin . I did however pass it onto my mom and will update when she tries it .

Tide to go stick: These have been around awhile but i can't remember the last time i had used one . Conveniently i managed to get something on my white shirt which usually happens when i wear white lol .
I used it on a small spot and within minutes the stain had gone , if its a touch stain you can also toss it in the wash after using the tide. Its something that will come in handy to have around .

Sally Hansen complete salon manicure: I got the shade barracuda which is a really pretty sky blue color which is great for summer . I really loved the shade the downfalls were it took 3 coats to get that color and chipped about 2 days later even with my good top coat .

Pure Silk shave cream (raspberry mist): I really like the smell on this its not to strong and doesn't leave a strong scent after which i hate . As shaving cream goes it held up and did a good job . It wasn't exceptional but i have never really used any that were so overall i liked it .

Lastly was my favorite item in the box!

EcoTools pure complexion facial sponge : I have a few ecotools brushes that i know are great so i was excited to try this because I had not seen it before .When i first got it out of the box it felt like a light weight rock but when i followed the instructions and wet it it turned into a soft sponge . I added my regular face wash and scrubbed and washed my face . I have to say it was very soft , i was even thinking it could be a little more rough to really clean your face but i really loved it . My face felt really clean after. The best part was its so much better then using your hands to wash your face.
