My New Favorite Things

1 Jun

Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment – I just had my hair colored this weekend and my colorist suggested this treatment…I get split ends really easy and she said that this will make them occur slower….I love the smell and it does make my hair feel really silky smooth and healthy which is always a plus…we will see about the acutal split end delay.  It is a bit on the pricey side about $30 or so but it seems to be well worth it so far.  I will keep you posted.

OPI nail polish in “Jade is the new Black” – I just bought this color and I love it.  It is a greenish turquoise very appropriately named “Jade” It resembles Asian Jade jewelry but a bit deeper.  I was a bit worried about this color coming off as too “teeny bopper” but it is surprisingly chic and unexpected…I love it.

“Airplanes” by B.O.B featuring Hayley Williams and Eminem – Ok so I am in love with this song.  I have always been an Eminem fan and I am a huge Paramore fan so me and Hayley Williams are like this (fingers crossed).  There is just something about rock bands that have bad ass girl singers that amazes me.   This sound just has such a cool sound and a great message.  I love rap with a message and an awesome girl track to go along with said rap with a message makes it even better.  You can check it out below and i hope you all love it as much as I do. 

“Need” by Carrie Jones – I have been a Twilight series fan for a few years and one of the things that I love most about the Twilight series is that it is a read that really sucks you in and I have had a hard time finding that again.  I went on an adventure for this same feeling this past week at Barnes and Noble in the Teen Fiction section.  I know I am not a teen but this is the quickest and cheapest way to be young again.   While I have not found another “Twilight Series” I have found a good little book that is a quick read that keeps you feeling young while sucking you in. I do feel that the book lots of detail that the Twilight series has but overall it is good so far…i will keep you posted.

OPI nail polish…addicted

13 May

So recently I have become addicted to OPI nail polish.  I have never had long or pretty enough nails to paint so I never really got into the whole nail polish thing…Well when I was pregnant and taking prenatal vitamins my nails grew and became harder so I decided to try it.

I am very big into accessorizing and making myself feel better with accessories b/c you know for a fat girl accessories always fit 🙂 So nail polish allows me to accessorize in a different way. OPI is not the cheapest nail polish it is usually about $7-$10 per bottle but it is worth it. There are so many cute colors and they go on really smooth especially for people like me that are not really good at painting nails and the colors last a long time without chipping.

Check out the OPI site..there is a really cool interactive tool that allows you to set your skin tone and nail shape and length and “try out” colors for you.  Kind of weird but fun! You can get to it by clicking on “Try it on”

I am addicted to “Barefoot in Barcelona” I wear it almost everyday…its a great neutral that goes with everything.  I also just purchased “Metro Chic” by OPI for Sephora….amazing I am in love with it… its a cool purply gray….check them out they are a great way to feel good about yourself while being chic and hip at the same time.
