Essie Fiesta

I am loving pink polishes lately. So pretty for spring. I also figured out that with Essie, if I apply 3 coats, my mani will last a lot longer. Great color!

Spring lust list

1. Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer with spf 20. I have never tried this, but have heard nothing but good things about it. I love a good tinted moisturizer for summer. Hopefully it will be worth the splurge. 2. I recently purchased Mrs Meyers hand soap in lavender, and it is the most amazing stuff ever. I actually look forward to washing my hands now. Lol. So I went on the website and was so excited to see that they have candles! I think I will be ordering this in the next couple of days. I also bought the laundry detergent in lemon verbena, and I very happily did laundry all day yesterday. So needless to say, I am completely obsessed with this brand. I plan on replacing every cleaning product I own with Mrs Meyers! 3. TB flip flops. Need I say more?? :) 4. I have heard really great things about American Cream conditioner from Lush. I think I will just buy the smaller bottle first to see if it lives up to the hype. 5. Chanel le vernis in dragon. This red is so pretty! Dark just enough and not too bright. Can't wait to try this one out.

Weekend iPhone pics

1. Essie Instant Hot 2. Inspiration from a pottery barn catalog. Love the mirrored dresser and frames. 3. My sleepy baby in his new favorite spot {the chair in our computer room}. 4. On Sunday we went to the Titanic Exhibition at the Henry Ford Museum. It was really cool except for the mass crowds of people.. 5. Mini Haagen-Dazs I discovered at the grocery store yesterday! Perfect! :)

Just a few things :)

-My new favorite candle- voluspa crisp champagne. So yummy!
-Essie minimalistic. Love this. I have been wearing a lot of sheer pinks and whites lately. They are so versatile.
-New Essie's! From L to R: no more film, mod square, like to be bad, a crewed interest, instant hot, and blanc.

Favorite recent products

1. Lush Mint Julips. Omggggg. I am really obsessed with the stuff. You rub it on, then lick it off. It freshens your breath while softening your lips! Uh-mazing.
2. Revlon lip butters. I have always been a lipgloss and Chapstick kind of girl. But these have become my favorite and go to lip products. I have them in almost every color, lol. Some are very pigmented, and others are sheer. My favorites right now are lollipop, sweet tarte, and strawberry shortcake. All three of these are very pigmented. Lollipop is a bright fuchsia, sweet tarte is a bright, hot pink, and strawberry shortcake is a milky, light pink. These not only have great color, but are very moisturizing too.
3. Oscar Blandi volumizing dry shampoo. I love this because it has a fresh citrus scent, and doesn't leave any white residue. It's so easy to use too! Just spray on the root and comb through. I bought the smaller sized container from ulta because I wasn't sure if I would like it, and $23 is a lot to spend if you're unsure. But I will definitely be going back to get this once it runs out.
4. Stila smudge proof eyeliner in peacock. I like to use this on my upper water line and sometimes the lower one. This adds an amazing pop of color. Makes my eyes look very green, too. I like it best paired with a gray eyeliner for the top lid and a neutral eyeshadow {my favorite is Chanel lotus}. Very pretty!
5. Benefit they're real! I LOVE this mascara. I have short, fine eyelashes and this literally makes it look like I have falsies on, hence the name. I also love the longer bristles on end, they are great for the corner lashes. The only downside is that is gets clumpy after a little while. But still a great mascara!
