We were up at stupid o’clock on Saturday to hit up the orchards and do some apple picking. The orchard is a two hour drive away so at the butt crack of dawn we were on the road and a little exhausted by the time 11ish rolled around but at least we had apples to last us through the zombie apocalypse.
Actually, crazy but true, I make apple butter. I burn boiling water but one thing I can make is damn good apple butter!
Needless to say we were hungry after our adventures so we hit up Cracker Barrel which is a novelty in itself since we don’t really have it around our area. I absolutely adore the fact that Cracker Barrel has a little country store right in the waiting area. So even if you’re starving and feeling like you’re about to die if you don’t get some waffles and eggs in your stomach immediately you won’t mind the long wait for a table on a busy Saturday morning because you’ll be wandering aimlessly around their little store as you wait for your table! They have cute little bits and bobs, old time candy (holler at me peanut chews), and really unique little finds even beauty ones in some cases.
Which brings me to my purchase of Dionis Peppermint Hand Cream!
Dior Diorific Vernis Nail Polish ($26) returns for Holiday 2013 in two new limited edition shades released with the Dior Holiday 2013 Collection. One of which is the stunning Minuit. Have I ever told you of my slight obsession with golden grape shades?
Dior Diorific Minuit Vernis Nail Polish is the perfect golden sparkling plummy grape!
It’s rather delicious.
Take a look!
Hey nail girls the OPI Pack the Essential Case for Holiday 2013 ($49) is rather darling. How about I haul it and you can have the nail polishes and I’ll take the train case?
I really dig the train case.
The Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge ($18) recently launched and I couldn’t be happier as it has made me a double cleanser lover. I have a few Konjac Sponges, they aren’t really a new beauty epidemic however, Boscia will likely make them a more wide spread phenomenon here in the US for those that aren’t terribly familiar with Asian beauty tools and products.
As much as I’d like to be a double cleaning person I’m not. When I get home at the end of the night I typically remove my eye makeup with an oil based eye makeup remover and proceed to follow up with a cleansing oil. Occasionally if I have the time I do a double cleanse. Double cleanses consist of cleansing first with a cleansing oil and following up with a lathering cleanser or foaming cleanser of some sort.
Konjac Sponges kinda make you a believer of double cleansing because they are great gentle exfoliating sponge that really get your face super squeaky clean.

Manuka Doctor Apinourish Rejuvenating Face Mask ($85) recently launched at Sephora and just in time for the Winter weather. That’s right, Winter feels really close now. I woke up this morning, showered, dressed, stepped out of my door and the cold hit me right in the face. Brrrr!
You know what that means right?
Flakes, dullness, patchy dry areas….you know the drill and if you already have dry skin you’re probably preparing yourself for the cold weather and stocking up on products that will keep your skin as hydrated as possible.
Manuka Doctor Apinourish Rejuvenating Face Mask restores much needed moisture, tones skin, and renews your entire face in a single application.
